I was hoping the folks at Sixty Symbols would do something on this! For those who are intrigued about the biggest scientific mystery of the year, this is a must watch video. Two UK astrophysicists at the Univ. of Nottingham talk about the possibilities, and their reaction to the news that neutrinos might be exceeding light speed. Did you hear about the neutrino supercomputer that finished an infinite loop 3.8 …

A major coronal mass ejection has occurred on the sun and while it will only glance Earth, it is big enough to have caused a major warning from NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center. This is called a G3 warning and that means it’s a biggy. From NOAA SWPC: A strong Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) has been observed and is partially-directed at Earth. The Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) has issued …

Mark Spencer (one of my fellow board members at Sc-Quest science museum) was flying back from Jackson, MS on August 3rd when he captured this amazing video. The flash rate in this storm is incredible, and it’s likely a severe storm. These cells produced 70 mph winds across North Alabama later on that produced extensive damage and power outages. The video was taken with night vision cameras and it’s good …

Famed astrophysicist Neil de Grasse Tyson knows how to put things into perspective and is one of the world’s best champions of science. This video is a must watch. Hat tip to Steve Cowing at NASA Watch for this. (Note: I changed the name of this post- sorry for any confusion)
