One of my coworkers has these. I just want to remind everyone that this is a world-class scientific facility.

And sims for the fiscal year have started, off to Mars to kick it off. Yondu on deck!

I’m turning 31 a week from today. It’ll be a real prime year.

Science papers are always full of figures, but very rarely are they to scale, but in this astrophysics paper, which I’ve never heard of an astrophysics paper having a figure to scale, the authors included a 1:1 scale of a 5 Earth-mass back hole. So take 5 Earths worth of mass, compress it so it curbed spacetime infinitely, and this is how big that would be.

My hand for scale, don’t let your actual hand get that close to a real black hole though.

Hayabusa-2, JAXA's asteroid sampling probe, dropped a target marker yesterday to help aid in the landing of a second rover on the surface of asteroid Ryugu. Here's an overlay of images taken every 4s for about a minute. The rover, called MINERVA-II2 Rover-2, will be deployed next month.

This has been such a cool mission to watch, and I can't wait for us to get those samples back.
