# IAmScience

“Magical things can happen when you enthusiastically open your mouth on the internet.” – Kevin Zelnio

Science writer and marine biologist Kevin Zelnio started the Twitter hashtag #IamScience last month, encouraging scientists to share their individual stories about their traditional or unconventional paths that brought them to where they are today. The response was overwhelming, with hundreds of tweets pouring in over just a few days.Mindy Weisberger compiled some of the tweets and added Reckless Kelly’s “Wicked Twisted Road” to create this video. If readers of this post can share their thoughts about how they got into their profession including science that would be great.

Weekend Video: VDay Special- Look Into Her Pupils


Pupils? Did I mean Look into her eyes? Well the title of this post is correct. According to Bruno Laeng, Pupillometry expert from University of Oslo, we need to look closer and deeper into the pupils of individuals in order to gauge their emotional responses. Pupillometry is basically the measurement of diameter of eye’s pupils. It has been shown during past 50 years of pupillomtery that pupils respond not only to changes in light from surroundings but also to other stimuli including thoughts, emotions and mental loading. Typically, in response to strong emotions or heavy mental loading, pupils dilate which indicates increase in attention of the individual. In other words, if pupils of your loved one increase listening to your Vday proposal, its indication that she has got your attention and that’s a good sign!

Beautiful Aurora Display

It’s been a while I posted something, consider this a semi-hiatus from blogging. I will try to post something from time to time. I have posted several posts on Auroras. Here is another one with video and pictures taken by astronauts on ISS while passing over Indian Ocean on Sep 17th 2011. They took several  images and compiled a video which shows spectacular Aurora display. This particular Aurora display was a result of Coronal Mass Ejection event which occurred in the Sun on Sep 14th 2011, leading to stirring of the earth’s magnetic field and excitation of nitrogen and oxygen molecules in earth’s atmosphere. Greenish part of the Aurora glow is contributed by emission from excited oxygen molecule while blue or purple glow is from nitrogen molecule. Enjoy the Video. Towards the end of the video you can notice some specks and bright glows on earth’s surface which are infact forest wild fires and agricultural fires in Australia.

Hurricane Irene’s life span

Hurricane Irene spanned from Caribbean to Canada and lasted for more than a week. NASA/NOAA satellite GOES-13 kept a track of the hurricane and NASA posted a video of the hurricane dating Aug 21st to Aug 29th which covers almost entire life-span of the hurricane. In the video you can see the formation of eye (at about 30 seconds in the video). Right after the formation of eye, you can see a burst of white clouds on the right of the eye which then merges with the core of the hurricane. This burst is due to warm air rising the clouds , also called as overshooting tops, and resulting in severe rainfall. Hurricane Irene at it’s strongest was a category 3 hurricane and turned out to be one of the top ten most destructive hurricanes in the history of US since 1980. About 27 lives were lost, entire transportation system in east coast was affected and more than 5 million people lost power.

Weekend Video: Everything Nice| Timelapse and Tempest Milky Way


After a long hiatus from blogging, I am back to blogging world!! My work is keeping me busy, so my posts will be relatively shorter but be assured that I will keep posting interesting stories. To begin with lets watch some beautiful and creative videos. First  video by Randy Halverson simply is breathtaking. There are so many things to look for in the video- our galaxy milky way in the night sky, falling meteors (look for one at 3:24 min), brewing storm on the grounds, white-tail deer (look for it at 1:57 min) and much more. The video was shot in Dakota during June-August.  So turn on the volume, click on HD button and enjoy this beautiful video.

This weekend’s  second  video has been submitted by Ceri titled “Everything Nice | Timelapse”. I hope you enjoy his video.  More stories and videos in coming days, have a nice long weekend!!
