The Science of Time

Hey, I'm Harry. Just another highschool student with a science obssession and a blog. Chemistry, Physics and maths are my mains and with them I hope to study electrical and electronics engineering at the University of Adelaide (did I mention I am Australian!). So yeah feel free to message me anytime if you are curious or just need a friend. Disclosure: I am a highschool student not a PhD

Anonymous asked: I'm kind of new to the whole tumblr thing and I was wondering if you could make a list of your top five to ten science blogs? I'd really appreciate it

I realize this is a little bit more than ten but I’m sure you’ll live

A list of science Tumblrs for all to see

(For a while I was wondering why we weren’t on the list :p )

i’d add penny4nasa to that list. 

Oh yeah absolutely! Thanks!
pennyfornasa

Great list! 

Looking for some other science tumblrs? This list ain’t a bad place to start.

Maybe if we reblog this we’ll get on s-c-i-guy's and skunkbear's radar… :)

Attention followers: make sure you follow
kqedscience
!! I can’t believe I completely left you guys out of my list. My bad!

Young Women Don’t Recognize Cervical Cancer SymptomsNew research led by King’s College London suggests that many women under 30 with cervical cancer are diagnosed more than three months after first having symptoms. In many cases, this was because they did not recognize the symptoms as serious. The study is published today in the British Journal of General Practice.Approximately one in 134 women will get cervical cancer at some point in their lives. It is most common in women in their thirties. Cervical cancer is nearly always caused by the Human Papillomavirus (HPV). HPV infection is very common, especially in young women, but for most, the infection resolves completely on its own and does not lead to cervical cancer. In England, the NHS offers screening to prevent cervical cancer to women aged 25-64.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/09/young-women-dont-recognize-cervical-cancer-symptoms

BLM and Partners Excited About Condor Release on National Public Lands Day!

Today, the BLM, The Peregrine Fund and partners will release three California condors in the BLM-managed Vermillion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona.

The California condor is a magnificent and prehistoric bird that is an important part of the ecology of western states. Utah is excited to be part of the establishment of more condors. – Greg Sheehan, Director of Utah Division of Wildlife Resources

I appreciate working with Chris Parish and The Peregrine Fund biologists. They’re good people and they work hard to keep the condors alive. Justun Jones, Rancher, Kane and Two Mile Ranch, Arizona  

To me the condor recovery program is a positive success story; one that is a testament to man’s good nature to do the right thing to bring this species back from the brink of extinction. BLM Vermilion Cliffs National Monument Manager Kevin Wright

The annual release coincides with National Public Lands Day, and you can join the celebration on social media!  Follow using the hashtags #CondorsOnTheRise, #WelcomeCondors and #NPLD on BLM’s Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.

Explanation: Would the Rosette Nebula by any other name look as sweet? The bland New General Catalog designation of NGC 2237 doesn’t appear to diminish the appearance of the this floweryemission nebula. Inside the nebula lies an open cluster of bright young stars designated NGC 2244. These stars formed about four million years ago from the nebular material and their stellar winds are clearing a hole in the nebula’s center, insulated by a layer of dust and hot gas. Ultraviolet light from the hot cluster stars causes the surrounding nebula to glow. The Rosette Nebula spans about 100 light-years across, lies about 5000 light-years away, and can be seen with a small telescope towards the constellation of Monoceros.

Unrolling these circles gives fills a triangle with base 2 π r and height r (where r is the radius of the filled disk). Such a triangle has area π r2. This does not serve as a complete proof for why this is the area of a circle, but can give you some intuition for why it should be. [code]

NGC 4449
NGC 4449 is an irregular dwarf galaxy located about 12.5 million light years away towards the constellation Canes Venatici, the Hunting Dogs. It is about the size of the Large Magellanic Cloud, a satellite galaxy of the Milky Way, and is currently undergoing a burst of star formation.
Ngc 4449 is also the first dwarf galaxy with a noticable tidal star stream, seen in this image on the lower right. The inset in this image shows the stream in red giant stars. This stream is made from the remains of a smaller galaxy, disrupted by the gravitational forces and now in the process of merging with NGC 4449, probably causing the current starburst. Small galaxies often have large halos of dark matter, so by studying the system astronomers can learn about how the presence of dark matter affects galactic merging.

Anonymous asked: Sooo... tell us a little bit (or a lot bit) about yourself. Likes? Dislikes? Hobbies? Daydreams? Little inconsequential facts?

Hi, I am Harry, 16 year old, high school student from Adelaide, South Australia and as you have probably gathered I am a big nerd. I like science and math and the rest of it but also video games, movies and possibly a little bit of socialising on the side.I am slightly bilingual, mainly English with a smidge of Japanese on the side. Favourite food would have to be chicken nuggets because they are pretty yummy. Dislikes include ball sports and processed meats. Cycling and video games are probably the two closest things I have to hobbies. I day dream a lot about not a lot. I have red hair, so that is pretty cool I guess.
