Exogeology ROCKS! Episode 12

Posted by Zoe on 29th November 2014 in Main Page

In this episode, we meet Dr. Dante Lauretta, Professor of Planetary Science at the University of Arizona and Principal Investigator for the OSIRIS-REx mission.

I’ve talked about the OSIRIS-REx mission before, and it’s one of the coolest things going on in exogeology: they’re going to send a spacecraft to an asteroid and bring back a piece. Wonder what it’s like to be in charge of all of that? Watch the video below to find out!

For more information, check out the OSIRIS-REx website, Xtronaut’s website, and the 321Science! videos.

Where is the closest black hole?

Good questions! Here are my best answers.

321Science Presents: Asteroids Fact vs. Fiction

Posted by Zoe on 12th December 2013 in Exogeology, Main Page

Awesome news: the countdown for the OSIRIS-REx asteroid sample return mission has begun, and it’s now only 996 days until the beginning of the launch window!

Want to know more about asteroids and sort the science facts from the science fiction? The 321Science team is here to help with a video to illustrate the difference and answer a few questions about asteroids.

I’m incredibly excited about this video, which I helped to make! It was interesting seeing it go from script to numerous drawings to super-cool final product. I drew a couple of scale bars and small asteroid, placed a couple paper planets, and did a few miscellaneous other things. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a certain spaceship from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…

Final Geo Party! of Game 2

Posted by Zoe on 28th October 2013 in Geo Party, Main Page

This is it, the very last clue of the whole second game. If you’ve been paying abnormally good attention, you’ll have noticed this is clue number 61. It’s hard to believe the game is nearly over already. We’ve been to so many cool places! But, alas, there has to be an end to this game. Tomorrow will mark the official end of game 2, when we reveal the correct response to today’s final clue.

The category: Musical Groups. Drumroll please!

(Note that the music in the background isn’t necessarily by the band that’s the correct response.)

One of the awesomest animals at the Monterey Bay Aquarium: the giant octopus! We were lucky enough to be there when it was up and moving around, and it sure moved in an interesting way. Look at those tentacles in the water! But, what’s really awesome about the octopus is… well, watch and guess.
