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.

"...in this field, almost everything is already discovered, and all that remains is to fill a few unimportant holes."
-University of Munich Physics Professor Philipp von Jolly, 1878

Today’s Google Doodle celebrates the 156th birthday of German physicist Max Planck, who in 1878 ignored his teacher’s words, quoted above, advising him against pursuing a career in Physics.

Planck continued on to originate the quantum theory with the Planck relation, describing how electromagnetic energy could be emitted only in quantized form E=hv, where h is Planck's constant (http://goo.gl/F39NMo) and v is the frequency of radiation.

Considered to be the cornerstone of quantum mechanics, Planck’s work, and subsequent advances by others “to fill a few unimportant holes”, has made possible a wide variety of technology that benefits our daily lives, fromtransisto... more »

Professional and Amateur Astronomers Join Forces

This quartet of galaxies comes from a collaboration of professional and amateur astronomers that combines optical data from amateur telescopes with data from the archives of NASA missions. Starting in the upper left and moving clockwise, the galaxies are M101 (the "Pinwheel Galaxy"), M81, Centaurus A, and M51 (the "Whirlpool Galaxy"). In these images, X-rays from Chandra are in pink, infrared data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope are red, and the optical data are in red, green, and blue.  The two astrophotographers who donated their images for these four images -- Detlef Hartmann and Rolf Olsen -- used their personal telescopes of 17.5 inches and 10 inches in diameter respectively.

This animation shows how astronomers use very precise spectrographs such as the HARPS instrument. As the planet orbits its gravitational pull causes the parent star to move back and forth. This tiny radial motion shifts the observed spectrum of the star by a correspondingly small amount because of the Doppler shift. With super-sensitive spectrographs such as HARPS the shifts can be measured and used to infer details of a planet’s mass and orbit.

Space Selfie! It's been said that it's difficult to get a good selfie while wearing a spacesuit, but an astronaut snapped this one during a spacewalk on April 23 outside the International Space Station! Astronauts Steve Swanson and Rick Mastracchio completed a short spacewalk to replace a failed Multiplexer/Demultiplexer (MDM) back up computer. The backup computer failed April 11 after a routine health check by the Mission Control team in Houston.

My final set of Coachella photos. 

Thank you so much to +BorrowLenses.com for lending us a 200 mm F2.0 (which I used in most of these photos) and a 400 mm F2.8 too. 

Extra special thanks to JBL/Harmon (they make many of the world's speakers) for bringing me to Coachella and putting us up in a nice hotel room. Plus getting us a photo pass (cameras aren't allowed at Coachella, so if we didn't get a photo pass, we would never be able to make these photos). 

Hope you enjoy. If you like these, check out +Thomas Hawk's photos. He has easily 10x more photos and better quality, too. I did learn some good stuff from him, but it's amazing when you shoot right next to a master photographer and then end up in his hotel room to watch how fast he processes photos (he brought a big Apple monitor down to Palm Desert to enable faster editing).

NASA Television will provide live coverage of the undocking of ISS Progress 53 from the Zvezda Service Module on the International Space Station beginning at 4:45 a.m. EDT. Undocking is scheduled for 4:58 a.m.

Russian flight controllers will command the resupply ship to undock from Zvezda in a test of an updated rendezvous system that will be used for Progress resupply spacecraft in the future. The new automated system, known as Kurs-NA, will use a single antenna, which will allow four others to be removed. The Kurs-NA-enabled Progress will have only three antennas, half as many as the current versions. Kurs-NA also will use less power, improve safety and possess updated electronics.

Watch the launch live on NASA Television or at http://www.nasa.gov/nasatv.

