Im bored in class and I figured that this site could use some entertainment rather then the regular amounts of heaping bullsh** that you usually find on this site at this hour.

How it works is that you find a weird article or even just a weird passage on wikipedia, and post it in this thread for everyone else to be enlightened on.

For example: http://en.wikipedia.org...

"Project A119, also known as "A Study of Lunar Research Flights", was a top-secret plan developed in 1958 by the United States Air Force. The aim of the project was to detonate a nuclear bomb on the Moon which would help in answering some of the mysteries in planetary astronomy and astrogeology"

Now you post one :D

This article is no joke. The US originally discovered gamma ray bursts when they were checking to see if the soviets were performing nuclear weapon testing in space.

And well... They found that the sky was like Christmas tree, sparkling with loads of gamma ray bursts, obviously not the soviets, something much, much stranger. The GRBS were so strong and so distant that annihilating the entire mass content of the universe in a spherical explosion wouldn't create an explosion as bright as a GRB... Thus, taking nuclear explosions in space seriously almost turned our laws of physics upside down :-p

If the sky's the limit then why do we have footprints on the Moon? I'm shooting my aspirations for the stars.

I already knew about that, surprisingly.

This is straight out of a James Bond movie. Probably the most awesome thing I've ever found on Wikipedia.

Shone on the eyes of man, who had ceased to marvel and worship"
