    Cool There's a "hydrogen wall" at the edge of our solar system

    Wow! Supposedly where our solar winds die out and interstellar matter trying to get in builds up.
    What New Horizons definitely sees, the researchers reported in a paper published Aug. 7 in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, is some extra ultraviolet light the kind the researchers would expect such a wall of galactic hydrogen to produce. That replicates an ultraviolet signal the two Voyager spacecraft NASA's farthest-traveling probes, which launched in the late 1970s spotted all the way back in 1992.

    Proof that walls do indeed work to keep aliens out.

    Maybe it's meant to keep us IN?

    Sounds like a possible fuel source.
    Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Nations and peoples who forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms. Robert Heinlein

    I've DVR'd a Deep Space 9 episode where Quark returns to Ferengi to learn his Mom's fooling around with the Grand Negus. Should be fun to watch.

    Sure enough, here it is.



    Now for the $64 dollar question, why does it have a water outlet?
