Journal: NASA's exceptional discovery

Journal by chichilalescu

last wednesday, this news conference was announced: http://www.nasa.gov/home/hqnews/2010/nov/HQ_M10-157_Chandra_Update.html

I don't know how normal it is for NASA to use "exceptional" in their announcements, but it's a bit frustrating. Seeing as how the three people named to be part of the conference are all astrophysicists, I doubt they'll be talking about alien life (I assume they have biologists at NASA). Also, considering that they announced this a few days in advance, I don't think it will be life-changing news for the average joe and jane.

it's frustrating that they're using the word "exceptional". I saw somewhere the suggestion that this is just a social experiment.

anyway, seeing that I only found out about this, I thought there would be people not knowing about it. I liked the fraction of a second when I thought "maybe", so I thought others might find this fun too.

Nothing is faster than the speed of light ... To prove this to yourself, try opening the refrigerator door before the light comes on.
