Bill Gates is setting up factories to manufacture 7 leading vaccine candidates before we know which is best & safest; we can test the vaccines in parallel, and then throw away all but the factory for the best vaccine. May save many months.

Just extraordinary. pic.twitter.com/JGjkJ6FKNa

Quién iba a creer que un humilde bicho nanométrico que ni siquiera califica como ser vivo nos enseñara lo artificial de la idea de paises independientes separados por fronteras.

I have come to agree with @glennkirschner2 that POTUS, the GOP Senate, and a cabal of GOP governors are capable of manipulating these circumstances to bring chaos to the dates, times and places of the 2020 federal elections.

I just received the sad news that my colleague, Margaret Burbidge, has passed away.

She turned 100 years old last August. Margaret played a foundational role in the physics and astronomy of the 20th Century.

Rest In Peace Margaret, among the stars you helped us understand. pic.twitter.com/ndkpAEpLS7

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo. “So do I,” said Gandalf, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” - J.R.R. Tolkien#COVIDー19 #COVID19Pandemic

What happens when a pandemic starts in your birth country, where your family is, & spreads across the oceans to your new home? In @nytimes, I write about my mother in China, who believes God & Party will defeat #COVID19, & protect her only child in the US:https://t.co/YK1bHMp74l

Central forces that decay as 1/r² are special, as they guarantee that all bound orbits are going to be closed (Bertrand's theorem).
Small changes in the power will lead to significantly different kind of orbits. pic.twitter.com/AllIFyTwZd

A prediction we made this morning:
"Interestingly, we also predict that the virus may invade multiple brain tissues, which may help explain to the loss of taste and smell in infected individuals. Has anyone seen evidence of further brain damage in COVID-194patients?"1/3

Coriolis force: if your frame of reference is rotating, objects that are in fact moving in a straight line looks to you like they are bending sideways, like there was a lateral force acting on them. pic.twitter.com/OLQlkMeKQh

Ok #Australia. As of today, #SocialDistancing & related responses have prevented 26,253 cases of #COVID19 since 20 March. That's the gap between orange and pink in the graph below.

Premiers @DanielAndrewsMP & @GladysB - this is why it's so important not to give up too early. pic.twitter.com/5ifwiRL9jb

The particle physicist Mary Katharine Gaillard was born #OTD in 1939. She and Benjamin Lee predicted the mass of the charm quark in 1974, and she was the first tenured woman on the physics faculty at UC Berkeley.

A month ago, people were excited that only 0.6% of South Korean COVID-19 patients had died. Today it is 1.7%.

Two weeks ago, they were excited that only 0.2% of German patients had died. Today it is 1.2%.

COVID-19 can take weeks to kill, and early fatality rates often rise. pic.twitter.com/wxXzyCjo9V
