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! :)

A list that's unfortunately necessary: Beall's List of Predatory, Open-Access Publishers -- companies that masquerade as publishers of respected journals, but are actually vanity presses, printing articles for virtually anyone who'll pay their high fees, with sham or nonexistent "peer review".

Quite fascinating AND endlessly remarkable.

And costly beyond measure.

We Yanks have to provide opportunities for people trained in STEM (science, technology, etc).

Without a supply of such people, our war-making powers would atrophy.

Quite remarkable!

I visit NASA APOD every day; it's my only chance to see some stars. Here the light pollution is so bad that we sometimes see a planet or a some stars but too few to see the pattern.

On the far right, bottom of the photo, press the circle button for a panoramic view of the Milky Way.

I love astronomy and do get the photo of the day from NASA. I don't like it enough to learn the names of the constellations and stars. Of course, I know the usual ones ... the Dippers and Cassiopea, stuff like that. 

According to Tyson, when the Milky Way and Andromeda collide, there will not be too much collision because the stars will dance and circle around each other and mingle their dust clouds. 

Comment by tom sarbeck on January 24, 2015 at 5:55pm

Fasten your seatbelts, future earthlings.

I understand that Andromeda and our Milky Way will collide.

In about five billion years.

Does anyone else get NASA's Astronomy Pic of the Day?

Search on NASA APOD. Every day a different pic.

I've made it my Firefox browser homepage.

My computer wouldn't show "NASA's Largest Picture Ever Taken" so I had to hunt for it.  Finally found it and it was amazing how much I could zoom-in on it.
