    I've often wondered about looking for the paths of focal lines that might allow for an image of our system to stand out from afar.

    One thing that makes me scratch my head just a tad is how there is a warm spot for higher energy particles "in the direction of the constellation Ursa Major:"
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh-My-God_particle

    There also seem to be planets nearby: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/47_Ursae_Majoris

    Heck of a way to say hello?

    That system has some impressive names "Chalawan" for the star and Taphao Thong and Taphao Kaew for the planets.

    "Simulations suggest that the inner part of the habitable zone of 47 Ursae Majoris could host a terrestrial planet in a stable orbit"

    A new field of research:

    Epicatalysis could enable a number of new applications, including chemical streams enriched in high-energy or desirable reactants; lower operating temperatures for chemical reactions; novel forms of alternative energy, and options for green chemistry.
