CosmoQuest42,745Thank you to everyone who participated in International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) 2015! And thank you to everyone who shared your pictures and stories through InOMN social media! 554 sites registered this year–almost 100 more than in 2014.  To thank you for participating in this global celebration of lunar and planetary science, we are going to bounce you off the Moon! Well, not you specifically. But, we are going to bounce the map of all registered InOMN 2015 events off the Moon as part of the OPTICKS live event on Tuesday, October 27. If you participated in an InOMN event, your event information will go to the Moon as radio waves! We will also select 9 photographs to bounce off the Moon along with the InOMN event map, through a random drawing. If you took a picture during an InOMN event, or if you have or take a picture of anyone looking at or learning about the Moon that you would like to add to the drawing, post them to the InOMN Flickr or Facebook pages, or using #moonnight on Twitter by Sunday, October 25. If you participated in InOMN 2015 and haven’t yet registered your event, register by October 25 and you’ll be on the event map sent to the Moon. Links to the InOMN social media pages are available through http://observethemoonnight.org (scroll to the bottom of any page on the website). Then, everyone is invited to join us live in a CosmoQuest Google Hangout as the Moon Bounce Team, including visual artist Daniela de Paulis and radio amateurs around the world, bounces these images off of the Moon and answer your questions on October 27 at 23:00 Central European Time / 6:00pm Eastern Daylight Time / 3:00pm Pacific Daylight Time. Watch the InOMN website or InOMN social media for the Hangout link, which will be posted an hour before the event. Thanks again for participating in InOMN 2015! Mark your calendars: next year InOMN will take place on October 8, 2016.OPTICKS & InOMN: Bounce off the Moon!2015-10-27 22:00:0028

Peter Lake10,027Last look at the approach of Comet Siding Spring to Mars from Australia. The closest approach will not be visible from Australia ...... but just 6-7 hours before that we'll look at the latest images from the iTelescope.net Observatory (Q62) at Siding Spring nearby where Robert McNaught (E12) discovered this most interesting comet in January 2013 ( the origin of the  2013 A1 name). The comet is very faint at about Magnitude 13 and Mars is very bright. We normally don't use these telescopes to directly image the planets as they are science instruments and the planets are way too bright, it will be tricky to keep Mars mostly out of shot or just on the edge of the frame.Live coverage of Comet C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring) approaching Mars2014-10-19 12:00:00192

Pamela L. Gay88,019Join Marty Quinn as he introduces CRaTER Live, a new, free Internet Radio Station where users around the world can listen to cosmic rays hitting the Moon, both from deep space, and as result of coronal mass ejections from the Sun. CRaTER Live presents data counts per second from the six cosmic ray detectors that form the Cosmic Ray Telescope for the Effects of Radiation instrument on board NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter or LRO mission. LRO orbits the moon every two hours, and sends data related to the six detectors every second back to Earth through NASA's space communications network. That means that CRaTER receives live data for 60 minutes, then replays that data for the next 60 minutes while CRaTER goes behind the moon and loses communication in the process. The data is encoded so that small solar events, as well as large solar storm events alter the music pitches that play the detector counts in dramatic ways, changing instruments and scales as cosmic ray counts increase. In the twenty minute introduction to CRaTER Live, Quinn will introduce the sonification design so listeners will be able to decode the sounds for themselves, and discuss various options to listen on the web, or on your mobile device 24 hours a day. Quinn will be joined by members of the CRaTER team, as well as visually impaired students from St Lucy Day School for the Blind in Philadelphia.CRaTER Live2014-04-22 19:00:009  
Pamela L. Gay88,019During this live performance radio signals will be used to send images to the Moon from radio antennas in one of three locations around the world, Brazil, the UK or Switzerland. These signals will bounce off the Moon and return to Earth where they will be picked up by the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope. These moonbounced images will be presented in real time as they return from the Moon and at the end of the performance they will be printed and mailed back as postcards to the people who submitted them.GAM: OPTICKS2014-04-13 21:00:0018

