I have a question for you…

Chabot Space and Science Center, 2008

Have you ever, after hearing or reading a science or nature story thought to yourself, that is so cool…?

I am having a lot of those moments lately listening to Quest, Science Friday and my all time favorite Radio Lab. Sometimes I just can’t stop thinking about them and they turn into photographs in my head. It’s just the way my brain is wired.
I am in awe of the people that work to figure these things out. Take planet hunters¬† – who knew the way to find nearly invisible undiscovered planets was to look for stellar wobbles – that you find the planet by seeing a star “wobble” in the gravitational pull of an orbiting planet. Wow.

So my question is what is the coolest science thing you know?
