Video: Airports of the World

1 comment:


Here is an updated version of my classic post, "Airports of the World", 2019 edition!

This map was created using over 50,000 airports/runways/helipads. It traces our entire world, with landing sites on all 7 continents, but the map also hints at deeper stories. This map is generated from data provided by ourairports.com

I'm excited to also experiment with data visualization stories (as I built this blog on) with my new(ish) vlog format! Check it out!

I gave a University seminar lecture a few months ago on (I think) perhaps the most amazing discovery from the Kepler mission: Tabby's Star. Here is the full lecture, enjoy!

This undergraduate course, Earth & Space Sciences (ESS) 495, is taught every year and features lectures from scientists across the university working on various earth/space/spaceflight/astrophysics research topics. Students from all majors can get a taste for current cutting edge science topics of research going on throughout the University of Washington - neat!

A fun tradition among astronomers is trying to include the oldest citation possible in your work, especially in your PhD Thesis/dissertation/viva. I love this, as it helps keep our published history alive.

Today I asked Astronomers on Twitter to dig out their PhDs and find their oldest references - I was very impressed with what they reported!

My oldest reference was for the Carrington solar storm (1859), but other people's responses were a fascinating walk through history!

More snow means more days working from home, including two days on video chat for a review panel. Plus I got a new camera lens!

Testing handheld shots with my new Nikon 70-300mm AF-P VR lens, using a D7500 body. I’m so impressed with how much faster and sharper this VR lens is compare with my 12 yr old telephoto junker. Color grading and some stabilization added in DaVinci Resolve - my first video made using this software! Music: David Miner http://bit.ly/2E9J3yr

EPIC SNOW! Well... 6inches is epic for Seattle.... Reflecting on a couple amazing student papers that have been published, burnout post-AAS, and prioritizing family over work. 2019 looks like its going to be a wonderful and challenging year!
