For my Dutch friends ... This Sunday (and I would imagine for the next 12 Sundays) at 22:00 on National Geographic you'll see a great science program, Cosmos - A Spacetime Odyssey. This was originally shown in the US back in the 1980's and was hosted (and written) by Carl Sagan. This new presentation is a renewed program hosted by Neil Degrasse Tyson, the Director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City. I remember being glued to the TV set when this originally aired. This will be worth your time.
"There is no shame in not knowing. The problem arises when irrational thought and attendant behavior fill the vacuum left by ignorance.” ~Neil Degrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, science popularizer, and director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City, awarded the American Humanist Association’s Isaac Asimov Science Award in 2009, _The Sky Is Not The Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist_
My step-mom, Cicely Aikman Scherer, died on December 6th -only 11 days after Dad. We miss her and are shell-shocked. Her Memorial is Sunday, December 15th at 2:30 PM at Valley Cares... Cicely Aikman Scherer 1923-2013 Cicely Aikman Scherer died at Valley Cares in Townshend, Vermont, on December 6, 2013, eleven days after her husband Fred F. Scherer passed away. Born on June 4, 1923 in El Paso, TX, she was the oldest of three children of Duncan and Helen (Wyman) Aikman. She attended the University of Chicago, but left in her sophomore year and went to New York City to study under Morris Kantor at the Art Students League, between 1942-1946. Cicely reflected, “This was a serious art education -our only regret as students was that due to World War II, we could not go to Europe, in particular to Paris to see firsthand the works of Picasso and Matisse.” At the League she met her first husband, painter Paul Breslin. Cicely was an avid traveler. She went to Florence, Italy by boat with her two-year-old son, P ...
Sarcasm... I love this time of year... traditionally technology goes on a bender telling people to upgrade so they can empty their warehouses of all the old stuff so the first week of January the bring out the new stuff! More sarcasm... I love black Friday... my family will like this... many years ago (53 if you are wondering),my wonderful sister (Barbara) took me into New York City. It was black Friday as we now call it. We went to the museum of Natural History and Hayden planetarium... my 2 most favorite places in NYC by the way. Then we went to Maceys department store... and Gimbels...imagine, if you will... a 10 ft x 10 foot room with about 75 people...now think about a 10,000 square ft building with about 75,000 people jammed in screaming, yelling and pushing me (an impressionable kid like me) around... well needless to say I won't be going back there for a while... although I still do make the effort to call my sister at Christmas time. WHAT???More sarcasm?... I love to shop for my clothes this tim ...
The Company of the Discouraged The company of the discouraged is a very noble company. Not too long ago, the Hayden Planetarium in New York City issued an invitation to all those who were interested in applying to be a part of the crew on the first journey to another planet. Eighteen thousand people applied. They gave the applications to a panel of psychologists, who examined them thoroughly and came to the conclusion that in the vast majority of incidents, those who applied did so because they were discouraged with their lives here and hoped they could find a new life somewhere else. —Bruce Thielemann, “Dealing with Discouragement,” John 10:10b (NLT) Jesus said... "My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life."
Saw the new space show today Given Dr Neil Degrasse Tyson . The Dark Universe! Awesome! It starts November 2 nd at The Hayden Planetarium in New York City!
Further to Pending Impact … Somewhere out there in the cosmos, odds are there's a big asteroid with our name on it—one that threatens not just to give Earth a close shave but actually to strike our planet. Some are due since Tunguska impact in Siberia. If that sounds like hyperbole, consider this: experts say there are about a million near-Earth asteroids that are large enough to substantially damage or destroy a major city. NASA's Asteroid Watch, part of the agency's Near Earth Object Program, has its eye on more than 1,400 potentially dangerous space rocks. Is there anything we can do to safeguard our planet--and ourselves--from such an asteroid strike? That's the question Dr. Neil Degrasse Tyson, director of the New York City's Hayden Planetarium, is exploring today in a panel discussion being held at the American Museum of Natural History. For the talk, the celebrated astrophysicist will be joined by five members of the Association of Space Explorers' (ASE) Near Earth Objects Committee, including ...

Ever wonder where the gold in your wedding ring came we ask Neil Degrasse Tyson, director of New York City's Hayden Planetarium, to explain the history of the rare element. In the Beginning According to Tyson, author of Death by Black Hole and Other Cosmic Quandries, all gold on Earth started out in the center of a star; he says stars are "in the business of cosmic alchemy." When the universe began, there were only two kinds of atoms: hydrogen, which has one proton, and helium, which has two protons. The problem was that hydrogen and helium couldn't combine to make a new kind of atom of three, four or five protons. The two atoms resisted each other because they were the same charge. Unless, of course, it got very, very hot. How much heat would it take to get two protons to sit together? About 10 million degrees, Tyson says. And that's where stars come in. Fiery Fusion Stars like our sun are so hot that protons collide with such force and have no choice but to combine. It's called fusion. Inside the sun ...

New Yorkers will be treated to a special sight tonight: Today is one of two days a year when the setting sun aligns perfectly with Manhattan's street grid. As the sun sets on the Big Apple, it will light up both the north and south sides of every cross street. The event has been dubbed "Manhattanhenge" for the way it turns New York City into a Stonehenge-like sun dial. The sun sets perfectly in line with the Manhattan street grid twice a year, explains astrophysicist Neil Degrasse Tyson on the Hayden Planetarium website. Here are the best viewing times for Manhattanhenge 2012: May 29 at 8:17 p.m. EDT July 12 at 8:25 p.m. EDT There are two other days when the sun isn't perfectly aligned with the grid, but still puts on a show. On these two days, May 30 and July 11 this year, you see a full sun sitting on the horizon when looking down the cross streets, rather than the half orb. Here are the best times to catch the full sun setting on New York City: May 30 at 8:16 p.m. EDT July 11 at 8:24 p.m. EDT The best ...
