umm… Mission Control? Can we have the blue and orange back?
I think that “composite coloring” as in the numerous Hubble images is completely in order to graphically clarify what it is that Ellie is seeing.
We’re working on it! That’s the trouble with 40 year old technology that’s 8.6 light years away.
Everybody sing! “You’ve got to ac-chen-tu-ate the positive, eliminate the negative, latch onto the affirmative, don’t mess with Mr. In-Be-Tween.”
Thought I needed coffee there for a sec!
Now I’ve got that song in my head. “It’s a small world, after all! It’s a SMALL WORLD, AFTER ALL!” There, now it’s out.
So… I’m guessing planet X species’ eyes are adapted to process the ultraviolet spectrum?
That would make sense, since their star is a lot brighter in UV than ours is. Depending on the composition of Planet X’s atmosphere, I’m thinking you wouldn’t want to visit unless you had some *really* good sunblock, or were an adorable titanium robot.
So THAT must be what Peanut was trying to explain to me that I didn’t quite understand.
The key word begin “adorable”!
The bad news is, it’s going to take us 16 years to tell her to flip it back the other way. The good news is, we can flip the colors ourselves on the receiving end. I hope. We can do that, can’t we? Two negatives make a positive?
And it just flips back to the blue and orange. No full color. Foo!
Boy, if the world looked like that I think I would spend a lot of time throwing up.
I like the malfunction better.
