George & the Big Bang - book review
Will a secret organization and an evil genius succeed in destroying a big physics experiment and killing the scientists involved? Can George and Annie find and disarm the quantum bomb? How is Schrödinger's cat involved? Another great blend of fantasy and science from Lucy and Stephen Hawking.
*What happens if you squeeze out a wet towel in space?*
My first guess was that you'd have water squirting everywhere and blobs of water floating around. But not so. Have a look to see what happens when ISS Commander Chris Hadfield actually tries it out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=o8TssbmY-GM#t=0s
*Saturn at opposition April 26-28*
Saturn is at its nearest point to us this weekend and its rings are tipped at an angle that give us a good view. It should be a supurb object through even a small telescope for a couple of weeks. Look for it in the southeast, where it's already visible in the early evening. If you're not sure where to find it, check the sky map on http://www.heavens-above.com
