Animals are a wonderful part of life. Hanging out with them, caring for them and even watching them can lower our blood pressure and put us in better moods. But there are more to our animal friends than meets the eye. Take, for example, these 20 awesome facts about our furry friends. Not only are these things not well known, but they’re also pretty awesome.
At the upper levels of complexity, physics – even to physicists – seems to break down into what essentially comprises a lot of arm waving and confused looks. But that’s no reason to give up. As Richard Feynman once said, “it is my task to convince you not to turn away because you don’t understand it. You see my physics students don’t understand it. That is because I don’t understand it. Nobody does”.
A lot of what we see in the natural world is taken for granted. Sure, we may marvel at the occasional sunset, or check out some neat clouds every once in a while, but for the most part, the amazingness of the world around us tends to go unnoticed. And that’s a shame, because if you know where to look, you’ll see that nature can do things way more impressive than sunsets or clouds. For example:
This astronomy calendar of celestial events contains dates for notable celestial events including moon phases, meteor showers, etc… and other interesting events. Events on the calendar are organized by date, times given in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) must be converted to your local time.
His route is similar to the trajectory of the Chelyabinsk meteorite. He flies by planet, Venus and Mars, and is a real danger for the inhabitants of the earth.
The asteroid was recorded robotic telescope “Master” at a time when he flew past the planet Earth at a distance of approximately 1.496 million kilometers.
Scientists have brought it to the list of potentially dangerous for mankind celestial bodies.
Scientists may have uncovered some startling new information about dark matter and dark energy. They’ve discovered hints that dark matter is slowly being swallowed by dark energy that grows as it interacts with dark matter. This, in turn, is slowly the growth of structure in the cosmos.
Physicists have figured out some extremely fine details of the universe, from the radius of black holes to the behavior of subatomic particles neither of which we can even see. It may surprise you to learn, then, that they lack explanations (or have only recently stumbled upon them) for many common phenomena we observe in daily life. As you’ll learn in the following pages, some of the most mysterious things of all may be those that, on the face of it, seem mundane.
