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 post||2013-05-22 19:26:51||456||34||84||91||CC G+|
|Fraser Cain||847,440||Super 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 Cain||847,440||The 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 POST||2013-03-19 22:39:31||399||67||166||160||CC G+|

|Fraser Cain||847,440||The 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 02:59:31||420||54||40||84||CC G+|
|Peter Smalley (Merkabah)||13,015||#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 17:29:54||501||5||2||11||CC G+|
|Paul Christen||152||To 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 13:15:58||413||5||1||10||CC G+|

What a wild ride! Comet #ISON fizzled out, but its dust continues to trace an orbit around the sun!!! Sorry, skywatchers, there won't be any "comet of the century" to look out for. Just dust in the solar wind.

NASA's first campaign to commercialize spaceflight has been officially closed out.
This marks the space agency's transition to more ambitious spaceship-creation efforts that could send astronauts into orbit and perhaps back to the moon someday.
During a televised ceremony at the agency's Washington headquarters, NASA Administrator Charles Bolden said "We just finished taking the Olympic torch up to space last week, and getting it back down. So in a way, this is passing another torch."
The Commercial Orbital Transportation Services, or COTS, was a seven-year-long, $700 million-plus commercialization program that resulted in two new launch systems to replace the now-retired space shuttle fleet and transfer cargo to the International Space Station: SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon cargo capsule and Orbital Sciences Corp.'s Antares rocket and... more »
