A visit to Kepler-10c

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
I’ve been busy raising my kid and moving us into a new house, which is the reason for the non-posts. I didn’t even have TV for about a month, so I couldn’t even do my live-blogging of Cosmos. Fortunately, my colleague and (more importantly) good friend Ravi Kopparapu is picking up the slack. Ravi just put up a blog post about the recently-discovered exoplanet, Kepler-10c. I’m reposting it here with his permission. It’s a great read, and I suggest you....

The Next Full Moon is the Flower Moon

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Hey everyone! I hope you enjoyed the lunar eclipse last month. For more on what we can look forward to this month, including a potential (pretty, not necessarily dangerous) meteor shower check out Gordon Johnston’s monthly primer on astronomical happenings. As always, thanks Gordon! —- The next full Moon will be in one week, on Wednesday afternoon, May 14, 2014. The Moon will be “opposite” the Sun as seen from the Earth (i.e., 180 degrees from the Sun in Earth-based....

Cosmos liveblog episode 9: the lost worlds of planet earth

POSTED BY: S. DOMAGAL-GOLDMAN
 
Not sure if I’ll get to liveblog tonight. I just arrived in nyc and need to find a place to watch in time… I WILL get a blog post up about this episode at some point as this is a topic near to my heart. Ironically, I’m in NYC for a meeting at which I’ll be giving a talk on this very topic. I’m my mind, early Earth is the most alien planet for which we have data.

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…”....
