Quote from: Old Seer on September 18, 2023, 02:34:10 PMI have no reason to believe the climate change claims. I see no significant difference from my yute to today. Where I am it's been a normal summer. And now I'm supposed to accept global boiling.
Quote from: Asmodean on October 19, 2023, 02:58:20 PMSpeaking of Oz, Puds, what be the deal with that Voice of Parliament referendum thing? I really ought to just look it up, but... Keep forgetting. What's going on?

QuoteAccidents can happen: during a November 1 spacewalk, US astronauts Jasmin Moghbeli and Loral O'Hara "inadvertently lost" a tool bag, according to NASA. That tool bag is now in orbit, and can even be viewed from Earth.The bag has been given its own satellite catalog number, and has also been caught on video by stargazers.According to the website EarthSky, the dropped item is as bright as a 6th-magnitude star – not quite bright enough to be seen with the naked eye, though it should be visible through binoculars.That visibility is due to the bag being white and reflective. If you want to try and spot it, your best bet is to first find the ISS. The object was roughly five minutes ahead of the space station on November 11, a timing that should stretch as the days pass.Luckily, the astronauts were not hindered in completing their spacewalk tasks, which included adjusting a cable and replacing a bearing on a solar panel, and the toolbag was not needed for the rest of the mission.After assessing the bag's trajectory, NASA doesn't deem it to be a threat to the ISS or its occupants.Over the next few months, the tool bag is expected to circle closer to Earth before eventually disintegrating in the atmosphere – so catch it while you can, if you want to see a unique bit of space junk.[Continues . . .]
