"Astronomers have found a huge ring structure looping around the nearby (and absolutely spectacular) galaxy M104, also known as the Sombrero Galaxy. It’s likely elliptical, encircling the entire galaxy and something like 370,000 light years along its long axis."

The Penrose-Hameroff theory of quantum consciousness argues that microtubules are structured in a fractal pattern which would enable quantum processes to occur.

If quantum measurements are one day taken from the human brain, they could be compared against our results to definitely decide whether consciousness is a classical or a quantum phenomenon.

By investigating quantum transport in our artificially designed fractal structures, we may have taken the first tiny steps towards the unification of physics, mathematics and biology, which could greatly enrich our understanding of the world around us as well as the world that exists in our heads.

"Crispy golden brown roasted potatoes: HELLO yes.
Tender baby broccoli with a little crunchy char: check check.
Baked salmon, simply salted, peppered, brushed with olive oil, and baked to flaky perfection: absolutely.
And enter -> the herby, creamy, lemony lemon sauce. Yes, yes, and y-e-s. Everything else is delicious, but if we’re being honest, it really just serves in the supporting role for this sauce."

"A surprisingly large number of academic studies—as in, more than one—have applied mathematical modeling to the concept of human-vampire co-existence."

> Summer of Math Exposition #1
> We want to encourage more people to put out #explainers of math online. This is a #competition where anyone can submit a video, blog post, interactive game, or whatever else they dream up, and after the deadline we will select around 4 or 5 to be featured in a #3blue1brown video.

Hubble is Back!
the swap of the telescope’s payload computer seems to have fixed the issue that has kept it on safety mode for weeks

Now we know what to do when restart doesn’t fix the problem…

Sure, you can talk about per-capita adjustment, but if you want to solve the problem, it's obvious that this is the problem group you need to focus on.
