Science Forum - Life, the Universe and Everything

Is there a) any intention to create and b) any appetite for a Science based Forum? Where we can talk about the stories of the week and anything else that takes our fancy.

I've always found that the debates/conversations are generally of a really high level without descending into the sort of madness that can effect other articles. There's also much less chance of fanboyism (aside from the obligatory Edison vs Tesla of course).

Anyone have any thoughts?

Edit - This piece about super fast travelling planets is the sort of thing I was thinking about? For example I would assume that there is no chance of having an atmosphere on an object travelling that fast, or is there?
