When I’m not blogging, I’m browsing. Here are sites and pages that I bookmarked on September 28th:
- Neptune, Uranus ablaze in new infrared photos: The distant “ice giant” planets Uranus and Neptune look like worlds aflame in new photos captured by Hawaii’s Keck Observatory.
- Sopogy gets certification from SRCC: Sopogy has received certification from the Solar Rating and Certification Corp. that will enable the Hawaii solar power company to qualify for state solar programs in California and Arizona.
- Creepy-crawlies may help heal diabetes wounds: Researchers from Hawaii have a suggestion for how to jump-start the healing of difficult diabetic wounds: let maggots do the work.
- NASA to demonstrate communications via laser beam: A new optical communications system that NASA plans to demonstrate in 2016 will lead the way and even allow the streaming of high-definition video from distances beyond the Moon.
- Social Media for Scientists Part 1: It’s Our Job: Contrary to how it might seem, scientists as a group are highly trusted by Americans. We rank second only to military personnel… How to we build and maintain that trust? We have to communicate better.

- Pacific islands to map coastal hazards: Pacific Island researchers will be trained in skills such as coastal hazard mapping as part of a programme to use science to make coastal communities safer and more resilient.
