Not what to believe, or how to believe, but what to know, and how to know, because knowledge is power, power is everything in politics, so itʼs nonsense if society is more powerful than authority which usually controlled by politicians.—Kyairey—Aug 4—2019: THE GOOD THING ABOUT SCIENCE IS THAT IT'S TRUE WHETHER OR NOT YOU BELIEVE IN IT. Math is the language of the universe. So the more equations you know, the more you can converse with the cosmos Not only do we live among the stars,the stars live within us. We are all connected; To each other, biologically. To the earth, chemically. To the rest of the universe atomically. The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you. SCIENCE MATTE RS WE ARE IN THE UNIVERSE AND THE UNIVERSE IS IN US Everyone should have their mind blown once a day NEIL deGrasse TYSON I am driven by two main philosophies: know more today about the world than I WE ARE NOT FIGURATIVELY.BUT LITERALLY knew yesterday and lessen the suffering of others. You'd be STARDUST Which came first the Chicken or the Egg? The Egg-laid by a bird that surprised how far that gets you. DO THE PHYSICS was not a LET'S MAKE AMERICA Chicken. Knowing how to think empowers you far beyond those who know only wht to think SMART AGAIN KEEP LOOKING UP GOD IS AN EVER-RECEDING POCKET OF SCIENTIFIC IGNORANCE. If aliens did visit us, I'd be embarrassed to tell them we still dig up fossil fuels from the ground as a source of energy. Space Aliens may be surprised to learn that Humans have multiple languages & cultures and we kill one another because of it.

Scientific nomenclature is sh#te but sometimes funny.: friend-called-boxcar who was the fool who was tasked with naming the galax y and the only adjective they could think of was skazuhira-miller scientist: (gazing up at space) scientist: sure is a milky boy freshfriedtrash NO YOU DONT UNDERSTAND MERS ARE THE SHITTEST EVER AT ASTRONO NAMING THINGS I KID YOU NOT When it came time to name the two theoretical particle types that might be dark matter THEY INTENTIONALLY CHOSE THE NAMES SO THAT THE ACRONYMS WOULD SPELL "WIMPS" AND MACHOS I SHIT YOU NOT THEY ARE FUCKING TERRIBLE AT NAMING ANYTHING braincoins I just listened to a talk by Neil deGrasse Tyson himself LAST NIGHT and he went on about this more than once m walking down the street and I'm like pretty rock... and some Geologist is like 'actually that's anorthosite feldspar and I'm like 'Nevermind, I don't want it anymore. Any biologists in the audience? [some clapping] Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. The most important molecule in the human body, what did you name it? It has NINE SYLLABLES and it's so long that even YOU GUYS abbreviate it as DNA'! But astrophysicists and astronomers? No, man, we call it like we see it. Star made of neutrons? NEUTRON STAR. Small white star? WHITE DWARF You know that big red spot on Jupiter? Know what we cal " lled it? JUPITER'S RED SPOT the-scarlet-spider okay i'm glad you mentioned the biologist nonsense bc their naming methods are the bane of my existence gallusrostromegalus I see your astrophysicists-are-shit-at-names and raise you Marine-Biologists-Are-Fucking-Maniacs See this beautiful creature? It's a carnivorous deep-sea sponge that lives off of Easter Island and never sees the light of day, as it's about 9000 feet down. Those delicate-looking orbs are covered in millions of tiny hooked spines, which latch onto anything unfortunate enough to bump into it, and hold it in place as it is digested alive by the sponge's skin. Amazing, beautiful and profoundly creepy. They could have given it so many cool names. Could have drawn on mythology (I think Scylla would have been an appropriate reference), the region it was found in, the textured skin, PHAGOCYTOSIS, anything! You wanna know what they called it? PING-PONG TREE SPONGE. Good job, marine biologists. Source: friend-called-boxcar Scientific nomenclature is sh#te but sometimes funny.

For this ThrowbackThursday post, we look back at @neildegrassetyson's epic burn directed at flat Earth conspiracy theorists, which he tweeted in November of last year. 😂😂 . Via @inverse, "Here, he lets the (obviously photoshopped) photo speak for itself. The major claim in flat Earth theory, of course, is that it is flat. During a normal lunar eclipse, we look to the sky to see the moon go completely dark — a consequence of the Earth’s shadow blocking light from the sun from reaching the moon. This is possible because the Earth is both spherical and huge. If the Earth was flat, the shadow it would cast on the moon’s surface when it got between the sun and the moon would, in turn, look flat, as it does in Tyson’s photo. . This, obviously, is never going to happen." 🌍 🌎 🌏 🌐 . You can read original @inverse article in its entirety here: https:-bbc.in-2EPCByY .