Each segment will be released after the event as a stand-alone YouTube video on the AstrosphereVids channel, thus creating a library of content while raising money for future programs.  Planning for this Hangout-a-thon was triggered by the cuts created by sequestration, and by the current White House plans to transition education out of NASA. If the President's current budget is passed, all the funding programs CosmoQuest relies on for will be zeroed (see http://bit.ly/11m5XYg) and the project will be defunded. Rather than accept that fate, CosmoQuest is working to raise the funds needed to keep their programs going, to build new citizen science programs for researchers that don't otherwise have the means to accomplish their projects, and to contract, as they are able, extraordinary people laid off by these cuts at other institutions to keep doing great things through CosmoQuest. (Links to essays on these cuts are listed below).   CosmoQuest wants to make sure astronomy education survives and remains strong. While one team, and one telethon can't fix everything, they hope this event can raise awareness, while protected one small corner of astronomy research and education. #hangoutathon  The CosmoQuest 24 Hour Hangout-A-Thon - Main Event Page2013-06-15 18:00:00317

The Planetary Society6,287,726This week we will be talking about the effects of the impending Sequester, the across-the-board cuts to almost all federal programs, on NASA and the U.S. Space Program. The Sequester is scheduled to begin on March 1st, 2013, unless Congress acts to replace it with targeted cuts and/or revenue of equal value. Joining me is a very special guest from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Dr. Jon Morse. Dr. Morse previously served as the Director of NASA's Astrophysics Division in Washington, D.C., and was a Senior Policy Analyst for the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). He currently serves as the Associate Vice President for Research for Physical Sciences & Engineering at RPI. Dr. Morse will bring a wealth of experience on how last minute budget cuts can effect the direction and capability within NASA, how a division makes decisions to prioritize programs, and what it's like to work for NASA headquarters. As always, we will be taking your questions on our Google+ event page, Twitter via the hashtag #planetarylive, or on the YouTube comments thread for the video. Please feel free to submit a question in advance if you cannot watch live.Planetary Society Hangout: Sequestration at NASA with Jon Morse2013-02-21 21:00:00150

NASA2,835,213Fifty years ago, President John Kennedy challenged us to go to the moon within the decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.   As we remember Neil Armstrong this week – the man who, with a single step realized the hopes of a president, this nation and the world – we are recognizing the extraordinary achievements of the past five decades achieved by our nation's space agency and where the passion to explore will lead us in the future.   President Barack Obama has set NASA on course toward an asteroid and to send humans to Mars within the next two decades. This goal is not without notable challenges, but using the knowledge, expertise and American ingenuity that has been the trademark of NASA scientists and engineers for the last half-century, NASA continues to make possible that which is seemingly impossible.   At 3:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, September 12, NASA astronauts, scientists and engineers will hold a Google+ Hangout to talk about NASA's rich history of innovation and ingenuity and talk about NASA's future goals for scientific discovery and human spaceflight. During the event, we'll be joined by: - Dan Dumbacher, Deputy Associate Administrator for Exploration Systems Development in NASA's Human Exploration and Operations Mission Directorate. He is the former Director of Engineering at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center. Previously, he was the deputy director of safety and mission assurance at Marshall. - Ron Garan, astronaut who lived and worked aboard the International Space Station. He has been in space for 178 days and has conducted four spacewalks. - John Grunsfeld, Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate. He is an astronaut and researcher in high energy astrophysics, cosmic ray physics, and in the emerging field of exoplanet studies. He was also the deputy director of the Space Telescope Science Institute, managing the science program for the Hubble Space Telescope and the forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope. - Michael Lopez-Alegria, the President of the Commercial Spaceflight Federation. He is a former Naval Aviator and test pilot (Capt., U.S. Navy, Ret.), NASA astronaut and International Space Station (ISS) commander.

New Blog Post: “What you don’t know would make a great book.”

excerpt: "OOver the past few weeks, several stories have hit the news that the average, mainstream/majority person has often struggled to fully understand and to discuss with sensitivity. Topics range from the mishandled coverage of Caitlyn Jenner’s eloquent coming out in Vogue, to bungled discussions of Rachel Dolezal’s behavior that horrifically convolve (among other things) acts of racism, white privilege, and injection of a not officially defined trans-racial mental illness.  Over and over in the social media discussions on these topics I’ve seen a consistent plea, “Go find someone in these communities and talk to them.” Yes, do this. But also, remember (especially relevant for introverts) the words of 18th century humorist Sydney Smith, “What you don’t know would make a great book.” In fact, itwouldn’t just make a gr... more »

One of the biggest, most basic questions you can ask is: “why is there something and not nothing?” The reality is that we don’t know the answer, we might never know the answer. Let's probe to the edge of what we can explain, and what ideas cosmologists have proposed to explain how we all got here.___starting nowish

 In the last few episodes, we’ve been talking about the standard model of physics, explaining what everything is made up of. But the reality is that we probably don’t know a fraction of how everything is put together. This week we’re going to talk about baryons, the particles made up of quarks. The most famous ones are the proton and the neutron, but that’s just the tip of the baryonic iceberg. And then we’re going to talk about where the standard model ends, and what’s next in particle physics.___Starting NOW

Thank you to everyone who participated in International Observe the Moon Night (InOMN) 2015! And thank you to everyone who shared your pictures and stories through InOMN social media! 554 sites registered this year–almost 100 more than in 2014. 




