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 APS pay per view

The Internet, even on Twitter, is for everyone. Every person in the world should have access to global tools, data, models. Always include the open link. If APS cannot stay in business otherwise, tell me why.   Nice paper, needs shared symbolic simulator. Collective effects on the performance and stability of quantum heat engines

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.  

Posted on my Facebook about Olbers paradox and an infinite universe

You might never have heard of “Olber’s paradox”, but it is one of those perennial provacative items that gets served with most introduction to physics and astronophysics classes. For the lecturer to strut their stuff and appear learned. Olber is Heinrich Wilhelm Olbers (1758-1840) and the link is I like to watch the night

Twitter simulation of fluids stirred by pointed paddles

Physics Magazine @PhysicsMagazine 8h Simulation videos illustrate how changing different parameters of the system alters how well two fluids mix together when stirred. (For the stirrers, tadpole and teeth shapes are best). Read the story by @astrogasparini. Replying to @PhysicsMagazine @PhysRevFluids and @astrogasparini Effectively Mixing Two Fluids at If only the simulations

Comment on Planck Temperature Video

The Planck Temperature – Absolute Hot: What is the hottest temperature possible If you had a $Thank button, I would have sent you a donation to encourage you to keep going and work harder. You have the right kind of curiosity, but you need to keep digging and read harder papers. Tone down “strange”

Twitter to @InnovationPhysics @InnovationPhys You are too focused on topics suitable for single person dissertations and individual performance. Need to coordinate and encourage solutions to global issues and opportunities. Answer “Where does this apply?” and encourage open global sharing of models and data.

Comment on Integrated Water Strategies, Thinking Outside The Pipe

Integrated Water Strategies: Thinking Outside The Pipe at These seem to be very expensive methods. Do you have a cost breakdown? Homes, schools, businesses, small farms, abandoned land, landfills, poor counties, poor cities, poor countries. Nothing wrong, except the world and climate change is very large. Teaching only methods – without also teaching how

Comment on Damping and Damped Harmonic Motion Video – Get out of the way and let us see what you did

Damping and Damped Harmonic Motion at Don’t stand in front of the board. Use a laser pointer and stand outside the screen. Your hand waving just gets in the way. Nice presentation, if I did not have to look around you to see the equations and results. You can use a small inset with you,
