    So now you don't think binary is real either or just has no value?

    Foolish usually is gullible, as we see daily on this forum.

    I'm happy to be 'gullible' about the value of binary numbering. better than being so foolish as to not understand it.

    Ultima Thule is a provisional name - it hasn't yet been accepted by the International Astronomical Society, which holds naming rights.

    The name does meet the naming restrictions of that organization.

    But, that name was used by Nazis for a while to refer to some sort of Nazi paradise.

    Is that enough to kill that name?

    I guess we'll see when it comes up for a vote.

    Until then, some groups are switching back to 2014 MU69.

    Don't I? Okay, if you say so! Unfortunately whether I do or not has zero bearing on this particular matter (dark matter? lol); I've already said I have no scientific training, but as usual you're totally missing the point viz. the BS which accompanies this drivel.

    :roll: It's an Old Boy's Club, Will, the members of which will accept anything to keep the show on the road. Good idea about switching back to 2014 MU69 though. Count me in on that.

    Science illiterates and conspiracy theorists are known to habitually opine on subjects they know little if anything about.

    Like you do know? :roflol: Face up to it ffs - you only 'know' (note the inverted commas, suggesting I use the word in its loosest sense?) what you've found out by reading space magazines.

    Those are not inverted commas. If they were they would point up.

    Why are you rolling around on the floor. Do you often spend time on the floor?

    I'm not on the floor, I'm levitating. Can you see a floor under me? :roll: :mrgreen:

    Ah, so you are possessed by the devil and floating like Linda Blair! Are you also having convulsions?

    Maybe we could use demonic possession as a new type of propulsion system.

    Maybe the floor we don't see is actually ABOVE him and he's free falling into the abyss - with a smile on his face.

    Just a thought ...

    Will, old chum, read and digest what I say - don't let yourself be manipulated by these charlatans; and when the penny drops, and your self-respect returns, you'll never stop thanking me for guiding you onto the straight and narrow. This never-ending deluge of nonsense from the space industry is their way of measuring how the mass dumbing down project is going. :nod:
