The #BrassBand of the Government of #Tuva, on ice! (Духовой оркестр правительства Тувы) https://peertube.social/videos/watch/f1032689-5cf6-4037-95d5-24d550fda697
Are we all aware of this superconducting magnet safety training video, produced by GE in (I'm guessing) the 90s? It starts with actors dramatizing magnet safety disasters, and gets so, so good at the five-minute mark.
#FridayPhysicsPhotos Assembling and inspecting a copper, 200 MHz resonant cavity in a clean room. Ship in a bottle: the cavity and all its instrumentation & control needs to live inside a vacuum vessel. Those six aluminum "spokes" squeeze the cavity to tune its frequency.
Just now noticing the resemblance with this #Kraftwerk album cover. Wir fahren fahren fahren auf der Protonbahn, I guess?

The arc is the horizon. The specs are dust on the lens cover.
My first picture on #Mars! My lens cover isn’t off yet, but I just had to show you a first look at my new home. More status updates:
The InSight #Mars lander is landing! Here's the live feed:
Happy Thanksgiving. I know these stunts are old-hat now, but I still laughed at "Pie Pee Pie".
h/t to @carl for sharing this. <hug>Stallman</hug>
#imagemagick is even crazier/omni than I thought.
Running this command converts mouse pointer into a crosshair cursor which can be used for selecting any area of screen and take screenshot of that part.
Job opportunity at Fermilab in the Target Systems Department! We're looking for an Associate Scientist-level person to help with high-power proton beam target development/operation. https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/12533
#FridayPhysicsPhotos Our surplus depot has this big, beautiful magnet that we rescued. But when we looked at the inventory description ... Well, "stainless steel tank, etc." is technically correct? But also maybe describes the entire LHC?
#introductions Hi everyone! I'm a physicist looking for dark matter. And also, evidently, a better social media site.
Working hard to build particle accelerators, find dark matter, and keep my cool. He/him.
