Day 5. 24 pages, 9,090 words.
I’m a bit burned out after yesterday’s post. Plus, as you can see, I only got a chance to write a couple of hundred words. So I’ll focus on that today.
In the meantime, I’m getting about an equal measure of news about “that star which has the anomalous cloud of debris around it or maybe a giant alien megastructure”, and “we all loved Bernie Sanders last week but now we’ve decided we don’t and anyone who still does is a giant poo”.
I’ll let you guess which story I’m more interested in. Yeah, it’s probably just a mess of rocks and in any case it’s a fourteen hundred light years away, but even the fact that we can see it is freaking cool. We’re looking at something that, natural or artificial, was actually orbiting that star in the Sixth Century AD. Just imagine what else there might be out there for us to find.
Oh, and the new Star Wars trailer is out. Which is cool and all, but I’m not feeling any particularly uncontainable excitement. I’ll certainly go and see it on the big screen though.
