hydrostatic equilibrium

Cool, I just learned something.

I guess boobies are too small for that process to work for them though.

1. I don't care if there's a good optical reason for it or not.  I find it completely ludicrous that we can photograph 14-billion-year-old galaxies in exceptional clarity, but that this

upload.wikimedia.org

is the best photograph we can get of Ceres.

2. Are! There! Enough! Superfluous! Exclamation! Points! In! That! Article!?

For a good alien planet coming to an end from collision with a rogue planet story, try Deepsix by Jack McDevitt. Up close view of whole ecosystem and planet being destroyed, reasonably spectacular.

Well, Dawn is closing in on Ceres these days. We'll have far better images by the end of the year. This is a 3d model of Vesta, based on images from Dawn. (use your big monitor for this)

How do you merge something with itself? If it was in two pieces, then it would be two somethings.

1. Good point. What the heck?

2. Writers should use the exclamation point...about every 250,000 words.

Take those binoculars you use to watch through the bedroom window as the girl across the street undresses, and try to focus them on a the eraser of a pencil on your desk.
