Fraser Cain893,100SpaceShipOne is the spacecraft created by Scaled Composites to win the $10 million Ansari X-Prize in 2003. It was the first privately built spacecraft to reach 100 km in altitude, twice in two weeks, carrying the equivalent of 3 people. It's the prototype of the upcoming SpaceShipTwo, created for Virgin Galactic to carry paying passengers into space.Astronomy Cast 350: SpaceShipOne2014-06-25 23:00:0220G+

Fraser Cain893,100Who knows what mysteries lurk at the military's Area 51 complex in Nevada? Conspiracy theorists and UFO chasers think it's a big alien cover-up. But it's probably something more boring, like advanced military aircraft. Let's talk about what we know, and what we think we know about this infamous military base.Astronomy Cast Episode 346 - Area 512014-05-19 20:45:4424G+

Fraser Cain893,100Everything dies, including our technology. But when we’ve hurtled a few thousands pounds of robotic instrumentation to another planet, it gets a little difficult to shut it down and clean up. What do we do when a mission has reached the end of its useful life?Astronomy Cast 342: Sunsetting Spacecraft2014-04-07 20:48:0530G+

Fraser Cain893,100When the United States helped defeat Germany at the end of World War II, they acquired the German rocket scientist Wernher von Braun. He had already developed the German V2 rocket program, and went on to design all the major hardware of the US rocket program. This week, we talk about von Braun's life and accomplishments.Astronomy Cast 340: Wernher von Braun2014-03-31 23:51:4630G+

Fraser Cain893,100Yes, we actually landed on the Moon. No, aliens didn't crash land at Roswell. What is it about space exploration that leads to so many conspiracy theories? We'll try to get to the bottom of these conspiracy theories, poke holes in their ridiculous ideas and help you build your baloney detection kit.Astronomy Cast 339: Space Conspiracy Theories2014-03-24 19:48:4833G+

Fraser Cain893,100It's safe to say that the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus shook up the whole Universe. Well, our understanding of our place in the Universe. It was Copernicus who came up with the heliocentric model, placing the Sun at the center of the Solar System, with the Earth as just another planet.

Fraser Cain893,100Pop quiz. How did Einstein win his Nobel prize? Was it for relativity? Nope, Einstein won the Nobel Prize in 1921 for the discovery of the photoelectric effect; how electrons are emitted from atoms when they absorb photons of light. But what is it?

Fraser Cain893,100Around this time last year a space rock crashed into the Earth above Chelyabinsk, Russia. It brightened the skies for hundreds of kilometers, broke windows and injured many people. Let's look back at the event. What happened, and what did we learn?Astronomy Cast 334 - Chelyabinsk, One Year Later2014-02-08 00:33:5037G+
Fraser Cain893,100Just take a look at the surface of the Moon and you can see it experienced a savage beating in the past. Turns out, the whole Solar System is a cosmic shooting gallery, with stuff crashing into other stuff.

Fraser Cain893,100Out here in the Milky Way’s suburbs, stellar collisions are unheard of. But there are places in the galaxy where stars whiz past each other, and collisions can happen. When stars collide, it’s a catastrophic event, and the stellar wreckage is visible half a galaxy away.Astronomy Cast 332 - Stellar Collisions2014-02-03 20:44:2727G+

Fraser Cain893,100The Universe is filled with hot fusion, in the cores of stars. And scientists have even been able to replicate this stellar process in expensive experiments. But wouldn't it be amazing if you could produce energy from fusion without all that equipment, and high temperatures and pressures? Pons and Fleischmann announced exactly that back in 1989, but things didn't quite turn out as planned...Astronomy Cast 325: Cold Fusion2013-12-09 20:48:0039G+

Fraser Cain893,100Comets can spend billions of years out in the Oort Cloud, and then a few brief moments of terror orbiting the Sun. These are the sun grazers. Some survive their journey, and flare up to become the brightest comets in history.

