This Week on CENtral Science: Alan Alda, the Alps, C&EN’s 90th, and more

Tweet of the week: What day of the week is it? Friday? My sleep pattern's been off since I flew back from ACS Indy. I might have gotten very little shuteye while there, but I had a blast masquerading as a geography supercriminal and celebrating C&EN's 90th with Alton Brown. (Incidentally, I owned quite a few My Little Pony's in my day. I would totally incinerate those new ponies I see in Wal-Mart. Is there no respect for the 80s originals?) Our writers on the network have been every bit as busy as I have- and some even busier. Have a look at the last two weeks' posts for yourself: C&EN Goes to the ACS Meeting Tumblr: Too many posts to count. But you should check them out.
