In my graduate plasma physics class, I was the only one that understood the term “flute instability”. Now, every time I make pie, I think of how I confused everyone in that class when I answered the professors question: “Fluting is what you do to the edges of pie”. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interchange_instability

Our “Build A Radar” edX class is live! The site has video lectures on basic Radar concepts and walks through a build of a 2.5 GHz Radar. https://llx.mit.edu/courses/course-v1:MITLL+MITLLx01+Q2_2019/about

Happy \(\pi\) day, Mathstodon! #piday
This is MPAR ATD, a phased array antenna installed at The National Severe Storms Lab in Norman, OK. Each stitch is an antenna in the array, 4,864 total. Each 8x8 section outlined in black is a stand-alone panel that can be swapped out. Phased arrays are cool 🤓 #Radar #crossStitch #science #art #hiddenRainbow
Update on my Halloween #CrossStitch: It was working for a hot second, before I snapped a wire while programming the 0603 LED to look like it was flickering because SPOOKY. Soldering is hard; those bats still need creepy red glowing eyes.
