Hubble Space Telescope3,148,464A new, improved portrait of Hubble’s deepest-ever view of the universe, called the eXtreme Deep Field, or XDF, looks far away and back in time to reveal faint galaxies at one ten-billionth the brightness of what the human eye can see.  This is the culmination of 10 years of observing a patch of sky that contains thousands of far-flung galaxies. The full-color XDF image shows previously unseen galaxies as they looked in the early universe, billions of years ago.Astronomers continue studying this area of sky with Hubble. Extensive ongoing observing programs, led by Harry Teplitz and Richard Ellis at the California Institute of Technology, will allow astronomers to study the deep-field galaxies with Hubble to even greater depths in ultraviolet and infrared light prior to the launch of JWST. These new results will provide even more extraordinary views of this region of the sky and will be shared with the public in the coming months.                              Want to know more? You can participate in an online webinar and hear three key astronomers of the XDF observing team describe how they assembled the landmark observation. They will illustrate and explain what Hubble’s powerful new view tells us about the evolving universe. Viewers can send in questions for our panel of experts to discuss. The webinar will be broadcast at 1 p.m. Thursday Sept 27. Join us here for this Google Event, or watch and leave questions at the HubbleSite YouTube Channel. (http://www.youtube.com/hubblesitechannel). You can also ask your questions in advance here in comments, and we'll pass them on to our panel.The panelists will be:Garth Illingworth, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz.He is the principal investigator of the Hubble Ultra Deep Field 2009 (HUDF09) Project. Pascal Oesch, astronomer at the University of California, Santa Cruz.He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project. Dan Magee, programmer/data analyst at the University of California, Santa Cruz. He is a co-investigator with the HUDF09 Project.There's some more info here: http://hudf09.ucolick.org/xdf.html #xdf  Meet the Hubble eXtreme Deep Field Observing Team2012-09-27 19:00:00434G+

Chris Robinson24,784General Science Circle- Final UpdateLast August I started this General Science Database (http://goo.gl/tp06X), which could be uploaded into Google+ using the import contacts feature. Over the last year, the database has morphed into a shared circle and more recently into +Science on Google+: A Public Database. Due to the increasing overlap with the +Science on Google+: A Public Database, this will be the last time that I will be updating and sharing this circle.If you are a scientist, science teacher, or science writer, please feel free to add your profile/page to the +Science on Google+: A Public Database by filling out this form (http://goo.gl/yEg7M) and circling +Science on Google+: A Public Database. 2012-07-25 14:47:31300101339CC G+

Very sad, sad pictures.

How much does a disaster costs? Airlines flew over eastern Ukraine because of the costs (lower fees for flying in the airspace, fuel costs, etc.). Risks arising from the armed conflict in a given zone was considered acceptable until Malaysian Airlines machine was downed (after that, airlines began to avoid this region). Malaysian airlines have had a lot of bad luck and here are the effects. They lose approximately. 2,16mln USD PER DAY. According to the Gartner statistics, only 2 companies out of 5 survive disaster, and another 2 are closing down their operations over the next two years. Malaysian airlines and their PR staff situation is not to be envied. In addition, passengers publish photos of empty planes. Surely soon we'll find out, what will be the final of this story.___Very sad, sad pictures.

Good article. I have an impression, that this time we may wake up too late. Only because it affects Africa, not wealthy Shanghai or Hong Kong like it was with SARS.

Ebola is getting out of control in Africa. As David Quammen wrote in “Spillover,” the book about human epidemics, “Advisory: If your husband catches an Ebola virus, give him food and water and love and maybe prayers but keep your distance, wait patiently, hope for the best—and, if he dies, don’t clean out his bowels by hand. Better to step back, blow a kiss, and burn the hut.”

The story of my city - it's last 90 years. It's long. Plenty of pictures, films and information. For those interested in history and politics.  It is also very educational.. Available in English, German & Polish. Definitely worth your time. I think it may help you understand Poland more. Story of Warsaw, resembles the story of Ukraine and every other oppressed city in the world. Resemblance is striking. See for yourself.

Beautiful. Love is transcendental.

In the digital arena we hear the word 'social connection' quite often mentioned. I think it's important that we don't forget the original sense of the word and loose track of who we actually are. In true connections 'meaning' and 'purpose' arise to remind us what life is all about.

All nicely illustrated in this heart warming video. ___Beautiful. Love is transcendental.

I guess it means for EVERYBODY: "The two researchers say there’s no easy fix: The kind of compromise they’re demonstrating is nearly impossible to counter without banning the sharing of USB devices or filling your port with superglue."___We should treat USB devices like hypodermic needles.

Share the news and be safe.

His Purple Awesomness #prince  

Prince gives awesome performance with two bands - which is rare for a TV guest. The host of the show is not the best I've seen, but Prince is witty as always:
"Why don't you have a cell phone?"
"Everybody I know Has one."

Excellent post and pictures by +Sebastian Trzcinski-Clément from his journey to Vietnam.

