Just a chat board

Today seems to be an enjoyable time to start a chat board. You can talk about what you’ve been doing, share some pics. - where’ve you been, etc.

Although this board is gonna be pretty long you could scroll down using the sidebar on the right.

I’m posting this as I submit my first paper to Nature Astronomy confirming that I have successfully ruled out the presence of a supermassive blackhole at the centre of most planets and moons in our solar system. The jury is still out on whether or not there could be one inside Neptune; the theoretical models are a little too wild at the moment to say for sure (we can only get as high as 4 sigma).

Here is a “light reading” science site with some decent astronomy articles https://12ft.io/proxy?ref=&q=https://www.iflscience.com/

Very cool! Both the paywall remover and the website!

Just got back from my Utah vacation and it’s finally alive!

My Favorite part of my vacation is the Clark Planetarium trip. Heres some pics.





Amazing slideshow, they should’ve put up some JWST images up with it.

And an elevator with the Fornax Cluster as their background.

Anyone know anyone in materials science/condensed matter physics? I have some results and SEM images I can’t understand.
