Link 15 Jul We Know Physics is Largely White and Male, But Exactly How White and Male is Still Striking»

- In the entire United States, of the thousands and thousands of college physics and astronomy faculty, only 75 are African American or Hispanic women…

- [W]omen’s science organizations are overwhelmingly white, and the minority science organizations, overwhelmingly male.”

Lightning Appreciation Post:

  • There are nearly 500 lightning strikes every second around the world.
  • Only about 100 of these strike the earth, the others are between and within the clouds themselves.
  • Lightning is very visible from space (last gif from Astronaut Reid Wiseman)
  • Besides regular storms (thunder storms, hurricanes, etc.) lightning can be found in volcanoes (gif 3) and even intense forest fires.

In conclusion: nature is fucking awesome!

OMFG

Mitchell Moffit (@mitchellmoffit) and Gregory Brown (@whalewatchmeplz) are the dynamic duo responsible for the beautifully animated webisodes brought to you via ASAPScience.

In their most recent video, they provide a break from the normal awesomeness and address the hateful commentary they continuously receive regarding their sexuality, providing an insightful glimpse into the gender stereotypes/bias and sexism still being perpetuated throughout our society.

Mitch and Greg are amazing. So impressed that they made this video yet so sad that they had to.

I’ve got your back, guys. We all do.

Science and technology are just SO SOOOO under-reprensented in Pink List!
