Someone Managed To Zoom In On The Moon And We All Feel Slightly Uncomfortable

To us, mere mortals, the moon is just a round of cheese that glows super bright in the night sky (and sometimes during dusk hours). But technology goes forward and right now, if you have the cash, you can purchase a super awesome digital camera that can pass over the 239,000 miles between us and the Moon, so that you can take a selfie with it! Telescopes are so overrated. Nikon just released its COOLPIX P900 camera with a zoom so powerful, you can see craters on the moon's surface . Let us remind you that the moon is close to 239,000 miles from Earth. You can see the actual holes on the moon's surface where it's been hit by asteroids and comets thanks to the cameras 83x zoom. It's so powerful you can even watch the moon move across the sky as Earth rotates. The second most awesome feature about that camera is that image is surprisingly stable for such an extreme zoom. If you don’t feel uncomfortable enough just yet, how about checking out this clip of the Moon zoomed in and passing in front of super tiny Saturn . The clip has been recorded just as the Moon passes right in front of the ringed planet, eventually covering the sight of it.

Flaming Meteor Filmed Crashing Down To Earth17s

Flaming Meteor Filmed Crashing Down To Earth

The present is a fun time to live in. It is extremely contradictory. On one hand, we are sending aircraft into space, we are analyzing all of the rocks that are drifting into the black vastness called universe while on the other we still have entire civilizations living in poverty and struggling for the next meal. We are reaching for the stars, but we still don’t know even a half of what the deep blue waters of the oceans hold. It looks as though it’s been ages since we, humans, have been on the planet, but in reality, our existence can be measured in hours relative to the original age of this ball of rock we call home. It seems that even the grandest of inventions are not that grand compared to the complex functioning of the universe, and these facts can get extremely scary. If there is one thing to be sure about, it’s that the future is uncertain. Just think about all of those futuristic books we read about as kids. Usually, they were set in the new millennium, around the time we live in now. They were talking about hovering cars and trips to the Sun, life with a million gadgets and intergalactic friendships, but the reality is much less glamorous. It seems that our imagination will have to work a tad bit longer because we’re so far off track as a civilization, it might take us another millennium to get there. But we’re working on it. We might need space travel for a lot more pressing matters than just exploring new territories. One of the greatest fears of mankind have been meteorites, and rightly so. They have been raining down on the Earth ever since it was created, but sometimes they have been so deadly they have managed to eradicate a whole village, even a whole ecosystem. It is believed that a asteroid was to blame for the disappearance of dinosaurs and the beginning of the Ice Age. It hit just off the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula, changing the face of the planet forever. Protecting ourselves from an onslaught of nasty meteorites is one of the reasons why space travel might come in handy. A meteor was captured crashing down to Earth near a farm in South Africa. The CCTV cameras caught the fiery ball slicing through the sky and crashing behind the trees. Meteors, otherwise called meteorites, are made when little lumps of shake and trash in space fall through a planet's air. Gigantic protest passing Earth 'meandering in interstellar space for ages'. They leave a brilliant trail as they are warmed by the grinding of the air. In the event that they hit the ground, they turn into a shooting star. What did you think about this video? Make sure you tell us more in the comments down below. If you like what you see, don’t forget to share it with others who might like it as well. It just might be the highlight of their day! Enjoy!

What The Betelgeuse Explosion Would Look Like From Earth22s

What The Betelgeuse Explosion Would Look Like From Earth

Orion, the massive star Betelgeuse is dying. It reached the end of its life and currently in the terminal throes of shedding vast bubbles of gas into space. Betelgeuse lies some 430 light-years from Earth. Note that determining distances, especially to red supergiant stars, is an unnerving problem in Astronomy. Estimates vary and are often revised, with some as high as 650 light-years, yet it’s already one of the brightest stars in Earth’s sky. The reason is that Betelgeuse is a supergiant star. However, such brilliance comes at a price. Betelgeuse is one of the most famous stars in the sky because it’s due to explode someday. Its enormous energy requires that the fuel be expended quickly, and in fact Betelgeuse is now near the end of its lifetime. In astronomical terms, someday soon it will run out of fuel, collapse under its own weight, and then rebound in a spectacular supernova explosion. When this happens, Betelgeuse will brighten enormously for a few weeks or months, perhaps as bright as the full moon and visible in broad daylight. When will it happen? Probably not in our lifetimes. But, in fact, no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.

