Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych220,498It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area).Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show.They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good.Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week.As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00167G+

Day 21

Adrift

I lay there in space, drifting. The hull is ruptured. My body broken. Awaiting the final blast.

SciFi August Continues!

Last year's SciFi August was great fun, and quite a few of you participated, so it had to happen again. For this month of August I will be exploring outer space, inner space, hyper space and other SciFi spaces and places on my appropriately named Galaxy S5. I would very much like it if you joined in on the fun.

Tag any of your creative work that you created during August with the tag:

#SciFiAugust.

These can be in the forms of imagery, painting, story, poetry, sculpture, you name it. Just keep it constrained to science fiction and to August.

Science Posts : are often about new discoveries or about science and related technology. I post a lot within this area. I have often found that while my posts have engagement, it gets hard to explain why the commenter has to stick to the science.

Why can't I talk about my experience : Of course you can, but one has to preface it by saying it is my experience, or its not something backed by research. And be ready to be called on it. Very often commenters will continue to talk about their experiences as if that 'proves' something. Experiences do not make science. It is an experience. What you observe may not be what another person observes. Or it may not be repeatable. (See the Scientific method here http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/scientific_method )

Science Posts : are often about new discoveries or about science and related technology. I post a lot within this area. I have often found that while my posts have engagement, it gets hard to explain why the commenter has to stick to the science.

Why can't I talk about my experience : Of course you can, but one has to preface it by saying it is my experience, or its not something backed by research. And be ready to be called on it. Very often commenters will continue to talk about their experiences as if that 'proves' something. Experiences do not make science. It is an experience. What you observe may not be what another person observes. Or it may not be repeatable. (See the Scientific method here http://en.citizendium.org/wiki/scientific_method )

How to make your point scientifically : Science posts may be wrong. That is the nature of science. Sometimes the science may be based on hypothesis which may have counterpoints, but these are continuously tested and refined. Theories are based on observations, so they have a body of work behind them. These are not 'guesses.' Be respectful to the original poster, since often science posts have a lot of work and research which has gone into it. Make your point with research from reputable sites and link back to the research. If you are not sure about it's veracity, ask an expert (There are many on Google Plus).

Does a study make it true : This one is fraught with issues. Often studies may not have a large enough sample size. Or the conclusions one may draw from a study may not be correct. Most scientists are extremely wary of making assertions, even in their own field. They know that there are a lot of variables which need to be taken into account. Science begins with skepticism. Every study needs to be evaluated.

Making your point : Oftentimes, you can make your point with just one comment on a post. Sometimes you make need to make a followup comment. Don't keep repeating your point, making the same assertion again and again. Talking over people does not make you right. It only makes them lose respect for what you are trying to say. Calling someone names is the lowest form of engagement. Do not let it sink to that level.

'Converting' someone : Don't comment to 'convert' someone to your point of view. Science is not about who talks louder or says it more often or cites more studies. Its about relevance, facts, study and repetition. (See my earlier post here How to do science : https://plus.google.com/110884604033336753419/posts/VJrxUt6gUmi )

Science doesn't play favorites : Mentioning Einstein does not make you right. Any scientist would tell you that there are things they do not know. The journey in science is the finding out. One has to live with things which are still not known, and scientists are the best at this way of being.

Join in the journey of finding out, rather than knowing : Science is fascinating. It is incredible. It really is. There is so much I learn just by reading and writing (researching) about how things work, its really something everyone should indulge in. It's brain food. Knowing something is the end of asking. Revel in the journey, not the end.

How to Science : Recently, I have been trolled pinged by a number of people who have asked me to talk about perpetual motion machines, thunderbolt universes, how magnetism affects mood, niburu or somesuch and a lot of other such stuff. One chap even 'debunked' the second law of thermodynamics based on a youtube video.... (keep your baloney detection kit ready).

Why science is important : Science is a method. Yes, we make mistakes, make assumptions, make hypothesis, which when supported by observations are elevated to theories.... and here is the main thing, we have to have observations that are repeatable, free of bias and need to be analyzed. This is an iterative process and involves external checks and balances, data recording and rigor. The first such process recorded (from Wikipedia) In the 7th century BCE, Daniel, a Jewish captive of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar,... more »

Why science is important : Science is a method.

