Got to see #Starship under construction today!
@SpaceX wants to send humans to the Moon & Mars, they are building Starship to complete the mission. The first hopper test launch will take place in Boca Chica (Brownsville, Texas) around March/April of this year. #BFR #HappyNewYear
Took these photos today. This #Starship “hopper” version that's under construction, won’t reach the 348 feet height of the final version but its diameter of 30 feet does match the #SpaceX design plans.
So much to look forward to at SpaceX South Texas this year. Can't wait to see Starship take off... ♡

C’est imminent ! SEIS devrait être déployé sur #Mars aujourd’hui. Une sorte de 2ème atterrissage pour le sismomètre qui va toucher le sol martien pour la 1ère fois. Un thread à déployer pour en savoir plus ! #SEISsurMars
Les photos martiennes fleurissent depuis l’atterrissage d’@NASAInSight - pour notre plus grand bonheur 🤩 #SEISsurMars
D'ailleurs pour faire votre marché, c'est ici mars.nasa.gov/insight/multim…
Outre leur aspect fascinant, ces images sont très utiles aux équipes qui s’en sont servis pour modéliser la topologie devant InSight et définir le site idéal #SEISsurMars

Oil drilling and climate change have decimated the Yamal Penninsula of Russia. The devastation they have wrought are the subject of the documentary of tonight's @NatGeoChannel #MARS episode.
/2 @Greenpeace Russia reports that every 18 months, over 4 million barrels of oil spew into the Arctic Ocean from Russian operations.
/3 Oil and gas prospecting in the continental sector of the Russian Arctic began as early as in the 1930s, prison labor was used.

J'ai bien envie de vous faire un joli thread des plus belles images satellite de #Mars.... ça vous tente?
On commence avec une formation dunaire assez incroyable: le champ de dunes de Hagal. Situé un peu en dessous du pôle nord martien, beaucoup y voient une page de morse... :)
Motifs polygonaux au fond d'un cratère... Cette structure est rendue bien visible grâce au givre qui coiffe les crêtes de cette étrange toile d'araignée. mars.nasa.gov/multimedia/mar…

.@david_wilcock on the Secret History of the Cabal and their Inevitable Defeat - Part 1: “this Cabal has at it’s core, believe it or not, a Luciferian belief system” #GreatAwakening #QAnon

@Der_Eisenhans I logged out at 24:30 & listened to Bach - Much better.

#Kavanaugh did not impress me: Comes across like a guy who wants to become Sheriff of a small town in #Texas, not #SCOTUS-Judge.
Losing his cool, stories about promoting women, prayers by junior & more, ALL irrelevant!
@Der_Eisenhans 2. #Ford does not always make sense (recalls only one beer 35 years ago, but not documents to the #WaPo a month ago) - Her timing also shows that she has a clear political motive: Prevent #Kavanaugh from becoming #SCOTUS-Judge.
She did not impress.
@Der_Eisenhans 3. But even if we accept that #Kavanaugh is innocent (which he remains in any case until found guilty by a court), his non-performance shows that he is not made out of the stuff a top judge & decision-maker is made off: Presented his case poorly (as a top judge!). TBC

THREAD - How about a bunch of blog posts on #Space and #Astronomy? Yes, I have more than you can imagine - especially since these are really just #physics topics. Hold on - because this is going to be a bit large.
2/ Here is an answer to my fav astronomy question EVER - "What would the phases of the moon look like if the moon was a cube?" wired.com/2015/09/moon-c…
3/ The great thing about the cube moon question is that it really tests if students understand phases of the moon rather than just recalling factual stuff. Here is my python model of a cube and spherical moon

#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.

If there's life on Mars, I seriously doubt they want liberals bringing their radical homogeneous lifestyle to the planet. Heck, the Martians are probably trying to stay hidden to keep away from the nonsense #MarsWater #Mars #WalkAway
Stay off Mars with your crazy plantation mentality. #Democrats
Democrats would attempt to colonize the red planet with their crazy liberal ideas. No thanks!

The fascinating question is how many Trump tweets will it take to completely remove from US news coverage the discovery of a “lake of liquid water” on Mars?
Normally, the discovery of a lake of liquid water on a neighboring planet would be newsworthy because IT’S THE BLEEPIN’ DISCOVERY OF WATER ON #MARS!!!!! But, you know, it’s 2018 and Trump said something on Twitter and Michael Cohen this and that and all those porn stars so...
Hello 👋. THEY JUST DISCOVERED A BLEEPIN’ LAKE OF WATER ON #MARS! That is to say, ON BLEEPIN’ MARS THERE IS A BLEEPIN’ 12.5 MILE WIDE LAKE OF WATER. But, you know, what’s important is 👇🏼. Is it too soon to pack my bags? This planet has become unbearable and easily distracted.

🔴💦 Our #Mars Express satellite has detected liquid #water hidden under the planet’s south polar ice cap. Full story: esa.int/Our_Activities…
We know from orbiters, landers & rovers that #Mars had a wet past, with its vast dried out river channels & minerals that can only form in liquid #water, but it is not stable on the surface anymore, so scientists are looking underground…
Until now evidence from the #Mars Express radar experiment MARSIS, the first radar sounder ever to orbit another planet, remained inconclusive. A new operating mode generating higher-quality data was needed to seek out better evidence for buried #water...

"Le Monde" identifie sur une vidéo un proche conseiller de #Macron frappant violemment un manifestant le 1er mai à Paris. #AlexandreBenalla était équipé d’un casque à visière des forces de l’ordre, alors qu’il n’est pas policier. #MacronLaMatraque lemonde.fr/politique/arti…

So, this convo about qualifications of this curator position for African art at the Brooklyn Museum has gotten me thinking about #SaturnInCapricorn. I would love to know if Brooklyn Museum purposely sought out qualified candidates of color, especially of African descent.
But I also can believe, per even the little I know about the Art AND Archeology field, since both new curators have degrees in that field, that there aren't many sisters & brothers in that field. We are not plentiful in all areas of academia & cultural institutions.
Yes, some of that is systemic racism and based on the root causes of systemic racism. That I've never questioned. But there's another issue here, too. Some folks also don't play the long game, either. That's #SaturnInCapricorn.

T-6 days until @CassiniSaturn burns up in the upper atmosphere of #Saturn. It's has flown for 13 years, and will take pics to #GrandFinale
I'll be highlighting my fav images from @CassiniSaturn over the next week in anticipation of the #GrandFinale on Sept 15. Starting with...
1/ @CassiniSaturn launched aboard a Titan IVB/Centaur in a spectacular night-time launch. Oct 15, 1997. 7 year trip to #Saturn #Grandfinale

It's been awhile since I dropped a thread o' #Mars, so let's try something different today...
1. The hues of #Mars' surface are generally thanks to dust cover—or (relative) lack thereof. Lighter areas = dusty, darker = less dusty.
Oh wow, y'all act fast—I will try to keep up! 😝
