Adrift: the Secret World of Space Junk

June 29, 2017

Adrift: the Secret World of Space Junk
http://www.projectadrift.co.uk

“Most people would be really surprised if you told them there was two million pieces of space junk…surrounding the earth as close to 160 kilometers away,” notes sound artist Nick Ryan. Ryan, along with film director Cath Le Couteur, are the masterminds behind Adrift, an unusual, multifaceted project about space debris. This project, which will appeal to art fans and space fans alike, is made up of three components: Watch, Adopt, and Listen. First, visitors may watch a short documentary film by Le Couteur that explores the history of space debris. In fact, the film is partially narrated from the imagined perspective of three actual pieces of space junk. In a similar spirit, the Adopt portion of the project provides an interactive experience where participants follow and exchange tweets with the three anthropomorphized pieces of space junk on Twitter. Finally, visitors can Listen and learn about Ryan’s unique sound art project based on the prevalence of space debris. Ryan’s project incorporates a phonograph and real-time data about space debris to create sound for a phenomenon that is silent. Although space junk travels at 17,500 mph, it makes no sound because it exists in the vacuum conditions of space. Each of these three. components of Adrift are engaging and highly informative.

Science Gossip

June 28, 2017

Science Gossip
https://www.sciencegossip.org

Citizen science projects are a growing trend, thanks in large part to platforms like Zooniverse that facilitate group data collection and analysis. However, as the team behind Science Gossip notes, citizen science also flourished during the nineteenth century. For example, Charles Darwin relied on the correspondence and observations of over 2,000 individuals as he crafted the theory of evolution. Science Gossip, a collaboration between the UK based Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Missouri Botanical Garden, and the Biodiversity Heritage Library (BHL), is a citizen science project that seeks to understand “why, how often, and who made images depicting a whole range of natural sciences in the Victorian period.” The project invites people to review and classify maps, illustrations, charts, and photographs that appeared in four nineteenth-century science periodicals. These journals played an important role in connecting and encouraging collaboration between scientists and science enthusiasts. Science Gossip will be of interest to scientists and historians alike, and may also make for an engaging classroom activity. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.

Text Mining

June 27, 2017

Text Mining
http://www.istl.org/17-spring/internet.html

Text Mining from Science and Technology Resources on the Internet by Kristen Cooper. Taken from the overview: “As defined by Bernard Reilly (2012), president of the Center for Research Libraries, text mining is “the automated processing of large amounts of digital data or textual content for the purpose of information retrieval, extraction, interpretation, and analysis.” The first step is to find or build a corpus, or the collection of text that a researcher wishes to work with. Most often researchers will need to download this corpus to either their computers or an alternative storage platform. Once this has been done, different tools can be used to find patterns, biases, and other trends that are present in the text (Reilly 2012). Within higher education, text mining is most often found among the digital humanities and linguistics studies. However it is growing in popularity in the science and technology fields. It is possible to find many examples of how text mining is beginning to be utilized in the sciences. It allows users to search across a large set of documents to find connections that would be prohibitively expensive in terms of time to attempt to read individually. An example of this can be seen in the biomedical sciences where Frijters et al. (2010) used text mining to search in MedLine for drugs that could interfere with cell proliferation. Another example can be found with the works of the EXFOR library, which contains experimental nuclear reaction data. Hirdt and Brown (2016) used text mining to build a graph of the relationships between the reactions in the library. They were then able to use this information to identify reactions that are important to researchers but have been understudied. Text mining also has an ability to discover themes and relationships within a corpus through a technique called topic modeling. In a 2016 research study, the authors use topic modeling to determine the proportion of the analyzed text discussing a specific phenomenon, in this case forest fragmentation, and to determine the concepts that are most strongly associated with this phenomenon (Nunez-Mir et al. 2016). In an example from environmental science, Grubert and Siders (2016) use topic modeling to find empirical support for the theory that climate change has become an important topic in environmental lifecycle assessment over time, and revealed a secondary finding of this increase coming at the expense of attention to human health. Finally, the sheer amount of information available to researchers, educators, and scholars makes it increasingly difficult to stay current on a particular topic or field. Anne Okerson (2013) points out that text mining can be a useful and time saving factor in doing a systematic review. Text mining therefore presents librarians with the opportunity to develop skills in a new area that has the potential to be of great use to patrons.” This will be added to Data Mining Resources Subject Tracer™.
