@mystic.aquarium & #WestMarineBlueFuture put on a wonderful series of educational and fun events earlier in the month to celebrate #WorldOceansDay . One of the events held was an evening Horseshoe Crab Walk that taught families about the living fossils - knowing the event would head into the dark, @westmarineinc provided Princeton Tec headlamps for the participants.
A big thanks to groups like the Mystic Aquarium & West Marine for helping to educate the next generation of outdoor lovers and explorers!
Check out the Mystic Aquarium or West Marine's Blue Future Facebook pages for the full video seen above.

The latest image of the sun features only one visible sunspot region. The sun has been completely blank almost one-quarter of the time this year as it heads towards the next solar minimum.
The sun is currently featuring one lonely visible sunspot region and this relatively blank look is becoming more and more common as solar cycle 24 heads towards the next solar minimum. In fact, there have been 42 days in 2017 with a completely blank sun – already ten more days than all of last year – and this makes up almost one-quarter of the time for this year. Solar cycle 24 has turned out to be historically weak with the lowest number of sunspots since cycle 14 peaked more than a century ago in 1906. In fact, by one measure, the current solar cycle is the third weakest since record keeping began in 1755 and it continues a weakening trend since solar cycle 21 peaked in 1980. One of the natural impacts of decreasing solar activity is the increase of cosmic rays that can penetrate into the Earth’s upper atmosphere and this can have many important consequences.

Veja a nossa primeira reportagem da coluna "Desvendando uma técnica" e descubra como as vacinas são feitas, com a ajuda da autora Alejandra Viviescas.
Nesta coluna (cujas reportagens são publicadas às segundas-feiras, duas vezes ao mês) iremos destrinchar as técnicas usadas pelos cientistas em suas pesquisas!
Vocês serão apresentados aos princípios básicos, ou seja, como ela funciona. Além disso, vamos mostrar como os resultados obtidos podem responder às mais interessantes perguntas e contribuir para o avanço da ciência!!!
More Physics notes on Magnetism // Posted this to say that I may not be online/post very often for a while.
To be honest, the only social apps I have on my phone are instagram and Goodreads.
I rarely use the latter. On the former, I'm logged into only this account and my feed test account.
I really thought that studygram would only bring me joy. And all of you really do, your comments and messages always make me so happy. I've also met so so so many wonderful and friendly people here, and I do cherish these friendships.
I joined studyblr/studygram to get motivated to study - and hopefully motivate others to study too.
I always believed that studygram was never about the aesthetics, expensive stationary or the amount of followers we have, but rather to make friends so that we could encourage and support each other in our educational journeys.
However, studygram has become much more than just that. I hate how everything has become so superficial? I don't get why people are so obsessed with numbers and titles nowadays.
I guess there's no escaping the toxicity of social media lmao ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I was really considering just deleting this account but I really love you guys too much haha :") I actually have taken quite a lot of pictures and still do wish to share them with you. But if there are sudden periods of inactiveness then you'll know why.
Grab your favorite pair of sunglasses and step outside—it’s #SunglassesDay ! .
Sunglasses are fine, but here at the Adler, we take our shades a little stronger. Actually, a LOT stronger.
Solar viewing glasses block out so much light that only an object as bright as the Sun can break through them. With a pair of these on, you can look directly at the Sun! That makes them the perfect companion for a solar eclipse.
So don those sunglasses for today (and do NOT look directly at the Sun), but remember to wear your solar viewing glasses for the August 21 eclipse!
Four essential components of life: - SUNLIGHT: Boosts the body's vitamin D supply allowing the regulation of most tissues
- WATER: Makes up to 60% of the body weight
- AIR: contains Oxygen which is the most abundant element in the human body
- SHREDDED ABS: Impress females for reproduction purposes ensuring the continuation of the human species
