For astronomy geeks--Pioneer heat anomaly back-and-forth

For astronomy geeks--Pioneer heat anomaly back-and-forth | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

R.H. from the United States writes:

 

"Question for Dr. Humphreys—Your cosmology suggests an original solution to the “pioneer anomaly”, but last year it was reported that it was solved without invoking a change in physics. It seems interesting to me that it took such a long time to solve something with such a seemingly obvious answer as the effects of heat. At any rate, I haven’t heard of any responses from creationists, which might imply that it’s agreed upon universally. But, I have to ask, is it a satisfactory answer, or is it still a useful argument for creation?"

NASA Earth Observatory's Top 10 Most Popular Images of 2012

NASA Earth Observatory's Top 10 Most Popular Images of 2012 | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

"Whether it was retreating ice, super storms, wildfires, or the simple changing of the seasons there was no shortage of fascinating, beautiful, and occasionally ominous imagery in 2012. Throughout the year, we published more than 600 images. Of those, the ten most popular (based on the number of page views) are below."

 

The above image is City Lights of the United States.  What's interesting to me here is the dark areas--who'd have thunk there was an area with so little habitation on the GA-FL border?  I'm presuming that's the Okefenokee swamp area.  Much of the Appalachian mountain chain is underlit as well, relative to its borders.  And look at that dark blob creeping up from southern Florida.  The state really is empty in its middle.

Curious About Life: Interview with Jennifer Stern

Curious About Life: Interview with Jennifer Stern | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

"Jennifer Stern is using the Sample Analysis at Mars instrument to search Martian rocks for signs of processes that might not be geological. In this image, Stern stands in front of a commercial laboratory instrument. Credit: NASA"

 

Interesting interview about the kinds of geological and chemical experimentation that NASA is doing on Mars.  Note the promo at the end about how NASA's (very expensive) research is being translated into other venues here on earth.

The Best Creation Science Updates of 2012: Space Sciences

The Best Creation Science Updates of 2012: Space Sciences | Conformable Contacts | Scoop.it

Brian Thomas' 2012 astronomy wrap-up:

 

"Secular astronomers consistently say that heavenly features formed naturally, disregarding the One who said, "I am the LORD that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by myself." This year brought its share of discoveries that confirm biblical creation's contention that God made the heavens supernaturally and recently."
