Fraser Cain824,747Super Science Circle for October, 2013I know it's been a while, so it's time for a new Super Science Circle - the October 2013 edition.In case you weren't aware, the Super Science Circle is a list of more than 400 people who are actively engaged on Google+ and regularly post about science and education. We've got journalists, scientists, even a few astronauts. The Super Science Circle should be your best response to anyone who tells you that Google+ is just a ghost town. If you love science, this circle will deliver the goods.If you know anyone who actively posts about science, please let me know and I'll add them to the list.2013-10-04 20:14:53415304682CC G+

Then import my Super Science Circle and be amazed at the awesomeness.PLEASE RESHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!Every single person in this circle is active on Google+ and regularly contributes high quality posts about science. You've got my personal guarantee.As always, I recommend you import this group into a temporary circle and look for people who match your interests. Then pull them over into more permanent locations in your circles. Or just wait for me to give you an update next month.If you want to be included in this circle, just make a post in the comments and I'll check out your profile.I'm looking for people who:1. Are active on Google+ (but not too active)2. Regularly post about science3. Provide context and additional information, and not just bare links or annoying memes.2013-07-16 18:35:56415235986CC G+

Here is how.... add this circle!My VIP circle of top engagers melded with the circle of people who are my friends, supporters and essentially those who make what G+ is for me.Wonderfully supportive of my writing, posting and most of them are now close friends. When I started out, it was all about engagement, I did not expect so many friends! (I may have missed some people here due to oversight, please just comment and I will rectify it. No sleight is intended).Thank you all for being who you are and for the wonderful time on Googleplus!!

Fraser Cain779,548Super Science Circle - May 2013 EditionNeed more science in your Google+? Well, here's all the science you can handle! Enjoy my latest, heavily curated edition of the Super Science Circle.Please share this circle... for Science!For the uninitiated, I maintain a circle of 450+ people who are active on Google+ and regularly post on Google+. In this circle you'll find scientists, journalists, astronauts, educators, and science enthusiasts. By importing this circle into your own circles, you'll immediately gain a vibrant and fascinating feed of amazing science stories.I recognize that it might be too much science, so I suggest you create a brand new temporary circle and evaluate the people in the circle. Only transfer the keepers to your permanent circles. Then, when I update the circle next month, rinse and repeat.Are you active on G+ and regularly post about science? +mention me and I'll check out your profile.Remember, please share this post2013-05-22 19:26:51456348390CC G+
Fraser Cain770,050Super Science Circle - April 2013 EditionIt's time for another sharing of my Super Science Circle. This is a collection of 400+ active people on Google+ who often post about science. If anyone tells you G+ is a ghost town (not that anyone does any more), get them to import this circle. PLEASE SHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!I have personally reviewed each and every person on this list, to make sure that they:1. Are active and engaged on Google+2. Regularly post science-related stories on Google+In this list you'll find scientists, journalists, researchers, professors, astronauts and general science enthusiasts. Not everyone in this list is going to be to your personal liking. So what you'll want to do is import the list into a temporary circle. Then move people over one by one into more permanent locations in your circles.I'm always looking for more people to add to the list, so if you know people who meet my criteria, feel free to nominate them.Again, please share the circle.

Fraser Cain759,117The Return of the Super Science CircleOkay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:1. Active in the last 30 days or so.2. Regularly post on scientific topics.If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST2013-03-19 22:39:3139967163160CC G+

Well, not only were more women added as a result of our discussions (Thanks, Google!) but we put together a list or YOUR recommendations for your favorite ladies of science. These women do science, teach science, talk about science, or just plain LOVE science, and they share it with all of us here on Google+. Still missing you or one of your favorites?

Fraser Cain694,882The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!2013-01-17 02:59:31420544084CC G+

Peter Smalley (Merkabah)10,068#sharedpubliccircles   #science  It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!2012-11-26 17:29:545015211CC G+
Paul Christen0To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to  children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side  of the  proverbial  coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love  of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this  circle  might help.2012-11-07 13:15:584135110CC G+

Saying my good-byes to ESOC (European Space Operations Center) at the European Space Agency in Darmstadt, Germany. 

Since its creation in 1967, ESOC, located in Darmstadt, Germany, has planned missions, operated more than 60 satellites and ensured that spacecraft meet their mission objectives. The mandate of ESOC is to conduct mission operations for ESA satellites and to establish, operate and maintain the necessary ground-segment infrastructure.

