Bercakap pasal siswa-siswi tak cukup makan ini, dulu pernah beri cadangan buat dapur (kitchen) dekat kolej supaya pelajar boleh masak macam dengan hostel-hostel di universiti luar negara tapi sekali kena gelak dan diberitahu tak praktikal. 🤷‍♀️

The academic publishing industry has larger global revenues than the recorded music industry, and is not far short of the film industry.

Intriguing: improved determination of the Hubble constant (H0) from Hubble Space Telescope observations of Cepheids in the Large Magellanic Cloud, brings discrepancy with Planck CMB+LCDM inferred value to 4.4 sigma! https://t.co/T80dGucRjU pic.twitter.com/zf4Nw4sRni

The 3.5m telescope at @CalarAltoObs is being used to hunt for extrasolar planets. During my stay there, I had the pleasure to go inside the dome & see it up close. What an incredible beast! The perfect model to picture with a rising Milky Way! #cielosESA @TheUniverse_TM pic.twitter.com/FDDLa0ThCU

The good thing about the Milky Way these first few days of the new season is that is low enough to find compositions like this. This is me pointing to the Lagoon Nebula from the @CalarAltoObs in Almeria in a single shot with the Canon 6D and the Samyang 135mm lens #cielosESA pic.twitter.com/qj8kG32ekc

OMG a bunch of us just put an eyepiece on the @LCOAstro Swope 1-meter telescope & POINTED IT AT ETA CARINA.

You could see the structure! The bipolar lobes!! THE STAR WAS BRIGHT RED BECAUSE OF THE DUST!!! AAAAAHHHH 🤩🌟🎉

Happy St Patrick’s Day! Today we remember that:
1. Indentured servitude, while terrible, was not comparable to intergenerational chattel slavery
2. Theresa May sucks
3. A lot of people treat today as a white pride day with a good cover story.
4. White pride is violent.

Direct Hit! Both #NOAA & #NASA prediction models agree we have an Earth-directed #solarstorm that will impact around 12pm March 23! This one is dense & strong so it could pack a decent punch! Expect #hamradio & #GPS disruptions on Earth's nightside, plus #aurora to mid-latitudes! pic.twitter.com/H3carfQR5m

New article again today. Living here in UM is expensive and one thing I'm grateful is some of the cafe still provide cheap food but still it is expensive to the poor students.

The latest #solarstorm from new AR 12736 accompanied a coronal wave and dimming, also a C4.8 flare. From STEREO COR-2 data, the CME looks like Earth-bound. Monitor solar wind late on March 22 onward. @SpaceWxMike @nenecallas @TamithaSkov @chunder10 pic.twitter.com/AurFI6Wq9K

Kita ni dok glorify nama-nama kerja/bidang yang canngih ni hujung-hujung bila dapat tahu nama sebenarnya biasa-biasa je yang kita belajar hari-hari tapi letak nama canggih terus saham naik. Eg. machine learning asasnya matematik dan statistik je pun.. dari linear ke non-linear

My latest @NatureGeosci Sketch-Up is out, and it’s about @OSIRISREx and Bennu—a rubble pile asteroid with a complex history! The authors presented this work this morning at #LPSC2019, and more sketches are coming! Shareable PDF: https://t.co/OV8gHLgaEo. @DSLauretta @kwalsh4 pic.twitter.com/XbpNCRIsh0

This dude has a statistics-based job despite fundamentally misunderstanding how to interpret statistics.
He has been given a Sunday Times double page voice despite being let go from CERN and his “theories” debunked.

But yeah... we live in a gender-blind meritocracy apparently 🙄 https://t.co/GQLcexyHxz

Our current hypothesis for the formation of 2014 #MU69! I made a simple version of this back at encounter, but had to update it (i.e., flatten MU69) for #LPSC2019. I look forward to updating it in the future, as our hypotheses evolve! @NASANewHorizons @NewHorizons2015 pic.twitter.com/oLBl1DebYp

El pasado 18 de Diciembre, un meteorito explotó en el estrecho de Bering con la energía de 10 veces la bomba de Hiroshima, mientras entraba en la atmosfera de la Tierra a 115.200 km/h.

Ni siquiera ha sido el impacto mas grande de los últimos 10 años. We need a plan! https://t.co/Zipkb8PjUk
