Costume: Don't Blink Jewel!

I have heard of dangerous conventions, but a convention where no one can safely close their eyes, that is a bit much, even for me. blink1 blink2

This is an amazing weeping angel statue in honor of the Doctor Who episode, Blink, worn at Dragon*con this year.  I think I might have freaked out if I saw one of these in a hotel hall.

Unfortunately for Jewel (Firefly/Stargate Atlantis), she blinked.

Behold the Power of Sound in Space!

C.E. Dorsett I really don't know how to take this:

A new model developed by Adam Burrows at the University of Arizona and colleagues suggests that sound waves, not ghostly particles called neutrinos, deal the final blow to stars before they become supernovas (Space.com).

[blink, blink] If it wasn't for sound, stars could not explode? Whoa... I just thought this story got a wow factor off the chart. I love it when science completely baffles me.
