                  Leonids Meteor Shower

When Nov 17 – 18, 2011
http://www.seasky.org/astronomy/astronomy-calendar-2011.html

  The Leonids is one of the better meteor showers to observe,  
producing an average of 40 meteors per hour at their peak.  The shower  
itself has a cyclic peak year every 33 years where hundreds of meteors  
can be seen each hour.  The last of these occurred in 2001.  The  
shower usually peaks on November 17 & 18, but you may see some meteors  
from November 13 -  20.  The nearly last quarter moon may hide some of  
the faintest meteors this year, but this should still be an excellent  
show.  Look for the shower radiating from the constellation Leo after  
midnight.

Android Unix, & the emerging age of Ubiquitous Computing.

                                                                                                                  by 
  Ryan Withers

  I'm going to focus on the following:

1. What is meant when people say, "I rooted my phone"

2. Using the IDE

3. The role of the OS in supporting an application

  4. Gathering information from third party apps using the debugging  
environment.

  5. Making remote calls to external services or systems.

  6. A section on Davlik

  7. A timeline showing some of the innovations between now and when  
android was first released.  I think people start to take for granted  
the amount of and the pace of change in this space and then they don't  
realize every little shift that has taken place.  It's good to step  
back and take an inventory of where the platform has been.  I'll  
probably cover a few other miscellaneous topics that may fit in with  
the UNIX aspects of Android.

Fri, November 18, 7:30pm – 9:00pm
WhereWashington University, McDonnell Hall Room 162, St. Louis, MO 63130

  http://www.slasonline.org/  or call (314)935-4614.

an illustrated lecture by Dr. Matthias Beilicke of Washington  
University, will be featured at the November meeting of the StL  
Astronomical Society.  McDonnell Hall is accessible from Forsyth  
Boulevard via Tolman Way.  The event, cosponsored by NASA's Missouri  
Space Grant Consortium, is open to the public free of charge.          
We used to think of the Universe as a quiet, peaceful place.  Stars  
sparkled serenely through the jet black of outer space, seemingly  
changeless and eternal.  That picture has changed.  Stars much more  
massive than our sun voraciously consume their nuclear fuel and then  
suffer violent deaths in supernova explosions.   Enormous black holes  
lurk in the centers of many galaxies, pulling in dust and gas and  
spewing some of this material out in ultra-high speed jets extending  
for thousands of trillions of miles.  These most violent of  
astronomical objects produce torrents of the highest energy particles  
– gamma rays.    Special instruments are needed to detect gamma rays  
and so observe these objects.  Dr. Beilicke will explain how these  
Cherenkov telescopes work. He will also highlight recent discoveries  
from gamma ray observations of supernova explosions, nebulae glowing  
from the winds of pulsars, the center of the Milky Way galaxy, and  
huge galaxies that are so distant that their light takes millions of  
years to reach us.
