The End of Everything?

In the short article "What are the odds of Earth's cataclysmic end?" IfA researchers explain some of the possibilities other than a galactic highway. Don't Panic -- you don't need to lose any sleep over them.

One of the things I love about astronomers is their ability to talk about their science in plain language. You can hear for yourself at the free "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the End of Everything", a panel discussion by University of Hawai'i astronomers, at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 4, at the Art building auditorium on the Manoa campus.

Another thing I love about science in general is that truth is almost always stranger than fiction ever could be.

Campus Hawaii Clubs

Hawaii is special in so many ways, even when it's exported to the mainland: "Hawaii clubs are fixtures at more than 50 colleges nationwide, and on many campuses are the only state-themed clubs."

Sorry, Dad, even if Cornell had one, I still wouldn't move back....

Two Links

I love Michael McGrorty's writing. This post goes well with our 52 in 52 attempt. I'm think I'm now at about 27 -- I may have forgotten a couple along the way...


In Wil's words: "I'm not sure if this is real, or not. If it's not, it's the funniest satire in history. If it is . . . it explains so much."

Open House

And a wonderful time was had by all...