How The London Sky Would Look Like During Total Darkness2m25s

How The London Sky Would Look Like During Total Darkness

Nights in urban cities like London are bathing in light and the only part of the day when people feel like seeing the sky and stars closely, overwhelmed by the universe mysteries, light pollution makes the night sky invisible. The night sky, one of the most beautiful of natural wonders is extinguished from view. That is where this simulation of a time lapse comes into play. A clear summer evening in London. As darkness falls, the light of the Sun is replaced by the glow of the city. But if the lights were to be switched off then the invisible would become visible. The concept of ‘Blackout city’ is well-developed by Nicholas Buer- a Uk-based photographer. He shows an experimental time lapse film that makes the invisible, visible. Nicholas helps people see what the night sky would look like if there were to be a total blackout in the South East of England on a clear, moonless, summer night. People might find darkness strange and living in the heart of the city, they are used to having the warming, orange glow of street lamps outside windows. But the blackness in this simulation is something that nobody have experienced so far-one that is almost absolute. By tilting the head skyward, a millions of bright stars could be seen clearly dotted on the black canvas of night. The pitch-dark curtain draped over the sky and the twisted shapes that stars make against the blackness is something that could never escape one’s memory. The milky speckles are dancing along the sky in various patterns and the whole view makes you only smile. Staring at this starry sky calms the storm in one’s heart and frees one’s mind.

NASA Created An Airless Chainmail Tire That Transforms Shape18s

NASA Created An Airless Chainmail Tire That Transforms Shape

Stretch a slinky toy too far, and eventually the metal coil will be warped so much it won’t be able to return to its original spring shape. That’s a problem also faced by the metal spring tires designed to roll across our Moon, and other planets our rovers are exploring. Hopefully NASA has created an alternative tire, made from titanium, that can tackle any terrain and always return to its original tire shape! NASA "reinvented" the wheel with this incredible airless chainmail tire intended to withstand the harsh terrains of a "Martian or lunar environment." This tire is capable of returning to its original shape after deforming all the way down to the axle. NASA Glenn Research Center has just reinvented the wheel, introducing a new tire that can get back to its original shape after having undergone deformation. This invention was perfected thanks to a shape memory alloy based on nickel-titanium. Nasa will use these shape shifting chainmail tires on future rovers to survive the punishing terrains on alien planets. Regardless of how many rocks it rolls over, this super elastic tire will return to its previous shape like nothing happened. Originally created for future Mars missions, NASA researchers believe that this technology has the potential to someday revolutionize earth tires. Whether it's on Earth or on Mars, exploration of any terrain requires mobility which means good tires. In order to avoid flat tire during explorations of alien planets, Nasa has developed this chainmail tire. Its innovative design is made out of an alloy that remembers its original shape after it has rolled over something, removing the risk of dents. How neat! Credit to 'NASA Glenn Research Center'.

Betelgeuse - The 'Killer' Star That Could Become Supernova1m51s

Betelgeuse - The 'Killer' Star That Could Become Supernova

At first glance, Betelgeuse may look like a random orange blob but in fact it is an image that reveals one of the biggest stars ever seen. Betelgeuse, also known as a ‘killer star’, is one of the largest stars known to astronomers with a radius about 1,400 times larger than that of the Sun. The Betelgeuse star is not only famous for its size and brightness but because it is only about 600 light-years away in the constellation of Orion (The Hunter)- a bright winter constellation in the Northern Hemisphere. Betelgeuse is so vast — its size would extend beyond Jupiter's orbit if it were placed in the sun's position in the solar system and is now near the end of its lifetime. It is just about eight million years old, but is already on the verge of becoming a supernova . This red supergiant burns brightly, causing it to have only a short life expectancy. It is shedding gas and dust at tremendous rates. When that happens, the resulting explosion will be visible from Earth, even in broad daylight. When astronomers say Betelgeuse is expected to explode soon, they mean shortly in astronomical terms: within a million years. But predicting exactly when it will turn into a supernova is difficult, however, as it depends on precise calculations of its mass as well as an understanding of what is going on inside the star. So, one is sure, the explosion won’t happen in our lifetime. But in fact no one really knows. It could be tomorrow or a million years in the future.

SpaceX Unveils Cheap Travel Anywhere On Earth Within An Hour1m57s

SpaceX Unveils Cheap Travel Anywhere On Earth Within An Hour

While unveiling recent plans for Moon and Mars travel, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk ended his showcase talk with more promising news. Using the same interplanetary rocket system for long-distance travel on Earth - meaning you could theatrically travel to any city within an hour! The BFR, as it’s called, which is variously said to stand for either Big Falcon Rocket or Big F*cking Rocket, would travel at speeds approaching 17,000 mph. In theory, the rocket could reach any destination on Earth within an hour. Most trips would take less than half an hour, the head of Tesla and SpaceX said during his presentation at the International Astronautical Congress in Australia. “Cost per seat should be about the same as full fare economy in an aircraft,” Musk wrote on Instagram after the event. “Forgot to mention that.” That being said, this means that a trip from New York to Los Angeles, which currently takes between 5 and 6 hours, would be reduced to 25 minutes. The 15-hour flight from New York to Shanghai would take just 39 minutes. The clip you see here is an animation released by SpaceX, showing the rockets leaving from and arriving on offshore platforms just outside of each city. Credit to 'SpaceX'.