Fraser Cain893,100I'd like to invite everyone to enjoy the Perseid Meteor Shower for 2013. This is one of the best meteor showers of the year because it's very active - with upwards of 60 meteors/hour - but also because you get nice warm summer weather in the Northern Hemisphere.http://www.universetoday.com/103826/the-2013-perseid-meteor-shower-an-observers-guide/The shower peaks on the morning of August 12, 2013, but you can see plenty of meteors for a few days before and after, as we pass through the tail of Comet Swift-Tuttle.Take some time right now to make plans with your friends and family to enjoy this wonderful meteor shower. Find a place nearby with dark skies so you can really appreciate the meteors against the backdrop of the Milky Way. Pack some comfy camp chairs, a few blankets and bring snacks and drinks. A pair of binoculars would be nice, but they won't help you see meteors - you just need your eyeballs.Here's a great tool that shows you where there's light pollution:http://www.jshine.net/astronomy/dark_sky/Find a spot that's at least green on the map if you can.I'll post more details to this event as we have more organized, but at the very least, click Yes to this event. Start planning your enjoyment of this once a year activity.Thanks to +Randy Halverson for the beautiful picture.Perseid Meteor Shower - 20132013-08-12 06:00:00431G+

Fraser Cain893,100We've got to catch up a week with Astronomy Cast, so we'll be recording two episodes of our podcast live. Episode 277: OrbitWhen an object is orbiting the Earth, it's really falling. The trick, described in the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, is how to throw yourself at the ground and miss. There are several different kinds of orbits, and they're good for different reasons. From suborbital jumps to geostationary orbit, time to learn everything there is to know about going around and around and around.Episode 278: Animals in SpaceWe always think about humans in space, but the cold hard reality is that animals have always been first in space. First to fly, first to orbit, and sadly, first to die. Let's learn about how our animal companions have been our trusty partners in space exploration, and let's recognize their noble sacrifices over decades of experiments.Astronomy Cast Double Recording, 277: Orbits, and 278: Animals in Space2012-10-29 20:00:00180G+

NASA1,427,070NASA Administrator Charles Bolden and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk will discuss the first contracted cargo resupply flight to the International Space Station during a Google+ Hangout from 1-1:30 p.m. EDT Friday, Oct. 5. The SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket and its Dragon cargo spacecraft are scheduled to lift off at 8:35 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 7 from at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Bolden and Musk will talk about the flight, which will be the first of 12 contracted for NASA by SpaceX to resupply the space station. The SpaceX flights under the Commercial Resupply Services contract will restore an American capability to deliver and return significant amounts of cargo, including science experiments, to the orbiting laboratory -- a feat not achievable since the retirement of the space shuttle. Followers on Twitter may ask a question in advance of or during the event using the hashtag #askNASA . On Google+, leave a comment in the thread on this event page with questions marked with #askNASA  on the morning of the event. To join the hangout, visit the NASA's Google+ page at 1 p.m. EDT on Friday, Oct. 5:  http://plus.google.com/+NASAThe Dragon will be filled with about 1,000 pounds of supplies. This includes critical materials to support the 166 investigations planned for the station's Expedition 33 crew, including 63 new investigations. The Dragon will return about 734 pounds of scientific materials, including results from human research, biotechnology, materials and educational experiments, as well as about 504 pounds of space station hardware. For information about the space station, research in low Earth orbit, NASA's commercial space programs and the future of American spaceflight, visit:  http://www.nasa.gov/explorationFor more information about SpaceX, visit: http://www.spacex.comDiscuss the First Contracted Cargo Resupply Flight to the Space Station with NASA & SpaceX2012-10-05 19:00:00601G+

