Five years old!

By Ed Yong | August 12, 2011 7:01 pm

Here’s a brief note to commemorate the fact that Not Exactly Rocket Science is five years old today!  Once again, thanks to my wife, my science writer colleagues and all of you for giving me the motivation and support to carry on writing.

And by coincidence, I’m flying off to Peru for my first field-reporting assignment. More on that later.

  8. I don’t know what I’d do without your blog, I keep up with other science blogs but you gather up all the most exciting stuff. You’ve brought things to my attention that I later reported on for my Cracked articles and my own website.