This is an iterative process and involves external checks and balances, data recording and rigor. The first such process recorded (from Wikipedia) In the 7th century BCE, Daniel, a Jewish captive of the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar, conducted a scientific experiment complete with a hypothesis, a control group, a treatment group, and a conclusion.

Is there a way to find verifiable information : Sure, but it still needs to have rigor. A youtube reference is not a good benchmark. Most news sites are also not good indicators. Reputed science sites, reference papers and peer reviewed publications are good places to look. Even then not all of them are the best quality.

Why shouldn't I believe in flying chariots? The Nazca lines prove that chariots can fly : You are free to believe whatever you want. But remember, it is not something anyone will take seriously since your claim is based on belief, not proof or a method which involves rigor, repeatability and removal of bias.

Who should I ask? : Ask people who are experts in their field. There are quality scientists, chemists, biologists, physicists here on G+.... reach out and ask them. There are also sources like askamathematician where you can post your queries. They really do respond.

Calling All Geeks: Can I borrow five bucks? =)
TLDR: http://bit.ly/btckiva .

First off I want to apologize if this comes across as being spammy. I don't generally post things here that are self promotional but in this case I hope you'll all forgive me!

As some of you know, I quit my full time gig over a year ago to start my own business; a worker-owned tech support cooperative based in Somerville, MA called +Boston TechCollective. It's been a hell of a ride and I love not only what I do but my co-owners are some of the best people I've ever worked with!

We've grown considerably in a little over a year and at this point we could really use two people manning the shop and two people doing on-site/remote support. There are only three of us though! As you might imagine, it's stretching us very thin. We've got too much work but note... more »

As some of you know, I quit my full time gig over a year ago to start my own business; a worker-owned tech support cooperative based in Somerville, MA called +Boston TechCollective. It's been a hell of a ride and I love not only what I do but my co-owners are some of the best people I've ever worked with!

We've grown considerably in a little over a year and at this point we could really use two people manning the shop and two people doing on-site/remote support. There are only three of us though! As you might imagine, it's stretching us very thin. We've got too much work but not enough revenue to justify hiring a part time person to lighten the load.

That's where Kiva comes in. It's a social lending site that allows people and organizations to get loans of up to $5000. Anyone who wants to support a project will eventually get their money back once the loan is repaid.

For us this relatively small amount of money will mean we can hire a part timer for our shop. That will mean that my co-owner +Yochai Gal will be freed up to do more on-site work (my primary job) which will generate more revenue. In the shop it would mean that +Matt Gabrenya would get some breathing room as well. Eventually we hope to make this part timer a member of our coop which would obviously be good for them as well!

In short it would give us the small boost we need to really get ourselves established!

So What Do You Want From Me?

All I ask is that if you can lend us even five bucks it would be wonderful. I know that times are tough so even if you can't lend, a reshare would be fantastic too!

Here is the link: http://bit.ly/btckiva

Thanks in advance to all of you. From the amazing crew that participates in my #gqotd  to the writers and assorted folks who follow my #gsotd  posts to the friends I've made via Hangouts I feel grateful to you all regardless!___

64 Percent of Women Scientists Say They've Been Sexually Harassed Doing Field Work

"Most women working in the sciences face sexual assault and harassment while conducting field work, according to a study released Wednesday that is the first to investigate the subject.

The report surveyed 516 women (and 142 men) working in various scientific fields, including archeology, anthropology, and biology. Sixty-four percent of the women said they had been sexually harassed while working at field sites, and one out of five said they had been victims of sexual assault. The study found that the harassers and assailants were usually supervisors. Ninety percent of the women who were harassed were young undergraduates, post-graduates, or post-doctoral students.

via +SciFi Author: Lacerant Plainer .... if you like the art, do buy some. +Mara Mascaro makes some wonderful art. And plus it's wolverine!

Mara's art for sale

So. I have an appointment for a so-called ENS (Empty - Nose Syndrome) specialist somewhere in Germany at the beginning of Semptember, and it's gonna cost me 650ish euros (for medical exams) + Idontknowhowmuch for trip&hotel. Probably around 1000 euros.

