Joyce Bell Burnell, discoverer of pulsars, is joining the ranks of my Cosmic Pioneers series this evening.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell, born 1943, is a Northern Irish astrophysicist who discovered the first radio pulsars (signals coming from rapidly rotating neutron stars). Some have called this the “greatest astronomical discovery of the twentieth century.”

She made the discovery while under her thesis supervisor Antony Hewish, for which Hewish shared the 1974 Nobel Prize in Physics with Martin Ryle, while Bell Burnell was left out despite having observed the pulsars.  •

Art that’s not just for geeky grown ups!

Clip boards + 8x10 solar system prints = easy art display for a child’s room :)

Mars Art: Rarely Seen Gems From Curiosity Rover’s Raw Image Collection

1. Curiosity channels its inner Ansel Adams during its most northern sojourn in Yellowknife Bay.

2. Curiosity inspects a nice rock formation just outside Yellowknife Bay.

3. A beautiful view of the foothills of Mount Sharp.

4. Here, the rover looks over a small rise towards the foothills of Mount Sharp.

5. The intake filter leading to Curiosity’s interior laboratory, which sifts out only the finest dust grains.

6. A rounded black-and-white shot looking towards Mount Sharp, showing rocks and tracks in the foreground.

7. Curiosity’s handheld MAHLI camera took very high magnification shots of this rock.

8. The black pyramidal rock in this image was nicknamed “Jake Matijevic” by the Curiosity team. After shooting it with lasers and X-rays, the rover determined that it was a type of rock never before seen on Mars.

9. Mars is mostly covered in rocks. This small collection is indicative of most of the planet.

I found a bunch of my magnets popping up in the redditgifts gallery from the magnet exchange last month.

I love seeing people enjoy my stuff, but it’s still a bit surreal for me.
