From : Earth & Sky Podcast
March 8, 2009. Today, Earth swings between the sun and Saturn. This is Saturn’s yearly opposition to the sun. At opposition, Saturn rises in the east as the sun sets in the west, and climbs highest in the sky at midnight when the sun is below our feet.

Creation Astronomy Propaganda Debunked 06

Tue, 2008-11-25 02:22

From : Top Rated
Hey YouTube, where the hell is the HQ version!? Seriously, Red Planet was just awful. A few clarifications: Liquid water on the surface of Mars is an issue, because the low atmospheric pressure allows it to boil away within a few hours. The features at Cydonia Mensae are absolutely *NOT* artificial. They are perfectly consistent with well documented geological processes. The smiley crater is called Galle crater (named for J.G. Galle.) Yes, I'm aware of the controversy over whether or not water or dry landslides are responsible for Martian gullies - the point I'm making is that in attempting to study these features, scientists have produced numerical models proving that liquid water could have been involved (and is not impossible, as Spike stated.) Mars lost its magnetic field because a Giant, Magnetic Field-Eating Space Duck popped by for a snack in May, 1337. The inhabitants at the time were single-celled, and thus hadn't really developed the necessary military strategy to combat gargantuan space-faring birds.

Death from the Skies: the End of the World?

Mon, 2008-11-24 09:49

From : The Chris Pirillo Show
Add to iTunes | Add to YouTube | Add to Google | RSS Feed Death from the Skies is an aptly titled book. It s written by my good friend Dr. Phil Plait, otherwise known as the Bad Astronomer. It was written to explain all of the ways the World might end scientifically speaking. Plait, an astronomer and author of the popular Web site, presents in loving detail the many, many ways the human race could die, from temperature extremes and poisonous atmosphere to asteroid impacts and supernovae explosions. Such a state of destruction existed some 65 million years ago, when a giant meteoroid struck Earth, sending up so much flaming debris that the whole planet caught fire and the dinosaurs were wiped out. Solar flare activity could bring on another Ice Age. Worse yet would be a gamma ray burster, a collapsed star whose radiation would be comparable to detonating a one-megaton nuclear bomb over every square mile of the planet. Plait discusses insatiable black holes, the death of the Sun and cannibal galaxies—including our own. Balancing his doomsday scenarios with enthusiastic and clear explanations of the science behind each, Plait offers a surprisingly educational and enjoyable astronomical horror show, including a table listing the extremely low odds of each event occurring. He gives readers a good scare, and then puts it in context. I knew right away when Phil got the contract to write this book. He was extremely excited about this. We met back when I was hosting Call for Help, and we hit it off immediately. We have the same sense of humor, and he is just hilarious! If you think this is just some boring science book you have another thing coming. I just started reading the book, and I m looking forward to getting through it all. I can t imagine there could be any better book on this subject. From a purely scientific standpoint, Dr. Plait knows his stuff. Realistically, the World could end. And death could come from the skies. Make sure you check this book out, educate yourself, and have some laughs along the way. Xfactor-Profits Formula. G7 Forex Trading System. Bet-Science.

AWA: First Contact! November 24 2008

Mon, 2008-11-24 09:00

From : Are We Alone? - SETI Science and Skepticism
From human settlers to alien visitors - when one society meets another, the results can be messy. The Jamestown settlement may have kicked off the colonization of the New World. But, you'll hear how it also left an indelible mark on its ecosystem and the human landscape. Plus, why the Galapagos Islands haven't been the same since their most celebrated visitor set foot on their rocky shores more than a century ago. Also: how a spider led the re-population of Krakatau after a devastating volcanic eruption... the "raining" threat of alien microbes... and one man's emergency plan for when Mars attacks. Guests: Charles C. Mann - author and journalist. His article "America Found and Lost" is in the May issue of National Geographic Magazine Travis Taylor - author of An Introduction to Planetary Defense: A Study of Modern Warfare Applied to Extraterrestrial Invasion Robert Whittaker - Professor of Biogeography at the University of Oxford John Rummel - Senior Scientist for Astrobiology at NASA Timothy Silcott - Director for Information and Development for the Charles Darwin Foundation based in Puerto Ayora, Galapagos Islands
