POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Hey, astrobiology colleges… check it out! This just came across my desk. A new roadmapping activity is starting up, and it’s set up to involve as many people as possible by leveraging online tools. I love this sort of thing. It maximizes community involvement while minimizing the environmental (and budgetary) footprint of travel. Anyways, go register and have your voice heard: —– It’s time to chart the future directions of astrobiology research and you can participate. During the month of....

The Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Apologies for missing last month’s post. Gordon Johnston wrote up the astronomical forecast, as always, but I didn’t get around to re-posting it here. Hopefully this month’s will make up for it… —————- The next full Moon will be on Thursday afternoon, April 25, 2013, passing opposite the Sun in Earth-based longitude at 3:57 pm EDT.  The Moon will appear full for about 3 days around this time, from Wednesday morning (possibly even Tuesday evening) through Saturday morning.  As usual,....

LIVEBLOG: Kepler Press Conference 4/18/2013

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Haven’t found time to post this in a while. But today is a special day. (At least that’s what rumor would have you believe.) I’ll upload my thoughts live here: RUMORS.
