I'm not sure why this tickled me so much - possibly just because it's so cool that the Voyagers are 'waaay out there discovering stuff, or maybe it's the phrase "Local Fluff".

Quote
The solar system is passing through an interstellar cloud that physics says should not exist. In the Dec. 24th issue of Nature, a team of scientists reveal how NASA's Voyager spacecraft have solved the mystery.

That's COOL!

I love the "Local Fluff" - I feel like we're flying through cotton candy in the sky. Cheesy  But I also LOVE the fact that the Voyager missions are still out there *doing stuff*.  That's SO COOL!

This was the phrase that got me.  "The existential mystery of the Fluff"

Yup, totally cool how the Voyagers are still out there doing their thing. I also love how dynamic "empty" space is turning out to be. (And on a personal note, I love how my patron star made it into one of the illustrations!)

Is the Local Fluff where fluffy bunnies go when they die?

That was the clincher, for posting it to TC.  I very likely would have anyway, but I did especially have you in mind.

Ha - that's what my brain was trying, and failing, to do with the phrase.  I knew it wanted to make some snarky wordplay about fluffy bunnies, but it never got there.
