The SmartWiki project started this Monday. SmartWiki is a project that combines documents with a variety of topics and keywords into a single Web browser tool. This project will be the basic work needed to build LSEI. My role in this project is to organize articles carefully selected by Michael. It's similar to the Star database that I've been working on before. Read the article, organize the contents, and enter the information in the database. I made a list of different topics and contents in the database so that it is easy to organize them all at once. Keywords and phrases in each list can be easily searched and checked through programming. In short, it is my role to create the contents of the program.
The SmartWiki team had its first meeting this Monday. At the team meeting, all participants in the project gathered at Google Meet to brief themselves and discuss the direction of the project. Hardware engineers do not participate in SmartWiki projects because there is no physical work involved. Michael is leading the project and the rest of the people are in charge of the software. We haven't decided which tools and programming languages will be used for this project yet. I'm trying to create a database that I'm making in many ways. Once the methods and the tools needed for production are determined, it won't take much time to be made.
On Wednesday, Michael attended the Lunar Exploration Analysis Group meeting. Of course it was a digital meeting. Briefly speaking, The LEAG is a community-based, interdisciplinary form. Therefore, the members and participants of the LEAG consist of experts from a wide community.
Michael explained the Lunar dust. The most memorable thing is that Moon Dust Is Super Toxic to Human Cells, for example asbestos. As I listened to it, I became interested, so I looked for more about moon dust.
Astronauts who have been to the moon have commonly complained of similar symptoms, such as allergies, and a study by the European Space Agency's ESA showed that moon dust clings to clothing and poses serious health risks to astronauts. Yes, Lunar dust is made of sharp, abrasive, and nasty particles.
A recent article reminded me that the U.S. unemployment rate is really serious. Another 2.4 million Americans filed for first-time benefits last week on a seasonally adjusted basis. It's an unbelievable figure. Even as the economy is beginning to reopen in parts of the country, layoffs and furloughs have taken hold of the US labor market. I hope we can fill up the article with good news as soon as possible.
