    I guess when it comes to making themed pages, space gives you a lot of options.

    Here’s another one: Venus’s atmospheric pressure at sea level is over 90x that of Earth, and the strength of the atmosphere’s currents are so powerful that they’ve reversed the planet’s orbit over time.

    One time I was 658 million light years big and had to lie down.

    One time there were four Lego figurines. Were those figurine Lego pieces assembled?

    We got three space facts.

    There are cemeteries suspended from cliffs in Sagada, Philippines.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    That black hole became aware of social media.

    From left to right, the Lego figurines represent Galileo, Juno, and Jupiter.

    I guess NASA was afraid Buzz and Neil would be hit by a golf cart, while walking, from their trailers to the Moon studio and would miss the filming.

    If that black hole was seen to change directions it happened 657 million years ago, so relax, it’s been “facing Earth” for a long long time.

    May those aboard be with you as they are with their tea, and gesundheit.

    If that black hole is heading in our direction, we’re all in trouble.

    Maybe God wants to clean up this mess.

    Karma? Divine Intervention? Cosmic Retribution?

    We’re all doomed!

    How do we determine which way a blackhole is “facing”? Do astronomers see the blackhole’s nose, or mouth? I assume blackholes “absorb” matter approaching from any direction so it is all mouth. I have this picture of them rotating, I don’t know that’s the case, but if it is, I assume anything approaching against that rotation will crash head on into oncoming traffic.

    I don’t believe anything NASA has to say.

    They can tell if the black hole is moving side to side, but how can they tell it’s moving towards us?

    I guess we’ll know the answer to puzzle as to why that black hole turned to face us…in about 657 light years.

    I’ve read that speech that was prepared in case the worst happened on the Apollo 11 mission. It’s moving, and fairly easy to find.

    In space, “suddenly” is relative…

    How does anyone see a black hole in space, which is black? It’s a rhetorical question.
