Saw this ‘Irrational Element Table’ just now and it made the iced tea come up my nose!

I love nerd humour!
Thanks to the amazing Crispian Jago for this gem.

Godzilla planets? 12 billion year old gamma rays? Evidence of the planet that crashed into Earth and caused our moon to form?
This is the kind of stuff scientists were doing last week!
Here are the links to the articles. Please check them out!

Thanks once again to the gang over at IFLS.
While the rest of us were gearing up for summer and firing up the barbecues and whatever it is we do in anticipation of summer, my lovely geeks and nerdlings in the world of science were coming up with stuff like this!

They’ve done it again, kiddie-winkers.
While we were out planning our gardens and trying to figure out how to hurt ourselves with fireworks, the devoted geeks and nerdlings in the world of science have come up with these findings!

Well done, folks. Very well done indeed.
The world owes you a huge debt of gratitude!

The NASA site ‘Astronomy Picture of the Day‘ continues to blow me away.
This is the photo for this morning, February 27, 2014.

Here is NASA’s blurb…
Explanation: Venus now appears as planet Earth’s brilliant morning star standing above the eastern horizon before dawn. For most, the silvery celestial beacon rose in a close pairing with an old crescent Moon on February 26. But seen from locations in western Africa before sunrise, the lunar crescent actually occulted or passed in front of Venus, also in a crescent phase. Farther to the east, the occultation occurred during daylight hours. In fact, this telescopic snapshot of the dueling crescents was captured just before the occultation began under an afternoon’s crystal clear skies from Yunnan Province, China. The unforgettable scene was easily visible to the naked eye in broad daylight.
If you don’t already do so, please consider making NASA’s Astronomy Picture of the Day part of your daily online routine.
You won’t regret it.