Arp 81: 100 Million Years Later
Image Credit: Hubble Legacy Archive, +European Space Agency, ESA, +NASA; Processing - Martin Pugh

From planet Earth, we see this strongly distorted pair of galaxies, cataloged as Arp 81, as they were only about 100 million years after their close encounter. The havoc wreaked by their mutual gravitational interaction during the encounter is detailed in this color composite image showing twisted streams of gas and dust, a chaos of massive star formation, and a tidal tail stretching for 200 thousand light-years or so as it sweeps behind the cosmic wreckage. Also known as NGC 6622 (left) and NGC 6621, the galaxies are roughly equal in size but are destined to merge into one large galaxy in the distant future, making repeated approaches until they finally coalesce. Located in the constellation Draco, the galaxies... more »

Why Earth Matters to NASA: A Conversation with Harrison Ford
U.S. Actor Harrison Ford was on location at NASA's Ames Research Center, Mountain View, California, in November 2013 to film a segment of Showtime's "Years of Living Dangerously" documentary on climate change. Ford toured the NASA Advanced Supercomputing facility where he met with scientists Rama Nemani of Ames and Matthew Hansen of the University of Maryland, College Park, to learn more about how NASA satellite data and research are used around the world to better understand and protect Earth.

James Webb Space Telescope@SXSW in Austin, Texas
The full-scale James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) model as displayed during the South by Southwest Festival in Austin, Texas, March 3-6, 2014.

Seeing Deeper: The Webb Space Telescope
The James Webb Space Telescope is NASA's next orbiting observatory and the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. A tennis court-sized telescope orbiting far beyond Earth's moon, Webb will detect infrared radiation and be capable of seeing in that wavelength as well as Hubble sees in visible light.

Infrared vision is vital to our understanding of the universe. The furthest objects we can detect are seen in infrared light, cooler objects that would otherwise be invisible emit infrared, and infrared light pierces clouds of dust, allowing us to see into their depths. Webb will unleash a torrent of new discoveries, opening... more »

During my time in Special Forces in Afghanistan, I was part of a SOG team dedicated to historical and cultural research (which covered both the obvious topics and the more arcane interests of +IQTech Research and the NIA).

Through my adult life and my time in SOG, I continued the research on #13MAGNUS that I had started as a grad student. It was through this research that I had originally met Calvin and become involved with the NIA ( http://goo.gl/g5wC3f ).

Binary Supermassive Black Hole System | European Space Agency
April 22, 2014: A pair of supermassive black holes in orbit around one another have been spotted by XMM-Newton. This is the first time such a pair have been seen in an ordinary galaxy. They were discovered because they ripped apart a star when the space observatory happened to be looking in their direction. This image is an artist's impression of a binary supermassive black hole system.

Most massive galaxies in the Universe are thought to harbour at least one supermassive black hole at their centre. Two supermassive black holes are the smoking gun that the galaxy has merged with another. Thus, finding binary supermassive black holes can tell astronomers about how galaxies evolved into their present-day shapes and sizes.

Recent Asteroid Impacts on Earth | B612 Foundation Video
Between 2000 and 2013, a network of sensors that monitors Earth around the clock listening for the infrasound signature of nuclear detonations detected 26 explosions on Earth ranging in energy from 1-600 kilotons – all caused not by nuclear explosions, but rather by asteroid impacts.

These findings were recently released from the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization, which operates the network.

To put this data in perspective, the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima in 1945 exploded with an energy impact of 15 kilotons. While most of these asteroids exploded too high in the atmosphere to do serious damage on the ground, the evidence is important in estimating the frequency of a potential “city-killer-size” asteroid.

The Earth is continuously colliding with fragments ofaster... more »

A Visualization Showing Where Asteroids Have Hit The Earth Since 2001

"A new visualization produced by the B612 foundations reveals 26 significant explosive events recorded from 2001 to 2013 that were not the result of nuclear detonations — but rather asteroids hitting the Earth. That's a surprise, to say the least."

Earth Day Meteor Shower! | SpaceWeather.com
April 22, 2014: Earth is passing through a stream of debris from ancient Comet Thatcher, source of the annual Lyrid meteor shower. Professor Peter Brown of the University of Western Ontario reports that "the Canadian Meteor Orbit Radar (CMOR) just finished processing orbital data from last night and the Lyrids are showing up quite nicely. The meteor rate is near 15 per hour so visual observers should have had a good view early this morning and should be able to easily detect the shower tonight."

This image displays an all-sky map of CMOR meteor radar echoes on April 22nd, 2014. The bright pink blob pinpoints the Lyrid radiant in the constellation Lyra. Other lesser showers are active, too, but they are much weaker. If you see a meteor tonight, it is probably a Lyrid.

Usually the Lyrid meteor shower is mild... more »
