Miniature satellites offer new opportunities for science, commerce, and education. With new launch vehicles, these satellites will fly as primary payloads rather than hitchhiking on bigger missions.
Tiny CubeSat satellites made of one or more cube-like modules roughly the size of coffee mugs offer a compact and inexpensive way to conduct research and other activities in space.

David B. Stephenson is quite right regarding the incidence of different forms of color-vision impairment, which varies among racial and ethnic groups and is […]
As a color-blind climatologist, I very much appreciated the important color-awareness issues raised by A. Light and P. J. Bartlein in their recent Eos article titled “The End of the Rainbow? Color Schemes for Improved Data Graphics,” (85(40), 5 October 2004, p. 385). Meteorological and climate information is frequently communicated in the form of highly […]
Here's a simple guide to creating engaging, easy-to-read graphics to accompany your research.
