Launchpad Day 5, AM - Galaxy Class

Yes, I'm splitting this one. When you spend a morning playing with galaxies and dark matter, you kind of need to give them their own space.

Um. So to speak.

It was prof_brotherton's day to lecture again and he picked up this morning more or less where we left off the previous night.

Okay. That is QUITE enough for one night. Past midnight now, local time. I better get to bed. The rest of today I will catch up on tomorrow, which is also the last day of Launchpad.

But before I go - we got a book recommendation today, apparently one of the worst books ever written, with a "read it if you dare" warning. Now, of course, I have to go find that sucker. The title is apparently "Galaxy 666". I will have to hunt for that one - it was recommended by such GUSTO that I want to at least have a taste of it now, especially when I know all this stuff about galaxies now and can gleefully pick holes in the thing...


See y'all tomorrow.
