All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” Ernest Hemingway, born #OnThisDay in 1899, is one of the world's most influential writers. https://twitter.com/NobelPrize/status/1020568062196625409/photo/1
2018-07-20T19:11:32Z via NavierStokes To: PublicA lovely night at #CERN (I mean, after all the rain and hail). https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1020384003277324294/photo/1
2018-07-20T07:21:16Z via NavierStokes To: PublicIt's the anniversary of the first time a human being landed on the moon. Sending humans beyond earth was an amazing scientific and engineering achievement, an inspiration to people at home and abroad. May science continue to light the way in a dimming world. https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1020204489352122368/photo/1
2018-07-19T14:21:46Z via NavierStokes To: PublicThis has been the last 24 hours at #CERN. At one point, I was convinced that creating an actual "murder board" complete with pins and string would be necessary to understand some code... https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1019949806368718848/photo/1
2018-07-19T12:32:50Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom ATLASexperiment on Twitter: [ATLAS News] ATLAS revealed key results at #ICHEP2018, including major developments in the measurement of Higgs boson properties, observations of key electroweak production processes and new high-precision tests of the Standard Model.

2018-07-17T09:12:21Z via NavierStokes To: PublicHaunting bit of concept art. Finally had a chance to watch last week's NSF announcement of the #MultimessengerAstronomy observation. Wished I could have been there to ask 50 questions. Disappointed more local science press did not. https://twitter.com/apod/status/1018880506115608578
2018-07-16T22:11:46Z via NavierStokes To: PublicHeading to #CERN again tonight by way of London. Walking DFW Terminal D before my flight to get some exercise. I choose to believe these are @SMU Mustangs on the floor mural. #PonyUp (also, #PonyDown, #PonyStrange, #PonyCharm, #PonyBottom, and #PonyTop) https://twitter.com/drsekula/status/1018979818761805824/photo/1
2018-07-16T01:30:56Z via NavierStokes To: Public... time to go to #CERN. Sorry, @profcooley. https://twitter.com/wfaa/status/1018667810933870592

2018-07-14T14:52:17Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom Nigel_Lockyer on Twitter: What tastes better? Ice cream made with liquid nitrogen or liquid argon. Physicists will know this may be flavor dependent. https://twitter.com/Nigel_Lockyer/status/1017514219548356608/photo/1
2018-07-14T00:01:48Z via NavierStokes To: PublicIt was an accomplishment fueled by an incredible @ATLASexperiment team and collaboration, fantastic data from the #LHC, and, as always, hard work. Happy @SMU could play a part in this chapter. #Higgs #bquark https://twitter.com/SMUDedman/status/1017881788155420673
2018-07-13T17:21:56Z via NavierStokes To: PublicFrom Nigel_Lockyer on Twitter: Francis Halzen discusses how ICE CUBE data miners found a dozen neutrinos from the same BLAZAR where they found the single multi-hundred TEV neutrino that points to a flaring galaxy 4 billion lights years away. https://twitter.com/Nigel_Lockyer/status/1017452201147498496/photo/1
2018-07-13T13:53:25Z via NavierStokes To: PublicLearn more about the awesome and ubiquitous neutrino from @PBS @novapbs "The Ghost Particle": http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/neutrino/ Available from streaming services, but the articles on the above page are excellent reading on the subject. #MultimessengerAstronomy
2018-07-13T13:53:24Z via NavierStokes To: PublicJust over a year ago @SMU welcomed @uw_icecube physicist + @UWMadison professor Francis Halzen to share the context, vision, and history of neutrino telescopes with us and receive an honorary degree from SMU. Yesterday, #IceCube achieved a new milestone! #MultimessengerAstronomy https://twitter.com/SMUPhysics/status/865347839723008001
2018-07-13T12:03:40Z via NavierStokes To: PublicI love papers with big discoveries and unassuming titles. Today, celebrate Anderson and Neddermeyer seeing the muon in light of #IceCube’s big detection of the origin of some high energy neutrinos: Phys.
