Comet C/2019 Y4 (ATLAS) Unlikely To NOW Be Naked-Eye — It Is Breaking Up.

SHAME.

But, I did say, very clearly — DO NOT GET YOUR HOPES UP.

I was hoping. I would have liked to have seen another naked-eye comet. The last was 23-years ago! That is too long.

There is a WHOLE generation, in the Northern Hemisphere, that have never seen a naked-eye comet. (Yes, there have been a FEW in the Southern Hemisphere.)

That it started breaking up this far from the Sun is incongruous. But, it is travelling at breakneck speeds, getting faster by the second.

Well, that was THAT. SMILE.

Wait for another.

Waited 7-years for this.

YouTube trailer.


I found it thoroughly engrossing and compelling. But, in a way you can say that this was a movie made for I. That alone is scary and tells you much of what you probably want to know.

It is a semi-fictional story about creating a very fast network (basically just a fiber line) for high-frequency trading. So, two topics dear to my heart: high-speed networking & stock trading. This is why I said it was ‘specialized’ & ‘technical‘.

Just there is a LOT of human drama. Contrary to what they claim it is NOT a thriller.

I really enjoyed it, BUT I appreciate that it will not be everyone’s cup of tea. Check out the trailer.
