Ahoy Sci Sluggers!
To celebrate our upcoming issue we are doing a countdown of cool science facts. The new issue will be released on Wednesday, May 4, so keep an eye out for them around UCSC.
Starting off the countdown is a fact about the bones that make up your body. A fully grown adult body has around 206 bones. Babies, on the other hand, are born with about 300 bones. So, what happens to over 90 bones after 20 – 25 years? Over time bones tend to fuse together, causing cartilage to slowly harden and change!
