HOT? Try “Superionic Ice”! >>

EPISODE #158

AIRED: 05-17-2019

If there is ANYTHING we here at Ironworx have learned in our time researching Space Lettuce, it is this: Anything is possible while we have scientists on our planet. And the recent discovery led by researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Livermore, California, proves that statement. As per the new study published in the journal Nature, scientists have created a new form of water called “hot ice” that can remain frozen at even the highest degrees of heat. In fact, this ice is as hot as the surface temperature of the sun and melts only near 5000 Kelvin (K) at about 200 GPa i.e. nearly 2 million times the Earth’s atmosphere. What’s even more mind-boggling is that it’s this superionic ice that makes the insides of giant icy planets like Uranus and Neptune. Conversely, Satch’s “Ice 9”!! Buckle up!!
–When Beresheet (to be translated by Zack) struck the Moon it was moving very fast. According to NASA, its speed was around 1,000 meters per second higher than its team had planned for, and when the lander contacted the surface it was completely destroyed.
–Every year, Earth passes through the tail of the comet Encke – twice. This isn’t unusual. We regularly cross cometary trails of ice and dust. But this one may be different. It could have been the source of the dramatic 1908 Tunguska airburst which flattened hundreds of square kilometers of Russian forest. The 45m wide comet fragment struck on June 30, at the height of the Beta Taurid shower.
–We CAN drive out Spinny space Pear around the Solar System like a…why, like a TESLA in Space!! Just gotta hook up some hella big rockets, pointed DOWN, natch, then hit TURBO, right? Anyone? Killface, any comments, ideas?
–Gene Simmons went to the White House. Unannounced. Nixon was not home…

We are usually able to wade through the heaping helpings of leafy green space goodness with relative ease, calm, wit, reserve, aplomb…it might take a bit of leafy green goodness off-air sometimes, but we make it to the end of the show with MOST of our frontal lobe intact. Until today. Today, today, today. Today,...

Today begins with a reluctant #WaltRant, one that comes from a deeply wounded, hurt-filled place.
