Celestial musings

09.05.06

So is it a planet or isn’t it? Pluto’s dubious status continues to cause debate among scientists, stargazers, and a lot of people with nothing better to do.

In the meantime, it seems they’re filming a movie in my neighbourhood. This struck me as more than a little odd when I passed by the orange signs, since I can’t even begin to fathom why anyone would choose my area – good for cheap rent, not much good for atmosphere – for a film location. So I checked out the information on the signs. The film, it seems, has a working title of “Neptune” – which, as far as I know, is definitely still a planet. No information about it appears yet on IMDb, as far as I can tell.

Oh, and a European space probe crashed into the moon yesterday. Seems this was designed to satisfy people who’d become bored with “World’s Scariest Police Chases” and spectacular NASCAR crashes.
