Climate change influences just about every aspect of our lives. We know carbon dioxide has one of the biggest impacts on it, and that humans are producing an obscene amount. Even without climate change as a factor, we still have plenty of issues with our current method of energy production. There are risks associated with nuclear power, including problems we can’t account for, like Japan’s Fukushima plant.
We’ve been regularly sending men and women into space since the Space Shuttle program began with the launch of STS-1 in 1981. While this was a great step forward in space travel, we never went any further than the orbit of our own planet. Even now, the only manned space travel consists of shuttling astronauts to and from the International Space Station in Soyuz capsules launched from Kazakhstan.
The Cassini spacecraft has been in orbit around Saturn since it reached the gas giant in 2004. Thirteen years later, it will soon be taking its final dive into the ringed planet’s dense core. The Cassini spacecraft history is nearly as rich as the amazing photos it has sent back home over the years. Join us as we explore the life and times of Cassini before it makes its final dive into Saturn Friday morning around 5 a.m. PDT/ 8 a. m. EST. Before 1982, we hadn’t considered studying Saturn closely.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
