The #Science Shorty Award

As New York Times writer Mary Ann Giordano recently said, “to put it in 140 characters or less, social media and science found each other in 2012.” Here’s to the visionaries, proving the facts of the universe like the earth revolving around the sun, the process of evolution, and if the sky is really falling. Through tweets, Facebook posts, videos, blogs, and Instagram photos, these people have gained fame through their scientific discoveries. Nominate your favorite for #Science.
