Sir David Attenborough isn’t ready to stop teaching us about the wonders of the animal kingdom just yet. The iconic biologist and natural historian is returning to our screens to reprise one of his most famous shows.
You call your beloved cat to have his dinner. Sir Scratchy! Suddenly, you hear loud stomping. The dishes on the dinner table clink with every thump. A painting’s fallen off the wall! Is it an earthquake? No, that’s a cat the size of a pony walking into the dining room! It needs ten times as much food as the average cat. And it purrs like a tractor! No, Scratchy, stop rolling, you’ll turn over the cupboard! Well, this is one possible scenario for the evolution of animals in the future. Climate, water, oxygen in the air, and even gravity are factors that influence the course of evolution. For example, scientists predict that some bird species will gradually lose their warm feathers. In the future, they will basically look like sphinx cats with beaks and wings. The same thing might happen to our pets. Gradually, their fur will become shorter until they’re completely bald.
If you were to look at Earth from the International Space Station at night, you’d be able to see the light of the cities from space! That’s how big our impact as a species is. There are huge multicultural cities all around the world. We’ve built buildings SO high, they nearly disappear out of sight. Cities are built from the ground up for thousands and thousands of people to live in.
Science has just unveiled one of life’s juiciest secrets: men can’t resist curvy women! From ancient instincts to modern desires, the allure of curvier women has stood the test of time. It’s a celebration of fertility, health, and sensuality, leaving men in awe of the timeless elegance and undeniable allure of curvier women. So, ladies, shake what your mama gave you and embrace those curves.
You travel along the coast of the North Atlantic. In your jeep, you’re driving through the jungles and plains, taking amazing pictures of wildlife for your blog. And then you accidentally come upon a place that isn’t marked on any map. It’s a bay with an azure coast. No human has ever set foot here.You’ve discovered a huge footprint of an unknown creature on the sandy beach. The size of the print is more than half of your vehicle. Suddenly, out of the tropical forest that borders with the beach, you hear a deafening roar. Palm trees crack and break as an unknown monster comes out of the jungle. To understand what it is, let’s go back to the past.
The Tennis superstar chose the Met Gala to debut her baby bump. Serena shared a series of super cool pics with her husband, Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, to announce that they are excited to be expecting their second child.
Before the invention of the cell phone, people used to talk to others on their landlines (that were connected to the wall!!). Now, we can’t imagine life without having a phone on us at all times. This is the good thing about evolution — it brings something new into our lives that we never thought we needed. We keep on being presented with gadgets and items that we know will be super useful to us.
Here’s a random thought: try to imagine the animals that could become the new top species...should humans go extinct, that is. Tricky, right? I mean, we are pretty cool with our high intelligence, fashion sense, ability to cook, and smartphones (even if we forget the passwords sometimes). But if we suddenly disappeared, which animals might evolve to develop our skills and build complex societies like we have? Or would they come up with something better?
Some strange seismic activity begins all over the world. Volcanoes on the planet are waking up. But instead of lava, fiery stones, and black ash, they release an invisible gas that slowly fills the atmosphere. This gas is safe for all mammals and insects, but for some reason, it harms people. Gas masks, medications — nothing helps. It’s like Earth says: “Hey, people, I’ve had enough! Get out of here.” To survive, humanity decides to move to a place where gas can’t reach — underwater.
No one expected such a strong storm. It’s too dangerous to sail back to the land because of high waves and winds. But suddenly, you notice a small green island nearby. You and your friend are about 25 miles [40 km] off the coast of Brazil. You were fishing and didn’t notice black clouds obscuring the blue sky. You’re approaching the unknown island and see a coast guard boat behind you. People from there are screaming something to you, but you can’t make out the words because of the thunder. “They tell us we should stay away from that island,” your friend says.
Our ancestors were tough. Tough! They had to fight huge wild animals to survive, and meanwhile, they were hiding in caves, eating forest fruit, socializing, catching animals, and discovering new things, like fire. But even with a tight schedule like this, they had some time left for hobbies and artistic things.
Dinosaurs are some of the most fascinating creatures to have ever walked Earth. It’s a shame that we won’t be able to have Jurassic Park, where we can see some of the coolest creatures come to life. But we are actually living with some creatures that are just as old as dinosaurs, such as crocodiles and sharks. They haven’t changed much since they appeared millions of years ago.
