Wired.com today launched a new network of what it calls “superstar science bloggers.” Says Betsy Mason, former Contra Costa Times science writer and new Wired.com science editor:

The new Wired Science Blogs network will complement our news stories with more insight, opinion and geeky science details brought to you by people who are extremely knowledgeable and deeply embedded in their fields of interest, which range from infectious diseases to physics.

Among the superstars on the Science Blogs masthead: natural science blogger Brian Switek, Southeastern Louisiana University physics professor Rhett Allain, former newspaper reporter and long-time coverer of the CDC Maryn McKenna, geologist Brian Romans, award-winning science writer David Dobbs, How We Decide author Jonah Lehrer, and Australian DNA data-set researcher Daniel MacArthur.
