This is a documentary which portrays the birth of the solar system, the birth of the Earth, and the emergence and evolution of life on Earth depicted through latest research activities.
Planets in our Universe can get extremely large, but stars get even bigger. In this video we explore the sizes of moons, planets, stars, and even beyond, including black holes and even galaxies.
Basically a comparison of the entire Universe.
Astronomers from MIT registered a repeating signal from 500 million light years away. Such signals are called fast radio bursts, or FRBs, and they’re usually singular events. No one knows what their sources are, but they could be supernovae or bursts of energy from quasars. This repeating one, though, is pretty creepy because it’s regular: for four days, radio equipment captures signals all the time, and then they abruptly stop. But after 12 days, the same pattern begins: 4 days of constant radio bursts and 12 more days of silence.
You might be familiar with the type of optical illusions that hide several images within one. But did you know that what you see first in such an image can speak volumes about your personality? You might see one thing in the image, yet someone else will try to convince you that it’s another. And that’s exactly why optical illusions can be like a personality test.
Scientists and archaeologists are making new, incredible discoveries all the time about the history of Earth’s civilizations. Here are some of the most important–and the most bizarre–findings.
Finding a historically significant artifact is only half of the battle for an archaeologist. As soon as they’ve located an object or a place, their next job is to explain its purpose or its history. That isn’t always possible for them, and nor is it always possible for their fellow experts, who they contact when they get stuck! That means some of the most amazing discoveries of recent times are currently unexplained, so we’ve put them together in this video for you to see if you can solve the mysteries!
