NASA Goddard106,309On March 29, 2014, an X-class flare burst off the right side of the sun . . . and NASA was watching.Coordinating their observations, five NASA observatories and one ground-based telescope were able to see things in the flare they'd never seen before.  Numerous other NASA spacecraft provided additional data about what was happening on the sun during the event and what the effects were at Earth. Join us at 2:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday, May 8, 2014, as researchers describe how multiple missions worked together to explore the sun's surface and atmosphere, layer by layer, providing unprecedented images of the onset of a solar flare.  In addition to the colorful pictures of the sun that NASA will share, participants will explain how such research can help scientists better understand what sets off these large explosions on the sun. Perhaps, someday scientists may be able to predict their onset, forewarning of the radio blackouts they can cause near Earth – blackouts that can interfere with military, airplane and ship communications.Participants include: Adrian Daw: IRIS project scientist at NASA GoddardAlbert Shih: RHESSI scientist at NASA GoddardSabrina Savage: Hinode deputy project scientist at NASA MarshallLucia Kleint: Bay Area Environmental Research Institute Jeffrey Newmark: NASA HeadquartersNASA Hangout: All Eyes on the Sun2014-05-08 20:30:00652 
Google Science Fair2,077,925What’s the science behind engineering? What does it take to design and build a drone, or a musical instrument? How can you model the flames of something that’s caught fire? Can you copy the mechanics of a fruitfly in flight?Chris Rogers is a mechanical engineer extraordinaire. He knows everything from telerobotics (such as drones) to the engineering of musical instruments (with Steinway) to the flight mechanics of the fruit fly. He helped LEGO to develop ROBOLAB, a program that has operated in 50,000 schools around the world. He has lit a couch on fire, flown in NASA's 0-g “vomit comet,” sent robots under water, and has LEGO and Arduino computers controlling  his house. And he’s currently the co-director of the Tufts University Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO), which helps kids get interested in engineering, science and math.Come hear Chris talk about mechanical engineering, LEGO, drones, musical instruments, fruit flies, and a lot more! Post your questions for Chris using the Q&A app on the Google+ event page.This session will be produced in collaboration with Google Connected Classroom. If you're an educator with a High School classroom who wants to actually join the Hangout, sign up on the Connected Classrooms form at http://goo.gl/z9gHfV #VirtualFieldTrips Field Trip Friday, May 2, 10AM PT / 1PM ET / 1700 GMTThe Science of Engineering with Chris Rogers: A Google Science Fair 2014 Hangout On Air2014-05-02 19:00:00117 
American Museum of Natural History222,137Pterosaurs were flying reptiles that lived during the age of dinosaurs— and the first vertebrates to fly under their own power. Some were gigantic, while others could fit in the palm of your hand. Unlike dinosaurs, these animals left no descendants so everything we know about them comes from fossils. Find out how they lived, how they flew, and why their fossils are so hard to find. See the evidence for yourself! In this Virtual Field Trip from the American Museum of Natural History, paleontologist Mark Norell will show you some of his most exciting pterosaur fossil finds, as well as life-size reconstructions of these amazing creatures. At the end of the class, there will be an opportunity for students to ask questions.  Sign up here: goo.gl/PVJG5VMuseum Curator Mark Norell Discusses Rare Pterosaur Fossils - Live!2014-05-01 19:30:0043

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 20:14:53415304682

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 19:26:51456348088
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 22:39:3139967163160

Sixteen bowling balls
Swinging from a frame
They move in synch
Then out of synch
Then back in synch again. 

This wonderful video was shared on Facebook by Maria Ikenberry, and her excellent explanation of the pendulum wave is pasted below. 

The "ooh"s and "aaah"s of the spectators are the best part—well, almost. The best part is truly the beauty of physics in action.

From the original Facebook post:

** What am I seeing? How does this work? ** 
The length of time it takes a ball to swing back and forth one time to return to its starting position is dependent on the length of the pendulum, not the mass of the ball. A longer pendulum will take longer to complete one cycle than a shorter pendulum. The lengths of the pendula in this demonstration are all different and were calculated so that in about 2:40, the balls allretu... more »

Rescued fox pup is "too friendly" to survive in the wild. 

