Submission + - Our early solar system may have been home to a fifth giant planet->

sciencehabit writes: A cluster of icy bodies in the same region as Pluto could be proof that our early solar system was home to a fifth giant planet, according to new research. That planet may have “bumped” Neptune during its migration away from the sun 4 billion years ago, causing the ice giant to jump into its current orbit and scattering a cluster of its satellites into the Kuiper belt in the outer solar system.

Comment Mitch Daniels former Gov -- did he outsource this? (Score 1) 60

Governor Mitch Daniels outsourced the unemployment database, and slashed the budget for job training for the unemployed in an attempt to keep Indiana "in the black". As a result, there are fewer IT jobs in Indiana, and those who are trying to jumpstart their career are generally-speaking, FUCKED. I wonder if any shortcuts were taken with their statewide medical patients database? It wouldn't surprise me.

Is it a drone, capable of flying by itself, or is it a radio controlled vehicle that must be piloted?

Was it lingering over the guy's property or passing through his airspace?

Clearly the pilot did not take evasive action. Being able to shoot it makes it seem like he was pestering the homeowner.
