Another very neat cosmological model. I wonder if something like this can be simulated in @UniverseSandbox ? # # #
That would be a nice thing to try if you have Universe Sandbox. 😀


I could watch this all day...more fascinated by the red clustering than the green (around libration point). Although the size of the stable area of the liberation point regions is interesting too. # # #


OK NYC apartments are officially getting too small... :)


Wow that is really neat!

You've probably seen it before (I know I have) but it's cool every time #space #science

A massive atmospheric release of radioactive 106Ru occurred in Eurasia in 2017, which must have been caused by a sizeable, yet undeclared nuclear accident. This work presents the most compelling monitoring dataset of this release, comprising 1,100 atmospheric and 200 deposition data points from the Eurasian region.


Every time I see stories like this I want to fire up some mod/sim software and try to simulate it. There must be some open source or public domain software for this but needs a hefty computer...hmm...brain rationalizing... #space #science…
@Howard C. Shaw, III Thanks! I've dabbled with Universe Sandbox under steam and you can do some neat things but yes it's not exactly what I'm looking for. The above links look very interesting indeed. I found some open source framework but I can't find it now. I'll post it here if I do figure it out though. Thanks for the links!


I had heard about the laser ranging experiment on Apollo 11 but hadn't read about how it got there or how it went from the ground. We learned a lot from a simple experiment. #space #science
You may also like this article from Physics World which has more info on that experiment and the current challenges with it, like determining distance to the moon in millimetres.


Using spare CPU cycles to give back through "volunteer computing" distributed computing system BOINC #hpc #science #space


On a lark I wanted to see if SETI@Home still existed...forget it's a whole ecosystem Berkley puts out called BOINC. Now I have clients for 6 projects running. Giving back a little bit. #science #hpc

It does sound pretty neat!
