Cool Shit 7/23

Sometimes, it's not only ok to screw up, it's beneficial. Especially in science. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to mix some of these random chemicals together to see what happens.

Carl Sagan used to host a show called Cosmos. And it was awesome. Well, he's dead, but that doesn't mean we can't bring back the show and give hosting duties to Neil Degrasse Tyson!

Here's a nice thought...missing your parents? Take a quick look at how many times you're most likely see them before they die.

I know it sounds silly, but light pollution is a significant problem. And one that will probably have more psychological effects (and therefore more personal effects on the individual than other forms of pollution) than we know about right now.

So how did the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon become such a great place to go white water rafting? And who were the people that were the first to do it?
