Convivo todos os dias com alunos de graduação/pós graduação e perceber que eles estão perdendo o brilho no olhar, a vontade de fazer ciência por mero acaso político é algo entristecedor 😓

Sei o quão é difícil ser aluno de pós: não se esqueçam que há poucos anos eu estava aí, como vcs! Mas digo que a cada dia na jornada da pós, aprendi a ser um eu melhor e maior, a superar oq antes eu chamava de “meu limite”. Foi lá na pós graduação que me vi forte o bastante para ter fôlego e lutar. Lutar para hoje poder dizer que faço o que amo e quero ajudar aos aspirantes ao caminho da ciência a mostrarem o que o Brasil possui de melhor. 
Quero que você tenha fôlego, tenha coragem e mostre que ser brasileiro vai muito além do futebol e do carnaval 😉

Those who watched the full 51-minute version of Jeff Bezos’ May 9 Blue Moon announcement were treated to a tutorial on the work of Dr. Gerard K. O’Neill. In the 1970s Dr. O’Neill popularized the idea of space colonies that rotate in orbit allowing tens of thousands of inhabitants to live comfortable lives in Earth-like habitats. Bezos even commissioned updated renderings to excite the audience’s imagination.

Bezos articulated, as he has on many occasions that human civilization should and must expand out into the space to live and work in permanent space settlements. Doing so will allow the best planet in the Solar System, the Earth, to become a protected treasure in the vast harshness of space.

the scorpio moon was out all night last night, it seemed. i awoke around 1am to thunderstorms and lightning, and stayed awake in bed for a while meditating while half asleep. i looked up at 4:30am when the sky cleared and the moon looked like a large orange blazing sun with venus hovering as intensely and as close to her as she could. 💎 🔶️ it seems antares is also close by bc she looked super orange by morning. #antares #bluemoon #orangemoon #kemetic #isis #themoon #luna #scorpio #scorpiomoon #astrology #astronomy #magi #magician #manifest #godisawoman #godisablackwoman #melanin #beautyway #beautydao #alchemy #beautysecret

THE SUN is the star at the centre of the SOLAR SYSTEM. it is about 5 billion years old and continue to shine as it does now for about another 5 billion years. It is a yellow main sequence star about 1.4 million km in diameter. It consist almost entirely of hydrogen and helium 💖

This week’s Man-Crush-Monday is Sir John William Frederick Herschel, a leading scientist of his time and the namesake of Herschel, Saskatchewan. Though Herschel is most notably known for carrying on the astronomical studies of his father, helping found the Royal Astronomical Society and inventing a new type of telescope, some of his other achievements include illustrating and documenting the plants of South Africa, inventing blueprinting, and inspiring the scientific endeavours of Charles Darwin. Want to learn more? Come check out the Ancient Echoes Interpretive Center in Herschel, Saskatchewan!  #mancrushmonday #astronomy #williamherschel #williamherscheltelescope #sirjohnherschel #photography #blueprinting #charlesdarwin #darwin #royalastronomicalsociety #saskatchewan #uranus

"Multi-verse theory says there is an infinite number of universes that represent every possibility that could ever exist. 
Omni-verse theory goes one step further and says there is an infinite number of multi-verses that represent different arrangements of these universes. It basically wraps everything in one additional layer of mind boggling infinity. 
Basically this omni-verse theory creates a loophole in logic for there to be worlds that form networks between themselves and worlds that don't without messing up the hierarchy of such a system as there would still be worlds that never connected. 
We are basically facilitating part of the theory that everything that can happen will happen in some universe since universes linking together is always one possibility even if it is done artificially in a simulation." ~Nanocheeze.com ✵ "Cosmic Centrifuge" by @yung.visiiion ✵ #interstellar #illustration #extraterrestrial #intelligence #eti #quantum #alchemy #ascension #art #digital #astronomy #evolutionary #astrology

NGC 1052-DF2 is an ultra diffuse galaxy in the constellation Cetus, which was identified in a wide-field imaging survey of the NGC 1052 group by the Dragonfly Telephoto Array. It has been proposed that the galaxy contains little or no dark matter, the first such discovery. On March 20, 2019, a follow-up study announcing the discovery of a second UDG lacking dark matter, DF4, was published confirming this.

Photos by Babak Tafreshi @babaktafreshi | This is a close-up of the Red Sprite, a rarely captured phenomenon and an atmospheric puzzle. These large-scale electrical discharges occur in clusters above the troposphere, about 50 to 90 kilometers (31–56 miles) high. Sprites are colorless to the eye, just a patch of light flashing in the sky, but a sensitive camera reveals the true color and stunning details. Sprites are challenging to capture, as they only appear for only a fraction of a second and are much fainter than lightning. At midnight on May 2, I was at a Star Party, a stargazing program near the McDonald Observatory. With a massive active thunderstorm cloud on the horizon some 100 to 200 kilometers away and clear sky above it, I knew the conditions were ideal for seeing the sprite. The second camera shows the same sprite in a wider angle (swipe). Follow me @babaktafreshi for more of the world at night photography.

Já dizia Einstein, “se as abelhas desaparecerem da face da Terra, a humanidade terá apenas mais quatro anos de existência. Sem abelhas não há polinização, não há reprodução da flora, sem flora não há animais, sem animais, não haverá raça humana.”
·
Um mundo sem #abelhas significaria um mundo sem frutas, legumes, nozes e sementes. Quase um terço das culturas do mundo depende das abelhas para a polinização, mas ao longo da última década, os insetos foram morrendo a taxas sem precedentes em todo o mundo. Os pesticidas, doenças, parasitas, o mau tempo e o estresse de ser transportado de pomar para pomar para polinizar culturas diferentes,... Todos desempenham um papel no declínio nas populações de abelhas gerenciadas. A falta de abelhas ameaça agricultores que dependem desses animais que se alimentam de néctar e do pólen para os seus serviços de polinização. Temos poucas defesas contra uma eventual extinção de abelhas.

I've been posting a lot of night time photos of the Milky Way lately so I feel like a change. Here's a view of Smith Rock State Park as the sun is just hitting a peak. It's such a beautiful area and I wish I had more time to explore. It also made me want to take up rock climbing. -

Kallima inachus, the orange oakleaf, Indian oakleaf or dead leaf, is a nymphalid butterfly found in Tropical Asia from India to Japan.

🦋 With wings closed, it closely resembles a dry leaf with dark veins and is a spectacular and commonly cited example of camouflage.

🦋 With wings closed, it closely resembles a dry leaf with dark veins and is a spectacular and commonly cited example of camouflage.

If the Moon replaced the @iss 😨
.
“If the Moon was at the same distance as the @ISS - just 420 kilometers (260 miles) away from us.
😨 - probably one of my favorite @yetidynamics videos ever.
Normally the Moon orbits much slower than the earth rotates so it rises in the east and sets in the west, however at 420km it orbits much faster, faster than the earth rotates underneath (1 full rotation: 90 mins), therefore it will rise in the west and set in the east.
Via Phil Plait @thebadastronomer "The Moon would fill more than half the sky. It would also appear to rotate, although it would actually still be tidally locked to our planet like it currently is. And some Earthlight would reflect onto the Moon, except for where the Moon blocks the Sun. It would cross the sky in very roughly five minutes!"
🌃 
Of course, in reality, if the Moon was actually this close it would break apart due to gravitational forces and bye bye Humans.
