Feedback to Hotjar at iopscience.iop.org Is there anything more we could do

https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6382/ab685e Dear HotJar and IOP Readers, Your questions are too specific. I came here because of a search on Google for gravitational waves software, particularly how the signal on the two arms of each detector is extracted from the single interference strain data. Now your articles are all in text and pictures, so I have

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STtXdpD8LtM Neutrons have a permanent magnetic moment and can be accelerated (controlled) by magnetic gradient fields. This included dynamic gradients of many sorts. And nanoscale fields. search “neutron acceleration” and “neutron deceleration” to see people have not ignored the need to control and use neutrons. There are a thousand times that many people working on

Comment on Houston Astronomical Society Star Parties – Elon Musk All Sky Cameras

Steve and Amelia Goldberg, If Houston Astronomical Society (HAS) would share recordings online, then star parties can be continuous and world wide.
