Today in the “You Can’t WRITE This Sh!+…So THEY Do!” Department: PHONONS!!
So yeah…not a particle…sorta kinda maybe more like a wave, maybe…shape matters not, it is a fact of science now. Even though only ONE has ever been seen before now in the whole history of scientism…no…wait…THAT’S the many MINI moons…only one EVER found, maybe…but let us build ourselves a big ole satellite-telescopy thingie for a gabazillion dollars…we WILL find more…OMG indeed, Scientism!!
-OMG Signal…it is real…thunk it through…never doubt.
-Satellites…space debris…old ISS poop bags…there is a LOT of shite whirling around our spinny space pear as it hurtles through the infinite void (ALSO filled with debris, meteors, etc.).Just how much?? Well, let us then throw another shiny thing up there to put particular emphasis on just how much crap is already up there…because logic and stuff.
-“The length of a football field, and the shape of an elongated diamond, the ‘Orbital Reflector’ artwork is the brainchild of US artist Trevor Paglen and will be launched on board on one of Elon Musk’s SpaceX Falcon 9 rockets.” So, yeah.
-“The detection of “mini-moons”—small asteroids temporarily captured in orbit around Earth—will vastly improve our scientific understanding of asteroids and the Earth-Moon system, says a new review published in Frontiers in Astronomy and Space Science. These small and fast-moving visitors have so-far evaded detection by existing technology, with only one confirmed mini-moon discovery to date. The advent of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) will verify their existence and track their paths around our planet, presenting exciting scientific and commercial opportunities.” Again…so, yeah.
