    That Stay-Puft Marshmallow man gets around- now we know what happened to the solar system now occupied by the nebula. Too late to do anything about it now- who you gonna call, Ghostbusters?

    [Opens Bad Astronomy. Sees SUPERnova picture. Starts laughing so hard she falls out of her chair and onto the floor. Finally stops laughing long enough to get back into her chair and write this comment.]

  13. @ Arik Rice: Clearly it’s made from the fabric of space-time.

    Wait a second . . . that’s been photoshopped!!
