phenn: NIBIRU!!!/I kid//Not really
FastJeff: There are times when writing needs to be able to add a "F*CKING" here and there to add to the seriousness of something."the cosmos began as an incredibly hot, dense point"Seems so... underwhelming.
INeedAName: I cannot bring myself to open a Fox News link for science news.
basemetal: How that black hole was formed in your mom?
HighZoolander: List fails without the tides. They come in, they go out. You can't explain that.
namatad: Shocking! The newest, most accurate data brings the theory into question.
Bondith: RandomAxe6) What's the source of the most energetic cosmic rays?Blue-shift, maybe.FTFA:Cosmic rays are charged subatomic particles - predominantly protons, electrons and charged nuclei of basic elements - that flow into our solar system from deep in outer space. As cosmic rays flow into the solar system from elsewhere in the galaxy, their paths are bent by the magnetic fields of the sun and Earth.Blueshift affects EM radiation, not particles. Electrons have wavelike properties, but once you get up to protons and above the wave-particle duality diminishes and you're dealing strictly with chunks and not waves./I hope that's true, because otherwise I'll look like an idiot//I bolded your maybe to emphasise that I'm not calling you an idiot
Because People in power are Stupid: Astrologers still can't explain Stonehenge, so this list fails.[www.peterpracownik.com image 400x293]
SharkTrager: If it makes up only 5%, and something else is 95%, why do we call it "regular matter"?
Baryogenesis: SharkTrager: If it makes up only 5%, and something else is 95%, why do we call it "regular matter"?Because we're baryonic matter chauvinists
theorellior: GypsyJoker: \obscure?The lizard people and reverse vampires frown on your shenanigans.
Harry_Seldon: God is a whimsical being.
wildcardjack: Because People in power are Stupid: Astrologers still can't explain Stonehenge, so this list fails.[www.peterpracownik.com image 400x293]If astrologers ever explained what they did they'd be out of a business.I hope you were trying for a troll, otherwise you are too dumb to look upon the Geek tab.
namatad: They think the corona is heated by trillions of massive plasma jets
AliceBToklasLives: 9) Why Ke$ha is a star.
RandomAxe: Nothing quite like a science article that displays a fundamental lack of comprehension in its headline. Hasn't Explained /= Can't Explain. If you haven't looked in your neighbor's fridge, you can't say what's in there, but it doesn't mean it's the farking Ark of the Covenant, filled with ineffable mysteries.1) What is dark energy?A hypothetical placeholder for something. Frankly, I don't find this one that interesting, myself, until there's a useful consumer product related to it.2) How hot is dark matter?Kinda hot.3) Where are the missing baryons?Missing. Probably this question is more about the question than about the baryons.4) How do stars explode?KA-BLAMMMM!5) What re-ionized the universe?It would be weirder if it had ended up non-ionized.6) What's the source of the most energetic cosmic rays?Blue-shift, maybe.7) Why is the solar system so bizarre?It's not. It's just a question of perspective.8) Why is the sun's corona so hot?There are several possible explanations, including magnetic compression, and probably we'd know by now if we'd spent more money on investigating this, but probably the money would have been better spent elsewhere. Although not necessarily where we did spend it.
Corporate Self: 9. Why would I trust science reporting from Fox News even if it is a useless fluff piece?
