Welcome to Quasars! 🛰

We're a Lobsters-like for people who enjoy reading and sharing articles about Astronomy, Meteorology, and Atmospheric Sciences.

FAQ

What's a "Quasar"?

Great question! Dictionary.com describes it as, "short for quasi-stellar radio source. A compact, starlike celestial body with a power output greater than our entire galaxy." It was also a great excuse to use a pretty cool and compact URL.

What's a "Lobsters-like"?

In short, a free-standing Reddit dedicated to a single topic. It's a great place for a community who is super interested in a niche to share articles and discuss with like-minded people.

What's that little green/blue dot next to "Quasars"?

I practice Blue/Green deploys. In other terms, every time you see that dot change from one color to the next I've performed another deployment of the website.

I have a concern, who should I contact?

For right now, just email me directly at patrick.arthur.brown@gmail.com. In the future, I'll have better escalation paths and will enable the ability to report articles or comments.

What are the rules

I'll be formalizing these in the future, but for now: Don't be an asshole.

Hi mate! Found this when looking at the lobste.rs sister sites. I was honestly looking to start an instance for cosmos related things myself but you saved me the trouble. If you don't mind me asking, what or who got you interested in science? I, for one read lots of encyclopedias when I was little. My physics teacher also reignited my interest in middle school. If you need any help making a readable privacy policy or ToS, I can try and help. I haven't done it profesionally but i've read quite some of the more "interesting" privacy policies. If you want some bad and good examples let me know.

Hey friend! I'm glad you are into the cosmos as well 🙂

If you don't mind me asking, what or who got you interested in science?

I'm an ex-software engineer who never really got a fair shake an at education so now I'm studying at university with a focus in both Atmospheric Science and Astrophysics. My physics class in high school was pretty awesome as well—I can attribute a lot of my love of the sciences to him. Thanks Mr. Kelley.

That would be awesome! I have no experience with it myself so any help is appreciated.
