CALLING ALL EARLY CAREER SCIENTISTS!  PASSIONATE ABOUT SCIENCE?  LOVE TO COMMUNICATE—OR WANT TO LEARN HOW?

 

You are wholeheartedly invited to participate in FameLab USA: Exploring Earth and Beyond!

 

FameLab is something like American Idol for scientists. Sponsored by NASA in the US, it’s a fun-filled day of competition, coaching, and camaraderie that’s all about science communication! Early career scientists from diverse scientific disciplines craft a 3-minute, powerpoint-free talk on their research or a related topic and deliver it in a supportive environment to judges who give only constructive feedback. No slides, no charts—just the power of words and any prop you can hold in your hands. The heart of the whole thing is a workshop conducted by communication professionals to help you enrich your skills.  So unlike American Idol, everyone wins!

 

See video clips of prior FameLabbers here: http://famelab-eeb.arc.nasa.gov/competitions/

 

Our next regional heat will be held on 14-15 December 2014 in San Francisco, CA in conjunction with the American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) Fall Meeting.

 

Even if you’re not planning to attend AGU, you’re welcome to participate.  Register today at: 

 

http://famelab-eeb.arc.nasa.gov/competitions/agu-december-2014/

 

Winners from the regional competitions will advance to the US National Final in April, 2016, and the winner there goes on to compete with peers from around the world at the FameLab International Final in the UK in June, 2016. 25 countries (and counting) from across the globe participate in FameLab!

 

New frontiers await scientists in every field of research, whether on land, under the sea, or in space. From our origins as humans to the origins of our Solar System, from climate change to the possibility life elsewhere in the Universe, sheer curiosity and passion for knowledge will always keep us at the cutting edge of exploration. In today’s media-intensive environment, your ability to convey your science can reshape the face of scientific exploration and discovery.

¿Are the Venusian sulphuric acid clouds the by product of long dead anoxogenic photosynthetic organisms?

Posted by Andrew Planet on May 4, 2020 at 2:51pm 2 Comments

I just read the piece at the link below entitled "Study: Life might survive, and thrive, in a hydrogen world."

I'd been thinking on similar lines recently, on different atmospheres with early life, but I was considering anoxogenic bacteria whose byproduct is sulfur instead of molecular oxygen. ¿Had life evolved on Venus could its sulfuric clouds be the signature byproduct of such life with no branches ever evolving to produce the equivalent of Earth's Great…

100 years tomorrow 26th April 2020 since we looked beyond the Milky Way Galaxy

Exactly 100 years ago tomorrow, the subject on whether this Universe is larger than the Milky Way Galaxy was brought up publicly at an event sponsored by the National Academy of Sciences, known as The Great Debate. Until then the Milky Way was thought to be this Universe.  Conference at the NAS http://www.nasonline.org/about-nas/events/annual-meeting/nas157/
