POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Are we taking on astrology this week? We shall see… "I have seen further back in time than any man before me." -Herschel #Cosmos — Shawn DomagalGoldman (@shawndgoldman) March 31, 2014 Can humans go back or forward in time? @NASA answers: http://t.co/euvR86bV9U As seen on #Cosmos pic.twitter.com/Gc363AcF5T — NASA Goddard (@NASAGoddard) March 31, 2014 "I have seen further back in time than any man before me." -Herschel #Cosmos — Shawn DomagalGoldman (@shawndgoldman) March 31, 2014 Herschel's legacy lives on through....

Cosmos live blog episode 3: when knowledge conquered fear

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Well be a few minutes late but we’re organizing something cool tonight. Hang tight! Hmmm… when knowledge conquers fear. Sounds good to me. We’re live-blogging with the help of a room of astrobiologists this week. Britney Schmidt, Aaron Goldman, Steve Vance, David Grinspoon, Lucas Mix, Ty Robinson, and Matt Powell are all here watching this together. They’re are all in town for a workshop. So the tweets I put here are going to echo their thoughts quite a bit. (Also,....

The challenges for Cosmos

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
I’m writing this from a metro platform, after a conversation with astrobiology colleagues about concerns we have about Cosmos, despite our appreciation for it getting science out there… and about the challenges faced by all science communication. The thoughts below were largely spurred by that conversation.

Cosmos Liveblog, Episode 2: “Some of The Things that Molecules Do”

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
So… based on the title I’m expecting some chemistry. And maybe some biochemistry. And maybe some astrochemistry. Hopefully some geochemistry. But definitely some chemistry. Wait. Does that sound boring? I’m expecting some SCIENCE! (With a dab of chemistry.) I’m going to try to liveblog via Twitter this week. Follow along here or @shawndgoldman. "This is a story about me, and you… and your dog." #Cosmos — Shawn DomagalGoldman (@shawndgoldman) March 17, 2014 If you’re looking for something to do after....

The Next Full Moon is the Worm/Crow/Crust/Sap/Sugar/Lenten Moon

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Hey everyone! Shawn here, with Gordon Johnston’s post on the next full moon and everything else happening until then for you to keep your eyes on. I’m in the middle of a busy week, so our next post will likely be the liveblog of the next Cosmos episode on Sudnay evening. Until then… check out the skies, according to Gordon’s breakdown of the highlights.

Cosmos Liveblog Week 1: “Standing Up in the Milky Way”

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Hey everyone! We’re working on ramping up new content for Paleblue.blog, and part of that effort will be live-blogging about episodes from the new series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey. I’ll try to give my thoughts and – when I have them – insights to the astrobiology community that has led to some of the discoveries the show discusses. 9:01 I love the intro, with a very clear nod to Sagan and the original series. Also, the graphics package looks unbelievable. That’s....
