This was updated 26 July 15. Looking 4ward to more understanding of the dips in the northern patch graph, where methane ice is said to be immersed in nitrogen ice. What instrument will tell us that? +NASA New Horizons  
The latest spectra from New Horizons Ralph instrument reveal an abundance of methane ice, but with striking differences from place to place across the frozen surface of Pluto.

Teachers! You may want to grab this for the Fall school season, when Pluto & Charon's barycenter is likely to be mentioned. Another great one is USC.edu's "Introduction to Tides", or just google "barycenter earth moon tides" Happy Homework
The Iasoberg model relates the correlation between the sun, moon, and galactic center to forecasting severe weather events, volcanic eruptions, and other cateclysms months in advance.

I love this planet. Yes. Planet.
Four images from New Horizons’ Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) were combined with color data from the Ralph instrument to create this sharper global view of Pluto.

There's also a video on the NASA website. Kepler-452b is quite a beauty. Tomorrow (Friday, 24 July) at 2pm ET, is the next Pluto Briefing.
NASA's Kepler mission has confirmed the first near-Earth-size planet in the “habitable zone” around a sun-like star. This discovery and the introduction of 11 other new small habitable zone candidate planets mark another milestone in the journey to finding another “Earth.”

Cameras aren't stopping police misconduct. Exhibit A: Sandra Bland

This video shows us that no matter where we are in the world we are all affected by CO2.  Look closely at how high the levels are in the winter months when trees and plants are hibernating.  Could this be a visual window into a world with less and less #trees? +Trees For The Future +Earth Day Network +Isha Foundation

Two layers of hazes seen ... higher up than expected. Surprise, Surprise.
Flowing ice and a surprising extended haze are among the newest discoveries from NASA’s New Horizons mission, which reveal distant Pluto to be an icy world of wonders.

Check out the other pix in this piece. Unusual to say the least. Countdown to today's Pluto briefing 1.5hrs (2p ET).

Has anyone found out if the Texas cop was trying to fill up a quota the day he arrested Sandra Bland? I've found that cops are more 'testy', even with white folks, when they are made to give tickets that raise the eyebrows of those on the receiving end. Bullshit is hard for everybody.
