Other Worlds

Kepler Explores the Solar System -- not ours.

I'm a science nerd - a space information junkie - one of those people who genuinely delights in these sorts of discoveries (link above).

And a bit closer to home:

Jupiter lost a stripe in its atmosphere.

I'm not sure why it happened and I don't think scientists know either.

Oh WOW! I'm always utterly fascinated with outter space. I guess it always reminds me how trivial and insignificant the world, and our problems, are.

Azra - it's a big universe and as Carl Sagan once put it, 'our planet is like a speck of dust -- a mote in a sunbeam'.

However to us, it's an important mote of dust.

It happened BECAUSE. Don't you know nothing?

Jupiter must have global warming!

I never thought to ask Al Gore -- but I'm sure he'd know. Al knows EVERYTHING! (just ask him)
