We've got a new dwarf planet in our solar system! 💫 It’s the most distant one ever discovered. 🎉 The tiny object, formally known as 2018 VG18 but nicknamed Farout, is about 18 billion kilometres away. It is about 500 kilometres across, big enough for it to be a dwarf planet. ✨ It also appears to be a pinkish colour, which might indicate that it has an icy surface. ❄🌸❄ 🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞🌞 Illustration by Roberto Molar Candanosa is courtesy of the Carnegie Institution for Science. 🔘🔘🔘🔘🔘🔘🔘 #astronaut #astro #astronomy #astrophysik #dwarfplanet #raumfahrt #zwergplanet #space #spaceexploration #science #scienceblog #scienceblogger #wissenschaftskommunikation #wisskomm #sciencejournalism #scicomm #spacestories #wissen #Bildung #naturwissenschaft #scienceiseverywhere #scienceisfun #sciencenerd #Wissenschaft #farout #welcome #soexciting

All packed and ready to go 🙈
Don’t look back unless it’s to see how far you’ve come!! (Or if your hubs is taking your pic!) 😂😂⁣ ⁣ But seriously, looking back at the weekend; with the souvenir treats making their way into my Monday snacks; you’d think it would make sense to just chuck it all in for the next two weeks and get back on track on January 1st...right?! With SO many holiday parties, shopping to do, traveling to deal with, what’s the point of starting now... that’s what New Years Resolutions are for!! Anyone else thinking that?!?⁣ 🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️🙋🏻‍♀️⁣ ⁣ But!! At the same time, you feel exhausted NOW, you’re grumpy and stressed and feeling blah because of not taking care of yourself or eating right...now 😳. ⁣ ⁣ I will tell you something I read today!! That ‘tis the season for making all kinds of promises to ourselves, most of which we’ll break!! AND that there’s a big difference between longing for the results that come from change and committing to do the work that such change requires!⁣ ⁣ You may WANT change but don’t necessarily want TO change, or put in the effort needed to get the change! I know you and I also gravitate towards predictable and unthreatening environments. So I have an idea that I’m suggesting for others that want to make a change for 2019...commit and start small, but start small now. ⁣ ⁣ I have an awesome set of 20 minutes OR LESS workouts, commit to 4-5 days a week, and making a couple healthy swaps and following some time saver tips for meals - being mindful of choices and set us up to enjoy the holidays without being super moody and stressed out!! That’s all we need for the little pick me and be ready to hit the ground running!! ⁣ ⁣ So let me ask you?? Are you kinda sorta interested in a change or are you committed to a change for 2019??? ⁣ ⁣ I have a plan and I’d love to do this together!!⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #cleaneating #selflovejourney #bodyconfidence #bettermood #keepitsimple #newyearsresolution #newyearchange #sciencemom #sciencenerd #spaceshuttle #beachhair #committochange #changewanted #mondaymotivation #aftertheweekend #toomanycookies #Dailyhabits
One thing I’ll never be accused of is being UNINQUISITIVE. Case in point, check out my homemade trembler detector in my hotel room. After feeling three tremors today, I decided I needed more empirical evidence. So filled to the brim - only water molecules holding the cap on this overly full glass - let’s see what the shaking really amounts to!🤓🤓#sciencenerd #earthquakedetector #earthquake #anchorage #alaska #trembler #quake #temblor
Where are my fellow recovering perfectionists at? I don't know about you, but mine has a tendency to come out in full force when things get busy and life gets stressful. I have a lovely way of over-functioning when life gets crazy. I own it. I recognize it. I'm working on it. It's easy to place really high expectations on ourselves - especially at this time of year. But today is was like the Universe knew exactly what I needed to hear. If we want to be truly happy, it's time to reduce our expectations and increase our appreciation. Life doesn't look like the Hallmark movies. Mine looks more like a kitchen sink full of dirty dishes and my dog sitting on the Christmas cards I'm trying to finish. You know, highlight reel sort of stuff over here :) But I'm full of appreciation. There was beautiful sunshine today. I was able to make a donation to the food pantry. My dirty dishes means we have plenty to eat. My sweet boy just wants to be near me. These are small things, but these are the things happiness is made of. We could focus on what we don't have, or become truly aware of what makes us incredibly blessed. You are as happy as you choose to be <3 . . . . . @robdial #choosehappy #nohighlightreelhere #terriermama #dogmomaf #catmomaf #publichealther #feministaf #marriednokids #nobabiesyet #iowafit #iowagirl #harrypotternerd #consistentaf #blondebob #blessed #christmascards #politicaljunkie #sciencenerd #lifeafter30 #peanutbutteraddict
A PhD is definitely a joint effort... and I couldn’t have done it without my supervisor, my mum and my dad 🥰
After having an insanely stressful week of work, finals, and an unexpected death in the family it was completely necessary to take a few days of recuperation. Aka some self care was needed this weekend whether it was cleaning, getting my workouts in, or going to get a coffee. And yesterday was the first time in a while that I felt this strong need to say a thank you prayer because God is just SO stinkin' faithful in every way. (Definitely should be thanking him daily) He was there for me while taking my tests (my final's grades are miraculous proof) and he was also there when my family and I needed him most this past weekend. 💕🙏 . . Have you thanked him lately??💖 . . #jesusiseverything #hisloveneverfails #heisfaithful #thankyouprayer #praisehim #familyiseverything #collegelife #healthscience #sciencenerd #sciencestudent #finalsweek #finalsareover #thankyoujesus #christmasbreak
The other cool present I got for Hanukkah is this trace fossil. These are tracks made by worm like animals in the earliest Cambrian era, more than half a billion years ago. They may not look like much but they're a record of some of the first complex animals ever to live on Earth.
This is amazing - a collection of protoplanetary discs, imaged in high-resolution by the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array in Chile. So what are you looking at? Those are all distant infant stars, still surrounded by the leftover gas and dust that made them. Astronomers think the gaps in the discs are being carved by baby planets still being formed. Once upon a time, our Solar System probably looked like this! 📷: ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO), S. Andrews et al.; NRAO/AUI/NSF, S.

