Seguimos con las aplicaciones de la #tecnología #nuclear más allá de las centrales. ¿Sabías que en la actualidad hay hasta 5 vehículos espaciales que funcionan gracias a baterías nucleares? Te contamos qué son y cómo han ayudado a la exploración espacial 🚀
¡Dentro hilo!
Estas baterías se llaman generadores termoeléctricos de radioisótopos (en inglés, Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator o RTG) y desde los años 60 se usan para suministrar electricidad a las sondas y vehículos que exploran los confines del sistema solar 🪐 Fuente: Robert D. Abelson. Thermoelectrics Handbook: Macro t
¿Y cómo funcionan? 🤔 Un RTG se basa en el fenómeno físico de la desintegración radiactiva, por el cual un núcleo atómico inestable libera parte de su energía mediante la emisión de partículas (electrones, fotones, neutrones, etc.) a las que llamamos #radiación

Yes, it's still me, I'm still here and I have one more thread to go today for #SciWri20! It's the Q & A for "Firestorms in the outback, taiga, and tundra" one of our #NewHorizons videos with @waytgibbs featuring Michael-Shawn Fletcher @manammichelle @bhiamie and @queenofpeat
@queenofpeat says investing in green climate policies is the only true way to change things. But we are seeing a shift in thought to protecting permafrost as well as structures. #SciWri20 #Firestorms
@theotheroad (Michael Fletcher) says that he's noted in his work that there's so much more fuel in the landscape now than there would be with indigenous land management. When colonization displaces indigenous people off their land, you're going to have problems. #SciWri20

Hace algún tiempo me preguntaron, en una conversación entre amigos, sobre la vida en Próxima-b y sobre cómo habían desaparecido los dinosaurios, porque lo del meteorito era poco creíble (ejem...🙄). #hilo Image
Básicamente le expliqué que era poco creíble si estás acostumbrado a ver en el cine glaciaciones que se desarrollan en 48 horas...
... detecciones de asteroides que impactarán sobre la Tierra en menos de un mes, o recreaciones por ordenador que aceleran el time-lapse para transmitir todo lo que se quiere contar en apenas 5 minutos.

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

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
