Comsos Star “Finds” Cosmic Tar >>

EPISODE #124

AIRED: 01-08-2019

When you or I indulge a bit heavily in cannabinoidistic vocabulation, we might get a few laughs. When the really BIG brains get really small and wax poetic about bong residue, we get all new scientific jargon. Seems Carl Sagan, besides dwelling on nifty blue balls, also liked to thunk on things ooey, gooey and cosmic…man. He (and a buddy) developed the concept of tholins, which he described as “a brown, sometimes sticky, residue […] synthesized by ultraviolet (UV) light or spark discharge.” Try salt and alcohol next time, just run a bit of hot water through there first to loosen up the star-tar…
–The first sign of trouble was the ever-extended launch date. (We sympathize, friend!!) One customer of space tourism firm Xcor Aerospace thought his flight would come in 2011. Nael Hamameh expected 2015 to be the year he would finally achieve his childhood dream of going to space, having paid Xcor US$100,000 (NZ$149,500) for a ticket. But 2015 came and went. After hearing no word of progress, Hamameh asked for a refund. Well, considering that they originally said in 2008 that trips to “space” would begin in 2010…let us know how that goes…
–Maybe try booking a flight on a LIVING spaceship next time…
–January 21: Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse-
For the first time in three years, the United States will be able to experience a total lunar eclipse. According to NASA, it will be one of the sky’s “most dazzling shows,” as the moon will be at its closest point to Earth, making the moon appear slightly bigger and a lot brighter, an event that is often referred to as a “supermoon.” But that’s not the only thing that will make this eclipse stand out. Total lunar eclipses are often called “blood moons” because when the sun, Earth, and moon align, the sunlight that passes through the Earth’s atmosphere will appear to turn the moon red. And because lunar eclipses can occur only during a full moon — and the first full moon in January is known as a “wolf moon” — many are calling this spectacular event a “Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse.” At around 12:12 a.m. ET, people in North and South America, as well as those in western parts of Europe and Africa, will have front-row seats to this show.