I don't have that much handy at the moment (I have so many damn medical expenses...), and I was doubtful whether to  go or not. I talked with +Di Cleverly and she suggested me to make some drawings of Gplus users and sell them.
So... I thought: It's been awhile since I did some art, and it would probably do me good (it would help me not being obsessed with my nose issues all the time).
What if someone wants to buy some art from me and donate for my exams? Would anyone want to buy a chibi portrait of themselves for their profile pictures?

The formula could be something like this:

- €10 A quick Post-it mini drawing (only digital) NEW;

- €20 for a quick pen sketch (I can send you the original drawing, if you want - if you pay S&H);
- €50 for a more detailed black/white drawing (same as before);
- €85 for a pencil/marker drawing (original sent if you want...blah blah blah)

You can pay directly on my Paypal account: phiria@fastwebnet.it specifying what kind of drawing you'd like, and linking your g+ page (and pictures).
Thank you very much for everything :)

These are my art albums, if you want to take a look:

From +Jonah Miller .... how planets form.

How Planets Form

Many months ago, +Richard Green  posted an article  that described how life on a toroidal planet like the one shown in figure 2 would work. (You can find the post here: https://plus.google.com/101584889282878921052/posts/3g1HbzqGNok) The discussion in the comments eventually led to speculation as to whether or not it’s possible for such a toroidal structure to actually form. That discussion is what inspired this post. Today, I’ll tell you about the nebular hypothesis [1], astrophysicists’ current best theory about how planets form. (Fun historical fact: One of the first people to propose the nebular hypothesis was philosopher Immanuel Kant.)

(Those who wish to view this post in blog form can find it here: http://www.thephysicsmill.com/2014/06/01/planets-form/)

In The Beginning, Dust

Our solar system probably started as a huge cloud of gas and dust, like a nebula (hence the name “nebular hypothesis”) [2]. The particles of dust and wisps of gas gravitationally attracted each other, and other time, the denser clouds of matter collapsed into themselves. As the density of each cloud increased, so did its temperature. Eventually it became so dense and so hot that it became what we call a _protostar_—a young, vigorous, and confused star---like the one shown in figure 3.

But not all of the gas and dust had become part of the protostar yet. As the protostar began to age, it began to attract and eat the remainder of the gas. Over time, as the remaining gas fell into the star, it formed a disk, as shown below. Near where the disk touched the star, the compression of its gas superheated it, generating jets of energy pointing out from the star. (For experts: The reason the gas formed a disk is because it had to jet its angular momentum before it could fall in.)

It's All In The Disk

Let’s talk about the disk some. For reasons that will soon become clear, these disks are called protoplanetary disks [4]. Not everything in the disk orbited around the star at the same speed. As dust and gas particles whizzed past each other, sometimes they collided…and sometimes they stuck to each other, forming bigger particles.

Over millions of years and trillions of sticky collisions, these dust particles grew to several kilometers in diameter, forming small objects that we call planetesimals [5]. At this size, these planetesimals had a gravitational pull strong enough to attract many dust particles, allowing them to grow even faster. Very likely, planetesimals also collided with each other to form even larger objects. Eventually, these bodies were large enough to be called planets. Figure 3 shows a protostar surrounded by a protoplanetary disk.

This description tells us that toroidal planets cannot form. Planetesimals grow in size from collisions with dust and with each other. It seems very unlikely that they would form a shape other than “roughly spherical.”

The End of the Disk

After enough time passed and the protostar had feasted sufficiently, it would begin to emit a blast of light and subatomic particles called the solar wind [6]. This pressure blew away all remaining gas and dust in the disk that hadn’t already coalesced into large objects—leaving behind the collection of planets we know as the solar system.

Evidence

Obviously, we can’t look back in time to see how our own solar system formed. But we can look out into space to try and find solar systems that are in the process of forming. Protostars are easy to capture on film because the jets that they fire have a characteristic shape. We call them Herbig-Haro objects [7], and they produce some staggeringly beautiful images. See the photos in figure 4.

