Overcoming laziness, the Q&A page has finally been updated once again.

1) How many gas clouds are there around M33 ?
All of them.

2) Is Keenan's giant gassy Ring really all that giant ?
Yeah, it's pretty big.

It's tough to see it getting any wronger.

4) What do you think of this press release about dust ?
I hate dust.

5) What will happen if the earth suddenly vanishes from its orbit ?
We will have an interesting day.

6) Why do meteors always land in craters ?
That's where the exogorths live.

7) Will Arecibo's radar attract unwanted attention from passing aliens ?
Good God no.

8) Will the new FAST radio telescope be better at signalling/detecting aliens ?
Yes, but only a little.
