For people who are interested in space exploration, 2019 is already becoming a historic year.
The planet Earth presents diverse types of ecosystems that are the result of the combination of the geographical conditions with the specific wildlife conditions for that habitat, this means that each ecosystem presents its own traits. In terrestrial ecosystems, apart from sunlight, plants need water to survive, grow and develop, they obtain it through rain (Importancia, 2010).
Rising sea levels will happen within the next 20 years regardless of whether you believe in climate change or not. A solution to this problem is to build fleets of submarines and tankers designed to harvest the water. We could desalinate it, sending it to dry corners of the world. We have to do something with all that water to prevent it from contributing to rising sea levels. Yes, the scientists give us dire warnings, but have any think tanks sat around while figuring out solutions to this problem?
What a fascinating time to be alive! Welcome to Watchmojo.com, and today we're counting down our picks for the "Top 10 Amazing Scientific Discoveries Made Recently."
This is an object you've probably seen before, maybe as a desk toy or at an institute—whatever, the point is you've seen it. Five metal spheres in a straight line that hang from thin metal wires, it is known as Newton's Cradle and is perhaps one of the greatest objects to display the laws of physics.
Abstract: Regulation of the vertebrate axial skeleton and the driving force behind the evolution of new body forms are due to Hox genes. Many hypotheses over the years have risen using Hox genes to explain snake-body form evolution. This paper will discuss some of those hypotheses.
Physics is a vast and often very perplexing subject for even the greatest of minds; for instance, Richard Feynman is quoted in saying, 'If you think you understand quantum mechanics, you don't understand quantum mechanics.' In this article, I will explore 3 of my favourite physics principles in a simplistic, and easy to digest format.
When Donald Trump absconded from the Paris Climate Accord about one year ago, it set the media ablaze. Attacks from the left and praise from the right, the story eventually fizzled out sight due to other spectacles of “Breaking News.” The United States’ withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreements marks a long history of poor long term investment, crumbling infrastructure, recurrent boom & bust bust business cycles, and underfunded educational systems. Policy has done its best to patch-up the systemic issues mentioned above, but the most looming and greatest existential threat of all is being ignored. Any consideration of transitioning away from fossil fuels or what other countries are doing about climate change gets labeled “un-American” or “liberal nonsense.”
On March 14, 2016 one of the smartest men alive passed away. During his life, he contributed to many theories in the science field and even discovered a few of his own. He was diagnosed with ASL at the age of 21 and was given two years to live. When he died, he was 76 years old. This man, Stephen Hawking, is one of the most famous physicists of all time. One of his most famous quotes goes, “Remember to look up at the stars, not down at your feet.” So, that's what we'll be doing today. Looking into the cosmos at theories on how the universe will end. We’ll be looking at The Big Rip, which, besides its name, is actually the smaller theory here, the Big Freeze that will give you chills, and the Big Crunch that will eat you up.
