DID YOU KNOW…

Although the mean distance between the Sun and the Earth is 150 million kilometers, the distance itself actually fluctuates yearly. This is because the Earth moves around the Sun on an elliptical orbit, meaning that the distance between the two varies from 147 to 152 million kilometers. The distance between the Sun and the Earth is known as an Astronomical Unit (AU).

Two of the America’s Biggest Earthquake Faults Might Be Linked

“Provocative analysis of sea-floor cores suggests that quakes on the Cascadia fault off California can trigger tremors on the San Andreas.” A controversial study argues that at least eight times in the past 3,000 years, quakes made a one-two punch off the west coast of the United States. A quake hit the Cascadia fault off the coast of northern California, … Continue reading

There is Growing Evidence That the Universe Is Connected by Giant Structures

The Milky Way, the galaxy we live in, is one of hundreds of billions of galaxies strewn across the universe. Their variety is stunning: spirals, ring galaxies shaped like star-studded loops, and ancient galaxies that outshine virtually everything else in the universe. But despite their differences, and the mind-boggling distances between them, scientists have noticed that some galaxies move together … Continue reading

First-Ever Mass-Produced ‘Fly & Drive Car’ to Be Unveiled in Miami

The three-wheeled machine – dubbed the Pioneer Personal Air Landing Vehicle (PAL-V) – a 230hp Dutch-made two-seater car boasting 70 pre-orders, is in active production and will reportedly sell for $599,000 . The customer will, however, need both a driving and pilot license to own and operate this vehicle. “While other flying car manufacturers’ concepts require modified regulations and in … Continue reading

Large Asteroid Discovered Last Week Will Make Earth Fly-by on Friday

An asteroid as big as the Egyptian pyramids is zooming towards Earth and will squeeze past us on Friday – if it doesn’t smash on to our home planet’s surface. Named 2019 WR3, NASA expects the space rock to make a “close approach” to Earth later this week. The space agency has classified the asteroid as a “near-Earth object (NEO)” … Continue reading

NASA Study Reveals Blood Clots, Reverse Blood Flow in Astronauts

NASA scientists have discovered an important risk to human health in spaceflight: stagnant or reverse blood flow and blood clots. Karina Marshall-Goebel, a senior scientist at NASA, authored the study, “Assessment of Jugular Venous Blood Flow Stasis and Thrombosis During Spaceflight,” which appeared last week in the Journal of the American Medical Association. She found, of 11 crew members on … Continue reading

Planets Could Be Orbiting Black Holes, Calculations Show Possibility of Bizarre Worlds

Theoreticians in two fields defied the received wisdom that planets only orbit stars like the sun. They proposed the possibility of thousands of planets around a supermassive black hole. “With the right conditions, planets could be formed even in harsh environments, such as around a black hole,” says Keiichi Wada, a professor at Kagoshima University researching active galactic nuclei, luminous … Continue reading

Huge 500ft Asteroid to Fly Past Earth on Monday and Will Be BACK in 7 Years

Traveling more than 60 times faster than a Boeing jet, a huge asteroid is on course to skirt by Earth only to return seven years later. The space rock, called 2019 VF1, was discovered this year and will pass Earth at about 4:09am GMT on Monday. The asteroid is 492 feet in diameter and travels more than 60 times faster … Continue reading

A Fifth Force of Nature May Have Been Discovered

A new paper suggests that the mysterious X17 subatomic particle is indicative of a fifth force of nature. Physicists have long known of four fundamental forces of nature: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force, and the weak nuclear force. Now, they might have evidence of a fifth force. The discovery of a fifth force of nature could help explain the … Continue reading
