Last month had some small and rather cute Ph-news. Read about them here.
In personal news, all the hours I spend on Google Flights at least turned into something useful, as I found very cheap weekend tickets to Milano. Combined with a free night I had from hotel booking sites, this helped materialize the greek expression “I’ll hop to Europe for a coffee”. (Fun cultural fact: western Europe is often called “Europe” in Greece; looking at a map can start explaining why.) Milano gave me the impression of a pleasant place to live at.
Still in personal news, I spent a week half-down with covid-19. I think I caught it during a date that didn’t turn into anything but, hey, it helped get over with this and now have both vaccination and recovery certificates.
Finally, let me bid you goodbye till next month with two nerdy links:
- “Radio waves from Earth have reached dozens of stars” (oh, the possibilities)
- The United States post office issued a series of stamps in honor of NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory (as seen below).
