THIS IS STELLAR NEWS YOU GUYS. AS YOU KNOW I'm a little obsessed with the great vastness we float about in. This is some of the most exciting news for me recently, and the fact that it captured SPACE NOISE is even more awesome. The sound is just ionized gas, sadly not aliens but still really neat. I can't wait to learn more about space beyond our solar system! At this point in my life I figured I'd be on my own spaceship by now but this will have to do until that happens.

http://...nbcnews.com/...nds-interstellar-space-8C11147747 (article with sound clip for space noise)

Anyways lets just talk about how neat space is and also this. I'm really excited for comet ISON! I hope it doesn't fizzle out in the sun and we actually get the show that has been hyped up all year!

I want to see a BEAUTIFUL comet so bad! I mean, truth be told I did get SUPER spoiled by comet HALE-Bop so.... you know two in my lifetime is probably being greedy BUT I LOVE SPACE SHIT.

John and I were joking about how much we love each other and I said "To the end of the universe....which at this point Voyager might find" and then I thought about it and said "What if Voyager found our love and sent it back to Earth... would people mistake it for Aliens?!" because you know that is how everyonme thinks right? RIGHT?

I wish I wasn't so over this news because it IS really cool. Kinda got burnt out by Voyager leaving the solar system every year for a while now.

For reference, here's an xkcd from the last time Voyager 'left' the solar system: http://xkcd.

Weird/Awesome Fact: One of the remaining functioning systems runs on an eight-track tape. Haha. Voyager: the only functioning nuclear powered eight-track system in interstellar space.
PS: wow catastrophic linkfail. try again: http://xkcd.com/1189/

the reason I posted this article Nategri is that it ACTUALLY has left the solar system, it's not just speculation (like the past few years). It's a huge deal. I wish you weren't so over this exciting space news! Bums me out. Also how are you not pumped about space noises? Well I guess someone who has become jaded about space news maybe doesn't find the awesomeness in it. (seriously though?)

I remember getting to see HALE-Bop and WHATEVER IMA BE GREEDY AS I WANT I MUST SEE ALL THE COMETS, AND SPAAAAACE!! (Also I'd really like to see what happened to a universe wide game of telephone to bring it back to Earth and have them try and interpret that)

I dunno when I saw "space noise" I immediately just thought "data adjusted to be presented to human ears" and kinda meh'd about it. However looking at it, it's kinda cool because it actually is vibrational, and naturally occurs inside human frequency response. But stilllll you would need some wacky ears to "hear" it, and things aren't sounds unless ears can hear them. Pretty much just a publicity grab by the scientists.

My day-to-day involves space, so yeah, I am pretty jaded. You don't even wanna know how bored I am about exoplanets.
PS: So bored. I am so bored about them.

We should have a Nate's Space Hour where you tell us all the boring shit about space and then the really cool shit no one else talks about. I would listen for hours.
