About 80beats80beats is DISCOVER's news aggregator, weaving together the choicest tidbits from the best articles on the day's most compelling topics.

The posts are journalistic mashups, with quoted text in blue and the source of the quoted material identified in brackets—with a link, of course.

80beats is written primarily by Eliza Strickland, who darts through each day's science news faster than the ruby-throated hummingbird that beats its wings 80 times per second.
