Lets have a guessing game as to what it is... We each get three guesses...

1. They discovered that the medieval 'astronomers' were right all along and everything IS on giant crystal spheres...
2. That the planets aren't really that far away, they are just really small...
3. The inhabitants of Pluto really were PO'd about being demoted out of full planetary status and an invasion fleet is on it's way...

(I'm wrong on all accounts aren't I)...

Yeah, or maybe they found out that the "Flammarion astronomer" where right all this time. Piercing through the veil.

That would be cool, and a surprise. :yes:

Quote

The engraving depicts a man, clothed in a long robe and carrying a staff, who kneels down and passes his head, shoulders, and right arm through a gap between the star-studded sky and the earth, discovering a marvellous realm of circling clouds, fires and suns beyond the heavens. One of the elements of the cosmic machinery bears a strong resemblance to traditional pictorial representations of the "wheel in the middle of a wheel" described in the visions of the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel. One of the most significant features of the landscape is the tree, which some people have interpreted as the Kabbalistic Tree of Life.
The caption that accompanies the engraving in Flammarion's book reads:
A missionary of the Middle Ages tells that he had found the point where the sky and the Earth touch

Always when I hear someone yell `SURPRISE´ I think of this scene. Especially if it´s done with an asian/english accent. (I'm sorry, but it just sounds to fun). :D

Telepathy and synchronicity. ;)

The two telescopes mentioned by name, out of seven involved, in all, were the TRAPPIST 60 centimeter instrument, and the Danish 1.45 meter one, both at the La Silla observatory in Chile. The one thing these two telescopes have in common is that they look, on a part time basis, for comets.
I don't quite see what could be surprising about a comet. They've already been seen to assume a number of odd shapes, and do remarkable things, like break into many pieces and crash into the planet Jupiter, and threaten to sideswipe Mars. The odds that this discovery is about a comet headed directly for Earth seem very slight.
Perhaps while hunting for the dim traces of these cosmic gadflies, while they're still in the outer reaches of our solar system, they turned up something else of interest. Perhaps an enigmatic object is involved,and they can't decide if it's a comet, or what it is, hence the prediction of 'much debate'.  If so, we'll learn the source of their perplexity in less than a day.

Details about the new discovery concerning by far the largest Centaur asteroid/comet, Chariklo, which orbits between Saturn and Uranus.

That is cool... I know I posted a funny selection earlier, but I was really thinking perhaps they had discovered traces of the supposed giant planet out in the Oort cloud that (theoretically) cause comets....
But a double ringed small body like that is really surprising... I am assuming the rings are on the same plane...(?)....