When we look at creatures in the animal kingdom, we often have the following thought: if they have similar traits, they must be related somehow. Zebras, horses, and camels must have some common ancestor. The same goes for dogs and jackals: somewhere back in their lineage, they must have some common great-great-great grand...wolf, right? Well, the way evolution works in nature is way more complex. Take, for instance, convergent evolution, which is when different creatures evolve independently of each other but end up having similar traits.
Hey there, Bright Siders. My name is Tom, and today I welcome you to have a peak into the future. Let’s imagine it’s your Birthday, and the entire family is here to celebrate. It’s a nice group of 562 people. Perfect — it takes a village to put down 1,000 candles. You cooked that 40 layer cake and built that house yourself. With the new average life expectancy, you have enough time to master any hobby in the world.
Did you know that humans are real space people? You were born in Space. Heck, even I was born in Space. We all were born in Space! But for humans to be here on Earth, so many conditions have to be precisely correct that it is highly improbable that we even exist. But we do. First, we — and any other space creatures who might be out there — have to live on a planet orbiting a yellow-ish white star, not a red star or a blue star. Not a blue star because they burn out too quickly — in a few million years — there wouldn’t be time for evolution to do its relatively slow magic and produce intelligent beings. Blue stars also tend to swell up and turn red — when they collapse and explode! It makes it highly unlikely that any civilization could prosper near a blue star.
A rare event in astronomy known as the “black hole merger” will occur in 3 years. 2 massive black holes will collide and merge, forming a single black hole. This allows scientists to study the properties and behavior of black holes in greater detail, as the point of convergence will be visible to telescopes. It’s considered a significant and exciting occurrence and is likely to generate much interest among scientists and those who love science.
Ever wondered what it would be like to hear the sound of a black hole? NASA has got you covered. Here is a screaming black hole. “Screaming, in space?” I thought in space, no one can hear you scream. Well, let me explain. Using a telescope, NASA examined the movements of hot gas in a cluster of galaxies in 2002. Then they converted what they found into a sonification. The sound — how should I put it politely — wasn’t appealing, but that’s okay. After all, you’re able to hear the noise hot gas produces in a cluster of galaxies 250 million light-years away. Hey, would you like to hear the sound gas produces right here on Earth? Uh, never mind.
Your feet are home to around 7,000 nerve endings. They have to be this sensitive to keep you balanced and not flip over. All those nerves constantly send information to your brain. It uses more power to process it than on the data from your entire torso. So, when anything happens to your feet, like extra pressure, change of temperature or stepping on something sharp like Legos — it really hurts a lot!
We all change throughout life, from hair transformations to total style overhauls. In this article, we’ll take you on a journey through the careers of some of the world’s favorite stars, comparing their early days to their current appearances. Keep reading and see how time passed and arrivals transformed or stayed shockingly the same.
Humans have tails. Okay, that sounds weird, I know. But it’s true. While our bodies are still forming in the womb, at around day 31 to 35, you can really start to see it. Right now, you have a tail! It’s inside you. It’s part of your coccyx, to be more precise. If you were to have an X-ray right now and asked the doctor to show you your tail, you’d see some small bony segments at the bottom of your spinel. We lost our tails over decades of evolution. Imagine if we still had our tails, they’d have to redesign pants. Maybe they’d have a special hole or even a tail pocket. Sitting might be a bit uncomfortable, too, to say the least.
You run through the night forest for more than an hour. You’re even faster than a cheetah. You’re not tired or cold. You hear a mouse rustling in the roots of a tree and catch all the smells of the forest. With night vision, you see a bird in the night sky. You can go for months without food or water. Gills allow you to swim underwater freely. This is how evolution made humans in a parallel world. Here, they’re ideal organisms prepared for anything they might meet in the wild.
Shoes have evolved a lot through the years, and while they may have started as simple footwear, they have turned into real fashion statements. There is such a massive variety out there for everyone to choose from that designers feel that they can take a few risks. That’s how we end up seeing pairs that don’t look very conventional or easy for everyday life. Or perhaps there are some people out there who have the courage to wear some of these shoes outside their homes.
Humans that walked on our home planet thousands or even millions of years ago didn’t quite look the way we do today. Those who will live millions of years after us most likely won’t look like how we picture a regular human now. They might even end up looking... a little bit crabby!
