Ah, Xmas and its great traditions…mistletoe, eggnog, trimming the tree, the return of the Christmas Comet (sound of LP record scratched as the needle is dragged across grooves!) Say what now?? I missed a memo, it seems!
–The Christmas Comet and the Geminid meteor shower are due to light up the night sky within just hours of one another. The Christmas Comet — which is named for the time of year it appears — is expected to emerge as a green and fuzzy comet close to the constellation known as Orion, or the Saucepan.
“The green colour is coming from the gas that is coming off the comet,” ANU astronomer Dr. Brad Tucker told AAP.
“There is a bunch of ice on it and methane — it’s essentially like a dirty snowball and so when it goes around the sun it melts … and is a steamy, stinky green glow.” SO…it shows up at Xmas…it’s gassy, green, and stinky…oh, crap, it HAS to be the Grinch!! Hide your Who Hash!
–Liz asks in chat, what we think these light shows actually are…josh comes up with a mind-bending idea!! Josh: Set up a camera annually…is it the SAME light show every year???
–NASA’s Parker Solar Probe, the first human-made object to fly into the Sun’s corona, completed its first solar flyby on November 11, collecting a wealth of unprecedented data about the workings of our magnificent home star. And now, weeks later, that data is arriving home.
–Virgin Galactic flies its first astronauts to the edge of space, taking one step closer to space tourism…or did they fall juuuust a bit short? Just where the hell DOES space start being spacey??
–NASA is a great place to work for the Feds it seems.
–UF College of Pharmacy receives $3.5 million NIDA grant to bolster kratom research.
–Metallica’s Master Of Puppets voted best album of the 80s.