Next stop - seeing my wonderful family friends "The Neumanns"!

This is for my German speaking friends! Great interview of Alexander Gerst, German Astronaut and launching to the space station in just a little over 40 days. Even more cool, my dear friend (who I will soon see again) Eico Neumann got one of his questions answered. And it was a good one too... special appearance by +Samantha Cristoforetti - she flies almost as graceful as yours truly (in zero-G that is!). 

And Alex is taking a mouse mascot with him to the ISS! He and Reid Wiseman rock. They really do.

Today was an incredible day here in Rome. I got to visit the Vatican Observatory. Wow!

In its historical roots the Vatican Observatory is one of the oldest astronomical institutions in the world. The first foreshadowing of the Observatory can be traced to Pope Gregory XIII and the constitution of a committee to study the scientific data and implications involved in the reform of the Julian calendar in use since 45 B.C. That calendar contained a tiny error in determining the length of the year, and by the late 1500s the error had grown large enough to make timing of Church holy days out of sync with their respective seasons. The committee working on the project included Fr. Christoph Clavius, a Jesuit mathematician from the Roman College, who expounded and explained the reform of the calendar.

The staff of the Vatican Observatory spend a great deal of their time on research projects... more »

Ciao from Rome! We have arrived, already done some sightseeing and now we are doing the ‪#‎Lucatweetup‬ here with the wonderful people from the +European Space Agency, ESA.

My buddy Daniel Scuka is ready and gives the thumb up!
ESRIN, known as the ESA Centre for Earth Observation, is one of the five ESA specialised centres situated in Europe. Located in Frascati, a small town 20 km south of Rome in Italy, ESRIN was established in 1966 and first began acquiring data from environmental satellites in the 1970s.

Earth Observation data has grown in importance as more and more international and national agencies recognise the many uses to which it can be put. Satellites for Earth observation keep a constant watch over the Earth and the data they provide help to safeguard the planet in which we live.

Since 2004, ESRIN has been the headquarters for ESA's EarthObser... more »

Are you celebrating Yuri's Night on April 12? Yes, every year on this date we come together and celebrate and remember the very first spaceflight. Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin launched on April 12, 1961 and made history; the first human in space. On the very same date but 20 years later, the first Space Shuttle launched into orbit. 

Great reasons to commemorate and have fun. Find a party close by at http://yurisnight.net./ 

I have my Yuri's Night pin and t-shirt, thanks to my dear friend Angeliki Kanellopoulou!

Hello from Boston and the National Science Teacher Association 2014 Conference.

Wow, look what I got to see! This is an Eurasian Eagle-owl. They combine fast and powerful flights with shallow wing beats and long, fast glides. They also soar on updrafts, displaying a type of flight similar to that of soaring hawks like the Red-tailed Hawk. Eurasian Eagle-owls are among the world's largest owls and their pumpkin orange eyes and feathery ear tufts make them one of the most striking owls in the world. 

Their wingspan is between 5-6 feet and they are about 2 1/2 feet long, weighting up to 9 lbs. Their scientific name is Bubo Bubo! LOL

Happy April 1st! We all know what day is today, right?

So, I came across this great April Fools joke and I wanted to share it with you and give you my thoughts on it. It's from +Southwest Airlines and their latest destination; Mars!

Now let's review this and allow me to give you my suggestions.

When you book your flight with SWA from Earth to Mars, don't fly before July 27, 2018. Why? Well, that's because we will be much closer to Mars that day, then let's say next week.

On April 8, 2014 we will be 57.5 million miles away from Mars. But on July, 2018 we will only be 35.8 million miles away.

Why is that? Well, planets don't orbit the Sun in a circular orbit. They orbit in an ellipse one. That is why in January Earth is closest to the Sun and in July Earth is the furthest away from our Star. The difference is a good 3.1 million... more »

Oh! Look what my dear teacher friend Janelle Harrier Wilson just found in her school's media center? 

I will be seeing Janelle and many other teacher friends next week at NSTA in Boston. Are you ready Jennifer Cheesman, Kaci Pilcher Heins and Ljo Hammer?

Who else will be there?

The NSTA is the National Science Teacher Association and they have been helping science educators for close to 70 years. NSTA also helps connecting teachers with each other - in person and online! Ultimately, it is about the kids and getting them excited about STEM!

The wonderful ladies from the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago taught me how to identify animal pool properly. There was no chicken poo - we don't do that... 

