OK, buckle up, kiddos—here's a 🧵 on our new Geology paper about the enigmatic tesserae on #Venus, and what our new results mean for our understanding of the Hell Planet

Here we go! Image
First off: what *are* the tesserae (sing. "tessera")?

In short: dunno! Ha.

The longer answer is that they're very heavily tectonically deformed rocks, and where they're found they're the oldest things around: everything else is on top of them.

Here's what they look like: Image
Lots of work has focused on the tesserae since they were discovered in the 1980s (and named by Russian scientists for parquet flooring!).

We've found lines in several tessera units that curve in such a way that they seem to follow topography. And that's a bit... unexpected. Image

Things have quietened enough that I'm going to share my thoughts about the detection of #phosphine on #Venus announced yesterday.

In short: this is a BIG fucking deal. And here's why:

(a 🧵)
Phosphine (PH₃) is a fairly rare gas. It forms in giant planets, like #Jupiter, because of the extreme conditions inside them (and because of their hydrogen-rich atmospheres). Neither condition applies to Venus.

PH₃ is also produced by biological activity.
As a result, it's thought to be a useful thing to look for in the atmospheres of #exoplanets that might be habitable.

But nobody expected to find it in the atmosphere of Venus—a world the team led by Prof. Greaves (@jgreaves6) used to test their detection methods.

Catching up on the exciting news about #Venus? We've just been taking a look at the way the UK press has reported the story about phosphine being detected in the atmosphere of Venus. Ready for a newspaper review? Buckle-up, here we go! #VenusNews
(Only) two papers decided to put the Venus story on their front page - @thetimes and @theipaper #VenusNews #Venus Both of them note that it's not Mars we're talking about in the search for life this time...
The Times piece is measured and gives a clear explanation of the story - noting that @jgreaves6 was "stunned" by the discovery. Final line is a quote from Caleb Sharf, Director of the Columbia Astrobiology Centre who doesn't seem so excited by the result. #VenusNews #Venus

Si usted creía que el 2020 no se podía poner más interesante, hoy se publicó un estudio en la revista @NatureAstronomy donde se reporta la detección de un posible biomarcador en la atmósfera del planeta #Venus. Y esto qué tiene de interesante? En #ElDesparche se lo contamos. 1/
Parte de la comunidad astronómica está interesada en la búsqueda de “biomarcadores”: Gases/Compuestos que son producto de la actividad biológica y que *podrían* indicar la presencia de vida. En la Tierra tenemos por ejemplo el Oxígeno, el Ozono y el Metano! #ElDesparche 2/
El Fosfano (PH3) es un potencial biomarcador, ya que en la Tierra se relaciona únicamente con procesos biológicos, en particular, con ecosistemas y microorganismos que no necesitan de Oxígeno. También se produce industrialmente para la elaboración de insecticidas. #ElDesparche 3/

1-Today we shall continue to dive deeper into the aspects of #Past #Life #Astrology.

And the very first word that comes to mind is #Karma.

#Karma is actually a poorly understood term.

Most people think of Karma and might think of punishment and retribution. (1/25)
2-The fact is Karma is like a #Cosmic, ongoing, Instruction Design of God.

Karma is rather concerned with #Evolution and #Growth.

@BabaRamDass used to often say, “May be the #Law of #Karma itself is #God” (2/25)

3-Just like Ether, Karma is all-embracing and has a myriad of #Manifestations

The #Cosmos operates at different levels of #Karma –from Personal Karma to the Karma of entire nations or communities. (3/25)

Good Morning!

Continuing our #Dialogue on #Gems and #GemTherapy, today we shall dwell on the next two #GemStones.

#YellowSapphire and #Diamond. (1/13)

2-Yellow Sapphire is D highest quality Gemstone used 4 #Jupiter.

Substitute Gemstones for Yellow Sapphire are Yellow Tourmaline, #Citrine, Yellow #Zircon and #Topaz.

In my view, I have seen that Yellow Sapphire is one of the most widely prescribed Gemstone. (2/13)

3-Being related to #Jupiter it is bound to activate within you – the #Energy of the #Universal #Guru.

Out of the four #Vedic #Purusharthas, of #Dharma, #Artha, #Kama and #Moksha, Yellow Sapphire well and truly stands for #Dharma.

