Forever will the pointy bit of a stegosaurus be known as a "Thagomizer." GL is the man!

Can't you just spread their legs apart?

Thagomizer is the greatest word in science... or is it? This thread is now about the greatest words of science. Go!

Interesting idea to test calcium density for male/females. I wonder if we will ever discover one day, "Oh this species of dinosaur is actually the female of this other species" As its not uncommon for bird species to have significantly different male/female bone structure.

That sort of thing has happened, usually confusing the juvenile with a separate species.

The horrendous space kablooie!

/not an actual name for as astronomical event, but it should be

I'm still trying to coin 'ultranova' for a 3B supernova.

It's triggered by reaching 200 solarmass, hot enough to create antimatter at its core, which then reacts with suprerdense corematter with enough energy for the entire star to go off at once.

Instead of over hundreds of millions of years, a supergiant 200 times the sun's size goes off ... At once.
In a truly titanic detonation, visible across half of the observable universe.

...
So awesome.

Has that ever happened that we know of?

/sound similar to  what would happen if Superman punched you
