Welcome to the 60th issue of SteemSTEM Distilled, a curation effort by the members of the @steemstem team.
SteemSTEM aims to make Steem a better place for STEM, a task which we believe crucial for the long-term development of the blockchain. Our goals consist in invigorating and inspiring the minds of a community of STEM aficionados on Steem, targeting on the long-term the upgrade of SteemSTEM as a real platform for science communication. In the meantime, this goes through the support of quality, interesting and cutting-edge STEM content.
In order to support the best STEM content on Steem, our team scours the blockchain and read more than a couple of thousands of STEM-related posts per week. We hence support about 200 of these posts, and present in this distilled our top 8 handpicked choices for the last Thursday-Sunday period.
The Mystery of the Missing Antimatter - an Introduction to CPT Symmetry. (Particle Physics Series – Episode 4C)
A brilliant particle physics post by @muphy is here to open our week! Matter, antimatter and CPT symmetry are being discussed here, read on to learn more!
An "environmentally friendly" post by @ibk-gabriel discusses an evolutionary technique that uses a fungi's mycellium to create alternative plastic. To find out more, read his interesting post!
Our @abigail-dantes is here with a beautiful psychology post that tries to "marry" the relationship between the famous sheep, Shaun and his farmer, with that of a couple's. Another magnificent piece you are surely going to love!
A topic that for some is a taboo is discussed here by @conficker: prostitution. Legalizing sex services and allowing sex workers to receive proper health care is not only of critical importance for their well-being, but their customers as well. That is another post you shouldn't miss!
@herbayomi has done an amazing work in this post that discusses the response of the immune system once microbes make it into our body through food or drinks. A post that deserves a careful read!
Who Says You Cannot Make your Own Airplane? Series #3: Understanding How Jet Engines Work And Effect Of Atmosphere In Flight
Flight mechanics for our next pick and @teekingtv has explained very well the function of jet engines and how the atmosphere effects flight. For more details you need to click on that link!
A farming post more unusual than the others is here by @humbledeen. Farming on Mars, the limitations and how we can overcome them are beautifully presented in this post!
We saved a wonderful technology post for last, @henrychidiebere talks about digital logic and how essential it is for today's technology. We do recommend you read this one!
For some time, the editorial team behind this distilled series is made of a one-woman-team, @ruth-girl, and she chooses her favorite posts (potentially discussing with other curators and/or the management). Posts written by the SteemSTEM team are excluded from the nomination process.
Please do not be discouraged if you did not make it on this issue. We are picking up in total 14 posts a week out of more than 200. The chances are thus low ;) In the meantime, you may wish to check these guidelines for extra tips on how your writing could be more effective.
In the spirit of being transparent about our actions that are now supported by @utopian-io, @curie, our delegators, our trailers and our manual curator supporters, we release every week the list of authors who have caught the attention of the @steemstem curation team.
From June 10 to June 17, we rewarded 151 different authors who have written a total of 204 different articles. The 126 authors who received votes from @steemstem, @utopian-io and @curie all together that week are:
