A flat Earth is wrong.

Very interesting Stuart. The physics lessons I had at school make sense now.  :)

Hey Stuart, what do you need to get to a typical astronomy conference? An abstract or a paper?

Mandela Effect, forsooth.  It is laughable!

(I kid, but when I saw the parts I highlight in the screenshot below, I thought it mildly amusing...)

A likely story, you must be one of the main re-writers of the Cosmic Code, hence your apogee in defense of the non-exitance of the Manderbla Effect.

BTW:  The above is properly spelt Anglish in the cosmoverse I grew up in...  heh

I dunno baby.   I have  a distinct memory of Furious George   He and the man in the yellow hat used to beat some serious ass.
Now it seems as if both have been wussified to the point where the stories are sooooo boring.

Why does imperfect memory have to have a classification like "Mandela Effect"?

Because people think they're perfect.

Not pseudo astronomy, but the real stuff. But fascinating. Weird.

I'm not sure that's the "biggest."  Keep in mind the standing wave pattern on the north pole of Saturn (the hexagon), which is around 13,000 km, and this one on Venus is 10,000.

Thanks astroguy! Can you explain where the "97% of climate scientists" figure comes from? I trust your judgment but I have heard some disputes over this number.

Here's an example article quickly pulled from the internet:

First, look at the author of that article: Alex Epstein, someone who's made a career advocating for fossil fuel use.  Doesn't mean it's wrong, but it's a warning flag.

Next, there have been many studies that combed through the scientific literature about climate change to see who thinks it's real and who doesn't.  Here's a blog that summarizes 7 of those reviews and the one that Epstein complains about (Cook et al., 2013) is just one of them.

Another thing you can look to is the professional studies that have members who do the research on this work.  NASA's website (for now) has a list of seven of them, though I have no idea why the AMA has come out in support.  But the other six are relevant and their members pushing for this are the only way that these scientific organizations will come out with such a policy statement.

Maybe I picked a bad example :) Thanks for such an in-depth response that will keep me busy reading for awhile. You and expat keep our heads out of the clouds around here dangit.  >:(

Nice! I'm listening to it now. I like the cross-over :) Interesting questions hashed. Maybe we can hope you'll do one with the Hoagland Imaging Team?
