From polished rocks to sparkling jewels, from old artifacts to rare shells — many fascinating things can be found on the beach. And there are people who enjoy both walking on the shore and picking up or snapping pictures of something unique.
The sun is rising, lighting up the trees, swamps, and massive plants of the Yucatán Peninsula. It’s 66 million years before today — the last days of the Mesozoic era. This peaceful world doesn’t know yet that a rock the size of a mountain is nearing Earth at a speed of more than 40,000 mph [(64,000 kph)]. It looks like a fireball that’s growing larger and larger with every passing minute. Soon, it already seems to be bigger than the Sun. Dinos, roaming the prehistoric Earth, don’t know that they have to run, hide, save themselves! Not that it’s going to help.
Frozen plains, mountains with white peaks glistening in the distant sun, and rustic red...snow? Welcome to Pluto, where nothing makes sense anymore... Looking at it from a distance, the ice-ball planet is mostly predictable wintery shades of white and light blue. Once you land on the surface, you’ll notice familiar blue skies as well.But see that whale-shaped red stain running along the equator? Right there to the left of the white heart-shaped region. Thar she blows! This spot is bigger than Alaska, and it’s a mystery to scientists. That’s not red clay soil or anything you’ll see on Earth. That’s Pluto’s version of ice!
Oh boy. You find yourself in the mysterious ruins of an ancient city. You’re the only member of the expedition who has managed to make it here. You’re walking through a dark maze when you accidentally activate a trap! Whoa, that’s a strange sound.Suddenly, a huge rock starts rolling towards you down the hallway! You run as fast as you can, jumping over debris. A final dash, and... Phew! This room looks like a treasury! Gold coins and gems are scattered everywhere.You go wide-eyed with astonishment. That’s enough money to live a life of luxury for decades on end! But it’s not the shiny gold that interests you. It’s an old lamp that lies in the rubble. As soon as you pick it up, the lamp starts shaking, and a huge genie jumps out of it!
Millions of people around the world go out on the streets and rooftops to look at the amazing cosmic phenomenon. Another planet... right next to the Moon! A big red one. At first, everyone’s excited. Mars showing up out of nowhere is having a strange effect on humanity.Just as the moon can affect the psychological and physical state of some people, Mars’s unexpected visit is causing people to behave pretty strangely. Every night, the sky is lit up by the white light of the Moon and the red glow of Mars.Many people get a sort of instant insomnia. Some even stop drinking coffee because they no longer feel sleepy. Mars brings out the energy and a little wildness in people, makes them laugh more, and even drives a few poor people crazy. They begin to go out of their houses more often and enjoy the unusual night sky.
If you could get into the time machine and travel back to 1969, you’d see something spectacular! What you’re looking at isn’t some random desert. It’s one of the most powerful waterfalls — completely dry! In the summer and fall of 1969, the American side of Niagara Falls stayed without water. It lasted 6 months. Researchers wanted to study the rock face of the falls. They were afraid it was going to become too unstable because of erosion. Erosion is the process when natural forces, such as water and wind, wear away earthen materials. For example, if you see glacial ice become muddy, it means erosion is happening.
Now, how about some surreal hidden places to check out? Grab a flashlight and your backpack... and bon voyage! The trip starts in the mountainous country of Switzerland. You travel to the town of Waltensburg in the eastern part of the country. It’s raining, and it’s very cold, but you still make your way to the bottom part of a mountain, where your first adventure awaits. After climbing high up in the mountains, you see a strangely shaped castle. To get there, you must walk up an extremely narrow pathway. “Don’t look down!” you think to yourself. You tighten the straps of your backpack and manage to walk along the pass.
The hunt for interesting exoplanets and life forms somewhere out there in the vast expanse of the Universe keeps going; no stopping here! We’re basically searching for a second Earth — a planet that’s similar to our home and where we could finally find some space friends. We’re not picky, any form of life is fine, even some bacteria-sized organisms. And this search has mostly been going on in the habitable zone around other stars. We also call this the Goldilocks zone. That’s a region where conditions are “bearly” just right for liquid water to exist, whether we’re talking about the surface of a planet or a moon.
The Sun is rising, lighting up the trees, swamps, and massive plants of the Yucatán Peninsula. It’s 66 million years before today — and the last days of the Mesozoic era. This peaceful world doesn’t know yet that a rock the size of a mountain is hurtling toward Earth at a speed of more than 40,000 mph. It looks like a fireball. It’s growing larger and larger with every passing minute. Soon, it seems bigger than the Sun. Dinosaurs roaming the prehistoric Earth don’t know yet that they have to run, hide, save themselves! Not that it’s going to help.
