In Boston, filming an episode on the heritability of physical traits, with @Harvard's @sapinker & @geochurch. One of the two, genetics indicated, has high athletic potential — which garnered a chuckle.

A lost opportunity. They should have connected a Flux Capacitor [Video: 7 sec] https://t.co/4JuleT5tZX

When contemplating the cosmos, we don’t always know all that we don’t know. So for me, I yearn for the questions I don’t yet know to ask.

Omg! 😱 Columbia Glacier, Alaska 🎥 YT: Skeater https://t.co/0P4aLuacxl

Meanwhile, back at Columbia Glacier, Alaska After departing land, a chunk of "flowing" glacial ice had been forced underwater -- until this moment. It then broke loose, and bobbed up, seeking buoyant equilibrium as a free-floating iceberg. [Video: 30 sec] https://t.co/EN4za9V6Eh

So cool! 1. Look for ten seconds at the black and white spinning circles 2. Now see Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’ come to life! ✨ 3. RT if it worked for you 😊 https://t.co/SlO0HmUH7W

Curious about that canine with whom I was ROTFL? A co-woorker's Support Dog named Elenasto, which means “Stardust” in Quenyan Elvish.

Ever notice how enthusiastic your dog can be? In life expectancy, a single day for humans corresponds to a week for dogs. Maybe they know this. And maybe that's why they make every day count. https://t.co/lHTZLIyxbn

Note to HOLLYWOOD: No reason to think space aliens would have the same array of senses — sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell — as humans. They could have more senses than we do. Or all their senses could be completely different from ours.

Note to HOLLYWOOD: A space alien with no DNA in common with life on Earth should look more different from life on Earth than **any** two life forms on Earth look from each other.

You'd be inexcusably egocentric to suggest that Earth was the only place in the observable Universe with life -- among the hundred-billion galaxies, each containing a hundred-billion stars orbited by a hundred-billion planets. Yet how terrifyingly lonely it would be, if true.
