Sorry, I don’t have a Sciency Words post for you this week. I was researching a thing, but it turned out that I’d bit off more than I could chew. I really don’t think I should do a blog post on a topic when I understand that topic so poorly.
If you really had your heart set on learning some scientific terminology today, please check out this video from SciShow on some of the “ridiculous” names scientists have given to animal species. Though personally, I’m not sure what they mean by ridiculous. Han solo sounds like a perfectly sensible genus/species name to me.
