And here we have Lily Bui’s last pick. What if the solar system was a musical instrument? Find out here. (This does have auto-playing audio, just as an FYI friends).
This SolarBeat planetary music generator from White Vinyl design is super-peaceful to listen to, I’ve had it on in the background for like 15 minutes. Just think, every sonic moment in that orbital simulation is a real moment that has or could happen in our little corner of the universe.
That being said, it does seem like a slightly-more-polished clone of Daniel Starr-Tambor’s Mandala project (which I featured on OKTBS ages ago), a planetary musical palindrome consisting of 62 vigintillion notes, likely the largest palindrome in the known universe.
Watch/listen to Mandala below:

Interview with Maryam Mirzakhani, the brilliant Iranian mathematician who was the first woman to win the Fields Medal
What advice would you give lay persons who would
like to know more about mathematics—what it is,
what its role in our society has been and so on?
What should they read? How should they proceed?
This is a difficult question. I don’t think that everyone
should become a mathematician, but I do believe that
many students don’t give mathematics a real chance.
I did poorly in math for a couple of years in middle
school; I was just not interested in thinking about it.
I can see that without being excited mathematics can
look pointless and cold. The beauty of mathematics
only shows itself to more patient followers.
