In July 1969 the Apollo 11 astronauts conducting several tasks during extravehicular activity (EVA) operations on the surface of the moon. The EVA lasted approximately 2.5 hours with all scientific activities being completed satisfactorily. #OneGiantLeap

#Apollo11 landed on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

That's #OneSmallStep for [a] man, #OneGiantLeap for mankind.

Our recent work uses #kefir – a natural milk fermenting community – to unravel mechanisms of coexistence in complex communities. Now on bioRxiv: biorxiv.org/content/10.110… (thread 1/5)
We show how microbes poorly suited for milk surprisingly dominate the kefir community through metabolic cooperation. The kefir grain acts as a ‘basecamp’ for this complex community (30-50 species), from which they colonize the milk in a complex yet organized manner (thread 2/5)
The ability of the microbial species in kefir to stick together and collaborate is what makes them successful, e.g. by being more stress resistant. This image shows one of the interaction networks we uncovered for kefir species

As a child, how would you have liked moving schools in new cities with different cultures every 2-4 years?

Growing up in the #IndianArmy, I absolutely loved it! By the time I was 18, we had moved over 9 times across 9 states! #Diversity #India #TravelTuesday #IWS #VoicesIWS
My #memories of #India include sunny days, welcoming people, rich heritage, vibrant colors, abundant fruits and mouth-watering street food! #IWS #VoicesIWS

It doesn’t seem to be as easy as it looks like 😋
My version 🤠
Its definitely worse than the last time 🍳
1. Its over cooked from the outside.
2. Runny from the inside.
Possibilities why it went wrong:
1. Very hot pan to start with?
2. No enough scrambling?
Positives:
It tastes good to me😋
Take those points in account & try again next week.

We’re running a live Outbreak Control exercise w reps from @RCTCouncil @swpolice @WelshGovernment @CV_UHB @CwmTaf @H_S_E & PHW! #WPHC17
This exercise is live and unscripted - a demonstration of the serious and immediate nature of high-risk public health scenarios. #WPHC17
The scenario: microbiology has confirmed 4 cases of an infectious disease within 1 week; 1 deceased, no clear link between cases. #WPHC17
