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! :)

Gigantic ring system around J1407b much larger, heavier than Saturn's

Posted: 26 Jan 2015 10:52 AM PST

Astronomers have discovered that the ring system that they see eclipse the very young Sun-like star J1407 is of enormous proportions, much larger and heavier than the ring system of Saturn.

Quite fascinating AND endlessly remarkable.

And costly beyond measure.

We Yanks have to provide opportunities for people trained in STEM (science, technology, etc).

Without a supply of such people, our war-making powers would atrophy.

Quite remarkable!

I visit NASA APOD every day; it's my only chance to see some stars. Here the light pollution is so bad that we sometimes see a planet or a some stars but too few to see the pattern.

Comment by Patricia on Sunday

Gorgeous! We used to go camping way out away from civilization, & that's the sort of view we watched before turning in for the night. The best ''tv'' ever!!!

On the far right, bottom of the photo, press the circle button for a panoramic view of the Milky Way.

Comment by Joan Denoo on Sunday

I love astronomy and do get the photo of the day from NASA. I don't like it enough to learn the names of the constellations and stars. Of course, I know the usual ones ... the Dippers and Cassiopea, stuff like that. 

According to Tyson, when the Milky Way and Andromeda collide, there will not be too much collision because the stars will dance and circle around each other and mingle their dust clouds.
