Science Monday #2: Why are Things Cute?

Can science explain why we like photos of puppies and babies?


Science Youtuber "Vsauce" (aka Michael) has his latest video up, talking about the scientific basis on why we go "awwwwww!" when we see a picture of a cute puppy, kitten or other soft and round object.

While I enjoy the scientific explanation, of course, it's also a chance to see some photos of cute babies, puppies and kittens.

If you want more cuteness, feel free to watch puppies live on YouTube.
