This Biology Teacher Disproved Transphobia With Science 


Sex redefined

“The idea of two sexes is simplistic. Biologists now think there is a wider spectrum than that.”

More on anti-trans arguments as bad science

Lese ein sehr nettes Buch ueber das Training von Astronauten

In Kanada trainieren Kandidaten, sich unter Zeitdruck aus brennenden Kapseln zu befreien oder aus hoher Hoehe zu fallen, und man schaut wer sich wie verhaelt.

In Japan gibt man Kandidaten die Aufgabe, unter Zeitdruck Origami-Kraniche zu falten, bittet sie, mit Buntstiften die Kollegen zu zeichen und laesst in der Simulationsumgebung die Toilette ausfallen (ob sie das dann wirklich getan haben weiss ich noch nicht).
Kein Wunder dass uns die Japaner technologisch voraus sind, sie haben verstanden worauf es ankommt (in Space):
um das Ertragen von langen Zeitraeumen von Langeweile und um hohe soziale Kompetenzen in Gruppen.

Lautes Schnarchen ist uebrigens ein Ausschlussgrund.

Sehr nettes Buch (nett in einem positiven Sinn):
Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void, by Mary Roach

We’re used to radiation being invisible. With a Geiger counter, it gets turned into audible clicks. What you see above, though, is radiation’s effects made visible in a cloud chamber. In the center hangs a chunk of radioactive uranium, spitting out alpha and beta particles. The chamber also has a reservoir of alcohol and a floor cooled to -40 degrees Celsius. This generates a supersaturated cloud of alcohol vapor. When the uranium spits out a particle, it zips through the vapor, colliding with atoms and ionizing them. Those now-charged ions serve as nuclei for the vapor, which condenses into droplets that reveal the path of the particle. The characteristics of the trails are distinct to the type of decay particle that created them. In fact, both the positron and muon were first discovered in cloud chambers!
