Critical thinking wins again. Always take a few moments to question the implied facts.
 
I've been seeing this picture going around, and of course it has no sources to back up it's claim. Having the nasty habit of not believing everything I read, I did some searching around to see if it was true.

Kinda. The Yoplait Strawberry & Banana yogurt shown has 33g of carbs of which 26g are from "sugars." One KK doughnut has 22g of carbs with 11g of that from "sugars." So mathematically, it's correct to say that the yogurt has the amount of sugars as 2.7x doughnuts. This is also one of the unhealthiest yogurt option out there.

Are doughnuts an equivalent option? Your intuition is correct. No, they're not. Each doughnut has almost 10x as much fat, more sodium, and less vitamins & minerals. So, with 2.7 doughnuts you'd be ingesting less sugar, but 284mg of sodium, 35g of fat and 432 calories. :O)

Can you identify this connector? If so, reply to +Ben Krasnow's original post, not this one.
 
I'd appreciate your help in identifying this RF connector. QMA?! Diameter is 5mm.  No threads.  Used in a vacuum feedthrough bulkhead fitting. It only carries 6MHz in operation.

I love "Pale Blue Bot". :)

The full-res version (http://go.nasa.gov/14HTYbO) is wonderful. Adding rover tracks makes the landscape look a lot less alien.
 
From Pale Blue Dot to Pale Blue Bot. The HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter got this image of +NASA 's Curiosity Mars rover from orbit.

The landing site and the rover appear blue because of the enhanced coloring of the image. More details: http://go.nasa.gov/14HTYbO

Depending on your perspective, the rover tracks may make it look more alien.

Yes. This is also what most conversations at my house devolve into, because the everyday world is FASCINATING when viewed through the lens of science.

This is beautiful, even on my laptop. I wonder if there's a 4K theater around that will show it...
 
Totally amazing trailer of a full-length IMAX film I'm now looking forward to!
A must watch, in 1080p.

Copenhagen Suborbitals is a small group of friends who build and launch rockets, including one that will take them into space. They fill my heart with joy. http://copenhagensuborbitals.com/
 
Very neat and awe-inspiring video from Copenhagen Suborbitals. 9 days till Sapphire rocket launch!

I'm still new to hangouts with audiences, but this one seems compelling. If it involves +Tim Bailey, it's bound to be good. 
 
The first in a series of one-of-a-kind hangouts hosted by Yuri's Night. We'll be talking with some amazing experts in zero-gravity about the movie "Gravity" that came out a few weeks ago. Joining us will be Astronaut +Ron Garan, Astronaut +Cady Coleman  JSC Physiologist +Liz Warren , Founder and Editor of collectSPACE +Robert Pearlman, Zero G Flight Director +Tim Bailey, and Yuri's Night event host and Executive Director Dr. +Ryan Kobrick!

Watch our Google+ account and +1 us to learn about more Hangin' with Yuri Hangout events in the coming months leading up to Yuri's Night on April 12, 2014.

*Panel members are not officially representing their companies or NASA, they are #SpaceTweeps (social media users with a passion for space), movie buffs and awesome people who want to share their insight from their spacey backgrounds.

Why stop on April 12, 2014? April 15, 2014 is a lunar eclipse which should be a blood red moon hanging low in the sky. This is happening during Passover. Any comments?

Is it just the way I scroll around G+, or are random bits of navigation always jumping out at you, too?

It's a new UI design school. Rather than constantly visible and recognizable affordances, clear the UI and only show controls when applicable or when the cursor is nearby. There are pros (cleaner UI is more readable) and cons (some controls remain forever undiscovered, jumpy UI is unsettling and distractions).

I look forward to seeing this design school mature into something better than the current G+. The current G+ is just a bit too jumpy, a bit too distracting.

Hello, new encirclers! I'm not sure where you're all coming from, but please do introduce yourself and let me know what you like about space, science, or whatever. Who knows? I might encircle you back.

Also, here's a drawing of a cat in a space helmet. Enjoy!

Playtested a space-themed version of +Jason Morningstar's Dungeon Squad 2 with Karen and the geeklet today. It was fun! They successfully restored power to the space station and shut down the mad AI that had taken it over.

I still need to write up the DM instructions and tidy up the back of the character sheets, but I don't think it'll need any major changes. Hopefully I can find time to finish and release it soon.

Dungeon Squad 2 is a free download: http://www.bullypulpitgames.com/downloads/

Can't wait to see what comes out of SpaceUp Denver. I suspect there are some fascinating newspace start-ups in the area…
 
Heads up, Colorado! +SpaceUp Denver will be October 5th and 6th, with other fun spacy events starting on the 3rd. Check out their new website for details.

Google+ pages still seem like a work in progress. As lovely and designerly as G+ has become, performing basic actions (like adding a manager to a page or connecting it to Youtube) is still difficult and confusing.

Anyway, this is the new page for Measured Voice (my work), created fresh because reasons. (The irony of a company devoted to simple, meaningful uses of social media having to jump through these hoops is not lost on us.)
 
We're moving to a new Google+ profile that will allow us to do Hangouts on Air.

We had the exact same issue. While Google seems to be bringing a lot of style to their product line (finally) the thing they still lack is support. Alas, they don't seem to have been able to automate support out and it makes it really hard to work with their products. We currently have a page that has a manager but no owner and I have no idea how to assign an owner back, nor do we have anyone we can ask for help!

Introduction
programmer, writer, space advocate, citizen scientist

By day I write software to move gobs of data around and make it more useful. Sometimes I write books or teach at conferences to help other people do the same.

I co-founded the San Diego Space Society and created SpaceUp, an unconference for the space community. I live in San Diego, CA with my lovely wife Karen and our geeklet.

Oh, and I'm a physicist. But that's a story for another time.
