Another milestone reached, stuff I wrote for a wonderful magazine, and NASA snaps a shot of an Indian spacecraft sitting on the lunar surface.
Congrats on 20k subscribers!
Your article on satellite watching reminded me of a week ago when I was watching an evening performance of the local Shakespeare troupe in the park and as the sun set, I had a hard time concentrating on the play as the satellites streaming into view overhead kept pulling my attention skyward (apologies to Shakespeare and the wonderful actors of that play!) I avoided pulling out my phone to figure out what each one was, at least :)
Oh...I noticed in your SciAm byline it still points to Twitter as a spot where readers can follow you. I know you recently decided to stop using Twitter but didn't know if this was a reference that slipped through the cracks so I figured I would mention it
Yeah! Congrats! 20 kilosubs!
Hooray on 20k, Phil! Huge congratulations, that is an epic achievement.
(*shakes fist* I'm just 250 subs behind you! But of course it's not a race. Although if *I* was ahead of *you*, it'd definitely be a race. But it isn't, is my point. Nope.)
Wow! Congratulations on both the milestone and the opinion piece. That Scientific American essay was well written and powerful!
Just back from your SciAm articles, nice. We just finished a few days of ISS passes. Fun to watch it blink out as it enters Earth’s shadow. Never really though about the color change at that point--have to be more observant.
20k subscribers is a good start on 100k. Ought to be in the millions, IMHO.
Just watching the wrap up of the SciStarter Zoom. Great job Phil. Your knowledge and excitement added much. Must have been many participants because just about every website mentioned was impossible to reach. I’m just going to have to pick one of these to try!
