I just love this quote. Gives you such good perspective of the universe and leaves you feeling so positive 🌎 ✨"Welcome to the Universe" by J. Richard Gott and Neil Degrasse Tyson #CarlSagan#Scienceisimportant
Today I march for all scientists who fear for loss of funding, censorship, or even eradication of their jobs under the new administration. I march for the right to continue studying a subject, no matter if this administration or others believe in it, because science doesn't care what you believe. I march in the hopes that politicians will hear our collective concerns and use reason, instead of emotions and monetary incentives, in the policies they work on. I march in the hopes that all will see the importance of science - science is not just for scientists, it benefits all. #marchforscience#science#scienceisimportant#theoceansarerisingandsoarewe
So proud of these hard-working Dumpster Diving Dolphins: Ketchikan's 2015 Lego-Robo Champs--with a great musical message to boot. Not only is this one now fervent about recycling--without any prods from yours truly, but since starting the program he's decided he's going to be a computer engineer. This is why #STEM curricula matter and deserve our $$$. #scienceisimportant
#tbt to when I saw my lifer Little Blue Herons! These comical little herons were very expressive and I knew I would have to sketch them later. I love graphite sketching as a form of capturing energy in a subject.
A large sea-duck of arctic waters, the Spectacled Eider is oddly charming. Unfortunately, the western Alaskan population has dropped by 96% in less than 40 years. I've only yet seen Common Eiders, but I someday hope to travel to Alaska and spend quality time with these unique ducks.
I thought this video was so cool!!!!! It basically explains the overall objective of the organization I work for. People don't understand how many men and women actually risk their lives just so that we can continue to live on this planet we call home.. the study of Earth and space science is 💯% risky... not just because of what they are doing but being in the field period.. some scientists be in the field for months and some of which are women.. scary thing is doing a civic duty as such u would think they would be safe with the other men and women they travel with.. NOPE.. the percentage of women who end up raped is so high.. and what makes it even more sad is this is their work. What they enjoy doing.. how will they be respected by the other men within their field if they speak up? So they don't speak up.. 😞 it's soooo much deeper than u think! #geophysics#earthandspace#science#women#thankYOU#men#thankyou#itsnotallofthem#trumpwhatareudoing#weneedscience#itsimportant#scienceisimportant#studyingitisevenmoreimpottant#welovescience#helpsustainearth
