Thanks for commenting on here - I often feel I am having a conversation with myself! :Ssad:

The solar system is absolutely full of valuable elements Lady M - the asteroid belt for example. :Ssnile:

There won't be gold ...... gold is produced inside volcanoes, as far as I'm aware the moon has never had volcanoes.

But dream on this, there is star in our galaxy, maybe more than one, which is entirely made of diamonds.

More awesomeness: there is a star which is so massive, if you flew around it's equator just once in a jetliner at it's cruising speed - to meet today where you began your journey - you would have had to have started out when the Vikings began to invade Britain.

The actual scale of the universe is frightening.

Even our pitiful 'little' local region of space is totally mind boggling (despite those misleading posters that are so common) many people simply do not understand the vast distances involved.

The following is just the inner Solar System - the distances to the Oort cloud are vastly greater. :kinell:

Hi keyser, do believe in climate change?

Do you think this could be very serious to bio diversity for all animals?.... :ooer: Extreme weather is very scary. We live in uncertain times.

Hi! :Hiya:

Yes I do and it is a very serious threat to biodiversity - in the last 30 years for example Polar bears have becoming 20% smaller due to having less time to hunt on the ice. :Ssad:

A few recent stories that may be of interest to some (including more on plesiosaur swimming and the language of Hyenas).

A planet of diamonds is allowed but a moon of gold isn't? :snooty:
