Here comes the sun! The region just behind the southeast limb is starting to show itself via loops high in the corona. What will it bring?🧐🤔❓🌎🌞 For more on Sun activity see https://t.co/xD29wLfTTM pic.twitter.com/c5os381Cu6

Watching Comet 96P/Machholz pass perihelion on its journey around the Sun. And a nice CME from a filament eruption to add to the show. 🧐🤔❓🌎🌞 For more on Sun activity see https://t.co/xD29wLfm4e pic.twitter.com/XemACCPcpJ

This is a new #JWST image.

The six-pointed objects are stars in the Milky Way.

Everything else is an entire galaxy.

Our first @LMT_TolTEC images from commissioning data are beautiful. Here M1 (Crab Nebula) at 1.1/1.4/2.0mm. More engineering and commissioning data tonight, hopefully, and more info on first images here: https://t.co/7IhwXVkjLE @gtmlmt_oficial @inaoe_mx pic.twitter.com/ChsgiHeTiK

Making movies of black holes? Sure! Building a telescope like the @africa_mm_tel greatly helps.

#JWST picture of the month: LEDA 2046648, A Spiral Amongst Thousands. The large spiral galaxy at the base of the image is located 1.1 billion light-years away in constellation Hercules, in a sector of the sky that we are mapping in the ongoing analyses of the Cosmicflows-4 data. pic.twitter.com/MT52iQhHgy

If you didn’t grow up poor… you may need to do some listening & learning to truly be a good mentor to students coming from poverty.

If your answer to a problem they bring you is, ‘Just xyz…’ and they don’t immediately respond ‘OMG, brilliant, why didn’t I think of that?!?’

It's paper day. We show that galaxy mergers (FIRE) not only enhance global SFR, but molecular gas surface density and associated virial parameter, highlighting the role of feedback! Comments are welcome. Enjoy! @BlakesleyB @cchayward82 https://t.co/CfAJhDiT95 pic.twitter.com/rqMQhPVsXP

The fact that AI is being hard coded with standard 2023 Bay Area Democrat beliefs as if they are universal, eternal, truths is an AI alignment problem, albeit secondary to the "might wipe out humanity" one.
