#33. Meteors

Last edited on 2023-09-29 Tagged under  #space 

Here are this week's 3 links worth exploring:

  1. A "Meteor Project" series of tutorial videos that will use Python to download meteor data, construct an astro-dynamics database, and look for patterns in the behaviour of meteors. This will enable us to derive our own scientific conclusions from observations of the data:

  2. Interactive visualization of meteoroid streams orbiting the Sun, with orbits based on those measured by NASA and calculated by the SETI Institute:

  3. Scott Tilley is a satellite hunter, and on Wednesday, October 18 he will be hosting an online discussion about what he has learned seeking out objects in orbit, especially the long-lost and intentionally hidden:

Quote of the Week: "I think it’s part of the nature of man to start with romance and build to a reality ... We need this thing which makes us sit bolt upright ... and say, ‘I want to go out and devour the world, I want to do these things.’ ... We find, we push the edge of science forward, and I think we romance on beyond that into the universe ever beyond." — Ray Bradbury

Onward!
