Each segment will be released after the event as a stand-alone YouTube video on the AstrosphereVids channel, thus creating a library of content while raising money for future programs. Planning for this Hangout-a-thon was triggered by the cuts created by sequestration, and by the current White House plans to transition education out of NASA. If the President's current budget is passed, all the funding programs CosmoQuest relies on for will be zeroed (see http://bit.ly/11m5XYg) and the project will be defunded. Rather than accept that fate, CosmoQuest is working to raise the funds needed to keep their programs going, to build new citizen science programs for researchers that don't otherwise have the mThe CosmoQuest 24 Hour Hangout-A-Thon - Main Event Page2013-06-15 18:00:00320G+

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 20:14:53415304782CC G+

Then import my Super Science Circle and be amazed at the awesomeness.PLEASE RESHARE THIS CIRCLE... FOR SCIENCE!Every single person in this circle is active on Google+ and regularly contributes high quality posts about science. You've got my personal guarantee.As always, I recommend you import this group into a temporary circle and look for people who match your interests. Then pull them over into more permanent locations in your circles. Or just wait for me to give you an update next month.If you want to be included in this circle, just make a post in the comments and I'll check out your profile.I'm looking for people who:1. Are active on Google+ (but not too active)2. Regularly post about science3. Provide context and additional information, and not just bare links or annoying memes.2013-07-16 18:35:56415255986CC G+

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 19:26:51456348290CC G+
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 22:39:3139967163160CC G+

Fraser Cain694,882The Final Super Science CircleWell, this is it, this is going to be the last posting of the Super Science Circle. Why? Communities, that's why. In case you didn't know, I've been maintaining my Super Science Circle from the very beginning of Google+. As soon as the feature to share circles was enabled, I was happy to share those circles around into Google. I did this because it was very difficult for people with related interests (science) to be able to find each other. I wanted new G+ users to realize this place isn't a ghost town; there are vibrant groups of people actively discussing scientific topics.But it was a hack. Each month took me almost an entire day to curate down the list of people, remove the inactive, and incorporate newly active people who often posted about science. And it was always imperfect. Some people got a massive boost in followers and engagement, while other, equally deserving people were left out.It was inelegant, inefficient and arbitrary.But now you can do this all on your own. You can go into any Community that matches your interest and instantly discover thousands of people who share your enthusiasm for a topic - just joining a Community will bring a trickle of posts about topics that interest you back into your stream. Keep your participation in the Community, or circle the most interesting people and harvest them back into your own stream.In the coming months, I'll be suggesting Communities you should join, instead of people you should circle. Thanks to everyone for using the shared circles and helping science get such a firm foothold here on Google+. Thanks to all the past and present members of the Super Science Circle for sharing such wonderful stuff.Science!2013-01-17 02:59:31420544084CC G+
Peter Smalley (Merkabah)10,068#sharedpubliccircles   #science  It's been a while since I shared a circle. Let's fix that, shall we? Here is my Circle of Science. Here you will find people who are practicing scientists, science writers, and science enthusiasts - and sometimes all three at once. There are biologists, chemists, physicists, microbiologists, food safety scientists, mathematicians, neurologists, astronomers and many other disciplines represented here. But regardless of their specialties they are intelligent, interested, and interesting.I won't call this a curated circle per se, but I can personally speak to quality of many of these individuals. Many of them are true gems.FOR SCIENCE!2012-11-26 17:29:545015211CC G+

Paul Christen0To the person that originally shared this circle with me (I forgot who...)Thank you.I am getting really tired of the glorification of stupid and the vilification of intelligence. I am afraid that its a systemic problem and frankly, I see no end in sight. Its similar to American politics in many ways."Well sure, professional athletes shouldn't rape women, but the dood can throw a football!" "Well, yeah, he ran a dog fighting ring, but let him play football and be a role model to  children anyway."We had a President, that was re-elected, that on any scale was a buffoon at best.The list goes on, and lets not forget the other side  of the  proverbial  coin, how often have we heard politicians talk about the "elite smart people"?Watch an episode or two of "Big Bang Theory". REALLY funny show, I refuse to watch it. I saw two episodes and both portrayed intelligence as negative.I heard an adult say (and I shit you not) "Kids don't need to learn what the mathematical median is, its useless knowledge, average is good enough." I tried to explain how it differs from average and how knowing the average and the median can help get a better view of the data (no point in going too deep) and got "nope, not needed".Whatever, I'm ranting and off the rails here.Do what you need to do to keep YOUR intelligence up and those around you, for the love  of Xenu, fight the good fight. Following this  circle  might help.2012-11-07 13:15:584135110CC G+

You've seen the Apollo 11 Saturn V launch. But probably not at 500 frames/sec, with commentary.

