Hello! I've been watching over these forums for approximately a year now- never really having much to say, but learning a lot! This site has an amazing amount of archived information and I thought I'd finally join in!

I'll do my best to abide by the rules.. do searches before I post.. yada yada

Until I hit 20 posts I can't make topics.. maybe someone should make one about this new article?

Astronomers have spotted light from the very first stars in the universe, which are almost as old as time itself.

Shortly after the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago, the universe cooled enough to let atoms form, which eventually clumped together to create the first stars. Ever since these stars ignited, their light has been filling the universe, creating a pervasive glow throughout space that each successive generation of stars adds to.

Please let me know when I make my noobie mistakes. I'm excited to meet you all, even though there are a few on here I feel I know a bit already.

Hi, I'm new too. Cool article! Someone really should make a thread on it. I can't post threads yet either.

Welcome to the family. That sickening 'help the ground is dropping out from under me' feeling goes away, maybe

Only after a bottle of Absinthe, and a few Ibuprofen.

Do you basketball?

Only when my little man is tired of a kickabout.

Sorry but your name sounded familiar.

Its just my secretly secret online name that I go by (Aden Yubi [yoo-bee]), in surname-first form. Spliced together it kind of sounds like a Mortal Kombat character, depending on how you pronounce it. I use it where it seems fitting.


I prefer the latter, I guess.

I only asked because Martin wears those silly shoes. Nice to meet you by the way.

Thanks for the welcome Johnny, even if that was a canned speech.. I felt the love through the copy/paste.
