If I had a wee bit more discretionary income, I'd be interested in this...

Pioneer Plaque: A Message from Earth


On March 3rd, 1972, NASA launched Pioneer 10 into space to study our solar system and beyond.

Aboard the spacecraft was the Pioneer Plaque, one of the most ambitious pieces of communication ever conceived, serving as a “galactic greeting card”—should any extraterrestrial life come across it.

Today, there are only three plaques in the universe, two of which are billions of kilometers away from our planet, while the third is in the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

Now, I’m bringing the plaque back to Earth.

Here we go again.

The weirdest star in space is acting weird again. Is it aliens?

This week a bizarrely behaving star began acting very odd again, sending scientists scrambling to train telescopes on it in hopes of solving its mystery.

Tabby's Star — great to have a mystery to solve. These things are the spark that moves technology and techniques forward. I hope they figure it out in my lifetime

Feeding a Baby Star with a Dusty Hamburger

Quote:
An international research team, led by Chin-Fei Lee in Academia Sinica Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics (ASIAA, Taiwan), has made a new high-fidelity image with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA), catching a protostar (baby star) being fed with a dusty “hamburger”, which is a dusty accretion disk. This new image not only confirms the formation of an accretion disk around a very young protostar, but also reveals the vertical structure of the disk for the first time in the earliest phase of star formation. It not only poses a big challenge on some current theories of disk formation, but also potentially brings us key insights on the processes of grain growth and settling that are important to planet formation.

This Astronomer Says We'll Find Alien Life Within The Next Decade

Quote:
From highly trained scientists toiling away at research institutes to amateur enthusiasts gazing upward from their backyards, humanity boasts no shortage of people looking for life beyond Earth.

Add to that the massive size of the Universe - estimates range in the trillions of galaxies - and probability dictates that we should have already encountered another species by now. And yet, we still have no evidence that we aren't alone in the Universe.

However, according to astronomy researcher Chris Impey, this hunt for life beyond Earth may soon yield results.

And then, if they do, he'll add his name to the list of all those saying a similar thing, and all saying — I told you so.

And if nothing is found, they just won't say anything.

Not much has changed… except that Barnam and the Circus are now dead …

Well, the news was released quite a few months ago, but no-one has come foreword blaming the Americans for burying their excess carbon to appear carbon neutral.

But I'll bet there's also a heck of a lot of other nasty stuff buried down at those depths that hopefully stays there.

Hilarious Photo Of Mike Pence Ignoring NASA's Warning Sign Gets Brilliant Internet Response



(EDIT: Let's give Mike a break here. I mean, there are Trumpian quotes around the warning, how is he supposed to take it seriously?)
