    My good self along with my partner will be attending our local Star Party record making attempt tonight. We broke the record three years ago and plan to do it again!

    I encourage all ASF members to take a break from watching charts and screens and get out there to help with the attempt. There are Star Parties happening all across Australia, it is fun and for those short, quiet 10 minutes when the attempt is in progress, you get to contemplate the universe, everything and all that is.

    Was great to be out under the stars, rugged up against the cold, chilly night with my special someone... and all the other loonies. :roflmao:

    An interesting discourse by a neuroscientist about the brain's role in translating sensory data when forming perceptions of reality:

    And here was me thinking the imbeciles who fail to put together a cogent position against my arguments had small brains, when in fact all it takes is losing a pinky!:D

    A pinky sized chunk of cerebellum, containing more neural connections than stars in our galaxy!

    So smaller brains could indeed explain the phenomena you are observing.

    Science ? Perhaps more Engineering.

    Came across this guy who produces scores of short effective explantions of engineering solutions/issues.
    Worth a look.

    Just to be picky, but the opening shots were of a Hawker Hurricane, not a Spitfire.

    Otherwise, a good vid.

    Jupiter didnt turn into a star because it isnt big enough to collapse and "ignite", a red dwarf would have started out a a cloud planet many many times bigger.
