Meet the Extreme Exoplanet TOI-561 b
About 280 light years from Earth, a world of molten magma orbits one of the oldest stars in the galaxy. This exoplanet, 50 percent larger than the Earth, whips around its star at a breathtaking clip.
The Danger of Accidentally Killing Someone When Time Traveling
If you were in a time-traveling machine that needed excess speed to actually time travel, like the car from the movie Back to the Future, and you accidentally hit someone, killing the person, would you go to the authorities or simply flee the scene? Yes, it would be a horrible thing to do. So, should time travelers be exempt from accidentally killing someone while in the process of time traveling? That would be a big no, but a tragic incident like that could happen when time-traveling or, at least, when time travel becomes possible.
The Most Powerful Jedi Masters Ranked
The Jedi have been the guardians of good and light in the galaxy for over a thousand generations. Led by their Grandmaster, they are sworn to protect the people of the Republic.

The following is a list of the 10 most powerful Masters that have appeared in the litany of Star Wars media (canon and/or Legends). These are strictly the most powerful Masters, so those who were never granted that rank are excluded form this list.

The Man with the Box Tattoo
A portal exists on my left arm. Simple lines of ink bearing the bends that a canvas made of skin dictates, forms a cube open at one end. When the world around me consumes my will, when this reality pumped by a beating heart and rhythmic breaths misses a beat and grips my throat, I turn to the box on my arm.
What If the World is Only Your Illusion?
What is true reality if the consumption of certain combinations of plant and synthetic chemicals, or even chemical imbalances in our brains, can make us see things that don’t actually exist?
Technology vs Humanity
Ever since the period of the first Industrial Revolution in the nineteenth century, writers, philosophers, politicians and religious leaders have expressed concern about the impact of new technologies on human behavior and values. We are currently living through an era in which information and communication technologies are developing more rapidly than ever before. But how will this new technological revolution affect future generations’ ideas about what it means to be human?
This is What Our Cities Look Like in a World Without Ice
Anybody who had a wading pool or bathtub growing up knows what happens when you try to sit in it and the water’s too high. It makes a wet mess thanks to water sloshing everywhere, and the adults get angry at all the clean-up.

THE LITTLE BLACK BOOK OF DESTINY
The Little Black Book of Destiny Written by Yvette Kendall January 22, 2020 I remember standing next to my grandmother’s bed as a child completely oblivious to the reality that she was dying. In the ’50s, being from the projects on the Southside of Chicago, there was an inherent numbness to sorrow. Poverty and pain were the “Ominous Twins” that all Black people claimed as relatives. Being poor wasn’t just an experience, it was an entity that thickened the air that we breathed. Which is why my little ears perked up when my Granny-Gran uttered to my mom that she had money to give her.
Have You Seen Apollo?
Kane couldn’t function. Without Apollo Kane just couldn’t function. There was something about Earth. It enchanted him ever since he was a child. His parents could never quite understand his fascination for the humans’ homeworld and everything that had to do with it. After all, it wasn’t common for Jaros to have a passion for the study of the ‘blue’ planet.
What if I told you that all of humanity is living with amnesia, that they have forgotten their origins and roots. What if I told you that there is a society that spends huge amounts of money and time to continue to keep humanity in that particular amnesia. To keep us in constant ignorance and a semi-conscious state just to be passive consumers who unconsciously serve the system and do not ask any questions.
“The book, Miss Lorenson.” The tall man with the blue tie spoke again. He was losing his patience, and it wasn’t her fault. “Or you’ll never have access to the bank account again.” The man in the grey tie fingered the IV bag absentmindedly.
Heavy footsteps echoed through a narrow, old, stone hallway as a tall man enveloped in dark robes rushed towards a jagged opening seemingly leading into darkness. He disappeared into the shadows and his footfalls could still be heard as he got further and further away. Outside, completely dark except for the light of the moon, the man emerged almost as if from nowhere had anyone been there to witness it. He ran, never tiring, clutching something in his arms. His pace only slowed with his destination in sight, a lone wharf with a small fishing boat and a waiting man covered in armour and a heavy cloak, a long sword in his hand. The running man slowed to a brisk walk, covering the wharf in a few steps, it’s creaking wood the only sounds in the quiet night.
Monster Zoo, Water Trouble
It was a normal day here at the zoo. The weather was the same as always, gray clouds giving off a hint of potential rain, thunder and lightning. Of course, we never get that. There’s almost never any sunny days either. Just the weird sense that comes before the storm. Kieran Hollow sat at a table by the window of his diner, hoping that maybe today would be just a little different. He was holding his glass of chocolate milk, his half eaten blueberry muffin that his Papa made him sitting there waiting to be finished.
Most Dangerous 11 Year Old
Darkness has surrounded me throughout the entirety of my short life. From the moment my parents were murdered. To the moment I left the orphanage that tried to condemn me for my abilities that I did not ask for. No matter the situation I have found myself in there has always been one constant for me; celestial bodies. I, Marigold Harper, have the ability to harness stars and to produce black holes for my own purpose. These have protected me since the age of 5. Presently I am 11 years old, and free from the planet I called home; Earth.
Where Do We Find Wisdom?
The word wisdom is more than knowledge, more than experience. The American Heritage Dictionary defines it as "the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting". The Shorter Oxford English Dictionary expands this thought by saying "the combination of experience and knowledge with the ability to apply them judiciously".
