Introducing Daily Distraction: Tech relief for you, a human in lockdown

2 days ago 2

For the first time in decades, the whole world is following the same routine. Wake up, read the news on coronavirus, stay inside your house if possible, ponder about the futility of life, try to sleep.

Naturally, you need to distract yourself for a bit, and what better place to do that than the vast expanses of the internet? In this new column, we’ll share a few things each to help take your mind off the news.

Here’s what we’ve got in store for you today.

JSTOR, the infamous popular online library has 6,000 of its ebooks and 150 journals under open access. You can also read 26 of its public health journal archives till June 30. The European Space Agency (ESA) has some kickass tools to take you to the infinity and beyond. These tools include a star mapper, a telescope explorer, and a few documentaries.

With many people #stayinghome these days, we have curated a selection of activities for you to pass time and learn more about space science in the meantime.
