Meera is among the esteemed nominees for this year's Science Prize from 3 Quarks Daily! Yay, Meera!
You have a week to read the many nominees and vote for your favorite. Even if you have no interest in voting, rest assured that these stories are well worth reading.
[Disclaimer: I haven't actually read any except Meera's yet, but I know 3 Quarks has a good reputation, and so do many of the nominees.]
I'll be using the linked list as a reading list until I get sick of it (even I can only take so much science), and I'll try to share any I find especially intriguing.
