Beli kereta bukan sekadar bayar bulan-bulan dan isi petrol sahaja. Kena fikirkan bayar service bila cukup mileage, road tax dan insurance dan juga maintenance seperti kena ganti tayar bila sampai masanya. Semua ni bukannya murah. https://t.co/HEuIvcdDGC

"Hours lost: 6. Reason: Volcano"

Doug Geisler's telescope log from 39y ago today - he was the sole person at Manastash Ridge Observatory when Mt. St. Helens erupted!

I interviewed Doug earlier this year for #TheLastStargazers and got to hear the full tale... pic.twitter.com/6V4PGQiSQU

If you want more space-related animal stories, please enjoy Nalla the Persuader (YES, REALLY), a peregrine falcon who works part-time with the European Space Agency to keep birds from nesting (and pooping) in one of their tracking antennae in Spain: https://t.co/6Ha6CfHii9 pic.twitter.com/8iUwDVUNNl

I’m at a lecture celebrating the 50th anniversary of Apollo 10 and just learned that the first Earth creatures to orbit the moon were two tortoises.

The only thing I’ve heard is that we’re “waiting to find out what Morrison’s agenda is” ... er, guys, isn’t that something that should have been asked *before* the election??

50 years ago #OTD, #Apollo10 astronauts returning to Earth discovered a - bolus - floating in the command module Charlie Brown. CDR, CMP, LMP in turn denied it was theirs. Is this how the invasion was supposed to start? Made none of the network newscasts at the time. #Apollo50 pic.twitter.com/vHEGq5lCnB

Big Bang Theory show keep me sane when I did my PhD. Although all the characters fictional, but they do inspire many young people to do science especially physics. In series have special place in my heart. https://t.co/Z7W64GGyih

Trying to assemble a white paper on #IceGiants for an ESA call, and really struggling to find a decent infographic for Uranus and Neptune. So I cobbled one together from a variety of sources, hopefully it captures the incredible variety of these systems: pic.twitter.com/u16fqIPQHM

Went out to wave to the astronauts in the ISS, and now I’m wondering if I caught a fortuitous meteor or if that was just an internal reflection from the streetlight or something. 🤔
Can’t reproduce the “meteor” now while standing in the same spot, so…

The astrophysics data system (@adsabs) is basically a search engine for astronomy papers. They're getting rid of their old version for a new one and, you wouldn't believe it but... it's the most controversial thing in astronomy ever.
So let's see where astrotweeps loyalties lie:

The recent G3 storm on May 14 was not just because of CIR followed by HSS, but contributed also by a CME (likely from May 11). Note the periods of depressed proton temperature and smooth field rotation. Looks like another one (from May 13) may be hitting us. pic.twitter.com/c6VGoM4XBT
