Nasa is currently livestreaming a conference about the discovery of a new solar system !
“Astronomers have detected no less than seven Earth-sized worlds orbiting a cool dwarf star known as TRAPPIST-1.The six inner planets lie in a temperate zone where surface temperatures range from zero to 100C.
Of these, at least three are thought to be capable of having oceans, increasing the likelihood of life.
No other star system known contains such a large number of Earth-sized and probably rocky planets.”

Here’s a piece of silicon carbide
(SiC) from a geology basic course, which I’m taking as an elective (it’s relaxing next to Quantum Mechanics 😄). Because of its high strength and thermal conductivity, SiC has uses in cutting tools, car parts, electric systems, heating elements and much more. One cool example: ceramic plates in bulletproof vests.

as a queer person who’s already 28, let me just tell you how huge the difference feels to me with series’ like steven universe, the foxhole court, sense8, cucumber or eyewitness that have canoncally queer characters that dont die, arent stereotypes, arent white, go through coming to terms with their identity in realistic ways and not interpreted through the hetersexual lense, who have mental health issues and face other problems besides being queer in a heterosexist world and WHO ACTUALLY KISS and/or FUCK in canon.
like 12-15 years ago when i was figuring stuff out, there was NOTHING like that. what i had was bad lesbian porn on the internet (when internet wasnt also that available), yaoi or yuri trash that was often bad porn, queerbating bullshit, or some random sidecharaters that died or villains who were gay. and probably also died.
I can feel there’s a rift going on. And i dont think it’s gonna stop. I’m excited for whats coming the next 5 years.
AND I’M SO HAPPY ABOUT IT cuz even now i just want representation so shows dont bore the fuck out of me, but imagine how different things must be for teens watching these shows. I hope you feel all loved and supported cuz you are!!!
