If you're a science-news junkie, odds are that you already know about ScienceDaily and check in frequently. For the rest of us, visiting the site is eye-opening, inspiring proof of the new things scientists discover every day. Its home page is crammed with links to stories on health, ecology, energy, wildlife, computers and other topics, most of which are reasonably approachable, even to laypeople. And for every alarming item on climate change, there seems to be at least one on an impending medical breakthrough or other example of science making life better.
