This episode of the Reply All podcast is an excellent introduction to the rise of QAnon. It delves into the fascinating history of 8chan and the initial Qanon posts, and offers substantial speculation about who is likely behind the dumbest of conspiracy theories.
For once, there’s something I agree with Joe Biden about.
Well played, sir.
A Reddit user posted their excellent custom Lego creation crossing Star Wars with Scooby-Doo! to create what the designer calls “Scooby and Shaggy’s X-Wing.” I think The Mystery Machine X-Wing is also catchy.
An image of Jupiter taken by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope in ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared light on Aug. 25, 2020, is giving researchers an entirely new view of the giant planet and offers insights into the altitude and distribution of the planet’s haze and particles. This complements Hubble’s visible-light pictures that show the ever-changing cloud patterns. In this photo, the parts of Jupiter’s atmosphere that are at higher altitude, especially over the poles, look red from atmospheric particles absorbing ultraviolet light. Conversely, the blue-hued areas represent the ultraviolet light being reflected off the planet. A new storm at upper left, which erupted on Aug. 18, 2020, is grabbing the attention of scientists in this image. The “clumps” trailing the white plume appear to be absorbing ultraviolet light, similar to the center of the Great Red Spot, and Red Spot Jr. directly below it. This provides researchers with more evidence that this storm may last longer on Jupiter than most storms.
There needs to be an entire line of Twilight Zone Lego sets.
