Sometimes we come across patients who forever alter the way we practice as nurses; The very first patient who coded on our watch, the first patient who expired, or the first who survived a cardiac arrest - defied all odds to be subsequently discharged home. The very first patient who challenged our knowledge, or beliefs; prompting us to learn more, or take a stand - whether it was about our own confidence, values, or perhaps gain a deeper insight into our deepest fears. The impact of grief, or memory of extraordinary circumstances never quite leaves a nurse, regardless of how far we advance, or any time that may pass - impressions of the lives we encountered that remind us of our own humanity.

Mostly Mute Monday: Crater Chains of the Moon

"While craters young and old litter its surface, large numbers of catenae, or crater chains, can be found as well on both the near and far sides. While about 20 have been known since the 1990s, often extending for hundreds of kilometers, many more have been discovered with the advent of LROC and citizen science projects like Moon Zoo."

You might think that your odds of getting 3, 5, or even 10 or more craters all next to each other and in a row on an object like the Moon are astronomically small. Yet, we’ve identified dozens of features that show exactly this! Here are some of the most spectacular, along with the redux of the leading ideas of where they came from, including secondary impacts, tidally disrupted impactors and volcanic and geologic explanations.
