Whether you're a professional, a student, an amateur, an enthusiast, whatever! Lots of atheists love science. Might as well have a group for it!

Feel free to nerd out, link articles, talk about your favorite field of research, whatever!

I've been super busy with school this semester -- no time for Atheist Nexus, sadly!!
If anyone who's around here a lot wants me to toss them moderation privileges to run this group or anything, just send me (Sara) a message! Thanks!

Removed ability to send mass messages to everyone in the group. At 1000+ members, that seems like asking for spam.

Offer still open if anyone active in the group wants moderation privileges, but it appears everything has been going smoothly with all kinds of great discussions without moderation. Fantastic! :)

Thanks guys!

Rebekah, I was going to point you to Science Based Medicine also. Best source of info I've found on vaccines, unless you want to read a book. Paul Offit's book is the one I read recently, so you might be able to look up his articles to see if he mentions those ingredients in particular online somewhere.

I want to try to explain to a non-medical person the negligible amounts of formaldehyde and Triton X in the flu vaccine I give. Are there other everyday things anyone can point me to, that a non-vaccinated person might get similar exposure or worse? So I can explain that the vaccines aren't full of chemicals? Thanks for your help!

In August, Mars Rover Curiosity will have one hell of a ride known as the "7 minutes of terror."

Wow, this is bad ass... dunno how else to put it. Up there w/Tesla motor co.!~

Researchers have clocked light beams made of "twisted" waves carrying 2.5 terabits of data - the capacity of more than 66 DVDs - per second.

The technique relies on manipulating what is known as the orbital angular momentum of the waves

and freaks still wanna do god wtf.. waste...

Indeed - this is exactly what quasars are; giant black holes with giant accretion disks. The material in the accretion disks rubs against all the other material, heats up and starts to glow, effectively. Since the speeds are to phenomenal, the heat gets absolutely fantastically intense. Plasma, as the result of the heat, that's moving generates a magnetic field, and the magnetic field has two poles. Just as energy gets IN at the poles of the earth's magnetic field, energy gets OUT at the poles of the black hole's magnetic field. Note that these two beams are steady - not sweeping through space like from a neutron star, pulsar or magnetar, since the magnetic field from a black hole's accretion disk doesn't "wobble" the way the magnetic field does on a neutron star, pulsar or magnetar.

Tom, black holes are often associated with stars or a ring of material feeding into the hole. These jets are coming from the surrounding material not from the hole itself.

Observations of black holes often relies on observing this material.
