Oh big deal! I found some dust behind my dresser when I moved it the other days that is AT LEAST as old as what they spent all that money to collect. Ands I'll sell it to them cheap...
Hmmmm....seems like I've read about this some place before.............
I love the guy in the background with the peace symbols - I'll bet in another picture he starts banging his head like Beavis and Butthead.
Wouldn't it be interesting, of someday, we learn that at the heart of every comet, it's nucleus --is an old Buick with "Non-op" insurance?
It makes you think...
I'm glad we're spending billions going to Pluto and collecting dust (I collect dust too)-- instead of building a wall at the border. A wall of Kryptonite-- seven feet thick. Red or green- makes no difference.
Good job, guys!!!
Just another example proving that scientists should avoid waxing rhapsodic....
A lot of that dust behind your dresser might have come from space. Estimates of how much space dust lands on Earth every day range from 100 to 1,000 tons.
It's an alien life form...hellbent on Earth's destruction! Where's Mulder and Scully?
The truth is out there..........:)
So, I'm not getting fatter? The accumulation is just causing the gravitational pull of the earth to increase?
Meanwhile, back in low earth orbit,
the crew of the ISS is doing a great job
of cleaning green slime off of the walls
of their spaecraft.
"I love the guy in the background with the peace symbols - I'll bet in another picture he starts banging his head like Beavis and Butthead."
No, then he would have done the "Dio" fingers (index and pinky).
I've always blamed gravity waves for any apparent weight gain -- but come to think of it, accumulated space dust would explain the slow & steady gains better.
It's good to know it's not just me.
Thank you very much for the ping! Congrats to any of your friends who may be working on this. We have a prof here at the U of M's Physics and Astronomy department who is going to be working on some of the samples.
Probably a V for Victory, actually.
This guy wasn't flashing a 'peace sign'
And neither was this guy ...
They're both flashing a 'Vee for Victory' sign.
