The quest to conquer Earth’s space junk problem, Nature news, Sep 2018
"Zombie satellites, rocket shards and collision debris are creating major traffic risks in orbits around the planet. Researchers are working to reduce the threats posed by more than 20,000 objects in space. "

(great animation from ESA, and Nature infographic)

"Several teams are trying to improve methods for assessing what is in orbit, so that satellite operators can work more efficiently in ever-more-crowded space. Some researchers are now starting to compile a massive data set that includes the best possible information on where everything is in orbit. Others are developing taxonomies of space junk — working out how to measure properties such as the shape and size of an object, so that satellite operators know how much to worry about what’s coming their way. And several investigators are identifying special orbits that satellites could be moved into after they finish their missions so they burn up in the atmosphere quickly, helping to clean up space. "

YouTube - Isarithmic History of the Two-Party Vote
"Using county-level data, I spatially and temporally interpolated presidential vote returns for the two major party candidates in each election from 1920-2008. The result illuminates the sometimes gradual, sometimes rapid change in the geographic basis of presidential partisanship.

infographic money concept
"tokyo based designer mac funamizu wondered what would happen if we rethought how coins were
designed with an infographic perspective. funamizu remarks on the merits and drawbacks of round
coins. while he acknowledges their benefits he wanted to see if they could be redesigned in a way that
was more universally understood. this would benefit travelers and people not accustomed to a specific
currency. the idea barrows from the world of graphic design, giving each coin an infographic form that
corresponds to pie charts. a one dollar coin is a circle, while a two dollar coin is two. the smaller
increments are segments of the circle or perforated to show what percentage they represents. while this
idea wouldn’t work very well in things like vending machines, it makes you think about alternative
ways we could design money."
