Asking Elon Musk for all sky cameras on all satellites and vehicles, and free bandwidth to share globally

Robin, Good points.  I do not know much about DirectShow, I suppose it could be upgraded to 32 bits per channel, or whatever.  I was thinking of making a universal wrapper so the cameras could be used as services over ethernet, wireless, usb, hdmi, direct from memory – whatever you happen to have.  But putting

Twitter about World History Encyclopedia

https://twitter.com/whencyclopedia @whencyclopedia Our mission is “to engage people with cultural heritage and to improve history education worldwide” ==> “History” for everyone with access to the Internet. (~4.9 B)   “solar system colonization” now gives new meanings to “world”, global, “world-wide”,” everywhere”.

Twitter to Sony about lossless formats for global sharing of science data

@Sony Sony donated an Alpha 7S for a live webcam at Maunakea Subaru Telescope. Could Sony also help promote better Internet standards for lossless video? Look at these poor star pixels. Live stars need lossless formats. Global sharing for science data. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH90mZnmgD4  

Note on my Facebook page about gravitational energy density

For more than 50 years I have been trying to understand the gravitational potential. I used it for orbit determinations when I worked at my first job at the CIA, then later worked on a NASA project to determine the geopotential itself using satellite orbits and measurements to solve for the shape and properties of

Comment on Comment – Supernova near the earth 2.5 M years ago

Where do the elements come from? Nucleosynthesis in stellar environments at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C-F7afeupw Interesting. (“fe60” OR “al36”) “supernova” has 6170 entry points (Google, 26 Jun 2022) and fairly rich in particulars Interstellar 60 Fe on the Surface of the Moon at https://journals.aps.org/prl/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevLett.116.151104 Limits on Supernova-Associated Fe 60 / Al 26 Nucleosynthesis Ratios from Accelerator Mass Spectrometry Measurements

Update to Solar System Gravimetry and Gravitational Engineering

Everyone, I am including this as an update to this project because the routine laboratory and wide area measurement of the speed of the gravitational potential is critical to all the groups working together. You HAVE to be able to measure the signals at high enough sampling rates to get good correlations and comparisons. For

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 to All Sky Camera group

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696 Can someone tell me the current best all sky set up? I was thinking of one that had zoom from all sky to 30x. Any suggestions. Thanks. I was looking at PTZ low light security cameras. Dan Bush Thank you. Your picture gallery is filled with beautiful images. I searched fro Hikvision cameras and

Comment on Houston Astronomical Society website and practices

Debbie, First, your novice videos should be globally public on your website.  Either HAS is an organization devoted to all people knowing about the sky and heavens, or not.  Share openly.  If there are things specific to secure gatherings at private places, those should not be shared, but minimized or separate.  I tell groups like

Comment on Nuclear Desalination Report

http://Article Nuclear Desalination: A State-of-the-Art Review Thank you for putting this together. This is a clear, and fairly complete, review of the issues, economics, performance and maintenance of nuclear desalination processors. I just wish that each site’s operational, financial and social impacts were public on the Internet in a form for comparison and optimization. Encouraging
