Writing this as it’s still fresh in mind (looking at a lot of drafts sitting in my notebook) as well as for the next print if any. I can and will update this, but for now, it’s publishable in my standard.
I have just obtained an opportunity to do an outreach. It’s a very interesting event, and as I previously have obtained a 3-D print of Gale Crater, I was very interested to create a print of my area of research (still Mars, but more to the south)
I’ve seen a lot of tutorial on working with GDAL with Earth data, but not a lot for planetary data, Mars included. As I use GDAL a lot (and in need of reminder myself), why not write a how-to with Martian data.
It’s interesting to know how people from different culture bond with similarly shared mass media. And it is also interesting to know that apparently, I watched a lot of TV back when I was little, heh.
Not my childhood (defeatdiabetes.org)
Anyway, compared to people from, let’s say, the United States, where mass media is equal to a worldwide phenomenon, it’s pretty common to see that your childhood!=other people from different countries’. This definitely happens when a lot of British friends talked about TV shows they watched and children show they’re fond of. Afraid not! As an Indonesian, I have experienced foreign culture during my childhood by…watching a lot of TV!
(This is an add-when-I-remember-to-write-more blog post)
with a focus on Indonesian Citizen
The unfortunate thing about Indonesian studying in the UK is that it’s so very near to go to other countries (as cheap as £12 to go to France, for example), but you can’t because there’s a huge barrier…
What is that?
VISA, of course (still seething inside looking at Malaysian friend who can just impulse-buy flight/bus ticket)