A fallen tree prevented Mark Hemmington, National Fox Welfare Society founder, from integrating an orphaned fox pup into a pen with other abandoned pups. The pup bonded with Hemmington, and later attempts to integrate her into the wild did not succeed. She remains a permanent resident of the NFWS.

Lots of Spots

Over the past month the Sun has produced quite a few sunspot groups, with some of them being significantly large (Aug. 25 - Sept. 25, 2014). Most solar storms are produced by sunspots. Sunspots are darker, cooler areas of the Sun generated by intense magnetic fields below the Sun’s surface. Since we are near the period of solar maximum, this frequency of sunspots is not surprising. Notice how some develop and others fade away over a period of days in most cases, although sunspots can last up to several months.

Extensive Arch

A giant arch of plasma rose up and then stretched back behind the Sun (Sept, 17-19, 2014). The arch emerged from a magnetically intense active region so it is likely connecting to another active region over the Sun’s horizon. We rarely see material extend this distance. Images are shown in extreme UV light.

One of the most amazing touchable fossils I've ever seen—or felt—is currently on display in the +American Museum of Natural History exhibit, "Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs." And it's not even a pterosaur; it's a fish.

Vinctifer comptoni lived about 110 million years ago during the early Cretaceous, and they are the most common fossil fish found in Brazil's Romualdo Formation today. At the same location, paleontologists have also discovered pterosaurs whose skulls resemble those of modern birds that skim-feed—flying low over bodies of water to scoop up fish close to the surface. Scientists suspect that V. comptoni could have been a food source for these skim-feeding pterosaurs.

The fossil is mounted near an open diorama re-creating a Cretaceous scene of pterosaurs swooping down over a South American lagoon to catch a fish. The remains of this ancient animal are so well-preserved that you can feel the individual scales. It's quite wonderful.

The VIRTIS team have created temperature maps of the entire sunlit surface of comet 67P, with temperatures as high as 230 K recorded. 

The VIRTIS instrument on the Rosetta spacecraft is used to study the comet 67P's nucleus and its environment. Maps have been produced showing how the temperature of comet 67P varies across regions and with local time. Some examples were shown this week at the 2014 European Planetary Science Congress, Portugal.

This striking false-color image of Iceland's Holuhraun lava field was created by combining shortwave infrared, near infrared, and green light.

On September 6, 2014, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 captured this view of the ongoing eruption in Iceland between the Bardarbunga and Askja volcanoes. 

The false-color images combine shortwave infrared, near infrared, and green light (OLI bands 6-5-3). Ice and the plume of steam and sulfur dioxide appear cyan and bright blue, while liquid water is navy blue. Bare or rocky ground appears in shades of green-brown in this band combination. Fresh lava is bright orange and red.

Science Bulletins wants YOUR feedback on our data visualizations!

Watch "El Niño to La Niña", then follow the links in the video to answer a brief survey. Your response will help us make even better videos in the future. 

Science Bulletins: Earth Viz—El Niño to La Niña

Climate scientists anticipate that El Niño, the warm phase of a cyclical global climate pattern, will emerge during the next few months.

El Niño and its cooler counterpart La Niña are two opposite phases of ENSO—the El Niño/Southern Oscillation cycle. As the cycle shifts from La Niña to El Niño and back again, changes in ocean temperatures and wind patterns can dramatically affect weather. In 2010, El Niño shifted quickly to one of the most powerful La Niñas in fifty years, resulting in dramatic flooding in Australia and other extreme weather in 2010–2011.

TODAY! Join Science Bulletins producers, NOAA scientists, and the director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography CO2 Program to explore our new data visualization on the Keeling Curve.

