    Beautiful, but only physics:

    Green or brownish-red, depending on the amount of energy absorbed.”

    Beautiful, but only physics

    That’s a bland description that would apply to anything in the universe.

    That’s essentially the point of physics. It is everything except magic.

    Yeah, this is so not as cool as an airplane. Let’s see more of those!

    And;
    A famous quote of Clarke’s is often cited: “One of the great tragedies of mankind is that morality has been hijacked by religion.”

    Anyone else see it in person? If you have seen it IRL physics would be the last thing on your mind. Especially the red and blue auroras. Though it’s been a long time since you could see something that beautiful in Anchorage. Hate to say it atkinson but just explaining it as physics is like just “saying” the bible has any truth to it.

    Yes – last thing on your mind indeed… because that’s deadly-deadly radiation! Might as well bend over and kiss your ass good-bye!
