Aurora over Finland


Thomas: "The long wait paid off, the season has started! Not only has it been long to wait throughout the summer. but Lady Aurora was especially tricky last night. After hours of waiting I almost called it a night at 1am, but luckily I stayed just a bit longer. Strong auroras danced in the sky for about 25 minutes. This night showed it once again, you have got to be patient when you want to see auroras."

Steve Bannon: ‘The Trump Presidency…is OVER’ - On the same day as the news broke that Steve Bannon had been ousted from his top-level White House gig, the returned head of Breitbart announced that it was “over” for the Trump presidency “that we fought for.” “The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over,” Bannon told The Weekly Standard, He added that moving forward it was going to be tough for Trump to get things done. “The path forward on things like economic nationalism and i...

Scientists Discover TRAPPIST-1 is Older Than Our Solar System

In February of 2017, a team of European astronomers announced the discovery of a seven-planet system orbiting the nearby star TRAPPIST-1. Aside from the fact that all seven planets were rocky, there was the added bonus of three of them orbiting within TRAPPIST-1’s habitable zone. As such, multiple studies have been conducted that have sought to determine whether or not any planets in the system could be habitable.

When it comes to habitability studies, one of the key factors to consider is the age of the star system. Basically, young stars have a tendency to flare up and release harmful bursts of radiation while planets that orbit older stars have been subject to radiation for longer periods of time. Thanks to a new study by a pair of astronomers, it is now known that the TRAPPIST-1 system is twice as old as the Solar System.

The study, which will be published in The Astrophysical Journal under the title “On The Age Of The TRAPPIST-1 System“, was led by Adam Burgasser, an astronomer at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). He was joined by Eric Mamajek, the deputy program scientist for NASA’s Exoplanet Exploration Program (EEP) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

"Brazilian free-tailed bats are expert flyers, capable of migrating hundreds of miles and regularly traveling more than 30 miles a night. But they pull up short at a narrow ocean channel that cuts across the Bahamas, dividing bat populations that last shared an ancestor hundreds of thousands of years ago.
A new study published in Ecology and Evolutionuncovers a dramatic and unexpected genetic rift between populations of Tadarida brasiliensison either side of the Northwest and Northeast Providence Channels, about 35 miles across at their most narrow point.
Genetic analysis of the populations suggests that bats from Florida colonized the northern Bahamian islands while bats from other parts of the Caribbean likely colonized the southern Bahamas. Why the bats balk at crossing a channel so narrow they can likely see land on the other side while in flight remains a mystery, said Kelly Speer, the study's lead author who completed the research while a master's student at the Florida Museum of Natural History.
"Based on their mainland population behavior, we know they're able to disperse much farther than the distances between islands in the Caribbean," said Speer, now a doctoral student at the American Museum of Natural History. "It doesn't seem like distance is the factor, and there's no association with wind direction. We don't have any idea why they don't cross this channel."
Because they can fly, bats are good models for studying mammal movement in fragmented habitats, Speer said. The ability to disperse, or spread genes by moving to other areas, plays a key role in the evolution of animal populations, and a barrier to bats' dispersal is likely a barrier to less mobile animals".

Total Solar Eclipse of 1979
From cold, clear skies over Riverton, Manitoba, Canada, planet Earth, the solar corona surrounds the silhouette of the New Moon in this telescopic snapshot of the total solar eclipse of February 26, 1979. Thirty eight years ago, it was the last total solar eclipse visible from the contiguous United States. The narrow path of totality ran through the northwestern states of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, and North Dakota before crossing into Canadian provinces Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec. Following the upcoming August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse crossing the U.S. from coast to coast, an annular solar eclipse will be seen in the continental United States on October 14, 2023, visible along a route from Northern California to Florida. Then, the next total solar eclipse to touch the continental U.S. will track across 13 states from from Texas to Maine on April 8, 2024.

This year seems to have more successes in scientific research that would completely transform our world in the future. The article lists out many breakthroughs and #GeneEditing #technology has taken the first place. It says Gene editing technology #CRISPR has been successfully and safely used to remove a #DNA from the #human #embryo. It would eventually lead to production of genetically modified human embryos that could end up as super humans. Ethical questions would arise, but these questions may not stop further researches. GM crops are in existence and being widely used irrespective of opposition. It is not conceivable how #GM embryos would play out in future.