A deep, deep orange sunset...epic. You’re on the deck of a cruise liner somewhere in the Atlantic, the sun dips slowly, merging with the water on the horizon. Next to it, you can see another circle. It’s huge! It looks more like a new planet or a second sun, but this sphere’s located on Earth. It’s a balloon. Humans have been inflating if for months, and in just a few weeks, it’ll be the size of our planet. Nobody knows who exactly came up with this crazy idea. Probably somebody from Bright Side. It’s the year 2121, people live longer and have better lives. At some point they start to come up with weird and wacky things, not just useful ones.
Will rock crush scissors this time? Or will paper cover rock? This is your final attempt at escaping your chores for a month. If your sister wins, you’ll be the one doing them for both of you. Seconds away from that decisive throw, you slow down to think it over. Rock, paper, scissors’ origins date back to the times of the Chinese Han dynasty [206 BCE — 220 AD]. It became more as we know it today in 17th century Japan and had spread worldwide by the early 20th century. Some say it’s a silly random game of chance for two. Others call it a strategic system with a strong psychological foundation. They compete in championships and tournaments for those who take it seriously. If you wanna win one of those, you need to know a thing or two to build your success strategy.
Something’s moving towards our planet that could end all life on Earth. It’s a regular needle weighing about 5 grams. You’re probably wondering why it’s so dangerous. Can something that small really do any harm? It’s hard to say, because it’s moving at the speed of light, and we don’t really know what will happen when it hits.That’s because the idea itself is hypothetical, so it leaves us with a bunch of questions. Here’s the first one: What happens to a sewing needle in space? Could it actually accelerate to the speed of light? The short answer is no. But it’s not that simple. In our universe, nothing that has mass can reach the speed of light. It takes energy to make any object go faster. Since there can’t be an infinite amount of energy, nothing can ever accelerate that much.
DAY 1A small but powerful tremor is shaking the city of Naples, Italy. The news networks are reporting on the event. The experts believe that Mount Vesuvius, the stratovolcano on the Gulf of Naples [Mount Vesuvius], will explode soon — but when?
Yep. There’s ice. All around. As far as the eye can see. A white desert covers the entrance to your cave, the one where you and a bunch of other settlers live.Everyone’s gathered around a fire pit trying to keep warm, telling each other stories about how much snow they saw the other day. Some are running around playing tag, throwing sticks... whatever people used to do for fun 300,000 years ago. You’re one of the earliest Homo Sapiens to ever walk the Earth!Others are sleeping or just resting their eyes. All around the cave, all you can hear are stomachs rumbling, sounds like a wild animal lurking around. You look out the mouth of the cave and see that the storm has cleared. Time to grab some tools and head out as a group!
Ahh, don’t you just love the smell of fresh air in the morning? Imagine you’ve just woken up and done your little morning stretch. You’re about to open your bedroom window to freshen the room up a bit when you notice your windows are stuck. Sure, if it’s wintertime, they might have got frozen overnight. But it can also mean something way more dangerous. Windows may get stuck before one treacherous natural phenomenon, which happens because of the changes in the soil and rock around your house. I’m talking about landslides.
Getting together with old friends is food for the soul. Remembering all those moments we spent together makes us live them again and feel young again.

A keyhole in a rock, a doll inside a wall — it seems like there’s always some level of mystery around us. Stumbling upon something unusual is quite rare, and it’s definitely worth sharing with the whole world.
Gummies that look like raw fish, a cake that resembles a huge hamburger, or a rock that you can’t tell from a chocolate chip cookie: sometimes even most ordinary things can surprise you with their appearance. Even piles of snow on the beach can look like clouds above the horizon if you look at this scenery from the right angle.

We might see a cloud in the sky and think it looks like a fish or that a flower has a face because of its patterns. But sometimes, things really look like something else, like a rock that looks like a piece of steak because of its coloring. These “eye-ceptions” or deceptions on our eyes are illusions that can make us think twice about believing what we see.
There are countless events that have made a mark on the history of humanity in one way or another. And although some of the more important events have overshadowed smaller ones, each one has its importance and encouraged future scientific research.
The 80s were a bold and bright decade that brought us not only crisis, but strong leaders, an industry devoted to video games, a career peak for Michael Jackson, and our topic: wild hairstyles that have never been topped.
