The Daily Countdown

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
I will do my best to give a rundown of the top 3 space/science news stories of the day, with some nugget at the end. This is the first of those posts. 3… The morning saw the sad, sad news that attempts to revive Spirit – the first Mars Exploration Rover – were ending. But the cliche “led a long, full life” may never have been more appropriate. Spirit landed on January 4, 2004. It’s primary mission was scheduled to....

Slipping the Surly Bonds of Earth

POSTED BY: ARIELANBAR
 
Slipping the Surly Bonds of Earth. Scientists often debate the wisdom and value of sending humans into space. Images like this drive home the immensity and grandeur of the endeavor, irrespective of the arguments.

We want your input on types of regular content we could have on PaleBlue.blog.

A Sample of One

POSTED BY: SARALMARI
 
Shawn’s comment on yesterday’s word cloud posted by Betul inspired me to start thinking about a sample of one. It is remarkable that the only life in the universe we know about is here on Earth. You might expect there to be an abundance of life in the universe, or none at all, but not a sample of one. This is an interesting conversation in itself – but you may wonder why with a known sample of one, astrobiology is....

Astrobiology Primer

POSTED BY: BETUL KACAR
 
Collaboration among scientists with expertise in various fields is a requirement for astrobiology’s breadth and interdisciplinarity. For example, it would not be unusual for experts in evolutionary biology, ecology, geochemistry and biochemistry to work together on an astrobiology research project. This blog is our attempt to bring this interdisciplinary and collaborative framework a step further, by proving a platform for scientists (and science enthusiasts) of any level to share their interest in astrobiology. To see how diverse astrobiology is, see....

How is this science blog different from most other science blogs?

POSTED BY: ARIELANBAR
 
If we want to use this blog to create a community, what could be better than a community blog? Most science blogs – like most blogs in general – present the single voice of a single author. PaleBlueBlog will be different because it will be a group blog. We are assembling a team of diverse, science-savvy contributors who represent not only a range of expertise, but also a range of personal perspectives. As a consequence, we hope you will often....
