I love how +Google+ empowers the public to particiapte in new science and space discoveries. Very cool +SETI Institute 
Join us for this Google Hangout to discuss the latest news about Pluto's tiniest moons, "P4" and "P5". Franck Marchis, senior astronomer at the Carl Sagan Center of the SETI Institute, will host the event. Our guests will be two scientists who have been directly involved in the discoveries, Mark Showalter, Senior Research Scientist at the Carl Sagan Center of the SETI Institute, and Hal Weaver, Researcher at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. Nadia Drake, science reporter from Wired and Alan Boyle Science editor at NBC News Digital will moderate it.
Questions from the viewers will be taken during the event using Twitter (#PlutoMoons), our Facebook page (SETI Institute) and the Google hangout.

Absolutely love this picture of students using +Google+ to access educational lessons from top institutions around the country. A great example of learning without geographic boundaries. 

This particular picture is of student partcipating in +Zoo Atlanta's #virtualfieldtrip  series of Hangouts on Air. Students were treated to a interactive lesson on the biology and science of flight by interacting with owls, falcons and the zoologist who handle them.

Keep an eye out for the #virtualfieldtrip  hashtag to follow more organizations participating in this movement.
