Was Arthur C. Clarke Right – Again?

Was Arthur C. Clarke Right – Again?
June 4, 2010

Arthur C. Clark, that great visionary always thought that life would be discovered on the moon, Europa. Titan will do in a pinch – but an odd one.

Titan is one of the most inhopitable “worlds” in the solar system.

“…Scientists had expected sunlight interacting with chemicals in the atmosphere to produce acetylene that falls down to coat Titan’s surface. But Cassini detected no acetylene there. Experts warn that there could be other explanations for the results. But taken together, they fulfil two important conditions necessary for methane-based life to exist. Nasa astrobiologist Chris McKay said: ‘If these signs do turn out to be a sign of life, it would be doubly exciting because it would represent a second form of life independent from water-based life on Earth.’ Scientists believe that when the Sun swells up, swallowing Earth, conditions could be ideal on a warmer Titan. Professor John Zarnecki, of the Open University, said: ‘We believe the chemistry is there for life to form. It just needs heat and warmth to kick-start the process.

Notes from a Volcano Junkie!

Notes from a Volcano Junkie!
April 18, 2010

This week Planet Earth caught a break, literally. The largest solar prominence in nearly 20 years exploded off the face of the Sun. Capable of massive electrical disruptions with something akin to a EMP, it hit the planet a couple of days ago. Then again, the fireworks in Iceland may be just enough to push the planet into a little ice age.

You Know That Man Made Climate Change Thingie…?

You Know That Man Made Climate Change Thingie…?

Once the ash cloud hits the upper atmosphere, start watching for some glorious sunsets!

Every once in awhile The Good Lord (and I am not taking about Obama) thumbs His nose at humanity, and proves in some rather strange way that He doth indeed harbor a sense of humor. While nothing humorous is going on with the current volcanic upset in Iceland, it does prove that His power is far greater than man’s. There is a wonderful irony here, rather like one of those Ten Commandments moments, a note to Al Gore, sort of a, “Umm, big guy, I’M THE ONE in charge!”

Something Strange in the Four Corners

Something Strange in the Four Corners
April 2, 2010

The Pink Flamingo does not approve of the theft of artifacts, no matter how old or how new. As a historian and a writer in the field of the “Wild West”, Wyatt Earp, and Tombstone, I deal with this any time I start doing research. While I am a good Republican, I find private collectors of history and archaeology to be somewhat distasteful in their hording of valuable historical material. I don’t care if they own it. I just think documents, photos, etc. should be made available for study. In my field, I eschew such collectors and have been denied valuable material. I do not approve of their methods which at times are lot quite kosher.
