I think space is super gay.
That is so bad ass. So much energy.
"NASA's John Grotzinger, principal investigator for the rover mission, announced in an interview with NPR the Mars' Curiosity rover has made a discovery that "is gonna be one for the history books. "

Parallel Worlds: A Journey Through Creation, Higher Dimensions, and the Future of the Cosmos by Michio Kaku. If you have watched any science show in the last ten years that talks about space then you have heard him speak... Asian guy with the geek-mullet. Its a very good read thus far... really getting an update on the discoveries in astronomy, physics, and cosmology that weren't really considered or taught just 20 years ago when I was in high school. I think what makes it flow so well for me is that it is written more as a history book than a science book.
That dude is pretty cool. I watch ALL of those space shows on science channel.
Hints of organics!!
What I am most curious about is if scientist look at Earth and only think this model is a model for what we know as life. Obviously, it is a model you can look to have duplicated as it would indicate earth "like" life, however I believe what we think we know is not really much at all considering the vastness of the universe.
"Astronomers studying a newborn star have caught a detailed glimpse of planets forming around it, revealing a never-before seen stage of planetary evolution."
Thanks for the heads up. The concept of parallel worlds and/or universes fascinates me, so I think I'll give this book a try.
this must be the place to bring up the 17B earth sized planets in the milky way. wrap your head around that number. now, how many are in the goldilocks zone?
