Meet Omo, a one-of-a-kind giraffe who lives at the Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. You might think that she’s albino, but she’s actually leucistic, meaning that her body has reduced amounts of many types of pigment (not just melanin), which simply makes her paler than other giraffes. Wild Nature Institute founder Derek Lee says that Omo is “the only pale giraffe we are currently aware of,” and that her unique coloring might make her an easy target for poachers. We here at @science hope that their anti-poaching measures keep Omo safe so that she can have calves of her own someday and possibly pass this unique genetic mutation along. Fun fact: Omo was named after a brand of laundry detergent. Pretty clever, huh? Photo cred: Derek Lee / Caters News

The ΦTop - Golden Version: spinning things have surprising physics! This unique top is made of solid brass in the shape of a prolate elIipsoid- and the name of the top is derived from the following design requirement: the ratio of the semi minor (short) axis to the semi major (long) axis is made equal to the mathematical constant the golden ratio φ (phi). Invented by astrophysicist Kenneth Brecher, this top stands up vertically (when spun with sufficient rotational velocity) due to physics similar to that of the tippe-top. The concave mirror keeps the top from wandering off and the glass surface has minimal friction allowing the top to spin for a long time- this video shows various stages of 8 minutes of total spin time. ➡️ Follow the link in my profile for info on where to get this top and many other amazing items featured here on @physicsfun #ellipsoid #oblateellipsoid #conicsections #tippetop #torque #angularmomentum #rotationalinertia #physics #physicstoy #flip #flipover #precession #spin #spinning #top #spinningtop #science #scienceisawesome

Two Interacting Galaxies Defying Cosmic Convention - The Hubble Space Telescope has captured a striking view of two interacting galaxies located some 60 million light-years away. They are so close that they are being distorted by the gravitational forces between them, and are twisting themselves into the unusual and unique shapes seen here.

Nella foto vediamo il cosmologo Stephen Hawking con la sua controparte cinematografia, il talentuoso attore Eddie Redmayne. Messi a confronto (nella seconda foto) emerge la straordinaria fedeltà interpretativa utilizzata ne "La teoria del tutto", il toccante film che gli valse l'oscar come miglior attore protagonista nel 2015.

Much fun was had at CinéGlobe with a great bunch of filmmakers. Farewell CERN it's been fun #switzerland #science #cern #filmfestival #cineglobe #newfriends #groupphoto

So Saturday was basically the best day ever because I went to a dinosaur lecture and learned LOADS.
1. The biggest pterosaurs are the size of spitfires
2. Spinosaurus is the biggest theropod, overtaking T Rex. The frond of spines on its back alone are 2 metres long.
3. Velociraptors in Jurassic Park are actually Deinonychus - velociraptors are smaller but sounded better in Hollywood land
4. T Rex arms are the same size as human arms. So we are basically as strong as a T Rex... Now planning a trip to the Isle of Wight to go dinosaur fossil hunting 😍

Normally I would not post the contents of a chat but (a) it goes perfectly with the NUMBER theme (let's just skip over FUN since (i) I just realized I calculated the time difference wrong and (ii) all of my #vietmosolo17 posts are fun) and (b) my mother is being ridiculous. Not crazy Jewish mom. More like crazy HK mom. She wants to change her flight to India from April 4 to April 5 because 4/4 is unlucky in Cantonese (it sounds like the word for death). I had to remind her that, despite living in Hong Kong for over 40 years, she is not actually Cantonese. Also, she's flying to India where 4 is not unlucky. Sigh. It's probably just easier to change her flight than change her outlook on life.

This wonderful image of marine animals come from Adriaen Coenen's Visbook(FishBook), published in 1580.
Coenen gathered all information he could find on sea and its coasts, coastal waters and marine animals, which he described in more than 800 pages. .
