Carl Sagan: "In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987)

Mars isn't the only place where you need to be an extreme survivor to make it. These three creatures tough it out in extreme environments on our Pale Blue Dot – so how do their adaptations match up with the Red Planet?

NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft has returned the best color and the highest resolution images yet of Pluto’s largest moon, Charon – and these pictures show a surprisingly complex and violent history.

Even whales get lice. Find out how they're a quite a bit different than human lice, but just as creepy!

No mate? No problem. A yellow-bellied water snake at a nature centre in Missouri has just given birth for the second time in as many years ... even though she's no contact with a male snake for at least eight years!

Directly from +Stephen Granade:
"Speaking of science guests, Leighann Lord, who performed on Solve for X and was wonderful on our "Science Stories" panel, wrote about her experience as a first-time Dragon Con attendee. You can find her FB fan page at Leighann Lord - The Very Funny Lady​.

My Seven Favorite Moments from The Con I was invited to perform at my very first Dragon Con in Atlanta, Georgia. For science fiction/fantasy fans this is like being asked to suit up and be the starting quarterback for you...

When water is scarce, why not pull it out of thin air? An industrial designer in Austria is hoping to do just that (well, sort of).

It’s no secret that octopuses are the ocean's masters of camouflage, but the southern sand octopus has a stunt that blows all other cephalopods out of the water!

(PhysOrg.com) -- The concept of time as a way to measure the duration of events is not only deeply intuitive, it also plays an important role in our mathematical descriptions of physical systems. For instance, we define an object’s speed as its displacement per a given time. But some researchers theorize that this Newtonian idea of time as an absolute quantity that flows on its own, along with the idea that time is the fourth dimension of spaceti...

For decades most have believed a massive meteor colliding with Earth killed off the dinosaurs, while others maintain it was extreme volcanic activity that did it. Turns out they could all be right.

The same thing we do every night, Pinky... try to take over the world.
Introduction
Opt-in circles: I will add you to my following circles at your request.

Games - You like reading about games, discussing game themes or mechanics, want random invitations to game nights, and might be interested in playtesting.

Food - You want to read my restaurant reviews, cooking ideas, and probably random dinner gatherings as well (assuming my budget stays healthy).
