Last year The Ubyssey decided to dive into the world of science and technology. Here’s our mandatory, self-congratulatory post about the coolest things we’ve done in the last 375 days (yes, we missed our own birthday).
Here’s a really, really quick list: erections, weed, opioids, toilet paper, robots, stupid Americans, floating, giant wood buildings, NASA, more NASA and a little bit of Santa.
If you haven’t been following Ubyssey Science since the beginning, here’s what you should read to catch up. And start following us already (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat).
