    How much BULL SHIT do "they" think people can take?!?!?

    Todays image at APOD and what it reads, , , ,

    "Explanation: Why would a cloud appear to be different colors? A relatively rare phenomenon known as iridescent clouds can show unusual colors vividly or a whole spectrum of colors simultaneously. These clouds are formed of small water droplets of nearly uniform size. When the Sun is in the right position and mostly hidden by thick clouds, these thinner clouds significantly diffract sunlight in a nearly coherent manner, with different colors being deflected by different amounts. Therefore, different colors will come to the observer from slightly different directions. Many clouds start with uniform regions that could show iridescence but quickly become too thick, too mixed, or too far from the Sun to exhibit striking colors. The above iridescent cloud was photographed in 2009 from the Himalayan Mountains in Nepal, behind the 6,600-meter peak named Thamserku. "

    well I got my boots on and a shovel handy...lol how about this one... how the heck would they know the composition.....

    The alien planet, a so-called "super-Earth," is called 55 Cancri e and was discovered in 2004 around a nearby star in our Milky Way galaxy. After estimating the planet's mass and radius, and studying its host star's composition, scientists now say the rocky world is composed mainly of carbon (in the form of diamond and graphite), as well as iron, silicon carbide, and potentially silicates.

    At least a third of the planet's mass is likely pure diamond

    Another example of "feed them crap", I got fed-up with that some time ago. It's almost an insult reading that APOD description.

    In the nineties I asked a USAF insider why NASA craft had to re-enter the atmosphere all fiery and scary fast instead of slow and safe.

    He gave me A BS answer which was "If they did not come in fast they might bounce off the atmosphere and get lost in space"

    Later I met a NASA orbital mechanics tech and asked her. She said: " We dont have a re-fueling station out there and they need more fuel to slow down, so they have to come in fast."

    Later on, I learned more and realized the USAF person was a BET. I think he actually did not know the correct answer because it was no big secret to be hiding from anyone.

    How dumb can some BETs be??
