Are you a bit new to the world of science? Not sure where to start?

I know science can seem pretty intimidating–but don’t worry, I’m here to help! My mission with this blog is to make science as accessible as possible for everyone.

On this page, you will find links to posts throughout my blog that are written with the beginner in mind. At the top, I’ve also included some topics to help familiarize you on what science is and isn’t.

I welcome feedback on this page! Do you think the articles included here are actually fundamentals–or do they seem more advanced to you? If anything on this page seems overwhelming or intimidating, please let me know so I can recategorize it.

If there’s an introductory topic you really want me to include here that you can’t find, please let me know too!

Please head over to my contact form, email me at, or leave a comment at the bottom of this page.

What is Science? Updated!

I hope for these posts to serve as a general introduction to what science is, tailored for those of you who have had little exposure. It’s never too late to learn.

Moon Landings

Yes, the moon landings happened. Even if you already believe me, I think you’ll find the evidence that they happened to be interesting. It’s really fascinating how difficult it would have been to fake such a thing with the technology of the 1960s.

Astrology vs. Astronomy Updated!

People confuse these all the time. There’s no shame in it, especially considering that most sciences include the suffix “-logy,” meaning “the study of.” The suffix “-nomy,” on the other hand, means “the naming of.” So, literally translated, “astrology” means “the study of stars” and “astronomy” means “the naming of stars.” That’s…not even remotely what these two terms actually mean. Astrology is a religion in all but name; it’s generally referred to as a psuedoscience (that is, fake science). Astronomy is far more than just the naming of stars. It’s the science of the entire universe, and I have a whole section of this blog dedicated to it.

Common Misconceptions Updated!

If you have some of your science facts confused, you’re definitely not alone. Lots of people, including me, start out misinformed on how things work. This blog exists to help people find the right answers, but these Common Misconception posts will directly address commonly misunderstood science facts.
