"Connecting Your Team with Social Media" My Los Angeles #FTCKickoff   slides are live. Enjoy and ask questions. This is just the start of the conversation.

#omgrobots   #omgftc   #FTC14   #FTC   #socialmedia
Find out about nine different social media tools that you can use to help your FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team connect with other teams, professional engineers and your community. Includes Twitter, Facebook, Google+, YouTube, Instagram, Tumblr, Wordpress, Reddit and Github, plus local and national FIRST and FTC-specific Web resources and contact information from the speaker.

Come #SpaceOut  with +DNews and +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory today! We're going to be talking about Europa and the search for life beyond Earth. Starts at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET, 2300 GMT).

Tag Qs #spaceout  and +Bobak Ferdowsi +Morgan Cable or Kevin Hand might answer live on air.
 
Each month DNews will sit down with NASA to discuss amazing space topics!

This month, we'll be talking about Jupiter's icy moon Europa. Could its subsurface oceans harbor life? What extreme engineering challenges would we have to overcome to explore it? What field work is going on on Earth right now to help find life on other worlds?

Our guests will include:
Kevin Hand
Astrobiologist and Deputy Chief Scientist, Solar System Exploration
@Alienoceans

Bobak Ferdowsi 
Engineer, proposed Europa Clipper mission, aka "NASA Mohawk Guy" 
@tweetsoutloud

Morgan Cable
Chemist, JPL postdoctoral fellow

Join hosts Trace Dominguez and Dr. Ian O'Neill this Wednesday, August 27th at 4pm PDT as we attempt to figure out the universe. Leave questions below or tweet them to @DNews with the hashtag #SpaceOut for a chance to have them answered on-air!
This Hangout On Air is hosted by DNews. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

Head outside on Friday at 2:27 p.m. PDT (5:57 p.m. EDT, 2127 UTC) and wave toward the East. The Cassini spacecraft will be taking a picture of Earth from space.

Tag pics of you & your friends with #waveatsaturn  and they could be used in a special collage made by the Cassini team.
 
#WaveAtSaturn on Friday, July 19, when +NASA's Cassini spacecraft will take a picture of Earth from deep #space.

Find out what time to wave and how to participate from this guide.

So proud to be representing these real-life "Real Genius"es. Sorry, the laser can't be redirected to make popcorn, but it's still pretty cool.
 
Sounds like a movie blockbuster, but it's real. +NASA 's #OPALS project readies to beam data from space via laser.

Will these robots have a built in safety shutdown mechanism and will they eventually think independently, and like simulated programs affiliate and confluence and see humans as a potential threat? Harnessing self awareness beyond design expectations, accidental learning requirements that excel built in parameters, separating in essences that it was compliant from creation. A rogue AI specimen .

Put on your pocket protector and pass the lucky peanuts. #OTD  in 1964, +NASA's Ranger 7 met the moon.

See inside mission control and the press room in this +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory film.

I was 10 years old at the time. I was really into space and I was up on the moon probes ahead of Apollo 11.

Come #SpaceOut  with +NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and +DNews! Like Voltron, we've assembled a fun team here on lab to talk about the Curiosity Mars rover and what's ahead for the mission.
 
Each month DNews will sit down with NASA to discuss amazing space topics!

This month, as the 2nd Anniversary of Curiosity landing on Mars is quickly approaching, we thought it would be a great time to talk about the Red Planet!

Our guests will include:
Ashwin Vasavada, deputy project scientist
Bobak Ferdowsi, systems engineer, Mohawk guy 
Nagin Cox, tactical uplink lead 
Matt Heverly, rover driver 
Amy Shira Teitel, Spaceflight historian

Join hosts Trace Dominguez and Dr. Ian O'Neill this Wednesday, July 30th at 4pm PDT as we attempt to figure out the universe. Leave questions below or tweet them to @DNews with the hashtag #SpaceOut for a chance to have them answered on-air!

Did somebody say Clyde?
 
Meet RoboSimian, an ape-like disaster-recovery #robot under construction at JPL. Today, it was selected to move ahead in competition in the DARPA Robotics Challenge. #darpadrc

Really had to work hard to get all the "In Soviet Russia, Mars Land on YOU!" jokes out of my system before posting about this.
 
Back from the USSR (Era): Did some Russian fans of NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover spot the 1971 Soviet Mars 3 lander in this HiRISE pic?
