Mugato: Can't we just replicate it?
xanadian: Bothering? Unsettling? Yeah, lack of lithium 7. OH THE HUMANITY!!!
theorellior: I'm sure someone's thought of this before, but is there something like the triple-alpha carbon resonance at work that preferentially removes Li7 in various processes?
Jim DiGriz: Quantum Apostrophe:Why does it matter? It's not like we've discovered everything, so how could we possibly know? Maybe space elevator, you know? Right? I mean it's obvious.I could write a script that makes more meaningful responses out of random words. I won't, but I could.
Wenchmaster: xanadian: Bothering? Unsettling? Yeah, lack of lithium 7. OH THE HUMANITY!!!I'm assuming you're just being snarky, but I'll give a straight response:I doubt many astrophysicists are bothered or unsettled.
xanadian: I doubt it, too. But TFA uses those words. Hence, my snark. It's like they felt the need to inject drama.
Quantum Apostrophe: "We haven't discovered everything about physics" is the usual Space Nutter rebuttal to the fact that we DO know a hell of a lot about physics.
Quantum Apostrophe: Why does it matter? It's not like we've discovered everything, so how could we possibly know?
Wenchmaster: xanadian: I doubt it, too. But TFA uses those words. Hence, my snark. It's like they felt the need to inject drama.Science "journalists"- or, more likely, their editors- do tend toward hyperbole and bombast when a much more interesting (and readable) article would involve more information and less hype./It's not news//It's a journalistic, news-like art product
brantgoose: The solution is obvious.Blame it on the rain.
Quantum Apostrophe: Maybe all those space-faring civilizations really need a lot of LiPo batteries?
