your response to the microwave post was really good, but there were a few mistakes i'd like to point out! DNA is not a "jumble of protein", DNA is a macromolecule like proteins but fundamentally different because DNA is composed of nitrogenated bases while proteins are composed of aminoacids. also your body does care about dna in food, because it breaks it down into the smaller components and absorbs it to use to make its own DNA (although its not essencial).

dear everyone riding my ass about calling DNA a protein in the microwave postthe microwave post: I actually corrected the original a long time ago, which I guess doesn’t show up in reblogs made before then

In ISRO’s Bangalore control room, women scientists in colourful saris hug each other after spacecraft Mangalyaan makes it to Mars orbit. The image sparked reactions and debate across the Internet. Photo by Manjunath Kiran.

ISRO (Indian Space Research Organization) made history with its successful first-ever Mars orbiter mission. It came in at a cool $74 million—a fraction of recent NASA projects.

By the way, Mangalyaan is on Twitter and chatting with fellow spacecraft Voyager, because this is how we live now.

Thai author Benjanun Sriduangkaew was nominated for this year’s Campbell Award for Best New Writer, which is for authors who first got published in the last two years. As she debuted two years ago (Expanded Horizons, "Chang’e Dashes From the Moon"), she won’t be eligible next year. However, I’d be awfully surprised if she doesn’t show up in the shortlists for other categories! Here’s her novelette “Courtship in the Country of Machine-Gods”.

In the shadow of machine–gods I tell wayfarers of a time when my people were a nightmare the color of hemorrhage and glinting teeth.
There are other narratives, but this is the one they want to hear most…

Thank you so much! I hope this is not seen as butting in rudely, but I’m actually eligible for one more year for the Campbell ballot. C: (My 2012 publications were ones that didn’t qualify me for Campbell eligibility, so my eligibility started in 2013).

omg I didn’t know you were on Tumblr! Correction duly noted. NOMINATE AWAY, KIDS
