Carolyn Porco, Planetary scientist shows images from the Cassini voyage to Saturn, focusing on its largest moon, Titan, and on frozen Enceladus, which seems to shoot jets of ice. The leader of the Imaging Team on the Cassini mission to Saturn, she interprets and shares the pictures coming back from this fascinating planet, its rings and its moons.

Study Charts 2,000 Years of Continental Climate Changes

"A comprehensive new analysis of temperature changes over the continents through 2,000 years has found that a long slide in temperatures in most regions preceded the unusual global warming of recent decades, but with a lot of regional variability and other fascinating details. A National Science Foundation news release has ample background."

Mammoths, Overkill, and a Deep-Time Perspective on Pleistocene Exti...

Thank you for the invitation to join this group.  I am so happy to have found this page!  I was reading Atheism for Dummies, and they had a link to this page, which is how I found you.  Anyway, thanks again for the invite!:-)
