Now is the time to begin a hard push for the 2012 candidates to participate in a debate on science and technology matters, during the coming presidential debate season. Make this an issue. Make it clear that you(you-personally) consider this to be a vital matter. The one thing that will correlate with future U.S. success will be whether we have the will to become - once again - a scientifically-oriented, ambitiously pragmatic, problem solving nation, once again. Seriously, can you picture America being led by a science ignoramus? If we got this to matter, it might happen EVERY election. Please do check in, sign-on. Press the issue. http://www.sciencedebate.org/

It's quite unusual for me to miss skiing these days, but this makes me miss skiing.

Rare 360-degree Panorama of the Southern Sky

The +Milky Way arches across this rare 360-degree panorama of the night sky above the Paranal platform, home of ESO’s Very Large Telescope. The image was made from 37 individual frames with a total exposure time of about 30 minutes, taken in the early morning hours. The +Moon is just rising and the zodiacal light shines above it, while the Milky Way stretches across the sky opposite the observatory.

The open telescope domes of the world’s most advanced ground-based astronomical observatory are all visible in the image: the four smaller 1.8-metre Auxiliary Telescopes that can be used together in the interferometric mode, and the four giant 8.2-metre Unit Telescopes. To the right in the image and below the arc of the Milky Way, two of our galactic neighbours, the Small and Large Magellanic Clouds, can be seen.

I'm almost tempted to go into the Kindle Select program just so I have an excuse to take a 90 day break from doing any more ebook formatting.
