Just stumbled upon fascinating site for anyone interested in astronomy: eso.org
Virtual tours of the facilities, images, educational materials, SpaceScope (astronomy news for kids), information...Wow!
Also check out recent time lapse video from the Very Large Telescope (VLT) at the ESO site in Chile: http://youtu.be/wFpeM3fxJoQ
One of our MSP2 members, Aimee, has posted a request for middle school science teachers to assist with an e-book research project. Please check out her post and consider participating.
Thought everybody would be interested in something cool that is happening at one of our greenhouses on the campus of Ohio State University - it's going to be stinky around here real soon! Love the webcam - Kim
Joan Leonard, coordinator of OSU’s Biological Sciences Greenhouse, said a story about her soon-to-bloom corpse flower, named “Woody,” has gone global. The Dispatch published this story about the amorphophallus titanum on Saturday.
Also called the corpse flower for it’s intense rotting meat smell, Leonard said it’s gathering quite a following. Students have reported hearing foreign language news reports, and it hasn’t even flowered yet.
People can track the corpse flowers progress by visiting the website or watching on their webcam. The university has already posted visiting hours for the plant, which is set to bloom in early May.
