Journal salvorHardin's Journal: Not that I'm bitter or anything...

Just submitted my third and final story to Slashdot, which was promptly rejected. I was probably too slow off the mark, and it's already been submitted by about 3,489 other people, but hey - here it is anyway. When the story does get posted by A.N.Other, I'll at least have already RTFAs, so I'll be able to pass myself off as intelligent ;-) - or failing that- 'Insightful, Informative or Interesting'.

A team at Cardiff University has discovered a Galaxy comprised of Dark Matter. The Galaxy, Virgo-HI21, a mass of hydrogen atoms a hundred million times the mass of the Sun, the BBC reports. The galaxy was detected using the Lovell Telescope at Jodrell Bank, and can only be 'seen' using radio telescopes, as there are no stars emitting light. More info in the New Scientist article and the PhysOrg page.

The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows. - Frank Zappa
