I'm dying to get back to Oz and take one of my own. Beautiful.
Such a beautiful view of the galaxy from the southern hemisphere.
Too bad we're going to have to wait 100 million years to get that view from here... and that's assuming that the axis of the Earth is constant relative to the galactic plane, and it does not rotate as the solar system travels.
But I guess if it were not constant, then we would have seen a gradual shift of the seasons during recorded history.
OTOH, how much has Polaris shifted during recorded history? If the galactic center were "rising" or setting, I would expect a shift in the position of other stars as well.
Hmm... Orbital mechanics is hard....
Tonight's the night.
3D-Printed Tiles Will Restore Coral Reefs in Hong Kong Waters
That stuff is daily viewing in Chili. Punch in images on a search.
I don't have a Chilean residency visa though, I have an Australian one.
One is closer, the other much farther. Food for thought.
More like, one is really, really far and the other is slightly farther. From here to Santiago is 9400K, to Brisbane is 11,400.
Touchdown! NASA releases the first batch of images from Osiris-Rex
NASA's asteroid-chaser Osiris-Rex completed a brief and historic landing Tuesday on the potentially hazardous asteroid Bennu, over 200 million miles away from Earth. On Wednesday, the space agency shared the first batch of images from the daring operation, revealing a delicate-yet-explosive moment between rock and robot.
Osiris-Rex traveled all that way to perform a short touch-and-go maneuver. Its major goal is to collect a sample from the asteroid's surface and transport it back to Earth for study.
Scientists Accidentally Discover New Organ Inside The Human Head
Where Does Our Consciousness Reside? In The Brain’s Energy Field, Claims New Theory
“As far as we can tell, the electromagnetism we measure from our brains is a consequence of neural functions, not a creator of them." (Italics mine)
Interesting stuff. Unproven as yet, but fascinating.
I'll check it out.
It reminds me of the book The User Illusion by Tor Nørretranders. It describes how decisions we think of as free will choices are actually initiated by the brain before we are aware of it. Interesting book.
Here’s some great science:
WEAR A FACE COVERING!
Like when the kid does something, and replies "I don't know" when mom asks why they did it.
They are not lying.
We must all release our inner Fu Man Chu.
Seems more likely than the microtubule stuff they were talking about a few years ago, but I'm definitely in the "wait and see" camp.
Carl left us quite a legacy.
How appropriate and true
