The aim of /r/Physics is to build a subreddit frequented by physicists, scientists, and those with a passion for physics. Papers from physics journals (free or otherwise) are encouraged. Posts should be pertinent, meme-free, and generate a discussion about physics. Please report trolls and intentionally misleading comments.

A subreddit to draw simple physics questions away from /r/physics. No real rules; ask away.

If your basic physics question isn't answered in a day, you can post it to /r/physics if you mention that you didn't get an answer on /r/AskPhysics (unless it's a homework-related physics question).

This is a subreddit based around sharing awesome, usually minimal and single-purpose websites and webtools.

Also, note to self: If this subreddit gets huge, awesome, if it does not, I will simply use it to back up my bookmarks! << top kek

Sure, I'm dissapointed you guys removed my post, I was keen to hear what people on the Internet thought of it. But it mainly saddens me to see beauty constrained by such tyranny

/r/EverythingScience is the sister subreddit to /r/science. With a broader rule set that /r/science, it is the place for high quality scientific content that doesn't necessarily reference a peer-reviewed paper from the last 6 months.
