  1. Learn More About Jupiter’s Shrinking Red Spot In This Livestreaming Google Hangout

Today at 4pm EDT, astronomers Tony Darnell and Dr. Carol Christian will meet in a Google Hangout to discuss these observations, and we've got the feed for you right here.

  2. Awkward Pauses in Online Calls Make the Other Person Think Less of You, Just Like You Always Suspected

    Being vindicated never felt so massively upsetting.

    It's happened to everyone at least once: you're talking to someone over Skype or Google Hangout, and there's a connection problem that causes you to interrupt your conversation partner. Rational logic would dictate that you'd both understand the situation and take it in stride. Your anxiety disorder says the opposite. Guess which one's right?

  5. White House Doing a “We the Geeks” Google Hangout Tomorrow

    Despite Obama being the one to get hard-core nerds all in a tizzy by confusing Star Trek and Star Wars last March.

    With politicians making noise over American graduates moving to other countries, the White House is using this issue as a jumping off point for comprehensive immigration reform and aiming to attract "geeks" from around the world to immigrate here. Thus they are hosting a Google+ Hangout on "Making the U.S. a Geek Magnet" tomorrow at noon, EDT.

  8. Watch Live as SETI Institute Announces Official Names of Pluto’s Smallest Known Moons

    The public voted and decided the names should be "Vulcan" and "Kerberos", but it won't be official until SETI says it is.

    Today at 12:00 PM EDT you can jump on a Google Hangout with SETI to hear the official naming of Pluto's two smallest known moons. SETI held a vote a few months ago, and the winning names were "Vulcan" and "Cerberus." Cerberus is already the name of an asteroid, so to avoid any confusion they're expected to use the alternate Greek spelling "Kerberos." We've got the live video right here.

    In what is quickly turning into a verifiable "thing," the astronauts living aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will be answering another round of your questions in a Google Hangout in just one hour. The Hangout, which will see Chris Hadfield, Kevin Ford, and Tom Marshburn field your inquiries about their life and work on the ISS, will run from 10:30 to 11:30 EST, because seriously, you didn't expect them to spend all day fielding questions, did you? These guys have jobs, you know.

  13. Live Stream Obama’s Fireside Google Hangout Here

    Was the State of the Union earlier this week fun, but just not enough President for you? Well, good news -- Obama is doing a Google Hangout, and we'll have the live stream right here. This isn't Obama's first "Fireside Hangout" -- he did one about a year ago -- but it's the first one of his second term, and hopefully a sign that these will be a habit going forward. Yes, it's going to be at least a little canned and PR-ish, but hey, it's the damn President, nothing's not at least sort of planned. Still, it's a fun way to be interactive that doesn't make anyone leave the office, and that works for us. Plus, you might get an answer for why the hell we still make pennies, and wouldn't that be nice?

  15. Hang Out With CERN This Thursday, Talk About Particle Physics and Mice Versus Mammoths

    Sunday saw the first Large Hadron Collider physics beams of the year. Hooray! The scientists at CERN smashed together lead ions and protons in an attempt to study quark-gluon plasma, believed to be the primordial state of matter in the moments after the Big Bang. If that all sounds very complicated and you'd like someone to explain it you who really knows what they're talking about, now's your chance! Rather, Thursday is your chance. The folks at CERN will be hosting another Google Hangout to talk about the new beams, why they're using lead ions, and who would win in a fight between a mouse and a mammoth.
