Mars Express' High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) caught Phobos over Mars' limb on its orbit 7982, on March 26, 2010. The waviness of Mars in the background is a by-product of the line-scanning nature of HRSC. This photo was captured during one of two Phobos flyby seasons that happened last year; the other was in August. The March photos are now available to everyone via ESA's Planetary Science Archive.

Tried ISON spotting a few days ago, no success. Doubtful on it being as bright as the moon but should be visible to the naked eye soon!

No, what is that? Tell me more please.

I attended a conference on xenophobia last year solely to see Freeman Dyson be an intellectual badass, but he didn't contribute anything to the panel discussion at all except a story involving his grandaughters with the moral essentially being "children are the future and thus very important."

It sucked.

Hale-Bopp instead of Halle, got mixed up with Halley's comet.


Comet Hale–Bopp was perhaps the most widely observed comet of the 20th century and one of the brightest seen for many decades. It was visible to the naked eye for a record 18 months, twice as long as the previous record holder, the Great Comet of 1811.

Yes I remember hearing about it, and I remember seeing it.

I also remember the cult members who performed a mass suicide because they thought the comet was an alien vessel that would take them to heaven.

Marshall Applewhite was a genius. His name was even carried on through a Texas QB in the early 2000's I think, minus the Marshall, and add Major. The guy knew what was coming and decided to take the high road. Aliens are coming, and you can be the hammer or the nail. I prefer the hammer. (Troll)

8. Avoid sarcasm and facetious remarks.
Without the voice inflection and body language of personal communication these are easily misinterpreted. A sideways smile, :-), has become widely accepted on the net as an indication that "I'm only kidding". If you submit a satiric item without this symbol, no matter how obvious the satire is to you, do not be surprised if people take it seriously.

Maybe not the most memorable if you recall a fireball, I imagine you were playing with your asshole at the time.

But you're being sarcastic again with that, right?

Edit : Maybe not empathetic enough?

What could be this years biggest meteor shower is this weekend,
I've been waiting 6 months for it but it's predicted to peak during daylight hours here.

Go lie in a field late tomorrow night.

Another RI talk on quantum biology.
Philip Ball explains how strange quantum effects take place in the messy world of biology, and how these are behind familiar biological phenomena such as smell, enzymes and bird's migration.
