Beyond Montana: Mule Deer and their Incredible Journey

Say hello to these mule deer:

They’re cute-looking creatures, aren’t they? This is a photo taken years back, somewhere in Montana.

I mention them today because of their fascinating migration story, which evoked emotions akin to when I first heard about the penguin’s story.

These deer spend several months travelling across 150 miles via the Red Desert-to-Hoback route. Right now, the route is surprisingly clear from any human obstruction but that can well change – part of the trek includes a single path, with a land that is currently for sale.

Fortunately, the Conservation Fund has purchased that land to preserve it but it will take months more of observation and tracking to be able to fully preserve this route.

Neil deGrasse Tyson in Montana State University this March

I am looking forward to Neil deGrasse Tyson’s talk at MSU this coming March 4! His passion in science clearly shows in the manner he talks, and I would very much like to behold his passion in person. Though I have always found myself gravitating towards numbers and business-related topics, I feel that immersing myself in other fields from time to time allows me to expand my horizons, and stretch my mind.

Just a few things about the astrophysicist:

1. he has a doctorate in astrophysics from Columbia University
2. he was awarded the NASA Distinguished Public Service Medal, the highest civilian honor bestowed by NASA.
3. he is a host of several science TV programs
4. he was last year’s Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Reality Show Host, for his show “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey” (that he was chosen above shows like The Voice, and So You Think You Can Dance tells me the world has hope yet!)
5. He was named as one of the 10 most influential people in science in a 2008 issue of Discover Magazine Learn more about
