Why are the winds only going, coming from one direction?

Mjeck: Why are the winds only going, coming from one direction?


I thought it had to do with the relative motion of the solar system in what could be called the "galactic medium". Junk and bits of particles that are part of the galaxy, not major structures, but not part of the solar system. So the winds play a role, but the motion of the system through the larger structure of the galaxy, that moving through the larger cluster, etc. structures creates tails and effects of objects in motion.

Kinda of the other half of bow shock phenomenon. Compressed leading edge, dragged out tail.

And by "prove", they mean "have an artist's rendering".

Just like 99% of the space crap you worship. Oh, here's a question for you, how were we able to "explore" that without sending someone there? Are we ... able to explore just fine from right here by sending machines???

The raw data is available if you want to check their calculations.

I live with that cousin, and apparently his doctors didn't catch a common growth/development that has damaged his spinal cord, ruining the sensation to the bottoms of his feet, twisting up his bladder so he can't pee normally, and almost paralizing him from the waist down.

...yeah, it's no laughing matter. For us, atleast.

/I've been WelcomedToFark.jpg fee free to laugh at his predicament. :3

What a boring article. How about telling us something about how the tail is oriented in space? Does it always trail off in the same direction? I realize there may not be enough data to answer the second question, but surely they know the answer to the first?


Off to Googly...

ArcadianRefugee: Shut the fark up.


Go into space first, then I'll see about that. Until then, my Earth-bound misfit, no way.