The Lincoln Park Zoo is dedicated to connecting people with nature through a free, family-oriented wildlife experience.

Feces identification, also known as scat, can be a difficult task as feces change according to the animal's diet. However, by asking the right questions you can go a long way to reduce the number of available suspects.

Be safe. Droppings are dirty and germy. Avoid handling droppings without proper protection, which includes avoiding inhaling around it. Some diseases may contracted through dust borne particles.

Hello from Family Science Days. There is so much hands-on including touching and learning about the brain. Your brain is the boss of your body. It runs the show and controls just about everything you do, even when you're asleep. Not bad for something that looks like a big, wrinkly, gray sponge.

These here were not human brains (obviously, these would just roll around inside the skull..hehehe). But the human brain is a complex organ that allows us to think, move, feel, see, hear, taste, and smell. It controls our body, receives information, analyzes information, and stores information (our memories).

The brain produces electrical signals, which, together with chemical reactions, let the parts of the body communicate. Nerves send these signals throughout the body.

The average human brain weighs about 3 pounds (1300-1400 g).

At birth, the human brain weighs less... more »

Today I am dedicated my thoughts to Jennifer, 6 years old and suffering from DIPG. 

"Yesterday 7 children died from cancer.
….my child wasn’t one of them.
Today 7 children will die from cancer.
My daughter is one of them.
She gifted me her first and her last breathe. . .
and so many beautiful ones in between."

A Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a tumor located in the pons (middle) of the brain stem. The brain stem is the bottom most portion of the brain, connecting the cerebrum with the spinal cord. The majority of brain stem tumors occur in the pons (middle brain stem) and are diffusely infiltrating, (they grow amidst the nerves), and therefore are not able to be surgically removed.

The Sun is always changing and NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory is always watching. Launched on February 11, 2010, SDO keeps a 24-hour eye on the entire disk of the Sun, with a prime view of the graceful dance of solar material coursing through the Sun's atmosphere, the corona. SDO's fourth year in orbit was no exception: NASA is releasing a movie of some of SDO's best sightings of the year, including massive solar explosions and giant sunspot shows.

SDO captures images of the Sun in 10 different wavelengths, each of which helps highlight a different temperature of solar material. Different temperatures can, in turn, show specific structures on the Sun such as solar flares, which are giant explosions of light and x-rays, or coronal loops, which are streams of solar material traveling up and down looping magnetic field lines. 

The movie shows examples of both, as well... more »

NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, best known for cutting-edge images of the Sun, has made a discovery right here on Earth. 

"It's a new form of ice halo," says atmospheric optics expert Les Cowley of England. "We saw it for the first time at the launch of SDO--and it is teaching us new things about how shock waves interact with clouds." 

Ice halos are rings and arcs of light that appear in the sky when sunlight shines through ice crystals in the air. A familiar example is the sundog—a rainbow-colored splash often seen to the left or right of the morning sun. Sundogs are formed by plate-shaped ice crystals drifting down from the sky like leaves fluttering from trees. 

Four years ago, during my launch my Atlas V rocket 
destroyed a sundog—and that's how the new halo was discovered.

Oh, I also have to tell you about this morning's keynote speaker! Somebody very special! 

Astronaut Jerry Ross delivered a very fascinating keynote. I enjoyed listening to his stories. 

He is the co-holder of an amazing record of seven space-flights. Imagine that - 7 trips to Space. 7 times leaving Earth's gravitational pull and 7 times coming back and meeting that force again. 7 times experiencing the moment of weightlessness. Just amazing! 

Astronaut Jerry Ross supported the Space Shuttle Program as an Astronaut from before the first launch in April 1981 to the last landing in July 2011. He also supported the International Space Station Program from its inception through the completion of assembly of the ISS in 2011.

Flight Director +Ed Van Cise  and I got into the TARDIS and took a trip back in time. We arrived in a room full of history. A room filled with greenish big and bulky stations, big buttons and dials, old telephones, and a pneumatic tube canisters in consoles. At times cigarette smoke filled the room and a flight director with a vest was leading the groups. Today this room is a National Historic Landmark, filled with space flight stories.

Since 1965, Mission Control has been the helm of America’s human spaceflights. Since International Space Station assembly began in 1998, the center has become a focal point for human spaceflight worldwide. The teams that work in Mission Control, Houston, have been vital to every U.S. human spaceflight since the Gemini IV mission in 1965, including the Apollo missions that took humans to the moon and the more than 110 space shuttle flights since 1981.

