If you saw a wormhole, in reality, it would appear round, spherical, a bit like a black hole. Light from the other side passes through and gives you a window to a faraway place. Once crossed, the other side comes fully into view with your old home now receding into that shimmering spherical window. But are wormholes real, or are they just magic disguised as physics and maths? If they are real, how do they work and where can we find them?

Playing around with nuclear weapons in videos is fun. There’s a visceral, joy in blowing things up, and a horrifying fascination with things like fireballs, shockwaves, and radiation. And while it does help put our destructive power in perspective, it’s not the best way of understanding the real impact of a nuclear explosion. This isn’t about silly stacks of TNT, or about how bright the explosion is. Nuclear weapons are about you. So, we’re gonna explore what would really happen if a nuclear weapon were detonated in a major city today. Not nuclear war, just one explosion.

We are used to anticipating danger from outer space. A huge almost unknown space, hostile to humans, and no wonder colossal explosions take place, asteroids and comets travel at tremendous speed, there are several black holes out there and all this can potentially cause the death of the Earth. But what about something small? For example, an ordinary sewing needle. What if one finds itself in space, accelerating to the speed of light, and then crashing into our planet. Any object consisting of matter can’t move at the speed of light or faster. So, scientists from NASA are unlikely to…

Neutron stars are one of the most extreme and violent objects in the universe. Giant atomic nuclei, only a few kilometers in diameter, but as massive as stars. And they owe their existence to the death of something majestic.

The Earth rotates once every 23 hours, 56 minutes, and 4 seconds, called the sidereal period, and its circumference is roughly 40,075 kilometers(Approx.). Earth spins at a speed of 1000 miles per hour (1600 km per hour). Sounds odd right, but why don’t we feel anything? We can’t feel the earth rotating because we’re all, including Earth’s oceans and atmosphere, are moving with it, at the same constant speed.

Tutankhamun’s golden mask

Tutankhamun (1342–1325 B.C.) was an ancient Egypt pharaoh, commonly referred to as King Tut. He was the last of his royal family to rule during the end of the 18th dynasty, he ruled from 1334–1325 B.C. during the new kingdom of Egyptian history. His father was the pharaoh Akhenaten, believed to be the mummy found in the tomb KV55, his mother was his father’s sister, identified through DNA testing as an unknown mummy referred to as “the younger lady”, who was found in KV35. Akhenaten ruled for around 1351–1334 B.C.
