China’s Tiangong Space Station vs the ISS interiors [Side-by-Side Comparison]

Here’s an interesting side-by-side comparison of the interiors of China’s Tiangong space station vs the International Space Station (ISS). Tiangong looks way futuristic, that’s what actually future space stations look like in science-fiction movies. The good, old ISS clearly shows its age.

Voyager 1 is in serious trouble and sending indecipherable data

NASA’s Voyager 1 probe, a pivotal instrument in studying the outer Solar System, is currently facing communication difficulties. Launched in 1977, its main purpose has been to gather and send back information about the transition zone between the heliosphere (the Sun’s protective bubble, encompassing the Solar System, shielding it from interstellar radiation and cosmic rays) …

Lunar Rover Vehicle Speed Record was Broken on December 13, 1972

The Lunar Roving Vehicle (LRV), an engineering feat designed for lunar exploration, played a crucial role in the later Apollo missions. Given its delicate structure and the unique challenges of the Moon’s surface, astronauts were instructed to handle the LRV with utmost caution. The vehicle, powered by a modest 1 horsepower, initially had a speed …

Can Alligators and Crocodiles Mate? Understanding Their Evolutionary Paths

Alligators and crocodiles are often mistaken for one another due to their apparent physical similarities. However, appearances can be deceiving. These reptiles, though looking similar to us, belong to different families and have evolved separately for millions of years.

Here’s why winters are colder despite Global Warming [Polar Vortex Collapse explained]

Despite human-induced climate change (global warming), a seemingly paradoxical phenomenon has been observed: harsher winters in some regions. Central to understanding this phenomenon is the polar vortex, a vast whirlpool of cold air encircling the poles, strongest in winter. However, under the influence of global warming, this vortex can weaken and even collapse. This disruption, …

From Red to Blue: Micro and Macro Evolution Explained

Evolution works through a process akin to a color spectrum gradually shifting from red to blue, where minute changes accumulate over time to result in significant transformations. This concept offers a vivid understanding of micro-evolution, characterized by small and subtle adjustments that are almost imperceptible on their own. Over extended periods, these incremental changes lead …
