It's the Astronomy Online non-Blog, or un-Blog.
Everyone has a blog now and since I am no follower of trends, I decided to merge the blog with the website. And I don't want to neglect the website in favor of posting on the blog.
These are the pages that were on the blog of old:
- Archive (Index of Pages)
- Current Trends
- Soho Live
Google Maps - Mars
Google Maps - Moon
HiRISE - MRO Imaging
Software for the Mac
Starry Night Online
Thank you for visiting!
Astronomy Online recognized by Science Magazine's Netwatch:
Astronomy Online is featured in this weeks Science Magazine's Netwatch. The article can be found online or inside the June 30, 2006 issue of Science Magazine.
When astronomers talk about the Jeans length, they aren't referring to inseams. The term describes how small an interstellar hydrogen cloud can become before it begins to condense, one of the criteria for new star formation. Students keen to learn more about stellar birth or a host of other topics in space science should plot a course for Astronomy Online. The encyclopedia comes from amateur astronomer Ricky Leon Murphy, whose day job at Stanford University Hospital entails photographing the interior of the eye. You'll find brief illustrated chapters on topics such as the structure of the solar system and the clustering of galaxies, along with guest contributions. Readers who just want to stargaze can flip through the gallery, which showcases photos such as a stunner of the Iris nebula, a swirl of dust lit by a sizzling young star.
I think this is a greater honor than being nominated for a Webby Award. My thanks to everyone at the AAAS and Science Magazine.
