Volcanoes on Jupiter's Moon Io Are All Wrong Show Us How Little We Know About The Universe, NASA Says

"Io's major volcanic activity is concentrated 30 to 60 degrees farther east than models of its internal heat profile predict"

So your models are just wrong. At least I won`t get called an Io volcanism denier for saying that...

Just as long as they leave Europa alone, we'll be fine.

It's 2013 and Jupiter's still not glowing brightly. Fix it! Not that I'm complaining about all such instances: we missed the hellish world of 1984 too.

THAT'S IT!!! Science is wrong! I'm joining the nearest religion and start prayin' reeeeal hard and all you heathens better start too!...

Maybe the scientists should have been paying more attention to the volcanoes instead of looking at Uranus!

I'm not sure, there is sure a lot of doublethink around.

Now notice the difference between science and [a lot of] religions.  Scientists realize something isn't what they predicted it would be.  They then propose a hypothesis.  In this case, they proposed a couple of different hypotheses that they would be able to test.  Many relgions:  "NO!  You're wrong!"

Maybe some of us like to reminisce about shared experiences that we all enjoyed.  You know, in a friendly sense of community.  You've never quoted a movie ever?  EVER?

Damn, you are a judgmental asshole.  Maybe you should go to Reddit or 4Chan or some place without so many dorks instead of shiatting all over our friendly interaction here.

I don't mind the 2010 references (yet), but I could really do without the same five jokes in every thread that even remotely references the seventh planet. Do those posters really think they're being clever? I'm not sure I want to know.

Cheeto dust is really flying. Testy, testy.

It's rote repetition of a badly written line, dorks. You do it every damn time Jupiter is mentioned.

It's as bad as the "tears in rain" crap that gets repeated every time Bladerunner or rain in LA is mentioned.

Plus if they pronounced its name correctly the jokes would be about piss, not buttholes.

Not even that, it should probably be pronounced "oo-RON-us", which sounds like neither.

Whatever. They're eventually going to change the name to get rid of that stupid joke once and for all.

I watched a cheezy old movie on Netflix called "Journey to the Seventh Planet". For most of the movie they just avoided saying the planet's name, but when they did, they pronounced it "you-RAWN-us". This sounded to me like a reasonable English pronunciation that avoided the grade school joke potential.

Also, if you like cheezy old sci-fi, definitely check out the flick. It's seriously cheezy.

I'll look for that. Seriously, though they could have avoided much of the problem by spelling it "Ouranos" instead of the crappy Latin version.

Uhm, hello Io-volcanism-modeler-dudes, you need to learn from earth climatologists.

Remember, your models are ALWAYS EXACTLY RIGHT, no matter how the data turn out.

In fact, you can read all about it in the IPCC report, section 109, how global climate change will cause Io volcanism to appear displaced 30 to 60 degrees.

This is exactly what the models predict.

It's worse than we thought.

Iteratively refined models aren't always exactly right. They do, however, get better and better, and therefore tend to be worth substantially more consideration than ignorant AM radio idiots like Rush Limbaugh ranting "Those eggheads at the IPCC are at it again! Your tax dollars at work, folks!". But enjoy your fantasy of a league of evil scientists who (having taken over an entire field) are tirelessly conspiring to hoodwink the world.

So I know you're super excited that you got to White Knight this for NASA, but I was addressing the ridiculous headline, which is why I left in the "NASA says" part, since that's actually what NASA said, and pretty much what they always say: Not only do they not know all of the answers, they actually hardly know any of them, and they are not afraid to admit it. It's why they exist, and I've never pulled the asshole move you accused me of.
