NASA | Zebra Crossing
Botswana's Okavango Delta and the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans are two ends of a 360-mile round trip zebra migration, the second longest on Earth. In this animation, shades of red show dry areas, green represents vegetation, and the dots show GPS tracked zebras. The zebras begin at the Okavango Delta in late September. After the dry Southern hemisphere winter, November rains signal it is time to begin their two-week journey to the Salt Pans. The zebras feast on nutrient-rich grasses all summer, and re

It’s Every Monkey for Themselves
Taking off to mend a broken heart, Vanessa Woods left safe, suburban Canberra and headed for the remote, wild and distinctly unsafe jungles of Costa Rica. She was stung so often by killer bees she developed a lethal allergy, and the monkeys she was to study were evasive, mean and aggressive. The only difference between them and her housemates was that at least she could tell her housemates apart. In this talk, science writer Vanessa Woods will explain how to survive a year in the jungle: a world

This is a song about parts of speech that is sung to the tune of a famous pop rock song. It is a non-professional production and the lighting is dark. These are some of the lyrics to the song:
Adverbs win, pronouns lose
Verbs were born to sing the blues

It goes on and on and on and on.
Adverb clauses, being used incorrectly,
Their subjects, searching for a verb.
Colon issues, places other than your body.

To appreciate this call, attendees to the lecture as respectfully asked to do the following just before the lecture: a.

Profile: Ben Oppenheimer
Dr. Oppenheimer is primarily interested in comparative exoplanetary science, the study of planets orbiting stars other than the Sun. This nascent field is so young that we cannot, yet, image exoplanets. His 600 square foot laboratory in the Rose Center is the birthplace of a number of new astronomical instruments designed to tackle the problem of exoplanet imaging and spectroscopy. Dr. Oppenheimer is a member of the team specifying the scientific goals of NASA's Terrestrial Planet Finder Miss
