I see Catholic comboxes are heating up over another commencement speaker. At the Bench, Greg Kandra picks it up from LSN, which gives its readers contacts at DePaul University for the registration of complaints. I’d love to sit down with … Continue reading
Space shuttle Enterprise flies over New York City this morning. Good feature and images at Universe Today. This ship never flew in space; it was the first one built and served as a test vehicle for the program that followed.
Two short and enjoyable reads this past week. Last night I finished Alone in the Universe. John Gribbin takes the reader through a careful tour–in turn: the galaxy, the sun, the solar system, the Earth, the Cambrian Explosion, and human … Continue reading
What do you string players make of the thought of utilizing spider silk for violin strings? BBC news bit and sample audio here. There is a species of spider known as “violin spiders,” (image, right) but Shigeyoshi Osaki used a … Continue reading

The movement of clouds is so beautiful from above. What’s underneath them, much less so, from the view on the ground.
One of the world’s most dangerous volcanoes could bury two-thirds of the continental US if 640000BC repeats itself. The new that the Yellowstone hot spot may be securely under the Rockies: I like that. Should we be nervous that the … Continue reading
I received a communication from the Newsy.com site, and a suggestion I link to their 160-second piece summing up major reaction to the 2010 Nobel Prize for Medicine. One thing that caught my ear was the assumption that a fertilized … Continue reading
I see the attempt to mock climatologists has had something of a reverse effect. Mark, too, has been taken in by the cute picture of a polar bear on an isolated oceanic ice chunk. (Not the real image on the … Continue reading
South Australia’s Non-Government Schools Registration Board says creationism can be taught, but not in science class. That strikes me as about right. The ruling that … … a science curriculum in a non-government school which is based on, espouses or … Continue reading
