Hi Everyone!


Pamela and I thought it'd be a good idea to start a thread for all of you to chime in on topics and speakers you'd like to be featured on our "Weekly Science Hour" on Google+.

I can't wait to see what sort of topics and discussions we can start having stemming from our fantastic community here on CosmoQuest!

The Sun would be a good topic. It has so many interesting features and without it we wouldn't be here. You could even invite Camilla Corona :)

The sun is a fantastic topic! Camilla and her crew are some wonderful people whom we've had the pleasure of working with before! Thanks for the input, pstew!

Extrasolar planets! What we know about them, how we know what we know, such as detection methods. Maybe a topic covering extrasolar missions such as Kepler and Corot(?). Maybe another one around 'earth-like' planets in a star's habitable zone.

I don't want to put you down, but

what we can say about them with scientific 100% accuracy is so little interesting (in practice: only that some planets exist and have a revolution period around their sun of xyz earth days...)

that I find much more real - and fun and interesting too!

reading old gossip magazines picking them from the trash !!

Anytime one is writing some sort of variant of "I probably shouldn't do this", they are almost certainly correct.

You are trolling a 7 year old post with an image that is off-topic and essentially spam. You seem to be getting yourself in a lot of trouble lately; if you do not start following our rules more closely, you will find yourself banned from CQ.

ok, i understand my mistake... i believed to be fun, but I was just SPAM... TZK TZK TZK

the EASY solution for me is not to be less provocative, but just avoiding images completely, except nokookies tiny ones from wikipedia - for real reference purpose...

As much as I like to the topic of the Sun, what about Pluto? For a good chunk of my life, it has always been a point of light or a grainy spot.

Severe storms..tornadoes might be a good one for spring. Tom Grazulis has a nice speaking voice, as does Chuck Doswell
