  • http://www.flickr.com/photos/misplacedpom/2762273463/ 365.61 by misplacedpom. A blank autorad, a sure fire way to ruin the day. My face doesn&apos;t really show it but I am so pissed right now, science has far too few eureka moments and far too many &amp;quot;WTF, I&apos;m a dumbass&amp;quot; moments. And I hate using freaking radioactivity, especially when at the end of it my sample isn&apos;t freaking radioactive! I put myself at risk for mutant babies* and I don&apos;t even get a single tiny band on my autorad?! Bollocks. For FGR: Aren&apos;t we all nerds? ETA: Did you all hear that? The echoing sound of my forehead slap as I realised my mistake? I have to do a little experiment to figure out whether I&apos;m right or not but hottdamnit, I&apos;m dumb sometimes. http://www.flickr.com/photos/misplacedpom/2762273463/ *Not really, all necessary precautions were taken to prevent any future X-men-like offspring.
  • Made to Stick – Chip Heath &amp; Dan Heath – Curiosity Gap Cialdini, social psychologist, Arizona State – good science communication often starts with a mystery How can we account for what is perhaps the most spectacular planetary feature in our Solar System, the rings of Saturn? There’s nothing else like them. What are the rings of Saturn made of anyway? … How could three internationally acclaimed groups of scientists come to wholly different conclusions on the answer? … One at Cambridge University, proclaimed they were gas; another group, at MIT, was convicned they were made up of dust particles; while the third, at Cal Tech, insisted they were comprised of ice crystals. How could this be, after all, each group was looking at the same thing, right? So, what was the answer? (pursued promising leads, hit dead ends, chased clues – eventually, after months of effort, there was a breakthrough. Caldini says, “Do you know what the answer was at the end of twenty pages? Dust. Dust. Actually, ice-covered dust, which accounts for some of the confusion. Now, I don’t care about dust, and the makeup of the rings of Saturn is entirely irrelevant to my life. But that writer had me turning pages like a speed-reader.”

But that writer had me turning pages like a speed-reader.” What Are Saturn&apos;s Rings Made of?Saturn&apos;s rings are composed of small chunks of ice individually orbiting Saturn. We know that orbiting chunks form the rings because their Doppler shift gives us their speed. The speed is correct for individual particles orbiting Saturn.Reflecting about 80% of the light that strikes them, the brightness of Saturn&apos;s rings tells us that they are chunks of ice rather than rock. The chunks of ice are as large as a few dozen meters down to less than a millimeter.Read more; http://solar-system-astronomy.suite101.com/article.cfm/saturns_ring_system#ixzz0LuBJ90Oa