Lava lamp science project and snowflake art with glue and salt! He learned the science behind what makes the lava lamp work. He was pretty in love with it! We’re going to make it in a water bottle next time! I also love how you can watch the process of my renovation behind Ethan, lol! #homeschool #homeschoolmom #homeschoolideas #learnthroughplay #creative #science #sciencenerd #sciencelover #scienceproject #renovation

Humans were never meant to live forever, but the impossible never stopped a scientist. Check out our latest video “Engineering Immortality?” to find out how the lifespan’s limits are being tested today—and what it means for society if they’re removed entirely. #Linkinbio to watch now.
After years of preparation, testing, and tragedy, @VirginGalactic has finally touched the edge of space. Last Thursday, the company's VSS Unity spaceship was released from its mothership and fired its hybrid rocket engine for a full minute, lifting the two pilots onboard to an altitude of 82.7 km to experience a period of weightlessness, before returning safely to Earth. The company hopes to soon offer paying customers the same experience. 🚀

Spending my afternoon helping my high schooler prepare for her Biology test. I actually really love Biology (I almost majored in it in college!), but not when it covers chemistry.😕🤔🤯 #sciencenerd #apologia #homeschool #almostfailedchemistry #twice :)
New week. New goals to crush. New opportunities to learn and grow. New challenges to overcome. I love the “newness” of Monday’s 🤗

Breaking news from @craftyphysicist ! . "Santa’s mass comes from the festive state of the Higgs Boson! . "The Higgs boson was finally confirmed after decades of speculation, in 2012. It was found at CERN, the 17 mile circumference particle accelerator in Switzerland. The Higgs boson is what gives everything mass. Finding this particle supported the our beloved Standard Model of Physics. Since then, CERN continued to make observations of the Higgs in new interactions (like a Higgs boson decaying!), as well as looking for new particles (none of which have been found… yet). But, CERN is now taking a two year break for upgrades (will restart in 2021). New data won’t be coming through, but discoveries will no doubt be made as we continue to analyze the data we already have." . Let's keep the holiday theme going!

