Solar system colonization – needs and opportunities, “working globally” becomes “working solar system wide”

With LEDs going to lower and lower energies, moving electrons is probably less expensive than digging holes and trying to concentrate the rather thin light on Mars. I was gathering what groups and resources are needed to send small nuclear packages to Mars to provide the energy needed. The old dream of atomic energy was

New Video – Some NOAA Visualizations Data Projections More Gravity Sun Moon Global Cooperation

Some NOAA Visualizations Data Projections More Gravity Sun Moon Global Cooperation https://youtu.be/4waIa-2tMlY My comments and a few suggestions. Then another pitch for global cooperation, and for help with gravimeter arrays to scan the atmosphere, the oceans, the earth interior, the moon, sun and planets and moons. Richard Collins, Director, The Internet Foundation The video refers

Trying to come to grips with broad terms like “fluctuations”

Alexander If you search for “fluctuations” OR “fluctuations” on google, it will give you about 97 Million entry points. For the last 23 years I have been tracing through these kinds of searches to see exactly what people are doing with terms like “fluctuations”. As you can imagine, this particular term, “fluctuations” has lots of

Notes about PixInsight on Houston Astonomical Society Facebook closed group

I have not used PixInsight, but read what they are doing at https://pixinsight.com/. The commercial license is 230 Euros (about $275). They have free versions, but not sure what limitations, if any. All their image processing workshops listed are from 2017. There are software tutorials by their “PTeam” members at https://pixinsight.com/tutorials/index.html I do not know how many

Video about NASA.gov – draft sketch of some issues and ideas

Ben NASA Profile Video 1 Trying to summarize the methods and issues and goals https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aARsXPWQnRo This is a draft review of some NASA.gov pages. I am trying to formalize and simplify the recommendations for the whole Internet. NASA is so important to the human species right now. If this solar system colonization goes smoothly and

Comment on “Aerodynamic Center and Center of Pressure location. Computation and Misconceptions”

​At https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=67eTLeNwLgE Alexander, You are using what looks like to be a good computer tool for these calculations and visualizations. But you don’t explain your tools and give links to let others know what to use, or what you recommend. I watched your hysteresis video. It is really shaky and hard to watch. You could use

NASA Web methods, policies, practices, staff, training, purpose

Emily, I have not forgotten about you and NASA.gov. In fact, I spent many full days checking different aspects of what is going on, who is doing it, who it serves, how much (if any) user involvement is allowed, the level of practice shown in the pages, integration (or not) with contractors and federal agencies,

About optically connected processors for home use and many things

Nora, Thanks, I will keep that in mind. If you cast tiny angular (square, triangular, for example) blocks of plastic on ends of an optical fiber, then polish the whole thing, that would give a fiber that would alighn properly with a corresponding hole and fiber (or fibers).  It is something that human hands could

Merging and upgrading sensor networks towards new industries and materials

Shawn, The atmospheric gravitational noise is much larger than the signals from the subsurface (usually). The noise in that gravimeter you want to buy is mostly atmospheric and thermal radiation field connected. Calibrate it against the sun and moon first. Then against 3D near realtime atmospheric models. (Climate and meteorology are just atmospheric, and the
