Want to learn about the rocks of Mt #Everest and the #EBC trek? I am a geologist and did a couple of roadside lectures and field observations on my trek; here are some of the cool rocks l found. 1/n #geology #Himalayas #Nepal #adventure #Science #academia #nature
Over 50 million years ago, there was an ocean between India and Eurasia, the Tethys ocean. The ocean closed and the two continental plates collided forming the Himalayas. The Himalayas are still growing today! 2/n
Imagine being pressed between two continental plates! That pressure forms metamorphic rocks that can be categorized into how much pressure was applied to the rock. At low pressure, former mudstones from the bottom of the ocean become slate: grey, flaky rocks. 3/n

This is from #DailyTelegraph 21/7 issue. Paper has form for occult elite symbolism, so wouldn't be surprised if it's comms about #HillaryClinton. Possum female, called Hillary. Yet it alludes to Edmund Hillary in headline. Remember how #HRC lied about being named after him?
To climb mountain means to meet big challenge. And story refers to death of twin. #HRC uses doubles. Likely shorter one at #BidenInauguration (height next to Bill revealed this). Also, playing possum means feigning death. Is this saying she died, or narrowly avoided it?
Or symbolic in more general way? Maybe meaning is that even though Hillary Clinton didn't become POTUS, as NWO crowd expected, her spirit survives. It's here in Hillsdale (#Sydney) in form of COVID tyranny. Still reached #Everest peak, rules from "on top of the world".

People say 'What's there in a name?'

A lot, when it comes to history.

This is story of a man called Radhanath Sikdar, a mathematician from West Bengal.

#wednesdaythought #Everest #Story
Sikdar worked as 'the Chief Computer' while working on The Great Trigonometrical Survey of India in 18th century. He could precisely calculate height of mountains using rudimentary instruments.
This was when most of the world considered Kangchenjunga as the tallest mountain.
In the year 1852, while mapping different Himalayan peaks, Sikdhar came across a very tall mountain. He recorded the height to be 8839 mtrs, making it the tallest mountain.

#Nepal is located in the southern foot of the #Himalayas. Eight of the world's 10 highest peaks over 8000 meters are in Nepal. It has the best hiking trails in the world and is known as a 'paradise for hikers'. This thread will show 4 classic #hikingroutes in Nepal.
1. #Boone Mountain Small Circle Line: This line is basically the entry-level version of the Nepal hiking line. As long as you are healthy, normal people can easily walk through it.
The characteristic of this route is that the mountain loop can be completed in the shortest time, and the #Annapurna mountains can be easily viewed from a distance.

Abrimos hilo sobre #VFX, donde muestro planos de películas antes y después del trabajo de efectos visuales, y os enseño el proceso por pasos en #GIFs animados. ¿Va?
Empezamos con esta escena de #DoctorStrange. Aquí podéis ver qué es real y qué es digital.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine
Seguimos con #TheMartian. Podéis ver que se rodó en un set bastante completo y que digitalmente se añadieron el paisaje marciano del fondo, los efectos atmosféricos y la corrección de color. Aquí por pasos y capas.
#DelSetALaPantalla #cine #VFX #EfectosVisuales #GIFs
Continuamos con varios planos de #AliceInWonderland (2010) de Tim Burton. Como veis en ocasiones hay sets de rodaje, pero en otras lo único que se conserva del plate rodado es a las actrices y poco más.

You've probably seen this viral Hillary Step pic taken by ex Gurkha & SBS speed climber @nimsdai. 10 people have died this yr on Everest, 20 including other peaks.

Everyone you see is in the death zone >8000m. Every minute spent queueing brings death closer, waits up to 2 hrs.
For a recent influx of new followers (welcome!), I made a video about what makes the Sherpa such amazing climbers. They are superhuman. At the end I mention the conditions they face & how you can help
A great Twitter account to follow if you're interested

Just a tiny challenge to fit all this and stay within the airlines luggage restrictions 😅

Next: She will have a stop over in #Doha from 3pm (CET) until around midnight (CET) and then continue on to #Kathmandu. More 2 follow on #Boardroom2Everest
4) Safe arrival in #Doha. Possibly more Swiss chocolate there than in Zurich 🤔 Last work emails are being answered. Flight to #Kathmandu departs in around 3 hours. ImageImage
