Asteroids, meteors, and meteorites

37940 air burst so it means there would be no crater since it didn't make it to the ground? My understanding that, like in Tunguska, there is no evidence of a ground impact.  However, there could be still have been fragments reaching the ground which would leave no crater or craters small enough to...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

Norway just removed all restrictions despite the new cases numbers currently being close to the highest during the entire pandemic (~200 per 100,000 nationwide last 14 days, ~500 in the capital).  The crowds are back.  The situation is still being monitored with public testing still being offered, b...

It's fascinating how the entire intuitive concept of time and contemporaneity falls apart.  Once crossing the horizon, we can still see the spaceship and the universe, but we've detached from that universe which in one sense is expired and gone.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

37861 I just found out today of a 20 something year old doctor who died from COVID even though she was fully vaccinated; she suffered a blood clot after getting COVID I thought that was a rare, ill effect of the AZ and J&J vaccines? So my 13 year old daughter just got out of isolation with covi...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

A more optimistic outlook would involve a mutation which is highly transmissible but only giving mild or no symptoms whilst also giving immunity against other variants, in which case the population would self-vaccinate.  The problem with that, however, is that after several billion infections, the l...

37839 What else did you think from the interview? You expressed some frustration that experts had lead you or others to expect various measures to essentially end the pandemic much more quickly. What I say is that they could have been more honest about things.  One thing that he did get wrong in th...

37836 I highly recommend rewatching that interview He recommends the elbow bump.  Soon two years into this and the bump doesn't seem to have been questioned.  The virus is airborne, so why recommend a greeting which brings people at half an arm's length rather than a full arm's length as with a han...

37798 NYC Central Park the records go back to 1869, so it's roughly 150. Do you really think that they checked the rain gauge every hour around the clock back in the 1800's?  Precipitation intensity was very rarely recorded before electronic sensors, which have been deployed for the last few decade...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

I think there is a growing credibility issue.  First, the message was "flatten the curve, and gradually we'll have herd immunity".  Then "bear with the restrictions a little bit more, the vaccines are soon here and we'll be out of this".  Then "once 2/3 of adults are vaccina...

37784 New research seems to show the vaccines aren't effective for long with the new variant.  My contacts in healthcare have been telling me they are even getting fully vaccinated patients into their hospitals and having to intubate them. (Moved from another thread) Well, I suppose I get to test w...

Planets with potentially breathable atmospheres

37773 I've seen that some governments are considering using these to detect how many people are in individual habitations to see if they are breaking covid restrictions. CO 2  levels are certainly a good indicator for the risk of transmission, but having governments monitoring private homes this wa...
