Thank you, young people
On my blog, I said a few months ago that we 'ought to give kids a whack on the side of the head' so they'd know that change is in their hands. Now you have given the rest of us a whack that shows that you see the light far better than many of your elders do.
You helped us see beyond illusion, beyond the irrelevant, and beyond fear. You taught us hope and you taught us courage. What I saw on the Mall on January 20 was a passing of leadership to you; you have shown us all that you not only have the right to lead but that you will lead with greater hope and courage than we have often shown.
So, thank you for revealing your strength and your vision. The country and the world are in good hands.
Giving our solar system a "slap in the face."
- A stream of galactic debris is hurtling at us, pulling dark matter along with it
- It's traveling so quickly it's been described as a hurricane of dark matter
- Scientists are excited to set their particle detectors at the onslffaught
The climate change we're witnessing is more dramatic than we might think.
Once again, our circadian rhythm points the way.
- Seven individuals were locked inside a windowless, internetless room for 37 days.
- While at rest, they burned 130 more calories at 5 p.m. than at 5 a.m.
- Morning time again shown not to be the best time to eat.
