    Have you ever seen the film? soooo slick and seamless. The Eames crush shit.

    What ever happened to the Superstring Theory thread? That should be up for a well-deserved bump soon.

    i'm a total science geek.

    the Leonids are happening this month too.

    hopefully they'll be nice.

    i saw it a few years ago, it was totally amazing...i saw so many shooting stars that night, i've got wishes for decades..

    i have considered going back to school to secure a physics degree..


    there have been some new postulations about the 'shape' of the universe (which totally confounds me that something infinite can have a shape)..and now they are thinking dodecahedrals..
    pentagon shit.
    crazy.

    TO us it's infinite, but not really. It's constantly expanding so it can't be actually "infinite".

    Leonids Meteor Shower

    http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2003/10...ubleleonids.htm

    October 10, 2003: The Leonid meteor shower is coming. Twice.

    Bill Cooke of the Space Environments Group at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center explains: "Normally there's just one Leonid meteor shower each year, but this year we're going to have two: one on Nov. 13th and another on Nov. 19th."

    Both are caused by comet Tempel-Tuttle, which swings through the inner solar system every 33 years. With each visit the comet leaves behind a trail of dusty debris--the stuff of meteor showers. Lots of the comet's old dusty trails litter the mid-November part of Earth's orbit.

    "Our planet glides through the debris zone every year," says Cooke. "It's like a minefield. Sometimes we hit a dust trail, sometimes we don't." Direct hits can spark a meteor storm, which is defined as more than 1000 shooting stars per hour. "That's what happened in, for example, 1966 and 2001," says Cooke. "Those were great years for Leonids."

    "This year we're going to brush past two of the trails--no direct hits," he says. Even so, "we might have a nice display."

    The first shower is expected on Nov. 13th around 17:17 UT. For about three hours centered on that time Earth will be close to some dust shed by Tempel-Tuttle in the year 1499. Sky watchers in Alaska, Hawaii and along the Pacific rim of Asia are favored. They'll see anywhere from a few to 40 meteors per hour--"if they can avoid the glare from that night's gibbous Moon," cautions Cooke. A good strategy for moonlit meteor observing: travel to high altitudes where the air is clear or stand in the shade of a tall building or hillside.



    oops.
    i guess i missed the first one.

    but i saw it in 01 when i was painting a beauty of a spot. what a night!