Hubble Space Telescope2,808,653A new, improved portrait of Hubble’s deepest-ever view of the universe, called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF, looks far away and back in time to reveal faint galaxies at one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.  This is the culmination of 10 years of observing a patch of sky that contains thousands of far-flung galaxies. The full-color XDF image shows previously unseen galaxies as they looked in the early universe, billions of years ago.Astronomers continue studying this area of sky with Hubble. Extensive ongoing observing programs, led by Harry Teplitz and Richard Ellis at the California Institute of Technology, will allow astronomers to study the deep-field galaxies with Hubble to even greater depths in ultraviolet and infrared light prior to the launch of JWST. These new results will provide even more extraordinary views of this region of the sky and will be shared with the public in the coming months.                              Want to know more? You can participate in an online webinar and hear three key astronomers of the XDF observing team describe how they assembled the landmark observation. They will illustrate and explain what Hubble’s powerful new view tells us about the evolving universe. Viewers can send in questions for our panel of experts to discuss. The webinar will be broadcast at 1 p.m. Thursday Sept 27. Join us here for this Google Event, or watch and leave questions at the HubbleSite YouTube Channel. (http://www.youtube.com/hubblesitechannel). You can also ask your questions in advance here in comments, and we'll pass them on to our panel.The panelists will be:Garth Illingworth, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz.He is the principal investigator of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2009 (HUDF09) Project. Pascal Oesch, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz.He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project. Dan Magee, programmer/data analyst at the University of California, Santa Cruz.

Fraser Cain893,100The Theory of Evolution provides a rich explanation for why we see the diversity of life here on Earth. There are so many lines of evidence, from genetic drift to the fossil record. But how did life start? How did things go from a collection of raw materials to the building blocks of life, giving evolution and natural selection a way to take over? That first step, from non-life to life is called "abiogenesis", and it's one of the most important questions science can answer.#astronomycast-abiogenesisAstronomy Cast, Episode 272: Abiogenesis2012-09-17 21:00:0044G+

NASA1,427,070Fifty 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.To join the event, visit http://plus.google.com/+NASA at 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday. Ask your questions of the group in the comments below or using hashtag #askNASA :50 Years Later: NASA Discusses Using Innovation and Ingenuity to do Big Things2012-09-12 21:00:00652G+

Fraser Cain893,100After a one-week hiatus, we're back with another Virtual Star Party. Lots of good stuff in the night sky as we shift towards the autumn constellations and objects. +Mike Phillips captured Pluto for us a few months ago, and now he's going for another +Virtual Star Party first: Neptune. If everything goes well, we should be able to get a tiny blue disc in the hangout window.Virtual Star Party - Sep. 9, 2012 (Neptune Edition)2012-09-10 05:30:0095G+
Ronnie Bincer83,096The last discussion re. New Posting Strategies for Google Plus was very well received. Some folks wanted to Continue the Conversation a bit more, so we are putting up Round 2 of the discussion/debate and plan on addressing other related concerns.Main Focus for Part 2:How to Change our Circle Management and How to Stay Social while adapting to the new Notification changes rolled out last week on 8/22/12.The initial HOA (Part 1) Event & Video are here: http://goo.gl/vMkqLWhen we go live this time, again, the Live Video Feed will be visible as part of this Event Announcement... but will not show up until just before start time.     »» Continues below, please scroll down »»More folks will be in the filmstrip this time... please let us know you are "Going" and that you want in if possible right here in the Event area. If not invited into the show, please participate like last time in the comments as that helps us make it a Great Show overall...

Fraser Cain893,100Join us every Sunday night for another +Virtual Star Party, where we stream the view from several telescopes into a live Google+ Hangout on Air. We'll stream whatever's in the sky right now. We'll answer questions, take requests, and generally geek out about astronomy.What's on the agenda this week? - The +Moon is perfect so we'll probably have several views of it- The planets are too low on the horizon, so no luck there - somebody might be able to get +Neptune, though.- The summer constellations are fading, and now the fall constellations are coming up. We should be able to see both, including the Eagle Nebula, Swan Nebula, Great Globular Cluster in Hercules, Ring Nebula, the Andromeda Galaxy, and more.- If we're lucky, we'll also get a view from the other side of the planet, showcasing a live view of the +Sun and its current sunspots.(the image for this week's Event is the Eagle Nebula, captured by +Ahmet Kale, and a good example of the kind of stuff we'll see)You don't need any special technology to enjoy our star parties. Just join this event, and then you'll get a notification when we go live. Then you'll be able to ask us questions, request objects, and generally learn about astronomy and astrophotography as a hobby.See you on Sunday!Virtual Star Party - August 26, 20122012-08-27 05:30:00121G+
Ronnie Bincer83,096Google Plus is a Brave New World Now... Certain Tools (i.e. Circle Level Notifications) have been removed from our toolbox. We had a lively discussion on what and how to post now that things have changed.And don't be fooled, they have changed...Watch part 1 above and watch part 2 here: http://goo.gl/N07RN ..+Mark Traphagen & +Ronnie Bincer host the discussion...

