|Fraser Cain||846,344||Super 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 post||2013-05-22 19:26:51||456||34||84||91||CC G+|
|Fraser Cain||846,344||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||846,344||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||165||160||CC G+|

|Fraser Cain||846,344||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)||12,986||#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||151||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+|

As always, I examined every member of the circle to ensure that they're active and sciency. Please share this circle... for science!Sadly, about 30 people were removed this time around. However, I've moved them to a special "Inactive" circle, which I'll look through every time I prepare to share the main Science Circle, and incorporate anyone back in who has become active again.I've also decided to only include personal profiles in the science circle, and removed all the brand pages. I have no problem with brand pages, I just found there was a lot of overlap. This circle is about people.I'm going to be curating a second Science Brands circle, which will contain all those brands, which I'll share separately, so if you have a science-related brand page, please let me know. If you want to be a member of the Super Science Circle, I have only three requirements:1. You're a personal profile, not a brand page.2. You have been fairly active on Google+ over the last month. 3. Some of your posts are scientific in nature.If you want to be in the circle, just reply down in the comments, or get my attention somehow.As always, I recommend you import this circle into a new, temporary circle.

We've got journalists, scientists, and space fans - even an astronaut.Unlike my science circle, these people aren't all active posters. So if you want lots of activity, import that one instead.As I mentioned before, make sure you import these people into a brand new circle. That way you can delete the whole circle if you want when I provide a replacement.Please let me know if there's anyone I've forgotten.Fraser Cain shared a circle with you.||2011-10-05 03:17:35||75||12||14||30||CC G+|

I think the middle of November, in New England, is not the best time of year to start flowering.

Because if you're going to link to the 'The Day The Earth Smiled' image of Saturn and the Earth (and a lot more) by Cassini, you may as well link to the 5MB version. See the CICLOPS team blog at http://ciclops.org/?js=1 and the press release at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/spaceimages/details.php?id=PIA17172 for more information.

How to colo(ur) the Universe, from the Chandra Public Outreach group. It's a tricksy thing to balance Scientific fidelity, Visual Wow, and MultiMedia MultiMedia-ness, and my hat goes off to +Joseph DePasquale and colleagues.

What does 'archive' mean to you? Dusty catacombs, dripping water, cobwebs, and crates full of relics uncovered by a Dr Jones?
How about stunning images of colliding galaxies, relativistic jets of materials being thrown out by Black Holes, or the massive bound objects in the Universe? To be honest, although the images are cool, it's just as important that the Chandra Data Archive provides access to the 'raw' data. This lets people try to replicate previous work (reproducible Science) or look for new discoveries.

Moonapalooza! at the CfA here in Cambridge, MA (Saturday, October 12, 7:00 PM):
As part of the "International Observe the Moon Night" celebration, we train our telescopes on our nearest celestial neighbor. We will gaze at the Moon, always a memorable event for first-time observers, and see it the way future explorers will out the windows of their spacecraft. We'll also hold a general-audience Moon Trivia contest for fun prizes as well as a drawing for an Orion XT4.5 Dobsonian reflecting telescope, open to kids ages 6-14.

Work by my colleague +Joseph DePasquale on visualizing the scientific output of the NASA Chandra X-ray Satellite gets some appreciation. I'm not sure he'll be showing this testimonial to his kids though.

Come work for the SAO/NASA Astrophysics Data System group and support the discovery, dissemination and reuse of scientific publications and data.
Perhaps you'd also be able to convince our web group to add metadata to our web pages so that Google+ can display something useful!

The monthly "Observatory Night" series here at the CfA starts this week (Thursday, September 19, 2013) with "10 Great Discoveries":
Forty years ago, the brainchild of journalism student Steve Walther, the first issue of Astronomy magazine, appeared on newsstands. He vowed it would be the most beautiful astronomy magazine in the world. Little did he know just how successful his magazine would be. Tonight, Editor-in-Chief David Eicher reveals 10 Great Discoveries featured in Astronomy, including where did Earth's oceans come from?

Today's random thought. Could you have a "Cast" button on #WorldWideTelescope or #Stellarium or ... and have the display sent to a Google Chromecast?
I'm thinking of walking around the CfA or other Astronomy department/public area and easily bring able to throw up info onto the flat panel TVs doted around the place.

What the title doesn't point out is that this is a free Webinar today (Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm EDT) on both how to access on-line resources to get/take Astonomical images, but how to make then look good.
