Aliens Are (Probably) Not Broadcasting a Signal from Space : snopes.com

Quote:
According to science journalist Dave Mosher, the signal is indeed so uninteresting that the people who first found it didn't bother to let anyone know right away. The researchers found it using the RATAN-600 radio telescope located in Zelenchukskaya, in southwest Russia, more than a year ago.

Amazing that two private companies have now done this. In my lifetime, we're likely going to see regular commercial flights into sub-orbital, if not orbital, space. That's crazy.

I would love to see this ... but its kinda late for the Obama administration.

Obama just explained how NASA will get humans to Mars by the 2030s - ScienceAlert
Quote:
In a personal column published on CNN this Tuesday, Obama recommitted to getting human astronauts on Mars in the next two decades, and gave new details on how NASA plans to make this happen.

What are the repercussions of the planets traveling so fast?

And aren't the artist's renderings a little off - shouldn't the sun be HUGE in the sky if the planets are that close?

Being that close to their star, they are going to be tidally locked to the sun (like the moon is to earth). That means that there will be a permanent day side and night side to the planet.

Pretty cool that all the planets are tidally locked to each other. That means if you live on the fortune side of one end of the system you get to see a line of planets in the sky.

Not sure how old you are, but they said like they could nail it down pretty well whether that system harbors life in the next decade.

SpaceX Reuses A Rocket To Launch A Satellite

This seems like a major step forward. Now we can start learning how many times a rocket can be reused and how quick the turnaround can be.

That is so cool. Think about that. 1.7 million years to get here and blast through the solar system in a few weeks, never to return and we got to watch it.

Yeppers. Kind of blows my mind whenever some discovery or picture of something new is shown. We (meaning scientists and astronomers) had all these theories about how places like Saturn and Jupiter would be like, and almost all of them were wrong. There really is so much we don't know about space, so kind of wow'ed when something new gets introduced.

Another launch was supposed to happen this morning. I was standing at the window watching (because it's friggin 22 outside) and nothing happened. Apparently some idiot in a chopper ignored the temporary no fly zone and they'll launch tomorrow morning at 7:14 ET.
