File under: No, really!
I know this is old news now but I love the Herald Sun's headline: Herald Sun: Merger could warp universe [21nov02].
That and the fact that "The consequent gravitational ripples could cause minute changes in the distance between any two points in the universe."
Whoa. Now that's news.

I feel closer to all of you.
Anyone go to the Einstein show at AMNH? They show what Krikolev (721 days on the MIR) went through, since speed affects the passage of time. Evidently he is 0.02 seconds younger than he would be, had he stayed on earth.
This is illustrated by a photograph of him at current age, and another of him 0.02 seconds younger.
It's kind of great.
