I visited WashU’s special collections today and held in my winter-pink hand a cuneiform tablet from 2325 BC. The message is keeping track of food for 35 sheep; various amounts of barley and bran received over 30 days. #histodons #bookhistory #designhistory

I live in #Norway and the dark season is upon us. If you live in or travel to the right place, that means #northernlights! Sadly, I have not seen any #aurora for a while now, but here are a few pictures I took in #Iceland (first picture) and northern Norway back in 2018

Got a great shot! iPhone 14 Pro into. Celestron Nexstar 8. Best frame I’ve ever nabbed of the moon.

Ok, prepare to feast your eyes on this spooky image we've just released at ESO: the Vela supernova remnant, the ghostly remains of a massive star that went out with a bang some 11,000 years ago.

You can find more information here: eso.org/public/news/eso2214/

including links to the full resolution version with 554 megapixels!

In case you have not seen the astonishing new pictures by the #JWST yet. Here we can see
1. A stellar death
2. A stellar birth
3. A cluster of 5 galaxies
4. Galaxies from around 13 billion years ago (the red distorted ones)

The James Webb Space Telescope truly is one of the greatest scientific acheivements in human history.

Comparing the Hubble’s image to that that of the new Webb telescope
