ResearchBlogging editor's selections: End of the world edition!

Nov 30 2009 Published by under General science, Science news

I figured that the week of Thanksgiving would be quiet for research blogging -- not true!  Lots of folks stepped away from the turkey and stepped up to give us some research highlights.

The entries that caught my eye this week were (mostly) about past or hypothetical catastrophic events.  So let this be the end of the world edition of my editor's selections!

With all this gloom and doom, let's end with some beauty: Bruceleeowe of Bruceleeowe's Blog (again) reports on the recent lovely images of the northern lights of Saturn.

Check back next Monday for more miscellaneous highlights!

    My name is Erik Rasmussen, and I've been following your blog for a little while now. I'm very interested in having some professional opinions for a book that I'm writing. The book's basis is to give people a layman's term explanation of quantum physics, mechanics, and general "new science."

    I am very interested in having you as a professional opinion, if you wouldn't mind an e-mail based interview.

    If you're interested, please e-mail me at

    Keep the great information coming!
