i read a thing recently that blew my mind a little.
went something like:

people can imagine time travel to the past and one little act making massive differences in the timeline

but in their present they think even the greatest effort they can put in will not make any difference to the future

I started writing the first #SpaceTalkTuesday thread about planetary habitability, but quickly realized you all need some background on how we *find* planets first!

So sorry to everyone who voted for habitability, but we’re doing HOW TO FIND AN EXOPLANET 🔭 today!

I promise this will make the habitability thread next week make even more sense (1/)

Here it is. The first picture of the Milky Way's .

Incredible that we can do this.

I'm at that stage where I'm fully in love with my work in progress, discovering the world and people I'm writing about.

Enjoyed the hell out of Dr Strange tonight. Though the third eye is a bit disconcerting.

Today is , the day when music fans' inboxes fill up...

I buy a lot on Bandcamp. You can find my collection here:

My music is mostly on Bandcamp too.

Solo (cello, looping, laptop stuff):

Tangents (post-, many-genred, -tronic, released by Temporary Residence Ltd):

FourPlay String Quartet (perhaps at this stage venerable? Non-classical. Next release will be a full album with Neil Gaiman Himself):

Memory Drawings (hammered dulcimer-led postrock that I've accidentally become a member of):

There'd be more but that'll do?
