This new method provides a framework for how to best understand a collection of climate models. The model weights included in this research informed the Fifth National Climate Assessment, a report released on Nov. 14 that gauges the impacts of climate change in the United States. This project also supports the Earth System Grid Federation, an international collaboration led in the U.S. by DOE that manages and provides access to climate models and observed data…”

Katherine Johnson
une calculatrice de la NASA : mathématicienne ayant permis le 1ᵉʳ vol habité américain grâce à ses calculs de mécanique orbitale.

Lorsque la NASA a utilisé pour la 1ʳᵉ fois un ordinateur pour calculer l'orbite de John Glenn autour de la Terre, il avait exigé de faire contre-vérifier les résultats par elle. On ne savait pas encore si la machine et son programme étaient fiables. Mais Katherine Johnson l'était.

✏️ Steve Breen
(San Diego Union Tribune)

dessin montrant Katherine Johnson de dos en train d'écrire des formules sur un tableau noir à la craie blanche... des points blancs font penser aux étoiles, le tableau noir devient une représentation de l'espace. Les calculs montent en diagonale faisant penser à un escalier, sur lequel est représenté un spationaute dans sa combinaison spatiale en train de monter les marches vers le sommet. En haut de cet escalier est représenté la Lune.

What Is The Ogallala Aquifer And Why Is It Running Out Of Water?

"Millions of years ago, sediment from the Rocky Mountains was deposited in the High Plains. Over thousands of years, water dripped below the surface creating an underground water deposit called the Ogallala Aquifer. The water — which spans from South Dakota to Texas and was once the size of Lake Huron — at one point accounted for 30% of the crop and animal production in the U.S…
Although the water source stretches across several states it moves very very slowly. As a result, no interstate compact exists to manage the water in the Ogallala. Instead, neighbors have to band together if they want to restrict pumping…”

Listening to the #Beatles in #spatial audio on #Apple music, the new 2023 masters. I think we've hit the point where it's too clear, and at least for me, that's starting to reveal the flaws in the music. For example, the lead clearly sings "I'll never dance with another", but the others doing the Harmoney are clearly singing "I wouldn't dance with another". If it wasn't for spatial audio on #Sonos I wouldn't hear that at all.

Buried ice will be a vital resource for the first people to set foot on Mars, serving as drinking water and a key ingredient for rocket fuel. But it would also be a major scientific target: Astronauts or robots could one day drill ice cores much as scientists do on Earth, uncovering the climate history of Mars and exploring potential habitats (past or present) for microbial life.…”
