science told me so
Earth is Singing Like a Whale, Says NASA — Hear it Now
Need some soothing sounds to put your Monday blues in perspective? We've got you covered.

That’s the sound of the Earth “singing,” as recorded by the awesomely-named Storm Probe mission — a couple of satellites investigating the famous Van Allen belts, intense radiation zones that surround our planet like a doughnut. The Storm Probes, launched last month, are mapping the density of charged particles.

The whale song is an audio rendering of radio waves captured by the Probes and caused by the two Van Allen belts, inner and outer. You don’t actually hear the audio in space, of course, but the radio waves — known as “chorus” — are for real.

You vs. The guy she tells you not to worry about
So no one told you fifth year was gonna be this way

I was excited just for me because I’m drawn to characters like (Simmons). But we had some girls come to set who won a competition through Disney — like a science competition, they had to submit a project — so I got to speak to them and we hung out for a while. It is creating a positive image of science for young girls, because they told me that it is! So that’s really special and I’m proud to be a part of something that does that.

How do you guys handle people telling you medical stuff that just isn’t true? 

There’s this phenomenon out there and it’s like the medical equivalent of ‘bro science.’ “This dude at the gym told me that <insert bullshit claim> so it must be true because he’s huge.” The same happens in medicine. 

I’m still working out the best way to deal with some of the crazy stuff I hear friends say and learning when is the time to correct and when is the time to just smile politely. I learned years ago you can’t fight bro science so in the gym I really do just smile and nod politely.
