I like being alone, but I hate the feeling of being lonely.
When you’re alone, you have time for yourself. Your thoughts finally catch up to you. You set your mind on things and everything is just clearer. Nothing’s bothering you and everything just feels right for once.
When you feel lonely, you feel as if no one’s there for you. It feels like no one understands you or is willing to listen. It feels like you’re screaming in a crowded room, but yet not one person looks up.
Watch the Biggest Explosion Ever Seen on the Moon
NASA scientists recorded the biggest explosion from a meteorite impact seen on the moon in eight years of monitoring.
The lunar burst was caused by a 40-kilogram boulder-sized rock slamming into the surface at about 90,000 kph. It generated a flash 10 times brighter than anything seen before, which came from the thermal glow of molten rock at the point of impact.
The moon, like most bodies in the solar system, is subject to relatively frequent bombardment by small space rocks. Most of these objects are fairly tiny, pebble-sized or smaller, but in 2005 NASA set up a specific program to identify how often they occur. The lunar impact team has since identified more than 300 explosions, most of them faint and usually happening at the same time as a meteor shower on Earth. Researchers want to know how often they can expect such impacts, which could come in handy when planning moonwalks during future astronaut trips to our satellite.
The March 17 impact created a blast that was bright enough to be seen from Earth with the naked eye. It may have generated a crater roughly 20 meters wide, which could be imaged by the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter next time it passes over the area, allowing researchers to see a very fresh impact on the moon.
Misconceptions About Falling Objects
Think you know how gravity works? See if you can guess which ball will hit the ground first. And then see if you know why they fell the way they did?
“When you have children….”
No. Not “when”. IF. IF IF IF IF IF IF IF IF. Because “if” does not imply certainty.
Misconceptions About Temperature (part 2)
What is colder a book or an aluminum hard drive? Why does metal feel cold? Why does plastic never feel cold? Are they the same temperature? If so, why do they feel so different?
If we’re friends, there’s a 106% chance that I’m always petrified that you secretly hate me.
