Case Closed on All Secrets of the Universe*

*sounds better than actual story

i just bettered myself by reading this Discovery story about star dust and outerspace explosions.

this was one of my favorite lines:
“Such explosions of very large stars could possibly account for most of the dust in the universe, Rho said, albeit with a large margin of uncertainty, since accounting for star dust is no easy task.”

understatement of the epoch!

also this one:
“‘Cass-A is a wonderful place to look,’ said Dwek. ‘It’s relatively young and its [dust] hasn’t been mixed with the interstellar medium. It hasn’t lost its identity.'”

this one is very adult stars are boring, young stars have so much more personality! and Dwek is such a great name. Rho, also for the record, is quite a name.

this article wins my first and last Good (Article) Friday award.

FINALLY, LOOKIT THIS. splendazzlement.
