The Huffington Post Launches Yet Another Section – Science

For those of you waiting impatiently for The Huffington Post to tackle science, wait no longer.

In her somewhat lengthy announcement to readers, Arianna Huffington summarizes the coverage of HuffPost Science, which is edited by David Freeman, the former managing editor of the CBSNews.com health section:

From the farthest reaches of space to the tiniest cells inside our bodies, HuffPost Science will report on the world’s greatest mysteries, most cutting-edge discoveries, and most thought-provoking ideas.

Apparently, science is one of her things. She reminisces about how she first fell for the underrappreciated discipline:

Science is a subject that has fascinated me for years. I remember, in the mid-70s, being taken by Bernard Levin to meet Arthur Koestler at his flat in London. I had just read his book, The Act of Creation, on the inspirations that propelled great scientists. Koestler, who described scientists as Peeping Toms at the keyhole of eternity, talked about scientific equations with the ease most of us discuss what we had for dinner (or, if you are a HuffPost regular, the Iowa results).

Don’t fret though if your relationship with science doesn’t run as deep. The section aims to look at how science impacts sports, religion, technology, health – and well, other Huffington Post channels.
