My friend Matt Johnson studies the effects of psychedelics on the brain (as in that's his research job at Johns Hopkins University, not his hobby). He's looking for volunteers to answer a survey about psychedelic usage and reduction in smoking. If you are interested, here's a description of the study with requirements and a link to the survey.

------------------------------------

Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine are currently recruiting individuals who have quit smoking cigarettes or reduced their smoking (even temporarily) after an experience with a psychedelic, for participation in an online survey. Our team has previously conducted innovative research on the effects of compounds including psilocybin, dextromethorphan, and salvinorin A.

The goal of this survey is to learn more about whether psychedelic drugs are associated with reduction or cessation of cigarette smoking. We want to characterize people's experiences in non­laboratory settings in which taking a psychedelic may have led to reducing or quitting smoking. For the purposes of this survey, we will be asking specifically about individuals who have quit smoking cigarettes or reduced their smoking (even temporarily) after experiences with psilocybin (magic) mushrooms, LSD, morning glory seeds, mescaline, peyote cactus, San Pedro cactus, DMT, or ayahuasca. This research study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of Johns Hopkins Medicine.

The survey is completely anonymous (IP addresses will not be recorded) and will require 40-45 minutes to complete. If you are interested in participating, please click the following link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JHUpsychedelicsmokingcessation. Your participation is voluntary and will not be financially compensated.

Participants must be 18+ years of age, speak/write English fluently, and have experienced a reduction or cessation of cigarette smoking after an experience with one of the psychedelic substances listed above. For more information, please contact the researchers via the site's private messaging system.

Principal Investigator: Matthew W. Johnson, Ph.D.
Protocol: NA_00084260

Occurring after the Mercury program and before Apollo, Project Gemini has gotten lost in the public's collective consciousness. Here are some photos from that project.

This is a nifty blog post about treating the Mars rover Opportunity's path as a hiking trail.
 
How long would it take to hike the "Endeavour Trail" on Mars, following in Opportunity's footsteps? Stu Atkinson works it out.

(Stu is sadly not on Google+, I think, but he's @mars_stu on Twitter.)

Awesome! What a deal! This watch sells for the low, low price of $87,000. That with almost 40% off!

(Check out the reviews for a riot!)

Today is the 100th birthday of Werner von Braun, the rocket engineer responsible for building the American space program. However, he had a very checkered history as the rocket engineer and SS officer responsible for building Nazi Germany's ballistic missile program with slave labor.
