Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth.During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook.Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions.SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONSTo ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro.

Tessa Schlesinger21,767This is my inner core circle  - the people from whom I share frequently. Sometimes, if someone hasn't been posting for a while, I will put them into another circle. I divide my circles into:1. Inner core ; people whose posts I share more often than others.2. Engagers: people with whom I engage and visa versa.3. My science circle. Geeky info that I like to read.4. My temporary circle; when I try out new people.2014-08-30 16:22:3688534
Peter Vogel44,233Sharing a circle of terrific ICT educatorsHere in British Columbia we are about to head back to school. What better time to share this circle of people who share their expertise in Information and Communications Technology or Educational Technology if you prefer another label.I've been a Google+ user since day 1 and in fact I began using it, appropriately enough, while on a three-week stay at the birthplace of the World Wide Web, CERN, perhaps better known as the home of the Large Hadron Collider. I began building this circle of plussers while there. Now I must admit I haven't been good about culling dormant accounts of late so don't expect everyone in the circle to be a gem.Also, if you happen across this post and circle and wish to be included (on the basis outlined above) just send me a note.  2014-08-29 22:11:48451101

Richi Jennings62,224Sunday Circle Share of Awesome... ~ A big HELLO to all the new Plussers I met over the past few weeks -- and a few I reconnected with. In the main, these folks are engagers, not passive consumers, so do add them if you're looking for interesting conversations here on G+. Also, feel free to share this publicly. Spread the love! Missed the previous share? Go here: plus.google.com/+richijennings/posts/ReuAc2arj9PIf you're using the G+ mobile app, this may not work correctly, because circle sharing doesn't seem to be implemented right :-(#sharedcircles  #publicsharedcircle  #circleshare #sharedpubliccircle   #circlesharing   #circle  #hashtag  2014-08-11 12:40:42261111130

Tessa Schlesinger20,569This is the circle of people I follow. I am not in it (so I'm not promoting myself). I follow them because they are interesting, sincere, have good stuff. Some of them have been here with me from day one.  They don't always interact every day, but I think it really depends on what you're looking for on G+. If you want people to interact with you, well, nobody can interact with everybody who adds them. There just isn't enough time to do that. On the other hand, if you'd like to read someone because they present informative, interesting, entertaining stuff, then this circle is interesting. I think it would appeal to atheists, agnostics, people who love beauty, travel, occasional humor, who are visual, intellectual, thinkers, humanist, and/or liberal. :)2014-05-08 15:31:52186503

Never tried Taggalaxy? Give it a shot. It pulls in image content from Flickr and displays it on a rotatable sphere. You'll see why it has the "galaxy" label as you use it.

Possible discovery of dark matter

And from our own sun no less. A tentative discovery of axions, an elusive and long-sought particle. It will be difficult to verify this any time soon but the paper announcing this finding may prove to be a watershed development. A rather poignant item is that the lead author of the paper died the day after its publication.

Good example of the scam posts that appear on Twitter

Here's a good example of the junk Twitter users have to stomach, and that fortunately seldom, if ever, appears here on Google+. 

It starts with this nonsense tweet:

ugzg5370sgq14 8:23am via Twitter Web Client
The Prize Patrol chose you as today's Vancouver winner!!@PeterVogel Claim here @_Claim_Here

That leads to another spurious Twitter account with a link to the supposed prize. I don't mind clicking on these while on a Chromebook! And here's what you end up with:

Ultimately it is some sort of lottery scam. Forget the prizes and the $3500 figure. You'll get some sort of useless certificate for an auction. And the whole thing is tied to a PO Box with a Grand Central Station, NY, address.

107th anniversary of commercial radio service

Lots of interesting background information on Guglielmo Marconi here.

Today in History: First Transatlantic Commercial Radio Service Began
On October 17, 1907 — 107 years ago today — the first transatlantic radio service began on a commercial basis. At first, the radio transmissions were used to communicate personal and business communications (not radio broadcasting, as we think of it today); on this first day of operation, 10,000 words were exchanged between transmission stations in Nova Scotia and Clifden, Ireland. Guglielmo Marconi, the driving force behind this achievement, was an inventor who was greatly appreciated with national and global honors and scientific awards during his life.

Interestingly, Guglielmo Marconi was born into a privileged family — his father was a wealthy landowner and his mother was a member of Ireland’s Jameson family of distillers — and was educated privately by a neighbor and pioneer in the study of electromagnetism, Augusto Righi, at Righi’s lab. One of the subjects that Marconi studied with Righi was “Hertzian waves,” which had been discovered by Heinrich Rudolf Hertz and are now known as radio waves (although the cycles per second of such waves are measured in “hertz”). With the help of his butler and permission of his parents, Marconi used his home attic to build “wave generating” equipment and conduct experiments. He had the goal of using radio waves to create “wireless telegraphy” — transmitting telegraph messages (that required wires) through the air over long distances. While a number of researchers had been exploring such technology, no one had been able to develop a workable system that could be commercialized — until Marconi.

