The headline and screen grab used in the youtube thumbnail displayed in the post is generated by the youtuber and can be edited at any time, as can the video. You might not agree with what has been changed but it will still appear in your posts under your name. This is why it is not a good idea to embed anything from a site you do not control unless you trust it 100%.

I watched the episode linked in the first post. It basically says that the building blocks of life are found in the solar system,

That will be the Periodic Table then !

Er ... Yes, ... and Earth scientist's Periodic Table might not be the same as Extra-terrestrial scientist's Periodic Tables elsewhere in the possible Universe ... ahem.

Our discovery of the Universe is in it's infancy, right?? .... also our knowledge regarding Panspermia ... so wise to keep an open mind I guess?!😏

Oh I doubt that very much given what the periodic table represents :)    But you never know maybe our extra terrestrial scientists have indeed found  the island of stability and are awash with super heavy nuclei.

It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.

Plenty of Administratium about...

or Bureaucratium  - I love this explanation of it's negative half life from wikipedia

" A commonly heard description describes it as "having a negative half-life". In other words, the more time passes, the more massive "Bureaucratium" becomes; it only grows larger and more sluggish."

"A little boy in a dream just the other day... His mind fell out of his face and
the wind blew it away". They called him "Astro Man"?!? lol @ Jimi Hendix! 🥳

I admit I have been known to EDIT a post after someone has commented. 🙀
Sometimes, just to clarify the original idea? But I *do* take CARE that the
general meaning is not changed. But then, I see this as a leisure / hobbies
forum... NOT a court of law? Stupid or not, I still give people the benefit of
the doubt? And if these folks stimulate *some* (ANY!) interest in science... 🙃

Possibly but to alter a post without any obvious sign of editing and then attempt to gaslight someone who called it out is not acceptable in my view.

I have added a comment to  my original post to clarify what happened
