https://youtu.be/pIc84P4zh_s Many people think that NASA is up to no good. You’ve got your flat Earther’s who say that the whole round Earth thing is a hoax and that it’s designed to keep you from knowing the real truth, which is that NASA likes to use a lot of CGI and none of their space … Continue reading 5 NASA Videos You Are Forbidden From Watching – Top 5s Finest

NASA Finds Perfectly Rectangular Iceberg In Antarctica As If It Was Deliberately Cut – Trevor Nace

NASA just shared a stunning image of a nearly perfect rectangular iceberg in Antarctica. The monolithic slab of ice, floating just off the Larsen C ice shelf appears quite unnatural given the 90-degree angles. NASA took the image as part of Operation IceBridge, a mission to image Earth's polar regions in order to understand how … Continue reading NASA Finds Perfectly Rectangular Iceberg In Antarctica As If It Was Deliberately Cut – Trevor Nace

The International Space Station:How It Works – Documentary Tube

https://youtu.be/SGP6Y0Pnhe4 The International Space Station (ISS) is a space station, or a habitable artificial satellite, in low Earth orbit. Its first component launched into orbit in 1998, and the last pressurised module was fitted in 2011. The station is expected to operate until 2028. Development and assembly of the station continues, with components scheduled for … Continue reading The International Space Station:How It Works – Documentary Tube

The 8-Dimensional Space That Must Be Searched For Alien Life – Emerging Technology from the arXiv

A new mathematical model suggests that signs of extraterrestrial intelligence could be common, for all we know—we’ve barely begun investigating the vastness where they might lie. The Fermi paradox is the contrast between the likelihood of life existing elsewhere in the universe and the lack if evidence for it. This is a significant conundrum. On … Continue reading The 8-Dimensional Space That Must Be Searched For Alien Life – Emerging Technology from the arXiv

Felix Baumgartner Space Jump World Record 2012 (Supersonic Freefall Video)

https://youtu.be/vvbN-cWe0A0 Red Bull Stratos, a mission to the edge of space, will attempt to transcend human limits that have existed for 50 years. Supported by a team of experts Felix Baumgartner plans to ascend to 120,000 feet in a stratospheric balloon and make a freefall jump rushing toward earth at supersonic speeds before parachuting to … Continue reading Felix Baumgartner Space Jump World Record 2012 (Supersonic Freefall Video)

Sea Ice Retreat Could Lead to Rapid Overfishing in the Arctic – Hannah Hoag

The Arctic Ocean has long been the least accessible of the world’s major oceans. But as climate change warms the Arctic twice as fast as anywhere else, the thick sea ice that once made it so forbidding is now beating a hasty retreat. Since 1979, when scientists began using satellites to track changes in the … Continue reading Sea Ice Retreat Could Lead to Rapid Overfishing in the Arctic – Hannah Hoag

Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

A team of scientists from Harvard University and the company Carbon Engineering announced on Thursday that they have found a method to cheaply and directly pull carbon-dioxide pollution out of the atmosphere. If their technique is successfully implemented at scale, it could transform how humanity thinks about the problem of climate change. It could give … Continue reading Climate Change Can Be Stopped by Turning Air Into Gasoline – Robinson Meyer

Climate Change is Helping Crank Up The Temperatures of California’s Heat Waves – Bettina Boxall

California suffered through its hottest July on record, while August has pushed sea-surface temperatures off the San Diego coast to all-time highs. Are these punishing summer heat waves the consequences of global warming or the result of familiar weather patterns? The answer, scientists say, is both.   Climate change is amplifying natural variations in the … Continue reading Climate Change is Helping Crank Up The Temperatures of California’s Heat Waves – Bettina Boxall

When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley

Dramatic weather events happened this past week in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere. There were wildfires in Greece, Scandinavia, and the Western U.S. Flooding followed record rainfalls in the Northeast. And dangerous heat waves settled over the Southwest, Japan, and the U.K. If it continues like this, 2018 could end up being one of … Continue reading When The Weather Is Extreme, Is Climate Change To Blame – Laurel Wamsley

Adding Up the Cost of Climate Change in Lost Lives – Greg Ip

An exhaustive new study focusing only on heat-related damage predicts that by 2099, even with economic growth and adaptation, 1.5 million more people world-wide will die each year because of increased temperatures. PIRatE Lab's insight: Not surprisingly, wealthier places fare better: in Houston, each additional day averaging 35 degrees Celsius (95 Fahrenheit), relative to a … Continue reading Adding Up the Cost of Climate Change in Lost Lives – Greg Ip
