I'm giving up writing at Medium

I've been seriously thinking about moving to Ghost or Medium for writing. Ghost uses Markdown, which I like is handy for when I write in StackEdit. io. Medium has a very simple interface. It's not customisable, but the flip side of that is that you don't waste time trying to customise it. I gave Medium a…

Ancient Martian Life May Be Preserved in Glass

When large asteroids or comets strike the Earth — as they have countless times throughout ourĀplanet's history — the energy released in the eventĀcreates an enormous amount of heat, enough to briefly melt rock and soil at the impact site. That moltenĀmaterial quickly cools, trapping organic material and bits of plants and preserving them inside […]

Carnival of Space #350

Greetings, space-lovers! We're happy to once again host the Carnival of Space, your weekly roundup of the space and astronomy blogosphere. We'll start with the big exoplanet news of the week: Kepler 186f was announced with its planetary brethren as an Earth-sized planet within the “Goldilocks Zone” of its host M-dwarf star. Carolyn Collins Peterson covers this story on The Spacewriter's Ramblings, adding that if it IS watery world (which e don't know yet) that it would be quite hopef

5 Years On Chemotherapy Works

... wrote someone out of my will today. It was five years ago I had chemotherapy for cancer. It should have been six, but I held off getting a diagnosis because I was in the last year of my PhD and helping out with elderly relatives. I wasn't strictly in denial about having cancer, but…

The Truth is Out There … isn’t it?

Its disconcerting reading/watching the news from Ukraine. Not just because of the fear of decades of war to come, but the temptation to slide into relativism. Statements and stories from various quarters vary from the vaguely inconsistent to the baldly contradictory. Its tempting to think “well, they are all lying”, or “hmm.. it all depends […]

... attended a funeral today for a woman i did not know well, but who made a strong impression on me. i work with her husband. the times i saw them together i was struck by how much they adored each other. in many photos i've seen of the two of them, she touched his face in a noticeable, natural way. she will be missed. in her honor i share this poem by walt whitman, on the beach at night.

Concrete Science Epiphanies

The title is a kinda cultural reference to Musique Concrete, don't you know. Maybe should be read in French.Ā Sea-onss kon-krett. Pretentious, Moi? Anyhoo. I have always loved that moment when Jane Public looks through a real telescope and sees the rings of Saturn. Suddenly its real. Not on TV. Seen with her own eyes. […]

Impact!!!

... thought maybe a Bruce Willis style title was needed. Well, if I'd written “A report on an RCUK workshop I attended concerning possible adjustments to the Pathways to Impact process” its just possible there might not have been so many click-throughs.

dear blog

dear blog,i do think about you, sweet blog. i think about things i'd like to write and post and share and comment on, and then i cant seem to find the time. it's some combination of my new(ish) job, that has me doing outreachy type things for the AAO during my days, and rekindling a couple old hobbies, that has taken my attention away from you. i'll try to do better. i want to do better. in fact, i want to move you to a different host and redesign your look

Restart Miscellany

Some chums complained I have written no blog posts for about eight million years. I blame teaching. Anyway. Lets see. How do you do this thing? Scrapes off rust. Here are a few bits. (1) At last the STFC Programmatic Review emerges!!! Get it here. I have tried to wade through it, but it looks […]
