My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky. Share Your Sky »

In the last several decades a number of new solutions have been found, including a beautiful figure eight solution. As a way of exploring these I have created an app "ThreeBody Lite" to allow an exploration of these solutions and the ability to create new ones. It is available on iOS ... more »

Most of my life I've prided myself on being open minded, willing to hear both sides of the story and come to my own conclusions. I've loved science and the unexpected results deriving from experiments since I was a kid. The problem was, I never really did anything about it.

When I was a kid I was in the DISCOVERIES program at my school throughout elementary and middle school it was the advanced classes for elementary and middle school students. We got to take a lot of field trips mostly ... more »
