Planets form in organic soups with different ingredients

Interesting article found on Mastodon, scientists have mapped the chemical composition of planetary nurseries. Looks like I have quite a bit of reading to do, as there are 3 papers linked to this article.

I have included the usual links to the original article & discourse discussion.

Biomolecules imaged at record-breaking resolution using localization atomic force microscopy

This is an article [1] from Physics World. We now have the ability to take really detailed images of molecules. This is really important, if not rather complex but we have made huge progress in this. Should aid study of molecules and perhaps open up new fields of research.

Back in 1989 IBM made their logo from Xenon atoms [4]. So I guess this shows how much progress we have made since then.

Novel food solutions for a more sustainable future – CNA

Interesting article from Channel News Asia (CNA) on sustainable food production. As climate change and disasters jeopardise food security, could the switch to alternative proteins be the solution to the region’s need for a sustainable food ecosystem? Money Mind reports.

Looks like some good innovation here. This was posted by GreenPeace [1] to Mastodon. The article [2] is worth reading so I am not going to try and paraphrase and sum up here as the message could end up getting lost that way. If you are not sure what Jackfruit are, I have also included a link to a BBC Food page on this [3].

I wasn't however aware that rice production was being affected by climate change. This really isn't good given how widespread rice is, for so many in Asia.

New evidence of a large cold spot partly causing dimming of Betelgeuse

This is another interesting item found on the Fediverse. It seems Betelgeuse is still active. It does appear that there are different ideas as to why this is happening

If Betelgeuse does go Super Nova then this activity may give clues to how stars can behave before hand, giving indications to future events that can be studied more closely perhaps.

I have added a discourse link in case anyone would like to comment further generally.

I have downloaded the paper for this, from Nature Communications.

Biotechnology Definition

As I have been making posts on the various webinars I have been attending. I decided to make a post to point to the definition of Biotechnology. This is for informational reasons. Included links to a few forms too.

Astronify testing

Donate using Liberapay

Back in 2020 I attended a Space Telescope Science Institute lecture on Astronify and wrote a review on this.

I an going to attempt to test the software out, so the first task is to install python-pip

May as well install this for both python and python3

apt install python-pip python-pip-whl python3-pip python3-pipdeptree

pip install astronify
Collecting astronify
  Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement astronify (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for astronify

Astronify is on pypy so it makes sense to perhaps do a apt search on this:-

I found the following package

pypi2deb

apt install pypi2deb has quite a few extra requirements so may take a while

man page for pip also points to

pip search

so tried to do a search for astronify but the package seems to crash,

pip search astronify
Exception:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/_internal/cli/base_command.py", line 143, in main
    status = self.run(options, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/_internal/commands/search.py", line 48, in run
    pypi_hits = self.search(query, options)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/_internal/commands/search.py", line 65, in search
    hits = pypi.search({'name': query, 'summary': query}, 'or')
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xmlrpclib.py", line 1243, in __call__
    return self.__send(self.__name, args)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xmlrpclib.py", line 1602, in __request
    verbose=self.__verbose
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/pip/_internal/download.py", line 791, in request
    return self.parse_response(response.raw)
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xmlrpclib.py", line 1493, in parse_response
    return u.close()
  File "/usr/lib/python2.7/xmlrpclib.py", line 800, in close
    raise Fault(**self._stack[0])
Fault: <Fault -32500: "RuntimeError: PyPI's XMLRPC API has been temporarily disabled due to unmanageable load and will be deprecated in the near future. See https://status.python.org/ for more information.">

So at first glance this may not seem useful, the error is more useful to anyone who understands it. Next step would be to ask on some forums for help.

Back in 2020 I attended a Space Telescope Science Institute lecture on Astronify and wrote a review on this.

I found this as a result of another post on Mastodon earlier today from Khurram Wadee. This is the sonification of the Pillars of creation, within the Eagle Nebula. This nicely illustrates how the research of the Astronify team works.

There is also a video about this nebula here which is interesting.

I have included some related links below, including a link to the Qoto Mastodon instance, and the related Discourse forum where you can discuss a range of STEM topics.

Lots of research going on, which is really exciting. If you want to learn more, the Open University offer courses within the Space Sciences.
