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+

Jean-Marc Luna36,938My buddies (432/2)of the G+ villageI am happy to share (finally) my first big circles (432/1 and 432/2) with you. It is also a way to thank you and to inform you of my consideration.You will find in these two circles all the people I follow regularly since my first steps on Google+ and which accompany me for soon two years in this beautiful adventure, bringing every day, by their sympathy, their humor, their knowledge, their generosity and their open-mindedness, a bit extra to my everyday life.I do not know everybody, I have crossed the path with some, I communicate more with some and many people became friends, thing which I did not expect by landing here.When I began, I was lucky enough to discover new interesting people, thanks to the system of circles sharing, and I hope that these both will be for you of the same utility.If you add a “plus”, maybe it will have an impact on climate change,if you share this circle, maybe Putin is going to get married with an ukrainian women in 2014,if you include me in your circles, maybe it will solve the problem of hunger in the world,Maybe ... but in fact, nothing is sure ;)A good day to all :)With a special thought for #dirktalamasca  #sharedcircles #circles #circlesharing  2014-03-31 15:30:374321234895CC G+

Three US Congressmen are unhappy with SpaceX's success

SpaceX is doing its job a little too well: Three Congressmen are resorting to red tape and political shenanigans in what looks very much to me like protecting their home turf. Hey, Reps. Gardner, Brooks, and Coffman: Earth is our home turf. But even that's just for now.

Looking for a parking spot... on a comet

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/08/26/rosetta_finding_a_good_place_to_land_on_a_comet.html

In November, the Rosetta spacecraft will deploy a lander to set down on the surface of a comet for the very first time in history. But where will it make that one small step?

What do you look like in UV?

This video showing people's faces in ultraviolet is astonishing, and delightful.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/08/14/portraits_in_uv_thomas_leveritt_video_of_faces_in_ultraviolet.html

The science of it is pretty cool, too. So I described it in the article!

Incredible close-up of comet nucleus may show evidence of a past catastrophe

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/08/14/close_up_of_67_p_has_rosetta_found_evidence_for_a_calving_event.html

It looks to me like a huge chunk of the comet once sheared off, creating a kilometer-high cliff and a lot of debris in the aftermath of a slow-motion landslide. Hopefully more analysis will make this more clear. Either way: The picture is jaw-dropping.

Massive storm clouds are erupting on Uranus

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/08/09/uranus_storms_biggest_weather_systems_seen_from_earth.html

This could be big enough to be seen in amateur 'scopes. I'm hoping we'll see more images of this soon; the weather on Uranus hasn't been well-studied, so anything we can see will help us understand this weird, tipped-over planet.

I'm getting excited: Rosetta is now close enough to comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko to see rubble on its surface!

 [D'OH! Actually, it looks like that's not real; it's likely an image artifact. I've updated my blog post about this together with a new OSIRIS image that's higher res... and doesn't show those same features.]

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/08/02/rosetta_pic_of_comet_from_1000_km.html

And we'll get far better pictures than that very soon. Stay tuned...

I had no idea: 50 years ago today, the first pictures of the Moon by a US spacecraft were taken!

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/07/31/ranger_7_anniversary_of_the_first_close_pictures_of_the_moon_from_space.html

Amazing. Ranger 7 took nearly 5000 more pictures before impacting at 2.5 km/sec into the lunar surface. And its legacy lives on, as we continue to explore the Universe to this day.

What caused this bizarre crater on the Moon?

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/07/31/double_ringed_craters_oblique_view_of_a_weird_lunar_impact.html

Multi-ring craters are really weird, and the physics of them isn't terribly well-understood... but it's probably due not to the impactor, but to What Lies Beneath.

Sen. James Inhofe is slammed by another senator about his global warming ravings.

It's nice to see some politicians standing up for science and for reality. We need a lot more like Sheldon Whitehouse.

A tiny moon of Saturn is blasting out 1000 tons of water into space every hour. Now we know how.

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/07/30/geysers_on_enceladus_powered_by_gravity_heating_the_surface.html

6.5 years of Cassini observations have revealed a lot about what's powering over 100 water-ice geysers on Saturn's moon Enceladus... and show that they start deep within the moon, possibly from a global liquid ocean.

Noctilucent clouds... froooom spaaaaace!

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/07/29/noctilucent_clouds_photo_taken_by_an_astronaut.html

These rare, high altitude clouds are difficult to observe, even from space. An astronaut on the space station managed to capture a glimpse of them, and the result is quite lovely.

Yes, you read that right. Babies are having strokes.

The best animation of a solar eclipse on Mars you'll see this week

http://www.slate.com/blogs/bad_astronomy/2014/07/28/phobos_transit_martian_moon_travels_across_the_sun.html

Watch the Martian moon Phobos eclipse the Sun! Technically, this is a transit (when something small passes in front of something big), but I wonder. Phobos looks big enough that it edges into "annular eclipse" territory... except Phobos isn't round, so the part of the Sun that's not obscured isn't really a ring, either. 

Yeesh. Sometimes semantics gets in the way of cool science.

Imagine the dominant form of life on Earth blithely pouring out megatons of pollution into the air, generation after generation. As you might imagine, it doesn't end well.

Ice giant? Better call Thor!

Kepler-421b is a newly discovered exoplanet about 1000 light years away. What makes this one special is that it has the longest year of any exoplanet seen so far (704 days!) and that it's far enough away from its star that it's an ice giant like Uranus, not a gas giant like Jupiter.
