Comments to DeltaTech.ca about moving cameras, lossless data, global needs

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXClDkUunDk https://deltatech.ca/contact-us/ I am following the development of live webcams on the Internet, particularly all sky cameras that can be used for research, sharing and collaboration. Weather, astronomy, comets, lightning, clouds – many things. I track all sensor networks as their integration is one of the fastest growing industries on the Internet. You have good

Comment to Allsky Camera Facebook group about context and daytime uses of cameras

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696/permalink/877591389495080/ I am looking at daytime uses of all sky cameras. Satellite images are a bit too bulky and not enough resolution for correlations. Need multiple cameras to recover 3D of clouds. I have seen groups aiming at comets, planes, clouds, rain, sky color, daytime astronomy (is possible), sun and moon tracking, shadows, reflections, multispectral,

Comment on String Data Structures Question – Purpose and Meaning

Strings are just one example of the larger problem of sequences and patterns (any dimensions). This morning, I am just surveying the Internet for rock types and measurements used in geochemistry. There are many methods and representations. Does the student like to explore, to gather, to find general patterns, to share what they have found,

Comment on Fusion Rockets Video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STtXdpD8LtM Neutrons have a permanent magnetic moment and can be accelerated (controlled) by magnetic gradient fields. This included dynamic gradients of many sorts. And nanoscale fields. search “neutron acceleration” and “neutron deceleration” to see people have not ignored the need to control and use neutrons. There are a thousand times that many people working on

Archiving and Sharing lossless sky data for all the people on earth

Dominic, I spoke to Chuck Allen, vice president of the Astronomical League, yesterday — https://www.astroleague.org/al/general/contact.html “The Astronomical League is composed of over two hundred and forty (280 now) local amateur astronomical societies from all across the United States.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astronomical_League (pretty thin description) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_astronomical_societies We talked almost an hour about the growth of Internet sharing (I

Comment on Facebook Allsky Camera group site

https://www.facebook.com/groups/172438633343696 Do you know of even one allsky camera on the Internet that shares live lossless images? And archives lossless images for stacking, research, correlations? The usual photos of stars and planets on the Internet are in jpg, or compressed video, so the pixels are not real pixels. The location and properties of the camera

Gravity Research Foundation Campaign, Gravitational Engineering, Simulating Gravity

Samir, Glad you noticed it.  Most of my messages never get answered or noticed.  I guess they mostly get treated as spam.  I try to not let it bother me. Your paper is online now.  I guess I was in a hurry to read it.  It has a really ugly URL.  It really needs to

Comment on BriTheMathGuy This Sum Amazes Me Every Time – Covid, Internet, Math on the Internet

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGcZDq2bmxM I turn off the sound, turn on the captions, set the speed to one quarter, and don’t look at you gesturing. Plenty of time and fewer distractions. Highly recommend using screen videos. Work out your presentation on the computer, record as you go. Explain the steps and move the pieces around yourself in real

Solar structure and evolution, some notes on a global model of the sun, open and universally accessible on the Internet

Joergen Christensen-Dalsgaard, You have described some of the pieces relevant for study of solar structure and evolution in words, pictures and pictures of equations.  The equations in the PDF are not in portable symbolic mathematical form.  The data from all the steps in the calibration of the model and its variations is not readily available.
