Phil Plait writes Slate’s Bad Astronomy blog and is an astronomer, public speaker, science evangelizer, and author of Death From the Skies!  


Sigh. But at $1700 I suppose it's just a pipe dream. After all, it would be rather ironic to own one since it would add CO2 to the atmosphere. And, of course (wait for it...) I don't want to set the world on fire.

Tip o' the charcoal briquet to Miss Cellania at Neatorama and Laughing Squid.
