The Last Goodbye

What better way to say farewell than with a slew of costume pictures from this year's (coming) Halloween?

Happy Halloween 2017!
From Ethan Siegel and Starts With A Bang.
Keep looking to the Universe.
And we'll have a lifetime of wonderful things to still explore.

Goodbye, Scienceblogs, it's been an incredible almost-decade. Hope to see you all in all our other endeavors!

So, time to let Scienceblogs go.

Ethan already said where to go next:

I also hope Ragtag Media can provide a full reference of this blog.

I am also greatly thankful for this blog, for Ethan's good work, good comments of all commenters. I had so much good time and hope to continue for sure.

IMHO we had many glorious arguments and discussions here, friendly or otherwise :-)
Kind of like the characters in in Galileo's "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems" (which I never read so far :-)

I'll just guess that your costume is The Queen of Science Fiction. "Girls just want to have fun!"... and I wish you well in that. Party on.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

Seriously, this place has been great and I'm really sad to see it disappear. Not so much the scienceblogs in whole, but Starts with the Bang. I learned a heck of a lot here since 2010 or so when I first stumbled on this blog. And it's thanks to this blog that I expanded my knowledge and understanding of physics a hundred fold. But the articles themselves are only half the story, thank you also for the community that dwells here, for many years of great discussions and debates. So, thank you Ethan, Michael Kelsey, dean, narad, PJ, mobius, omega, Naked Bunny, eric, wow, okthen, sean T, denier etc etc... thank you all for giving a helping hand and insight when I was stuck with some question or topic. Am really gonna miss this place.

Ethan, for the sake of your feet, I hope you aren't wearing high heels under that outfit. Women are masochists when it comes to footwear.
Just be careful, this could happen to you!
It's been an adventure. Take care.

I echo everything @Sinisa Lazarek wrote. The odd group of people posting comments here was really appreciated by me. As for the master himself I can't say enough. It is really, really, incredibly rare that someone so educated will mix it up with the not-so-pedigreed and often outright wrong.

Goodbye is too final. See your comments over at Patreon ; a dollar does not hurt to learn something.

Dear Ethan,
I followed your Blog (My weekly "Must"), since i met you in Tucson.
Thank you for all the knowledges I could "suck-in" and widen my horizon,
