Astronomers aren’t smart, apparently

Ah, Greggggg. You never fail to amuse. This week’s TMQ, writing about an apparently undiscovered astronomical phenomenon: “How could an entire region of space retain energy emitted by something else? Your guess is as good as the nearest Ph.D.’s.”

No Greggg, it is not. And before you ask, yours isn’t either. The funny thing is, he wouldn’t say that about a computer virus, or a car problem, or a newly discovered ancient scroll. In his world, studying for years, lecturing, observing, and experimenting = shopping at Kmart, playing poker, and listening to lite FM.

Why does Gregg Easterbrook hate astronomers?
