I'v been thinking about this, if it only took one gene to stop aging there would be people in history who lived to 200 because thats how evolution works, nature throws random shit on the wall and see what stick.

on the other hand progéria does exist, and while it looks like aging, it is unlikely to be the same process.

Back when I was an intern I gave the end of year discharge speech. The director (orthopedic surgeon) gave me a pat on them shoulders and told me "you have an orthopedist build, if you ever wanna apply to this hospital just gimme a call".
This was the only and single time I was ever congratulated throughout the whole intern year. Good memories.

>It is of course easy to laugh at such ignorance and hubris and you may think that this is all really quite harmless. But I think that the Flat Earthers are actually dangerous. For one thing, the public flaunting of such a basic form of science denial is evidence that the problem of public ignorance and disrespect for science is growing. The Flat Earthers may not be hurting anybody directly but the confusion and doubt they spread helps to create a culture of denial that could cost lives indirectly by affecting congressional decisions about climate change and family decisions about vaccination.

https://www.nytimes.com/2023/01/26/science/astronomy-asteroids-2023bu.html

The asteroid, named 2023 BUU, was scheduled to pass over the southern tip of South America at 7:27 p.m. Eastern time. The asteroid is fairly small -- less than 30 feet across, about the size of a truck -- and will be best visible in the skies to the west of southern Chile.

>The asteroid will not hit Earth

but will make one of the closest approaches ever by such an object, hurtling past Earth at just 2,200 miles above USA, according to a news release from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. This encounter puts the asteroid "well within the orbit of geosynchronous satellites," the statement noted, but the asteroid is not on track to hit any.

2023 BUU was unknown to NASA, or anyone, until last Saturday. Gennadiy Borisov, an amateur astronomer in Crimea, noticed the asteroid from the MARGO Observatory, a setup of telescopes that he has used to discover other interstellar objects. Astronomers then determined 2023 BUU's orbit around the sun and impending trip past Earth using data from the Minor Planet Center, a project sanctioned by the International Astronomical Union.

It publishes positions of newly found space objects, including comets and satellites, from information of several observatories worldwide.

An artificial GRBeacon is pretty intense. The Feds and the Russians and all them would probably get upset.

if you have an eyepiece projection adapter, take closeups of the core and then unsharp mask them, you can see the core's rotation that way sometimes

should be, core region has very high surface brightness, so good signal to noise even at stupidly high magnifications.

A schmidt cassegrain would be the optimal choice for that. If I ever buy one in the future I will definitely try this. Would be fun to do some scientific observations instead of just taking some fancy pictures.

its just a fancier picture, but its nice to be able to see something which moves at better than a snail's pace and has some unpredictable behaviors. sometimes you get to see a chunk of debris get ejected, thats always a big show with comets.