Other scientific developments like #reusableRockets, machine learning through #AI (artificial intelligence), creating metallic #hydrogen that would eventually lead to production of #superconductors are some of other breakthroughs cited as promising. Scientific developments are taking place at breakneck speeds. Hope they don't create new problems that we may have to fight against.

The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. - Steve Bannon

Bannon said this because he got kicked out. But it could be truer than he knows.

First, Trump's Manufacturing Jobs Initiative and Strategic and Policy Forum collapsed as leaders of big companies got scared of being associated with him.

It began last Saturday when the head of the drug company Merck left, saying:

As CEO of Merck and as a matter of personal conscience, I feel a responsibility to take a stand against intolerance and extremism.

Trump blasted him with a tweet. By Tuesday, leaders from Intel, Under Armour, the Alliance for American Manufacturing, the AFL-CIO, 3M and Campbell Soup Company had resigned. Trump tweeted:

For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!

But Tuesday morning he switched gears again on the Charlottesville neo-Nazi rally, declaring a moral equivalence between both sides and garnering instant praise from KKK leader David Duke:

Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about Charlottesville [...]

So, the whole Strategic and Policy Forum had a phone conference and decided to jump off Trump's sinking ship. The head of General Motors explained why:

General Motors is about unity and inclusion and so am I. Recent events, particularly those in Charlottesville, Virginia, and its aftermath, require that we come together as a country and reinforce values and ideals that unite us — tolerance, inclusion and diversity – and speak against those which divide us – racism, bigotry and any politics based on ethnicity.

The Manufacturing Jobs Initiative also collapsed, and Trump hastily disbanded both groups later that day.

Republicans in Congress continued standing like deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming car. Behind the scenes they must surely be making plans. Senator Bob Corker, a Republican from Tennessee, made the news by admitting the obvious:

I do think there need to be some radical changes. The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful.

On Friday, the President's Committee on Arts and the Humanities all quit. In the first paragraph of their resignation letter, the first letter of each word spells RESIST. One of the member, Kal Penn, said this in an interview:

It became clear that the government became inoperative under this particular presidency. A lot of the work and the agencies have been frozen. There’s a big waste of taxpayer dollars. We had hope, but the president made comments that quite literally were in support of the domestic terrorists.

It’s one thing to say you want to serve the programs you were appointed to serve, regardless of politics, but after a certain point . . . we just don’t want our names attached to this in any way.

On Friday, the billionaire Carl Icahn quit serving as Trump's special advisor - apparently because Democrats were pointing out his conflicts of interest.

So the Trump team has been unraveling rapidly. Meanwhile, Trump's advisor Steve Bannon, who knew he was about to be fired, gave a fascinating interview in which he undercut a lot of Trump's recent moves. Notably:

There’s no military solution [to North Korea’s nuclear threats], forget it. Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don’t die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don’t know what you’re talking about, there’s no military solution here, they got us.

and

Ethno-nationalism—it's losers. It's a fringe element. I think the media plays it up too much, and we gotta help crush it, you know, uh, help crush it more. These guys are a collection of clowns.

He was fired on Friday.

A lot of people thought Steve Bannon was behind Trump's move to appeal to "ethno-nationalists" (also known as racists) like the ones who rallied in Charlottesville. It would be very interesting if that's not true. I don't really understand Bannon; perhaps he's just an "economic nationalist" as he seems to claim in the recent interview. If so, it makes this question all the more pressing: why did Trump shoot himself in the foot by not coming out and forcefully condemning neo-Nazis and the KKK?

One possibility is that he's a racist... but that doesn't fully explain it, because a simple sense of political survival is enough to keep most racist politicians in the US in line these days. They happily pass laws designed to make harder for black people to vote, etcetera, but still they have the sense to condemn the KKK when it's called for, since nowadays that's required if you're going win elections or even get anything done.

One possibility is that Trump is just stupid, but that doesn't explain it either.

One possibility is that Trump can't stand being forced to do anything, so after he knuckled under and dutifully read a statement against racism from a teleprompter on Monday, he became angry and couldn't resist doubling down on his original position on Tuesday.

This seems more plausible, but it doesn't answer why he had that position in the first place. Since when does not condemning neo-Nazis and the KKK seem like a good idea?

