New Dinosaur Found in China Comedy Satire

The world was already greenygrey when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, according to the photo depicting the newly discovered Qianzhousaurus sinensis (right) in a Daniella Graham Metro article (Wednesday May 7th).

Meet Pinocchio rex, T.rex's fearsome relative

Hi, it’s Chris Packwolf, satirical comedy nature correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by Chris Packham in the human world. Yes, this could be an important discovery in the search for the Greenygrey’s origin of species.

The dinosaur’s bones were found in China, and it has been nicknamed Pinocchio Rex due to its large nose.

Dinosaurs’ Modern Relatives

The modern greenYgrey world isn’t so different, as shown by this photo of frogs posted on Google+ by Kurt Stocker:

This one of green and grey lizards in greenYgrey nature posted on Google+ by Mario Nahum is delightfully dinosaurish too:

New Wonder of the Science World – Martian Light Satirical Comedy

After the Greenygrey was the last new scientific wonder of the world when it emerged into the human world in 2008 it seems planet Earth is already ready for the next one. That’s according to Ben Gilliland in Metro’s Microcosm anyway, although he doesn’t mention the Greenygrey part.

Moreover, in a hot off the press Greenygrey double bill, there’s also today’s amazing image of a light on the Mars surface, which life on Mars believers claim is evidence of something living under the surface.

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, satirical comedy science correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by legendary astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.

Gilliland was talking about the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), which ‘will be the ultimate in Universe-probing radio telescopes. Made up of hundreds of thousands of individual radio telescopes and built across South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, the SKA will have the resolving power equivalent to telescope with lens measuring one square kilometre. ‘

Seeing to Beginning of Time

Moreover, after I reported greenygrey present in the universe soon after the Big Bang last month, SKA will be able to see back to the time before the universe we can see at the moment was created; when there were just gases and no solid forms.

That means we might finally get to the bottom of the Greenygreylien mystery. Metro has a great Greenygreylien image in its infographic online, which was part of the bigger picture, so was too massive to import into the Greenygrey world.

But never fear, there are loads of great greenygreylien images online, thanks to Martians being perceived as green.

Light on Mars Image

Talking of Martians, but not greenygrey coloured, although in line with Greenygrey theory, an exciting new photo today showed a spark of light on Mars; reported in Metro today by Jimmy Nsubuga.

It was taken by the NASA Curiosity Rover, which is like a futuristic Greenygrey robotydog.

Believers in life on Mars, who could be seen as the Green theorists, claim it is evidence of Martians living underground; while sceptics, who could be called the Grey theorists, say it is a cosmic flare hitting the Martian surface:

Does this mystery white light suggest there's life on Mars?

Ancient Star Found, DNA Research Off Ground

As regular readers will know, the Greenygrey awoke on the north-west of North America coast in 2008, not knowing its origins. It thought it’d been around for quite a while, but a new discovery suggests it could have been around since the beginning of the universe.

Earliest Star Universe Image

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, satirical comedy science correspondent at the Greenygrey inspired by renowned astronomer Stephen Hawking.

Yes, there’s an exciting new discovery for greenygreyologists searching for the origins of the greenygrey.

The sparkonit blog reports that astronomers think they’ve found the earliest star after the Big Bang yet: ‘The star, designated SMSS J031300.36−670839.3, is believed to have formed some hundred million years after the Big-Bang.’

Moreover, the accompanying image suggests the building blocks of the Greenygrey were already active then:

DNA Gene Research

In another exciting development for Greenygreyology sparkonit reports that  ‘research at the University of California – Davis has proved that the new genes come from the non-coding regions of the DNA.’

Up until now, geneticists had been unaware of the mechanism by which new genes appear in a species.

This could lead to the Greenygrey
finally learning its complete DNA:

January Night Sky and Moon Phases

Happy New Year. It’s Stephen Wolfing with some Sky news. Bright sky in Britain today offers the opportunity to view Venus under a thin crescent moon soon after sunset. Here’s what the One Minute Astronomer website reported:

January Night Sky

2-3 Jan.  A thin crescent Moon shares the southwestern sky with Venus after sunset.  The planet is on its way to inferior conjunction on the 11th, lying roughly between the Earth and the Sun, so it appears in a telescope as a slender crescent more than 60″ across, larger than Jupiter.