Hang out with us—and leading atmospheric scientists—to learn more about the principal greenhouse gas. On September 9, 2014, from 3:30 – 4:15 p.m. E.D.T., AMNH Science Bulletins will host a Google+ Hangout about the past, present, and future of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

The event will highlight a new AMNH data visualization, Keeling's Curve: The Story of CO2: http://www.amnh.org/explore/science-bulletins/(watch)/earth/visualizations/keeling-s-curve-the-story-of-co2

Participate to meet:

Pieter Tans, Senior Scientist at NOAA Earth System Research Laboratory and lead, Carbon Cycle Greenhouse Gases Group
Ralph Keeling, program director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography CO2 Program and son of Charles Keeling
Andy Jacobson, University of Colorado research scientist and NOAA lead for CarbonTracker at ESRL
AMNH Science Bulletins Editorial Producer Laura Allen will moderate.

See CO2’s patterns around the globe, learn how its rise was discovered, and hear about the significance of passing an atmospheric CO2 concentration of 400 parts per million. Ask your questions here on the event page or during the broadcast!

The data visualization is designed for informal education at museums and science centers. Some of its datasets have also been formatted for NOAA’s Science on a Sphere (SOS)® spherical display system at http://sos.noaa.gov/Datasets/dataset.php?id=479.
The Hangout will also offer strategies for interpreting the visualization for educational audiences.

This visualization and professional development training is supported by NOAA.___TODAY! Join Science Bulletins producers, NOAA scientists, and the director of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography CO2 Program to explore our new data visualization on the Keeling Curve.

This wonderful video was shared on Facebook by Maria Ikenberry, and her excellent explanation of the pendulum wave is pasted below. 

The "ooh"s and "aaah"s of the spectators are the best part—well, almost. The best part is truly the beauty of physics in action.

From the original Facebook post:

** What am I seeing? How does this work? ** 
The length of time it takes a ball to swing back and forth one time to return to its starting position is dependent on the length of the pendulum, not the mass of the ball. A longer pendulum will take longer to complete one cycle than a shorter pendulum.

From the original Facebook post:

** What am I seeing? How does this work? ** 
The length of time it takes a ball to swing back and forth one time to return to its starting position is dependent on the length of the pendulum, not the mass of the ball. A longer pendulum will take longer to complete one cycle than a shorter pendulum. The lengths of the pendula in this demonstration are all different and were calculated so that in about 2:40, the balls all return to the same position at the same time – in that 2:40, the longest pendulum (in front) will oscillate (or go back and forth) 50 times, the next will oscillate 51 times, and on to the last of the 16 pendula which will oscillate 65 times. Try counting how many times the ball in front swings back and forth in the time it takes the balls to line up again, and then count how many times the ball in back swings back and forth in the same time (though it's much harder to keep your eye on the ball in back!).

** Why are they not perfect at the end? ** 
This large frame is built from wood and is outdoors, which means it expands, contracts, and flexes. Because the position of the frame changes, the cycle lengths are not perfectly aligned. Over time, the minor differences become more pronounced.

** Where is this? ** 
This was built on private property in the mountains of North Carolina (United States), near Burnsville. It is not open to the public.

** Can I get a copy of this video to use in my classroom? ** 
I have uploaded a higher-quality video to YouTube: Pendulum Wave Demonstration
You are encouraged to use this video for educational purposes! If you are sharing online, please provide a link back to this video or the YouTube video. This video is licensed CC BY-SA: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/

** How can I make my own? Where can I learn more? ** 
Here are some links to information about the physics behind this demonstration. There are some small scale versions of this demonstration that can be purchased commercially as well, but if you want a 20’ version like this, you’ll have to make your own! I didn't make this and I don’t have plans for it, but work through the physics at these links and design your own – you’ll learn a lot about physics, math, and construction!

How big is a 65-ton dinosaur? Look at the size of these #Dreadnoughtus vertebrae. Just look at them.


Dreadnoughtus Today is so exciting for a ton of palaeontologists, students, researchers, and dinosaur fans. The video gives a bit of history to where this titanosaur was discovered back in 2005. Almost ten years later and it’s finally gone public.

These fossils spent a lot of time being excavated out of the matrix they were found in; around 4 years with multiple labs working tirelessly to clean and repair them. With such a huge specimen, a lot of man power was required.

You can read the article about Dreadnoughtus here on Drexel University’s website: http://drexel.edu/now/archive/2014/September/Dreadnoughtus-Dinosaur/
