Check out this amazing video that zooms into the center of the Milky Way. "The final views show the motion of a newly-discovered gas cloud that is falling rapidly towards the central black hole."

Free Gifts with Your Holiday Shopping

Today, I'd like to give our fans a little preview of an offer you'll see in our new catalog coming out this week. We're offering a free set of compact binoculars (http://www.scientificsonline.com/5-x-30-compact-binocular.html) with any order over $80.

And I'd like to re-introduce our great free telescope offer: get a free telescope (http://www.scientificsonline.com/land-and-sky-50-telescope.html) with any purchase over $100.

Here's how to take advantage:

1) Shop at Edmund Scientifics and add items to your shopping cart.
2) If you have more than $80, but less than $100, add the binoculars to your cart, then use coupon code BIN12b to get the appropriate discount.
3) If you have $100 or more, you can choose either item. Follow #2 for the binoculars. If you'd like the telescope, add it to your cart and use coupon code SCOPEFBK to get your discount.

Happy shopping!

We’ve received a ton of negative feedback lately on our Girls and Boys Novelty Kits categories, through emails, blog posts, tweets — you name it. Today, I’d like to announce a change to our site — one that better reflects our beliefs: we have officially removed the Girls and Boys Novelty Kits categories from our site and replaced them with a single Novelty Science Kits category. Click through to our blog post for more detail.

Thank you for your feedback!
