With the way this week is going we'll have interplanetary flight by the end of the month.

About damn time. lol

Hubble did it once again. The guy ROCKS!!!
14th Moon around Neptune. Man, that's a whole lot, send some over here. lol

A thorough article on "How Rainforests Help Regulate Earth's Climate And Temperature", which I thought did a good job at explaining the world-important implications that the rainforests have:

And for those interested, here's a petition from Amazon Watch encouraging Ecuador's prime minister to not open the Southern Ecuadorian Amazon up for drilling: http://amazonwatch.org/take-action/stop … in-ecuador

The Amazon is so beautiful it's probably the most beautiful forest I've seen. And thanks for the linkage, I signed. Of course I did. big_smile

Milky Way's supermassive blackhole is in the process of sucking in a huge cloud of gas:

Don't ride in the car with it, it might roll up the windows.

Windows??? I don't think they'd still exist. Not even the car would. Hahaha

"it might roll up the windows" ...for an eternity, you bet!
And not only would those windows be rolled, the would probably be stretched and then circle until colliding with the hole's mass.

There is no escape for the spaghetti-stretched adventurer (given he/she can survive existing as a long, thin strand of warped flesh and blood) when out beyond the event horizon!

"DEATH BY BLACK HOLE!"

Yeah cool stuff this week too. To tell you the truth, like ALL of them really. But that cement thing, yeah maybe but what about the other fumes that pollute it???

They should get out a water propulsion engine instead of gas. Electricity is the new breed now but it still needs a form of energy that you have to recharge and water is litteraly everywhere. Except in deserts that is...

Another one of the spectacular images taken by the Cassini spacecraft on Friday.

"Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity – in all this vastness – there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.
The Earth is the only world known, so far, to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment, the Earth is where we make our stand. It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

—Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot: A Vision of the Human Future in Space, 1997 reprint, pp. xv–xvi

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

Mos Espa to be eaten by sand dune soon.  With pictures!  Seems like sand overpowers the force in the Tunisian desert.  sad

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

That Sagan book is great getken, Read it a bunch of times. Carl is amazing.

And damn azathoth, Luke should run away fast...

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

These last 2 days were an amazing time for an astronomy freak like me.
Time of the year for the BEAUTIFUL Perseids.

Got my Telescope out and saw a damn bunch of them. They say that you have to make a wish every time you see one so with the more than 30 of them I saw last night, I'm set for years. lol

So damn cool to see these, amazing even.

Re: The Science-y Stuff Thread

^ I'll be out there sometime later tonight pondering the big questions! My little brother is coming with too (if he doesn't fall asleep in the next hour). I'm hoping I can school him on some cosmology. Long live the Perseids!

Here's some (in my mind) cool stuff:
