I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

(Not to mention that I have an artificial heart valve inside my heart, and my ribs were wired shut - how much flesh will protect those wires from magnetically induced electrical currents?)

I had to check to see which disaster was the Carrington event - then I saw mention of solar storms and it clicked. I recall seeing a documentary about the Carrington Event - telegraph operators who had the bad luck to be touching their telegraphs at the time were electrocuted by the current surges that were induced by the geomagnetic mayhem! Yeah, gotta admit I am not looking forward to a repeat in our electricity-dependent society...

We're going to be in deep crappola when another Carrington Event happens:

On a dark, secular, scientific note, all set to Christmas carol tunes:

Because I love science, technology, and space exploration, this video brought tears to my eyes.  

It's a very well made video about the building of the next great telescope that in 2 years will be placed a million miles from earth and be 100 times more powerful than the Hubble telescope.

I liked a post from Nancy Atkinson.  Here are a few quotes from her:

“Space exploration brings out our best.”

“With space exploration, our desire to answer fundamental questions about our place in the Universe can not only help to expand technology, but it helps us look at things in new ways and it seems to help foster a sense of cooperation, and – if I may – peaceful and enduring connections with our fellow humans.”

“Space exploration offers an incredible example of cooperation.”

https://www.amazon.com/Team-Moon-People-Landed-Apollo/dp/054458239X

“Space exploration brings out a sense of inclusiveness. Many of the Apollo astronauts have said that when they traveled to other countries following the missions, people around the world would say how proud they were that “we went to the Moon.” It wasn’t just the US, but “we humans” did it.”

“Space explorations expands our horizons, feeds our curiosity, and helps us finding all sorts of unexpected things while helping to answer profound questions like how did the Universe begin? How did life begin? Are we alone?”

Interesting.  Someone had a bead on global warming 104 years ago.
