Welcome to the 62nd 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.
Who would like some mathematics for a starter? @flyyingkiwi wrote a fantastic post on the exponential curve you'd definitely love to read!
From maths to physics and another wonderful piece, this time by @irelandscape who tries to teach us particle physics. Don't miss this one!
Have you heard of the Open School initiative? Well, in case you haven't, this is your chance to see what these people are doing, @openschool tries to bring knowledge by storing lessons on the blockchain. This post discusses Energy, Power and Intensity of light through our lovely @muphy's videos. Go on, click on that link and don't hesitate to contact him if you want to join!

Another beautiful piece by @eurogee! The first part discussing the science behind parachutes is here, read it before the next one comes out!
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 17 to June 24, we rewarded 149 different authors who have written a total of 188 different articles. The 125 authors who received votes from @steemstem, @utopian-io and @curie all together that week are:
