Science of Starcraft

I’ll freely admit than I’m something of a video game culture nut, as well as being a shameless science geek. So when I discover something that makes a reasonably good effort to combine the two, I find it rather exciting!

A fairly new blog, written by Ryan Anderson of Martian Chronicles fame, The Science of Starcraft is perhaps the most fascinating blog I’ve stumbled across recently, exploring the game Starcraft and taking a closer look to see if there’s any kind of scientific truth behind it. Everything from precisely what a gauss rifle is and how it works, to ways in which the terrifying Zerg race is similar to both tardigrades and slime mould are covered eloquently and informatively.

All in all, it makes for quite a fascinating read. And you don’t even need to construct any additional pylons…
