As you have noticed, this blog is no longer updated. I’m busy working but also reading all books and blogs out there. There are also plenty of movies and podcasts to watch or listen to. I will still update the below pages if you’re interested in what I’m following and reading online:
Space News – Sites, blogs and podcasts. More than I have time for.
Following all those sites, blogs and podcasts is what’s keeping me busy. And a few books and movies of course. I never intended to write articles of my own but to guide you to what is the most interesting in the ocean of information. This is it. Check out the above links and you’ll probably be as busy as I am. A good start but then you’re on your own 🙂
If you want to learn about science, space and astronomy the internet could be your best friend. The SETI Institute have their equivalent to TED Talks Science. Free science lectures not only about finding life in the universe but also about space exploration and astronomy in general. Great educational material by astronomers available for everyone. At the moment they have nearly 200 lectures.
Viking mythology says that there will be a long winter before Ragnarök, the end of the world. Long as three normal winters but with no summer in-between. After that winter there would be war. Maybe this Fimbulwinter really happened and inspired the mythology? In the year 536 there was a volcano eruption covering the sky and blocking the sun (and probably another eruption 540). Harsh years followed and crops failed. A lot of people died, not just in the Nordics. We’re just learning more about this event.
Last summer we followed New Horizons visiting Pluto. Now NASA is at it again. The Juno Mission will reach Jupiter on 4th of July. It will not just fly by but orbit Jupiter for more than a year. You can follow the adventure at NASA or Space.com among other sites.