Beauty is an abstract term that might be completely subjective. Aside from that, the definition of it changes with time, and its criteria shift and evolve in accordance with society’s definition. There are numerous female celebrities who may be listed among the most attractive people on Earth. And while they may have changed during their lives and before fame, one thing that hasn’t is their beauty.
Imagine a being so powerful, it can suck in entire galaxies, so mysterious, it’s invisible to the naked eye, and so impressive, it bends the very fabric of space and time to its will. Yes, meet my mother. Just kidding. Actually, meet the ultimate superhero of the universe — the black hole star! What is it and how does it work? Let’s find out. The universe is full of marvels, and the black hole star is one of the most impressive ones. It’s a supermassive force that can bend the laws of physics, and a true enigma for scientists to unravel. No wonder science fiction writers find them so captivating!
So we all know that Mother Nature is wise. If she blesses some creature with a particular body part, it should make perfect sense, right? Well yeah ... BUT still some wildlife shots make you wonder if evolution has gone the wrong way. Snakes’ natural design allows them to swallow a whole mouse. But in some cases, this cool ability can turn against them. Yes, snakes can actually swallow themselves. Scientists believe that they mostly do this because of stress, captivity, temperature regulation, hunger, or illness.
The tradition of decorating trees for Christmas started in Germany, back in the sixteenth century. Since then, how we adorn our homes during the winter holidays has deeply evolved. And everyone expresses their holiday spirit in different ways, celebrities included. That’s why we’ve decided to collect a few online posts from some of our favorite stars to check out what their Christmas decorations usually look like.
One of the most stunning women in the world, Julianne Moore, is 62 years old. But she hasn’t let her age affect her mind. Despite having a brilliant career spanning over 4 decades and being one of Hollywood’s top actresses, Julianne Moore hasn’t always been free from self-doubt. Even though she is famous and adored by fans, Moore confessed to feeling pressure from unreasonable beauty standards and she is incredibly self-conscious about her freckles.
Although different cultures speak different languages, one language seems universal across nations — humor. One may think that a sense of humor is an individual thing, but still it bonds us to other people in a way nothing else can. Apparently, humor has evolutionary and biological roots — among other benefits, it is a way to find a compatible mate and it can reflect the environment where you live.
As fashion guru Rachel Zoe once said, “Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak.” And over the years, we have experienced an evolution of style. Celebrities are our reference point when it comes to following trends. Some of them were born with an innate style, and it’s now their children who follow in their footsteps and mark a new era of personality.
Children never cease to amaze us with their witticisms and comments full of innocence. If we think that just one child is an inexhaustible source of curious responses, imagine what happens to teachers when they have many in kindergarten or elementary school classes.
Serena Williams revolutionized women’s tennis due to her powerful style of play, as well as for her 23 Grand Slam singles titles wins during the open era; more wins than any man or woman. In January 2017, Serena won the Australian Open, while being 20 weeks pregnant with her daughter. At 40 years old, the worldwide phenomenon just announced her decision to “evolve away from tennis,” soon after this summer’s U.S. Open.Women have had to settle on motherhood over a career for centuries, and Bright Side is here to show you how Serena successfully juggled both at the same time and how she’s now ready to let go of one.
Shirley Temple was one of Hollywood’s most successful child actors. She was welcomed at 3 years old into the film industry in the 1930’s and quickly became a household name. Since then, countless children have stolen the show with their talent, both on the big and small screens.
Some celebrities are known for their iconic hairstyles — like Jennifer Aniston’s signature blonde tresses, or Ariana Grande’s sky-high ponytail. But there are other stars who like to switch things up by experimenting with their crowning glories. And they’ve managed to pull off not just one, but several amazing looks over the years.
We’ve all heard the saying that the eyes are “the mirror of the soul,” but could this idea be more concrete than we thought? What is the real story behind your eye color, and where did the slew of seemingly endless shades really come from? Whatever the answer may be, one thing’s for sure, eye color is entirely unique, like a fingerprint. That is, nobody else has exactly the same eye color as you. In fact, some recent studies show that our eye color is much more complex than we once thought.
Evolution, as we all probably know, is the change of attributes and features of a species over a long period of time. Everything around us evolves steadily, no matter what it is. Our shape, body parts, and measurements have all transformed, including our DNA, and it all gradually gave us new features. Since we are aware of how we’ve evolved from the past, there are some new theories that indicate how we might look in the future.
