Whether you're a professional, a student, an amateur, an enthusiast, whatever! Lots of atheists love science. Might as well have a group for it!

Feel free to nerd out, link articles, talk about your favorite field of research, whatever!

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! :)

Joan and Patricia, you two have been helping me so much to get over my sh*tty morning today.  There isn't anything that I enjoy more than looking at the universe and realizing that I don't really matter all that much.

Thank you!

"Chandra Celebrates the International Year of Light

"In this image, an expanding shell of debris called SNR 0519-69.0 is left behind after a massive star exploded in the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy to the Milky Way. Multimillion degree gas is seen in X-rays from Chandra, in blue. The outer edge of the explosion (red) and stars in the field of view are seen in visible light from the Hubble Space Telescope."

Patricia and Felaine, from the very far to the very near, the dimensions  stagger the imagination. 

Technologies open up possibilities far beyond those of former generations. There is so much work to do and so much pleasure to experience as we explore these aspects. 

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 23, 2015 at 6:48pm

Felaine, Doesn't that just give you goose bumps!? To think that "empty" space is that full of even more wonder than we can imagine. Eternity is far, far away. 

I wonder if daisies or bluebirds or trout or humans live anywhere out there?

From NASA & Hubble...Breathtaking!

Comment by Randall Smith on December 8, 2014 at 7:20am

There is much happening on the space exploration front. I just wish it got as much news coverage as something like what the Pope is doing.

Landing on a comet--awesome! Let's hope they get it to respond.

From Brazilian artist Carol Rossetti's series Mulheres / Women:

Clara is an engineer and she's done listening that women and mathematics "don't go together". Relax, Clara. Those who think that gender determines intellectual performance can't really have a good logical thought.(See a few more at Buzzfeed, or see the entire Women Project at the artist's website)

Yellowstone's vents, geysers, hot springs, and popping mud pots are interesting.  

The last time I visited Yellowstone was before I knew it was a supervolcano, but that won't stop me from visiting it again.

But if that sucker blows again, we're all in for trouble.
