"I can almost imagine giant space whales streaming along at 0.9C that use your extinction analysis to find clouds of dust to feed on as they move from one solar system to another.  "

Stardust

What is the nature of interstellar dust? How does it affect the starlight that passes through it? What can be done to locate and catalog the numerous, small, tenuous dust clouds that populate our galaxy at the higher latitudes? Is it possible to somehow vacuum under my refrigerator without moving the damn thing? The nature and distribution of dust are issues we seek to understand. To that end we will need tools…See More

"Yeah, Brad, a good read and well illustrated. You didn't ask a question so you'll probably get few responses. During the 2012 elections a Florida Repub said the members of the Progressive Caucus in Congress are all Communists. He and your…"

Intelligent Life

The significance of the "Copernican Revolution" is that as soon you embrace the Sun as a star, you are immediately faced with the possibility that when you look out into space, someone or something is looking back. Before Copernicus most people thought the Earth was pretty much the whole Universe so the idea of aliens on other planets really creeped them out. The Jesuits had enough trouble deciding whether or not Native Americans had souls, let alone ET. Did each planet have an Adam and Eve,…See More

"In other words, life elsewhere is likely abundant, but if this life is beyond our ability to interact or even communicate with, that life may as well not even exist as far as humans are concerned. It is relegated to the moot. That is basically…"

""This seems especially important where a one-way trip of 15,000 years is considered a short jaunt." I think this is among your most salient points. Suppose there is life elsewhere (as there likely is). As a practical matter, figures…"

Yep Today I learned something. It's about something that happened to me about 40 years ago. I was 18 and went to see my dad. He was in his barn, tending to his favorite cow. I said I was planning to go to college. He said if I went to Free Will Baptist Bible College in Nashville,…
