Sometimes at Saturn you can see things almost as if from every angle at once, the way a Cubist might imagine things. For example, in this image, we're seeing Saturn's A ring in the lower part of the image and the limb of Saturn in the upper.

I cleaned a truck load of rubbish off the side of a beautiful mountain in New Zealand, Mt Ngongotaha, with three people other people who love and respect our land. When I came back two months later this is what I found... and this is how I reacted!

What connects Earth's largest, hottest desert to its largest tropical rain forest? Dust. And lots of it.

For the first time, we've quantified in three dimensions how much dust makes the trans-Atlantic journey from the Sahara Desert the Amazon rain forest. Among this dust is phosphorus, an essential nutrient that acts like a fertilizer, which the Amazon depends on in order to flourish. Details: http://go.nasa.gov/1D7N5fK #EarthRightNow

An interview with Frank Drake, who conducted the first search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) experiment in 1960 and came up with a famous equation that estimates the possible number of alien civilizations.

From a random shot I took from inside of my tent, it seems to be getting a lot of attention...funny I wasn't even going to post that image.

A matter of scale

I'm not usually much of a fan of the Fahrenheit scale, but as this graphic illustrates, it does produce convenient numbers for the purposes of discussing the weather.

(Image credit unknown; Googling it produces many hits.)

Selfie from space! This is an image of astronaut Barry (Butch) Wilmore from today's spacewalk. His spacewalking partner, Terry Virts, can be seen in the reflection of Wilmore's visor. The duo rigged a series of power and data and routed 340 of 360 feet of cable, which is part of a reconfiguration of International Space Station​ systems and modules to accommodate the delivery of new docking adapters that commercial crew vehicles will use later this decade to deliver astronauts to the station.

The duo will venture outside the space station again on Wednesday, Feb. 25, to deploy two more cables and lubricate the end of the station’s robotic arm. Details:  http://go.nasa.gov/1D3SOpA #spacewalk #launchamerica #astrobutch

Introduction

I have been fascinated by the stars ever since I can rememeber being alive. Then I found out that most of our great stories are linked to them one way or another, and life too ...
So I become a StarryTeller because I wanted to know why that was!

My technical expertise draws from the biological sciences field, I use that to support science education and dream of space. My wild rabbit has always been curiosity ...

If I could wish for the humankind, I wish that all people could follow their dreams. This is not a given yet but I choose hope, and my faith that telling our success stories makes the difference.

I also wish to share my belief that culture is merely a set of instructions handed down from our ancestors for generations, to ensure our best survival. That culture, shaped by geographical constraints is not a reason to start a war. I know that extinct is forever and I could see that progress can only be achieved if we share the knowledge.

More than anything I wish people could realise that we are really made of stardust.
