Do you have 5 extra minutes in your day? Can you pull yourself away from Angry Birds to take in a little science? If so, check out ScienceCast, a YouTube channel dedicated to short videos on a range of space topics. The most recent video describes the lunar eclipse that can be seen on October 8th. There is also an awesome video about fire in space, along with ongoing research on the International Space Station and how to put out fires in microgravity due to its strange behavior in this foreign environment. Fire in space floats around until it runs out of fuel, which makes it a dangerous situation. You can find ScienceCast here.
