a large gas bubble in space, huh? hope that thing doesn't blow!

hey, my first FIRST in ages! :)

How did my EX get into space??

Lyman? This Lyman?

Dave,were there gas bubbles involved back in college too??

*snork* @ P

What they haven't discovered yet is that these filaments are part of an even bigger structure: The Largest Lightbulb in the Universe

Also, Alpha Blobs

I love these complex, technical terms that scientists use to describe stuff:

blob !!!

"Some of the gas bubbles are up to 400,000 light years across"

THat must have been one big honkin' burrito...

I'm gonna throw my hat in for "Cosmic Amoeba."

How many people besides me think these scientists just MAKE THIS STUFF UP?

I mean, who's gonna know? How many astrophysicists (that is hard to type, BTW) are there, really, in the world?

I think there are relatively few (that is my theory of relativity - HA!) and they amuse each other and themselves by dreaming up increasingly weirder hypotheses that NOBODY CAN DISPROVE so the grant money can keep-a-rollin-in.

Not to say I am anti-edukashun. But for Pete's sake, how about some real-life practical stuff, please?

I found this link.

On the upside, I think "Positron Annihilation" WBAGNFARB.

I am done.

Now Cosmic Blob would be an excellent sequel to Snakes on a Plane.

Cosmic Bob, on the other hand, sounds like a bad opening act for Cheech & Chong.

two posts in one day! I am basking.

Tha Alpha Blob? Does that mean it orders the other cosmic blobs around? Or do they have to sniff its butt?

"An enormous amoeba-like structure 200 million light-years wide and made up of galaxies and large bubbles of gas is the largest known object in the universe, scientists say."

Uh, they could have saved millions of research dollars & just came over to my house & took a good look at my husband after he's had a few burritos & cervesas!!!!

i

there, that fixed it

The filaments were seen using the Subaru and Keck telescopes? How did they get to Mauna kea? And where was security?
