We've passed two milestones recently. Firstly, we're actually up to 251.4K members now - and we wanted to thank you, our members! Secondly, we're the 9th largest Community on Google+! That's all thanks to you!
We appreciate your fascinating science posts, your spirited debate and your generous feedback to our fellow members who ask for science input. We'd like to highlight some of our Curator's Choice posts. Further celebrations will follow!
