Wake Up!

zzzzzz……zzzzsdsfhoi…wha?? Oh hi! I guess I must have dozed off for a few seconds. Wait, I’ve been sleeping since March?

Yes, blog, you’ve been asleep for a while. We’re going through some changes here at the Orders of Magnitude household. You may be a seeing a little less of Patricia Waldron, whose journalistic abilities will be taking her to the redwoods and beaches of Santa Cruz, CA. I’ll be in OKC for the time being, but now that things have settled down a bit, we’ll be able to get back into a regular blogging schedule. What have we missed? Probably not a lot, right?


In this rare image taken on July 19, 2013, the wide-angle camera on NASA’s Cassini spacecraft captured Saturn’s rings and Earth in the same frame.

Aw, man!

Italian astronaut Luca Parmitano escaped what could have been a deadly disaster on July 16, 2013 when his spacesuit began leaking water. He described not being able to breathe and barely made it back into the ISS.

Holy water balls!

An August 5th story in The Telegraph says that having an orgasm instead of doing a crossword puzzle is better for your brain. What if you’re doing a crossword AND having sex? I guess that would make the sex not as good…anyway, I think we all know what we need to do here.

Never fear! Just because we haven’t been posting doesn’t mean we haven’t been paying attention to all the awesome science.  Stay tuned, Magnituders. We’re just getting started.
