batteries: something you will need buy a lot
of in advance of the Y5B billennium
chromosphere: part of the Sun that is above
the photosphere. It is several thousand miles thick, but because the gases in the
chromosphere are so thin and emit very little light, the chromosphere is hard to see.
The act of fearing chrome.
cold day: the projected weather forecast in
Y5B after a heat wave
convection zone: a zone in a star where
convection is the main mode of energy transport. A surface convective zone like the Sun's
is involved in the production of its magnetic field. If someone feels strongly about
the zone, they are said to have a convection zone.
corona: the outermost layer of the Sun. The
corona extends millions of miles into space and is the hottest part of the surface of the
Sun. It has temperatures reaching millions of degrees. Corona is also something you
might want to drink a lot of in the year 5 Billion.
a good attorney: Someone who has been trained
in the legal profession, spent many years in higher education, is capable in properly
representing clients, and is fair and honest. This is a myth that has been around
for 5,000,000,000 years.
microwave: a small wave
solar eclipse: Non Applicable
electromagnetic charge card radiation: energy
waves with both electric and magnetic components produced by the vibration or acceleration
of the use of charge cards.
evaporation: a gradual change of a liquid
into a gas without boiling. There won't be much of this in the year 5 Billion.
flares: sudden short-lived brightening of the
Sun's upper chromosphere/inner corona. They represent an explosive release of energy that
causes a heating of the surrounding area. Right before the sun burns out, you may
see one of these. Don't look directly into the flare, and by all means make
sure to duck.
House Managers: Low orbiting negatively
charged particles which continue to endlessly circle positively charged protons resulting
in a burning sensation consuming an infinite amount of energy with no recognizable output.
Hyde Effect:: An old star that is
about to burn out but due to a chemical reaction is showing one last burst of energy prior
moon burn: a burning sensation on the skin
caused from lying outside under the moon without any moon blocking lotion
grazing incidence: the degree to which X-rays
reflect from a surface and goats want to come home to eat what's left of the lawn.
photosphere: the part of the Sun that we see.
It is the Sun's lower atmosphere. The photosphere is a few hundred miles thick. It gives
off most of its energy as visible light and heat. This is sometimes confused with people
who are afraid to have their picture taken.
photosynthesis: the process by which
chlorophyll-containing green plants, algae, and some bacteria capture energy in the form
of light and convert it to chemical energy. This process is used in making photographs on
precipitation: in physics and chemistry, the
formation of a second, visible phase of matter within a first phase. If, for example, a
solution becomes supersaturated with a component that is a solid at the temperature
involved, that substance crystallizes as a sediment or may be separated from the liquid
phase by filtration.
prominences: clouds of gas in the Sun's upper
chromosphere / inner corona, with a high density and a lower temperature than their
surroundings. When viewed against the brighter disk they appear as dark absorption
features and are termed filaments. In other words, don't stand next to a light wall
when the sun explodes unless you want to be prominently displayed forever.
respiration: process by which living things
take in oxygen and emit carbon dioxide. Respiration also refers to the conversion by a
cell of molecules such as carbohydrates and fats to energy, a process called cellular
respiration. People will need to respire in the Year 5000000000 or they will expire
before they retire.
Starr report: A very expensive 60000 page
report linking the Clintonian Starr system to the Big Bang theory.
sundowner: depression caused by lack of sun
sunspot: the spot where the sun used to be
