I hope we get to see images soon from the Italian cube satellite that was watching from a distance.

Cool, I searched last night and couldn't find anything at the time. Actually those are underwhelming, I was expecting sharper photos. :lol: :scratch: Still pretty awesome though.

This makes the death star seem like a bb gun :) :shock: Speed is one of the aspects of nature that is harder to wrap your mind around than deep time. A pulsar can spin around 8 times per second while going 1000 km per second! Some hummingbirds are capable of flapping their wings 200 times per second. A woodchuck can sloppily eat a carrot 2/3rds of it's length in under 5 minutes. And then reach for more. :mrgreen:
