Top 15 Amazing Science Fiction Facts that will blow your Mind
What Are the Most Buzzing Science Facts About Science? Science is a subject that has fascinated scientists for years, and now they are looking at new ways to keep it interesting. So what are the fascinating scientific facts? That's a question many people are asking, and if you are not familiar with the subjects, you might be surprised to find out just how much there is to discover.
Magic and Ancient Civilizations
Magic and Ancient Civilizations... did they have a lost ancient form of physics science they used? When we think of magic today, we picture magicians on stage with their top hat 🎩 and wand. Performing illusions but not real magic. What if the ancients for example the Ancient Egyptians or Ancient Druids, practiced real magic? But what if this magic wasn’t really magic at all but an advanced form of physics or quantum physics? What if they knew how to alter reality and matter? How do you say, through the practice of vibrations and frequencies. As science has discovered all is frequency and vibrations, we are how we are and matter is how it is due to its frequency and vibrations of the atoms that create it or us. So what if they had a secret sacred science which they used acoustics or certain frequencies and vibrations to alter reality or matter? For example changing the frequency and vibrations of a giant stone into that of a feather, now that stone can be moved and placed anywhere by anyone.
This is Why a Scientist Painted Eyes on Cow Bums
Why did a scientist paint large eyes on the backsides of cows? To train lions. It isn’t a joke that you have missed the punchline on, but a solution to the problem of lions killing the livestock of subsistence farmers in rural Botswana.
EXTREME WEIRD CRAP!
. The following text is NOT what I personally believe (At all! Even a bit!) but rather 'playing with thoughts', the same way you might ideally fidget with a piece of string.
Visualizing Pollution from Detroit’s Waste to Energy Plant
***** Good news! Snice this research was first done while I was a graduate student the city of Detroit has shut down the polluting WTE plant. *****
Twisting and twirling they drift gently towards the Earth, none two alike and each mesmerizing in their own uniqueness and beauty. They signify purity and a new beginning coming forth from the heavens and experiencing a whole new world. Unaware of what their surroundings hold and dancing through the air to the tunes of the wind, sometimes catching the warm dazzling sunshine, sometimes drifting aimlessly in the dark of night and sometimes being swept into a furious blizzard. Yet each one has its own splendor and intricacies to put forth along their journey.
"TIME TRAVEL IS IMPOSSIBLE" When Hong Kong Got It All WRONG...
The headlines were splashed all across the world. Time Travel Proven Impossible. Time Travel Is Impossible: Claim Scientists. Researchers Claim Time Machines Are Impossible, Why time travel will remain a sci-fi fantasy: Scientists prove nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, etc.etc.etc. So much so that it seemed that it was a done deal - time travel is impossible and there was nothing to be done about it, except, the headlines were wrong. Any astute engineer or quantum mechanic that paid attention to some, such as the last one listed here, or read the articles, realized that the media madness was all bullocks based on baloney. What was the clue? The fact that this profound proclamation was derived solely from the discovery that a photon couldn't go faster than the speed of light and the outdated assumption that going faster than light is the way to flip the direction of time and thus accomplish time travel. That's right. Outdated. As in no one that knows anything about time travel pays attention to that anymore. That's like taking seriously the scene where Superman flies around the Earth in the opposite direction of its rotation to go back in time to save Lois Lane.
Building Resiliency Amidst Crumbling Sea Walls Through Green Infrastructure
Abstract: The 2017 Global Climate Risk Index, rated Mozambique as the country with the greatest climate risk in 2015. This is due to flooding, which left the Northern portion of the country without power for three months. Mozambique was rated 22nd for the whole period between 1992-2015. Northern Mozambique is expected to see more intense flooding as climate changes progresses. Here the focus is on the coastal city of Angoche, in the province of Nampula in Northern Mozambique. The city was originally part of an Arab sultanate. Angoche resisted conquest until 1910. Angoche has a distinct language, eKoti, and is relatively isolated from the provincial capital, 200 km to north because it lacks a tarred road. Most of the city’s infrastructure dates from the colonial era and much of it is crumbling. It is unlikely that the physical infrastructure will be repaired in a timely manner. The floods in 2015 destroyed 10 of the 12 bridges on the main roads between Angoche and the capital and by 2016 only one of the bridges had been repaired. The city must increase its resiliency if it is to survive. The city’s best hope may be to shore up its crumbling brick and mortar infrastructure with green infrastructure in the form on mangroves and conservation agriculture. These strategies will adapt to and mitigate climate change by reducing the severity of flooding, while simultaneously sinking carbon and increasing the city’s food security.
A Brief Explanation of Power in Your Home
Electricity is easy to take for granted. We all use many appliances throughout the day, such as lights, toasters, phone chargers, and computers. For such electrical devices, the only interface we have is a wall switch or an outlet. Most of the work goes on out of sight behind the walls. As a testament to how much we depend on electricity, unexpected power outages can be quite crippling. Electric stoves and microwaves cannot be used to cook meals. Food cannot be kept for long without refrigeration. Depending on your location, hot weather is miserable without air conditioning. If you've ever wondered how all this is possible, there are several devices used to bring power to your home.
