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+

We took all of the individuals and pages that contributed to this discussion and put them into this shared circle.

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+

Spasmodic Active Region

An active region that was rotating out of view displayed a dazzling variety of dozens of spurts and eruptions in about 2.5 days (Apr. 19-21, 2014).

The frames, taken in extreme ultraviolet light, show ionized Helium not far above the Sun’s surface. All of the activity near this region was caused by intense magnetic forces in a powerful struggling with each other.

Our scientific advisor for Bio Bulletins, Mary Blair, came to us from the Center for Biodiversity and Conservation, where she currently acts as the Assistant Director for Research and Strategic Planning and leads their Enhancing Diversity in Conservation Science Initiative.

Her own line of research includes conservation biology of primates and other mammals. This spring, she traveled to Vietnam to survey slow loris populations—and she's blogging about it for the +American Museum of Natural History.  

Read her dispatches from the field here: http://www.amnh.org/explore/news-blogs/(tag)/6871

Official NOAA Climate Prediction Center estimates peg the odds of El Niño’s return at 50 percent, but many climate scientists think that is a lowball estimate. And there are several indications that if it materializes, this year’s El Niño could be massive, a lot like the 1997-98 event that was the strongest on record.

When someone is blind from birth, what happens in their brain's visual cortex? Scientists have long thought that this portion of the brain was repurposed, processing the input from a sense other than sight. But technology designed to help blind people "see" using soundscapes tells a different story. Brain scans in blind individuals using this system reveal vision-related brain activity similar to that in sighted people.

Flare and Surging Plasma

Though not a major event, a medium sized (M-class) eruption on the Sun's surface this week certainly delivered an attractive visual display. 

The solar flare burst from an active region near the edge of the Sun (Mar. 31, 2014). It also sent some bright plasma out in a narrow strand, although most of it seemed to fall back into the Sun.

The images were taken in extreme ultraviolet light of ionized helium heated to 60,000 degrees.

Graceful Turbulence

Powerful magnetic forces above an active region on the Sun twisted and pulled at a blob of plasma until it lost its connections and blew out into space (Mar. 26, 2014).

The resultant swirling presented its own kind of graceful, almost ballet-like bends and sweeps. To offer some kind of size perspective; that blob, before it broke away, was easily larger than several Earths.

The event was observed in extreme ultraviolet light over about 5.5 hours beginning at 7:00 UT.
