Erica James â Lower East Side Girls Club (@girlsclubny)
The Lower East Side Girls Club has a huge science and STEM [science, technology, engineering and math] program. Weâre teaching our girls about careers in science and technology, giving them the skills to change the world. Weâre worried that cuts to science will jeopardize those careers. Thatâs why weâre out here marching. Weâre celebrating science, celebrating girls and hoping that the funding will stay with us.
My message to Trump is to stick with the facts. Climate change affects everybody everywhere, especially on the Lower East Side. Weâre looking out for our community and the people who live there.

@Regrann from @nasa - Behold, two spiral galaxies! Astronomers used the Hubble Space Telescope to take a portrait of a stunning pair of spiral galaxies. This starry pair offers a glimpse of what our Milky Way galaxy would look like to an outside observer. These galaxies look quite different because we see them angled at different positions on the sky. They are actually very similar in terms of their structure and contents.` Both galaxies are approximately 55 million light-years away and reside in a cluster of nearly 2,000 galaxies.
A typical spiral galaxy has arms of young stars that wind outward from its center. The bright arms are regions of intense star formation. Such galaxies have a central bulge and are surrounded by a faint halo of stars. Many spiral galaxies also have bars that extend from the central bulge to the arms.
