Thanks for braving the cold for us!!!
Thanks, Ben! Healing currents going out to Katherine….♡♡♡♡♡
I hope Katherine is well again missed having the team talking hope it is a good chat next week.
Really liked the imagery – it’s better than the blank screen – no matter how many people are on the line.
Praying for Kat.
Good stuff. Does Douglas V’s use of the word ‘information ‘ (at the center of the Sun) equal energy? That’s the way i’m Using it.
Ben, thanks for the superman effort to give all of us the info and opinions we crave. Good to see you (and others) are helping Vogt focus his efforts. He may have useful views, but I wasted way too much time watching his vids where he rarely (if ever) actually does what the headline hook claims…way too many “parlor games” with words and numbers in the personal bluster of hand-waving and bs. Never mind that he likes to create supernatural processes, particles and entities much like traditional astrophysics has for over a hundred years. Don’t have time for another multi-dimension hologram guy.
On another topic, finally made the time to read your weatherman’s guide and took the final test. I suspect you already know chapter one has a couple small issues and the presentation style takes some adjustment…maybe it’s the high school orientation? Anyway, thanks for that too, well worth the money.
All the best to Kat, hope she gets better fast. A grand son has her “visit the planets” and we look forward to more in the series.
just watched the heavy metal impacted video. Do you all suppose the large object/rock stuck in the center of Australia could be 1 of these objects. Though its sticking out of the ground a bit. I think it was said that it is 6 miles deep as well.
B”H A 2019 Prentice-Hall Science textbook was lying around where I was, early Friday evening.. I opened it – by Providence found myself looking at a diagram of a regular Nova as contrasted with a Micronova, and the latter gave rise to a white dwarf star and its ‘dead star’ companion, so it seems the educators are now teaching micronova for high school. However, they depicted those as having developed, via the micronova, from a red giant star. Whatever the bibliographic source of this entry in that book, thank you as always for advancing the field. May better health visit your home and family for keeps.
Perhaps megalithic stones of size slide easily on fresh micro nova beads. Later, the glass ball bearings fracture into angular sand. Planned obsolescence. “Two words, son!. Novae Beads!” … the future of mining. You heard it here first. And yet, we all grew up with “ball bearings” as if we invented them for BICYCLES, skates, cars, skateboards, RV’s, UNICYCLES (why use two when one will do). Mining the “far side” of a tidally locked moon may yield vast quantities of pure elements in spherical form. Stake your claim.
