Informative, But Too Short

The title is catchy, and the information is interesting and well presented, but it's a pain in the neck to bother downloading something like this and have it last only a minute. How about 600 Second Science?. Too long? How about Three Minute Science?

Fact of the day

I find this quite interesting and informative. It may be only 60 seconds (The episodes themselves are actually more than a minute) but it makes it even more fun like a fact of the day.


This is amazing, seriously in one 60-second lesson i learned more than a full hour of class! AMAZING what you can learn in 60 is truly worth it, and seriously who dosn't have 60 seconds.
