A Warm Welcome to our New Writers! (Synopsis)

“Men at some time are masters of their fates:
The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars,
But in ourselves...” -
William Shakespeare

It isn't every day that I pause to make an announcement, but it also isn't every day that I have news quite like this!

Thanks to the new Starts With A Bang digs over at Medium, I finally have the resources to bring on a team of some of the best scientists who write about physics/astronomy/astrophysics/gravitation to contribute, and I'm pleased to announce the arrival of six new regular writers on Starts With A Bang!

Go meet the crew here, and then come back and say hello and welcome to them all!

What an awesome set of people to join you on this blog! We're lucky to be getting such high quality content...

That being said, it's already tough to keep up with everything you are writing right now! Adding 6 more people is going to make things even tougher to keep up with!

That's quite a lineup. I've been following Brian Koberlein and Sabine Hossenfelder for quite a while, and I look forward to getting to know the work of these other folks.
