These Sounds From Ancient Stars Are Pretty Freaky

In space, no one can hear you scream because it’s a vacuum, and sound — as we know it here on Earth — can’t travel through nothing. However, that doesn’t mean there are no other sounds.

The frequency at which different stars vibrate can give scientists an incredible amount of data about what each star is made of. These vibrations can also be […]

This is reminiscent of the anxiety disorder liberals were suffering when they couldn’t accept that Al Gore had lost the election. That may have been the point of no return for many on the left’s sanity. Now crazy is the standard for Al Gore and his prophets of doom.
