The softer side of science

If you have a soft spot for the science of bubbles, liquid crystals and other squishy materials you might have heard of Soft Matter! If you have not, this branch of physics is a fascinating interdisciplinary topic studying various kinds of materials from gels to biological systems. They all share in common the fact that they are soft, which means they are not exactly solid nor liquid. For instance if you poke a bit of foam, it will resist like a solid at short times but it will flow at longer times. 

We would like to popularize this field of science by launching a spin-off website of, that posts daily summaries of research papers in astrophysics. To start the adventure of Softbites, we are looking for people doing research in soft matter who would be willing to write about it and people who would like to be involved in the reviewing process of these posts.

Softly yours!