Here's one theory: Trump feels he's going to be pushed out of the presidency, and he wants some angry crowds with weapons to stick up for him when that day comes.

If that seems implausible, remember how he spoke at a rally of motorcycle gangs last year:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/donald-trump-to-speak-at-rolling-thunder-rally/

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/worldviews/wp/2016/06/01/how-the-loyal-support-of-biker-gangs-unites-trump-and-putin/

It would be good to discuss this in a rational polite way, but that's not easy. I find that moderating any discussion of Trump is a full-time job, and unpleasant too. So, as usual for posts on this subject, I won't enable comments. Too bad - people need to think about what is going on as events heat up. If you want to reshare this and manage your own discussion, please do.

Stock photo distributors must be squirming in fear. Researchers from Google have developed an algorithm that completely removes watermarks from images in a matter of seconds – and it works entirely automatically.

Photography professionals will often slap watermarks on their images to protect their copyrights and prevent people from using them without their permission. However, the researchers were able to identify a glaring error in this approach and exploit it to negate the visibility of watermarks altogether altogether.

ScienceCasts 、The 2017 Total Solar Eclipse 、。。
By science@nasa 、。。

On August 21, 2017, the shadow of the Moon will sweep across the U.S. landscape, transforming day to twilight .. In the surreal gloaming of an eclipse, the temperature drops, birds go silent, crickets begin to chirp, and blossoms start to close .. As this scene plays out across a 70-mile wide path of totality from coast to coast, a continent-spanning wave of instruments -- ranging from home made pinhole cameras and certified eclipse safety glasses to the most sophisticated telescopes in operation today – will be trained on the Eclipse Across America 、。。

Just before totality, a point of glistening sunlight is visible making the moon look like a diamond ring .. Then as that drop of sunlight shines through rugged valleys on the Moon’s limb, tiny points of light called "Baily's Beads" appear like a string of beads around the vanishing edge of the sun .. But best of all are the pearly white streamers that emanate all around the dark disk at totality 、。。

Scientists eagerly anticipate this eclipse for the unique science opportunities it provides 、。。

Alex Young, NASA’s Associate Director for Heliophysics at the Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, says, “This will be the first total eclipse to span the U.S. since 1918, and scientific instruments have come a long way.” 、。。

The event presents a perfect opportunity to shed light on phenomena such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, or CMEs -- billion-ton clouds of magnetized plasma ejected from the sun. To learn about their dynamics, researchers must study a region of the sun that reveals itself during an eclipse—the corona 、。。

“Solar telescopes can create artificial eclipses using disks called coronagraphs,” explains Young. “Unfortunately, man-made coronagraphs also block the sun’s inner corona where CME eruptions originate.” 、。。

Fortunately, during a total eclipse of the sun, the Moon makes a better coronagraph. At totality, the sun’s inner corona appears in clear detail 、。。

Totality lasts mere minutes at any one location, but the Citizen Citizen CATE Experiment will be positioning 68 identical telescopes across the country in the path of totality. The combined network will capture 93 minutes of images and will show changes in the solar atmosphere 、。。

Matt Penn, Astronomer at the National Solar Observatory in Tucson, Arizona says, “The telescopes will be operated by a variety of volunteers, ranging from middle school students to retired scientists, and everyone in between.” 、。。

Meanwhile, NASA planes will photograph the Sun, and a cadre of balloons will be floating near the edge of space to observe the eclipse .. You can watch too – live from the balloons on August 21 at eclipse.stream.live

“The terrain and weather are quite varied across the U.S., and the Moon’s shadow will briefly change the climate in each locale, sometimes with drastic drops in temperature within seconds to minutes.” 、。。

Young reminds everyone to be safe. Solar filters such as eclipse glasses are necessary to look at the sun directly .. If you’re in the narrow path of totality, you can safely remove your solar filter when the moon completely covers the sun .. However when the Moon moves off the center of the solar disk .. Even a little .. The sun’s blinding surface reappears and you should once again use your solar filter .. NASA has a whole web page devoted to safety tips: eclipse2017.nasa.gov/safety

Many people don’t know that the Moon’s orbit is slowly spiraling outward due to tidal forces. In about 600 million years the Moon will appear too small in the sky to fully cover the sun .. Every solar eclipse is counting down to the last one 、。。

Young says, “We live in a fortunate time.” 、。。
