Today’s put up is the 1,000th publish on this blog since its founding a number of years ago! Woohoo!!! I ought to cease now, right? 🙂 No approach! I love scripting this blog and sharing science and parenting with others. I have no intention to cease now.
You may not have heard, but probably the most well-known NASA missions, Cassini, is coming to an end. The Cassini spacecraft mission to Saturn first started in growth in the 1980s and launch from Earth to Saturn in 1997, entering Saturn’s orbit in 2004. For the final 12 years Cassini has offered astronomers on Earth a treasure trove of data to reply questions on Saturn, Saturn’s moons, and Saturn’s rings. Much of what we all know on Saturn today is a direct result of this mission. In addition, a probe, Huygens, was dropped onto the surface of one in all Saturn’s moons, Titan, in 2005. This probe was a success, touchdown on the floor and taking a number of surface pictures, together with the one beneath.
I’ll probably be saying this quite a bit in the coming weeks, however is there hope for a future on this planet? I’ve all the time mentioned sure prior to now but I do not know anymore. I grew up LOVING science! I liked learning new things and there’s so much to study in science. But this constant assault on science is demoralizing. I’ll proceed to combat, however it is harder to see hope for the future of life on this planet as each day goes by and the attack on science will increase. I have no idea what Galileo felt in the early 1600s when the Catholic Church arrested him for daring to share science, however I have to suppose it felt a bit like this. At what level are scientists arrested for sharing science on this country? It seems loopy, however then once more, climate change has been wiped clean from the White House. Arresting scientists for sharing science no longer seems loopy to me.
My oldest daughter recently turned 10 and as a substitute of a standard birthday celebration she requested to invite a couple of of her closest buddies to the opening displaying of Beauty and the Beast. We purchased tickets early and went to the very first displaying on the theater in our space. Fortunately she was on Spring Break so though it was a week night, it wasn’t a school evening. We let our youthful daughter invite a buddy too so she she had a friend to take a seat with. In complete it was my spouse, myself, eight ladies ranging in age from six to 10 years, and a few our buddies. Yikes! The excellent news is all of them had fun, no one was hurt (popcorn machine malfunction???), and we didn’t lose anyone!
If you’ve questions on climate change or aren’t certain how to answer someone attempting to debunk climate change, then undoubtedly try Skeptical Science. It’s quite likely you will discover your query answered right here. Snow is nothing more than a big assortment of ice crystals. To get ice crystals to stay (pack) together, the crystals have to soften. On a day when the temperature exterior is hotter and the sun is out, the snow on the ground will possible be melting somewhat. This makes it easy to seize a handful of snow and pack it together in a snowball. However, when it’s colder out, the ice crystals will not be melting and the snow would not stick together.