The voice of the sea is seductive; never ceasing, whispering, clamoring, murmuring, inviting the soul to wander for a spell in abysses of solitude; to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation. #histology #histotech #histostain #NSH ˙ ➡️ http://qoo.ly/u5532
Large hadron collider also known as particle accelerator hsd been used for many scientific research like discovery of higgs boson(god particle)... What do you think can it explore the graviton?

I have trouble choosing favorites, so a fair number of Cunning Linguist Co. pins end up with multiple variants, like these Basic Bitches. Do you like to collect multiple colorways of the same design, or are you a one-and-done kind of pin collector? . . . #chemistrylover #chemistry #chemistrypuns #chemistrylife #chemistrylove #chemistrynerd #chemistryisfun #chemistryjokes #chemistryiscool #sciencegeek #scienceisfun #sciencebitch #scienceiscool #science #sciencenerd #sciencerules #puns #pun #pinsofinstagram #enamelpin #pinstagram #pingamestrong #pinsofig #pingame #lapelpin #lapelpins #pincommunity #pins #pincollector #enamelpins

My prayer partners are in their 50s and 70s and are earth science enthusiasts, which means literally every 15 minutes or so we stop to observe and analyze the duck migration this year or the classification of a beautiful leaf. 😂👏🏼🦆 it’s hilarious, but I love it. They both have such a deep appreciation for God and how he reveals himself in nature.

"What is the best diet?" ⬅️ this is a common question in the health and fitness industry. And the answer may surprise you... - 💥Here’s the truth: There's actually NO such thing as "one universal best diet". - Three main reasons for that ⤵️ - 🏃🏽‍♀️🏃🏾‍♂️Reason #1 : People Are Diverse. - 💥💥Since every individual has their own unique goals and limitations, taste preferences, budget, activity levels, and so many other factors... there’s no way there can be one “best” diet for all. - 👀We'll be sharing reasons #2 & #3 later this week. Stay tuned! - [For the full video, click the link in bio].
Sean Carroll is a theoretical physicist who is a professor of physics at Cal Tech and a big proponent of The Many-Worlds Interpretation of quantum mechanics. Although a physicist by training, Sean also knows a great deal of philosophy, evolutionary biology, information theory, and microbiology, all of which he uses to support his position in this book. He's also been known to dabble in religious debates but I was first made aware of his whereabouts since watching him on "The Universe". -- WORDS OF WISDOM: *Men seek to understand the world in terms of reasons or causes - Leibnitz's "principle of sufficient reason". -- * The fact that the Universe was once in a very low entropy state is just one of the "brute facts". -- *The arrow of time leads us to speak a language of purpose and desire even though we're only talking about molecules obeying the laws of physics. -- *The physics of everyday life are completely known, even if we lack complete knowledge about all of physics. This proposal comes from Frank Wilczek's "Core Theory". -- *"Nature is kind of a mess. We can be inspired by it, and occasionally horrified by it but nature simply is" - a very Spinozist idea! -- *Emergence refers to the existence or formation of collective behaviors — what parts of a system do together that they would not do alone (Sean uses the concept of emergence to discuss free will). -- MY THOUGHTS: "The Big Picture" is filled with big ideas that title live up to its title and Sean attempts to make big ideas very understandable to the layman. At the same time, he tries not to dumb them down too much - listening to his lectures online help in understanding the very scientific texts, if you are curious enough. He recognizes that a lot of scientific writings have a huge potential of sound boring, even to specialists, but Sean has a flair of exciting the reader. One might get the impression that this book is only about cut-throat science, but you come away with so much more. Any reader will be endowed with Sean's masterful ideas that come together to form a philosophy of what he's dubbed as "poetic naturalism".
