It was only a matter of time before the Avengers inspired scientists to actually develop super suits to use in battle. To be fair, the military has always experimented with new ways to take down enemies, including more advanced uniforms, but now scientists are actually developing supersuits that aren't for flight, superhuman strength or invisibility, but the kind that can improve the lives of normal human beings.
Freaky news stories are always plentiful. Here are just a few recent stories...
Scientists found some incredible hydrothermal vents at the bottom of the ocean and they are pretty incredible. I'm always amazed at what we can find in our own oceans. You have to see these pictures to believe them.
Voicing that there's alien life off the planet Earth used to be met with scorn, but today most people know that beliving there's no life is the erroneous way of thinking. There's not a ton of proof either way, but given the vastness of the universe, it makes much more sense for life to exist elsewhere.
Did you know that in some parts of the world it's possible to hire a robot to photograph your event rather than a person? They can also be purchased to be used as waitresses or information dispensers. You guys, what even is this world anymore? We're going to wake up tomorrow and people will be marrying robots, somehow mating with them and the human race will be long gone.
Everyone is so excited about the photo of a black hole that was released last night, especially scientist Katie Bouman who made it happen (yes, along with many other contributors, but SHE is the reason we have the photo and you never hear every other scientist in history, who all used other scientists' work and data, being as picked apart as she is! STAHP IT NOW).
As a parent, climate change is one of the things that scares me the most. It's almost surpassed violence against my teen in their life and the idea of them driving on my Biggest Fear radar. I can't stand the idea of them not being able to inhabit this planet because of what we, and what our ancestors, have done to it, and the evidence that it's just getting worst continues to mount.
Plenty of movies have explored just why time travel isn't possible, but at the rate of technological development in our time, who really knows? Maybe it will be commonplace, or regulated by FEMA someday. This team of physicists wanted to prove it could be done for just a single particle, for not even a full second, and even though yes, they were able to prove that it's possible, it's not likely at all through real life application.
When it comes to Mother Nature, most of us get how insignificant we are. All it takes is one "natural disaster" to wipe out many of us, and even if we're destroyed via climate change, as it would seem is currently happening, the Earth will probably be fine, healing itself with another Ice Age or something once we are gone. It's a sobering thought, just as bitter as it is sweet, and if there's any consolation for the pain we feel regarding the leaders who refuse to take any action to repair the damage we've done, it's that nature is one resilient force.
You can see slope streaks on the red planet, but what do the lines on Mars really mean? Where do they come from? There are a lot of guesses about what caused the streaks but scientists honestly don't know what has made the streaks appear on Mars. Some have guessed that they were made with water or something "wet," while others guess at something dry, but we're still playing guessing games.
Did you know that there are a bunch of undersea cables that we're all currently relying on in order for us to have Intenet access? Whether or not you did, you may not have realized how vulnerable these cables happen to be. Tonga, a country that has access to just one cable, recently experienced a severe blackout, making us realize just how dangerous it is to have anything happen to these vital cables.
