Today, Josh spots a bit of under-the-radar coded messaging in amongst all the usual bales and bales of space lettuce. First, he noticed and shared a story about how scientists debate a mysterious flash of light in space, known as ‘The Cow’. On June 16, 2018, there was an unusual flash in the sky which puzzled astronomers around the world. The flash event was called AT2018cow and has been nicknamed “The Cow,” and scientists have been debating its source since then. NASA researchers have been collecting data on the event using multiple telescopes and now they have shared their findings at a panel session at the 233rd American Astronomical Society meeting in Seattle. THEN: Josh saw another Space Cow story…Celeste, a cow, has a plethora of tiny white spots spread in clusters over her pitch-black hide. At a glance, it looks like twinkling white stars spread across the night sky. This leads Walt to do some on-air research into cow mythology, which casts him down the deep dark hole that IS Moloch.
