Well folks, it's my birthday weekend (I turn 14 on Sunday) so I'm gonna head out of here (and possibly never return!), but not before some EXCITING news about plate techtonics on Mars. Me? I eat on paper plates, but that's just me and probably the most fascinating thing you'll learn all day. Stay tuned for what I have for dinner! EARLY SPECULATION: a dozen beers.
It turns out that Earth is not alone when it comes to plate tectonics. University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) Earth and space sciences professor An Yin has discovered that Mars is in the early stages of plate tectonics, providing a "glimpse of how the early Earth may have looked," said Yin via a university news release Thursday.
"You don't see these features anywhere else on other planets in our solar system, other than Earth and Mars," said Yin via the release.
You don't really care, do you? Here I am TRYING to science you, and you don't even give a shit. Well what if I told you Mars' plate techtonics were the result of having a LIQUID QUESO INTERIOR? "I'd say you're lying." I am, the moon really does though.
Thanks to Dustin, who already started penning 'Journey to the Center of Mars' which is gonna be a best seller because I just wrote a review to include on the dust jacket: "Great coaster -- multiple drink capacity."
