a SUPERNOVA is not a supergroup of ageing rockstars

But it is a once in 30 years event. You can see an exploding star! (take your gf, 'I can't buy you diamonds baby, but') Right after dusk, before the moon rises, look for the big dipper, and you might need to go to the everglades or your grandmas house near chrome avenue and calle ocho. Follow the handle up and then look above the tip, it should form a triangle with the last star and second to last star. The big dipper is seen facing north and off to the west. To be honest I went to look for it the other day, but the moon was up, around 9pm, and there was too much light. So right after dusk is important. Nice view out there though, bring off. You have to do it this weekend or tonight BEFORE our Sweat records mixer, or it will begin to dim.  Read more about my new Monday morning science show, Duncan's Dissertations after the jump.

 

Supernova's are a once in 30 years event, and you can see one!

They take one small tube of blood and if someone matches you and needs you, the donation process is similar to giving blood. They don't actually go into your bone marrow anymore.

 

 

If you like these kind of discussions tune in Monday morning for the start of Duncan's Dissertation's, which will be a two hour discussion of science and health topics with the involvement of the UM Miller School of Medicine and the Miami Museum of Science. If you have any questions or topics you're interested in, email them to dross [at] med.miami.edu and we can cover them. Monday we'll discuss the development of a drug to treat Lymphoma with an interview with Dr. Eckhard Podack as well as a live on-air call in from Dr. Nanette Bishopric on Stem Cell use to restore cardiac function after Heart Attack... keep it locked!
