An Award...

How exciting!  The Science Mommy has just received an award from Be Our Best...
This is a first for The Science Mommy and I am very thankful and appreciate the recognition.  There are, of course, a couple of rules in order to accept this award...
#1 - 4 Guilty Pleasures... this isn't my personal blog, it feels a bit odd to share guilty pleasures.  So, I thought I would take a little liberty in my interpretation of the rules. {After all rules are more like guidelines aren't they?}
#1 - 4 Fun Science Facts...
Yes, this feels more appropriate for the Science Mommy!

1 - In 1822, geologist William Buckland discovered some really big teeth in England.  He didn't have a name yet for his discovery, but they were the first artifacts of dinosaurs.

2 - In 1674 Anton Van Leeuwenhoek discovered microorganisms in a drop of water.

3 - In 1666 Isaac Newton came to the conclusion that all objects in the universe, from apples to planets, exert gravitational attraction on each other.

4 - The double-helix structure of DNA was discovered in 1953 by James Watson and Francis Crick.  The length of a single human DNA molecule, when extended, is 1.7 meters.

Thanks for accepting the award and playing along! I love your interpretation of the 'rules' and enjoyed reading your interesting facts.
I've had a busy couple of weeks lately with going back to work (briefly) after 8 years!! Now that's done for now, I can catch up on blogging a little! I'm off to check out the blogs you passed the award on to!