We can also observe the protoplanetary disks that are feeding the protostar. At first, they were hard to spot and we had to use some fancy image enhancement techniques to see them, as in figure 5. The top row shows the unenhanced images and the bottom row shows the enhanced images.

However, the Hubble got an upgrade, and we’ve been looking a while. We now have some much better images. Look at figure 6. See those little tadpole-like objects? Those are protoplanetary disks.

Hubble has now captured more than 150 images of protostars and their jets and disks. For your viewing pleasure, you can find a few more in figure 7.

Sadly, we’re far too distant to see if the disks contain planetesimals.

Issues

I want to emphasize that the nebular hypothesis of planet formation is currently still a hypothesis. It’s the best description we have for how planets formed in our solar system, but it still has some important issues that need to be worked out.

For example, we still don’t know how gas giants like Jupiter form. The planetesimal description relies on the planetesimals being made of rock, so this only describes the formation of terrestrial planets like Earth and Mars. Additionally, the nebular hypothesis predicts that planets should emerge from the disk in very erratic orbits. It’s not clear how they form their current elliptical orbits, which are very regular.

Only time will tell, I suppose, if the nebular hypothesis is correct.

2. Black holes are surrounded by disks very similar to protoplanetary disks, called accretion disks. I wrote an article about these a while back: http://www.thephysicsmill.com/2013/11/09/accretion-disk/

3. About a year ago, astronomers snapped an image of what they think is a gas giant forming in an alien protoplanetary disk. I don’t know what this means for the nebular hypothesis, but it’s interesting. Here’s an article on this topic: http://www.wunderground.com/news/alien-planet-forming-20130228

Nothing Is More Fun than a Hypercube of Monkeys To reduce symmetries of a tesseract put a monkey at the center of each cube - how is that for a scientific recipe? Well you do end up cooking a 3D-printed sculpture of a 4D object. But jokes aside - math groups and symmetries are related and turns out a so called Quaternion Group was never visualized as a symmetric object. This is because the object should be 4-dimensional. But even those can be visualized as 3D projections and even 3D printed.

People would literally be screaming at one another at scientific meetings.” He added, “Plant scientists in general are incredibly conservative. We all think we want to hear novel ideas, but we don’t, not really.” (http://goo.gl/7OX3tN)

A Science Fiction World : Smithsonian hosts  'The Future is here' : The invite list has some awesome names such as Brian Greene,  Adam Steltzner, Rich Devaul etc. The names are like a who's who of futurists and scientists. But can we do a guessing game? What will they talk about? Where will the conversation go? While one cannot predict what they would bring forth, here is my list of things one would like to hear about....

Transhumanism : But naturally. With people like David Brin around, it would have to include all forms of transhumanism, Cyborgs, remotely controlled beings, robots with artificial DNA etc. See an earlier post here http://goo.gl/LU23b3

Living Quarters : Quite literally living buildings. Self-sustaining and self-powered. I would definitely talk about these. See earlier posts http://goo.gl/tMRLGj and http://goo.gl/KfO5qn

Living Quarters : Quite literally living buildings. Self-sustaining and self-powered. I would definitely talk about these. See earlier posts http://goo.gl/tMRLGj and http://goo.gl/KfO5qn

Economical way to go into space : With a much lower carbon footprint. There are already a lot of technologies in the works, and I posted a story on my blog based on some of the science which exists - http://goo.gl/u2ekqZ (I would also include dynamic soaring, fusion power, the railgun cum scramjet, but the laser based story is something which I think has the best potential).

Power : Reduce cost of power through fusion (http://goo.gl/1DW0bD), Space based solar power (http://goo.gl/5yi0Gr), Luna ring (http://goo.gl/a71BCC), Biomimicry (http://goo.gl/lXWSnh) and using microbes (http://goo.gl/I871zI). Alternate energy post here http://goo.gl/vBUr5a.

Redefining transportation : Virus powered cars (http://goo.gl/rpz3VE), The hyperloop perhaps (http://goo.gl/bm6Nts). ETT is still waiting for us (http://goo.gl/im2KAu) and so much more!

