This is amazing!
I was in Grant Park on election night in 2008. It was thrilling! May we be as fortunate again on this day. Obama 2012...Forward!
I'm grateful to Professor Randall for creating a bridge for non-scientists to begin to be able to grasp the questions that particle physicists are grappling with on a daily basis. I find it thrilling. I turn to science and scientists for metaphors, which are the source of a writer's energy.
I love this!
On June 5, 2012, Hinode captured these stunning views of the transit of Venus -- the last instance of this rare phenomenon until 2117. Hinode is a joint JAXA/NASA mission to study the connections of the sun's surface magnetism, primarily in and around sunspots. NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., manages Hinode science operations and oversaw development of the scientific instrumentation provided for the mission by NASA, and industry. The Lockheed Martin Corp. in Palo Alto, Calif., is the lead U.S. investigator for the Solar Optical Telescope.

Many of you have expressed an interest in this video. I wanted to let you know that I was contacted by Indigo Films regarding this clip. They are doing a series for the Weather Channel that is called Full Force Nature; the episode will be about the Chicago Blizzard of 2011. I gave them permission to use my video, if they find it useful to their project. The program will air on Thursday, December 29th at 9:00.
I'm assuming that's NY time, but I will confirm and report back.
