PSA: The LEGO "Women of NASA" set is only $17.99 on Amazon! Not sure for how long, but this is quite a bit cheaper than the normal $25 price. I got this for my daughter, she loved it -- it's a very fun set. Highly recommended!#WomenOfNASAhttps://t.co/88pFElI8C6

Há mais de 2 MIL anos, o polímata grego Eratóstenes de Cirene fez um experimento histórico: mediu a circunferência da Terra (sim, ela é redonda!). Hoje, milhares de escolas de todo o mundo se encontram num projeto global de educação. Participe você também! https://t.co/JBhf61Ij1B

I hope this helps! #sciscomm

It is not easy to change perspective about astronomy in Malaysia. Many thought astronomers requires to look at the telescope all night long every night. It is not entirely true. Thanks to Cornell astro for good explanation https://t.co/BssrT54yVC pic.twitter.com/W22kapCsbi
