Nokia hunt

Am enjoying the current Nokia Hunt game here:

The idea is you can win yourself a Nokia N97 (which I love!) for free! If you can find the answers then find the hidden phone that is…

My Nokia Blog is a good place to start too.

Got two out of five so far, just three to go…

Galaxy Zoo Two

It’s back, and better than ever before. Now you can help classify galaxies in even more detail, but still with the excitement of exploring the cosmos and helping expend human knowledge further.

Take part here.

But to see some great evidence of why it’s helpful to take part see this page. It shows galaxies never before seen and certainly not categorised neatly divided up into lots of categories. The “anything odd” section has some really interesting objects in. More info from the Galaxy zoo blog here.

Maze of Rah

This is a cool little game I’ve come across. The idea is the mummy walks along and kicks the last part of the pyramid into place. The puzzle is, he can only follow a certain route and the route changes as he walks over it.

Bonus.comĀ® – Fun and Games!

Be warned, there’s 100 levels…

Edit: you can’t link straight to the game so have a look at the maze sections.

Find the stuff star's are made of..

The stardust nasa mission has just returned to Earth after seven years in space and being bombarded by a comet. Its has on board material stolen from that comet, and should help to understand the origins of our solar system.

It was a successfully touchdown, the parachute opened and as far as is known, the material is on board waiting to be analyzed…

…and the good news is you can help to find it! Berkeley university has created a program that acts like a virtual microscope. You’ll be able to zoom in on the material to try to work out if its actually material that has come from the stars! But first you’ve got to pass a test! The website is here and you can register for the test by giving your email here – I’ve already signed up of course – Good luck!
