Jan 10, 2010: Super Earth

Quote:
US astronomers have detected the second-smallest exoplanet ever discovered with a mass just four times heavier than the Earth, adding to a growing number of low-mass planets dubbed "super-earths".


So all you disgruntled people, like Spuck, have a place to go.

Quote:
The exoplanet, a name given to planets outside our solar system, has been dubbed HD156668b, and is located around 80 light years from Earth in the direction of the Hercules constellation. A light year is roughly 9460 billion kilometres. The planet orbits around its parent star in just over four days.
BuBye.

That picture looks like Walt Disney's phlegm.



SPUCK  Monday Jan 11 05:06 AM

I will not be moving to some damn place called HD156668b!
How the hell am I supposed to pronounce that?!

"Yeah Mom, I'm moving to HD156668b."
"Yes it's called HDonehundredfiftysixthousandsixhundredsixtyeight b."
"That's right Mom, b! "

"No!! That's not the street address!!"




There aren't that many Home Depots either.
When they find a place with a better name - then I'll go!


------------------------------------
There are now over 400 exoplanets known.

Unlike Spuck, some of us will stay here on Earth and remain nice and gruntled.

I really like their excitement - "We discovered an exoplanet!".

Great, except it has no water, the temperature never gets below 1,200C, the atmosphere has no oxygen in it, and - oh yeah - it would take us hundreds of years to get there.

Aside from these and dozens of other little details, it's JUST PERFECT!! :p :p :p

We come from a blue planet light-years away
Where everything multiplies at an amazing rate
We're out here in the universe buying real estate
Hope we haven't gotten here too late

[chorus:]
We're humans from earth
We're humans from earth
You have nothing at all to fear
I think we're gonna like it here

We're looking for a planet with atmosphere
Where the air is fresh and the water clear
With lots of sun like you have here
Three or four hundred days a year

[chorus]

Bought Manhatten for a string of beads
Brought along some gadgets for you to see
Heres a crazy little thing we call TV
Do you have electricity?

[chorus]

I know we may seem pretty strange to you
But we got know-how and a golden rule
We're here to see manifest destiny through
Ain't nothing we can't get used to

We're humans from earth
We're humans from earth

OMG! Someone stole Spuck's gruntle?


spudcon  Tuesday Jan 12 11:13 AM

I'm not sorry about your gruntle.



Pete Zicato  Tuesday Jan 12 12:02 PM

♪ ♫ I've got plenty of gruntle. And gruntle's plenty for me.... ♫ ♪



xoxoxoBruce  Tuesday Jan 12 08:15 PM

Yeah, he's got plenty of gruntle, and enough sense of humor to know I was goofing with him.
