Pamela L. Gay87,040Join us to talk with Moon pioneers +Penn State Lunar Lion XPRIZE Team and +Earthrise Space Foundation  and find out how they're engaging students -- and heading to the Moon!OverviewA global team of scientists and engineers are all working toward constructing missions to land on, travel across, and send video back from the Moon. With this new Google Hangout on Air series, we will introduce you to the men and women behind each of these planned missions and bring you all the latest developments from the +Google Lunar XPRIZE .Google Lunar XPRIZE Team Hangout 005: Rockets and Students ENGAGE!2014-05-28 03:00:4824G+
NASA Goddard67,745On 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 20:30:00653G+
Google Science Fair1,905,274What’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 19:00:00117G+
American Museum of Natural History199,698Pterosaurs 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 19:30:0043G+

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+

This ancient ant may have used its spear-like mouth parts to impale prey. The 3D reconstruction is modeled from a CT scan of an amber-entombed Haidomyrmex scimitarus, estimated to be around 100 million years old.

If you're celebrating Independence Day today, spare a thought for one of the heroines of the American Revolution: Sybil Ludington (1761-1839). On the night of April 27, 1777 she rode 40 miles to alert colonial militia that the British army were burning Danbury, Connecticut, rallying forces to gather and prepare for further attacks. 

She was sixteen years old at the time.

Ludington covered twice the distance of Paul Revere's more celebrated nighttime ride—and she most likely did it riding sidesaddle. Her alarm organized the militia in time to halt the British advance into other colonial strongholds in New York.

Spritely Prominence

A thin solar prominence sprouted numerous streams of plasma, which were drawn back into the Sun before disappearing a day later (July 28–29, 2014).  

The prominence and its streams are controlled by magnetic forces associated with an active region beneath the prominence. These images were taken in extreme ultraviolet light.

The animation below represents a model an artistic reconstruction of giant asteroid impacts pummeling the young Earth during its first geologic eon, reshaping its surface over and over.

Scientists who built the model animation hypothesize that the barrage of regular impacts could have also helped create a crucible for cooking Earth's first forms of life.

Peering through the Layers

This collage of images shows an active region on the Sun taken at almost the same time in extreme ultraviolet light  (July 24, 2014 at about 17:56 UT).

The layers are arranged clockwise from the upper left by temperature of plasma being imaged. This arrangement also correlates with the distance above the Sun’s surface, going from lowest to highest. Different features of the active region appear quite differently in the four images; each one helps to provide scientists with more information about the Sun’s processes.

Watched a terrific documentary last night called "Meet the Fokkens," about identical twin septuagenarian artists/sex workers who are Amsterdam's oldest working prostitutes.

From the film's website: "Louise and Martine Fokkens are identical twins. For over fifty years they were working as prostitutes. They freed themselves from the control of their pimps, ran their own brothel, and set up the first informal trade union for prostitutes. They are familiar faces in Amsterdam's Red Light District, but soon they will bid their farewells. The Ladies Fokkens is a portrait of these remarkable women."

Spun and Confused

Magnetic forces played tug-o'-war with a long arch of plasma, known as a prominence, for days before finally allowing it to dissipate (July 10-16, 2014). This close-up view was captured in extreme ultraviolet light.

Note the size of planet Earth, shown to scale in the video's lower left corner, and compare it to the prominence's length.

+Maryn McKenna reports that the vials of smallpox found last week on July 1 had lots and lots of company.

"The six vials of smallpox virus found in an FDA cold-storage room on the National Institutes of Health campus July 1 and announced by the CDC last week had company. A lot of company: 321 other vials. Some of them contained other “select agents,” infectious pathogens considered serious enough — for the illness they create, or the lack of a vaccine to prevent or drugs to treat them — to be considered potential bioterror agents."

In 1928, a baby sperm whale trapped in Brooklyn's Gowanus Canal had a brief posthumous residency in the +American Museum of Natural History's Hall of Ocean Life. The Hall, which was still under construction at the time, was the only place in the museum large enough to accommodate the two-ton animal's remains. 

After hearing reports of a whale trapped in the canal, AMNH Associate Curator of Mammalogy George G. Goodwin seized the rare opportunity to study the animal's anatomy. He paid four ironworkers $50 to catch the whale and ready it for transport to the museum, where, for a few precious days, he raced to document as much of its anatomy as possible—before his supply of embalming fluid was exhausted.

Spots Galore

The Sun sported a whole slew of substantial sunspots over 11 days (July 1-10, 2014). This movie shows the Sun in filtered white light, speckled with more and larger sunspots than we have seen in quite some time. Sunspots are darker, cooler regions on the Sun created by intense magnetic fields poking through the surface.

The Sun has just passed its peak level of activity, but it will still be producing many more sunspots and solar storms during the rest of this solar cycle.

Sweeping Arches and Loops

Two active regions with intense magnetic fields produced towering arches and spiraling loops (June 29–July 1, 2014) as they rotated into view. Magnetic field lines are visible in extreme ultraviolet light, revealed by the charged particles that travel along them.

These active regions appear as dark sunspots when viewed in filtered light. Note the small blast emitted by the upper region, followed by more coiling loops as the plasma reorganizes itself.

Lead guitarists usually get to play the flashy solos while the bass player gets only to plod to the beat. But this seeming injustice could have been determined by the physiology of hearing. Research published today suggests that people’s perception of timing in music is more acute for lower-pitched notes.

Are predators more concerned with the quantity of their food, or with the quality? A recent study shows that nutritional value dictates how predatory ground beetles choose their prey.

An international team of scientists led by University of Exeter and Oxford researchers collected more than 500 ground beetles in Denmark. One group of beetles was allowed to select from food sources with varying amounts of fat and protein, while the other group was given a fixed diet, where their choices were limited. The beetles that could choose their food freely made adjustments to their intake of fat and protein. The success of their selection was evident when they produced more eggs than the group on the diet with limited choices.
