Beans, toilet paper and plasmoids.

The 7th planet from the sun

Can fact truly be stranger than fiction?

Fact: Scientists have discovered something strange lurking in a 34-year-old batch of data from the Voyager 2 mission: a plasmoid. When people started hoarding beans and toilet paper, we ruthlessly mocked them. Did they know that 34 year old Voyager data would show the existence of a plasmoid from the 7th planet? (Plasmoids are bubbles of atmospheric material that are stripped away by their respective parent body’s magnetic field.)

Fact: Nerds Have Been Waiting a Lifetime to Write The Headline About This. About what? NASA confirms: There is gas leaking out of Uranus. Perhaps it’s time to get rid of the beans.

When I began this blog, I was a 70 year old man, with a young mind and a body trying to recover from a stroke, and my purpose for this whole blog thing is to provoke thinking, to ridicule reflex reaction, and provide a legacy to my children.
