I have to admit, these ideas aren't really scientific, considering them being old, but they are still cool though. I particularly like the "fishimanders".

I remember this one. Notice how it's been read over 11000 times.
This is the one where we had like 100 guests all just parked in here reading it a long while back. It was nutty.

I wonder what that was all about anyway.

I guess it's due to the "National Geographic" part of the thread's title. The large name might have attracted the bots, thinking that it's a hot topic.

Ah yes, the National Geographic 'Our Universe' book. In its day it was THE book of science knowledge about solar system at the time. It was the days of Cosmos and the Voyager probes. There was the cry of 'Holy crap, Jupiter has rings!'.

One feature of that book that was also really cool was that there was an phonograph record in the middle of the book that had a lot of cool stuff on it, including a music-like montogue of collected space sounds.

There were a couple other National Geographic 'Our...' books, but none of them were nearly as cool.
