DailyDirt: Satellites Measure All Sorts Of Stuff...

- Satellite measurements of the upper atmosphere could lead to forecasting models for earthquakes. Days before a massive earthquake, detectable ionization and heat buildup in the atmosphere can be seen -- but it's still uncertain exactly what the mechanism for this is. [url]
- The Kepler telescope has taken stellar photometry to the next level -- and needs help to analyze all the data it's gathering. It sounds like amateur astronomers could have a decent chance at making some interesting discoveries... [url]
- Telescopes need to be calibrated, so there's a proposal to put a light bulb in orbit as a standard reference for light sources. Hubble and other space-based satellites already have internal references, but an orbiting light bulb could serve the same purpose for other telescopes and ground-based telescopes. [url]