By the time he was just 20 years old, Marconi had created a system for sending and receiving radio waves over a distance of about 1.5 miles (2.4 kilometers). When he wrote a letter to the Italian Ministry of Post and Telegraphs explaining what he was able to do, he never received a response, but his letter was eventually dismissed by the departmental minister with an indication that Marconi should be sent to an insane asylum. 

Finding little interest for his work in Italy, Marconi traveled with his mother to England where his research was greeted with great interest by the Chief Electrical Engineer of the British Post Office. More successful demonstrations to government officials followed; then Marconi gave two lectures at Toynbee Hall and the Royal Institution that began to draw international attention to his work. 

Marconi soon found financial backing to continue his experiments and opportunities grew to demonstrate the practicality of radio wave communication at greater and greater distances. He took time to file patents and eventually became very wealthy from them. 

Marconi became convinced that he could transmit radio waves across the Atlantic Ocean, and began to build transmission stations on both sides of the Atlantic. By December 12, 1901, at age 27, Marconi transmitted the first transatlantic radio message from Poldhu, Cornwall, England to St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada — 2,200 miles (3,500 kilometers). In 1909, Marconi won/shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for his “wireless telegraphy” invention.

Extraterrestrial life: even more elusive than thought

Finding telltale evidence of extra-terrestrial life on extrasolar planets just became a lot more difficult according to researchers. 

The team termed their results “inconvenient, but unavoidable…It will be possible to obtain suggestive clues indicative of possible inhabitation, but ruling out alternative explanations of these clues will probably be impossible for the foreseeable future.”

Dropbox user accounts apparently hacked: report 2

There is strong evidence to believe that file storage service Dropbox has suffered a major security breach. Someone has leaked 400 accounts (user names and passwords) in the past half hour and I have looked at this list. The hacker claims to be ready to release an additional nearly seven million names and passwords. In the past few minutes Dropbox appears to have implemented additional security on those 400 published accounts, but not on others. My own two accounts show no additional security. The leaked accounts I've seen begin with the letter "b".

If you are a Dropbox user I suggest you immediately change your password and/or implement two-factor security.

Microsoft set to take on quantum computing

And it all hinges on an important discovery made in The Netherlands.

Microsoft is in a superposition to change the world

MIT's technology review just published this excellent article on the state of Microsoft's mission to build a quantum computer. This one is definitely worth your time. Check it out in full here;  
http://www.technologyreview.com/photoessay/531606/microsofts-quantum-mechanics/

In 2012, physicists in the Netherlands announced a discovery in particle physics that started chatter about a Nobel Prize. Inside a tiny rod of semiconductor crystal chilled cooler than outer space, they had caught the first glimpse of a strange particle called the Majorana fermion, finally confirming a prediction made in 1937. It was an advance seemingly unrelated to the challenges of selling office productivity software or competing with Amazon in cloud computing, but Craig Mundie, then heading Microsoft’s technology and research strategy, was delighted. The abstruse discovery—partly underwritten by Microsoft—was crucial to a project at the company aimed at making it possible to build immensely powerful computers that crunch data using quantum physics. “It was a pivotal moment,” says Mundie. “This research was guiding us toward a way of realizing one of these systems.”

...

Microsoft has yet to even build a qubit. But in the kind of paradox that can be expected in the realm of quantum physics, it may also be closer than anyone else to making quantum computers practical. The company is developing a new kind of qubit, known as a topological qubit, based largely on that 2012 discovery in the Netherlands. There’s good reason to believe this design will be immune from the flakiness plaguing existing qubits. It will be better suited to mass production, too. “What we’re doing is analogous to setting out to make the first transistor,” says Peter Lee, Microsoft’s head of research.

...

In the next year or so, physics labs supported by Microsoft will begin testing crucial pieces of its qubit design, following a blueprint developed by an outdoorsy math genius. If those tests work out, a corporation widely thought to be stuck in computing’s past may unlock its future.

Stranger still: a physicist at the fabled but faded Bell Labs might get there first.

Here's an example of the flexibility of Bitcoin

And why vendors are increasingly adding support for the cryptocurrency that Marc Andreessen recently called one of the most important developments in Internet technology since Netscape!

Real life example: How  #Bitcoin saved me time & money this morning. 

I just spent half an hour trying to buy a movie on iTunes..."The Rise and Rise of Bitcoin". I kept getting errors shuffling me between the US and Canadian store because my credit card is Canadian (even though the item is on the Canadian & American iTunes stores it was demanding a US credit card). 

What did I do in the end? 

I went straight to the film's promotional website, where I could order & pay with BITCOIN!

The order took a few seconds, and the total price was $2 less than iTunes. Wow...Bitcoin really is #awesome.

Arguably the most well-known of recent astronauts, Hadfield already has one bestseller under his belt. It's too bad we won't be seeing Canadian astronauts returning to space any time soon.

My new book comes out on Tuesday - you can pre-order at lowest cost via: www.chrishadfield.ca/books/ 

You can see some sample images from inside the book thanks to +The Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/10/chris-hadfield-photography-space-favorite-things_n_5953388.html___Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield shares some images from his new book
