As anyone who participates in research knows, it is very very easy to start with a brilliant idea and end up with a blank page. While the blog over the past two years hasn’t quite been blank, it also hasn’t exactly amounted to a complete project.
And, as anyone who participates in research knows, it is very very easy to say “I can do that!” without really thinking about what that entails. While I had a good sense of what reinvigorating the Breakthrough blog would require, it has still managed to evade my best intentions thus far.

The Breakthrough blog is back and we want to hear from you! If you know of STEM events on campus you’d like featured, comment below or send us an email at theBreakthroughblog[at]gmail.com. If your best friend (or you!) is doing really cool research you think more people should know about, comment below or send us an email at theBreakthroughblog[at]gmail.com. If you went and saw The Martian in theaters or Copenhagen in Central Square or literally anything cool and science-y that you want to tell us about, comment below or… you got it!
