And now – you can vote for your favorite! Click2Houston has new “Best Museum” poll – and even if you don’t vote, it’s worth a visit just to check out the variety of museums we have right here in town.
Perhaps not surprisingly, I voted for HMNS – where else can you travel the cosmos, walk with the dinosaurs, explore a tropical rainforest and go on an African safari, all without leaving Houston? But I might be a little biased.
What about you? If you vote, come back and leave us a comment. We’d love to know who you voted for – and what makes that museum your favorite.
Two things I am constantly impressed by: kids’ talent and Google’s genius. Put them together, and…Google asked students to develop a new logo around the theme “What if…?” It could illustrate whatever they were curious about – and lots of the finalists had some very scientific questions about the future, like, “What if I could make another sun?” So, check out these kids’ very cool art and vote for your favorite in each age group – the winners will appear on the Google homepage on May 22.
CritterCam isn’t the only way to safely and accurately observe wild animal behavior – scientists also use “camera traps” – which are placed in the wild and motion activated. They mostly take one image – but one scientists has rigged them to take a series of photos, which can be played as a short movie. It’s an amazing way to see what animals are like when we aren’t around.
NASA has found something really cool, specifically: “the discovery of an object in our galaxy that astronomers have been hunting for over 50 years.” Aliens? Bad Astronomer says no, and I’m inclined to agree – what do you think it is?
