Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

35517 Remember the nature of this pandemic is not just that it is more lethal than the flu I'm curious why that does not seems not to be significantly so in some countries.  As of 13 December Norway has had 398 covid related deaths (persons tested positive for covid regardless of actual death cause...

Anyone getting a photo of Jupiter and Saturn tonight?  Fog and clouds here, and they're soon setting. :(

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Does the new strain appear to be less  lethal?  A mutation could theoretically do more good than harm if it spreads extremely fast, only gives mild symptoms and results in immunity against the dangerous strains.  But even if such a mutation occurs, what if it easily mutates again into something spre...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Quarantines can't be expected to stop the virus from spreading in all cases, but to keep the R number below 1.  Norway had a very few daily new cases this summer (< 10, now in the hundreds), and there was a mandatory quarantine if coming abroad from a red region (mostly outside Europe), but the seco...

The waves peak differently across the world.  So maybe a third peak in the US, but a second wave in much of Europe.

Space; How did you get interested in it?

35489 Watch the new Cosmos series, it is also spectacular! It's not too bad, but I think the original series wasn't in desperate need of a redo.  The original series was more about the history and philosophy of science than astronomy, which could rather be seen as an example in this respect.  Much ...

Yes, these are for the meteor network, and anything else that might happen in the sky.  Four 5 megapixel cameras cover the entire sky.

35474 was that 180 degrees from left to right? 360x180 degrees, equirectangular projection, so you see the entire sky.  The other two have about 200 degrees horizontally. Full sky coverage using four cameras: http://norskmeteornettverk.no/wordpress/uploads/2015/03/20150327_1403051.jpg

35472 Sunrises and sunsets are the best during the winter because of that shallow sun angle and path and the longer time the sun lingers near the horizon. I made a 1 hour timelapse a few years ago capturing a long winter sunset over here: g46DY0WPHCM A couple of others (several hours): B0o-f5bGEwM ...

Asteroids, meteors, and meteorites

The new Moon is very favourable for the Geminids this year.  They've already begun showing up in our cameras, but I haven't seen as much as a little patch of clear sky in almost two weeks now, and there is not a hint of that in the 10 day forecast.  Just clouds, fog, sleet and snow for another 10 da...

General global warming / climate change discussion

Not drinking for 24h doesn't sound healthy.  Skipping food for a day once in a while probably isn't a problem, except that it may be difficult socially. 35433 About Fukushima, do you think that they skimped on some protocols and it should have been built to a much higher building code? In hindsight ...

35426 And you already know how unhealthy the average American's diet is lol. The problem in the US is more the size of the meals than what.  Eating "unhealthy" food is ok unless it's only  that thing.  It just has to be different things, and not too much.  I'm reminded of a restaurant tha...

35401 The cheap energy thing is a fallacy, dirty energy is only cheap because it is subsidized.  if you analyze the situation in reality, renewable energy has become cheaper than dirty fossil fuels. Subsidised, how? The fallacy is rather to equal renewable energy with clean energy, and non-renewabl...
