Ian Herndon8,223Shared Circle Time! - G+ Community Moderators (4 of x)Re-Share to help moderators easily connect with one another!Now that Google has launched Communities there has been a ton of activity by people to create communities relating to their interests, join ones created by others, and meet other creators in an effort to learn more and more new ways to build and contribute to G+ Communities. +Community Moderators is an example of a page/community dedicated specifically to having a single place where all moderators can join in discussion around just that.I have been hard at work creating Circles that consist of Community Moderators and Owners only. My hope is to be able to help others expand their network of friends to also include like minded people dabbling in the Community space too. In the near future I intend to eventually group these moderator circles into smaller more targeted ones tailored to specific interests. So with that said, here's our circles!G+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (1 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/ETe6deLAMq2G+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (2 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/7i2DXeQpknnG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (3 of x) - 12/31/2012https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/j1rsi9YGGVgG+ Community Moderators & Owners Circle (4 of x) - 1/12/2013https://plus.google.com/u/0/110099838681495349209/posts/VFUjZcifXPQ#Community   #Moderators   #Owners   #Communities   #Circle   #SharedCircles   #CircleShare2013-01-12 15:28:345005210CC G+

For those of you who are brand new to the service, I want you to understand:The key to enjoying Google+ is to have an active and engaged stream of content. Circle interesting people.To help you out, I'm sharing my carefully curated science circle. This list contains almost 250 people who are active on Google+ and regularly post about science topics. We've got scientists, journalists and science enthusiasts.If you import this circle, you'll see what I'm seeing, and I think you'll get why I like Google+ so much. If you don't import it, you'll see an empty screen and wonder why your friends haven't joined.I try to share this circle once a month or so, with some new faces, and the inactive people removed.

Bulletproof glass, demonstration by the best rifle man of the New York police, 1931. Bulletproof glass was actually started on during WW1 with the invention of glass tempering or dropping hot glass into water which strengthened it considerably. However, this bulletproof glass was created by gluing plates of glass together with a rubber compound in between the layers. Not shown: the proceeding five test subjects for whom things did not go so well.

Could life thrive in the devastated rock left behind after a meteorite impact? A new study hints that possibly, that could be the case. Researchers discovered what they think are geological records of biological activity inside of a crater in Germany.

Red Moon, Green Beam! | Astronomy Picture of The Day
This is not a scene from a sci-fi special effects movie. The green beam of light and red lunar disk are real enough, captured in the early morning hours of April 15, 2014. Of course, the reddened lunar disk is easy to explain as the image was taken during this week's total lunar eclipse. Immersed in shadow, the eclipsed Moon reflects the dimmed reddened light of all the sunsets and sunrises filtering around the edges of planet Earth, seen in silhouette from a lunar perspective. But the green beam of light really is a laser! 

Shot from the 3.5-meter telescope at Apache Point Observatory in southern New Mexico, the beam's path is revealed as Earth's atmosphere scatters some of the intense laser light. The laser's target is the Apollo 15 retroreflector, left on the Moon by the astronauts in 1971. By... more »

(Phys.org) —A pair of astronomers at the University of Washington has discovered the first known instance of a self-lensing binary-star system. In their paper published in the journal Science, Ethan Kruse and Eric Agol describe how they happened across the previously theorized system while looking for undiscovered planets.

SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon were rolled to the launch pad at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station’s Space Launch Complex 40 overnight and rotated vertical at about 8 a.m. EDT. Launch is targeted for 3:25 p.m. NASA Television coverage will begin at 2:15 p.m. A launch on Friday results in a rendezvous with the International Space Station on Sunday, April 20 and a grapple at 7:14 a.m. NASA TV coverage will begin at 5:45 a.m. with berthing coverage beginning at 9:30 a.m. 

