I just found out today (thanks to Sean Carroll over at Cosmic Variance) about a relatively new blog over at NPR.org, with the curious name 13.7. The name is shorthand for our current era - 13.7 billion years after the big bang - and the blog focuses on science and culture discussions, in the thoughtful way that one would expect from NPR.
This is a group blog, consisting of a science journalist, an astrophysicist, a theoretical physicist, and two biologists, and their current discussion is a debate of the relative merits and shortcomings of reductionism in science. To what degree is it possible, or preferable, to reduce nature down to a few limited fundamental equations? Is a theory of everything possible? Is there room for, say, religion or beauty in such a universe?
Well, I certainly don't know the answer, but I love contributing to the discussion. This new blog looks like it'll have some great discussions to join in on, and I urge you to do so as well, if the interplay of science and culture is of interest to you.
And, if you're looking for some more great physics reading, check out my list of Interesting and Useful Physics Blogs. Have suggestions for blogs that aren't currently on the list? Let me know by leaving a comment.
