Caturday’s Astrophenia: 2014/03/01


This week, an odd new class of quantum object has been indentified, the U.S. airforce announces a new space surveillance program, a new report says that ‘climate change is more certain than ever,’ and 715 new exoplanets have been identified from data taken from the Kepler planet-finder telescope. Welcome to the month of Mars, a world to which I believe we shall one day send humans if we can manage the political will!

About Troythulu

I seek to learn through this site and others how to better my ability as a person and my skill at using my reason and understanding to best effect. I do fractal artwork as a hobby, and I'm working to develop it to professional levels, though I've a bit to go till I reach that degree of skill! This is a crazy world we're in, but maybe I can do a little, if only that, to make it a bit more sane than it otherwise would be.
