SciKu, PopSci.com's very own artform, teaches us that all we really need in life (or science news) is seventeen simple syllables.
Check out our latest offering from Popular Science editor Bjorn Carey, and leave your own indelible SciKu mark on PopSci.com, as a comment, below.
We bet that SciKu, the delicate science poetry that belongs to everyone, will last and last. As did, apparently, a 300-million-year-old brain found inside a rock in northeast Kansas:
Fish brain turned to stone
It's not just for bone
Nicole Dyer is back, masterfully merging the ever-popular "Science Confirms the Obvious" series with her favorite new artform, SciKu (an instant cult classic).
Check out her latest brainchild (after the jump), and add your own 17 syllable sciku as a comment; it will live on forever on PopSci.com.
Here at Popular Science, innovation is the name of the game. Now, our Features Editor has pushed the envelope on the blog's ubiquitous form by invoking a great form of poetry known for its compact use of language and emotive imagery. We bring you Nicole Dyer. We bring you SciKu.
