“Shirtgate” scientist “mansplains” comet

Dr Matt Taylor, famously attacked by feminists for wearing the wrong shirt, explains how the Rosetta cometary mission is now coming to its successful end. It is good to see he escaped the feminist online mob fundamentally unscathed.

Rosetta mission to end with spacecraft crash-landing into comet

 

The news is that cometary water probably didn’t contribute to earth’s water but comets may have supplied some of the “building blocks” of life on Earth such as amino acids. Sir Fred Hoyle would be pleased. He used to argue that this sort of thing was likely.

    I am glad to hear that he weathered this. Tim Hunt did not do as well.

      The last I heard Prof. Hunt and his wife had gone to Asia to continue their work.

      That was a disgraceful episode. To his credit, Dr Nassim Taleb (of “Black Swan” fame) and others supported him.

        There is more news, His detractor Connie Lewis got the axe from her university. I think that it was the fibs in in her curriculum vitae that caught up with her.
        Good to hear that he and his wife are recovering.
