Exo-App

The Kepler Space Telescope has discovered a slew of extra-solar planets or exo-planets since it began focusing its powerful lens on the stars three years ago. Some of the new planets are super-weird, potentially made of solid diamond, while others may be more Earth-like in habitability around their parent stars. Now there is an application has been developed so that anyone can follow the Kepler discoveries. Kepler Exo-planet (credit: NASA-Ames) The “exo-app”, called the Kepler ...

Getting Stuck

Years ago I worked on a reforestation planning program in Kenya. Along with a humorous Danish forester, Gunnar Poulson, we travelled around the semi-arid and desert parts of the country looking for suitable sites to establish tree nurseries. Next to the border of Somalia we got stuck in the middle of a dry river bed and were rescued by two teenage herders, stark naked except for their flip-flops and walking sticks. I was reminded of all of this while reading about the similar travails of a ...

Tungurahua Erupts

When the Tungurahua volcano erupts, it does so in a spectacular manner. Tungurahua Volcano eruption (credit: NASA/Taschler) An image captured by an adventure photographer, shows lava pouring down the 5,000 meter (~15,000 feet) high peak in the Cordillera Oriental in Ecuador. An ash cloud is ejected to the side, white clouds flow around the summit, and stars shine above. A massive glacier once existed on the summit but melted away after the increase of volcanic activity in 1999. Over ...

Breaking the Chain

Ecological food webs are intricate, remain stable due to their biological complexity, but can be easily disrupted if over stressed. Some the most delicate food webs exist in the oceans where forage fish are the foundation for all life higher up the chain. Forage fish feeding structures nourish sea birds, tuna, penguins, and marine mammals like whales and dolphins worldwide. Often called “trash fish” or “bait fish” small fish species like krill, menhaden, and anchovies are essential to the ...
