why science has become cool to me

My research over the last few years has caused me to gain a new interest in science. I've been paying attention to a number of astronomy-related developments, and here are some things I've learned:

  • There is a moon of Saturn which has lakes made of polyethylene.
  • One moon of Saturn has volcanoes which spew ice into space...those ice chunks are a large part of Saturn's rings.
  • The Hubble has photographed dark matter.
  • Mars has huge ice sheets below its surface.

These discoveries make me realize how much more exciting science is than scifi. Sorry I don't have links for any of these, but I'm gonna start posting this kind of stuff when I see it.
