Eureka! Science News: Google News for Science

Posted by briony

Eureka! Science News logoA Canadian scientist has recently launched a news aggregator for basic science. A news aggregator is a service that automatically collects headlines and blurbs from other sites, without creating any original content – like Google News, AOL News, and Yahoo News. Eureka! Science News provides science news in several categories, including astronomy!

So far, I’m pretty impressed with the site, especially the Astronomy/Space section, which provides news as well as recent awesome images!

I’m really happy to see this site come online, especially because the Sci/Tech section of Google News (I <3 Google!) is notoriously devoid of basic science stories.
