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.

Let’s all whooooosh together. No REALLY whooooooooooooooosh! Think I’m being silly?? Well, rather than me going on about the silliness of the Space Lettuce today, enjoy it verbatim: “Scientists think there’s a “dark matter hurricane” heading toward Earth. In fact, it might even be blowing through us already. But don’t worry — it’s definitely not...

Gotta love it! Vocabulation!! What does it mean? Does it mean squat? Squat, does it mean? Radioactive regolith. Hot rocks. Squat rocks. Melting away at the icy bum of our spinny space pear. Big ole chunks. “The process of melting we observe has probably been going on for thousands or maybe even millions of years...

I LOVE me some newfangled wordification! I’ve always prided myself on my intrinsicallastic abilities to vocabulate quite scrumtralecently on a regular tip, so whenever Josh comes acrossed new additionistical verbage, it is immediately added to the collective unctuosiousness. Thereby a show title was born! If you can tell us the minute mark where the word...

“You are just watching TOO many YouTube videos…” The rallying cry of the cognitively distended as they dissonantly attempt to hold together their crumbling cookie of a paradigm. Those of us who like to ask questions have had just a few about this supposed greatest technological achievement in all of human history. “Oh, you wanted...

Sorry, Pinky! Part of the Genisis Mission, it came to an abrupt end. Launched on 8 August 2001, the Genesis mission was the space agency’s ambitious effort to send a spacecraft into our...
