Bad Astronomy

Thank you

This is my last post for the Bad Astronomy Blog on Discover Magazine. As of today – Monday, November 12, 2012 – the blog has a new home at Slate magazine. It has been my pleasure and honor to be a Discover blogger for more than four years. Still, I remember my science teacher in […]

Revealed: My tattoo

Folks, it’s time. And an appropriate time: for my penultimate post here at Discover Magazine, I’ve decided to show you my tattoo. I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but there were a lot of behind-the-scenes issues getting permissions I won’t bore you with. But by the time I was able to post […]

A refreshing Shasta

The Cascade range of volcanoes is pretty impressive to see from the ground. Stretching from California up to Washington, it includes famous mountains like Saint Helens, Hood, and Rainier. I’ve seen many of these while driving in the area, and they’re even cooler from an airplane. But I have to say, the view from the […]

Nerd deGrasse Tyson

Speaking of Neil Tyson, if you’re a fan of his you’ll be pleased to know that his show, Star Talk Radio, is now going to be part of the Nerdist Channel network! Thats actually a pretty big deal; Chris Hardwick has created this juggernaut of Nerdist and it reaches a lot of folks. The new […]

Astronomy podcast for kids

I love it when kids get excited enough about science to go out and do something about it. That’s why I’m digging Jeffrey Tang – who’s 10 – because he created the Astronomy For Kids podcast, where he talks about different astronomical things. The first podcast went up in February 2012 ("The Solar System") and […]

Repost: Carl Sagan Day

[Today is Carl Sagan’s birthday, celebrated by lovers of science and rationality around the planet. I wrote the following post last year, but I think it’s still appropriate (and I updated his age). Happy birthday, Carl. It’s a darker cosmos without you, but we still walk with the candle you lit for us.] If Carl […]

Moon bounce

Of all the amazing pictures returned from the moon by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter – and I may include the Apollo landing sites among them – I think my favorites are the ones showing boulders that rolled down slopes. Did I say rolled? I mean bounced! [Click to enselenate.] This shot from LRO shows the […]

Uwingu wants you to submit names for their planetary baby book

Astronomers are discovering a lot of planets these days. The official count is 800+, with thousands of more candidates (unconfirmed but suspiciously planet-like). Right now we give them alphabet soup names. Alpha Centauri Bb. HR 8799b (through HR8799 e). And of course, everyone’s favorite, 2MASS J04414489+2301513b. These catalog names are useful, but less than public […]

Getting closer: Super-Earth found in a star’s habitable zone

Well now, this is an interesting discovery: astronomers have found what looks like a "super-Earth" – a planet more massive than Earth but still smaller than a gas giant – orbiting a nearby star at the right distance to have liquid water on it! Given that, it might – might – be Earthlike. This is […]

Back to work

A few people – including my pal Deric Hughes – put together this non-partisan and nicely done video in honor of democracy: If you like it, give it a thumbs-up on YouTube and Like it on FB. And they’re right. As I wrote last night, there is much work to be done. I don’t think […]

Supporters of the Government "Death Panels"

Posted on August 26, 2009 at 7:48am 0 Comments

I made this blog post a little while ago on my web page, but I wanted to repost it here, just because of the sheer irony and humour of it (not my post, but the two "supporters". I don't honestly think that I'm that funny!):

You are all aware I am sure of the "Government Death Panels" that are in the… Continue

Partisan Stupidity

Posted on June 22, 2009 at 10:30am 3 Comments

From Here is what I wrote though:

Have you ever had the pleasure to observe someone incredibly competent, thoughtful, skillful, and a leader in their field perform a job (such as brain surgery)? And then some fucking retard who hasn't the foggiest clue how to do this job criticizes ("What I'd do is cut right through that there Medulla Oblangata...")? Watching the way the Republicans are criticizing President Obama over his reaction to the Iranian Election… Continue

Again, apologies for just posting the link, but I like to add silly pictures and things like that to my blog post, and I also like the traffic to my site. So here is Part 2: Don't think there will be any more parts unless I have a brainstorm.
