You're turning 1 🕯️ in a few days' time.

I'm still shocked how almost 20,000 people visit every month just from organic traffic.

A number of posts have done extremely well.

A mega #comet — one so humongous, it was previously misidentified as a dwarf planet! — is approaching our solar system!

Thread! 👇
In 2014, astronomers Pedro Bernardinelli and Gary Bernstein discovered a celestial object and classified it as a dwarf planet.

However, the body was later reclassified as a comet, after it showed signs of activity.
Now, scientists have found that this mega-comet, named the Bernardinelli-Bernstein Comet, has a diameter of a whopping 160 km!

In comparison, the Hale-Bopp comet, which was dubbed the 'Great Comet' back in 1997, has a 30 km diameter and less than 10 times the mass.

The #OortCloud—a shell of debris in the farthest reaches of our #SolarSystem—may consist of more #interstellar objects as compared to local bodies from our own system, as per new research.

It was only two years ago that humans discovered Borisov: the first and only interstellar comet to enter our solar system from a completely foreign star system.

But now, the new study suggests such phenomena might not be too rare!
But if so, why have we only ever seen just one interstellar object so far?

According to study authors, that's simply because we don’t have the technology to see the others yet.

BaSotho's relationship with the #cosmos if of stellar proportions, literally. They have practically lived in the #celestial environment if you listen to them (SeSotho). They speak of things an eye does not see, narrate events unheard of and this is what ties them to the #dogon.💫
They have studied the #solarsystem, patterns and meanings and this is woven into SeSotho. When a MoSotho says "Ketla ho fapanya le pula" or "Ketla ho bontsha Tosa le madinyane a yona(Jupiter and and it's little moons)" you better stop whatever that it is you're doing, redzone!
They follow stars and #constellations to guide their lunar cycle activities. Selemela is Usar Major/Minor and it's arrival means ploughing must start, Ho Lema is farming. Molalatladi, a place where lighting lies is the Milky Lane and they believe it is related to the rainbow🌈

Brahmand is in the shape of an egg that’s why the name. Sandhi - Brahm + Anda per Bhagwat. Before the Big Bang there was nothing in brahmand. Hence it is also called Mrutanda. The first to be born out of this emptiness was Sun. Hence Sun is also called Martanda. #SolarSystem
The sun has always been the primary giver of life both conspicuously and inconspicuously. It regulates everything. It is our soul. It elevates us.
Our belief is the entire earth rests on shesh naag. Recent studies confirm the same. Patal Lok referred to in our scriptures refers to Peru and surrounding countries where Mai civilisation was said to flourish

#Venus Isn’t Habitable Today, and It May All Be #Jupiter’s Fault: Study…

By @kun5k Image
In early September 2020, potential indicators of life were discovered on #Venus, when scientists detected the presence of phosphine on its clouds.
However, as of now, #Earth’s sister planet remains a world that is not conducive to life as we know it, and the biggest planet in our #solarsystem might be the one to blame for this shortcoming.

Y'all remember my series #ScienceBehind that used to air on Wednesdays? It's cool if you don't - a LOT has been going on.

I don't have a new video but let's do a new installment via tweet thread (I know it's not an innovative idea but I remembered there's science this week)
Okay so on New Year's Day, we aired a segment on perihelion 🌍. Shameless plug here if you want a refresher

#13newsnow #ScienceBehind #STEMeducation
Fast forward 6 months (hey, that's today!) and now we're 3 days out from the opposite of perihelion [☀️➡️🌍] -- aphelion [☀️➡️➡️➡️🌍]

Emojis not close to scale so don't come for me.

Who wants to see the #Diversity data for @STFC_Matters, that was released by @UKRI_News last week?

The full data release is here, so if you want to see anything for yourself, go ahead:…
@STFC_Matters funds research & training into astronomy, particle physics, space & planetary sciences & nuclear physics. This is important because @ukhesa only report STFC as #physics – it’s so much more!

STFC have a #equality & #diversity statement here:…
So, let’s start with @STFC_Matters #ethnicity data.

Worth noting that @UKRI_News collate three categories; ethnic minority, white, not disclosed.

We can’t separate out different ethnicity, which is a problem in itself. Image

NYS Tax Dept reviewing fraud allegations involving Trump

The Trumps’ tax maneuvers show a pattern of deception.

Trump by age 3, earned $200k a year in today’s dollars from his father’s empire. He was a millionaire by age 8. In his 40s & 50s, he rec’d +$5M a year.

That ‘small loan’ of $1 million was actually at least $60.7 million — much of it never repaid

Fred Trump wove a safety net that rescued his son from one bad bet after another

The Trumps turned an $11 million loan debt into a legally questionable tax write-off

Father and son set out to create the myth of a self-made billionaire

Trump tried to change his ailing father’s will, setting off a family reckoning

The Trump parents dodged hundreds of millions in gift taxes by grossly undervaluing the assets they would pass on
