NASA-Produced Damage Maps May Aid Mexico Quake Response

NASA-Produced Damage Maps May Aid Mexico Quake Response | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

To assist in the disaster response efforts, scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Caltech, both in Pasadena, California, obtained and used before-and-after interferometric synthetic aperture radar (InSAR) satellite imagery of areas of Central Mexico, including Mexico City, affected by the quake, to identify areas of damage and produce what is known as a Damage Proxy Map. The imagery -- acquired before the quake on Sept. 8, and again on Sept. 20, 2017, just 6-1/2 hours after the earthquake -- is from the radar instrument on the Copernicus Sentinel-1A and Sentinel 1-B satellites operated by the European Space Agency. The map, which was provided to Mexican authorities on Sept. 20, may be viewed and downloaded in full resolution at:

There’s No Such Thing as Being Bad at Math: How Neuroscience Is Changing the Equation - EdSurge News

There’s No Such Thing as Being Bad at Math: How Neuroscience Is Changing the Equation - EdSurge News | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Imagine a parent telling a child, “I’m just not a reading person.” Sounds odd, doesn’t it? Now reread the same cartoon, substituting “math” for “reading.” Suddenly it doesn’t seem so absurd. But it should!

As a society ever more reliant on technology and STEM-based careers, we must shatter the myth that math skill is inborn and reinforce that it is the result of intention and practice.
It’s common to hear well educated adults declare themselves “not a math person,” sometimes proudly. Indeed, many people of all ages believe that mathematical ability is something you are either born with or not, rather than something to be mastered with focused effort. This belief is wrong. What’s more, it’s harmful to kids as they have their first experiences learning math; the attitude that “I can’t learn math” quickly becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. As a society ever more reliant on technology and STEM-based careers, we must shatter the myth that math skill is inborn and reinforce that it is the result of intention and practice. Reforming these perceptions needs to be a priority for teachers, parents, and creators of new learning tools that align to the way these digital-savvy students learn.

Weird bright blog of gas spotted in deep space baffles astronomers

Weird bright blog of gas spotted in deep space baffles astronomers | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
ELANs are thought to be part of the fiber connecting galaxies in a vast cosmic web. Their remarkable shining light has previously been attributed to intense radiation from quasars. However this newly-discovered ELAN, named MAMMOTH-1 is the first not to be associated with a visible quasar. Scientists say it’s not clear what is causing the hydrogen gas to emit Lyman-alpha radiation.