Woodpecker died doing what he loved... pecking wood

I noticed this strange growth on the side of my big maple tree. Turns out, it's a dead woodpecker. I'm not sure if you can see, but he's literally hanging on by a single claw.

How this guy died? I have no idea, but it must have been pretty quiet, for him to still be hanging on the tree.

Going to Dragon*Con? You should attend the Star Party!

I'm headed to Dragon*Con this year, but I'm going to be arriving late Thursday night. Which makes me sad, because I'm going to miss the Atlanta Star Party - August 28, 2014

This is a great event that honours the memory of Jeff Medkeff, aka, the Blue Collar Scientist. Jeff died of cancer back in 2009, and was kind enough to name an asteroid after me. :-(

Tickets always sell out fast, so if you're going to Dragon*Con, here's a link for more info. +Pamela L. Gay, +Nicole Gugliucci and other spacey friends will be giving presentations.

More mystery berries

People had great suggestions on my last mystery berries, so here's another type that I don't recognize.

These were in a tree. They were very hard, like apple hard, and were all pointed up in on the branches.

Any ideas?

Can anyone identify these mystery berries?

I'm really familiar with all the edible berries here on Vancouver Island, but I ran into this berry bush on a walk today. It looked very raspberry like, but I'd never seen it before.

I don't think it was a blackberry bush, I'm familiar with all the different varieties we get here.

Berries were delicious, and so far... not poisonous. :-)

Grandmother Fish - An Evolution Book for Preschoolers

If you're a roleplaying gamer, you know +Jonathan Tweet. He's the guy who helped create Ars Magica and the 3rd Edition of Dungeons and Dragons. 

But now he's got a new project, and it sounds awesome. He's writing an evolution book for pre-schoolers called Grandmother Fish

It'll help kids understand how some of their physical features were evolved from other ancestors, like fish. Can you wiggle like a fish?

I love this idea. It makes evolution adorable.

At the time I'm writing this, Jonathan's Kickstarter is already 160% funded, so it's going to happen, but if you want to get on board, check it out.

SpaceShipOne is the spacecraft created by Scaled Composites to win the $10 million Ansari X-Prize in 2003. It was the first privately built spacecraft to reach 100 km in altitude, twice in two weeks, carrying the equivalent of 3 people. It's the prototype of the upcoming SpaceShipTwo, created for Virgin Galactic to carry paying passengers into space.

Stormy skies over Louisiana

I'm down in Louisiana and captured a bunch of quick photos of the stormy sky. I had to stop after 8 pictures because then the rain started.

I was hoping Google would #autoawesome  them into a sequence. Wish fulfilled.

Self Replicating Robot Challenge

As part of my new job at HeroX.com, I'm trying to figure out how this system will actually work. And the only way I know how to build software is to figure out what I need and then build the software that supports it.

So, I've decided to create a challenge for all the makers and robot builders out there. Let's have a robot make a duplicate of itself, and then those two robots work together and so on, and so on.

https://herox.com/selfreplicatingrobot

But I need your help. 
1. Help me figure out rules that make sense, so it's tough but realistic for someone to succeed and win the prize.

2. Pledge and help me create the prize. Ask yourself. What you be willing to pay to live in a world where a robot can build another robot out of raw materials? $5? $100?

3. Think of other challenges... more »

Oops

This bee picked the wrong flower to feed from and ended up getting caught in this spider's web. It tore the web up, but the spider won the fight and got it snared up enough to start feeding.

Amazingly, I only had my Nexus 4 to capture this scene, and it did a great job.

I’ve got a new job, and it’s pretty cool.

One of the most exciting things to happen in the field of private spaceflight is the Ansari XPrize. This was the $10 million prize organized by Peter Diamandis for the first private spacecraft to reach 100 km altitude, twice in two weeks, while carrying the equivalent of 3 passengers.

The prize was won in 2004, and helped boost the private space industry.