Nanobots and Nanotechnology : Nanobot post here (http://goo.gl/4VT0bG) and Nanomachine mimics nature's protien factory (http://goo.gl/JdzoSN). More recently a post on Material science, nanotechnology and biology meet here (http://goo.gl/XNU2ui).

There are so many new areas I have missed out like 3D printing, self-assembling robots and nanobots, Artifical DNA, Stem cell research, work on graphene. What is your guess??

For more details look at this post shared by +Thomas Dolby  here http://goo.gl/KUFNts

Originally tagged via +Avinash Jaisinghani..... on the Smithsonian event.

Speaker list includes: +David Brin, +Sara Seager, +Richard DeVaul and Brian Greene.

Comes highly recommended....

Hey, not to be pulling another plug here (coughs), but did you know that if you have Amazon Prime you can read CHIMERAS for free through the Kindle Landing Library ? So, what are you waiting for? Click!! :-)

What people are saying :

"Classic hard-boiled noir crime thriller sculpted by lovely prose and set in the present, this is a surprisingly terrific read." -- Cole Alpaugh, author of The Bear in a Muddy Tutu and The Spy's Little Zonbi

"I was intrigued by the opening, and the questions I had kept me intrigued as the investigation unfolded. E. E. Giorgi writes some truly gorgeous prose, and I felt like I was experiencing everything right along with Track." -- Autumn Kalquist, author of The Legacy Code

"Devilish sense of humor +  scientist = Seriously talented writer who can paint vivid emotions and draw you into surprising perspectives as easily as a summer breeze. Driven by activated, hypersensitive predator genes long silent over our evolution, science meets thriller/mystery in Chimeras through "Track", a homicide detective, part wild animal, part charged up man-a chimera."  - Alex Alaniz, author of A Temporal Opera

"This book is like a Michael Crichton written with the witty sarcasm of the classic detective noir." -- C., Amazon review

"Beautifully written with complex characters and an intriguing plot, the dialogue is spot on and the pacing perfect for the genre." -- Rowan Greene, Amazon review

"The debut novel from E.E. Giorgi, Chimeras is a delightful combination of hot prose and cool science. I was hooked on the first sentence of:

It was one of those hot summer afternoons, with air made of cobwebs and a glare as sharp as pencils .

Wonderful stuff, that, and the book continues to delight with prose that streams out like Chandler." -- Steven Halter, Amazon review

+NovoPulp: The Speculative Fiction Anthology
Our First Anthology Published Exclusively by G+ Authors and Artists

NovoPulp was conceived by +Ted Ewen in 2012. He saw the individual efforts of struggling writers putting their work out there and thought a volume of work by G+ authors and artists might be worth pursuing. Two years later we have published our first book and plan to publish one anthology a year of the very best speculative fiction G+ can provide.

http://www.NovoPulp.com/store

In the 2013/2014 anthology we have:

Stories from:
+Lacerant Plainer, +Micha Fire +Charles Barouch +H David Blalock +Laston Kirkland, +James Calbraith, +M Stange, +David Grigg, +Michael Matula, +Rich Larson, and myself.

Afterword by:
+Ted Ewen and myself.

Do take a look, it's science fiction of course. Though I could have carried it further, it's sometimes better to leave things to the readers imagination.

The dawn broke over the ridge as he adjusted his eye-band and smiled to himself, it was a clear day. He nearly broke into song looking at the colors which painted the sky orange. The haze seemed to shimmer as the Sun swept away the night and only the cloudless sky remained.

The day was like any other, Khanun smiled to himself, it was better than any other day. But no one knew why... Khanun did.

The dawn broke over the ridge as he adjusted his eye-band and smiled to himself, it was a clear day. He nearly broke into song looking at the colors which painted the sky orange. The haze seemed to shimmer as the Sun swept away the night and only the cloudless sky remained.

Khanun was a outlander. With his new toy, he would be able to craft whatever he liked this day. It  would be amazing. He was sure. He bent to the task as he assembled the device which he had dreamt up. It was a self-creating structure, and he just had to build the basic building block. He chose a Lego shape... basic;  just two interlocking parts which repeated itself endlessly. The fractal shape grew... from just a tiny dot, it self-assembled over and over. In a few hours it was complete.

