Being a fan of Copernicus and Galileo, I understand well how it must feel to an author of a text book to have his work banned/destroyed by the political and religious leaders of the day. So for those of you taking AP Biology (and hope to pass the [...]

The twitter pics posted by Reid Wiseman (@atro_reid) from high above Earth are just amazing, and I saw one shot in particular from earlier in the week that dove-tails nicely with the final release (Sunday) of the 5th IPCC report (WG3 here). The IPCC [...]

It always comes back to Yosemite. I travel many places, explore many mountains, see the most incredible geology, but the circle of my life always involves a valley of granite in the Sierra Nevada. I was thinking about why this afternoon during a bit [...]