1-Through the #Grace of the #Godeess ,we have been on a cosmic #Joyride since quite some time now!

Let’s continue with the same with the discussions on some more #Shakti #Mantras! (1/21)

2-Let’s begin today with #Klim

Klim – pronounced as #Kleem is about the wonderful, seductive #God - #Krishna

#Klim is blissful and full of #Ananda – because Krishna is #Bliss (pure #Ananda!) (2/21)

3-#Klim also relates to #Sundari the #Goddess of #Love, #Beauty and #Transcendence

#Klim activates #Desire, #Love and #Attraction

In #VedicAstrology #Klim is used to invoke #Venus and sometimes #moon. (3/21)

1-We have been talking about #Mantras and their place in the #Vedic #Tradition.

Today, let’s dwell on the #Shakti Mantras – quite perhaps the most #esoteric and #Powerful entities in their own right. (1/19)

2-A word of caution here.

Shakti Mantras are like an Atomic Bomb

They are extremely powerful

..and should be practiced with due consideration, initiation and guidance by your #Guru and under your full #Intuition. (2/19)

@ijyotish @shashankupadhy_

3-Fundamentally, Shakti Mantras are extremely powerful, mono or single syllabled mantras.

In the higher Yogic practices they have a special usage. (3/19)

Venus in Cancer 🦀 Thread. In my personal opinion Venus in Cancer and Venus in Taurus are two of the more simplistic less complicated Venus placements. I don’t mean this in a negative way.
Venus is the planet of attraction, appreciation and relating. It is also linked to worth -self worth & tangible worth. Remember Venus naturally corresponds with Taurus & the 2nd house “I have” & Libra & the 7th house “I relate”
We always have to take the house placement & aspects into consideration. While Venus in Cancer as a stand alone can signify deep appreciation for traditional marriage if that Venus squares/opposes/conjoins Uranus ...maybe not so much

1-A lot of people sometimes contact me – for what is perhaps unique to #India!

They call it #HoroscopeMatching.

And it is undertaken mostly just before the marriage season commences – around the end of #October. (1/29)

2-Over the years I have gathered a certain little understanding about this beautiful aspect of #Vedic #Astrology

And today, we shall dwell a little on it (2/29)

3-Though, our #Scriptures have a very clear and definitive commentary on this aspect,

..I have found the works of Hart De Fouw particularly helpful for a #Learner.

Here is a #simplified version of the understanding. (3/29)

June 3, 2020 — Inferior Conjunction.
Venus will finally transition from an evening star "Hesperus" to a morning star "Phosphorus"

"Mother's moon" match:

Phosphorus (morning star)……

Damn, watching the backlash from that #LudacrisvsNelly #RKelly verse tells me that the #retrograde energies of #Venus #Jupiter #Pluto & #Saturn are in full effect. Watch what you say cuz truth will be revealed swiftly and dealt with accordingly. #astrology
#RKelly is a Capricorn, Jupiter, Pluto are both retrograding in #Capricorn- big exposure of abuses of power, Saturn retro in #Aquarius- community/social activism and revolution, Venus retro in #Gemini- reminiscing on past music/pleasure through the internet. #ludavsnelly #Verzuz
The whole #ludavsnelly #verzuz "battle" contrast to the previous #JillScottVsErykahBadu vibe session only illustrates that the Age of Pisces, with its duality, dog eat dog, patriarchial, abuses of power, egocentric, selfish mentality is ending and the #AgeOfAquarius has begun

#Saturn being #Lagensh is #Benefic for both #Kundalis. sitting in the #BhagyaSthaan it acts as #Jaataks benefactor. Especially so for 2) as in the 9th #Bhaav of #Libra #Saturn is #Unch #Oonch #Exalted.
#Rahu is friendly to #Saturn & in both #Kundali it can be #AtiYogKaarak as its placed with it (#Rahu naturally wants to be like #Saturn, but its just a mimik of its #Depositor) in the #Trikon. So in 1) it is placed in #Virgo (#Mercury) & in 2) its placed in #Libra (#Venus).

Day 3 of the #VeneraD workshop!

