Giant Convecting Mud Balls of the Early Solar System

When Prof Phil Bland’s new paper hit the internet with a title of “Giant Convecting Mud Balls of the Early Solar System” published in Science Advances , you know all the science blogs got excited! Give a google of “bland mud balls” and you’ll see just how many ways they tried to describe it pop-sci style… (spoiler alert: it involves “mud” “balls” and “solar system”) 😛 😉
