Fraser Cain980,978Join Fraser Cain and a rotating crew of space journalists to talk about the biggest news in space and astronomy. This week's guest is Dr. Stephen Granade. He's a lot of research regarding docking on-orbit, how it's hard, and how people are working on sensors and systems to make it easier. He's also Science Track director for DragonCon!Weekly Space Hangout - April 10, 20152015-04-10 21:00:0054  
American Museum of Natural History379,533On December 1, we're “opening the doors” of our online classroom and inviting you to join us for a Google+ Hangout event: Our Earth’s Future—A Conversation about Climate Change.  As part of the curriculum in the American Museum of Natural History’s online course Our Earth’s Future, scientists will discuss lessons learned from Hurricane Sandy and the link between climate change and extreme weather events. This Hangout event will be hosted live from the Museum’s newest exhibition, Nature’s Fury: The Science of Natural Disasters, which investigates how nature’s forces shape our dynamic planet.  Moderated by Catherine Pomposi, doctoral candidate the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences at Columbia University, the panel includes Our Earth's Future course instructor Debra Tillinger, physics professor at Marymount Manhattan College, and Radley Horton, associate research scientist at the Center for Climate Systems Research at Columbia University.  Viewers are encouraged to participate. Submit questions and comments on the Hangout page before or during the event. Our Earth’s Future - A Conversation about Climate Change2014-12-02 01:00:0065

NASA Goddard164,118On 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 Goddard Albert Shih: RHESSI scientist at NASA Goddard Sabrina Savage: Hinode deputy project scientist at NASA Marshall Lucia Kleint: Bay Area Environmental Research Institute  Jeffrey Newmark: NASA HeadquartersNASA Hangout: All Eyes on the Sun2014-05-08 20:30:00660  
Google Science Fair3,059,702*What’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 19:00:00115  
American Museum of Natural History379,533Pterosaurs 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 19:30:0044

Science Bulletins at AMNH462,623Last September, sea ice in the Arctic Ocean shrank to its smallest extent on record. This frozen cover is also dramatically younger and thinner than it used to be. How does the satellite record reveal these changes? And what are the effects of sea ice loss both near and far?   Explore these issues and questions with experts on sea ice monitoring, polar science, and data visualization at a live Google Hangout on Air on Tuesday, April 9 from 4–5 PM EST, hosted by the American Museum of Natural History’s Science Bulletins program and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.   The Hangout will highlight a new data visualization, designed for informal education at museums and science centers, about the recent, radical trends in Arctic sea ice. The visualization’s datasets will also be made available for live programming on NOAA’s Science on a Sphere (SOS)® spherical display system. The panel will also address ways to interpret the visualization for museum and educational audiences.   The Hangout will feature: Dr. Ned Gardiner, data visualization specialist with the NOAA Climate Program Office Dr. Mark Tschudi, Research Associate at the Colorado Center for Astrodynamics Research at the University of Colorado–Boulder Dr. Karen Frey, Assistant Professor of Geography at Clark University Watch on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9mYdQ0CAuVY&feature=youtu.beScience Bulletins Google Hangout: A New Data Visualization on Arctic Sea Ice2013-04-09 22:00:0026

The Committee on the Status of Women in Astronomy recently conducted a survey among members of the American Astronomical Society (AAS) to evaluate the prevalence and harm perpetrated by acts of sexual harassment in their field.

What they found is equal parts appalling and—sadly—unsurprising.

"Of 426 participants (about six percent of the total society membership), 285 of whom identified as female, 82 percent had heard sexist remarks from peers in a workplace environment during the past five years, and 44 percent had heard such remarks from a supervisor. Fifty-seven percent said that they had been verbally harassed because of their gender, while nine percent said they had been physically harassed."
