Note for progressive teachers in the GHTA: I am an openly trans & bi university educator with experience talking to schoolkids (3rd grade & up) about black holes, cosmology, & particle physics. If having me visit might help support your LGBTI+ students, I'm keen & my fee is $0 🌈

Patriarchy teaches masc people that it’s okay to be poor emotional communicators because the people around them will pick up the slack and or accept the silence, and if someone hasn’t reminded you today of how shitty that is, let me be the person in your world who said: it’s shit

There’s a fascinating piece of WWII science history called the Battle of the Beams.

The problem: a pack of genocidal bastards are bombing England. They’re doing it at night, and given that this is before GPS, they’re really bad at figuring out where they are going.

This number has 317 digits, all ones. It's prime. 317 is also prime!

That's not a coincidence. A number whose digits are all 1 can only be prime if the number of digits is prime!

This works in any base, not just base ten. Can you see the quick proof?

Yay! Starting May 20th in 2019, the kilogram will be defined using Planck's constant, the speed of light, and the frequency of a very specific kind of light emitted by a cesium atom!

Until now it was defined as the mass of this chunk of metal in Paris.
