Excerpt:

Iapetus [eye-AP-i-tus] is the seventeenth of Saturn's thirty three currently known moons, and the third largest. It was named after a Titan -- the son of Uranus and the father of Prometheus and Atlas (the latter said to be the “fathers of Mankind”). Thus, in Greek myth, Iapetus was also an ancestor … a progenitor… of “Homo Sapiens Sapiens” ….

More like, the models are completely and utterly wrong given what we know about the laws of physics, and nothing we can directly observe can explain it. Also, there are problems with larger structures that can't be explained, so it's not just rotation curves. There are many good reasons to think it's a particle. It's probably some combination of dark matter and a modification of gravity, though, since, as I said, solving rotation curves with MOND does not explain things like the gravitational lensing of galaxy clusters.

Dubious definition of exploration. The percentage of the sky that has been imaged does not translate directly to how much has been "explored."
>>
>>13745881
what have explored the oceans and the seas not a lot at all and space is just a bunch of useless shit right now. except for some of the gasses - we cant even get to another planet, we cant live on the moon, weve been up there... whats the point?
makes you wonder what they really did find down there in the ocean. what they saw to make them so scared.

we have NOT explored a lot of the ocean

There are more hydrocarbons on Titan than we have oxygen in our atmosphere to fully burn.

Haha I know man, space is soooo cool!!! Ugh, man, I just. Sometimes, I just like, I can't even, you know? And Reddit...pssh, don't even get me started on THOSE guys, know what I mean? Here at 4cham we really know the way things are. I'm like you too, I'm not one of those reddit DWEEBS haha. Anyways though, space facts, right!? Like, it just blows my mind.

And here you go man, picture associated (haha get it?). Feel free to take this one by the way dude, it's all yours!

How can a planet be so fucking based?
I don't understand why anyone would want to go on Mars, Titan is the real shit.
>>
>>13748475
Scientists studying Titan are apparently overwhelmed by businessmen trying to figure out how to transport vast amounts of hydrocarbons back to Earth.
>At 500,000 km2,[2] Kraken Mare is thought to be the largest body of liquid in Titan's north polar region.[1] Its status as a sea of hydrocarbons (mainly liquid methane) was identified by radar imagery. Kraken Mare is thought to be larger than the Caspian Sea on Earth. Analyses of the Cassini radar altimeter data used as a sounder have shown that the main body of Kraken Mare is at least 100 m deep and likely deeper than 300 m.[3]
The gravity well isn't too bad but the return journey is by any account long.

Hoag's Object is a non-typical galaxy of the type known as a ring galaxy. This kind of galaxy is very rare—only 1 in 10,000 becomes a collisional ring. Despite this, if you look closely at the picrel, you can spot another ring galaxy in the distance, inside the big one. Truly a GET on a cosmic scale.

Now, imagine an alien civilization born out of such a place. After billions of years of evolution, their species would gaze at the night sky through their telescopes, and discover that for some reason their home galaxy is very different from all the others. Perhaps there is something special about them after all. It wasn't so long ago that their ancestors had proven the heliocentric theory, to the dismay of many. Suddenly, there it is again—the inescapable feeling that the world revolves around them. Their home forms a circle, an ancient symbol of unity and perfection. Maybe it's a sign from above, an invitation to spread beyond this world, to see what else is out there.

>>13739137
Looking from the outside you will never see an objects actually pass the event horizon of the black hole, the fall will become slower and slower while the light emited/reflected by the objects becomes more and more redshifted untill it reaches energy levels of the microwave background and you cant detedt it anymore
It happens because of time dialation inside massive gravity field of the black hole
>>
>>13750069
Close but not quite, the carbon chains are much shorter so it is like lighter gas that has been cooled until it is liquid. This can easily be use as fuel here on Earth.

So even if it isn't quite space oil it sure is space fuel, and people have seriously discussed transporting this to Earth orbit to use as an orbiting fuel depot for space ships travelling inside the solar system. It would be a huge spherical tank, bright white to reflect sunlight and would look a wee bit like the Deathstar.

>Their home forms a circle, an ancient symbol of unity and perfection.
We, on the other hand, got the Axis of Evil, to make us feel special.
>>
>>13751533
No, you'd just see the object experience massive time dilation until it literally aged out of existence
Or rather it would get spaghettied and then the particles would age out of existence while redshifting into microwave

>>13752026
If you can bring fuel to earth orbit economically there's no reason to use fuel at all because that's going to involve fission or fusion torch ships

That will take time. Fusion power is 30 years in the future and always has been.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axis_of_evil_(cosmology)
There's an observed anisotropy in the cosmic background radiation—it doesn't seem to be totally homogenous, but rather there's a slight discrepancy in one of half of the sky compared to the other. The plane which cuts the sky into two "halves" is nearly perfectly aligned with the plane in which bodies in our Solar System orbit. This is a challenge to the Copernican principle that our Earth does not sit in any particularly privileged place within the universe—in fact, it's such an affront that cosmologists have named it the "Axis of Evil".
Struggling to explain this finding, they were simply hoping it would "just go away", but as the data amasses they're finding that it's here to stay.
Moreover, this has led to other unusual observations, like that, for example, that galaxies in the universe, which previously seemed to be scattered randomly, have a greater-than-expected chance of actually being aligned with this axis.

Of course, if you bring this up on Reddit, you're bound to get a lot of "It's probably just observational error, dude", and "No way, there's nothing special about Earth's situation in the universe. Just trust me, it's science" and so on. And in fact, scientists themselves are desperately trying to explain it away like that. But it's just one of those things that won't go away no matter how much we wish it would, and as the evidence mounts up, it seems more and more likely to stay.