Moon_Venus_010214

The slender crescent Moon and Venus, along with the stars Altair and Vega, as seen looking west about 30 minutes after sunset on Jan 2, 2014.

If there’s a bright sky on January 24th you will be able to see a crescent moon waning, as well as Mars, Saturn and Venus.

Planets_012414

Mars, the waning crescent Moon, Saturn, Venus, and the bright stars Spica and Antares as seen looking SSE on Jan. 24, 2014.

Moon Phases Explained

Wikipedia features clear explanations of the lunar phases. The waxing and waning times are seen oppositely in the Southern hemisphere, so when the northern is seeing the right of the moon, the southern is seeing the left.

Phase Northern Hemisphere Visibility Mid-phasestandard time
New moon Not visible (too close to the Sun)Later to be followed by theMoon’s first visible crescent (too close to Sun) (too close to Sun)
Waxing (young)’crescent moon’ Right side, 1–49% lit disc late afternoon andpost-dusk 3 pm
First quarter ‘moon’ Right side, 50%-lit disc afternoon andearly evening 6 pm
Waxing ‘gibbousmoon’ Right side, 51–99% lit disc late afternoon andmost of night 9 pm
Full moon Completely illuminated disc Sunset to sunrise(all night) sunset to sunrise(all night)
Waning ‘gibbous moon’ Left side, 51–99% lit disc most of night and early morning 3 am
Last (third) quarter moon Left side, 50%-lit disc late night and morning 6 am
Waning (old)crescent moon Left side, 49-1% lit disc. Diminishing to the Moon’s last visible crescent pre-dawn and morning 9 am

The Brain has Grown and Folded: All in the Mind

Hi, it’s Stephen Wolfing, science correspondent at the Greenygrey. Greenygrey in the human world was totally separate from the Folding Mirror poetry form when the two concepts emerged five years ago. However, through research and new discoveries the two fields have converged over the last half-decade.

Mind Is Not Brain

In the natural world and human architecture there are many examples of greenygrey folding mirrors, such as horizons and reflections.

Greenygrey All in the Mind

The Greenygrey in the human mind is most easily defined as a kind of bipolar schizophrenia: the division of the mind into at least two separate parts; more vertical than horizontal.

Meanwhile, the Folding Mirror poetry form divides two halves of poetry with a middle line: more horizontal than vertical.

English: Unlimited Potential of the Human Mind

The Greenygrey concept has therefore provided a lot of conceptual material for Folding Mirror poems.

Physical Evidence of Folding Brain Folds to Fit Skull

While the Greenygrey is only a concept when it comes to the human brain, the actual physical matter is called Gyri (ridges) and Sulci (crevices), and it has folded itself to fit into our skulls.

Apparently, if the brain was unwrapped it would be the size of a pillowcase.

Gyrisulci doesn’t seem that far off the Greenygrey to me!

Marc Latham drew this self-portrait of what he suspected to be an ADHD mind around about the conception time of the Greenygrey and Folding Mirror poetry form:

New Science, Space and Nature Documentaries

Hi, it’s Harry Silhouetteof-Wolfhowlingonhill, with a round-up of the best  documentaries we’ve seen this week, and that are available on the BBCiplayer to whoever can access it.

 Forming, Diving, Mixing, Copying

  • Seven Ages of Starlight provided a good overview of stars from start to finish, with the best explanation of how hydrogen forms into helium to power stars like our sun we’ve seen. It’s available until this Saturday night.
  • Space Dive told the story of the work that went into Felix Baumgartner’s amazing freefall dive over two years, and lots of coverage of the historic day that showed it was not as straightforward as it looked. It’s available until November 14th.
  • Dara O’ Briain’s Science Club has a wonderful greenygrey collage to advertise it (see above), and an interesting study into how much Neanderthal DNA humans have, with the average about 3-4%. So humans are not so different to us werewolves. Maybe we’ll call you humanderthals from now on! It’s available until November 16th.
  • Richard Hammond’s Miracles of Nature had lots of nice images and some interesting information about how we’ve copied what animals do naturally. We most liked it because it had a long feature about G-force. It showed the effects of G-9, which looked pretty powerful. It’s available until November 26th.

Although we enjoy working at the Greenygrey, we think 2-G is enough thanks!
