These are great fun. But, the astrophysics one needs some work. "Supermassive hole" and "brown dwarf star maser" sound pretty nutty. (Sure, there are masers and probably some happen to be near brown dwarfs. . . but has anyone actually used that phrase before?) "Fast Fourier spectrum" is right on the edge of plausible.

How about:
SMH - Simulated Magneto-Hydrodynamics (yeah, there's usually a "D") or Selected Metal-rich Halos or Substructure in Magnetic Helicity.
FFS - Fast (Friendly? False? Fanciful?) Frequentist Statistics, or Forbidden Fluorine States
BDSM - Broken Deformable Secondary Mirror or Broad Distribution of Stellar Matter or Beta Decay in Silicon-rich Mantles

Now if I only knew what SMH actually means. . .

I've used/spread the communism and decolonisation ones through friends and family. Always enjoy a meme that teaches and amuses. Moving that Overton window.
