Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight

Kayla the TrekMovie.com science girl here with a special mid-week science mini-update. This evening, February 20th, the full Moon over Europe and the Americas will turn a delightful shade of red.

Science Friday: New Galaxies, Dimensions and Planets…plus Power Clothing

Once we finished mourning Trek’s new release date (actually we just ran out of tissues), we were able to pull it together to bring you this week’s Science Friday! It’s a great one! We’re introducing our ongoing ‘Cassini Watch’ to see what’s happening with Dr. Carolyn Porco (Trek’s new science advisor). Also, a new galactic discovery, Steven Colbert’s opinions of other dimensions, and some pretty electrifying outerwear. Not to mention, our latest gadget of the week!
