From Phys.org: Astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile have captured the most detailed image ever taken of the Medusa Nebula. As the star at the heart of this nebula made its transition into retirement, it shed its outer layers into space, forming this colorful cloud. The image foreshadows the final fate of the Sun, which will eventually also become an object of this kind. Read more: http://phys.org/news/2015-05-dreadful-beauty-medusa.html

From Pys.org: Astronomers using the National Science Foundation's Very Large Array (VLA) found surprisingly energetic activity in what they otherwise considered a "boring" galaxy, and their discovery provides important insight on how supermassive black holes can have a catastrophic effect on the galaxies in which they reside.

You could use these to investigate whether heavier objects travel further than lighter objects or change the height of the lever to see if the trajectory changes. #Science #ScienceforKids #Education
“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
― Martin Luther King Jr., A Testament of Hope: The Essential Writings and Speeches
" The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. We have a method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only asymptotic approaches to the truth — never there, just closer and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered possibilities. Cleverly designed experiments are the key." -- "Wonder and Skepticism", Carl Sagan
I am not sure how to describe myself. I guess when it comes to politics I am independent (or apolitical), but sound more social liberal most of the time when responding to such things. My husband and I are US veterans. In the end though I don't believe in any particular government or anarchy, and I really don't like politics. I just prefer the facts first over opinion.
I respect science and religious views in the aspects respect is earned. I am not sure if the two should mix in most ways. As such in cases of human history in it becoming a disaster to do so.
I am an agender ( or gender neutral) grey asexual, sex positive, grey romantic. When I must identify other than agender I prefer to be referred as a tomboy.
I enjoy art of all sorts, and what may be considered nerdy or geeky things. Steam punk, cyber punk, and gothic subculture in general I find fascinating. Grey muzzle a bit too in intrests.
Mostly a bit of a determinist and possibly other times leaning toward Compatibilism when given such things as philosophy questions and debate.
Freethinking secular humanist, skeptic, agnostic atheist, and an apatheist as well.
I enjoy learning new things and exploring cultures. I find critical thought and even imagination important in exploring the world around me.
Love the way that nature and the universe works even in all the chaos. The rest I think just gets complicated.
