    Astronomy in "Baby Blues" Comic Strip

    Two weeks ago, the Baby Blues comic strip featured the subject of astronomy over the course of a few days.

    Finally, the strips are starting to appear in the online archives. The first is from April 30:

    April 30 Baby Blues

    May 1 Baby Blues

    More to come.

    Thread necromancy alert -- 3 years. And the poster seems to have missed his target, as "Baby Blues" has little to do with Terminator.

    Edit to add: Striking out my original post as the one I was referring to has been deleted.

    Hey, you! "It's" with an apostrophe means "it is" or "it has." "Its" without an apostrophe means "belongs to it."

    "For shame, gentlemen, pack your evidence a little better against another time."
    -- John Dryden, "The Vindication of The Duke of Guise" 1684

    Earth's sole legacy will be a very slight increase (0.01%) of the solar metallicity.

    Exact same post as I saw on another forum where again it had nothing to do with the thread. Spam. Its not just in cans anymore.

    I know it's tempting to show that you caught a spammer, but could you please use the report button rather than comment in thread, that way it's actually brought to the attention of the moderators and we don't end up with a thread with spam in it or comments that looks silly because the spam has been taken out.
