Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit physicist, inventor and scientific instrument maker was born in 1686.

He created the temperature scale that bears his name in 1724. He set the zero point of his scale at the temperature of a mixture of ice, water, and ammonium chloride, a freezing brine solution. He established 32°F as the freezing point of water and 212°F as the boiling point of water at standard atmospheric pressure. He also invented the mercury-in-glass thermometer.

The newly detected 51-Sagittids shower reported last year from Global Meteor Network observations was visible in single night CAMS ( http://cams.seti.org/ ) data for May 14/15, 2024. The shower appears to be a weak annual shower from a yet-to-be-discovered long-period comet. The shower was also detected by CAMS in prior years.

Sorry to learn of the passing of Prof. Alan Waggoner here in a couple of days ago.
He was an all round terrific person, besides being a great scientist. He developed the Cyanine dyes (Cy3 Cy5 and others in the series) that had a significant impact on biological , in the 1990s

An is here:

Here's a pic I took (in 2018) of the licence plate that used to be in the Molecular Biosensors Imaging Center

Picture of Alan Wagonner, with his warm smile (I don't think I've ever seen him not smiling like this or more)

We have the first science images from the ESA’s Euclid telescope and they are STUNNING. Euclid can take detailed photos with a wide field of view. Here’s a breakdown of what you’re looking at and why it’s important.

TODAY, May 23, 2:30 PM PDT

The InVADER project researches ways to improve life detection in ocean worlds by studying alien worlds in Earth’s deep ocean. Join Beth Johnson as she chats with Dr. Bonnie Teece about her initial analysis of ocean-floor microbial traps and what they could mean for our search for life beyond Earth, especially involving ocean worlds like Europa and Enceladus.

In a groundbreaking study from 2017, Chatard et al found social comparison to be subliminal.

In the study women were shown images of thin women or heavy women at sub-conscious threshold viewing times of less than 20 milliseconds.

Even when they consciously didn’t register seeing them and weren’t able to make the comparison, the study found feeling good or bad about their bodies still consistently affected.

PRESS RELEASE: https://www.seti.org/franck-marchis-receives-2024-carl-sagan-center-directors-award-drake-awards-ceremony

Dr. Franck Marchis, a planetary astronomer known for research on exoplanets and asteroids with moons, was awarded the Carl Sagan Center Director's Award. Marchis co-founded and is Chief Scientific Officer for Unistellar, fostering a global community of over 12,000 citizen astronomers. The evening also recognized Reed Spurling with the Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Award of Excellence.

UC Santa Cruz researchers contributed to new studies out this week that enhance our understanding of exoplanets.

The first catalogs 126 exoplanets discovered detailing diverse planet types.

A second set, investigates "puffy" exoplanets like WASP-107b attributing their puffiness to tidal heating.

This research broadens our knowledge of exoplanet characteristics and formation.

I love serendipitous art!

ESA's Euclid space telescope is designed to map dark matter and dark energy across the universe. But as it is getting started, Euclid is also sending back gorgeous cosmic snapshots.


Euclid’s image of galaxy cluster Abell 2390 reveals more than 50 000 galaxies and shows a beautiful display of gravitational lensing, depicting giant curved arcs on the sky – some of which are actually multiple views of the same distant object. Euclid will use lensing (where the light travelling to us from distant galaxies is bent and distorted by gravity) as a key technique for exploring the dark Universe, indirectly measuring the amount and distribution of dark matter both in galaxy clusters and elsewhere. Euclid scientists are also studying how the masses and numbers of galaxy clusters on the sky have changed over time, revealing more about the history and evolution of the Universe.
Here, Euclid captures galaxies evolving and merging ‘in action’ in the Dorado galaxy group, with beautiful tidal tails and shells seen as a result of ongoing interactions. Scientists are using this dataset to study how galaxies evolve, to improve our models of cosmic history and understand how galaxies form within halos of dark matter. This image showcases Euclid’s versatility: a wide array of galaxies is visible here, from very bright to very faint. Thanks to Euclid’s unique combination of large field-of-view, remarkable depth, and high spatial resolution, it can capture tiny (star clusters), wider (galaxy cores) and extended (tidal tails) features all in one frame. Scientists are also seeking distant individual clusters of stars known as globular clusters to trace their galactic history and dynamics.
In this image Euclid showcases NGC 6744, an archetype of the kind of galaxy currently forming most of the stars in the local Universe. Euclid’s large field-of-view covers the entire galaxy, capturing not only spiral structure on larger scales but also exquisite detail on small spatial scales. This includes feather-like lanes of dust emerging as ‘spurs’ from the spiral arms, shown here with incredible clarity. Scientists are using this dataset to understand how dust and gas are linked to star formation; map how different star populations are distributed throughout galaxies and where stars are currently forming; and unravel the physics behind the structure of spiral galaxies, something that is still not fully understood after decades of study.
