Galactic Ghetto

Updated: Jul 7


What do abandoned spaces, and outer space, have in common? Nothing and everything. Hear me out for a second. Ghetto spots are very similar to phenomenons that happen in the unfathomable vastness of the known universe. They can be like a supernovas that pop up overnight and can be such a hotspot and a hive of activity. However they can burn too bright and get too much attention that they explode and are shut down just as quick. Also they can be very similar to the densest objects known to humans, black holes. People end up getting drawn to the spot so much that they get sucked in and literally skate know where else.


One of these anomalies arose recently. A yellow dwarf, similar to our own sun in the milky way galaxy. It has been around for a while with things being added slowly. Like the sun, "Its gravity holds the solar system together, keeping everything – from the biggest planets to the smallest particles of debris – in its orbit." Substitute planets with "crews" and particles with "rippers" you will see what I'm alluding too.


The moon doesn't have an atmosphere, there's no wind or water to erode or wash away things like Apollo astronughts footprints (that's if you believe they made it there.) That means their footprints, roverprints, spaceship prints, and discarded materials will stay preserved on the moon for a 100 years or more. Jarryds wheel marks on this wall ride nollie out may not quite as long but just as impressive.

There is also the common of problem of junk. Like a satellite, it seems relatively simple to blast it into space. To dispose of it is a different story, so it just floats around in the vacuum of space till it disintegrates. Things like couches, trolleys, bongs etc are the same. Easy to bring to the spot but end up hanging around till they too disintegrate (which is never). However some debris can be use to make sketchy kickers like the one Ben is using below to propel himself to this nose grind.

There is also the race to get things first. The world superpowers are constantly trying to be the first to get somewhere new in the final frontier or discover some new planet/solar system. At a spot people are also racing to get the first NBD or build the next obstacle that will be the favourite thing to session. Marlon back tails a Frankenstein ledge set up that you nearly needed a degree in physics to put together.

Sound waves need a medium to travel through. Since there is no atmosphere in the vacuum of space, the realm between stars will always be eerily silent. No such issue for Jordans feeble ollie out in the rain. The crew watching on were audibly stoked on this one.

It must of been a terrifying thought for the members of the Apollo 11 mission that they would be the first to see if it was possible to land on the moon and make it back to mother earth. Thats putting an incredible amount of trust in scientists, engineers, astro pyhysists to get the maths right. I think Kane would of had a similar thought going through his mind on this nose pick. "Will this sketchy as, water logged cabinet, support my weight. Then will this tetanus riddled metal sign not slice off my leg off on re entry?"

We basically have no idea how many stars there are in the universe. Right now we use our estimate of how many stars there are in our own galaxy, the Milky Way. We then multiply that number by the best guesstimate of the number of galaxies in the universe. After all that math, NASA can only confidently say that say there all zillions of uncountable stars. A zillion is any uncountable amount. Ben also would have navigated an uncountable amount of dangerous chalkies on the approach to this backside tail slide.

Venus has an extremely slow axis rotation that takes about 243 Earth days to complete one full cycle. Funny enough, it takes Venus even less time in Earth days in order to complete one revolution around the sun — 226 to be exact.

Furthermore, the sun rises every 117 Earth days, which means that the sun will rise only two times during each year, which is also all technically in the same day. I wonder if this ever crossed Lloyds mind mid doing this switch front nose that took him less time to do than it will to figure out what that all meant.

More energy from the sun hits Earth every hour than the planet uses in a year. Our star is also so dense that it accounts for a incredible 99 percent of the mass of our entire solar system. That's what allows it to dominate all of the planets gravitationally. Speaking of dominating, that is what Sam is doing with a text book kick flip backside nose blunt on the hottest obstacle at Mavs.
