      Well, I mean, I don’t see a ‘No Littering’ sign.. do you? They.. I mean we; We uhhh, need a sign.

      Really though, everyone can do their part. Clear away excess personal baggage. That way, the translocal ‘you’ doesn’t get their bags lost during the long flight through time/space/infinity and litter in the universe.

    sun shots 

    ScienceDaily (Apr. 22, 2010) — NASA’s recently launched Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, is returning early images that confirm an unprecedented new capability for scientists to better understand our sun’s dynamic processes….

    Some of the images from the spacecraft show never-before-seen detail of material streaming outward and away from sunspots. Others show extreme close-ups of activity on the sun’s surface. The spacecraft also has made the first high-resolution measurements of solar flares in a broad range of extreme ultraviolet wavelengths.

    “These initial images show a dynamic sun that I had never seen in more than 40 years of solar research,” said Richard Fisher, director of the Heliophysics Division at NASA Headquarters in Washington. “SDO will change our understanding of the sun and its processes, which affect our lives and society. This mission will have a huge impact on science, similar to the impact of the Hubble Space Telescope on modern astrophysics.”

    “In the simulation, cosmic gas slowl… 

    “In the simulation, cosmic gas slowly coalesced under the force of gravity and eventually formed the first stars. These massive, hot stars burned bright for a short time, emitting so much energy in the form of starlight that they pushed away nearby gas clouds.
    These stars could not sustain such a fiery existence for long, and they soon exhausted their internal fuel. One of the stars in the simulation collapsed under its own weight to form a black hole. With only wisps of gas nearby, the black hole was essentially “starved” of matter on which to grow.
    Yet, despite its strict diet, the black hole had a dramatic effect on its surroundings. This was revealed through a key aspect of the simulation called radiative feedback, which accounted for the way X-rays emitted by the black hole affected distant gas.
    Even on a diet, a black hole produces lots of X-rays. This radiation not only kept nearby gas from falling in, but it heated gas a hundred light-years away to several thousand degrees. Hot gas cannot come together to form new stars. “Even though the black holes aren’t growing significantly, their radiation is intense enough to shut off star formation nearby for tens and maybe even hundreds of millions of years,” said Alvarez.”

    Meteor shower 

    Can’t help but notice how shitty the iPhone wordpress app is. That said, holler untz to the annual meteor shower that will be hopefully raging at lost gulch tonight. Same one that helped us bid farewell to the string cheese incident two years ago…

      is the shower tonight? i thought it was last night and i was bummed because it was all socked in in West LA…

    • perpetuallyphil 6:17 pm on August 12, 2009 Permalink

      pretty sure it was last eve AND tonight… saw some pretty things in the sky round here!

      see you soon chris!

      11th, 12th, and 13th… saw some last night 🙂
      I have an interesting thing to mention with my own personal experience with meteors and being connected with the Earth’s response.
      Will try n keep it short and to the point:

      When I was about 7-10 my family and I were staying at some friends place outside of Vail somewhere…I woke up in the middle of the night, had this distinct feeling and was drawn to the room my parents were in and felt like looking off in the distance out their window….I saw the most spectacular site…a meteor STORM (a storm is where you see them literally every second constantly) in the distance over the moonlit mountains range.

      Fast forward to age 16 or so, two of my friends and I were staying in one of their relatives place somewhere outside of Boston. DXM, Salvia, and alc. were abroad this night…and after resting a bit in the night…I woke up with this same distinct feeling that I remembered as a child. I walked to the patio door, swung the curtains open and there was ANOTHER METEOR SHOWER going on right in front of us over the ocean. So I woke them up, and because my vision was distorted I couldn’t figure out what the red lights on the land were (i thought it was the meteors glowing in the ocean and moving around in the water)..but, we finally figured out it was car lights on a distant road hehe.

      Enjoy the next two nights 😀

      I always think about that night after cheese. ( = beautiful times! I’m headed up to Radium in Vail to relax and enjoy the sky! Miss you guys!

      socked-in again last night. still have yet to see a meteor shower in my life 😦

    • adriuntz 10:33 pm on August 13, 2009 Permalink

      I saw a shooting star at the gorge for the first time in a long while…not quite a meteor shower but ya know it still puts a smile on your face

    um this burner dude…bruce damer….wants to virtually simulate the creation of life by hooking up a million computers….i guess he thinks if we can simulate digitially life forms emerging, from an asteroid?  we could transmit these to a nano-fiber creating machine on a rocket which i guess can turn the digital data about the life form into a material creation….something to think aboout this monday….;)

      turning digital data into material creation = fedex at 299,792,458 m/s
