    Seeing is believing.
  2. How Cold Is It?

    Record cold is forecast for much of the SW this week. I'm in the Ft. Mohave/Laughlin area where it's 48 now and headed for a low of 38. The same is forecast for Tues, & Weds.

    Here's an interesting story discussing how metals crystallize. "In their paper, the researchers proposed one possibility: Perhaps a massive nugget of solid metal alloy dropped from the mantle and plunged into the liquid core. " I think it's more likely that the "massive nugget" was extraterrestrial and crashed through the mantle and into the core. That would explain the Earth's expansion and continental drifting. Maybe even some of the massive flooding and rise of the oceans. **The Case Western researchers said that while they favor this new explanation over the conventional model, they're eager for members of the scientific community to weigh in with theories of their own. Earth's inner core shouldn't technically exist http://www.foxnews.com/science/2018/02/14/earths-inner-core-shouldnt-technically-exist.html

    Amazing. I guess creating a burger flipper would be a piece of cake.

  9. A Brief Asteroid Story

    Thanks Martin. I also have a short story. I'm thinking it was in July or August of 2011 or 2012 I was night fishing on the Columbia River in Washington State and I saw a huge green and white fireball drop slowly -- and silently -- from the sky. It was almost due north of where I was (near Kennewick) and it looked like it was coming straight down somewhere over the horizon. I have since read that green color indicates magnesium.

    Good point Bob. Unfortunately those virgin patches are getting fewer and further between. I firmly believe that the next frontier is under water. We have been talking about meteorites and questioning whether they brought gold to this planet and/or somehow cased gold to form. I'm pretty sure that some of us have suspected something like: The Meteorite That Killed the Dinosaurs May Have Also Triggered Underwater Volcanoes Read more: https://www.smithsonianmag.com/science-nature/meteorite-killed-dinosaurs-also-triggered-underwater-volcanoes-

    Great story Martin. I hope it takes you many moons to dig up all the nuggets out there.

    I got to be like that too Bob but never hit a big unknown patch -- and I'll have to admit that the old timers were pretty thorough. They did a great job with the tools they had to work with. *If I needed a nugget today to save a life, I'd go to Rich Hill with a GM1000.

    That's some great looking gold Martin. Thanks for sharing!
