    Project mention: Building APOD color search part I: Image analysis in Rust | | 2023-02-23

    Processing a single APOD is one thing, but the end goal is to process all of them. The cleanest way to group batches of days was by month. As the apod-api supports start_date and end_date parameters to support this, I just used the first and last days of the month for these parameters.

    Project mention: r/SpaceX Thread Index and General Discussion [January 2023, #100] | | 2023-01-12

    Well, you'll be happy to hear that the sub recently moved to an automated solution for next event table (sidebar) and upcoming launches (top bar), best seen on Old reddit, meaning it should now be extremely reliable (it is based on the LL2 API).

  • amateur-satellite-database

    The amateur satellites in space

    Project mention: AMSAT's new searchable database of all the amateur radio satellites | | 2022-10-24
  • TrueColorTools

    A set of Python tools for calculating human-visible colors of celestial bodies from their spectra or color indices

    Project mention: The Inner Planets | | 2023-03-19

    - The hair colors are either derived from Askaniy's TrueColorTools, or FarGetaNik's textures. Most of the clothes' colors come from Dr. Luke Campbell's sky color simulation. Yes, Venus' surface is not orange, and all of the planets look a lot more sombre in real life than the popular portrayals.
