Climate.nasa. The world seems smaller to Steve Wofsy than it used to.


He’s the lead scientist for NASA’s Atmospheric Tomography (ATom) mission, an airborne mission to survey the gases on the world’s atmosphere that has just finished up a round-the-world flight. I met with Steve in February in Christchurch, New Zealand, at a hotel an easy ten-minute walk from the international airport. The proximity was key because that's where NASA's DC-8 research plane sat amid large warehouse-sized hangars and equipment on a section of the airport run by the U.S. National Science Foundation for research expeditions to Antarctica. Creative Chemistry - fun activities, worksheets, games and revision quizzes. Science Lesson Plans. CREativity in Science and Technology - CREST — The Learner's Way. Grant Wiggins writing for te@chthough deals with this problem in an article titled 'Experiential Learning: Just Because It’s Hands-On Doesn’t Mean It’s Minds-On’.

CREativity in Science and Technology - CREST — The Learner's Way

Grant asks students three questions that reveal the level to which they are cognitively engaged with the task at hand; What are you doing? Why are you doing it? And What does this help you do that’s important? How many students if asked these questions would reply that they are following the steps indicated and that they need to follow the steps to complete the task? Grant’s full article is worth reading and can be found on his blog, ‘Granted, and. . .' The next level is a little more challenging and is possibly the first step towards open ended scientific inquiry. A simple example of ‘guided discovery’ was shared with a group of scientists and teachers at a recent CSIRO ‘Scientists in Schools’ event. An essential element of this approach is the inclusion of elements of creativity.

Exoplanet Exploration: Planets Beyond our Solar System: Exoplanets 101

As NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope science team was wrapping up a 10-day trial run, they saw something that bordered on the unbelievable: the telescope's first detection of a rocky, Earth-sized world outside our solar system. The planet, a hot, heavy world dubbed Kepler 10b, would be among the early nuggets in a coming gold rush of exoplanet discovery—taking us from a handful of planets confirmed to be in orbit around other stars to more than 3,300 today, all in the space of two decades.

Thousands more candidate planets found by Kepler await confirmation. Explore Science. The Museum of Science, Art and Human Perception. Feed the Dingo: An Ecosystem Game. Future Astronauts - Virgin Galactic. For centuries, humans all around the world have dreamed of flying to space.

Future Astronauts - Virgin Galactic

For decades, people have been able to watch as others actually made those journeys, heroically opening a new frontier. Now, at last, space travel is open to all of us. It still requires time, resources, and effort, but for the first time in history, space exploration is a possibility for everyone who dares to dream of it. The global group of Virgin Galactic Future Astronauts in many ways represents the most exciting club on Earth. Our Future Astronauts come from more than 50 nations around the world.
