ISS visible passes (in Berlin) :
For your specific event: 22:18 near jupiter :
@stsp it was 22:18 CEST and ISS in reality passing just under jupiter, though it actually mismatched slightly with what #stellarium showed, even though using location "Berlin Schoeneberg". https://c1.staticflickr.com/8/7403/9736618588_0a17bb4d1b.jpg
I said something wrong on the internet and @neeels signed up to correct me. Welcome!
@satchmoz In the long term people will cry in disappointment when the company eventually tanks or gets bought and corrupted. But something else will replace it. Alternatives will be able to step in at the right moment.
Meanwhile, grown-up open source projects which have existed much longer mostly still run their own infrastructure, so it's _not_ going to brielfy take out absolutely everything.
Coincidentally spotted the #ISS last night from our roof top. Light from the setting sun in the west illuminated an object moving eastwards across the clear sky at rather incredible speed. At first it looked like a very fast airplane but it had no blinking lights, it was just a single spot of light. A friend noted the current time (18:44) when it had moved past Jupiter which could also be seen, and later looked up the object in #stellarium and confirmed that what we saw was indeed the ISS 😀 🛰 ✨

Related: companies don't have feelings or motives outside of profit. If you encounter a good "company," it's only good because of the people that are forcing it to be good. Change up leadership, and it can become a very different story.
GH doesn't have the best interest of FOSS at heart, it has profit at heart, like every other company. There are likely just people there that care about FOSS, and that leaks into the company's image.

We really need a #failed project #archive in material science or at least #solar energy materials..
Its sad that all my #effort put into investigating a material goes wasted if it doesn't work.
It would be very nice if people are able to #publish their failed stuff and still get due credit...may be such an initiative also help overcome fear of publishing open access bcoz its a failed project..

So what are the plans for this weekend, #Berlin?
It looks like tomorrow there will be thunder and rain ⛈ Looks like we'll mostly stay indoors?
Can we have another protest on Sunday like last week? Failing that, there's outdoor swing at Jockel's Beergarden on Sunday afternoon from 2pm onwards, which should be fun 🙃
