Science Fiction Inspiration for the Week ending January 31, 2016

SingularityThese are the scientific fields I found trending this week. Most times I take what I can get, but are there fields more popular than others? Are there better headings for my links?

Update: I tried to make the headings clickable links, but it’s not working out right and takes to long to code so I will have the headings up before the more tab so you can have an idea what kind of links I’m offering this week.

Update: I figured out how to make jump links within posts after all. When you are in the full blog post you can click the heading you want and you can jump to it. Now that I know a simple way to code it in html it will be featured in future posts.

Space Race     Singularity     Gadgets

Environment     Physics     Paleontology
