Science Resources at Reddit

Ask Science – Cowdsourced, so you do see some conjecture and speculation, but this subreddit also attracts a lot of people who know what they’re talking about. When several of them develop a consensus on an answer, the discussion is usually on the right track toward a good answer.

Explain Like I’m Five – this one does a great job of tackling very complex topics and breaking them down in a way that is comprehensible to people who don’t specialize in that topic.

http://www.reddit.com/r/explainlikeimfive

And some additional general purpose subreddits with interesting discussions. You can pick up a little knowledge here and there, get familiar with the jargon and their meanings, and it gives you enough understanding to dig deeper if you find something particularly interesting.
