Newton is a site where you can ask unusual questions of a team of scientists–ones that might not be covered in the classroom or textbook–  and you will get a response in layman’s terms.  The fields of life and applied science, mathematics, and computer science are addressed.  There are so many interesting topics covered—it’s fun to browse the archive of past questions by subject, or the ‘frequent’ questions section.  You never know what you’ll learn!  Tuesday’s Tip — August 12, 2014 (Newton’s Ask a Scientist Website)
