They showed the episode with the brains the other night and I noticed when Leela is in Nibbler's ship her ponytail is outside and is flapping in the wind, there's no wind in space! I hope someone got fired for this mistake. WORST EPISODE EVER, just because of that. Haha. Anyway another thing I was thinking is where the hell did nibbler get that ship anyway? Don't make no sense to me.

A wizard? In space? How is a midevil conjourer going to survive in vacumm? That doesn't make sense.

The exhaust from the rockets on Nibbler's spaceship probably made the ponytail flap around.

This is explained on the Dvd commentary, and yes it is the rockets.

Nibbler probably just had the ship hidden there. Am I missing something?

Shouldn't Leela not have that bit of hair ripped off, if it is in space? What're we to believe this is some sort of magic hair piece? Jeez, I hope someone got fired for that blunder.

Shouldn't Leela not exist?  After all, she is a pilot with only one eye and no depth perception.  Shouldn't she have crashed into a large sun, in space and be dead?  I hope someone got fired for giving her only one eye.

When I first saw the title of this thread, I thought it was gonna be about someone thinking 'Bendin in the Wind' was a blowful ep. Luckiliy I was wrong.

He's a wizard in a spacesuit... or a spaceship. and he's invisible. Also, you can't hear his spaceship. Hehe.

Maybe her hair was fluttering cause of the engines. That is a logical enough explanation.

Maybe vibrations in the ship are being transmitted as a wave down her hair.

-Less likely than the exhaust though.

--Less fun than the wizard though  :)

It could be that by speeding up the speed of light, space started to have some athmospheric effects.

Actually, there is such a thing as solar wind, though it isn't really wind as we define wind, and its effects are negligible.

Then why did you post? Because I'm technically correct -- the best kind of correct!

Not negligible, it will effect satelites and probes.  The solar sail propulsion system theoretically could use it to drive craft in the solar system.  But it shoudn't wave hair around.  Then again, assuming the speed of light is much, much faster, cosmic rays and particles would have much more energy (e=mc^2, after all), so maybe they could whip around Leela's hair.

Is it true that if the universe were to stop expanding, then space would become white instead of black?

Just out of curiosity and all...

Here is a little something that I found on the web,  This is my understanding of the situation:

 
Quote
In a universe of infinite age and size, every line of sight should end in a star, so why is the night sky largely dark? Assuming a similar average density of stars throughout the universe, then the number of stars in a particular direction increases proportional to distance away. However, the intensity of light from distant stars diminishes proportional to the SQUARE of distance away. Therefore the total average light from any particular direction is inversely proportional to the distance of the nearest star, so some/most directions will appear dark.

Now note, the Universe is neither infinite in size nor age.  But, given enough time, there would be enough stars to fill in the gaps.  You would end up with a night sky that looked either like the Milkyway looks at night to a continuous haze of white.

But, since the Universe is expanding, everything gets farther apart before the light can build up, and we get out dark sky.  If the universe starts to shrink, the reverse would happen (the sky would get lighter and lighter with time).

Hope that helps.  I'm sure there is a physicist somewhere lurking that can expand on this.

In case this confuses you, he's reffering to the Simpsons episode "The Itchy and Scratchy and Poochie show"

You wouldn't be able to hear his spaceship in space anyways, gluh!  In space no one can hear you scream....
