Walkabout the Galaxy
black holes, Ice Cube neutrino observatory
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, a little neutrino left a very large black hole headed straight for a point in space that would be occupied by the Ice Cube neutrino observatory at the Earth's south pole just in time to detect it! This is the story of that neutrino, Scrabble(TM) competitions, neutrino trivia, and a very embarrassing sponsor message. We're all very sorry about that sponsor message, but they paid, so we honored the contract, okay?!
Odd Bodily Secretions
Step aside pee, poo, and snot. You've had your time in the limelight. Don't let the cutesy names of "sleep", "ear wax", "belly button lint", and "toe jam" deceive you. What's the difference between the gunk in the corner of your eye and a good ol'-fashioned nose booger? Ever wonder what ear wax is? ‘cause it ain't wax! While you're pondering the mysteries of the universe with the astroquarks, here's a question more mystifying and profound than multiverses and quantum physics: would you rather put an eye-booger in your ear, or ear wax in your nose? Odd bodily secretions: for the real big puzzles in life.
