Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

RT @emilio__ferrara@twitter.com

Absence of observation, and even unobservability, are often sold as “absence of effect”, which is the single most important and undervalued explanation to the mess we live in wrt misinformation in public health, and conspiracy theories these days. twitter.com/emilio__ferrara/st

What strikes me is the utter lack of public enthusiasm for the billionaire space race. For most working people, NASA (a public institution) felt like we were going forward together. This feels like we’re being left behind. twitter.com/business/status/14

Lots of snarky comments about this, but I wonder how many people realize the ridiculously large number of viruses that are out there, the vast majority of which cannot infect humans.

Ancient viruses were found frozen in two ice samples taken from the Tibetan Plateau in China – and most of them are unlike anything ever seen before. usatoday.com/story/news/world/

Wild that it was easier for Jeff Bezos to get into space than into Queens.

No matter which party is in power, the government cannot be trusted to label 'truth' or 'fiction' any more than Facebook or Twitter can.

Remember when then-President Trump claimed COVID would just 'go away' without a vaccine? cnn.com/2021/07/20/politics/wh

Australien und USA hatten angeblich kein "eigenes Volk".

Er meinte natürlich kein "genuines" Volk. Die ursprüngliche Bevölkerung bestand nicht aus echten Menschen.

So kann man auch verstehen, was er mit "Genuin deutsches Volk" meint.

Reminds me when Neil Armstrong predicted, correctly, that privately driven space exploration will be "a long downward slide to mediocrity."

Over 60 years ago Yuri Gagarin completed an orbit of the Earth reaching an altitude of 320Km without the help of supercomputers or advanced materials. Today, sociopath Bezos is being hailed for reaching an altitude of 100Km for a few sec in a penis shaped vehicle. WTF!

When a fellow physics PhD student started reviewing journal papers, he was so appalled by their quality that he asked @APSphysics@twitter.com if he was on a list for reviewing exclusively very bad papers.

He'd seen the classics; now he was facing the nonsense that is academic publishing.

I am glad to see this. 9 out of 10 quantum computing researchers will agree with the sentiments in private, but they usually find it best not to do so publicly.
