It's a boy! It's a girl! It's...Not Exactly Rocket Science! Yes, the latest addition to our happy ScienceBlogs family is here, and we couldn't be more excited (well, unless someone sent balloons...)

Not Exactly Rocket Science is the blog of Ed Yong, a freelance science writer living across the pond. He writes solely from primary research papers in a pointedly jargon-free fashion. In its pre-ScienceBlogs incarnation, Not Exactly Rocket Science featured stories covering news in animal behavior, evolution, psychology, the environment and other topics; since joining us, Ed seems to be favoring the critters, like the cute but invasive brown rat below:
He promises a similarly diverse smattering of topics for the future. We look forward to seeing what he brings us!
