About this blog
Welcome to the Geeked on Goddard science blog, a.k.a. gogblog. Gogblog features intriguing research, people, events, and assorted other astro-stuff at Goddard, the largest concentration of Earth and space scientists in the world.
I know what you’re thinking. What, ANOTHER science blog? And what’s up with the “geeked” thing?
Please, allow me to explain.
First of all, calm down, ’cause nobody’s calling you a geek. At gogblog, geek is chic. Most of the people I know who are into science are also fun at parties. Their social skills are completely intact, thank you very much. Most of them can even get a date on a Saturday night. Nope, not a pocket protector as far as the eye can see.
To be geeked on Goddard simply means to be filled with excitement, interest, or zeal about the incredible amazingness of our planet, the solar system, and the vast universe of stars, galaxies, and gas clouds beyond. It means you are hungry to understand the cosmos.
Sound like you? Well, great! You are (like me) geeked on science, and you are most welcome here.
“Here” is Goddard Space Flight Center. Gogblog will allow you to visit (virtually) this rich and diverse scientific institution. You’ll get to know some of the scientists, engineers, and technologists at Goddard who are privileged to make their living by advancing human knowledge.
Technorati recently reported that the blogosphere consists of more than 200 million weblogs. Yes: 200 million. Seems like everyone has one. Presidents. Potentates. Pets.
And into this global blogospheric cloud of white noise comes Geeked On Goddard. Why should you devote any of your overtaxed blog browsing time to gogblog?
I know, it’s a lot to ask. But try it and see. What’s the harm? You might just get geeked.
OH AND DID I MENTION? All opinions and opinionlike objects in this blog are mine alone and NOT those of NASA or Goddard Space Flight Center.
