Sure, you might think I’m jealous, because why else would I want to make fun of Scientific American confusing light years as a time and not a distance in their review of Amazing Space, a website they chose for their Science and Technology 2005 Web Awards, noting that they did not include another excellent astronomy site on their list?
Maybe my run-on sentences were the problem.
Anyway, here’s the offending passage:
Welcome to Amazing Space, where starstruck students of all ages can while away light-years pelting comets at Jupiter, falling into black holes and building the Milky Way piece by piece.
Maybe I should send them here. Ironically, had they chosen my site they might have gotten that passage right. ;-)
