I’ve always been fascinated by science of all types. It’s really cool that I can sit here and see a live stream of the Mauna Loa eruption thanks to the USGS and YouTube.
As I posted earlier, the ice cream was delivered. It was shipped with big blocks of dry ice to keep it frozen. I’ve always wanted to play with dry ice, and now I’ve finally had the chance.
Earth’s Cries Recorded in Space[^1] I saw this posted on Slashdot this morning but thought it was interesting. They talk about Auroral Kilometric Radiation which is caused by charged particles from the sun hitting Earth’s magnetic field. To me this is what makes science so great. I wonder if other planets make similar sounds. I would be interested in what Neptune and the other gas giants would sound like. I wonder radio would sound like if we could go back in time with a receiver before we had anything that could cause interference.
This news is something I really wish there was more of. The Phoenix Mars lander has successfully landed and already sent back some pictures. It’s really great that they had another lander on Mars in a different area. I am looking forward to the new discoveries it brings to us. I think it’s really important to explore the universe and work on finding other places where we could survive. I think it’s important to the long turn survival of humans because there is too many things that could happen here on Earth to make us extinct.
There was a mystery illness after a meteorite landed in Peru. They determined that a gas discharged from the crater.
I read an interesting article last night. Scientist said that under the right conditions, interstellar plasma can become organized into structures that interact with each other.
Scientists have discovered water on an extrasolar planet for the first time. I admit, I hope this is a sign of life outside our bubble.
