Fun Fact

Seeing a black hole in radio waves stunned the world in 2019. But seeing the same extreme region in multiple wavelengths of light is now "the kitchen sink of physics". Our @nadiamdrake has the details for #BlackHoleWeek on @NatGeo #ngstaff https://t.co/rYWIbq0HZM

Really great piece here abt the American definition of hospitality and how inadequate it is in this current climate when it comes to protecting workers. I would add "hospitality" always felt like code for "disappear" to please a certain type of customer. https://t.co/JVZ4dB2HcI

Just in time for your midday lunch break, read all about the "staggeringly beautiful" world of parasites, and why ecologists are fighting to save (most of) them. By the always delightful @GoryErika + stunning photos by @anandavarma on @NatGeo #ngstaff https://t.co/xtD30lcick

“The attitude to take is sort of cautious optimism,” physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed says. But if this result bears out, it's worthy of a Nobel prize, reports our @michaelgreshko with editor @jaywbennett on @NatGeo #ngstaff https://t.co/HExLiQx0j0

Quoted @amymaxmen

Media: Stop freaking people out with scary variant headlines! They're frazzled & we want the public to know when a variant *ACTUALLY* escapes vaccines regularly. Questions to ask when you see a press release 🧵: -Why do scientists think it's deadlier, etc? ("Double mutant"👇🏼🙄) https://t.co/DSbVoSX3nW

Great thread. There are 2 problems with much of the variant coverage. On one side, we have: 🚨🚨🚨OMG MUTATION☣️☣️☣️ On the other, we have: Nothing to worry about here, because (T cells/herd immunity/scientists are being negative again) Neither side is 100% wrong or right https://t.co/G8gOJSyier

In a twist AC fans will appreciate, archaeologists borrowed from the video game toolkit - using Clo3D, Unreal Engine, Blender, Range, and PicPick to reconstruct ancient Germanic chain armor. Thanks to @spoke32 and editor @kristinromey! https://t.co/cehE1nG0hX

Noises I did not expect to wake me up while living in DC: Not one, but two woodpecker species using our lone backyard tree as a drum. Based on this guide, I’m thinking downy and northern flicker. https://t.co/6TCAi7pT3Q

The Falcon 9 second stage from the Mar 4 Starlink launch failed to make a deorbit burn and is now reentering after 22 days in orbit. Its reentry was observed from the Seattle area at about 0400 UTC Mar 26. https://t.co/FQrBrUoBHh

Hi #BirdTwitter : Anyone know what these beauties might be? I am cleaning up old files and found them in a pile of pics I took in Cape Canaveral, Florida, in 2011. Any insight is appreciated! https://t.co/dmXnYNsxsb

A bizarre fossil creature found in Mexico looks like a shark-ray hybrid. That's just the start of the weirdness. This moment of "wow!" is brought to you by the marvelous @Laelaps and editor @jaywbennett on @NatGeo #ngstaff https://t.co/2k7o2SGl1a

This is never easy to acknowledge, let alone fight to fix. But let’s keep fighting against racism and misogyny, which are inexorably linked. Let’s do better, and let’s teach our kids to do even better still: https://t.co/23qYoleMBd

And in October 2020, we published data showing that, while the U.S. ranks well on women’s rights overall, it varies a lot by state, and U.S. women are still *21 times* as likely to be killed by gun violence than women in other high-income countries: https://t.co/VvJ2tgoczO

Back in April 2020, our early reporting on wearing masks in the U.S. included talk of anti-Asian sentiments becoming more evident in North America: https://t.co/Y9FHqS3WxQ

Quoted @MelissaMayBorja

Six Asian American women were killed in Atlanta today. We're still learning about the motive. However, you should know this: most racist attacks against Asian Americans this past year have targeted women, and Asian American women are on edge. (1/15)

This is a painful time for Asian Americans. I hope everyone is taking time to listen and process the messages from the AAPI community right now, because sadly, this week's events and attitudes are heartbreaking but hardly surprising: https://t.co/FVKpUYA0F0

We’re troubleshooting @AAJA website, which is crashing from the traffic after we released guidance on covering the Atlanta shooting. It’ll be back up shortly, but please share these screenshots in the meantime. https://t.co/H7zuBRWDiJ

This deliciously macabre tale by @GoryErika includes what may be my favorite sentence ever written about Red Lobster. On @NatGeo (and in Erika's wonderful new book!) #ngstaff https://t.co/KfzwOPgy3H
