What is your subspecialty in astonomy? Do you think the probabability of getting a radio signal indicating intelligent life, is higher or lower, from ellipitical galaxies? And why. Is carbon a metal? Discuss what Z-1 means to you personally.
Astonishing. No relevance to my post and an obvious attempt to derail the thread. However as i'm just a naive little WR contributor Ill fall for it.
* What is your subspecialty in astonomy?
Hmm ... Specialty ... "an instrument under seal, a sealed contract". ??? Wait! American spelling of speciality. (I've had to learn English; its a bit hard having to learn American as well.) I observe variable stars and occultations by the moon and asteroids.
* Do you think the probabability of getting a radio signal indicating intelligent life, is higher or lower, from ellipitical galaxies?
No idea what ellipitical
galaxies are. But probability higher or lower than what? Of Somey becoming a steward? Hard to say. I do know that we dont have the technology to detect radio signals indicating intelligent life from other galaxies and doubt that we will in the near future.
* Is carbon a metal?
Of course. As you know perfectly well, in astronomy all elements except hydrogen and helium are regarded as metals.
* Discuss what Z-1 means to you personally.
It's a model helicopter. http://www.deviltronics.com/product/41/pic...nook-helicopter
Now is it my turn to ask irrelevant questions?
* Which element is named in honour of a Danish scientist?
* Which Danish mathematician popularised the term "superellipse"?
* Whose grandmothers had the maiden names Rosenkranz and Guldenstern?
* What do you think of Danish singer Christine Milton?
