WHY ARE NONE OF YOU FUCKERS FLIPPING SHIT?!?

NASA HAS DECLARED PLUTO A PLANET AGAIN

IT HAS MOONS!!!!! IT HAS MOONS!!!!!!!

WHAT. WHAT! PLUTO YOU FUCKING DID IT!

VIVA LA PLUTO, YOU DID IT!!!

THE UNDERDOG

I can’t find a source. Does anyone have any? I won’t believe it until I get a source.

No they didn’t. an audience poll at the end of an unofficial debate between astronomers said that people think it’s a planet. that’s it.

Shhhh, maybe if we let them think Pluto is a planet again, they’ll finally shut the hell up about it.

Internal structures of main sequence stars, convection zones with arrowed cycles and radiative zones with red flashes. To the left a low-mass red dwarf, in the center a mid-sized yellow dwarf and at the right a massive blue-white main sequence star.

Star types. Low-mass stars, less than half a solar mass, are fully convective from core to the surface and thus of uniform composition. This is because their low temperatures make their opacity to photons high. In intermediate-mass stars such as the sun, radiation transport works well enough in the core that convection does not take place; a stagnant core develops, surmounted by a convective region. These stars’ surfaces do not include fusion products from the core, but retain the same composition as the cloud from which they formed. At 1.5 solar masses, the convective layer has almost disappeared and the star is essentially fully radiative. Above 1.5 solar masses, the CNO cycle contributes the majority of the energy production. Because this cycle is much more sensitive to temperature, the star’s energy production is more tightly concentrated in the center, and this causes the development of a convective core.

Horned guan (Oreophasis derbianus)

The horned guan is a large, approximately 85 cm long, turkey-like bird. is distributed in humid mountain forests of southeast Mexico-(Chiapas) and Guatemala of Central America. Its diet consists mainly of fruits, green leaves and invertebrates. This species is the only survivor of a very ancient lineage of cracids that has been evolving independently from all other living members of this family for at least 20, possibly as much as 40 million years. Due to ongoing habitat loss, small population size, limited range and hunting in some areas, the horned guan is evaluated as Endangered on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

They knew he was big, but Manitoba’s Bruce the mosasaur is now recognized as the largest mosasaur in the world.
The Canadian Fossil Discovery Centre in Morden, about 125 km southwest of Winnipeg, has been awarded a Guinness World Record for the fossil.
Bruce measures just over 13 metres (43 feet) in length.  Read more…
