Astrophotography

Wat, how bright is this compared to Hale-Bopp in 1997?  I remember seeing that comet clearly from NYC! It will be closest to the earth on July 22nd and so that should be the best night to see it?  is that when it will be highest in the NW sky 90 min after sunset too? Why do new comets get such borin...

34112 And no special camera mode used, Wat? Nope. Almost all of my photography is done in manual mode shooting.  34112 and one of the things that was mentioned was the toxicity of the metals used that produce those brilliant colors (lead was mentioned, and I believe mercury also?)   There should no...

I especially love the 3D effect from the background ;-) and the background itself!  And no special camera mode used, Wat? Setting off personal fireworks is illegal in NY, and one of the things that was mentioned was the toxicity of the metals used that produce those brilliant colors (lead was mentio...

I designed a crewed interstellar spacecraft

Were one or more of these methods supposed to be used in the Icarus Project and Project Orion?  I believe we could get to the Alpha Centauri system in less than 50 years in a generation ship using those methods.

You can actually see at least one or two of Jupiter's moons!

The Jetsons was not supposed to be a reality until 2062- looks like it is going to happen much earlier than that.

that class action bayer/monsanto lost, people think that giving up 10 billion dollars is a lot, but it isn't, it gets divided among 100,000 people who got cancer from round up, so it's only 100,000 per person and thats before the govt takes its cut....it should have been 100 billion which is the pri...

Wat!  Since you're also an avid watcher of PBS as am I, have you had a look at the new Nature mini-series "Spy" (it is about small automatons that resemble the animals' natural habitat being used to explore animal behavior without disturbing them.)  The latest episode, intelligence, explor...

Nice! Definitely looking forward to setting up cities and bases up on other planets! I'd definitely love to have these on habitable planets, and also "cities in the sky" where the surface isn't habitable. Also, maybe some underground caves and cities there where species have retreated bel...

33973 but the opening as of now for non-exotic matter traversable wormholes, only seems to be 30% wider than the planck length. This might still be useful, if we can work on it. 30% larger than the plank length is really small and probably isn't useful but if we can find a way to use preexisting wo...

How the Virus Won An excellent New York Times data visualization of how the epidemic spread through the US, and the missteps we made along the way.  (A free account may be required to view, all that's needed is a valid email.) 33926 Looks like rather than a second wave, there's a second rise going ...

Unusual weather

Forest fires in Siberia is an annual thing, and I don't think there is much support for attributing them to climate change. I have a memory from my first flight over Siberia, between Helsinki and Tokyo in 1999, of forest fires. For hours and hours plumes of smoke could be seen rising from the land ...

33976  Interestingly though, there aren't much historical records of observations of these clouds before 1885, after the Krakatau eruption. I don't think this is very conclusive.  There are hardly any clear descriptions of the aurora borealis either going back more than a few centuries.  Greek and ...
