Congrats to the Curiosity team.  Really amazing work.
 
Google Awesome Tribute to Curiosity Finishing Its 1st Martian Year!
On June 24, 2014, NASA's Curiosity rover completes her first Martian year (687 Earth days). Hear team members describe how the mission accomplished its main goal to find a past habitable environment on the Red Planet and our ongoing science studies.

Sit down with a nice cuppa and enjoy. Go on to his blog if you you love this as much as I do.
 
The Smith Cloud And Why It Matters

You may already have seen the press releases about the Smith Cloud, a galaxy-mass cloud of hydrogen (but no stars) interacting with our own galaxy. Researchers have found that to survive a collision with our own galaxy - which it seems to have done - it must have its own dark matter to bind it together.

What the press release doesn't do, in my opinion, is explain why this is important. "Dark galaxies" have been a hugely controversial topic for years, so, if confirmed, this could be very significant. There aren't as many dwarf galaxies orbiting the Milky Way as theories predict (about a factor 10 less, in fact), and the idea that some of them don't form any stars is one way of explaining this.

Looking for dark galaxies was the original title of of PhD, so I explain more about it below. The image shows the Smith Cloud from the NRAO press release, made with the 100m Green Bank Telescope.

I was curious what the Urca looked like, number of guns and so on.  Black Sails might be deviating from history, I'm not sure.  So, read the article carefully, it might allude to some plot twists.  Could make for some great drama next season.

maybe it's just me, but this is awesome.
Every now and again I read an astronomy paper that is written in cool, even tones but makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up. “A New Gravitational Wave Verification Source” is one such paper. It describes an odd star system named WD 0931+444, which had been...

Bought myself a new toy.  Took it home, and now it'll be a little project for the rest of the year.  Is it wrong that I love the hood ornament?

very cool.  I wonder if this couldn't also be helpful in colonizing or terraforming Mars.  Place such a device between Mars and the Sun, to deflect some of the radiation.

This is unreal.  what are the odds of something like this happening?  there is only one other account in history I can think of where a meteoroid is witnessed falling from the heavens. Real or fake?
A couple of days ago, a video taken by a skydiver hit the ‘net like an asteroid impact. That’s because that’s exactly what the claim was: Footage of a meteoroid zipping past the falling diver, a rock from space clearly caught on camera. I was on travel (sigh; that seems...

I thought this was interesting.  I can't believe her parents would refuse her a college degree because of her boyfriend.  If they want the couple to split, embrace him and be patient.

I considered doing doing the same thing when I left home.  It just isn't possible for a kid from a middle class home to pay their own way through school.  Minimum wage doesn't cover more than 2/3s of tuition, never mind living costs.  I used to work 80-100 hours a week trying to make it happen.  Which means I missed or slept through most of my classes.

disaster, bought a used truck, and it broke down the next day. The new battery they installed wasn't new, and wasn't installed correctly. How do you mess up battery installation? The day I picked it up nobody was even around to take final payment. There were guys sitting around doing noting, but they all shrugged and wouldn't do a thing. The salesman who was with a customer spoke to 4 different people trying to find someone to help out. They knew in advance what time I was coming in. The salesman was nice, but most of their staff was rude, and stuck to "it's not my job" type of mentality.
