This is the first post of a new weekly feature produced by Decoded Everything/Decoded Science
In this feature, your Decoded editors and experts will present happenings in Science around the Globe, as well as new initiatives here at Decoded.
You may have noticed that we had an Ask the Expert question this week.
In this article, Dr. Heckert discusses the impact of Archimedes’ Principle on helium balloons.
Physics isn’t everyone’s strong point, but with Dr. Paul Heckert’s expert insights, even the confusing becomes clear!
Weather and Geology
Geoscientist Jennifer Young published an update of Earthquakes This Week – featuring explorations into Turkey, Papua New Guinea, and Alaskan tremors. Fascinating, as always!
Meteorologist Jon Plotkin offered an update of Weather Around the World – Temperature records are breaking and glaciers are melting – how does that affect the weather?
Biologist Kristine Tome gave us insight into symmetrization, reorganization, and self-healing among sea life – particularly the Moon Jellyfish.
We have another Ask the Expert article in the works, sponsored by Decoded Supporter Tel Asiado of the Inspired Pen – thanks, Tel!
Also, an article on the Genetic drive of Mosquitos, among others!
Upcoming New Initiatives
Decoded Experts & Editors are considering creating online courses on a number of topics. This is a huge initiative for us, and we’re really excited to explore this new realm! Details to follow as we move forward.
Notes From Our Experts:
“I’m presently working on a number of projects for Decoded — doing research on projects is a quiet endeavor; the markers of accomplishment are not easily delineated.
However, I expect to have a new article tying physical chemistry with the cooking of spaghetti and rice finished by the end of the week.
Non-Decoded projects include looking for a new place, and getting over an extremely nasty cold.”
