Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

tags: ,

The newest addition to the growing plethora of Nature journals, Nature GeoScience, is now available for free, although how long this will last is anyone’s guess. I suspect that, like any good crack dealer, the Nature people will charge you a lot of money to access this journal’s content after you’re hooked. That said, the cover image for the first issue is really really nice, don’t you think?

    I tried to access some of these Papers but they are behind a toll access barrier.

    I ordered a hard-copy subscription, so I guess Vol. 1, No. 1 will soon be in my mailbox. I see there is a major article linking the Great Ordovician Biodiversification Event to frequent, smaller meteorite impacts from the breakup in the asteroid belt of the L-chondrite parent body 470 Ma. Cool. I love to look at Ordovician fossils and have been doing so since high school. One cannot help but wonder what put the nickel into the evolutionary machine at that time. Yay for NATURE GEOSCIENCE.
