Starting momentarily (on an odd day but with an awesome experiment).
 
Rescheduled for Tuesday.

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. 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 Hangout On Air is hosted by Astronomy Cast. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

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?

we had an trip and falter your link moment. Please travel with us to this link
 
Come celebrate science (and help us fund and do science) during our 36-hour Hangoutathon. During this event, we invite you to race to map the worlds; Mercury, the Moon, Mars (yes, we’ll have Mars!), and cold distant Vesta. While you do science, we’ll take you on a tour around the world as we follow the terminator to Global Star Party events taking place around the world. We’ll also be joined by a myriad of guests. (Stay tuned for complete listings!)

This is Part 2 of 4

Today, we are able to study the universe in many colors that can’t be seen with our eyes. From detecting X-rays, to listening to the radio universe, we are able to use digital detectors to “see” hidden aspects of distant objects. In this Hangout, we will review the electromagnetic spectrum.

Much of the evolution of the universe can be described through the pull of gravity and push of pressure. Gravity condenses gas, it heats up, and if it can, it expands, and if it can’t, stars are formed. In this Hangout, we will consider the gas laws, and look at different kinds of nebulae.

I saw that episode on Netflix once. Was very surprised and excited to see her. "I know that astronomer!"

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. 374: Stern-Gerlach Experiment

In the world of quantum mechanics, particles behave in discreet ways. One breakthrough experiment was the Stern-Gerlach Experiment, performed in 1922. They passed silver atoms through a magnetic field and watched how the spin of the atoms caused the particles to deflect in a very specific way.
