My gravatar is a micrograph of the teeth on the working end of the radula of an Eastern Beaded Chiton, a marine mollusk, and the subject of my PhD research.

comment Why is space a vacuum?
@BrianFunt Looks like the numbers for the density in interstellar space in Wikipedia from Tadokoro 1968 based on equipartition of energy were determined differently than the total mass of the observable universe given in the book "The Goldilocks Enigma" by Davies 2003. I don't have this book so I can't check where this number was from.
