Do you want to support future generations of scientists? Need a break from your research? Barnette Magnet School’s Science Fair of 2017 is coming up on March 7, 2017 and we are looking for members of our community and local experts to be judges. Judges will review projects from different categories and topics, assess projects and student presentations using a provided rubric and give feedback to students. Contact Elizabeth Gustafson at firstname.lastname@example.org for to sign up or get more information!
A pair of Lobben felt boots, almost like new, for sale. The size is a little bit too small for a US size 13 foot, which is why they are almost like new even though I bought them years ago. I think they would fit a size 12 very comfortably. Make me an offer.

Science Event of the Week
In 1929, Edwin Hubble published the now classic paper that first showed the universe was expanding (and later provided observational evidence for the Big Bang theory). But Hubble explicitly made no such an interpretation. He left that to the reader. His paper was simply titled “A Relation Between Distance and Radial Velocity Among Extra-Galactic Nebulae.” He listed the data that he plotted on a graph. It showed a roughly linear relationship between radial velocity for various galaxies and their distance. It dramatically showed that the the further away the galaxy, the faster it is moving away from the observer. However, stating that future new data might change the interpretation, he discretely wrote that he thought it “premature to discuss in detail the obvious consequences of the present results.”
