Great alternatives to Google Maps that use #OpenStreetMap data:

- Qwant Maps: website, has directions. Highlights the fact that data is from #OSM, providing links to view and edit the data.
qwant.com/maps
- F4map: website, 3D views of cities.
demo.f4map.com/
- MAPS.ME: mobile apps with a neat vector renderer. Minimalist. Works offline. More obviously profit-oriented.
- OsmAnd: mobile apps with lots of features. Offline too. (Too?) many customisations and options available.

honestly people rightfully talk about how bad American science education is but one thing people don't often talk about is that we don't teach how to read scientific papers. they're a weird form that's not intended to be read linearly or really like any other piece of writing and it's not something I ever felt really comfortable with until multiple years of grad school

Comet Neowise is passing through our solar system. It is visible to the naked eye throughout July. A pair of binoculars will make it even easier to see.

Comet Neowise won’t be back in our part of the stellar neighborhood for another 4,500 years. I wonder who will be around to see it then.

If you want you see it, get a hold of the excellent software Stellarium (it’s free) and do a search for “neowise”. The software will show you where it is, relative to your location.

This is the Setun computer

It was developed in 1958 at Moscow State University

It used ternary logic with a balanced ternary numeral system (which is to say, -1, 0, 1)

basically: NON BINARY COMPUTER FOR NONBINARY DAY! :flag_nonbinary:
