Starting momentarily
 
We can’t observer how the universe formed, but scientists are still willing to say that we know the universe was created through a Big Bang. In this scenario, students will learn the three main lines of evidence for the Big Bang: the universe is expanding, the Cosmic Microwave Radiation, and the mixture of chemical elements.

Cancelling 5/12, rescheduling for 5/18. Pamela's got the flu!

Join +Fraser Cain  and +Pamela Gay for a live episode of Astronomy Cast. We'll record our 30-minute show, and then stick around to answer your questions about space and astronomy. 

Astronomy Cast Ep. 377: Thomson finds Electron
At the end of the 19th century, physicists were finally beginning to understand the nature of matter itself, including the discovery of electrons - tiny particles of negative charge that surround the nucleus. Here's how J.J. Thompson separated the electrons from their atoms and uncovered their nature.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 376: Miller-Urey Experiment

Evolution explains how life adapts and evolves over eons. But how did life originate? Chemists Miller and Urey put the raw chemicals of life into a solution, applied an electric charge, and created amino acids - the building blocks of life.

This is actually happening!

And on top of it all, if everyone's awesomeness throughout the 36-hour Hangoutathon weren't enough, we have Cupcakes for Science!

How deliciously amazing is this?

THANK YOU - WE SURPASSED OUR GOAL!

In fact, as of this morning, we have raised a whopping $37,457.42 - each and every one of you helped make this happen.  Your awesomeness is indescribable!

And a reminder for anyone who may still be interested in helping to fund science, you can still donate to CosmoQuest through May 5, 2015, on the Hangoutathon page here:

Starting Now!
 
Join us to learn about MOONBOTS 2015, the ludicrously-fun challenge where students worldwide get to build their own Moon robots, and can win a trip to Japan in the process! http://moonbots.org #Moonbots  

Overview
A global team of scientists and engineers are all working toward constructing missions to land on, travel across, and send video back from the Moon. With this new Google Hangout on Air series, co-hosted by +CosmoQuest, we will introduce you to the men & women behind each of these planned missions and bring you all the latest developments and inspiration from the +Google Lunar XPRIZE.

Astronomy Cast Ep. 378: Rutherford and Atoms
Physicists knew the interior of the atom contained protons, neutrons and electrons, but they didn't understand exactly how they were organized. It took Ernest Rutherford to uncover our modern understanding.
