For a variety of reasons scientists are generally advised not to debate creationists, thus the certain trepidation when our colleague, the well-known television science educator and CSI Fellow Bill Nye, accepted an invitation for just such a debate about origins with creationist Ken Ham.

Afterward the Skeptical Inquirer invited Bill Nye to give his own first-person view of this much-watched and much-discussed debate, the circumstances surrounding it, his preparations and strategy, and the reasons he decided to take part. Read more: http://ow.ly/vRaEo

What Does Sound Look Like?

"When light passes between areas of different air density, it bends. 

You've probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You're seeing light that has been distorted it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

In the mid-nineteenth century, German physicist August Toepler invented a photography technique called Schlieren Flow Visualization to visually capture these changes in density."

Story
Introduction

Steve Kapono Akana, born on April 15, 1975, in Waianae Hawai’i, is an entrepreneur and founder of a startup company in the surfing industry, with a technical and business background in aerospace.  Having earned his degrees from Holy Cross College and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Steve is presently attending graduate school earning his Masters in Business Administration at the University of Lavern. He served in the United States Air Force for 5 years and then went on to join the FALCON Hypersonic Program team at Lockheed Martin Skunk Works in Palmdale, California. The recent successes on the FALCON Hypersonic Program have inspired Steve to revolutionize his passion for water sports.  Currently, Steve is working on a prototype surfboard that integrates many of the design features and engineering principles found on next generation aircraft. His goal is to apply many of the engineering tools, techniques, manufacturing processes, and breakthrough-technologies to water and board-sports related equipment.
