Our selections for this week follow the established rule where a single author is allowed to be featured once every three weeks and posts are arranged in a descending order engagement.
Our top choices
Nothing explains science better by practical experiments. At the top of our selections for this week is this post by @rbalzan79 that practically demonstrate how the pressure of air is decreased as the oxygen content of the air is depleted. A picture is worth more than a thousand words, but in science, an experiment is worth more than a thousand theoretical explanation. Unsurprisingly, the post garnered 7 unique comments to be among the top most engaged posts for this week.
With 7 unique comments as the post above comes this post by @yaziris about the likelihood of the existence of multiple universe. Just imagine that there are several universe that could be similia or dissimilia to the one we are in. Difficult, right? Well, the analogy of eternal inflation with that of a radioactive decay actually gave a bit of credence to the hypothesis. However, we may never know as there is no route to communicate even if there are other universe in existence.
Self medication is something that is generally campaigned against, yet, remains quite popular among humans of different ages, races, and nationality. In this post by @noble-noah, one of the dangers of self medication was highlighted using a real-life experience. It was about a child that was self-medicated, only to later found out that the drug being administered had no correlation with what the diagnosis of the child.
Next is a post that bordering around female genital mutilation. The practice which has long been criminalized by several countries of the world is still popular in some places. The various means and styles used in mutilating this organ was extensively discussed by @nazom, who seems to be making her debut in STEMsocial distilled.
Round off our selections for this week is a post concerning the problem created by advancement in technology. The successful launching of artificial satellites in space is behind some of the technology that we humans are currently enjoying, especially in the area of telecommunication. However, little does many know that these artificial satellites have expiry dates, meaning that our space may be filled with satellite junks with time. Getting rid of these junks may not be as easy as getting the satellites into the orbit in the first place. A good write up by @metabs.
