Yeah. Looks Legit.

GASP!



Here's the thing.
I had like 14 tabs open and was looking for info on cycler times between Earth and the main belt so I have NO idea what site this pop-up spam scam was lurking on...but I gather that they're preying on space geeks.

1 Reading Buzz Aldrin's original PhD thesis on cyclers was on my bucket list for a long time. To think that Buzz was not just the 2nd on the Moon, but also a real scientist... I mean all astronauts and cosmonauts presented PhDs, but Buzz's was a real deal that may one day save the humanity, not just a rubberstamp PhD. Ironically, it competes, in a way, against a fellow astronaut Lopez-Alegria's PhD thesis that aims to alleviate the need for cycler by using exceedingly tricky plasma phisics. My Russian colleagues are evenly split on the feasibility of VASIMR, in particular if the magnetic field is going to be straightened or not and if electrons are going to separate. Unfortunately, my highly prestigious phisics diploma does not help much after decades of disuse, but it does look like Buzz may just win in the end. His physics definitely works, while Lopez-Alegria's maybe, maybe not.

2 Wasn't there a malicious site that actually WOULD hold your computer hostage with some downloaded malware?

BTW, RWBY is up to episode 7.