Ed stressed that teachers need to stress to students the importance of teamwork, communication and leadership. You must learn to get along with others. 

Ed will be the Flight Director for Expedition 40/41 with Astro Reid Wiseman and Alex Gerst. You know, the crew I was supposed to be flying with. But now I will cheer them on from the ground and it will be extra special. Just wait! I have some awesome things planed. They will be launching in just a little over 100 days from now...

Zuni Hills Science Expo last night was so much fun. Great kids. Great Inventions.

The US has become a global leader, in large part, through the genius and hard work of its scientists, engineers and innovators. Yet today, that position is threatened as comparatively few American students pursue expertise in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)—and by an inadequate pipeline of teachers skilled in those subjects.

Only 16 percent of American high school seniors are proficient in mathematics and interested in a STEM career.

Even among those who do go on to pursue a college major in the STEM fields, only about half choose to work in a related career. The United States is falling behind internationally, ranking 25th in mathematics and 17th in science among industrialized nations.

We were playing reading Jeopardy - and this team had named themselves the 5 Quackers - so I became their mascot. I suppose that's ok to be the Quacker's mascot, right? After all, there are some people who nick-named me "The Duck!".

And then we had a very special guest speaker here. Do you recognize this gentleman? 

Yes, this is Astronaut Stephen Bowen and he is the first Submarine Officer selected by NASA in July 2000 as a mission specialist.

A veteran of three trips to space, STS-126 in 2008, STS-132 in 2010, and STS-133 in 2011, Astro Bowen has logged a total of 40 days, 10 hours, 4 minutes and 37 seconds in space, including 47 hours and 18 minutes of EVA in 7 spacewalks.

Astro Bowen told the kids to work hard and remember what they learn.H... more »

Antsonauts now on the International Space Station - in the name of science, research and the development of better algorithms for autonomous robots. Wow, #STEM  is awesome. What a great Stanford University project, lead by Professor Deborah Gordon. 

I wonder if any of these ants have experiences SAS (Space Adaptation Syndrome) on the "Garn Scale"

Good morning everyone! 

Oh, I have a wonderful story for you all today.

Ever wondered why a flock of birds always flies in a V formation. Why not a Z or G one? Well, scientists have found that birds position themselves and time their wing beats so perfectly that, according to aerodynamic theory, they minimize their energy use. It's a task that requires each bird to monitor subtle changes in its wing mates' flight and alter its own path and stroke accordingly.

When the researchers analyzed the data from 14 young ibises flying in a V, they found that each ibis placed itself an average of four feet behind the bird in front of it and at an average angle of 45 degrees. That's just the configuration needed for individual birds to catch the rising air generated by the flapping of the bird in front of it. By capturing this rising air, or "upwash," the bird... more »

This totally made me smile. I just came across this write up on the PBS website. Oh, the wonderful memories! 

This picture was taken on the Red Square in Moscow and Astronaut Ride Wiseman thought it would be funny to introduce me to a monkey... what happened next was that I got a big kiss and ended up with monkey pox! 

The sunrise picture was right before the Total Solar Eclipse on the beach of the Gold Coast in Australia.

What defines who you are as a person? 

Please watch this wonderful TEDx talk by Lizzie Velasquez for TEDx Austin Women. What truly defines you is not what you look like, but who you are and what positive impact you have.

On my way back home I flew over the Walton Lighthouse in Santa Cruz, California. 

It was all nicely decorated with lights, reflecting nicely in the water. And then right above it I spotted planet Venus. 

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas.

My dear friend John M Knight made me a little Lego Skylab for Christmas. What a joy he is! Don't you think?

When I looked at it my facial expression reminded me of Pete Conrad. What do you think? Pete was the Astronaut's Astronaut and not only a very accomplished and talented man, but also one who always liked to make others smile or play a prank on them! 

Conrad commanded the Gemini 11 mission in September 1966, in which he and co-pilot Richard Gordon established the fastest rendezvous and docking in history and a new altitude record of almost 850 miles above the Earth.

Bean and Gordon joined Conrad on the Apollo 12 mission in November 1969, forming an all-Navy crew. Conrad and Bean proved that pinpoint landings could be made on the lunar surface and conducted the first significant science operations during their 31 hours on the Ocean of Storms.
