Glow In The Dark Solar System

Floyd Said:

I'm moving into a new house, and i'm going to have a solar system themed room and I need some tips

You can get some pictures or posters of diffrent systems, nebulas, etc...and hang them up. You can also get a charge of the constilations and place the glow in the dark stars on the ceiling to form some of the constilations.

Use silver painted accents (like shelves, desk, chair, etc...)

I know they are not "spacey" looking but Quartz crystals are pretty when displayed in a solar themed room.

Run a strand of clear christmas lights on the wall behind the headboard of the bed, so that there is a glow when it is turned on. You can also do the same thing behind drapes or around the window. Just don't for get to unplug them.

Where can I find a really nice glow in the dark solar system or just stars for my sons bedroom?

We Answered:

I've seen at Walmart in the kids toy section, those sick on stars & moons thingys. You peel off the backings & stick them to the ceiling and the glow in the dark. My nephew has them & likes them. =)

Does this prove that I am a weirdo?

We Answered:

Ha ha. "Glow in the dark with excitement..." I like that :-)

But no, I don't think it makes you a weirdo. You have a passion, and there's is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Everyone gets that excited about something!

Do they make glow in the dark ceiling stickers in any shape besides stars?

I understand how you feel... A couple of years ago, I wanted to do flowers for my dauther's room and could only find stars and solar systems too. But then I got lucky and found this glow-in-the-dark sticker sheets. I went to my local craft store, bought some really funky stencils, drew the stencils on the sheets, cut out the stencils and we had instant glow-in-the-dark art! My daughter loved it sooooo much. It was her night light :)

I imagine you could also just buy the glow-in-the-dark paint and some stencils and it would work the same way.

Here's the link for the sheets (and they have the paint too). Make sure you get the sticker, not the pvc because the pvc doesn't have a sticky backing:

Solar System Changes?

We Answered:

SUN: The Sun’s magnetic field is over 230 percent stronger now than it was at the beginning of the 1900s, and its overall energetic activity has sizably increased, creating a frenzy of activity that continues to embarrass NASA’s official predictions.

NOPE - If this were true, neither you or I would be typing / reading right now. We'd have most likely never been born.

VENUS: Venus is now glowing in the dark, as is Jupiter’s moon Io.

This is the first time I have hear it put this way "now" glowing in the dark. I'm not sure about Venus, but Jupiter definitely radiates enough energy for this to be possible.

EARTH: In the last 30 years, Earth’s icecaps have thinned out by as much as 40 percent. Quite inexplicably, just since 1997 the structure of the Earth has shifted from being slightly more egg-shaped, or elongated at the poles, to more pumpkin-shaped, or flattened at the poles. No one at NASA has even bothered to try to explain this yet.

The melting part may have some merit, but not 40% from a planetary perspective. The flattening business is hogwash.

MARS: The icecaps of Mars noticeably melted just within one year, causing 50-percent changes in surface features. Atmospheric density had risen by 200 percent above previous observations as of 1997.

This is nonsense too. Mars has been under close observation since 1997 and this has never been observed.

JUPITER: Jupiter has become so highly energized that it is now surrounded by a visibly glowing donut tube of energy in the path of the moon Io. The size of Jupiter’s magnetic field has more than doubled since 1992.

Jupiter has always had a significant radiation field "around" it. It's probably torroidal (donut shaped) and IO is close enough to Jupiter to be affected by it. This is nothing new and is certainly has not "doubled in strength since 1992".

SATURN: Saturn’s polar regions have been noticeably brightening, and its magnetic field strength increasing.

Nope. More hogwash...

URANUS: According to NASA’s Voyager II space probe, Uranus and Neptune both appear to have had recent magnetic pole shifts – 60 degrees for Uranus and 50 for Neptune.

Nonsense.

NEPTUNE: Neptune has become 40 percent brighter in infrared since 1996, and is fully 100-percent brighter in certain areas. Also, Neptune’s moon Triton has had a “very large percentage increase” in atmospheric pressure and temperature, comparable to a 22-degree Fahrenheit increase on Earth.

No such observations have been made.

PLUTO: As of September 2002, Pluto has experienced a 300-percent increase in its atmospheric pressure in the last 14 years, while also becoming noticeably darker in color.

We don't have any probes close enough to Pluto to even BEGIN to make an observation like this...

Where did you read all this nonsense?