This Is How Space Travel Affects The Human Body1m45s

This Is How Space Travel Affects The Human Body

Space travel has surprising effects on both physical and mental health. Sure, it looks pretty awesome to be an astronaut, going up there where there is no gravity and it seems that you can almost touch the stars. Astronauts always like to prove how cool their job is, maintaining profiles on social media and sharing all of these incredible photos and footages. But the lack of gravity can actually be a real downer, pun intended, affecting both the physical and mental health of those who dwell in space for extended period of time. Wanna be taller? Apparently, living in zero gravity will expand the vertebrae, making you grow up to 3%. Sad to say, you will shrink down to your normal height once you touch down on Earth. Oh, vanity. But it isn’t all good news up there. Weightlessness also causes loss in bone density and muscle atrophy. Not doing weight-resistant activities can do that to a human body. That is why astronauts have personal gyms in space, to combat this effect. They exercise regularly and maintain a good diet. Space vacuum is also known to affect the size and shape of the heart muscle. Zero gravity lowers blood pressure and slows down the heart rate, which in turn decreases the flow of blood through the body. Isolation in space also weakens the immune system, allowing unearthly microbes to pass from food and other to you. Radiation and stress also play a huge factor. Last, but not least, being isolated so far away from any living creature on this planet can put you at serious risk of depression and sleep disorders. Since there is only 90 minutes of light-dark cycle, the same we experience in 24 hours down here, it takes a serious dedication to exercise and proper sleeping habits to reduce these changes. All goes back to normal once you come back to sweet, green Earth.

NASA Releases Incredible Visual Simulating 2017's Hurricanes2m12s

NASA Releases Incredible Visual Simulating 2017's Hurricanes

You can see the atmosphere by tracking what the wind carries. Tiny particles known as aerosols are carried by the air around the globe, such as smoke, dust, and sea salt which are transported by the air across the globe, making visible weather patterns and other normally invisible physical processes. This visualization uses data from NASA satellites, combined with mathematical models in a computer simulation allow scientists to study the physical processes in our atmosphere. By following the sea salt that is evaporated from the ocean, you can see the storms of the 2017 hurricane season . One of the most noticeable things about the simulation is how far the particles can travel. For example, smoke from fires in the Pacific Northwest gets caught in a weather pattern and pulled all the way across the US and over to Europe. The visualization also shows dust from the Sahara blow into the Gulf of Mexico. To understand the impacts of aerosols, scientists need to study the process as a global system. During the hurricane season in 2017, tropical storms and hurricanes were visible in the visualization because of the sea salt that is captured by the storms. Strong winds at the surface lift the sea salt into the atmosphere and the particles are incorporated into the storm. Computer simulations using NASA's Goddard Earth Observing System (GEOS), a family of mathematical models, allow researchers to see how different processes fit together and evolve as a system. Combined with data from NASA 's Earth observing satellites, the supercomputer simulations enhance scientific understanding of specific chemical, physical and biological processes.

Super Zoom Captures Up-Close Footage Of The Moon

Advanced technology has deprived us of our privacy, however, having state-of-the-art equipment enables capturing impressive footages indeed. In this clip, you can literally see the surface of the moon when filmmaker zooms in 83x on a Nikon Coolpix P900. Amazing! The Moon, the only natural satellite of Earth is a subject of great controversy. Being in a synchronous rotation with our planet, it is the same side that always facing the Earth. The first unmanned mission to the Moon was in 1959 by the Soviet Lunar Program with the first manned landing being Apollo 11 in 1969. The dark side of the Moon has been known to spark lots of controversial topics, because we can never see it. Could aliens set up a base there? Or is it just as dark and desolate as the side we do see? The Moon landing has also been subjected to divided opinions, and there are lots of people out there that believe that the landing never occurred and everything was filmed in a movie studio. Scientists, of course, don't agree with this because, well, it's just not true. Then there are the ‘flat earthers’ that think the Moon is just an illusion, much like the rest of the universe, but this beautiful celestial body is real and it is very interesting to study. We can see the Moon with our bare eye, but if we want to take a closer look we have to use some advanced equipment. In this clip, the filmmaker captured the Moon using the superzoom option of a Nikon Coolpix P900 , and we have to admit, it captures the Moon's beauty in a magnificent way. This digital camera can travel 239,000 miles in space to approach the Moon and take a selfie with it! Telescopes are so overrated now that Nikon released its COOLPIX P900 camera with a zoom so powerful, you can see craters on the moon's surface. Neat!

NASA Goes Out On A Hunt Mission For Aliens

Footage of NASA's TESS - Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite is on its two year mission. A NASA mission, set to launch by June will continue to try to answer the question “Are we alone?”. TESS short for Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite is designed to look for planets beyond our solar system. Over two years, it will scan the entire sky using four cameras created by MIT and monitor 200,000 + stars for dips in brightness, which would indicate a planet passing in front of the star.TESS is expected to identify over 2,000 exoplanets hundreds of which could be Earth-sized. The data will then allow other missions to further explore which planets could support life. The principal goal of the TESS mission is to detect small planets with bright host stars in the solar neighborhood, so that detailed characterizations of the planets and their atmospheres can be performed. ESS will monitor the brightness of more than 200,000 stars during a two year mission, searching for temporary drops in brightness caused by planetary transits. Transits occur when a planet's orbit carries it directly in front of its parent star as viewed from Earth. TESS is expected to catalog more than 1,500 transiting exoplanet candidates, including a sample of ∼500 Earth-sized and ‘Super Earth’ planets, with radii less than twice that of the Earth. TESS will detect small rock-and-ice planets orbiting a diverse range of stellar types and covering a wide span of orbital periods, including rocky worlds in the habitable zones of their host stars.

Massive black hole shreds passing star1m02s

Massive black hole shreds passing star

This artist's rendering illustrates new findings about a star shredded by a black hole. When a star wanders too close to a black hole, intense tidal forces rip the star apart. In these events, called "tidal disruptions", some of the stellar debris is flung outward at high speed while the rest falls toward the black hole. This causes a distinct X-ray flare that can last for a few years. NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory, Swift Gamma-ray Burst Explorer, and ESA/NASA's XMM-Newton collected different pieces of this astronomical puzzle in a tidal disruption event called ASASSN-14li, which was found in an optical search by the All-Sky Automated Survey for Supernovae (ASAS-SN) in November 2014. The event occurred near a supermassive black hole estimated to weigh a few million times the mass of the sun in the center of PGC 043234, a galaxy that lies about 290 million light-years away.

NASA Discovered Seven Earth-Like Planets That Can Support Life41s

NASA Discovered Seven Earth-Like Planets That Can Support Life

NASA has discovered seven Earth-like planets in habitable zone orbiting a nearby star. The system is in the Aquarius constellation, 40 light years away. Because the star is cool, even planets close to it could have liquid water. In addition, their densities suggest that they are rocky like the Earth. NASA says they are the most promising potentially habitable Earth-sized worlds. The system is named TRAPPIST-1 after the telescope that found it. Astronomers working with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope have analysed the atmospheres of two Earth-sized exoplanets beyond our Solar System, concluding that they might be ideal for fostering life. Out of the seven new exoplanets that may be capable of supporting life as we know it, the two most Earth-like alien worlds are most promising. The findings suggest that the two exoplanets, TRAPPIST-1b and TRAPPIST-1c, do not have hydrogen-based atmospheres, which the team says would make them inhospitable, as hydrogen-dense atmospheres usually lead to a devastating greenhouse effect. In addition, the lack of a smothering hydrogen-helium envelope increases the chances for habitability on these planets, team member Nikole Lewis, from the Space Telescope Science Institute in the US, said in a report statement. The study took took place when both of the planets were in front of the star at the same time, an event known as a ‘double-transit’ that only happens once every two years. With both of the planets visible, the team was able to use spectroscopy to find clues as to what their atmospheres are made of. While the exact chemical makeup is still unclear, the team says they were able to rule out that the atmospheres contain high levels of hydrogen and helium, which increases the chances that they might harbour life.

What To Expect Upon Super Blue Blood Moon's Arrival

Nature can be quite the treat. The wonderful blue skies and the almighty sun just breaking through the atmosphere is a godly divine. The skies have always been a mystery to us, although we put lots of effort, time and money towards finding out what lives in the great unknown. We believe that no matter how much time we spend searching through space, that we will always have more to find out and discover. January sky watchers are in for a rare treat: a Blue Moon, a total lunar eclipse and a "<a href=" https://rumble.com/v4aznt-what-is-a-super-blue-moon-eclipse.html " target="_blank">supermoon</a>" all in the same month. A Blue Moon is when two full moons happen in the same calendar month; lunar eclipses occur when the moon passes into Earth's shadow; and "supermoons" happen when the moon's perigee — its closest approach to Earth in a single orbit — coincides with a full moon. In this case, the "supermoon" also happens to be the day of the lunar eclipse. The first full moon of January occurred on the night of Jan. 1 or the morning of Jan. 2, depending on your location. The second full moon and the lunar eclipse will occur on the night of Jan. 31 or the morning of Feb. 1. And the "supermoon" will take place on the night of Jan. 30, which is technically one day before the moon reaches peak fullness, but even NASA is willing to call the event a "supermoon" nonetheless.
