Happy Birthday to Us!

ScienceNOW first appeared 5 years ago today. Since then, we've posted more than 5000 stories about new findings, science policy, and events from the world of research. Here we present a small sample of some of our favorites: significant and entertaining pieces from Science staff and our network of contributors all over the world. Take a look back at the first report about cloned sheep, the acoustics of Civil War battles, bizarre animal mating habits, and lots more.

Enjoy, and come back often for the latest news. If you have ideas about how to improve the site, drop us a line at science-now@aaas.org.
