Those of you in around Philadelphia (South Jersey, Delaware, etc.): there’s a new science store in Manayunk that you have to support. Yes, “have to,” I’m sorry, there’s just no arguing the point. Today is the grand opening of Spectrum Scientifics, located at 4403 Main St. The store is the brainchild of my good friend and (and dedicated skeptic) Matt, and I’m sure it’s going to be super. Matt is smart, with a background in physics and plenty of experience working for companies like Edmund Scientific, so he knows his stuff. Go there for your telescopes, microscopes, toys, and other cool science stuff. Happy grand opening, Matt!