The U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron predicts a 40 percent chance of favorable conditions for the launch of SpaceX-3 to the International Space Station today. There is a chance of showers and thunderstorms that could cause violations of the Thick Cloud, Lightning and Flight Through Precipitation rules. For a backup launch opportunity on Saturday the weather is 60 percent “go” with a possibility of violating theThick ... more »

L-220: Logbook

Last manual docking training sessions these days before the upcoming exam. With my instructor, Sasha, we've been focusing on the most tricky scenarios to make sure I'm ready. So, what makes a scenario more difficult than others?

The type of failure, for example: a "simple"  Kurs malfuction, meaning that the Soyuz can't orient itself to Station any more, or rather a full computer failure? With a functioning computer we can turn on a function that compensates for the rotation of the ISS. When the Station is in its standard attitude with the stack of pressurized modules oriented along the velocity vector, it rotates about 4 degrees per minute as it tracks along the orbit. With the compensation function turned on, the computer automatically fires the thrusters to match that rotation, so that to us the ISS looks as though it was inertiallys... more »

When humans leave Earth to explore planets like Mars and other hostile environments in outer space, they'll need to supply their own breathable oxygen. NASA is now seeking proposals for systems to safely and efficiently regenerate air on those long trips.

Why There Will Be A Robot Uprising ... where's Asimov's Three Laws when we really need them? ... DefenseOne.com "... Put simply, robots are utility function junkies.

Even the smallest input that indicates that they’re performing their primary function better, faster, and at greater scale is enough to prompt them to keep doing more of that regardless of virtually every other consideration. That’s fine when you are talking about a simple program like Excel but becomes a problem when AI entities capable of rudimentary logic take over weapons, utilities or other dangerous or valuable assets.

In such situations, better performance will bring more resources and power to fulfill that primary function more fully, faster, and at greater scale. More importantly, these systems don’t worry about costs in terms of relationships, discomfort to others, etc., unlessthose co... more »

The fear of change is deeply rooted in humans. We must over come this or be doomed to be nothing more than some animals which destroy something new out of fear of it. We must look to the future of course with caution but with a steady perspective of the benefit to all of the world from the change instead of just brushing it off out of fear.

Hop in a self driving car. Explore with +Google Glass. Greet the robots as you would a new possible friend.

Be open minded to the possibilities and do not bash them with clubs and run back to your caves telling stories of the horrors. Look deeper.

Node 2 model - photographed by Edgar Martins.

Node 2 is a European-built module of the International Space Station that serves as utility room, docking port and sleeping quarters. It was built in Italy for NASA and installed on the Space Station in 2007.

This photo is part of a comprehensive photographic survey of our facilities around the globe, together with those of our international partners - the results are collected in a book and exhibition.

Project Tango Prepping for Launch Into Space

Since the summer of 2013, the Project Tango team has been working closely with a team at the NASA Ames Research Center.  The goal: to integrate a Project Tango prototype onto a robotic platform, called SPHERES, that flies inside the International Space Station. The SPHERES program aims to develop zero-gravity autonomous platforms that could act as robotic assistants for astronauts or perform maintenance activities independently on station.  The 3D-tracking and mapping capabilities of Project Tango would allow SPHERES to reconstruct a 3D-map of the space station and, for the first time in history, enable autonomous navigation of a floating robotic platform 230 miles above the surface of the earth.

Project Tango and SPHERES are scheduled to be launched into orbit this summer. The future is awesome.

Scientists find that the Universe's voids have weight, suggesting they are not really empty and might contain Dark Matter

"(Phys.org) —Cosmologists have established that much of the stuff of the universe is made of dark matter, a mysterious, invisible substance that can't be directly detected but which exerts a gravitational pull on surrounding objects. Dark matter is thought to exist in a vast network of filaments throughout the universe, pulling luminous galaxies into an interconnected web of clusters, interspersed with seemingly empty voids.

Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania have measured the "weight" of these cosmic voids and filaments for the first time, showing the former are not as empty as they look.
 
The studies of voids and filaments are currently available on the ArXiv and were conducted by graduate student JosephCl... more »
