Astronomers have found two red objects in our Asteroid belt. Big fucking deal, right? Actually, big fucking deal! Them fuckers shouldn’t be there, and they may actually explain our early system. You two red objects! You helpful fuckers!
The aptly named planetoid Farfarout is officially the most distant object in the solar system. Like, listen. This motherfucker truly is far out. It was discovered in 2018, and now its status has been confirmed.
Astronomers have found Farout, friends. It’s the most-distant known object in our solar system. And you’re itching to ask, what exactly is Farout? They ain’t fucking sure! Maybe a dwarf planet! Or, dare we say it, perhaps Planet X? None the less, we found it, and it’s damn far away. About 11.15 billion miles from the sun.
Hey, in about a million years a star is going to graze our solar system. I hope whatever is existing on this Rotting Marble gets to appreciate how cool that is, given that we as a species have, what. Thirty years left, tops?
AstronomerWizards, using their WizardryMathematics, have apparently (maybe) found a ninth planet in our solar system. One way out past Pluto, which orbits the sun every 15,000 years.
CHALKING THIS UP TO SPECULATIVE SCIENCE. BUT SPECULATION IS FUN. AND SO IS SCIENCE. SO LET’S DOOO THISSS.
Guys. Guys. Guys! Seriously. It’s serious this time. For now. It’s like, legit. Voyager 1 is the first human-made spacecraft to leave our solar system. Those other times we thought it it? Forget them. This is legit. Stop grimacing with skepticism. This is the truth.
[Update: It hasn’t. I frigging knew it.]
Voyager 1 has totally left the solar system. This time it is for real. Right? I feel as though I have written nineteen different posts about Voyager 1, and whether or not it has crossed the cosmic Rubicon Now comes a paper that has confirmed the spectacular leap for mankind. We get to keep it this time, right? Please?
Fare the well, Voyager 1. You’re currently hauling ass through the “magnetic highway”, as you approach the limits of our solar system. Keep in mind our wonderful moments together. Recall, if you will, the time we built your ungrateful ass. Fawn over the concept of being the first object we’ve sent out of our solar system. Dearest regards.
Our fat brains can’t really process things. Consider Saturn’s sheer enormity in comparison to us. Then try and comprehend how small in relation to the sun. Then appreciate how fucking small the Sun is in the grand scheme. Nosebleed incoming!
