Tornado Quest Science Links And Much More For April 25 – May 2, 2016

Greetings everyone! I hope all of you are having good weather and a great week. This week’s post will be on the brief side…as is always the case during the spring months where in North America we get quite busy with the severe weather season and data gathering. So, let’s get started…

For your consideration, here are this week’s links…

TECHNOLOGY

For those of us who use smartphones, it seems like new models are coming out as fast as we buy them. Here are some excellent tips on keeping your “vintage” smart phone in good working order.

ASTRONOMICAL SCIENCE

From New Scientist, “The countdown has begun. NASA’s Cassini spacecraft has spent more than a decade orbiting Saturn, dipping in and out of its rings and peering at its moons. But in just one year, it will begin its grand finale, a daring series of manoeuvres that will bring views of Saturn like never before – and end with the spacecraft plummeting to its death in the gas giant’s atmosphere.”

ENVIRONMENTAL SCIENCE/RENEWABLES

An interesting read on the effects wind farms have on climate and their local environment.

A sobering read for my friends in the UK on air pollution and its resulting public health crisis.

Here are some amazing satellite images taken during March, 2016 of our humble home.

ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCE

How can we best adapt to climate change? Ask a variety of people from a myriad of backgrounds.

We just lost a very critical climate change monitoring satellite, and this isn’t good.

Taking note of the climate is nothing new. People have been doing it for centuries.

As of late, a significant shift in concerns over climate change has been occurring in the USA’s political parties.

Snap, crackle, and zap! See what happens when an airplane is hit by lightning.

Check out this amazing photograph of a supercell thunderstorm taken from the International Space Station!

THE QUIXOTIC

Some people will stop at nothing for social media fame.

That’s a wrap for this post! See all of you soon!

Cheers!
