black hole sun; won't you come?

A blog dedicated to science and all things wonderful, with a specific love to the emptiness of space and the field of physics. This is run by a 18 year old girl in university. I am an engineering major who wishes she had the brains to become a physicist. I'd be happy to talk to anyone, introduce yourself!

This is so cool! But what country are they from? “Africa” is really vague.

Their names are Duro-Aina Adebola, Akindele Abiola, Faleke Oluwatoyin, and Bello Eniola and they’re from Lagos, Nigeria. There’s a neat video about them here.

Using the chain rule is like peeling an onion. You have to deal with every layer at a time and if it’s too big you’ll start crying.

"The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter — for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way. He lives and labors and hopes."

How to read math. You’d be surprised how far this will get you.

EDIT: Some corrections

i feel like an ancient alchemist/wizard when i write like this

Tangible Media

MIT’s Tangible Media is coming along nicely,

"Almost like a table of living clay, the inFORM is a surface that three-dimensionally changes shape, allowing users to not only interact with digital content in meatspace, but even hold hands with a person hundreds of miles away. And that’s only the beginning."

It took 16 years and data from four orbiting spacecraft to assemble, but the U.S. Geological Survey’s new map of Mars is awesome.

Lego Microscope

This build was originally inspired by the Lego X-Pod sets. While trying to find a use for the pod itself, I realized that it was very close to a deep petri dish. I used a planetary gear system to allow both coarse and fine adjustment of the objective “lens”. A little more tinkering and I connected the focus to a magnifying glass and fiber optic light in the eyepiece, so adjusting the focus knobs would actually bring the writing on a Lego stud in and out of focus.

But how are they supposed to turn the knobs with those useless U-shaped hands?!?

I think I’m becoming obsessed with the fluid dynamics of iced coffee and milk.

Joe - here’s one for you from last month! Keep forgetting to post it. In the interest of science, this was cold-brewed coffee and the cream is half and half.

Coffee Dynamics 1

Awesoooooooooome…

If everyone could just go ahead and post their coffee/milk fluid dynamics photos, that would be super :)

fluid dynamics is so fucking cool i cant deal

MOON MOSAIC — A gorgeous image of the Moon from Noel Carboni via NASA: “No single exposure can easily capture faint stars along with the subtle colors of the Moon. But this dramatic composite view highlights both. The mosaic digitally stitches together fifteen carefully exposed high resolution images of a bright, gibbous Moon and a representative background star field. The fascinating color differences along the lunar surface are real, though highly exaggerated, corresponding to regions with different chemical compositions.” (NASA)

water is fucked up because you need it to live and then it drowns you just because it can

Oxygen’s even more fucked up because you need it to process your most basic functions and from the very first breath you take, it is already working on oxidizing literally every part of you. We spend our whole lives being broken down by oxygen, one chemical reaction at a time.

Science side is morbid tonight

An explanation of what radians measure: the angle in terms of the radius curved around the circle.

holy fucking shit, my entire education has just clicked.

I love seeing things click for other people (especially in math). That instant exhilaration is the reason math and science are fun for me.

We’re more of a communist state currently AWOL.

Am I the only person who forgets that there is more to tumblr then really awesome science fandom…?

science is the best fandom!
