The “clockwork orange” Earth

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
So a paper I was on got some press this week… and for a change it was a paper that I wanted to get some attention. It contained, ya know… data and stuff. What did it say? Well, it was all about the atmosphere of the Earth at a time when there is had none of the oxygen gas we breathe. If that wasn’t strange enough, there have been proposals (including by yours truly) that it had an “organic haze.”....

Astrobiology @ National Geographic

National Geographic also provided two judges (Bill Markol and Nikki Lowry) that gave valuable feedback to our contestants throughout the day. I also found out more about the National Geographic Explorers....

ScienceHouse Rock

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN

Ask Dr. Linda Billings that question: if you are seeking or receiving government funding for your research, then you need to know how government funding works. Sometimes I feel like we need to make a “I’m just a budget” cartoon for the science community. We live in a world where people are fighting, and fighting hard, for taxpayer dollars.....
