Hey RO pals!!
There's some seriously cool stuff being discovered everyday, so I thought I would start a new thread where we can post all things science-y!!!
To get us started, here's an amazing story about what could be the world's oldest observatory - and it's in Australia!!!

Wow, great read @Autumn23! And great thread idea. :-D
Something interesting I read about recently was that cytokines, which are produced in the immune response, are thought to be associated with depression. Thus adding to evidence that depression is not just caused by environmental factors, but also biological factors.
For more details

I recently discovered Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell, which provides pretty brilliant summaries of fairly cutting edge science, without shying away from the moral and ethical implications of the new discoveries. They do get a little ahead of themselves sometimes, but it's generally pretty great at satisfying your knowledge fix cravings.

@AscheThis is so awesome - thanks for sharing!
I've been wondering what CRISPR is and the video is super helpful as I'm a visual learner and love animations

@Autumn23 Sounds like you're on your way down the rabbit hole already, hahah. You can embed youtube links by clicking the "insert video" button in the post-reply screen- it's two buttons to the right of the "insert link" button that you presumably used to create the youtube hyperlink. That'll create a popup which asks you for the video URL- paste the URL in and then click "preview". The popup will then update, and give you the ability to insert the video into your post- click "insert", and you're done!
