I'm an who plays in her free
time...and when I should be doing other things. This tabletop.social account will mirror my Twitter account; the mirror is run by @akuchling .

I have a YouTube channel, Cosmic Game Connections, which connects the world of astronomy to the games on my shelf in unexpected ways. And I at meeplephd.com where I post short game reviews and blog entries to accompany my .

This is quite a loss for astronomy. The only bright spot is that no one was hurt in the collapse.

I’d call this more of a “slow dance,” then.

RT @NASAUniverse@twitter.com

Right now, our Milky Way galaxy is in the middle of a dance with our nearest large neighbor galaxy, Andromeda, which will result in their merger in about 4 billion years. The view could be spectacular. 🌃

In blinding darkness, two monsters collide. ⚫️⚫️
In the moment before black holes merge, they produce more power than all the stars in the universe combined, but without any light! Despite this stealth, detectors like @LIGO@twitter.com and @ego_virgo@twitter.com can sense them in the dark.

✨ By surveying the 200,000 nearest stars for planets, NASA’s TESS is setting us up for some amazing follow-up observations by telescopes like Webb. 📹 In my latest I share what we might learn in the future, and how it connects to my game shelf. youtu.be/G47iGwWoOqg

This cool video from @symmetrymag@twitter.com shares in such a quick, fun way some of the properties of the hard-to-catch neutrino! Check it out: youtu.be/2iGVa67Z8G0

🛰️ Earlier this year, NASA’s TESS announced it’s first discovery of an Earth-sized planet orbiting within its star’s habitable zone. 📹 Check out my latest for more about this discovery and how I connected it to my game shelf: youtu.be/G47iGwWoOqg
