SpaceX launched a Tesla into space. What's the probability it collides with Earth or Venus over the next one million years?

These simulations say "6% and 2.5%, respectively." https://t.co/ug0ylw0xVG

Beautiful and challenging post by Art Duval, filled with good ideas to help you teach with kindness. Here’s one: when students show up late to class, instead of making them feel bad, say, ‘I’m so glad you’re here.’ https://t.co/doZ46nnTgl

“The tacit assumption that all networks are scale-free and it’s up to us to figure out how to see them that way — that sounds nonfalsifiable.” https://t.co/MGSzefz4sV via @QuantaMagazine

décidément, je trouve cette visualisation incroyablement intéressante (ht @KaplanBen_Fr) en particulier, on voit que le parcours 'scientifique' est en fait le parcours 'généraliste' (et que c'est la voie à choisir pour s'ouvrir ainsi le plus de portes/passerelles ensuite) pic.twitter.com/lFntjgyWfT

This falls into the professional math bucket and not the "math for kids" bucket that I'm usually tweeting about. This is a fascinating paper about the the amount of data you need to be able to make meaningful statements about a data set. https://t.co/1lH92KiuiY

Last night, I was skimming through a math paper and got to the word "counts." Confused, I kept staring at the word. “Whoa. What is an unt? Is it like a unit? And what does it mean to take its dual?” So I read the sentence a second time.

This is not good.

The "{6,3,3} honeycomb", drawn by Roice Nelson, lives in hyperbolic space. 3 hexagonal tilings of the Euclidean plane meet at any edge of this thing! So, instead of filling space with finite-sized polyhedra, we fill it with shapes that go on forever. https://t.co/DbrqIRrxt6 pic.twitter.com/svJ3dtxYlG

Yr 8 science teacher asked us to name types of pollution. I put my hand up and said "light pollution". She scoffed and insisted that wasn't a thing. STILL NOT OVER IT. https://t.co/EpP9JgUaEb

Victor Buso is my new hero. In the Nature paper he co-authored, he listed his affiliation as "Observatorio Astronomico Busoniano" -- i.e., the telescope dome he built on his rooftophttps://t.co/44tsPFhXaS pic.twitter.com/JyHHVfHwIi

What do you get when you mix #opensource codes for single-cell gene signaling (MaBoSS by @numsimb et al: https://t.co/z3BmOPGXZ6) and multicellular simulations (#PhysiCell: https://t.co/EGmtApzLur)?
