Hey! I really love the ustream tab on the right - seems like it will be great, once we get live talks streaming! Overall I am finding the site to be great to so far! 

Blog posts need to be associated better.. I am thinking of ways on how we can make it more efficient... And we need a newsletter. I am writing this down to not to forget :)
Great idea about a newsletter! I think that would be really cool and a great way to highlight events both past and future!

How will a newsletter be different than a blog?

Newsletter, in my mind, should be a once-a-month thing where we highlight the happenings of that month.. Whereas the blog is an on-going website and open to anyone who is interested (community owned, sagan blog)

We can create a pdf version of the monthly newsletter and post it to the blog once a month. Like, our award from NAI can go to newsletter  is definitely a highlight (heck yes!) :) I thought this could also be a good way to update the folks at NAI & BMS and keep a track of what we are up to in general.

I am opening a twitter account for sagan.. let's see what is available..
I was thinking it might be great if the newsletter went out once a month in an email to all s.a.g.a.n. members who opt to receive. This is a good way to keep people updated on s.a.g.a.n. happenings particularly if they are not logging into the site on a regular basis (but of course I hope they will be!). Also, if people haven't logged in for a while and something is really interesting in the newsletter it might bring them back =)

Newsletter would be great! I've been changing with the formatting just a bit... to me this is more appealing to the eye. 

 

I am trying to figure out how to clean it up just a little bit .. it seems a bit to wordy (like too many options) on the front page... but it's hard to remove things! 

 

What is ya'lls opinion? 

I agree! We need to make the interface cleaner, I like the new format better too.
We can make the frontpage a lot cleaner by upgrading the next package level, which is double the price. Something to consider!

The new format seems a lot better, but I agree I think we should think about upgrading. One thing on the current format - is there a way to move the photos to a different spot? I feel like they are dominating the front page and it might be better to have the latest activity at the top (which could include posting of recent photos). Just the whole thing about having to scroll down to sit what's new seems counterproductive. 

 

Otherwise, loving the new look!

agreed, I vote for moving pictures somewhere else, and moving latest activity at the top as well.

¿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/
