Welcome to THE ‘SCOPE!
This is the place where pop culture is put under the microscope and scrutinized through the eyes of scientists.

Our mission is to prove to you that science can be found wherever you look, and it makes the world so much more interesting. When you see Miley Cyrus swinging from a wrecking ball, we are wondering if we can calculate the number of swings it would take for her to knock the wall down.

When you see Luis Suarez munching on other soccer players, we are wondering about the types of bacteria that might infect the bite wound.

When we see Pat Sajak tweet something insane about climate change, we are wondering about his temperature and want to set the record straight.

Nothing out there can escape THE ‘SCOPE.
Got something you want to see under THE ‘SCOPE? Send it to us for consideration.

THE ‘SCOPE is looking for writers! Can you break down the science behind the people and events currently capturing everyone’s attention? Contact us with a brief bio, writing samples, and article idea. We will be in touch if we’re interested.

Get ready to be blinded by science!