The XPrize Foundation has gone on to create a series of prizes in oil cleanup, lunar landers, low carbon emission vehicles, and more.

But the age of the internet, it makes sense that these kinds of incentive challenges could be crowdsourced and crowdfunded.

Imagine if a large enough group of people could come together, pool their resources, and issue a challenge that would inspire competitors to solve it.

And so, the XPrizehas... more »

For their final video in Moon May, the folks at +Kurzgesagt have released a new animation, this time about Neptune's moon Triton. It's a bizarre world that orbits backwards from the rest of the moons in the system, and might very well be a captured Kuiper belt object.

I love this series. :-)

Who knows what mysteries lurk at the military's Area 51 complex in Nevada? Conspiracy theorists and UFO chasers think it's a big alien cover-up. But it's probably something more boring, like advanced military aircraft. Let's talk about what we know, and what we think we know about this infamous military base.

The Heart of the Milky Way by +Cory Schmitz

You're looking at the very heart of the Milky Way as seen by Cory Schmitz from Karoo in Africa. Cory captured this in April, 2014, using a Canon 5D MkII with a 24-70mm lens. Here’s Cory’s Flickr feed, where you can see more of his amazing images: https://www.flickr.com/photos/schmitzcory/ and he’s @theastroshake on Twitter.

Make your own holograms

The techniques in this video don't create real holograms, but they make some really cool images and videos. You might want to play around with some of these techniques on your own.

Almost every historic American launch occurred at one place in Cape Canaveral: Launch Complex 39.  Good old LC39 was build for the Apollo spacecraft, and then modified for the Space Shuttle program. And now it's carrying on this tradition for upcoming SpaceX rockets. Let's explore the history of this instrumental launch facility.

When could we see a human mission to Titan?

Let's just say that it would be a very very difficult mission. Reaching Saturn takes about 5 years, and then 5 years back. You've got all that radiation and loss of bones and muscle from low gravity. Needless to say, it's going to be a long long time before humans ever venture away from the Earth.

Star trails from +Tanja Sund

Take a look at this wonderful star trails picture captured by +Tanja Sund in South Africa. This image was taken using a Canon 5D MkIII camera and a 14mm lens and contains 206 separate images stitched together.

The little hole in the wood and the "arms" stretched skyward was a nice touch.

You can follow Tanja here on Google+, of course, but also over on Flickr at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/astro-tanja/

Does Light Experience Time?

Sometimes our videos are simple and straightforward. And other times, they're total mindbending head scratchers.

This one is the latter. Enjoy.

What Are White Holes?

People are always asking me to talk about white holes. Until I get around to it, here's a great description from +SciShow and Reid Reimers. What do you think? Are white holes possible?

Sunspot Group AR2055 by David Strange

Gaze at this terrifying ball of plasma that's just a short 150 million km away. This is the sunspot group AR2055, on the Eastern Limb of the Sun. So... cool.

The Universe is Trying to Kill You

You might have heard us say on +Astronomy Cast that the Universe is trying to kill you.

Here's a fun interview with me and my good buddy +Philip Plait where we discuss all the different ways the Universe wants you dead.

This was part of the +CosmoQuest Hangoutathon.

My Dad's Spiral Staircase Up a Tree

I posted this a few years ago, but I thought people might get a kick out of it.

My father build this spiral staircase that goes up around a cedar tree on Hornby Island. Once you get to the top, you get a view of of the ocean and mountains. 

It's all I can do to keep my kids off the thing.

Where is the Center of the Universe?

Some people think they're the center of the Universe. Well, they're right. But then, you're the center of the Universe too.

Confused? Here's a video to help you understand it.

Spring Photo Walk

It's almost nice weather here on Vancouver Island, but the place is already getting really green. I did my regular walk through the forest and tried to capture this temperate rainforest.

Oh, and I spotted a garter snake. :-)

First Test Flight of the F9R

Stop what you're doing and watch this video of the F9R rocket taking off, rising to an altitude of 250 meters, and then landing again. Each time we see one of these tests, SpaceX is getting closer to the dream of a reusable spacecraft.

I love the hexacopter footage... where do I get one of these?
