Elsevier just revoked access to papers from 2018 for all members of the German consortium trying to negotiate a Germany-wide #openaccess agreement. Please join me and hundreds of colleagues in refusing to review for Elsevier titles that aren't open access! https://t.co/M750UDnyGj

Ben mi yanlış algılıyorum bilemiyorum ama sanki herkesin bir ikna edilme talebi var gibi. Fizik okumak isteyen de, aşık olmak isteyen de, spor yapmak isteyen de önce ikna edilmek istiyor gibi. Bu biraz fazla ‘özne’ olmak isteme halini anımsatıyor bana. Eskiye oranla arttı mı bu?

Take a few moments to admire this beautiful baby picture of our Universe - a snapshot from when it was only 400'000 years old https://t.co/RYojyz5Z3v

Zeer helder overzichtsartikel over waterstofeconomie door @reijn1 en @NielsWaarlo. Verplicht leesvoer voor alle politici .. Alleen al om die basis natuurkunde feitjes die (te) weinig mensen lijken te kennen en die steeds weer opduiken in discussies. https://t.co/2sUS8emwGs pic.twitter.com/yGwwgwGqm4

OK so Planck 2018 reports a Hubble constant of H_0 = 67.27 +/- 0.60 km/s/Mpc. Discrepancy with supernovae is now 3.5 sigma.

Jocelyn Bell Burnell was born #OTD in 1943. As a grad student at Cambridge in 1967, she discovered a new type of celestial object: Pulsars!

It’s going to be weird when they finish killing all the bot accounts and it turns out I was the only human on here this whole time.

Jacqueline Paulette Drouilly Yurich

Jacqueline y Marcelo, ellos fueron sacados de noche de la Villa Grimaldi, a mediados de diciembre de 1974. Desde entonces, nunca más se volvería a ver ni saber de ellos.

Jacqueline tenía 3 meses de embarazo. pic.twitter.com/qvxF0dlDZD

Oh nothing, just working on figuring out what 25% of the Universe is made of. Nothing at all. https://t.co/z6PtEtUkMQ

Antimatter is amazing: it means negative numbers are real. Yes, you can have -3 particles: it's called having 3 antiparticles! Just as 3 - 3 = 0, three antiparticles can annihilate three particles of the same kind. But the discovery of antimatter is a funny story (cont.) pic.twitter.com/XWGQFLUDTe

How sweet, Super Kamio-candy! Neutrinos guaranteed in each bite - small print: although neutrinos are in every bite there is a slim likelihood of even one actually interacting with you in you lifetime. #Neutrino #SuperK #physics #candy https://t.co/IuyNeZSyJU

Amazing how much fun can be had with random points on a sphere! A team of mathematicians on Twitter just discovered a cool connection between Catalan numbers and the distance between random points on the sphere in 4d - using the quaternions!https://t.co/g40n7DWAK1

We've discovered a surprising fact about the probability distribution of distances between random points on spheres! A mysterious mathematician known only as "Lucia" finished the job. It's fun having collaborators you don't even know.https://t.co/3TrODkZTLO

This is what neutrino astronomers have been dreaming of for decades. Congratulations to the IceCube Collaboration and to my PhD advisor Francis Halzen. #BlazarNeutrino

Hey world, sorry if I've been damaging the Wikipedia community. Deyan is concerned, so we should probably keep all the biographies as white men. #womeninstem https://t.co/oblA4IGSNF
