Our universe may be filled with unseen giants. Astronomers have discovered two giant radio galaxies, which are some of the largest-known objects in the universe. This revelation suggests that the enormous galaxies may be more common than previously believed. The study published Monday in the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. Astronomers found the two galaxies in new radio maps that were created using the MeerKAT radio telescope in South Africa. Radio galaxies, which can be quite common, are brightest in radio wavelengths of light. Centaurus A is a...

Para mi primer post del 2021, quiero compartir acerca del increíble trabajo de nuestro amigo Mike Jabot y sus colegas. Conversé con Mike hace un par de semanas, y me enteré de que él ha participado en un proyecto colaborativo entre la Nación Séneca y USDA Northeast Climate Hub. El proyecto se llama “Conectando a la juventud a el agua cambiante”. A través de este proyecto, los jóvenes han participado en oportunidades de aprendizaje a la vez que ayudan a una granja a reintroducir cultivos nativos conocidos como las “tres hermanas” (maíz, frijoles, y calabaza). Los jóvenes aprendieron a...

For my first post in 2021, I want to share about the amazing work performed by our friend Mike Jabot and his colleagues. I conversed with Mike a couple weeks ago, and I learned that he participated in a joint project between the Seneca Nation and the USDA Northeast Climate Hub called, “Connecting Youth to the Changing Water”. Through this project, the youth were engaged in learning opportunities while helping the farm reintroduce native crops known as the “three sisters” (corn, beans, and squash). The youth learned about planting, harvesting, and storing the crops. While working on their...

In May 2020, citizen scientist Carmen Mandel met two major milestones: she marked her one-year anniversary of being a GLOBE Observer and she single-handedly expanded the Clouds satellite match data by 36%. Carmen uses GLOBE Observer to record clouds 2-3 times daily every time she gets a notification that a NASA satellite is overhead. She sends her data to GLOBE, but then she records her observation in her own clouds journal. When she receives an email from NASA Langley Research Center matching her observation to satellite data, she adds that to her journal as well. On...