To thank you for participating in this global celebration of lunar and planetary science, we are going to bounce you off the Moon!



Well, not you specifically. But, we are going to bounce the map of all registered InOMN 2015 events off the Moon as part of the OPTICKS live event on Tuesday, October 27. If you participated in an InOMN event, your event information will go to the Moon as radio waves!

We will also select 9 photographs to bounce off the Moon along with the InOMN event map, through a random drawing. If you took a picture during an InOMN event, or if you have or take a picture of anyone looking at or learning about the Moon that you would like to add to the drawing, post them to the InOMN Flickr or Facebook pages, or using #moonnight on Twitter by Sunday, October 25. If you participated in InOMN 2015 and haven’t yet registered your event, register by October 25 and you’ll be on the event map sent to the Moon. Links to the InOMN social media pages are available through http://observethemoonnight.org (scroll to the bottom of any page on the website).

Then, everyone is invited to join us live in a CosmoQuest Google Hangout as the Moon Bounce Team, including visual artist Daniela de Paulis and radio amateurs around the world, bounces these images off of the Moon and answer your questions on October 27 at 23:00 Central European Time / 6:00pm Eastern Daylight Time / 3:00pm Pacific Daylight Time. Watch the InOMN website or InOMN social media for the Hangout link, which will be posted an hour before the event.

Thanks again for participating in InOMN 2015! Mark your calendars: next year InOMN will take place on October 8, 2016.___Starting in 10minutes!

New Blog Post: “What you don’t know would make a great book.”

excerpt: "OOver the past few weeks, several stories have hit the news that the average, mainstream/majority person has often struggled to fully understand and to discuss with sensitivity. Topics range from the mishandled coverage of Caitlyn Jenner’s eloquent coming out in Vogue, to bungled discussions of Rachel Dolezal’s behavior that horrifically convolve (among other things) acts of racism, white privilege, and injection of a not officially defined trans-racial mental illness.  Over and over in the social media discussions on these topics I’ve seen a consistent plea, “Go find someone in these communities and talk to them.” Yes, do this. But also, remember (especially relevant for introverts) the words of 18th century humorist Sydney Smith, “What you don’t know would make a great book.” In fact, itwouldn’t just make a gr... more »

Astronomers rely on the optics of their instruments, and there are some basic limits that you just can't avoid. Whatever we look at is distorted by the optics, in fact, a basic property of light means that we'll never get perfect optics. Here's why we can't "magnify and enhance" forever.___Starting momentarily!

As children, we’re taught to paint cold things blue and hot things red. In science we learn that blue things are actually far hotter than red things! In this Hangout, we will learn how hot objects radiate energy as light of many colors following what is called a black body curve.

Get your mid-day bang of science.

We can’t observer how the universe formed, but scientists are still willing to say that we know the universe was created through a Big Bang. In this scenario, students will learn the three main lines of evidence for the Big Bang: the universe is expanding, the Cosmic Microwave Radiation, and the mixture of chemical elements.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 377: Thomson finds Electron
At the end of the 19th century, physicists were finally beginning to understand the nature of matter itself, including the discovery of electrons - tiny particles of negative charge that surround the nucleus. Here's how J.J. Thompson separated the electrons from their atoms and uncovered their nature.___Get charged with your Monday #momantofscience

Today, we are able to study the universe in many colors that can’t be seen with our eyes. From detecting X-rays, to listening to the radio universe, we are able to use digital detectors to “see” hidden aspects of distant objects. In this Hangout, we will review the electromagnetic spectrum.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 374: Stern-Gerlach Experiment

In the world of quantum mechanics, particles behave in discreet ways. One breakthrough experiment was the Stern-Gerlach Experiment, performed in 1922. They passed silver atoms through a magnetic field and watched how the spin of the atoms caused the particles to deflect in a very specific way.___Come get your Monday #MomentofScience

Much of the evolution of the universe can be described through the pull of gravity and push of pressure. Gravity condenses gas, it heats up, and if it can, it expands, and if it can’t, stars are formed. In this Hangout, we will consider the gas laws, and look at different kinds of nebulae.
