"Though my soul may set in darkness, it will rise in perfect light;
I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night."
I love this poem by Sarah Williams & come back to it often when I need a pick me up, but in absolutely classic fashion it's misattributed fairly consistently to Galileo 🙄
Grimly appropriate for a week of researching women & the Nobel prize.
Happily, this stunning image of the Crab Nebula has had a far better genesis!
Created by an international team led by Gloria Dubner, it combines data of different wavelengths from 5 telescopes - the Hubble, Spitzer, VLA, XMM-Newton & Chandra X-Ray Observatory! .
The nebula itself is the eerily beautiful remnant of a supernova, with an incredibly regular heartbeat at its centre.
This is a pulsar - a super dense leftover of the original star - which rotates rapidly, jetting out bright twin beams of radiation. .
Exoplanets have actually been discovered around these stars! Imagine living next to the brightest lighthouse in the universe 😨
STEM Day was a success 😊Year 3 to 6 classes were given 100 straws and 3 strips of blu tack. Our task was to create the tallest tower in 30 minutes. 6M had lots of fun! 🗼 #grade6#futurefocused#stem#steam
Took over the STEM class today! Nothing keeps me from spreading my Space Science enthusiasm! Today, I took the opportunity to educate a 6th grade and 2nd grade class on the development of medicines from the research conducted on the #ISS (and specifically mentioning the research that was recently done by Dr. Kate Rubins). Crystalline proteins development more pristinely in microgravity so better treatments can be made to address different diseases being analyzed. To show the effects of gravity on crystal growth we made a #SodiumTetraBorateDecaHydrate solution to make #BoraxCrystals on pipe cleaners. Hopefully, these students will take away the appreciation of microgravity labs knowing the aim is the perfect medicines for the most complex of diseases. #SolarSystemAmbassador#STEM#CaseForSpace#SpaceLady
Growing up, my mother worked long hours as a housekeeper and was rarely home before 8 pm. As the oldest of three, I was expected to take care of my younger sisters. Between her job and my own responsibilities at home, the only one-on-one time I ever got to spend with my mother was when she helped me with my homework. Since she had received the rough equivalent of an elementary school education, grammar homework quickly became something I had to manage on my own. However, my mother has always had a knack for numbers and could help me with math until I was in 8th grade. Because the subject represented an opportunity to spend time with my mother, math quickly became my favorite subject and I excelled in it. Thus began my obsession with STEM fields. (Picture 1: my mom and I when I was a baby. Picture 2: my sisters Luisa [left] and Laura [right], my mother and I at the beach. I'm the kid with missing teeth in the middle.) #BrownGirlsDoingScience#STEM#IGetItFromMyMama#Family#Thankful#MassachusettsInstituteOfTechnology#HarvardMed#NewAmerican
Your alma mater is a great resource to tap into for employment.
Usually alums try to help each other. They know how well your alma mater is at educating its students.
Most importantly they want others to succeed!
Vandaag weer een nieuwe post van DreamTeam!
De vorige keer bespraken we de 2e van de 3 middenvelders.
Dat is uiteindelijk isco geworden.
Vandaag gaan we door, en bespreken we de laatste middenvelder.
Dus stem nu op jou favoriete middenvelder en zorg dat hij in het DreamTeam komt te staan!
Laat nu jou favoriete middenvelder achter in de reacties! ❤️❤️👇👇👇
Tag je vrienden👊
Volg @altijdteams mijn 2e acc💚
Cassini had some really neat instrumentation aboard it, and on my post yesterday someone wondered if they received data as it passed into Saturn's atmosphere. I thought as a side note I would go over the intrumentation aboard the craft and explain how and what it's used for.
OPTICAL REMOTE SENSING SUITE:
Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS): captures infrared light and measures the split wavelength to determine temperature and composition of objects;
Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS): wide- and narrow-angle digital camera sensitive to visible, & some infrared/ultraviolet wavelengths, filters to select sampled wavelengths;
Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS): observes ultraviolet light for gases that are unobservable to the human eye, splits light into components to determine gas composition;
Visible and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS): collects visible and infrared light & separates into composite wavelengths to determine material composition from reflected or emitted sources;
FIELDS, PARTICLES AND WAVES:
Cassini Plasma Spectrometer (CAPS): 3 sensor system (electron/ion mass spectrometer/ion beam) to measure particle's kinetic energy and direction, mass spectrometer also measures mass;
Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA): detects dust particles and records charge/speed/size/direction, particle collision and breakup gives dust composition;
Ion and Neutral Mass Spectrometer (INMS): determines chemical/elemental/isotopic composition of gas/volatile components of neutral particles in Titan's atm/ionosphere, Saturn's magnetosphere, and ring;
Magnetometer (MAG): records direction & strength of mag fields;
Magnetosphere Imaging Instrument (MIMI): detect energetic charged particles in plasma/neutral atoms around Saturn;
Radio and Plasma Wave Science (RPWS): detects radio/plasma waves and plasma medium in which Cassini passes;
