Orbital Dust Bunnies

Filed under: — Greg @ 9:44 am

This CNN article might be a little bit too pseudo for some of our astro-physics readers, but I was amused at the comparison of planetary accretion to dust bunny accumulation. So if I don’t sweep my floor for a few million years, will a new planetary system develop? I think we owe it to ourselves to find out.

    George Rieke from U of A, and the astronomer in the article, worked with us this summer. I’m almost famous by association!

    Arizona Rocks! Go Wildcats! Wow…I don’t believe I just said that.
