Let's talk the so-called need to "get women interested in science". The thing is: we *are* interested (HELLO 🙋‍♀️). We're everywhere. That isn't the problem. The problem is *keeping us here*. Creating a safe environment for women, esp. women of color, is the problem.

This is the last thing a remote camera positioned just a bit to close to the launch pad sees. Don't worry @ingallsimages, that'll buff right out. If not I'm sure @CanonUSA might bend its warranty rules a bit ... for science. pic.twitter.com/uGp5safdPw

"Hours lost: 6. Reason: Volcano"

Doug Geisler's telescope log from 28y ago today, observing at Manastash Ridge when Mt. St. Helens erupted (this is by far the most popular story ppl point me to when I mention I'm writing a book about observing) #TheLastStargazers #ReasonVolcano pic.twitter.com/0UVAlLjkI5

A lo Rhodes: La 1a vez que salí de España a una escuela de astronomía internacional, recien licenciada, pensaba que mi educación había sido mala, mi inglés malo, mi habilidad para la astronomía mala, todo mal en comparación con los estudiantes de otros países. Menuda equivocación

This is pretty extraordinary. Scientists have measured the pressure INSIDE A PROTON. The pressure is 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 pascals, or about 10 times the pressure at the centre of a neutron star.https://t.co/UDDJzb9UWw

This is an amazing result. Imagine: we could send a space probe to study a tiny world that came from another star system. #Interstellar #Asteroids https://t.co/3n95A1QPep

Amazing. I saw the last men walk on the moon as a kid and was inspired, talked 15 years about radio astronomy from the moon, and now after 2 crazy years of work, our radio antenna really goes ..?! Surreal! Can’t believe it. #NCLE #Queqiao #Change4 #Godspeed pic.twitter.com/a9Adteaf0q

Wow, this tweet is going viral! I should make some comment about it? I guess I will say that when I graduated from Harvard my dad toasted me and said, "You've been given a lot of power. Now use it wisely." So, I'm trying. Jared isn't. https://t.co/7tFbwj1epj

moraleja: nos acomplejan más de la cuenta y muchas veces se tiende a pensar que lo de fuera es mejor cuando no es así en muchas ocasiones.

The launch of #Queqiao with @Radboud_Uni @RadRadioLab experiment #NCLE is now officially a success. First step to human exploration of the far side of the moon. Keep it radio quiet for astronomy please! https://t.co/9xdOoeO23l pic.twitter.com/sAP1Jii8kA
