I remember as a kid I read a science fiction book about a Mercury colony which slowly traveled around the planet to stay perpetually in the dusk (or dawn). No idea what the plot was, but that setting really stuck with me.

It's #FibonacciFriday#FF ! Though there's no evidence Leonardo of Pisa (Fibonacci) had any original mathematical ideas whatsoever, people attribute lots of 12th-13th century math to him because he was wealthy and European enough to leave a paper trail.

If you ever wondered what an entire year's worth of titles looks all laid out at once... here you go! These are all the books we released in 2019 (minus our Tyndall series), laid out in no particular order. pic.twitter.com/Aulo3DsPNL

If 1024 fair coins are each tossed 10 times, chances are good (> 63%) that at least one will come up heads 10 times in a row; and that coin will be proud to explain how its skill, faith, guts & determination made its achievement possible, and how that combo can work for you too.
Thanks so much Jason! Since @F1000Research’s conception, Vitek has been adamant that he would only ever sell to an organisation that he is convinced is fully committed to maintaining our vision, supporting us to scale up and also to ultimately transform the whole industry.

How is a 'Mars invasion' a 'science event'? Framed as a collective 'exploration', I would have been very enthusiastic. I am not exactly overjoyed by the prospect of a competition for the colonial-style appropriation of a neighbouring planet by a bunch of different countries. https://t.co/nuRBJOXOy5

This looks fascinating! When I was writing about similar things with corn syrup ("glucose") in the US, I got a lot out of Kathleen Mapes, Sweet Tyranny, on those racial dynamics. I wish I'd had your article too.

Historian of economic thought with a particular focus on Hayek, neoliberalism, and imperialism.
I think you're being flippant as to the potential scale of the problem. NO ONE has been to Versailles since the French Revolution. Even the German panzer divisions gave it a swerve in 1940 for fear of their tank tracks becoming entangled in the overgrown shrubberies. https://t.co/znDyZ4Vsq0

The concept of the human has a history! Not only is this a history about how 'human' has been defined in terms of geography (and gender, socio-economic class etc. in practical terms), but also what a 'human' is in geological time & lucky breaks. #monstershttps://t.co/njt4PNDS0r

Historian of the environment and science. I research nature conservation, the concept of the sea level, and the prehistory fo the Anthropocene.
I’ve been out of the racket for a couple years now and did not notice any difference at all. But I must admit I’ve always been wary of uploading anything I wasn’t 100% sure I could offer openly on any of those, so maybe people just did nit find anything useful on my accounts.

A esquerda brasileira consegue ver heróis no Irã de Khamenei e na Venezuela de Maduro. É uma forma torpe de mostrar indignação com o que há de pior na política externa americana, e torna incoerente a defesa da liberdade de expressão e dos direitos humanos aqui mesmo, no Brasil.

uh, there's no bike lane? so how is it "Dutch-style"? if the point of the roundabout is just to bring a tiny bit of order to an absurdist road system (and not to accommodate cyclists) then maybe it's a Belgian-style roundabout. nice example (Rue Georges Simenon!) from Liège below pic.twitter.com/2kbjH8CsMf