The giant structure twisted on itself as it resolved. It built it's shapes rapidly now.... too rapid for the eye to discern.  Khanun remembered that this was a self-aware system. He wondered what he would call it. It spun and created a rudder and legs.... it created its master program.... all it required was the coding. Khanun had given it that.

As Khanun watched in the Alien landscape of the planet, the very elements that had made up its red-colored clay molded itself; using the very same coding used by plants and animals, with human ingenuity used to accelerate its creation. It was wonderful. And it stared at Khanun. It's parent.

Khanun touched the ridges between its eyes and petted it. It purred. Khanun decided he would name it "Nøste".

She didn't know it yet, but the teacher, identified only as M.P. in a recent case study her doctors published about her in the journal Neurology, had had a stroke.

Article Extract: One morning, a kindergarten teacher was about to take attendance for her class when she realized she couldn't read the paper in her hands. She tried looking over her lesson plans, but like the attendance sheet, they seemed to be covered in incomprehensible symbols. She didn't know it yet, but the teacher, identified only as M.P. in a recent case study her doctors published about her in the journal Neurology, had had a stroke. The stroke afflicted a very specific part of her brain, leaving the 40-year-old woman with some unusual, but not unprecedented, symptoms—and plenty of functioning outside of that. Her case study is a fascinating look at what the brain, and human ingenuity, are capable of.

It turns out M.P.'s stroke interrupted the connection between the "language zone" of her brain and her visual cortex, her doctors wrote. At the same time, other sensory inputs still connected into her language zone. The results were decidedly weird. She couldn't read, but she could still write and understand spoken English, a symptom called "word blindness." Plus, she still had emotional reactions to seeing words, even though she couldn't recognize them:

Given a word, M.P. will direct her attention to the first letter, which she is unable to recognize. She will then place her finger on the letter and begin to trace each letter of the alphabet over it in order until she recognizes that she has traced the letter she is looking at.

+Sean Cowen is a resource you would do well to tie up with... via +Lacerant Plainer.

Putting This Out There To The Universe

Illustration Credit and Copyright by Lynette Cook.

Some of you who know me well, know that I face a lot of lay-offs each year in my industry (manufacturing, NW Ohio). As I'm currently once again laid-off indefinitely, I thought I would put this to the universe and let the world know that I have some mad marketing and social media skills.

As a first-gener here, and with my myriad of pages I created (or manage in the case of Sherlock) like +FRIDAY NIGHT SESSIONS +Helping Others +Plus Awards +PORTFOLIO +I Am Sherlocked +BIBLIOMATIC etc, I have a deep knowledge of this platform, and of everything else. My circles have always grown organically, and I have the pulse of Google+. Yes, I'm selling myself a bit here. But if there are orgs or companies which want to get their feet in the door here - I can help.

My background has been being a Director of Marketing for my previous two employers, and I now find myself in an entirely the entirely unrelated field of purchasing. As a Graduate Coach of Dale Carnegie classes four times over, I am adopting one of Dale's strategies: putting 'it' out there to the universe. What's the worst that can happen? No one hires me. The best? Someone in a position to affect change in their organization likes what they see I have to offer, and hires me. 

That's my philosophy in life, and on this wonderful UI: being myself, putting myself out there, and building and creating things.

I have always been a WYSIWYG kind of guy, and all my longtime friends and fans know that. So, this is my Christmas Appeal. A while back, friends helped me trend #GetSeanAJob  and now I am, once again, seeking your help. I'm not willing to relocate long-term (unless a six-figure job in New York suddenly opens up, then maybe!), but I am absolutely open to short-term gigs, speaking engagements, and helping companies and orgs focus and clearly find their voice on Google+. Contact me - I can help! Happy to connect with you on LinkedIn as well! Though this is entirely the wrong time of the year to post this in all likelihood, you are missing out if you pass me by!

Via +Google Science Fair !

