Ehmee is spot on here. I have avoided YouTube for exactly this reason--the hateful, sexist comments.

It goes beyond trolls, many of these organize cyber jobs to even impact their personal lives.

There are tons of awesome finds out there. But in my opinion, this is one of the coolest fossils, ever.

I've been a bit behind on +Aaron's World, but I just caught up and wanted to share the most recent episode. It's a really good explanation of the way vaccines work, and why they're important.
Plus, this is one of my absolutely favorite podcasts. Highly recommend it if you haven't heard it yet.

Glad you're caught up and enjoyed the "Virus" episode. Thanks for the kind words and sharing.

As both a fledgling geologist and a child of the computer age, I have mixed feelings about this. I think there's a lot of utility to technology in the field, but the field really isn't a gadget friendly place. I've wrecked two digital cameras and one GPS on digs, and those were relatively sturdy pieces of equipment. So, while I definitely approve of geology working to catch up with the rest of the world, technologically, I highly doubt paper notebooks and brunton compasses are going anywhere anytime soon.

In an extraordinary discovery, astronomers announce they have been able to detect primordial hydrogen, remnant from the Big Bang, inside a very distant Galaxy

The galaxy, denoted Q1442-MD50, is so distant that it took 11 billion years for its light to reach us. The primordial infalling gas resides a mere 190,000 light-years from the galaxy – relatively nearby on galactic length-scales – and is revealed in silhouette in the absorption spectrum of the more distant background quasar QSO J1444535+291905.

"(Phys.org) —Astronomers have detected cold streams of primordial hydrogen, vestigial matter left over from the Big Bang, fueling a distant star-forming galaxy in the early Universe. Profuse flows of gas onto galaxies are believed to be crucial for explaining an era 10 billion years ago, when galaxies were copiously forming stars. To make this discovery, the astronomers – led by Neil Crighton of the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy and Swinburne University – made use of a cosmic coincidence: a bright, distant quasar acting as a "cosmic lighthouse" illuminates the gas flow from behind. The results were published October 2 in the Astrophysical Journal Letters."

A stream of primordial inflowing gas is illuminated from behind by a distant background quasar (lower left; quasar added by an artist, along with the starry background). Using data collected from the W. M. Keck Observatory, the largest optical telescopes in the world, researchers led by Neil Crighton (MPIA and Swinburne University of Technology) have now made the first unambiguous detection of this accretion of pristine gas onto a star-forming galaxy, that was previously theorized to exist based on cosmological simulations of galaxy formation. This simulation shown here was run by the Making Galaxies in a Cosmological Context (MaGICC) project in the theory group at MPIA. Credit: MPIA (G. STINSON / A. V. MACCIÒ)"

So to have empiricism fed back to us by the noise celebrants… well its a little rich.

Museum geek, paleontologist-in-training, and teen science blogger
Introduction
Ali Marie is a poster-child for museum geeks. She's been involved volunteering and taking classes at museums in Denver, South Dakota, and Chicago, since a young age. In her free time, she reads, writes, plays her 5 musical instruments, does paleoart, attends school, hikes, and learns what she can about what's new and interesting in the science world. Her particular interests are earth sciences, education, and museum studies. She is currently in her third year of college, working on Bachelor of Science in Geophysical Sciences.

I've met just about every paleontologist you've ever seen on TV in real life.
