I installed Avast Free Antivirus for Windows and it’s great. Goodbye paid-for antivirus! Download now to stay safe.

Faced with governmental funding cuts to science education and research, the CosmoQuest Virtual Research Facility (CosmoQuest.org) at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville has decided to go old school with a twist: On June 15-16, +Pamela Gay & +Nicole Gugliucci  are hosting a telethon using Google Hangout on Air – A Hangout-a-thon – to raise money to support public engagement in science.
 
The Hangout-a-thon will start on June 15 at noon Eastern (GMT – 5).  Over the weekend, they will host numerous guests, ranging from scientists who will do science demos, creatives who can unite science and art/music, and researchers who will discuss citizen science and address science education from the perspective of research and metrics. Each segment will be released after the event as a stand-alone YouTube video on the AstrosphereVids channel, thus creating a library of content while raising money for future programs. 

Planning for this Hangout-a-thon was triggered by the cuts created by sequestration, and by the current White House plans to transition education out of NASA. If the President's current budget is passed, all the funding programs CosmoQuest relies on for will be zeroed (see http://bit.ly/11m5XYg) and the project will be defunded. Rather than accept that fate, CosmoQuest is working to raise the funds needed to keep their programs going, to build new citizen science programs for researchers that don't otherwise have the means to accomplish their projects, and to contract, as they are able, extraordinary people laid off by these cuts at other institutions to keep doing great things through CosmoQuest. (Links to essays on these cuts are listed below).
 
CosmoQuest wants to make sure astronomy education survives and remains strong. While one team, and one telethon can't fix everything, they hope this event can raise awareness, while protected one small corner of astronomy research and education.

The creeper in me loves this. But realistically, I'm not sure if I should be a Thing. Something feels off. Either way, I agree with the guy that it would raise SOOOOO much money if they did this in the US. #NSFW

Sounds like everyone's having trouble with Firefox 23 and Google Plus. Hopefully this gets resolved by tomorrow night.

+Fraser Cain I figure I might let you know about this (and pass it on to the interested) on a star party night since you've been extolling the use of DSLR cameras for astrophotography.

She's back! Took a while but after that attack it's good to see that she's got everything running smooth again. Consider this mostly alerting the public that's interested.

Just a geek hanging out on G+!
Introduction
Wasn't really active in this social frontier (except on twitter) till G+ seemed to kick into overdrive recently. Highly opinionated, mediocrely smart geek willing to throw stuff out there for fun.
