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
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.
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...
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.
