Lost Echoes of Some Young Yet Ancient Star

Fast radio bursts come from outer space, We measure them and try to plot their trace; First thought to be some cataclysmic scar, Lost echoes of some young yet ancient star.   A thousandth of a second in their beat, We now know that some of these sounds repeat; Recordings of a powerful pulsar, Lost … Read more

If Bowie were a Scientist

Mars None

Signing up to the new frontier, Travelling to no atmosphere. One-way ticket to the unknown, Knowing there’s no direction home.   Voyaging in to the abyss, Never a chance to reminisce.
