Showing moon orbit

Hello. I was going to post this in Bugs, but I don't think it's a bug... it's likely my computer. I don't recall this ever being a topic, but you folks will know better than I. I noticed something odd today in the display of the moon's orbit (enabled), a quirky little bend. The link below leads to t...

Re: Faster than light???????

Why not faster than light?! We've already shown light can be slowed down* (and with practical applications for it as well**), so why not sped up as well? * http://news.harvard.edu/gazette/1999/02.18/light.html ** http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/09/100905161910.htm This makes me wonder abou...

Re: Could Pluto have a giant gash in it?

Sorry, I don't mean to stir the pot here, but... ageyer kept referring to HMIR as a " technique ". After reading this thread I was curious so I did some searching on Google, I could not find any such technique. What I do find is a High Temperature Midwave Infrared (HMIR) Camera Engine manu...

NGC 2442 / NGC 2443

When I view NGC 2442 I see two galaxies (Celestia v1.6.1). Is this a result of the catalogue listing the two arms of this galaxy separately? My guess is 'yes'. Anomaly/bug/annoyance?

I live in New Jersey, so far it's not too bad, a lot of rain. I just got back from the beach a short while ago, took some pictures.

Re: Swine Flu

As to your liver enzymes: an elevated GammaGT (aka GGT) value often points to somewhat excessive alcohol habits ;-) But of course there may well be other causes for abnormalities of the liver data.

Re: Swine Flu

I guess it was inevitable, I got sick, but I'm not sure it was H1N1. I had light fever, aches in neck and shoulders with enlarged lymph glans, I could not swallow, and my chest was "gurgling". My throat was the worst, not being able to swallow, not even tea, it hurt so damned much. Whateve...

Re: Swine Flu

I'd heard something the other day about the "college environment" having something to do with the large number of cases in the age ranges you've been noting concentrations in.

And, hello all once again. I'd been away doing various things over the summer. Nice to see you all again. :D
