Real Clever Science

My name is Ari Einbinder. This is the journal of my travels into the realm of science and science education.
I've worked at science museums in NY (NYSCI and AMNH) and across Europe. Currently I'm studying "museology" (aka museum studies) at UW in Seattle, WA. I'm also one of Tumblr's Science Section editors.

I discuss anything that fascinates me, but popular topics include evolution, transhumanism (e.g BCI), futurism, psychology, quantum computing, climate change, sustainability, genetic engineering and occasionally politics - to name a few.

Enjoy!

Anonymous asked: I just read an article on "pollution eating paint" and thought you might be interested, since you're into Earth and all that. I don't know how I'm going to link it to you but you can probably just search "smog-eating paint" or "boysen KNOxOUT" and you'll be able to find it!

Very cool stuff!

I had actually heard about this awhile ago, but never heard what came of it. Really exciting to hear that it’s getting used. And really amazing potential. (I’m gonna have to look into this more!) Good link here, btw.

Thanks! (And why anon?)

Highlight:

"Jess Zimmerman of Grist…: ‘Eleven square feet of paint-covered surface can absorb as much pollution as a full-grown tree, and these murals are close to 11 THOUSAND square feet. If we could get this stuff into the hands of street artists and taggers, it would be like having an army of energetic teenagers planting trees all over the city all day, every day.’”
