Greetings fellow science enthusiasts!
We’ve had quite a few new people register since last month, so welcome. Tyler is out on the ‘Insomnia Tour’ this month so I will be doing the newsletter. Since last month’s newsletter, we have seen some pretty impressive topics covered on our forums, and I hope you’ve been taking at least a little time out of your busy schedules to read them. If you haven’t, now is your chance! I’ll be going over what’s been going on and what you can expect throughout the upcoming month. As always, please let us know what you think and ask any questions you may have in each topic’s comments.
