Blink comparator at Lowell Observatory used by Clyde Tombaugh in the discovery of Pluto.
Oscar Gordon’s Tech Tuesday for 10/30
In Which Clyde Tombaugh Boldly Goes
[TT1] The most distant set of human remains is currently out past Pluto and getting ever more distant.
[TT2] Oh graphene, you amaze in ways big, and small.
[TT3] A new spin, or is it a twist?, on optical data transmission.
[TT4] I, for one, welcome our new Corvid overlords.
[TT5] Tavern out front, brick factory in the back.
[TT6] Well this isn’t going to help stop the Drug War.
[TT7] Surviving the slings and arrows of social media, Scientists Edition.
[TT8] Smart hydrophobic coatings. Basically an artificial semi-permeable membrane.
[TT9] I want to see this adapted to spot false confessions.
[TT10] Oh yeah, you just know some Marine is going to use this to freak people out by making the air next to them ‘talk’.
[TT11] Just because it’s cheap, doesn’t mean it’s easy, or enough.
[TT12] If the Corvids don’t get us, I’m pretty sure the Cephalopods will.