Who is studying Earth's polar ice in Antarctica? We are during Operation IceBridge, an airborne science mission by NASA. IceBridge images Earth's polar ice in unprecedented detail to better understand processes that connect the polar regions with the global climate system. IceBridge utilizes a highly specialized fleet of research aircraft and the most sophisticated suite of innovative science instruments ever assembled to characterize annual changes in thickness of sea ice, glaciers, and ice sheets. In addition, IceBridge collects critical data used to predict the response of earth’s polar ice to climate change and resulting sea-level rise. IceBridge also helps bridge the gap in polar observations between NASA's ICESat satellite missions.

Operation IceBridge is conducting its first field campaign directly from Antarctica this year. Seen here, NASA flight engineer Brian Yates directs the P-3 research aircraft during engine startup on the ramp at McMurdo Station's sea ice airfield before a Nov. 20 survey flight over Victoria Land in Antarctica. To the right in the background is the nearby volcano, Mount Erebus.

Thanks to +Christine Evans posting this, hope +NASA's Earth Observatory +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory +Penny4NASA +Emily Lakdawalla can garner enough support to keep Cassini going!

As is the case with most exploratory spaceflight missions, Cassini, which has been orbiting Saturn since 2004, has entered the point in its voyage where it must pass Senior Review to continue to receive funding. 

All current extended missions, including Cassini, are fully funded through the end of FY14. The worrisome issue, however, is that in FY15, a scheduled budget cut will coincide with Curiosity also needing funding to begin its extended missions on Mars.

“We have two very expensive flagship missions, Cassini and Curiosity,” said NASA’s planetary science director Jim Green. “So, this particular competition we’ll have to do very carefully.”

+The Planetary Society recently outlined the proposed extended mission of Cassini.
http://www.planetary.org/blogs/guest-blogs/van-kane/20131112_Cassini_extended_mission.html

Up until November 2016, Cassini will have stayed well away from Saturn's rings (except during orbit insertion in 2004) because the risk of catastrophic collision with an ice particle or boulder would be too high. With the fuel almost exhausted, though, Cassini's managers want to bring it in close to the rings and Saturn itself. Twenty orbits would carry the spacecraft just outside the rings for close up observations of their structure and mass. (The latter measurements, for example, would help scientists determine how old the rings are.)

Following these orbits, the spacecraft would slip into the gap between the inner most ring and the top of Saturn's atmosphere. From these 22 close-in orbits, the Cassini mission would essentially replicate the measurements that will be made at the same time by the Juno mission to Jupiter: detailed measurements of the interior of Saturn and of its atmosphere. As a bonus, scientists can make more detailed measurements of the rings. And for all of us who vicariously explore the solar system through these missions, think of how beautiful the images would be looking out at the rings and Saturn from just above the clouds.

At the end of the mission, its fuel gone, Cassini would enter and burn up in Saturn's atmosphere, an end that would prevent it from accidentally impacting and contaminating Enceladus or Titan with micro-organisms from Earth.

In a relatively short time, Cassini has been greatly beneficial towards our understanding of Saturn, its moons, and its magnificent ring system. Express your desire to see Cassini complete the final legs of its journey to study the atmosphere of Saturn with a Penny4NASA.

Gliders : The concept is quite evocative for me, and I decided to create a flash fiction story based on this motif. I earlier posted about Dynamic gliding here http://goo.gl/kF3zab

Thanks to +Charles Strebor, I wrote this piece, now on my blog http://www.lacerantplainer.com/

Slight detour from the regular posts, regular programming will resume tomorrow!

Despite multiple posts and reminders about single line posts (no we don't allow them), we keep seeing them here on the community. This is to confirm we will start banning posters for single lines like "See this" or "I read this book, what do you think?".

Please take the 5 minutes it takes to read the rules and guidelines for the community. If you have any questions please ask. You would be better off posting pics and videos on our sister community (also owned and run by the same mods) called Science Fiction Pics.

Thanks.

Interesting post on how to write in the Science on G+ community from +Gary Ray R. This would probably be a good thumb rule for most communities :)

Asking Questions

We get many questions from people here on Science on Google+ and I wanted to give some needed guidance.  

When you ask a question here, please show that you have done some preliminary work.  We are not here to do your research.

