Welcome to the 80th 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.
Monday - Wednesday
Our week begins with an amazing post on the origins of life by @spaghettiscience. Read about the first life forms, prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and get ready before taking the leap from single-cell to multi-cell formations!
@insight-out with some psychology is coming next. Read a fantastic, well-written post that promises to help you deal with a modern "pandemic"... stress!
Wednesday - Friday
Another bilingual post makes it to our Distilled this week! Check @lycos' fantastic work with wolves and learn more about those fierce animals!
And after the wolves come... the werewolves! We got a great post by @deholt for you, demystifying those dark creatures and exposing them under the microscope of science.
Saturday - Sunday
Classification of stars according to spectral lines, H-R diagram and it's applications in astrophysics
From dark legends and fantasies, we're raising our eyes to the stars and present you with a wonderful and explanatory post by @rifkan on star classification. Those of you interested in astrophysics will surely love it!
How about some programming before our weekly issue closes? Our @drifter1 speaks the language of programming and is nailing it in a post where he shows us how he's writing his own compiler!
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 6 posts a week out of more than 150-200. 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 October 14 to October 21, we rewarded 86 different authors who have written a total of 104 different articles. The 66 authors who received votes from @steemstem, @utopian-io and @curie all together that week are:
