On November 30, The Royal Society -- the oldest fellowship of scientists in the world -- celebrated their 350th anniversary. To commemorate the event, they created a project called Science Sees Further, a series of articles and interviews about the current cutting edge of scientific exploration. It's pretty interesting, with lots of eminent scientists pontificating on where their field is right now; for example you can find Frank Drake and Paul Davies talking about extraterrestrial life, and climate scientists discussing greenhouse gases. There are essays on biology, medicine, and lots of other disciplines as well. If you're looking for some diverting reading about science, this is an excellent place to start.
