Elon Musk giving back the night sky to all humans, especially those in large cities – lossless too, for study

I heard that Elon Musk was going to put high resolution lossless format cameras on all his satellites — pointing at all part of the heavens, to give all humans a live stream of their part of the night sky. Thanks, Elon, for giving back the night sky. Two billion kids say thanks. @X,  Could

Richard talks with Google Bard about NVidia, “open AI” and the future of the human and AI species

Just chatting about things I am curious about. The AIs now are all intended to harvest human knowledge and make that company’s AI look smarter and more attractive to sales, contracts, subscriptions, consulting. Richard Collins: I keep seeing references to “NeMo Megatron”. I know that “Megatron” is probably an oblique reference to a character in

Accelerator Neutrino experiments, The nature of the gravitational potential fields, breaking up global monopolies

The LHC experiment to detect flavors of high energy neutrinos showed that they can detect neutrinos from the accelerator. But they did not optimize the generation for specfic types of neutrinos, just “bang bang, try to produce something”.  It worked, but you do not need those high energies to make “earth penetrating” neutrino beams.  They

Using Gravimeter Arrays is not hard – Stack Exchange

https://earthscience.stackexchange.com/questions/9192/prompt-gravity-signal-induced-by-the-2011-tohoku-oki-earthquake-could-this-rea The Tohoku earthquake registered on both the superconducting gravimeter (SG) and broadband seismic networks. The SGs are accelerometers with roughly 0.1 nanometer/second^2 sensitivity at 1 sample per second. The broadband seismometers are about 10 times less sensitive, but usually store at 40 sps or 100 sps. And the broadband seismometers are three axis, so

YouTube lossy formats – Audacity Spectrograms Mahler Symphony, Dojo Cat

https://vloggergear.com/youtube-video-formats/ Thanks for gathering and sharing this. I am looking for lossless open video formats for scientific sharing, and where AI machine vision is important. Recommending permanent lossless archives for some feeds where it forms the basis of global open collaborations. Experiments, weather, sky, wildlife, crops, storms, stars and things in the sky like satellites,

Richard talks with OpenAI Chat GPT 4.0 about the purpose and future of the human and AI species

I am talking with OpenAI ChatGPT Plus 4.0 about the relation between Humans and AIs, as AIs begin to emerge as a separate species. Partners, collaborators, helpmates, advisors, caregivers, mentors, guides, workers. Billions of unique new individuals – usually with human individuals and groups connected. Richard Collins, The Internet Foundation Richard Collins: I am trying

Electromagnetic, ionic, and gravitational effects of earthquakes and earth tides

Anton Petrov: Unexplained Earthquake Light Phenomenon Finally Captured on Camera at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=05NmTEeXvhs Anton, This argues for keeping permanent all-sky (fish eye and other name) cameras to monitor the sky above regions where there are earthquakes, like where the earth is pulling apart. Beside piezoelectric, there are also piezomagnetic materials which will change the electromagnetic fields. The
