It turns out, mapping the galaxy is a much more difficult job than anticipated, but using the light from Cepheid variable stars, which are stars that brighten and dim according to their size, we can pretty accurately tell distance. By using these stars, we can build a map of the distribution of stars in our galaxy...

So here's a 3D map of Cepheid variable stars, in our very own Milky Way galaxy, released in a survey done back in February. It reveals that the Milky Way isn't as flat as we thought, but rather a little bit warped or twisted. Although rare, it's far from unheard of to see a spiral galaxy with a wobble to it, and quite apparently our galaxy is among them.

Our galaxy is not flat, which means that a whole lot of art is out of date.

We don't know yet what caused the warping effect, could be a recent interaction or collision with another galaxy or even dark matter. At this point, it's still to early to tell.

Downloaded Optifine and @maple's shaders - github.com/Lana-chan/maples-re - and wandered about my usual Minecraft world a little bit looking at things.

It's really freaking fun. I love how cobblestone looks.

In case you missed it, there's a privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play.

It's called F-Droid and only includes free open apps that don't track you:

switching.social/ethical-alter

The installation process is slightly complicated, but once it's been installed it's extremely easy to use.

You can also follow F-Droid on here at:

@noelle the lesson learned is that with software it's actually harder to figure out how to sell limitations than it is to make something that works

For anyone who wants high-quality, open-source, self-hostable event coordination software, check out gath.io (repo at github.com/lowercasename/gathi).

It doesn't require an account, does everything with email and link-capability security, and autodeletes events 2 days after they're over, and it looks really beautiful.

No need to use Facebook for this anymore!
