Science and Astronomy News

36406 Yes I am interested in that machine that converts CO2 to O2, do you think something like that scaled up could be used on Earth? As a way to remove some of the excess CO2? Something scaled up to, like, forests? Devices capturing carbon from the atmosphere are surely possible, but hardly practi...

Science and Astronomy News

We've been flooded by news of helicopter flights on Mars, which is fun, but I'm actually more excited about all the rest we've heard nothing about.  The rover has many interesting instruments.  Remote controlling a helicopter on Mars is more a technological feat than it gives new knowledge about Mar...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

36394 Mid do those cultural groups have different diets or are they more exposed to pollution? We have that in the US among groups that have higher rates of diabetes, obesity, hypertension and asthma for various dietary and air quality reasons. To some degree, but I don't think that can explain the...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

I'm not intending to oversimplify, I'd rather address ideas that things will automatically improve if you stay as much as possible at home and wear a mask if you go out.  Precisely because it's not simple.  Combating spread by being more outdoors supposes, of course, that you're not heavily socialis...

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Thread

And after 1.5 years, how these waves happen is little understood.  Wall Street Journal exemplifies in this 2020-12-30 article:  Covid-19 Was Consuming India, Until Nearly Everyone Started Wearing Masks. One of the world’s most boisterous and diverse democracies has embraced a proven pandemic strateg...

General global warming / climate change discussion

That sounds what politicians have been doing in Europe for many years.  They set all kinds of targets that look good on paper, but without a practical plan for how it will be achieved.  Politicians tend to think that outcomes can simply be written in a resolution and the job is basically done.  Rath...

36321 sheesh, is that a multimonitor set up and what kind of graphics card? I remember something about your mentioning a 3080 class card? Three 1080p monitors.  lspci tells me that I have an "ASRock Incorporation Device 5202", which apparently is an AMD RX 6800 XT.  It would be fun to hoo...

A-L-E-X, this is not my video (just something I found on YouTube), but it shows well why this is a very interesting site for installing meteor cameras (and doing astronomy in general):

36317 Wow is there some kind of danger with that ice boulder?  It looks like it's very precariously balanced...... Not at all.  The ice sticks to a stevenson screen (weather hut) which is securely bolted to the ground on 2 m stilts.  There also is a tall antenna tower nearby, however, and chunks of...

On my trip this weekend I also found this 4 meter block of ice interesting: x.jpg Somewhere inside this block of ice is a stevenson screen, which used to be the official weather station on this mountain.  This site suffers heavily from atmospheric icing.  It's a very windy place with frequent fog an...

I forgot to mention that this is also what a sunset on Hoth looks like.  The mountain seen is in the area used for filming the Hoth scenes in The Empire Strikes Back.

Maybe somebody else helped, because I don't even know what OBS Studio is.  I edit my videos in Kdenlive.  Here's the same sunset with a wider angle.  The distance to the mountain that the sun is setting behind is 95 km.
