Animations of Saturn’s aurorae

Earth isn’t the only planet in the solar system with spectacular light shows. Both Jupiter and Saturn have magnetic fields much stronger than Earth’s. Auroras also have been observed on the surfaces of Venus, Mars and even on moons (e.g. Io, Europa, and Ganymede). The auroras on Saturn are created when solar wind particles are channeled into the planet’s magnetic field toward its poles, where they interact with electrically charged gas (plasma) in the upper atmosphere and emit light. Aurora features on Saturn can also be caused by electromagnetic waves generated when its moons move through the plasma that fills the planet’s magnetosphere.  The main source is the small moon Enceladus, which ejects water vapor from the geysers on its south pole, a portion of which is ionized. The interaction between Saturn’s magnetosphere and the solar wind generates bright oval aurorae around the planet’s poles observed in visible, infrared and ultraviolet light. The aurorae of Saturn are highly variable. Their location and brightness strongly depends on the Solar wind pressure: the aurorae become brighter and move closer to the poles when the Solar wind pressure increases.

davidptaylor said: I didn't say she apologised, I said you should, but I can tell already that's off the cards. I'm not trolling you, I'm criticising you, there's a difference. If you think you should be exempt from criticism because you're just so damn angry at society then how do you expect anyone to understand where you're coming from, or to make any progress? If everything everyone ever says to you on the subject is some kind of underhanded insult, then you must be exhausted. Maybe take a step back.

Ah. I’m sorry. I misunderstood which post you were referring to. But the rest of what I said applies to the first thing about the knees, too. Because what she said was not polite, nor was it a question. She knew it was offensive, she said so. She just decided to say it anyway, because she thought her bullshit was more important, even though it’s bullshit we hear every single fucking day and already know to be bullshit. Somehow it’s just SO IMPORTANT for her to tell us, too. She wasn’t asking a question, and she wasn’t being polite, she was fucking well asserting that there was something wrong with us for being fat, and FUCK THAT. 

You are tone trolling. You are criticizing the way we express our anger while disregarding our message. It’s derailing and silencing. You are policing our language, and yeah, it fucking well is a kind of trolling. Go read the fucking FAQ if you want to understand. But you don’t want to understand, do you? No, you want to be an asshole to me because you don’t like what I have to say.

Shove it up your ass.

”..damn angry at society”? Is thi for real? Society defined us as a slag heap of disease. Encourages us to be butchered and have our insides mis-routed. Tells us we are dying of every disease going, and the only way to save ourselves is through a route that doesn’t work.

And you claim this is “angry”?

You take a step back and look at what’s really happening.

This man was our president for EIGHT YEARS. We are never gonna live this down

Frack living it down, we’re almost 8 years out from THAT debacle and most of the damage hasn’t even been repaired. (But that’s got NOTHING to do with a Congress who’s been in Vaca for at least that long, Nope.)
