The Big Blog Theory announces finalists

// July 13th, 2010 // 2 Comments » // Science Communication

I’m pleased to announce A Schooner of Science has been named one of ten finalists for The Big Blog Theory.

As well as being named Australia’s best science blog, the winner will attend and blog about National Science Week events across Australia.

Now it’s up to you.

Three reasons to vote for A Schooner of Science:

1. I’ll make videos, tweet AND write posts, you can’t get better coverage than that.
2. I will have a system so you decide which events I should cover.
3. We could get a pirate to National Science Week.

Have a look at the list of finalists and vote for your favourite.

New video up!

I started this video back in January and 95% finished it before I moved to Canberra and bought a laptop. I haven’t had a chance to complete it and upload it… until now.

The montage part is my favourite.

Solid Earth Tides

Oceans aren’t the only thing that respond to the moon. The land has tides as well.

My videos are all found on my YouTube Channel. If you love me or fear me, click through and RANK ME OR WALK THE PLANK!

It’s unbelievable that the ground beneath you actually moves up twice a day, just like the tides. Imagine what that must mean for the tectonic plates. Seismic activity is involved to make it happen. The vibrations are very slow, but Earth Sound have recordings of it sped up so we can hear it.

Mind is now blown.