And we're pivoting away from landing sites now and turning to cloud habitability - with the first talk given by Michael Way, about possible conditions on early #Venus!
The next talk is from Shawn Domagal-Goldman, who's describing (remotely, from the US!) how #Venus offers us a useful natural laboratory to understand planetary habitability in general

Up next: Sanjay Limaye is talking about the still-unknown absorbers of sunlight in the #Venus atmosphere - and the tantalizing possibility that there could be *microbes* in that atmosphere...

1. @ExtinctionR Having looked at some of your policies & grievances my advice to you as a scientist is to do your own research before you jump to conclusions; resist the temptation to go down a EnergyDeadEnd path before really appreciating after years of research life's realities
2. @ExtinctionR scenario has come about through a few scientists exaggerating #ClimateChange which is a natural phenomena that has occurred since Earth had an atmosphere; one of the variables keeping us warm is yes photosynthesising #TraceGas #CO2 as well as water vapour (clouds)
3. @ExtinctionR Earth's CO2 levels vary over time & currently only 0.041% or to make it sound larger 410ppm on average; at levels below 200ppm to 150ppm #photosynthesis ceases & all life relying on plants will die off.
Many other variables are involved with #ClimateChange e.g.Sun

Today we'd like to share some fun facts about #Mars and our discoveries so far with #ESA Mars Express & @ESA_TGO. But first let's take a look at the @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos spacecraft currently investigating the Red Planet:
📷Hi-res:… #ExploreFarther
@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know there is a telecommunications network at #Mars? Orbiters relay commands and send #science data from landers & rovers back to #Earth. Our #ExoMars @ESA_TGO is a key provider of data relay services!🔴〰️🛰〰️🌍 #ExploreFarther
@ESA_TGO @esa @NASA @isro @roscosmos Did you know that you can find out what the #weather is on #Mars? Landers & rovers report the local weather while orbiters keep an eye on global atmosphere developments including cloud formations and dust storms☁️🌪

Planet with the highest degrees in your Sidereal/Vedic chart signifies YOU/Soul.

Your Vedic BirthChart is the contract your Soul signed to get the body you got to experience.

Its just that our mind in not consciously AWARE of this agreement, hence it wanders...contd
If #Sun is your #Atmakaraka , Planet with the most degrees in your sidereal/#VedicBirthChart:

Your Soul is here to experience authority, leadership, respect, appreciation, recognition

Challenges - Avoiding Egoistic behavior, Learning to be humble
If #Moon is your #Atmakaraka , Planet with the most degrees in sidereal/#VedicBirthChart:

Your Soul is here to experience emotional support, happiness, mental peace, Romance

Challenges - Learning to deal with negative thoughts, emotional balance, keeping calm, practicality

Just minutes ago I got the notification that our team's proposal to build a high temp, long lived camera for the surface of #Venus.
This will be low mass, low power, and require no cooling. Imagine putting your mobile phone in an oven, turning on the clean setting, and having it function perfectly normally.
Put another way, this will transform our understanding of #Venus the way the Viking lander cameras transformed our understanding of Mars.

Venus entered Aquarius today! I've got some thoughts on #venusinaquarius that I'm thinking with. I'm not sure this'll be a megathread (I've been sick so I'm kind of tapped out) but I'm going to start writing and see where it goes. #astrology #thread #venus #aquarius
By the way, skip a few tweets down if you want to get to the point.
I want to start with my wordplay joke from yesterday. If you recall, I said Venus in Aquarius was a s c e t i c, which is a vaporwave joke as much as it is a wordplay joke.

#Venus isn’t particularly comfortable in Scorpio that is one of the reasons it is said to be in detriment. Venus is a superficial planet; it wants to enjoy life, luxuriate, flirt you can see how being placed in the deep plunging bottom of the pit; Scorpio can be Problematic

#Venus has strong associations with bubbles, because they bring joy, pleasure, and excitement, and are frequently used to mark happy occasions.
They are a literal representation of #effervescence, which is a #Venusian feature, and are often paired with #sugar (ruled by Venus), as in #soda, or used in #alcoholic beverages, which reduce social inhibitions and can stir the libidinal instincts.
For those reasons, #Venus is associated with #champagne, mineral water, and #bubbly drinks of all variety. They, along with #greentea, make great Venus #offerings.
