Join us for another Science HOA, brought to you by +ScienceSunday. An estimated 1% of the human genome codes for genes: those snippets of information that define us as individuals and as a species. What about the vast remainder? Is it the "dark matter" of biology or just "junk DNA"? You may recall the ENCODE project which made a splash in the news with the claim that 80% of the genome was functional. Now comes the push back, with scientists challenging that statement as an overreach. What is ENCODE? What does it tell us and perhaps as important, what does it not tell us? If you have any questions for our panel, please leave them on the Event page as always.

This +ScienceSunday panel discussion will be hosted by +Rajini Rao, +Buddhini Samarasinghe and +Scott Lewis. Joining us will be +Ian Bosdet and +Josh Witten, two scientists that have written extensively about this topic. We hope you can join us as we attempt to decode the controversy!

(Mon08) Voyager 2 Launched 35 years ago today

A public lecture about the journey of the twin Voyager spacecraft will be held at JPL on Sept. 4. More information is available at http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/events/lectures_archive.cfm?year=2012&month=9 .

Thirty-five years ago today, NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft, the first Voyager spacecraft to launch, departed on a journey that would make it the only spacecraft to visit Uranus and Neptune and the longest-operating NASA spacecraft ever. Voyager 2 and its twin, Voyager 1, that launched 16 days later on Sept. 5, 1977, are still going strong, hurtling away from our sun. Mission managers are eagerly anticipating the day when they break on through to the other side - the space between stars.

"Even 35 years on, our rugged Voyager spacecraft are poised to make new discoveries as we eagerly await the signs that we've entered interstellar space," said Ed Stone, Voyager project scientist at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. "Voyager results turned Jupiter and Saturn into full, tumultuous worlds, their moons from faint dots into distinctive places, and gave us our first glimpses of Uranus and Neptune up-close. We can't wait for Voyager to turn our models of the space beyond our sun into the first observations from interstellar space."
