General astronomy[edit]

  • Don't see the difference with synchrotron radiation. This paper differentiates the two as "Gyrosynchrotron radiation is the electromagnetic emission generated by mildly relativistic electrons moving in a magnetic field, while the term synchrotron radiation is used to describe the emission from ultarelativitic electrons", but most sources I found define synchrotron radiation as just relativistic. Maybe a historical shift in definition? I'm inclined to redirect but maybe an expert can chime in. Xingyzt (talk  |  contribs) 14:59, 6 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I do, they are quite different (OED sources) [13] [14] @Xingyzt TheTopRocketFan (talk) 23:38, 28 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Your first definition is of synchrotrons, not their radiation. Xingyzt (talk  |  contribs) 23:41, 28 July 2023 (UTC)[reply]
  • These are generally sonification of radar and other non-acoustic signals. Some clarification may be helpful but don't think it deserves its own page. Xingyzt (talk  |  contribs) 14:38, 6 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Solar and stellar astronomy[edit]

Individual Objects and Groups[edit]

NGC Objects[edit]

Based upon the availability of published scientific studies, the following New General Catalogue deep sky objects are likely to satisfy the WP:GNG criteria:

c. Cluster; n. Nebula

 Comment: Turkish Wikipedia has all of the NGC objects. tr:Kategori:NGC cisimleri --Evolutionoftheuniverse (talk) 14:50, 17 June 2016 (UTC)[reply]

I think quite a few language Wikipedias have all of them as well. Alpha Piscis Austrini (talk) 18:21, 14 April 2022 (UTC)[reply]
Can we get someone who can translate those article to English? PrathuCoder (talk) 06:28, 6 February 2023 (UTC)[reply]
I'll be working on this list now, starting with NGG 855. Bear with me. Galaxyfriend (talk) 20:40, 5 November 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Well, that's nice. Good luck! PrathuCoder (talk) 23:20, 7 January 2024 (UTC)[reply]

Scientists and people in science[edit]

  • George L. King Senior Investigator and Chief Scientific Officer; Section Head, Vascular Cell Biology; Director, Asian American Diabetes Initiative; Thomas J. Beatson, Jr. Professor of Medicine in the Field of Diabetes, Harvard Medical School [74] (date requested: June 12, 2023)
  • Mikayel G. Melkumyan (Dr. Mikayel Melkumyan is an Armenian earthquake engineer who has dedicated himself to strengthening the buildings across Armenia and the world against devastating earthquakes. Through his research work he has created the Melkumyan Model, a hysteresis model that models the shear behavior of rigid reinforced concrete structures. He has reconstructed multiple buildings in Armenia and his technologies are being used in various countries. His work put Armenia second in the world after Japan for most seismically isolated buildings per capita. Dr. Mikayel Melkumyan is a distinguished professor and academic, with memberships in various scientific societies and associations.[75] [76] [77] [78] [79] [80] [81] [82] [83] [84]

Rodgers (Dr Clive Rodgers BA, PhD Cantab is an Atmospheric Physicist who won the symons gold medal, The Society’s awards for excellence in meteorology are held in high regard across the international community. With a BA in Maths and Physics, University of Cambridge. PhD, Cambridge. Reader in Physics at Oxford until 2001, now retired but still research active. Radiative transfer, molecular spectroscopy, the application of estimation theory to the inverse problem of radiative transfer, and the application of satellite data to stratospheric and mesospheric dynamics and chemistry. Has been Co-Investigator on several Oxford satellite instruments, and most recently on two instruments flying on NASA's Aura satellite of the Earth Observing System, the High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (Oxford and NCAR) and the Tropospheric Emission Sounder (JPL).)

  • Mathieu Lapôtre (Planetary geologist, Assistant Professor in Geological Sciences at Stanford University. Discovered a new type of ripples on Mars. Was part of the science team that operates NASA's Curiosity rover. Is interested in geological processes that shape the surfaces of planets and how they vary from planet to planet. He also has interests in the geology of the Earth before complex life evolved. He has published over 30 papers including in Science, Nature, Nature Geoscience, and Nature Reviews Earth & Environment.

President, International Society of Addiction Journal Editors. Associate Editor, Journal of the American Medical Association. Editor-in-Chief Journal of Addiction Medicine. Leading international scientist and research expert in screening and brief intervention for alcohol and other drug use, integrated care -addiction and general health-, expert at the intersection of people with unhealthy alcohol and other drug use and general health care. Advocate for the use of accurate non-stigmatizing terminology in the field of addiction. Research on HIV and alcohol, alcohol use disorder treatment effectiveness, on screening and brief counseling, and on unhealthy substance use as a health risk and condition, not a moral problem. In 2005 coined the term unhealthy alcohol use, which includes the full spectrum of risky use through disorder. Critical of research that concludes and assumes with inadequate methodology that low - moderate - alcohol use has health benefits.
