Our Bad Astronomer is famous again

I got Wired magazine today, and the article about finding evidence of life on Mars cites our own Phil Plait and his ghost-of-Lenin face that appeared on his shower curtain.


“[Hogland’s] claims are regularly attacked in withering geek style by Phil Plait, NASA education resource director at Sonoma State Universtiy in Northern California, who describes himself as the “go-to guy for astronomical debunking.” Plaint runs BadAstronomy.com, which metes out the drubbings that NASA is too politic to deal with itself.”

I like the “metes out the drubbings” part. Way to go, Phil!

“Must destroy capitalism! Grrrrr…”
