Source: Wikimedia Commons Jeffrey Epstein was put on suicide watch last month. Then he was taken off, and found dead in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in New York. It wasn’t the first time a sexual predator has been put on suicide watch. And it won't be the last. Epstein’s contact list was full of the rich and famous.

The diagram compares the planets of the inner solar system to Kepler-62 Source: By NASA Ames/JPL-Caltech - http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/kepler/news/kepler-62-kepler-69.html, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=25666606 In galaxies near enough to our own there could be dozens of earth-like planets. Amongst these exoplanets there exist at least two “ocean planets”. Named after the Kepler spacecraft that first spotted them Kepler-62e and Kepler-62f are claimed to orbit the star Kepler-62 every 122 and 267 hours. Kepler-62, which is smaller and cooler than our sun, keeps these two planets in its “habitable zone.” In this position they may receive enough light and warmth for moving liquid to be present on their surfaces. Research published by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA) suggests that both planets may have surfaces that are totally covered by ocean. Stanislaw Lem might have thought he … [Read more...] about Love in Outer Space – Or Just in Your Head?

One thing I have learned is that we ought to be unwilling to easily accept things for what they appear to be. Let’s investigate another metaphor. One might hear the adage, “canary in a coal mine” to signify the unlucky plight of what is arguably one of nature’s most charming birds. Canaries are acutely sensitive to gases such as carbon monoxide and methane that harbor in coalmines. “Canary in a coal mine” is not simply a figure of speech. In days gone by, canaries were actually used to detect gas breeches in various coal mines. If the canary … [Read more...] about That Time I Almost Wrecked My Personal Purpose
