        Funny, I don't see yermom on this diagram. -mrauser
        \_ She's behind Uranus.
        \_ The scientists were unable to measure her bulk as yo'mama so fat,
           no light escapes her graviational pull.
           \_ Oh come on.  This is such a lame, geeky yo'mama joke that it'd
              get you beaten up immediately anywhere but here.
              \_ Yo' mama so fat, her son revolves around her.
              \_ Mainly because we can't reach you.
           \_ Her black hole's attraction is too strong.
        \_ Carl Sagan did that better in Cosmos.

        "It'll pass within the moon's distance from Earth - closer than the

12/2    'Starry, starry, starry night: Star count may triple'
        http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101202/ap_on_sc/us_sci_starry_night
        'So the number of stars in the universe "is equal to all the cells in
        the humans on Earth, a kind of funny coincidence," Conroy said'
        Another coincidence is that 1 mole = 6.02 * 10^23.  So the number of
        stars = # of molecules in 1 gram of H2 gas.

12/4    "This time system adjusts for shifts in relative time which occur
        due to the vessel's speed and space warp capability. It has little
        relationship to Earth's time as we know it. One hour aboard the USS
        Enterprise at different times may equal as little as three Earth
        hours. The stardates specified in the log entry must be computed
        against the speed of the vessel, the space warp, and its position

        http://www.csua.org/u/wcr
        No wonder the UC is short in funding.  Just put a damn lid on!
        \_ Before you complain "Now that there are studies for everything,
           some day we'll hear about studiets on studies", please note that the
           Pentagon is always one step ahead of you:

        \_ mm, porndog
           \_ Very deep throat.  (See sign at background.)

Planets and stars size in scale, Uranus isn't shown but it's barely bigger than Neptune. Marked as spam Reply Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you made 2 mistakes with the sizes. In your movie you say Arcturus is smaller then the previous star Pollux, but we see it is bigger.
