Dr. Jessica Esquivel, Physicist

Thank you Dr. Jessica Esquivel, Physicist for sharing this celebration of #BLACKandSTEM, #WomeninSTEM! https://www.facebook.com/DrEsquivelPhD/videos/261522871789048/

This #JUNETEENTH2020 we celebrate #BLACKandSTEM. This group of Black women in #Physics & #Astronomy give me LIFE. They've made me laugh, given me strength, and hold me in community during this painful moment. We celebrate our strength, our brains, and our "unbothered" attitudes towards those who believe we don't belong in this field. We will not stop pushing in #STEM! We celebrate each-other!

But with the Museum closed, he’s not sure how to help his fellow residents at the Live Animal Care Center, who miss having visitors and educating children. You can send twice the support for the Museum, our Animal Ambassadors, and their hardworking caregivers by making a gift today. Double your impact! mos.org/sciencematters

The coronavirus could not have happened at a worse time I planned a trip up to the museum in April because the museum of science is one of my favorite places and help draw inspiration from my work In fact some ideas I had for my second published book we’re thanks to you in fact some of my best ideas for many of my books came to me when I visit and I hate I won’t visit this year since I was hoping to some of you this
Hello, I would like to start a discussion about why you have not yet cancelled the Museum of Science Girl Scout Overnight this weekend. You are an organization that promotes science in all forms. Yet, as lots of women and girls look to you and wait for leadership, you are continuing to plan an event that puts public health at risk. Girls from all over the greater Boston area will be sharing all kinds of intimate space, brushing teeth, eating, etc. for 16+ hours in a closed environment. In addition to current CDC recommendations, a brief overview of literature reveals: 1. Corona virus is a public health concern (obvious). 2. Social distancing, even if you are healthy, will help to flatten the curve of infection for our healthcare system and for those people who are most vulnerable to getting sick. 3. A giant public event is the exact opposite of social distancing best practices (Biogen, CPAC conferences, MOS). 4. A number of people who have been instructed to self-quarantine have ignored instructions and gone to public events anyway. (Dartmouth, Saint Louis). I am not trying to spread fear. I am trying to spread facts that, if implemented, will help to keep more people healthy and more of our regular lives moving forward. I am also trying to speak up for the well-being of girls and leaders, which I do not feel you are doing at this time. I feel that you are prioritizing this event and its funds over public health, the safety of Girl Scouts, and the ability to lead by making tough decisions based in science. Please consider cancelling the event.
Our family made our pregnancy announcement with you guys yesterday. We had a wonderful time!
I got some ideas for this book on the many times I visit the dinosaur area of the museum of science why I thank you for part of the inspiration I got from here And any of you would like a copy of my book please visit my page

#حلم_الطيران_الى_الفضاء حلم يراودني في صغري ودما احلم ان أطير الى القمر والنجوم والفضاء البعيد حلم ان أعيش. اللاتوازن في الفضاء. وارى الارض من السماء السحيقة وهكذا انا ألج في الكبسولة ابولو ساتيرن 5 ايجل التي طار بها او رجل حط قدمه على سطح القمر انه. نيل أرمسترونغ (بالإنجليزية: Neil Armstrong) (ولد 5 أغسطس 1930، أوهايو - 25 أغسطس 2012) كان رائد فضاء أمريكي وأول شخص يمشي على سطح القمر، حصل على درجة علمية في هندسة الفضاء من جامعة بوردو ثم على الماجستير في هندسة الفضاء أيضًا من جامعة جنوب كاليفورنيا، نشأ البرنامج الأمريكي لاستكشاف القمر خلال فترة إدارة الرئيس آيزنهاور. وفي سلسلة من المقالات التي نُشرت في منتصف الخمسينيات في مجلة كولير، عمم فيرنر فون براون فكرة القيام برحلة مأهولة إلى القمر لإقامة قاعدة على سطح القمر. وفرض الهبوط المأهول على سطح القمر العديد من التحديات التقنية الهائلة أمام الولايات المتحدة واتحاد الجمهوريات الاشتراكية السوفيتية. فعلاوة على التحكم في التوجيه والوزن، كانت إعادة الدخول إلى الغلاف الجوي دون فرط ارتفاع درجة الحرارة التآكلي عقبة رئيسية. وبعد إطلاق الاتحاد السوفيتي للمركبة الفضائية سبوتنيك، روج فون براون لخطة لجيش الولايات المتحدة لإنشاء قاعدة عسكرية على سطح القمر بحلول 1965. وعقب النجاحات السوفيتية المبكرة، لا سيما رحلة يوري جاجارين، بحث الرئيس الأمريكي جون إف كينيدي عن مشروع أمريكي من شأنه أن يأسر خيال الشعب الأمريكي. وطلب من نائب الرئيس ليندون جونسون تقديم توصيات بشأن مساعٍ علمية من شأنها أن تؤكد الريادة العالمية للولايات المتحدة. وتضمنت المقترحات خيارات غير فضائية مثل إقامة مشروعات ري هائلة لصالح العالم الثالث. وفي ذلك الوقت، كان السوفييت يمتلكون صواريخ أكثر قوة من صواريخ الولايات المتحدة، الأمر الذي منحهم ميزة في بعض أنواع بعثات السباق. وانا في داخل الكبسولة سايترون ٥ كنت احلم بالطيران ولكن في خظم الحلم ان لا احلام في العراق ستصطدم بعوائق. كثيرة اولها يمعود ليش مدوخ نفسك القمر أمامك شاهده كل يوم
