Great movie.

What's with the astronomy news?

and... I have never seen a zero for the comment number before

That's one big watch.

If I want to sea a giant pulser, I'll take my trousers off.

Who wants to photograph my giant pulsar?
 
2003-05-30 11:52:49 AM
I'm all into astronomy and everything but give it a rest people!

The Andromedans are coming and are going to turn us all into hexagonal blocks

Yes, but is it a calculator too?

ALL OF THIS WAS MADE JUST FOR MEEEEE!!

It is likely that much of this hot gas is produced and heated in supernova explosions, and massive star winds

Oooh, talk dirty to me....

So, anyone want to discuss the Andromeda sci-fi show? I just started watching it a couple of months ago and can some explain what the deal is with the Nieztchians? Why are they named after some crazy Earth philosipher?
 
2003-05-30 12:01:49 PM
Did I earn a PH.D for trying to understand that article?

Space, the final, final, final frontier...

I know KHAN is in there somewhere!

I haven't seen the show, but my guess is that someone on the show wants to engender to today's audiences the age old tradition of college sophomore males quoting Neitzche to impress college freshman girls.

college sophomore males quoting Neitzche to impress college freshman girls.

Ah, that was my problem. I was always quoting the movie Dune ...you know, the over-reaching voice overs that were attempting to simulate the italicized text of the book (i.e. "Dune....Arrakis....Desert Planet....").

No wonder I didn't get a lot of freshman girls to sleep with me.

I keep getting emails on how to naturally increase the length and width of my pulsar.

It was preeeeeeetty!

Is that Carnie Wilson in the center?

No no no silly... Carnie couldn't fit in there!

Nothing like a little Nutzie to thrill those college chicks.

Just remember, when you leave the atmosphere, your only in the begining of space, and your not even in OUTER space yet.

Superman? no, I leave that up to KHAN!

Even Ahnold does good Nietzche -

'to crush yur enemies, to see dem driven befor joo, and to hear da lamentation of de vemons'

The real Nietzche test - how do you really pronounce his name?
 
2003-05-30 12:22:32 PM
Geez, what's wrong with a cool astro pic??

(Well, for one thing, that's two days in a row I couldn't bring up the rednova site, but other than that...)

198 seconds is very slow for a pulsar. Maybe the period is something other than the rotation period of the source.
 
2003-05-30 12:27:12 PM
I always pronounced it knee'-chee.
 
2003-05-30 12:28:30 PM
LOL

see, chee or shuh?
 
2003-05-30 12:33:35 PM
AAAhh!!! we're all gonna die!

....wait a minute...what was it they photographed?
 
2003-05-30 12:37:39 PM
You pronounce "Nietzche": "bitter little hunchbacked man."
 
2003-05-30 12:38:58 PM
God, every time I see something like this I have something along the lines of the same thought...

We're so damn tiny.

It's all just some big accident! Oops!

Ayeroxor, ask Sai to spell it for you next time. No spellcheck in form boxes!

Space is big. Really big. You thought it was a long walk to the corner market, but that's nothing compared to space.

Space is big.

This was a shockingly technical article, when you think about older FARK with Cosmiverse articles daily. If I may use a tired old stereotype to humor some of our more easily amused farkers, I can't imagine these guys presenting "The neutron star, XMMU J004415.8+413057, appears to be spinning..." in Nashville without getting at least one 'gawd dammit, Ed!' out of the crowd.
 
2003-05-30 12:50:20 PM
The answer for it all is out there someplace.... 42!

No, its 198 seconds to rotate. I have to say thats an amazing image. I think all the astronomy news is just another step to confirm the this isnt an adult site.
 
2003-05-30 12:53:35 PM
Kirk, "Fire off pulsars"

Sulu, "Aye, captin"

KHAN, "KIIIIRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK"
 
2003-05-30 12:55:06 PM
Well, bitter or whatever else Nietzsche may have been there's at least one positive thing: out of all the big name philosophers, he's the only one that never bored me. Always a plus.

And NEET_shuh is the correct pronunciation if you ask the Euros, and since he was one...

I had a giant pulsar on my butt once, so I squeezed it, and it got better.
 
2003-05-30 01:16:16 PM
Andromeda is very cool as the only galaxy you can recognize with tne naked eye.

You would have to travel at six hundred and seventy million miles an hour for two point five million years to get there. And that's our closest galaxy to us? Cripes!

I'm beginning to really like Red Nova
