+Science on G+ is a well-curated and high quality community which is populated by science posts. Since we take the time to curate each and every post, look at content, check stories and references and ask for references and links for every story, it is verifiable science. The posts in the community are a repertoire of knowledge which is reaching encyclopedic proportions which links across many topics and includes scientific journals, organizations, writers, scientists and people who just love the journey of discovery which is science.

Our strength has been our mods network, and I send this out as a hat-tip to them and the stellar work they put in to bring you the best science content which you can trust. You will not find memes in this community, nor will you find jokes. But you will find science which is amazing and fascinating.

On April 6, marine scientist Tim Essington of the University of Washington, published a study in PNAS that found intense fishing does amplify forage fish collapses. He looked at patterns of 55 forage fish populations around the world over multiple decades and saw that collapses were much deeper and more frequent when fishing occurred.

You can find Essington's study on the PNAS website here: http://m.pnas.org/content/early/2015/04/01/1422020112.abstract

If you're interested in a short animation, news story, or fact sheet that explains this research more briefly, please visit http://www.pewtrusts.org

It's featured by many press articles today including "Science" here: http://news.sciencemag.org/climate/2015/04/sardines-hit-hard-overfishing

Awesome -- +Alex Wild and +The University of Texas at Austin are organizing a crowd funding effort to pay for the generation of oodles of high-quality public domain insect images: "We’ll be supporting a team of UT students as they produce thousands of public domain images, both of live animal behavior in the field and of detailed microscopic structures in preserved specimens. We hope you consider helping us as we create a stream of open science images, free for anyone to use."

If you liked yesterday's Jupiter image....

Then wow... have I got something for you....

So if you're wondering what I'm talking about, yesterday I shared out an animation from multiple shots taken by the +Hubble Space Telescope of #Jupiter  and its three moons: #Europa   #Calisto  and #Io . (http://goo.gl/IRI4p7)

But as was revealed in yesterday's #HubbleHangout , the team was also able to resolve the tiny moons Amalthea & Thebe!! Below is a #gif  of multiple frames taken by Hubble.

To give you a bit of perspective, the average radius of Amalthea is about 85 kilometers while the average radius of Thebe is about 49 kilometers. I say average (or mean) radius, because they're so tiny... they're not really spherical... but that's realllllly tiny to be able to resolve not only the object, but their shadow!

Was simply  blown away by this yesterday when +Zolt Levay mentioned some supplemental footage at the #HubbleHeritage  site. http://heritage.stsci.edu/2015/05/supplemental.html

If you didn't see yesterday's show, I totally recommend it. And not just because I was there. It really was an awesome show with fantastic conversations with the science and image teams from many projects coming together to take a rare glimpse at our largest planets and its moons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf6j6WJS8Ig

Next Kickstarter to save more SF books. "Save the Sci Fi: The Next Generation!
[...]
We're here to continue our original mission and SAVE MORE SCI FI! But we can't do it without YOUR HELP!
[...]
Here's what we're doing about it: Each month we choose one great classic, obscure or otherwise fascinating sci-fi book that’s no longer in print and not available online, track down the copyright holder and/or author (if they’re still around), acquire or otherwise clear the copyright, and publish the title as an e-book, for little or no cost. Our supporters and followers help us find titles they remember and love, and we share the stories behind the stories, including in each e-book what we learned about the novel, the author and their history along the way."
Singularity&Co. is raising funds for Save the Sci Fi: The Next Generation! on Kickstarter! Saving rare, forgotten, out-of-print vintage science fiction for the digital future, one e-book at a time!

Introduction
Circle curator for Science and Science Fiction Circles.

I have over 20 Circles and additional circles in my Pages +Peter's Scifi Page, +Fascination SciFi, +Circles on Google+, Peter Tom.

To support my circles, the best thing you can do is reshare them. Circles are reshared on an average of 25 to 35 days. I notify from time to time during circle shares, but not very often. Once in a while I support some author or artist or cause, in which case I may notify you.

Inclusion is easy, just ask for it. Staying in depends on how often you reshare, plus1 and comment. I use an algorithm to manage my circles, so if you get dropped, please ask me for inclusion again and I will add you. This makes sure that you are current, here and willing to support the effort!
