Welcome to the "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey" discussion thread and drinking game!

Episode 9: The Lost Worlds Of Planet Earth
World-renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Ship of the Imagination are on a journey through space and time to grasp how the autobiography of the Earth was written.

Tonight's rules:

Neil says:

Billion(s) - big sip
Billions and billions - finish your drink
Geology(ist) - sip
Earth - sip
Ocean - sip

Neil deGrasse Tyson and the Ship of the Imagination

"the ship of 'imagination'" has got to be the stupidest possible name ever in the history of stupidest possible names for a science and fact-based tv show.

/fact

Would still rather watch GOT
 
2014-05-04 08:40:54 PM  
Thanks for the reminder, subby.

/I tend to forget these things

Why? Virtually every scientific hypothetical I was ever presented with starts with the word imagine. Without imagination half of these things would not have been discovered. It's a perfectly apt term, considering that what is being explored from the ship cannot be explored physically.

Finally caught up on previous episodes, now I'm watching Symphony of Science, inspired by the end of last week's episode.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: Without imagination half of these things would not have been discovered


Einstein's theory of General Relativity was hatched from a thought experiment, for example.

Adolf Oliver Nipples: explored from the ship cannot be explored physically.


Yeah, I guess; at first glance, imagination implies fiction but in truth they're only theorizing anyway.

And that whole 'imagination is more important than knowledge' thing.

But it changes the matter (no pun) entirely between fact and theory.

SCIENCE TIME B*TCHES

Ocean is good.  I was going to study marine ecology before the math dept got a hold of me.

My favorite drinking game of all time involved watching to catch a predator, and listening for Chris Hansen to say shex. We got loaded pretty quick. Then Hansen hadda ruin it.. :-(

SquiggsIN: okay.. my wife is going to have nightmares about giant bugs tonight!


That damn millipede would seem to warrant a few.
 
2014-05-04 09:05:12 PM

Trees seem pretty advanced, compared to rocks and moon dust.

Bet there are trees on Enceladus
 
2014-05-04 09:06:02 PM  
GLOBAL OXIDATION!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!
 
2014-05-04 09:06:08 PM  
This may have been covered in prior threads, but does the sound on fox cut out often for anyone else?

I ditched cable but kept internet which means I still get several channels but fox constantly cuts out on sound and it's the only channel to do so.

Any thoughts on how to fix that?
 
2014-05-04 09:06:21 PM  
Ha! Hundreds of billions. Kegger!
 
2014-05-04 09:06:51 PM  
Fossil time!

SquiggsIN: diplopods are neat.


Well yes, but millipedes are pretty much the only animals that really squig me out.

He sings to the trees.

"Earth" was a poor choice.

Is ndt high this episode? He usually looks smacked out of his mind. Space junk is heavy I heard.
 
2014-05-04 09:08:47 PM  
Hmmm, must go to Nova Scotia....
 
2014-05-04 09:09:24 PM  
The creationists have now labeled a beach in Nova Scotia evil, not that they know where the fark Nova Scotia is
