Facebook has no “share” or “tweet”

What is the ratio of nuclear to gravitational energy for the sun during its whole life cycle?

David, I was starting to read “Submillimetre Astronomy” by Watt and Webster and they were talking about molecular clouds. They mention the magnetic energy density being approximately equal to the kinetic energy density, then talked about a cascade of scales.  It has been on my mind to check how much nuclear energy in generated in

Comment on Collaboration for Global Problem Solving: The Case for Food

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anOEGXpppIk Too bad the person running the camera did not frame the slides so they could be read. You had some good things to say, but no links to resources, nor framework. Your EAT Foundation is not linked, nor the Atkinson Center. YouTube can be a place for discussion and collaboration, but it takes a

Astronomical Societies – Everyone has a right to see and study the sky, without begging or paying

Luis, I think the default should be – if I am looking at my settings – I want to change them.  I had to figure out that I first had to click on “Make Changes to Primary Member Record” (not a confirmation of changes, but getting permission to change it at all), which was after

Comment on UN fund raising practices on the Internet

Jane, I commented on your “Urgent appeal” posting. You have edited and curated many things. How would you approach the wide variety and purposes of postings on the Internet related to “Afghanistan”?  — Any topic that has millions or billions of entry points on the Internet? That is what I am facing with the Internet

Comments to AllSky group on Facebook

I bought this Arducam MIPI camera for the Raspberry Pi. It is 4672*3496 and the best that anyone seems to have gotten is 1 frame every 10 seconds. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W6LTFZC. I think it needs a $200 computer, not a $100 one. And some assembler or C programming. But then look at the time lapses posted by

Comment on how to copy trees and find Birth Parents using Ancestry DNA

I have used Family Tree Maker which syncs to Ancestry. You download the trees to FTM and merge them, and then upload to a new tree. The merging is tedious but better than “save to tree” bit by bit. It is the ONLY method I found that preserves the records as records so that all
