It's the Bechdel test for us (nerds, that is). :-)

http://typedrummer.com/ is my new favorite waste of time.

You'll pardon me if I can't hear you over the sound of how awesome my last name is.

No, really.

Posted about a week ago, I missed this great photo until now. SOFIA is currently deployed to Christchurch, New Zealand. Here, the airport tower is lit in honor of the victims of the tragedy in Orlando. Photo by Matt Hayes.

Beautiful gesture, practically from another world .. while many of our very own citizens can't be bothered. And still others, claiming to follow Christ, have publicly applauded the murderer and wish death to those still fighting for their lives.

It's thought that most elements in the universe, other than hydrogen and helium, are created in supernovæ, the fantastic explosions that mark the end of some stars' lives. Now, though, we find evidence supporting the idea that even a nova (which are more frequent and don't end a star) may be a significant contributor as well.

Of particular note, from the article: “these spectra of Nova Delphinum could only be obtained by SOFIA, not by any observatory on the ground or currently in space.”

This is why we work on #SOFIA, to make this kind of investigation possible!

Observations made with NASA’s flying observatory, the Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy (SOFIA) indicate that nova eruptions create elements that can form rocky planets, much like Earth.

I've posted about the Airborne Astronomy Ambassador program before (wherein school teachers fly with us on a mission, inspiring students and improving teaching in STEM).. This video shows more of the program, this time around with German educators.

You can learn more about the Airborne Astronomy Ambassador program here: https://goo.gl/xlYYYh

But watch the video first. ;-)
 
See what teachers experience onboard, and hear how they'll integrate the experience in their classrooms. http://go.nasa.gov/1Q8nJru

Cool. I had no idea they were all so precisely defined.
 
True night starts when sun 18 degrees below horizon

Like stickers? Yeah, I confess, I do too. Here, use this and save $5 on your next order: http://unixstickers.refr.cc/ZZMTNCX

Disclaimer: if you use it, I get a few coins, too. At least, so they say. ;-)

Today (June 22), from 4:00-4:30pm Eastern time (8pm UTC), NASA will stream a live tour of SOFIA, our flying observatory, the largest airborne telescope in the world.

For those of you playing the home game, NASA's Stratospheric Observatory For Infrared Astronomy is a heavily modified Boeing 747SP carrying a 19 ton telescope, performing observations at 40,000 feet, above most of the water vapor in our atmosphere.

Charlie Kaminski and Chris Trinh will be our tour guides as we walk through the aircraft and discuss the different stations on the main deck, the telescope, science images posters along the cabin wall, and the flight deck. Kassandra will select questions submitted by the audience during the tour to be answered by Charlie and Chris.

Tune in, and step inside the observatory!

Hey! That's us! We made the current issue of Science News, in a brief article covering our work in 2012, racing to catch a Pluto occultation that year. It also touches on how the data collected on SOFIA helped the New Horizons team, and how in turn, New Horizons' visit helped better understand the SOFIA data. In the end, both sets of data complimented each other wonderfully, painting a richer story of Pluto than either platform could on its own.

Heck, yeah, we're proud. ;-)

A 747 outfitted with a telescope worked with New Horizons to reveal details about Pluto’s atmosphere.

Dear Admins and Security people,

“Attacks always get better, they never get worse.”

A little bit of advice from our friendly neighborhood NSA.

Thanks,

Dinner with Kris and Lydia yielded the start of a new travel/translation book. This one, though, is for real people travelling in the real world.

"Where is the embassy?"

"These are not my drugs."

"Take me to the border."

My experience with Shamrock has never been anything but the best. Both my car, and my girlfriend's car are serviced there, and I've recommended several friends there as well over the years. Bill, Todd, and everyone else have never been anything but professional and thorough. They're direct, they don't monkey around with "maybe" and "we'll see" like other places; one might say they are almost "honest to a fault". Seriously, I don't know what's up with that other review. I've recommended Shamrock for years, and I'll do it again.
