Unfortunately, several angry Twitter users pointed out it was insensitive of me and irrelevant to mention the country where the Human Photosynthesis Study Center scientists are located.

This blog post – again – is based on a Twitter thread (here is the unroll if you like that better). It is about a nuclear physicist who
works has previously worked at the Research Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics of Maragha (RIAAM) in Iran.
This blog post is not intended to be an allegation of misconduct. I am just wondering about some unclarities and unexpected similarities in a set of papers.
