Have you ever experienced those moments where time seems to sprint by in some instances and crawl at a snail’s pace in others? Whether it’s the joy of spending time with a cherished friend or the tedium of being stuck in sweltering traffic, time can play tricks on our perception. Yet, despite these fluctuations, time itself is often believed to be constant, ticking away at the same steady rate, or so we thought.
Wow, you’re zipping through space, in a large ship as big as 3 New York City Central Parks. There’s a lot of commotion going on. No, it’s not some alien invading the spaceship... it’s a very important day. The date is January, 22nd, 2700. You’ve just been born, outside of the Earth’s atmosphere. Happy Birthday!There’s a medical team attending to everything, futuristic gadgets help out with every aspect.

You can’t even see Earth anymore, the spaceship is flying to a new destination millions of miles away. ETA on reaching that new host planet, decades.
What do you know about the weird and wacky world of states of matter? Most of us know that matter can be solid, liquid, and gas. Some of us even know about a special fourth state called plasma. But what about the extraordinary states that behave in crazy ways, like dancing and color-changing? Forget what you thought you knew about solids, liquids, and gasses, because we’re diving into the wild side of physics. Let’s go.
Joseph Walker is about to have an historic flight, but he does not know of it yet. He smiles at his chase pilot showing the “OK” sign and closes the cockpit of his steel friend — the newest unpowered rocket plane, X-15. It’s placed under the wing of a B52 bomber. They take off and go up to 45,000 feet. Joseph is calm and full of joy because he has been getting ready for this moment his whole life. He trusts his steel-winged friend like no other. The bomber drops the X-15. The rockets fire up, and with a fantastic thrust, Joe flies steeply toward the edge of space.
We all know about black holes. But what about their mysterious twin siblings — white holes? Have you ever even heard about these guys? Do they even exist? And the most important question of them all — are these two actually a big interdimensional portal? Let’s find out. A black hole is a creepy space object with an INCREDIBLY strong attractive force. Its gravitation is so great that even light cannot escape from it. That’s why it seems black to us.
The search for ET is on! It’s most definitely on. With the successful launch of the James Webb Telescope, the search for Earth-like planets has become a riveting topic of worldwide attention. Apart from the James Webb Telescope, other tools are being used to find good “Earth-like” candidates. The TESS satellite and the Kepler telescope are at the forefront of searching for other Earths. After we first clear the air of a few pesky philosophical questions, we will take a close look at these two searches — and what the James Webb Telescope hopes to find. So, why are we searching for Earth-like planets? Because we can!
You might think falling into a black hole is as easy as falling into a giant pit. But boy, is it a whole different ball game! To actually fall into a black hole, you would need some incredible luck and a dash of wizardry. Moreover, if you were watching something fall into a black hole, you wouldn’t even see it! Why? Well, let’s try to understand the magic of physics. Falling into a black hole is really, really tricky. First of all, to even have a chance of doing this, you would need to aim perfectly and start your journey from very far away. It’s like trying to hit a tiny target from a long distance.
Movies don’t always match reality. On some occasions, taking a creative license can help make a story more entertaining. However, some filmmakers can go overboard with narrative liberties, and this can result in stories that defy the laws of physics. So we’ll show you 10 cases in which some films ignored reality and offered us incredibly illogical scenes.
According to research, the first few years of a child’s life are critical for learning. And playtime is the best way for kids to learn how the world works. It pulls together the logical and creative parts of the brain — this includes the bath time experience as well.Oftentimes, kids don’t like bath time because of the change of temperature, the fact that it’s slippery, or because they easily get water in their eyes. But getting some toys is a great idea to make bath time fun for your kid.
There are some people who are against tattoos, and others that are willing to get a new one every month. No matter how you feel about this type of art, you can probably agree that many of them are actually quite meaningful. Though, sometimes, it’s hard to understand why anyone would get a tattoo of a big frog or a crocheted acorn.
In most optical and photographic illusions, what we see in front of our eyes disagrees with the laws of physics and reality. But a second and maybe third look shows us the actual truth instead of the illusion. And we can be so surprised that we fall into a trap, seeing something that was never there in the first place. The reason behind this may be the fact that humans like being caught off guard, since they might learn something new.
Although none of us live in a magical land (unless you’re a wizard, of course), people come across puzzling things every once in a while. Whether it ends up being a mere optical illusion or the wondrous work of nature, these eye traps are caught on camera by the most attentive ones. They end up on social media where folks give their best attempt at figuring out what exactly is going on.
You have seen it with Spider-Man, but a hypothetical multiverse is more fact than fiction — physicists trying to understand the world predict there might be infinite universes with infinite versions of you. With that being said, now we are going to explore the vastness of the multiverse without the need to drop your phone or leave the couch.Bright Side will show you 15 pictures that are so bizarre and fascinating that they totally look like they capture something that came from another world.
It’s said that it’s important to be in the right place at the right time but the women we’re showcasing today couldn’t use this piece of advice. All of these women, with their progressive views, were very much ahead of the time they were born in.
Turns out the laws of physics simply do not apply to cats, and they can take whatever shape they wish, just like water. From appearing to flow down the drain to melting away in a container, cat owners are sharing the ways they caught their felines acting like liquid.
Statistics found that 87% of people would like to tell their teachers how much they value their efforts. Luckily, at least 15 of them could do this. They told stories about educators who were nothing less than the coolest people.
Every cat owner has probably asked themselves, “Who is the owner here?” at least once. Because it’s hard to find a more arrogant, inventive, and unpredictable pet. Sometimes owners begin to think that they are immune to the mischief of their beloved pets, but these witty animals find another dozen ways to prove otherwise.
Spectacular films are impressive not only for people that love movies. Those who know a lot about history, physics, and other sciences love these movies too because they can analyze them and point out where the movie creators made mistakes.
Some people are truly extraordinary and show it from an early age. In the fields of science, art, and sports, child prodigies stand out because they manage to reach impossible goals for someone their age. These accomplishments are usually related to their superior intelligence which allowed them to maturely approach a discipline that interests them. These children have surprised us with their fantastic work capacity and dedication to their passions.
In the history of humanity there have been brilliant women who played a fundamental role in science, but despite their outstanding contributions, were never recognized. Some were overshadowed by the men in their lives, a few had to deliberately step aside, and others met an untimely and unfortunate death. Very few of them managed to settle in the scientific world and obtain recognition.
There are many women in the world who deserve recognition for the amazing work they do. These women shape the future of the world and are changing social opinions and stereotypes. For example, nowadays, businesswomen already represent more than 1/3 of all people involved in entrepreneurial activity, and it’s getting better every day.
Talented kids are incredible. As small children, they accomplish goals that some adults never even dream about. Unfortunately, sometimes talent isn’t just about fame and success and some of these stories only prove this fact.
Even if you’re good at physics and know the nature of different phenomena, you just can’t help being surprised at how impressive they are. Let’s just take a look at the pictures that we’ve found for you. The photographers managed to capture ball lightning, an underwater ice sculpture, and even a smoke vortex.
Children of prominent actors, writers, and politicians often follow in their footsteps. But what about grandchildren? It turns out that they do the same. Famous people’s descendants are as beautiful, talented, and aspiring as their grandmas and grandpas.
