Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017.

I took a couple of vacation days this past week and headed down to Carbondale, IL to see the total solar eclipse.
For those on facebook, here is an album of some of my photos.

Here is a video taken during totality, when day immediately turned to dusk for 2 minutes and 40 seconds.

You have never truly experienced an eclipse until you have experienced totality! It was worth the trip from SW MI! I left Sunday Night and didn't hit traffic until Mt. Vernon, IL on Monday Morning. I left hours after the eclipse and spent the night in Terre Haute, IN and went home on Tuesday.
I'll put some public photos up on Flickr later, if I can remember my account password.

I'm glad you got to see that. My trip to see the eclipse was cancelled because of cancer. I hope one day we discover a cure.

Re: Solar Eclipse, August 21, 2017.

We are doing better. I do cancer research and have been becoming more hopey lately. The so-called "checkpoint inhibitors" for example, took only about 6 years between knowing what the programmed death ligands do and getting drugs invented and approved - and they are nearly magic for some people. They are being tested in dozens of trials on different kinds of cancer, and new approvals are coming about once per month I think. Just a week or two ago CAR-tcells were approved for some leukemias - it's an astonishing trick, and it's just the beginning of the beginning. Cell based therapies of various other kinds are finally looking near to working, like educating macrophages, or expanding selected killer T-cell subsets. All the things I just mentioned are immune system tricks, but there's progress on other fronts too. I'm working on fighting Notch pathway (in AML, brain tumors), and Wnt-pathway (Colon, ovarian), with small molecules. Thousands of people have dedicated their lives to these fights. We also have HPV vaccines, and I hope to see a decrease in Head-and-Neck cancers in men (it's increasing now), and anal cancers kinda suck too - preventing cancer is even better than treating it. If you do science, these are the days we have hoped for. Things finally move fast. When I started out, it took us a year just to clone a gene.

Best wishes.