Caodaism in blue, red, yellow, and white

What do Lenin, Victor Hugo (the well-known French writer), Churchill, Joan of Arc, Sun Yat-sen (the Chinese revolutionary leader), Jesus, Louis Pasteur (the French chemist who invented vaccination) and Muhammad (yep, the Muslim prophet) have in common? Haha, tough question, right? Well, they’re all spiritual guides honoured by Caodaism.

I had never heard of Caodaism either, don’t worry. Can you guess what it is? Well, since the suffix is “ism”, you could already tell that it’s some kind of philosophy or doctrine. It’s actually a religion, with a tint of nationalism, born less than a hundred years ago in the farthest reaches of southern Vietnam, a few kilometres from the border with Cambodia. About 5 million worshipers practice that religion today. To put things in context, Judaism and Mormonism have about 13 million members each. 5 million, that’s also just about the same number of Baha’is in the world. The Baha’i faith, born in 19th-century Persia and sometimes considered an apostasy of Islam (with the repressive consequences it implies), has nothing to do with Caodaism except that it’s also a syncretic religion (purists would debate that point though), which means that it tries to blend multiple existing religions together or acknowledges prophets from other mainstream religions – with Caodaism believing in addition that the will of the supreme deity has been corrupted by other religions (which is just about what those other religions say of other previous ones!). It makes me smile to think that, by definition, all but one religion are in the wrong – if not even all of them.

I wouldn’t necessarily have endured three hours of scooter ride in the blazing heat of if the guide books had not mentioned that the Caodaist “great temple” in the town of Tay Ninh was worth visiting. I spent the first hour of that ride learning how to flow in the dense traffic, more intense than in Thailand or Indonesia. And then it was all about bearing the heat; I understood too late why some Vietnamese riders dress with long sleeve shirts on top of their regular clothes, so as to protect their arms from grilling. A couple of days later, I would get rid of any pride I had left: I shamelessly used (worn – I had nothing else available then) boxer shorts and (dirty) T-shirts to cover my forearms and neck. Worst of it all on my journey to the temple, I didn’t even find it on time for the noon mass.

I had wrongly assumed the town would be small (on a map, everything seems easy and small), the cathedral visible from a distance (or be in the centre of the town), or that locals would be helpful. It turns out that the town extended over several kilometres, the cathedral wasn’t particularly big and was mostly hidden from street view, and the locals – just as almost everywhere else in Vietnam – understood no word of English while my Vietnamese was clearly appalling especially with my stress levels mounting as I could see I’d be late and “why are you pointing left and this other guy is indicating the opposite direction and could you stop trying to sell me your fruits I’m just trying to find my way thank you please can you just listen to me I’m trying to show you where I’m trying to go” (as I was drawing a triangular shape in the air when the temple wasn’t triangular at all). Arg.

There’s one thing I’d like to understand though, and maybe you can help me in that quest: can the person who stole all the road signs please stand up? There are no freaking useful road signs in Vietnam! For once that Vietnamese is actually readable for a Westerner (unlike Thai or Chinese) since it’s using the Latin alphabet (thanks to a Frenchman, but that’s another story)... Without Google Maps and the phone’s GPS, I’d probably have ended up in, I don’t know, Jordan… although that’s another country where I vividly remember stopping at an intersection in the middle of a desert road and trying to figure out the correct turn (my ability to read Arabic and the GPS confirmation eventually helped then).

Back to my temple. Mass takes place there every six hours every single day of the year. It had obviously started by the time I found the temple but, in my (relative) misery, mass would last more than twice longer than the expected thirty minutes, enough for me to take many pictures, long after the agency-ferried tourists had gone (so it was after all worth the trouble to get there by my own means so I could enjoy things at my own pace… if I only found those landmarks).

Men were sitting separately from women, the latter not allowed to reach the higher priesthood positions – so much for equality in theory advocated by that religion (faring no better than any other for that matter). Simple worshippers were clad in white, while priests on the other hand were dressed in coloured robes to reflect their spiritual allegiance: blue for Taoism and its quest for plenitude, yellow for Buddhism and its answers to the existence and future of mankind, and red for Confucianism for its ethical precepts – and not red for Catholicism as can be often mistakenly written, although it is true that the temple is reminiscent of the architecture of a Catholic cathedral; the organisational structure with a pope-like head and bishops further increase the resemblance, which is less surprising when one knows that 30% of Vietnamese are Catholics.

Despite Lenin and Sun Yat-sen being in the Caodaist pantheon, the Vietnamese government repressed religions after the end of the Vietnam war in 1975, an unsurprising move for a Communist regime by definition viscerally opposed to religions (hadn’t Karl Marx said “religion is the opium of the people” that would give them false hope and thus maintain inequality?) – before easing up before the turn of the millennium.

On a more humourous note (to me at least), I’ll leave it up to you to consider whether Caodaism, like other religions, is rooted in myth and gullibility: in 1919, the founder received a “communication” from what he said was the supreme deity during a table-turning session… wait, is my table also shaking now?!___Excellent post and pictures by +Sebastian Trzcinski-Clément from his journey to Vietnam.
