A big thumbs up to the Guardian

The Guardian has just announced a new feature. Four new columnists will be writing a weekly column (one per week, so each will have a monthly column) about science.

The starting line up:

Simon Singh - particle physicist, best selling author, TV producer, and currently being sued for libel by the British Chiropractic Association.

Chris French - Professor of Psychology at Goldsmiths University of London, Co-ordinator of something called the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit, and co-editor of The Skeptic.

Andy Miah - professor of ethics and emerging technologies at University of West Scotland.

PZ Myers
- professor of biology at University of Minnesota, Morris, outspoken atheist, and of course is famous (infamous?) for his blog, Pharyngula, which does an excellent job covering a wide range of topics related to biology, evolution, creationism, religion, and atheism. (Those last two get him all kinds of new friends)

Sounds like a hell of a line up to me. Good job Guardian.
