Call-To-Action

Ever wonder what happens to your Globe at Night measurements? Scientists and citizen-scientists are using them in a variety of projects, most of which need multiple data points at the same location over time.This map shows 5,000 locations on Earth where an observation has been made but there hasn’t been a new one in the last five years. Do you or a friend live near one of these points? Help us out by making an observation there! And while you are at it, take a measurement where none have been taken yet! (See the map for 2015 and zoom in to your location to see where data was taken in 2015.)

jerry100's curator insight, March 10, 2016 8:38 AM

Actually, this makes a lot of sense. Communications technology and digital processing have reached the level where this kind of project is feasible.  The major cost would be for the launch vehicle and standby instruments in case of launch failure.  A good site would be Malapert Mountain at the South Pole of the Moon.  Another idea would be to place a telescope in an Earth orbit similar to what is being done for the International Space Station.  Both of these plans would remove telescopes from areas of "cultural or religious sensitivity."  Aloha, Russ.

Lab4U - Transform your smartphone into a lab in your pocket. | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
Lab4U provides a platform that enables hands-on lab experiences through mobile devices, delivering low-cost solutions for Science Education

 

Description by EdSurge:

 

"Turn your smartphone into a sensor for physics experiments. The app uses the accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers built into smartphones to measure, graph and analyze physical properties and their changes. Students and teachers can export the data. A mere phone becomes a piece of equipment for basic physics labs. Privacy flag: Lab 4 Physics may collect personally identifiable information, though it is possible to use the app anonymously with some functions inhibited. Lab 4 Physics does not share information with third parties without user permission."

If there is one thing that the modern political order can't stand it is letting unclaimed land remain unclaimed...even if it covered in frozen ice.
