What exactly is The Cosmic Ray Show you ask?
From the “welcome” post over at cosmicray.tv :
Simply put, My co-host and I will be giving our viewers current news, educational segments, interviews, space history, and of course, all the nerdy shenanigans and hijinks you’ve come to expect from me.
A good way of looking at our show is that it is “By space geeks, for space geeks”. Seriously! As astronomers, my co-host and I are well aware there are many groups and organizations out there doing great things. We’d like to spread the word about organizations and people who are really making a difference in science.
Of course, the show won’t be just a bunch of talking heads either. We have some awesome segments in the works – behind-the-scenes looks at observatories, night sky guides, book reviews, and more. We’re going to have a great time doing this show, and we hope our viewers have just as good a time watching us.
Being a bit of a hardware tinkerer myself, I always love small and inexpensive projects that provide a BIG BANG for the buck.

This is a full-resolution version of the NASA Curiosity rover descent to Mars, taken by the MARDI descent imager. As of August 20, all but a dozen 1600×1200 frames have been uploaded from the rover, and those missing were interpolated using thumbnail data. The result was applied a heavy noise reduction, color balance, and sharpening for best visibility.
