On 21 August 2017 there will be a total solar eclipse stretching the breadth of the United States. There’s quite a bit of “doom and gloom” talk out there, a lot of it is baloney. What is very real is the danger from incorrectly observing the eclipse.

The video is all about how to watch the eclipse safely. I’ve been lucky enough to see a few solar eclipses both partial and total varieties and it is a fantastic experience and quite safe when done correctly.

    NASA's Mars 2020 mission, which will look for signs of past life on Mars, will use smart methods originally developed to find the oldest life on Earth, according the mission's Deputy Project Scientist, Dr Ken Williford. The 2020 mission builds on the successes of prior rovers, to make coordinated measurements that could detect signs of ancient life - or biosignatures - in their original spatial context. These techniques, known as "spatially resolved biosignature analysis" derive from…
