I’m in LA for a few days for an education conference, staying in a fancy high rise AirBnB. So naturally the first thing I did was head out to find myself some local brews. Destination: meow-ter space ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
👋Need some science inspo today? Behold the humble pomelo, largest member of the citrus family. The genius structure of its peel holds the secret to creating protective gear to prevent traumatic brain injury. My inventor / product developer wheels are turning! @CWInventionTV
My dears, pay attention to the energy around you. Do the people closest to you lift you up or knock you down? Do they fill your bowl or empty it?
Imagine if you could hangout with people who continuously encouraged you to follow your dreams instead of downplaying your desires? Imagine if they challenged you to do more? Day after day, they said “I believe in you. You are capable of doing this and more.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How would that change the trajectory of your life?

You know that sinking feeling when you're walking home and it's cold and dark so you pull out your phone for a distraction/safety and then.... the battery is dead! 😩🤬
Now imagine that instead of being a few blocks from your place, you're about 225 million km away (that's the distance from Toronto to Melbourne....... multiplied by 14000).
Well last June, this was the situation the Opportunity Rover (pictured above) found itself in while in its 14th year on Mars💔. The robot landed on Mars in 2004, twenty days after it's twin rover, Spirit. It was only supposed to be a 9️⃣0️⃣ day mission, but this little rover that could stuck it out, traveling over 4️⃣5️⃣ km (28 miles) on the surface of Mars, sending back 217,594 images of Mars (swipe for examples), breaking the off-Earth record for steepest incline climb, and setting a one-day Mars driving record of 2️⃣2️⃣0️⃣ m (721 ft)💪🏽
But one of the most mind-blowing discoveries thanks to Oppy & its twin: that Mars had the wet💦 and warm🔥 conditions WAY back in the day that were potentially hospitable to life🧬🦠👽🤯
Towards this conclusion, Oppy discovered small rocky "blueberries" (2nd pic) made of hematite, a mineral that forms from rising, acidic groundwater. And when it reached the rim of the impact crater Endeavour, Oppy found white veins of the mineral gypsum — a telltale sign of water that traveled through underground fractures. This told us the Endeavour Crater, located in the Meridiani Planum, probably had the friendliest conditions on the Red Planet for ancient microbial life! 😱🤯
But an intense dust storm in June seems to have covered Oppy's solar panels. There was some hope the windy season (Nov-Jan) might clear the dust away, but now it's winter on the Red Planet, bringing darkness & temps reaching -100C🥶. Without energy to move to stay warm & a low battery, plus thousands of unanswered engineering attempts to make contact with the rover, NASA officially closed the mission earlier this week🥺 #RIPOppy
Maybe someday we’ll make it to Mars & find Oppy… What do you think.. Would you ever go to Mars? Do you think it’s weird we’re obsessed with robots? 🤖👇🏼
From #spain to #russia - @europeanspaceagency article on February 15, 2019- “Astronaut Photography benefitting the Planet”
Atrophotographers devote their time, health and life to take beautiful pictures of #earthfromspace as well as help investigate changing health of Earth and its inhabitants, ecosystems. A few planners, environmentalists and climate scientists (like @mahak.agrawal) examine environmental impacts of artificial lights at night, patterns of energy consumptions and associate growth over space and time.

All scorpions fluoresce under ultraviolet light, such as an electric black light or natural moonlight. The blue-green glow comes from a substance found in the hyaline layer, a very thin but super tough coating in a part of the scorpion’s exoskeleton called the cuticle. Still, scientists don’t know what purpose the fluorescence serves.
