A remarkable achievement in computing power and one that for the first time, brought to life a historical time-lapse of the Earth's surface.
Looking above at recent temperature anomalies, the jet stream has once again wobbled down into the US, bringing unusually cool but refreshing weather to much of the US as California and Alaska bake.

What's the rush on renewable clean energy? It's connect-the-dots time! Here's my graphic line of connecting dots: 1. Almost all scienti...
It has been over 45 years since the first Moon landing. Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins made a journey for the ages as the Apollo 11 mission rocketed humans to another world. But, what have we done lately?
We have made dozens of visits to the Planetarium in New York City's Museum of Natural History (we live just a few blocks away) and two years ago, made a trip to the Smithsonian's National Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. So our family's next logical excursion was a trip to the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando.

Looking above at recent temperature anomalies, much of the US is cooler than normal, but the eastern Pacific warm spot continues to prevent much rain from reaching California, which is hotter than normal.
How unusual has the weather been? No one event is "caused" by climate change, but global warming, which is predicted to increase unusual, extreme weather, is having a daily effect on weather, worldwide.

I realized how easily we immerse ourselves in our own disciplines and envelop ourselves in our own values, and that exiting these self-imposed and limiting confines is key to understanding and propelling ourselves toward any future -- especially the one we humans envision on Mars.
Until astronomers detect signs of life on Earth-like plants around Sun-like stars, or until SETI searches record an old TV show broadcast by a civilization circling another star, we will have to be satisfied with these tiny, fluffy space aliens.
I love Mars rovers and cool space stations as much as any baby boomer, but the harsh reality is that America cannot afford a space program whose mission is to boost national prestige or serve as a white-collar jobs program. To justify its existence NASA must drive the private sector forward in space, not the other way round.

Why does it take 3 years to develop a new car, when it shares 90% of its "DNA" with the previous model?
Life on Mars is inevitable. Now, such a statement may sound audacious, farfetched, and maybe even just a little bit crazy. It might be viewed as being just a wild prognostication about finding extraterrestrial microbial life on Mars - but it is based firmly in the realm of reality.