Research skills on Google need to be learned just like everything else.
I highly recommend that you take one of Google's online Power Searching classes.  
Go to http://www.google.com/insidesearch/searcheducation/
for more information and to take the class.  I guarantee that you will increase your ability to find out what you want more easliy and find more reliable results.

Wiki is an excellent resource for basic and more advanced subjects.  The references section at the end of the Wiki article is a good place to get more background information on subjects.

If you are searching for even more detailed information try http://scholar.google.com/
That is Google's in house high level search of papers and books about scholarly pursuits. 

Don't just look at one result, check more than one.  My thumb rule is to try to find at least three independent sources.  Remember there is a lot of misinformation online. Look at the URL of the site, that can give you some idea on the reliability of the site.  For example sites that end in .edu or .gov are usually reliable.

When you read an article in a science magazine or a science blog, check if they have the references, if not, don't trust them.  When they have references, find the original paper.  Often they are behind a paywall, but you can usually get the abstract and the supplemental information that will help you understand if the blog is over stating the results of the paper.

After doing some research if you are still stuck, ask specific and detailed questions.  Don't ask, "What do you think about X?  Or "How do you feel about Y?  Those are too open ended and often lead to off topic discussions and no answer to your inquiry.  

 Ask about what you are stuck on, like;  "I was reading this article about X + Y = Z,  and they were explaining Z and I don't understand how that works?"  And give a link to the article. 

Finally even if English is not your native language, try to write a readable question.  Text speak is really not appropriate for this community.

So ask questions, be curious, push yourself; and people will help. ___Interesting post on how to write in the Science on G+ community from +Gary Ray R. This would probably be a good thumb rule for most communities :)

Life after the discovery of the Higgs Boson : After the Nobel prize has gone deservedly to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert for positing it's existence around 50 years back, its time to take stock of what the discovery means...

A new headache for Physicists : For all the excitement the award has already generated, finding the Higgs — arguably the most important discovery in more than a generation — has left physicists without a clear roadmap of where to go next. While popular articles often describe how the Higgs might help theorists investigating the weird worlds of string theory, multiple universes, or supersymmetry, the truth is that no one is sure which of these models, if any, will eventually describe reality. The Standard Model is supposed to account for all known particles and their interactions, but scientists know that it’s incomplete.

Life after the discovery of the Higgs Boson : After the Nobel prize has gone deservedly to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert for positing it's existence around 50 years back, its time to take stock of what the discovery means...

A new headache for Physicists : For all the excitement the award has already generated, finding the Higgs — arguably the most important discovery in more than a generation — has left physicists without a clear roadmap of where to go next. While popular articles often describe how the Higgs might help theorists investigating the weird worlds of string theory, multiple universes, or supersymmetry, the truth is that no one is sure which of these models, if any, will eventually describe reality. The Standard Model is supposed to account for all known particles and their interactions, but scientists know that it’s incomplete.

Why is the Higgs so light? : When the particle was found, its mass was also pinned down and, coming in at about 125 gigaelectronvolts (GeV), the Higgs is surprisingly light. If this mass is plugged into the standard model along with the masses of all the other known particles, it leads to a prediction that the universe is unstable. And that points to new physics, says Buchmueller. Obviously the universe is here now, so a light Higgs raises the prospect of further particles to stabilise things. "If the Higgs boson had a mass of 135 to 140 GeV, the universe would have been stable. Then we really would have problems for what to do next," says Buchmueller.

'Standard model just accounts for 4% of matter' : Scientists hailed CERN's confirmation of the Higgs Boson in July of 2012, speculating that it could one day make light speed travel possible by "un-massing" objects or allow huge items to be launched into space by "switching off" the Higgs. CERN scientist Albert de Roeck likened it to the discovery of electricity, when he said humanity could never have imagined its future applications. CERN physicists hope that the "new physics" will provide a more straightforward explanation for the characteristics of the Higgs boson than that derived from the current Standard Model. This new physics is sorely needed to find solutions to a series of yet unresolved problems, as presently only the visible universe is explained, which constitutes just four percent of total matter.
