Feedback to Hotjar at iopscience.iop.org Is there anything more we could do

https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1361-6382/ab685e Dear HotJar and IOP Readers, Your questions are too specific. I came here because of a search on Google for gravitational waves software, particularly how the signal on the two arms of each detector is extracted from the single interference strain data. Now your articles are all in text and pictures, so I have

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

Comment on CTBTO web pages – Infrasound and Gravity

CTBTO Webmaster, VDEC contact: I did a screen clip of the page at ctbto.org/specials/vdec/  You can see that it is overlaying text over text.  I highlighted the overlay and could sort of read it.  I found the “here” to find the VDEC application form.  I changed the magnification of the page but that just makes

Comment on Live YouTube video of Meteor echoes

LIVE Radio Meteor Echoes Stream from Scotland Looking at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UaNkjWkpOdE Should it say “MegaHertz”? not “Hz” Just searching for “radio meteor echoes” I see 60 MHz and 50 MHz. 3.5 MHz, 29 MHz, 1300 MHz, 1.98 MHz, 143.05 MHz. Seems like “it depends” but no one has written it down in a concise rule book.

Comment on Houston Astronomical Society Star Parties – Elon Musk All Sky Cameras

Steve and Amelia Goldberg, If Houston Astronomical Society (HAS) would share recordings online, then star parties can be continuous and world wide. Soon, in human terms, there will be people observing from the far side of the moon and from Mars. So I hope Houston Astronomical Society will be a world leader in online community

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

Comment to Astronomical League

I had to try several times to get the LONG captcha code right.  My eyes are really tired and it makes no sense.  Finally realized they were using case sensitive.  It failed because it was more than 1024 characters. Did they tell me there was a limit?  No.  Did they warn me that I went

All sky live cameras for teaching, research and learning to collaborate globally

Luis, Attilla —  Hi Dodie, Gary, I appreciate you looking into this.  I got a separate reply from Attilla Danko offering to help with monitoring and reporting on all sky visibility.  Lenses that see the whole sky will have visible areas on parts of the sky.  I have found live cameras where a few stars

I am a retired mathematical statistician, but I work full time still as Director of the Internet Foundation.  If you want me to bore you to tears about global Internet communities, I am happy to oblige. I have
