Earth’s magnetic field is changing 10 times faster than previously thought

The magnetic field of Earth is constantly changing. And, at the moment, even more rapidly than previously thought – up to 10 times, as British researchers have now figured out. This has significant implications not just for the old-school magnetic compass navigation but also for the proper functioning of telecommunications networks and GPS-and thus for […]

How the moon was formed? An epic exploration of lunar origin theories

How the moon was formed? The most widely accepted theory of the Moon’s origin is known as the Giant Impact Hypothesis. The standard giant impact hypothesis, sometimes called the Big Splash, or the Theia Impact suggests the Mars-sized body, called Theia, impacted Earth, creating a large debris ring around Earth, and the Moon formed out […]

The Sun is less active than sibling stars, study shows – here’s what that could mean

Andrew Norton, The Open University All stars emit varying amounts of light over time – and the Sun is no exception. Such changes in starlight can help us understand how habitable any planets around other stars are – a very active star may bombard its planets with harmful radiation. Now a new study, published in […]

This is why light pollution in cities is a very bad thing

Do you remember when did you see a sky full of stars last? It’s been many years for me, I even can’t remember when I saw last. A lot of young people didn’t see even once, because of the light pollution in cities, since they were born in cities and probably never went to the […]

Draining Earth’s oceans – amazing animation by the JAXA scientist

The Japanese Space Agency (JAXA) and former NASA Goddard Planetary scientist Dr. James O’Donoghue (@physicsJ) created another amazing video. He showed that what if we slowly drain the Earth’s oceans and see the two-thirds of Earth’s surface (that is currently under the oceans) we don’t get to see. In other words, how our planet would […]

Investigating Overpopulation: The Solutions

Urbanization is just one of the many effects of overpopulation here on Earth, along with the rapid dwindling of the natural environment as a whole. The general consensus across the scientific community is that a number of factors have contributed to global overpopulation. More than 7.7 billion people live on Earth as of 2020, largely […]