This is fabulous, and not just because there's fire and steam and hellishly incomprehensible forces. Although that helps. It's also, you know, science. And history.

When writers speak of a "memory hole" regarding the effects of policies like right to be forgotten, they are not engaging in metaphor. The policies are the literal translation into software of the hole down which Winston Smith tosses embarrassments to the party, complete with the dichotomy of presumed destruction and actual preservation.

All of this article is good, but the best part is the latter half or so, which goes into considerable detail about the potential upcoming Europa mission. Europa Clipper (or whatever variant is selected) is the most interesting upcoming mission I've seen. Jupiter is lovely, and Europa is fascinating -- an ice crust of unknown thickness with a probable liquid-water ocean beneath, a bit like an enormous space egg orbiting a gas giant. And it might spit water into its sky, similar to Saturn's moon Enceladus. That's a moon I want to see in much more detail. Just for the pictures of a looming fractured ice world with gorgeous Jupiter in the background -- I'm practically weak in the knees just thinking about it.

Even better, in my view: I sat in on some very, very early discussion about the Europa mission, which convinced me that (at least at that time) they had exactly the right idea... more »

My new best friend[1] "Weird Al" Yankovic is a marketing genius. Not mentioned in this article is an even more genius move on his part: he got those eight videos funded in a quid pro quo arrangement with the sites on which they're featured. The sites got limited-time exclusivity and, I suppose, promotion via Al's site's linking to them; in exchange, they paid for the videos. TEH SMART.

So through an odd combination of circumstances, I had lunch with "Weird Al" Yankovic Friday, after his Google Q&A. He's as warm and gracious as you'd hope -- not to mention that he's quietly, but unmistakably, very intelligent, and someone who's thought deeply about what he does for a living. It's clearly not just his exceptional comedic and musical talents, but also his brains, that explain his extraordinary career.

Oh, and he's vegan. (Not Vegan -- that is, not from a planet around the star Vega. Or if he's also that, it didn't come up in our lunchtime conversation.)

The always terrific Stu Atkinson makes an impassioned plea for the European Space Agency to be more generous in sharing images taken by its missions, as NASA has been. One really gets a sense of how much is being withheld, of how impoverished we are thanks to this unenlightened policy.

Historically, researchers associated with space missions get limited-time (usually 6-12 months), exclusive access to the science data returned from their mission before the data is made public -- and this has generally included the pictures. This policy is entirely understandable: the scientists invest years of their careers in these missions, uncertain of the outcome, and should get a reward for that. Their reward is to have a chance to be the first to research and publish their findings; that's just gold for scientists.

So I get that, and I'm broadly okay with it. But Mars Pathfinder, and MER,... more »

Less than one percent of British schoolchildren name ESA, the European Space Agency, when thinking of space exploration organizations. This is really shocking. No doubt ESA's policy on rapidly sharing mission images (which policy is, in a word, "don't") plays into this.

What a real shame. ESA is doing some exciting, terrific missions. But it couldn't be more clear that they have a massive PR problem.

Hm, Google Calendar just lost a bunch of reminders I've added. I rely on Google Calendar to get birthday cards in the mail on time (I send a lot to the other side of the country), so that's scary.

Interestingly, the reminders disappeared from my (Android) phones and tablet only, not from the Web client -- but of course, I only check my mobile devices for the reminders, so that's the only place they really matter. In order to restore them on the phone, I had to go through the Web client, make changes and save them. Only then did they get flushed to the phone. I manually went through a year of birthday reminders to do this with each one.

I still don't know that all of my reminders have been restored, only the ones for birthdays. And I don't know why they disappeared in the first place, so I don't know that they won't do so again. So now I have to nervously,... more »

I made a chart today that shows the distribution (various percentiles) of elevations as a function of latitude on Mars. It was pretty exciting, and I even learned something new about Mars, namely that:
* the median elevation crosses the "sea level" defined for Mars at 0.4°N latitude, i.e. almost precisely at the equator (this is a coincidence since "sea level" was defined via the pressure at the triple point of water), and
* Hellas Planitia is a lot deeper than Valles Marineris (this really surprised me!)

The chart also shows very clearly some other major aspects of Martian topography:
* how the northern hemisphere on average has lower elevation than the south,
* how the northern lowlands are also very flat (99% and 1%ile elevation graphs are very close together),
* Olympus Mons clearly sticks out at +18.65° latitude, as does the whole Tharsisr... more »

I've always vaguely wondered about this, so I shouldn't be surprised it's been answered -- with a refreshing dose of humility and humor, too. (Short answer: nobody knows. But it's well worth reading the whole thing, even if quantum mechanics makes your head spin like a top quark.)

For no good reason, I particularly loved this quote:

It turns out that you can retroactively force the wave function to collapse. That is messed up.
