As a cofounder of Google, +Sergey Brin  has already done lots of very good things for the world on a macro scale.

He's given us a great technology that makes the Internet usable, created a company that provides jobs for tens of thousands of people, and donated millions to various charities. He's investing in genetic cures for diseases and space exploration, too.

With it, Brin is buying up downtown property in the small Silicon Valley town he lives in, and is renting it out at below market rates to stores he thinks families in the community need: a children's bookstore, a children's playspace, and a child-friendly coffee shop.

People with Google Glass might want to stay out of this McDonald's in Paris.

"How does a student from a country in which a third of the population is nomadic, living in round white felt tents called gers on the vast steppe, ace an M.I.T. course even though nothing like this is typically taught in Mongolian schools?"

Panspermia: Hoax or Hope?

Fire in the Sky: On December 29, 2012 a fireball exploded in the skies above Sri Lanka, followed by a meteorite that fell near the ancient city of Polonnaruwa. A sample was sent to the Buckingham Institute of Astrobiology and Cardiff University. Researchers now report in the Journal of Cosmology of finding fossils of diatoms enmeshed within the meteorite. Because of the way the microfossils were distributed within the rock, they rule out surface contamination.

Panspermia (from the Greek "all" and "sperm") is the idea that life exists throughout the Universe, distributed by meteoroids, asteroids and planetoids. So, is this compelling evidence of Panspermia or life in outer space?

Red Rain: The researchers claim that the mysterious red rain that fell in the area within days of the meteorite, reported by our own +Siromi Samarasinghe (http://goo.gl/dq7Jq), was seeded from the meteorite. Reports of red rain were first made in Homer's Iliad and may simply be from airborne algal spores. Is this red rain a red herring?

Earthly Origin? Could it be that this rock was initially blasted off from earth, by the Mesozoic-ending impact on the Yucatan Peninsula, and is now falling back to earth after a grand journey? The article does mention that similar fossils have been found that date back to the time of the dinosaurs.

Hasty Science? The meteorite only just landed, less than 3 weeks ago! How much of a review did this paper get? The authors make the grand statement that "identification of fossilised diatoms in the Polonnaruwa meteorite is firmly established and unimpeachable" and with several self-citations, that "the idea of microbial life carried within comets and the theory of cometary panspermia is thus vindicated". Their final sentence is a WIN, in my opinion: The universe, not humans, must have the final say to declare what the world is really like. What do you think?

Photo Sphere // Little Petra

This photo sphere, taken with the Nexus 4, was captured in the ancient ruins of "Little Petra" in Jordan, not to be confused with Petra itself. Located a handful of km away from the main attraction, Little Petra sees far less tourists but still contains some amazing preserved building.

I took this photo sphere while leading a photo workshop with my good friend +Ken Kaminesky  in Jordan for my company +The Giving Lens  . To view more images and media from this trip you can use the hashtag #TGLjordan on Google+, Twitter and Instagram.

A special thanks to +Royal Jordanian RJ  for being the official airline of our TGL Jordan workshop.
