Cosmos Liveblog Episode 7: The Clean Room

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
I’ll be “liveblogging” on a delay tonight, but I will post my thoughts. Stay tuned… Finally starting now. Pretty psyched about tonight based on the title, because my own career got started in the clean room of Ariel Anbar. Also, because I’m starting late I’m ditching Twitter for the night and will just post my thoughts free-form here. That means less pictures and more text. “There was once a man who went searching for the true age of the Earth…”....

The Next Full Moon is the Pink Moon

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Below is Gordon Johnston’s monthly(ish) newsletter on what to watch for in the skies. Note those in North America will have a really nice opportunity to view a full lunar eclipse in a week or so. While being wowed by the beauty of the event, my mind will likely wander to the red color the moon will take on. That red will come from, as Gordon writes below, “all the sunrises and sunsets of the Earth all at once.” What’s....

Cosmos Liveblog Episode 5: Hiding in the Light

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Tonight we get an introduction to the scientific method, and an explanation its origins. Awesome. Most people don’t know where it originated, much less from whom. Should be fun! We’ll also learn about the electromagnetic spectrum, visible light, light we can’t see… and (I hope?) how we can use that to look for life in the cosmos. Yes, we’re also big fans of Game of Thrones at the blog: Awesome collision of shows here: "The night is dark and full....

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,....
