SPACE: Star-Hopping and Stargazing

A too cool for school picture of “Mr. Spock”, aka, Leonard Nimoy!

I’ve always thought of it as a debris field of two or more moons that had collided. Any planetary “dust” inside the field was probably drawn there when moon chunks struck the planet’s surface or combusted while heading into the atmosphere. Just my thunks…

Robert Zimmerman: Astronomers find largest explosion yet discovered</a

Using a large variety of telescopes, astronomers have confirmed the discovery of the largest and longest explosion ever discovered, dubbed AT2021lwx and more than eight billion light years away yet ten times brighter than any supernovae previously recorded while lasting years rather than months.

Any theories at this moment about the cause of this explosion are very tentative, pending acquisition of more data. What is certain is that the tools of astronomers are far more sophisticated today, allowing for such discoveries that were once impossible. And it also appears that the existence of thousands of Starlink satellites in orbit did nothing to hinder this research.

My thoughts are that as the photo was taken from the ground the anomalies (“UFOs”) are possibly Earth-orbiting satellites/space debris that only appear to be orbiting near the moon *shrug*…

As much as I love “Interstellar” for its rigid science-backed premise about space travel, time and gravity … and the transcendence of ‘love’ being another physical factor in man’s existence beyond life and death, I equally enjoy the incredible challenges of time perception in “Arrival”. And therein too what no other sci-fi story has really attempted to tackle, the near humanly impossible ability to communicate with aliens should we/they make contact.

TWD Trivia: They were never ever called “zombies” in the books or any of the spin-off shows because when the apocalypse (another term not used) hit it had never been imagined, hence, so named. And “The Walking Dead” doesn’t refere exactly to the “zombies” but to the living…
