STEMng Digest: Week 35

Welcome to the 35th episode of the STEMng digest series where we bring to you some of the best posts under the #stemng tag in the past week.

For those that do not know yet, STEMng is a sub-community of steemSTEM, a community-driven project which seeks to promote well-written and informative Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics posts by Nigerians on Steemit. The project involves submitting quality STEM-related posts to the steemSTEM management for upvoting and resteeming where applicable.

More information about STEMng activities are found here, while details of what it means to be part of steemSTEM can be found here, as well.

As we usually do, we have sifted through the STEMng tag and even though there were several good posts to choose from, below are the posts that stood out for week 35.

Saturday: Clearing Up Orbital Junks - Recycling; An Answer?

Opening this week's selection is an article from a STEMng/steemSTEM veteran @samminator. The potential problem posed by orbital debris and a possible solution was discussed.

Sunday: Metrology: The Science of Measurement and how it has shaped the course of History #2.

In continuation of the series on the science of measurement, @emperorhassy discussed the three fundamental units of measurement and the conversion method of changing units of measurement from one physical quantity to another.

Monday: "Fish Oil" Supplements: Is The Hype Exceeding The Science?

@olamseu made his first entry into STEMng digest with a review of the potency of fish oil supplement as compared to eating real fish. Are these supplements as effective as they are proclaimed or mere hypes? A read of the article will provide an answer.

Tuesday: Optics #2_ The Dual Nature Of Light; The Wave Theory

Another episode of the optic series from @ikchris. In this episode, the nature of light as a wave was simplified as light is known to exhibit boundary properties of a wave. A good read by all ramifications.


Wednesday : Let's talk about Xenobiotics, biotransformation, Drug Synergism and the Placebo effect

This 4 in 1 post by @cyprianj explained and simplified the concepts of xenobiotics, drug transformation, drug synergism and the placebo effects. Quite detailed and well written too.


@oluwoleolaide delved into the possible science of immortality and how scientific investigations could make death evitable by the year 2045. An interesting read.

Friday : Is the Moon Really Important? Or is it Just a Pretty Accessory That Decorates the Night Sky?

Round of the selection for this week is this article by @agbona in which he discussed what the earth would have been like without its moon. The indispensability of the moon was extensively discussed.
