since then our paths have crossed over the years at such places as barry goldwater az... china lake ca... tonapa nv... wright patterson oh... nellis nv... edwards ca... white sands nm... and such places...

i saw an ad for a bbq magnifying glass in unpopular science magazine... it claimed it could cook a whole pig in mico seconds with just a little sunlight even on a cloudy day...

i called the phone number in the ad and it was the sparkler... i told him he should spend some money on a bbq machine that left the beast in pieces larger than 50 microns... thats when he scored a bradley... 

people do lots of drinking and fornicating in death valley... you and bob would fit right in...

It was nice meeting up with you this season.  Look forward to the return visit.  Half to get them aliens to give you a break once in a while when you are out of So Cal and beam you over for a Que and Brew.  Easy trails to you and the mickster.

Memory is failing me. I thought it was the Trinity Site, New Mexico, July 16, 1945. Have to jump in the way-back machine and check...   :D

The Mysterious Case of Two Spheres Falling to Earth in Australia and Brazil

Written by Ian O'Neill

Mysterious spheres falling from space in Australia and Brazil (credit: Reuters/Daniel Drehmer at Second Wave)
On the March 24th, a story hit the web from Brazil asking for help identifying a mysterious-looking sphere found in farmland. The black, shiny object appeared to be wrapped in fibrous material and it was hot to the touch. Immediately thoughts of extra-terrestrial origin came to mind…

Today, several news sources covered the discovery of a mysterious spherical object found in the Australian outback last year. The farmer who made the discovery has only just started to make enquiries into what the object actually is.

So are the two objects connected in some way? Are they indeed from outer space?

The answer is "yes", and "yes". But don't go getting too excited, they're not bits from a broken alien spacecraft.

Before their origins are explained, a bit of background: The first story to be released was from Brazil on Monday. Just a small story on Daniel Drehmer's blog, asking "a space geek from Digg" (Digg.com being the social bookmarking site) for help to identify this strange object found by Sebastião Marques da Costa who described the orb as being hot to the touch. Either it has been heated by the Sun, or it had just crashed to Earth. On seeing the object, it does make for good science fiction material. It's a very strange looking thing, one meter in diameter, contrasting with the green countryside.

I was so intrigued by the story, I kept an eye on the blog. The following day, the Second Wave reported that an answer had been found. Obviously the geeks on Digg had been paying attention and identified the object as a Composite Overwrapped Pressure Vessel (or COPV). Put very basically, it's a high pressure container for inert gases. The space shuttle carries COPVs and it seems likely that these containers will be used for a variety of space missions. They are built with a carbon fibre or Kevlar overcoat to provide reinforcement against the vast pressure gradient between the inside and outside of the container.

If the COPVs are so reinforced, it seems reasonable that they may survive re-entry through the Earth's atmosphere.

So what about our Australian farmer? Looking at the picture, the strange object in the Australian outback has some striking similarities to the Brazilian orb (only a lot more damaged).

Today many news sites picked up on the Australian find (well, last year's find), and call me suspicious, but the timing couldn't be better. The Australian farmer, James Stirton, who found the object made the surprising statement to the Reuters news agency:

well now... we made it 1/2 way up the mountain before we saw the road closed signs and turned around...

so do you mean 1/2 way down the mountain or 1/2 way down the mountain from where we turned around... the latter would be 3/4 way down the mountain or 1/4 way up the mountain...

so in your own words... whats the he11 is yous sayings...

I'm hoping you mean you received your refund check.  Otherwise, sounds like your day is going the way my day is going.  I'm really looking forward to quitting time today.  When the clock hit's that final minute today, I'll be like Fred Flinstone sliding down the dinasour's back to get out of here.
