Donald Trump will think China is testing a new weapon, his advisors agree because they are scientifically illiterate morons too, and thus begins the nuclear apocalypse.

" "We used ALMA to detect adolescent versions of the Milky Way and found that such galaxies do indeed have much higher amounts of molecular gas, which would fuel rapid star formation. I liken these galaxies to an adolescent human who consumes prodigious amounts of food to fuel their own growth during their teenage years."
Dr. Casey Papovich, Texas A&M astronomer "

" The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), as captured in phenomenal panorama from 5,000 meters at Chilean Altiplano -- the highlands of the Andes Mountains. The Milky Way was passing through its zenith at that very moment, and Zodiacal light is also visible in the lower part of the image, with Venus shining through as well.

One more thing...and I know I'm preaching to the proverbial choir. "Star Stuff." I always find comfort in cause and effect. That we are made of star stuff. That we are, indeed, a way for the universe to know itself. And that ripples through every one of our lives. His to yours. Yours to mine. And hopefully mine to someone else's. There may be no better kind of immortality than that.

If you've never made a mistake in your life, then you have not achieved as much as you could have -- had you taken more risks

When facts are what people want to be true, in spite of contrary evidence, witness the beginning of the end of an informed Democracy

Nine planets, eight planets, nine planets, make up your mind +Mike Brown , @plutokiller.

Also notice the psycho-acoustic effects of commercials compressed to sound 6dB louder than the program content.

At the farthest edges of our solar system, scientists have found evidence of a ninth planet. Bill Whitaker reports on Sunday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. ET/PT,

Thanks, Twitterverse for all condolences. At age 89, there’s greater urge to celebrate than to mourn.

Mr. Tyson led antipoverty programs from inside and outside government in New York City and Newark during the racially tense 1960s.

There was a story on +NPR​ this morning about Dark Matter, and I was disappointed that there was no mention of Vera Rubin.

- December 21, 2016: Happy Solstice to all residents of planet Earth. A cosmic celebration transcending all that divides us.
- December Solstice: Shortest day above the equator. Longest day below. But on the equator, day equals night all year round.

+Chris Still You're absolutely correct. I would add that we need everyone possible to become interested in science. Our planet and humankind depend on it.

The first time I watched Cosmos (w/NDT) I didn't catch the allusion to the next great extinction, but now it becomes all too clear.

Google Plus has a cap of 5000 people in Circles total and the above Date and time is when we crossed that threshold. As a result of this policy I cannot Circle more people at this time with out un-Circling some early adopters. My current feelings are that would be unfair to them so please know I appreciate your interest but unfortunately I won't be Circling you until the above policy changes. 
Thank-you for your interest and understanding.
