The Next Full Moon is the Wolf Moon

 
Shawn here... I'm still buried in a nightmare of a paper. But it's almost done and I promise (no, really!) that I'll be blogging more once that's in press. But I can't justify spending more time on blogging while a critical paper is so close to being finished. The problem is it's been that close

Teaching evolution in Turkey

 
A cross between Wayne Manor, a Napa Valley vineyard, a calculus-obsessed kibbutz and a British collegiate faculty lounge, somebody (Ali Nesin) actually built the math classroom that your math teacher dreamed about while you were taking your weekly quizzes in high school. You couldn’t ask for a more lovely setting to explore the methods and

Habitable Zone Lifetimes of Exoplanets around Main Sequence Stars

 
Last week, my first research paper was published in the journal Astrobiology. The paper outlines our method for estimating how long 'habitable' conditions may exist for on planets that have been discovered in the 'habitable zone' - a concept I regularly discuss on this blog and elsewhere. The run-up to its publication has been surprisingly
