Is it thursday already?
August 19, 2010
Really? It’s fucking thursday? How the hell did it get to be thursday? I’ve been so busy this week I don’t even know what day it is anymore. So yeah, that’s why I haven’t posted in almost a week. I’m even short on time right now, so I’m just going to share a few tidbits that I came across the past couple of days, but didn’t have time to blog about.
- Next year, Neptune will complete its first full revolution around the Sun since its first actual telescopic observation in 1846. This will happen on July 12, 2011… why the big deal? Well, there was some misinformation floating around about it happening in the next few days, and I tweeted about it, so I thought I should clear that up. So on July 11, 2011, we should all have a happy new year party for Neptune! (Via Discovery News)
- As I mentioned a few weeks ago, one of my favorite geek/scientist psuedo-celebrities, Dr. Phil Plait, is about to become a bonafide celebrity when his own TV show, Phil Plait’s Bad Universe, airs on the Discovery Channel. The air date has been set, and it’s much sooner than you think- August 29th. So be sure to tune in at 10pm ET/9pm CT to see Plait take a Mythbusters-esque approach to debunking bogus claims about various ways the earth could be destroyed. It will be a 3-part series, but could be extended(Via Plait’s blog, Bad Astronomy)
