River Bends Through 1,000-Foot Canyons
An astronaut aboard the International Space Station shot this photograph of the Green River flowing through deep, red rock canyons in eastern Utah. A main tributary of the Colorado River, the Green flows 730 miles (1,175 kilometers) through Wyoming, Colorado and Utah. The portion of the Green River in this image is just north of Canyonlands National Park.
Bowknot Bend was named for the way the river loops back on itself. Located in Labyrinth Canyon about 25 miles west of Moab, Utah, this river bend runs 7.5 miles (12 kilometers) in a circular loop and ends up 1,200 feet (360 meters) from where it first started. When the two sides of the river merge someday, Bowknot Bend will break off from the main channel and form a lake.

Nice pic, Doone. It lacks evidence, but who needs that?

13.82 billion years after the Big Bang gave birth to the universe and all matter, some of that matter figured out that that's what happened, and made this handy infographic to explain it.

Yup.

There are are minuscule particles in space.

What the Heck Happened on the Internationsal Space Station?

Any kind of conspiracy theory about it is B/S.

Our Solar System has 127 probable planets and 500+ possibles

It is estimated that there may be 200 dwarf planets in the Kuiper belt of the outer Solar System and possibly more than 10,000 in the region beyond. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) has accepted four as official dwarf planets: Pluto, Eris, Haumea, and Makemake, as well as Ceres in the inner Solar System.
Philip Metzger has recently published a case that all dwarf planets are planets. The qualifying feature of a dwarf planet is that it “has sufficient mass for its self-gravity to overcome rigid-body forces so that it assumes a hydrostatic equilibrium (nearly round) shape” is enough to categorize as a planet.
We have 8 official planets and one or two likely planet 9 and 10 candidates which have some evidence but have not been found.
According to Mike Brown of Thu Jun 21 2018 there are:
10 objects which are nearly certainly dwarf planets,
16 objects which are highly likely to be dwarf planets (not recounting the certain),
39 objects which are likely to be dwarf planets (not recounting certain and highly likely),
88 objects which are probably dwarf planets (without recounting above categories)
573 objects which are possibly dwarf planets (without recounting above categories).
