Buckle up and ride a rocket through our interactive view of the Solar System to explore our cosmic neighbourhood
This is one of the things that cheer me up when I’m down… the infity of space. A beautifully made,simple game to show how small we are.

A comparison of past land-loss in the USA and current land-loss in Palestine. Something to think about.
And NO,I’m not pro-PLO or anti-israeli,I’m just looking at the events through the eyes of someone who despises war and inequality.
On the search for extraterrestrial life, scientists came up with a new idea of what to look for. Maybe humans are not the only ones who pollute their home planet as if they had another; maybe,some civilization out there does the same. Therefor, scientists suggested to look out for polluted climate around exoplanets to get a step closer to finding neighbors.
The James Web-Spacetelescope will search for planets with atmospheres full of CFCs orbiting white dwarfs.
The picture above shows an artist’s conception of a polluted Earth-like planet; credit lay by #Christine Pulliam (CfA).

The principle of balanced forces seems to be a big thing in theoretical sciences as maths and theoretical physics. For example, one of the most strange things in our universe, the black holes, seem to have a theoretical counterpart, the so-called white hole.
It would work in the complete opposite of the black hole,as being able to spawn an infinite quantity of material. The video above tells some more facts about these theoretical objects.

I’m currently reading Isaac Asimov’s “The 1000-Year-Plan” in which our solar system is called “the Arcturus-system”. Now, how could we define our “universal” address? The picture above shows a simplistic version of where we are. Of course, the scientific way to locate a planetary system is way more complicated, but the picture above gives you a nice point of view on how indifferent we are,compared to space.

Taking street art to the next level, Poster Boy recently created his newest piece of work during the night, which means he could have been discovered by the police or passers-by. It is placed at High Line Park in Chelsey and gives a critical view on the whole street-art-thing by asking what street art actually is.
