Ronald Craig says:
"I'm starting this thread to post articles about Outer Space."

Because you think science fiction readers in the UK need you to keep them informed on Science news?

"I'm going to post non-fiction articles"

Then why isn't this in the Science forum?

"but if someone wants to post their favorite or new fiction books on this subject, go for it!"

Translation from Martinese: "Do the work of making this relevant to this forum for me, please!"

"THIRD ANNUAL 100-YEAR STARSHIP SYMPOSIUM OPENS IN HOUSTON"

What, no linky-link? How come?

Oh... I see:

http://100yss.org/symposium/2013

"PATHWAY TO THE STARS, FOOTPRINTS ON EARTH
19 - 22 September, 2013
Houston, Texas, USA"

Someone phone the Doctor and see if the Tardis is available for rent!

So... did you attend? Have you looked over the program? Got anything to DISCUSS about the symposium?

Another meaning-full thread on Marilyn Martin's personal blogspace on Amazon UK.

Bearman says:
I don't know bradders, why are you so proud to display attitudes that are described as blind bigoted ignorance. I suspect that there is a touch of lavender about you, and your bigotry (and extensive brood) is just a result of you trying to convince yourself of your own masculinity.

Marilyn, i think you need to build an extention on your house, if you are "outer space";)

CWB says "but would you really consider voluntarily allowing oneself to be neutered/vasectomised, a better example of 'real masculinity' ? "

What has taking responsibility for birth control got to do with masculinity?

Liquid waves just detected in the seas of Titan. Aliens are having a regatta there. How could you miss that, Marilyn?

Anita says:
Overly complicated to who?

And, look, what gives you any right to decide what is ludicrous in scientific explanation? Do you have any knowledge to understand those explanations? A degree, maybe?

Imagine if I went to some DNA research lab and said: you are all idiots, folks, your work is too complicated for me to understand, hence, ludicrous.

Some things *are* complicated, Marilyn. If you are too thick to understand them, it doesn't make them wrong

Ronald Craig says:
"As expected, some 'explanations' - like some of Helsdon's - are overly complicated and border on the ludicrous to stay within the 'officially accepted version' of the cosmos. But other stories DO present intelligent and logical answers to some of NASA's past mysteries."

In other words, the ones you don't like (probably because you don't understand them or they make your favorite "speculations" less plausible) are the former, right?

Either way, unless you cite specifics, you're just engaging in verbal flatulence. Man up for a change and say what explanations exactly you find "overly complicated" and "border[ing] on the ludicrous".

And if you've a problem with the "officially accepted version" of reality, the burden is UPON YOU to disprove it and/or offer an equally rigorous alternative version with greater explanatory power.

Unless I've missed something, you have yet to do either.

Marilyn - just one question. What makes you and your buddies think that the light is artificial? What makes it different from a natural reflection (yes, I looked at the picture by the way)?

Rest assured, I *will* resist temptation to add everything else I want to
