Japan Has Invented A Space Cannon:
The space cannon is to be mounted on the Hayabusa-2 vehicle, which will carry it to the asteroid, which orbits between Earth and Mars. This is essentially a kinetic impact weapon that relies on an explosive charge to launch a 4lb slug into the surface. The spacecraft will release the weapon, allowing it to float downward while it takes cover on the opposite side of 1999JU3.
Amalaha says his experiments show that the north and south poles of magnets are attracted to each other — but same poles repel each other. Astoundingly, this “means that man cannot attract another man because they are the same, and a woman should not attract a woman because they are the same. That is how I used physics to prove gay marriage wrong.”
"I beg to differ!"
An unprecedented glimpse of Voyager 1 as seen from Earth
The Voyager 1 spacecraft is over 11 billion miles away, but it’s emitting an extremely faint radio signal that can be detected here on Earth. Recently, astronomers used this signal to create a “photograph” of the now-interstellar probe.
It’s Official! Voyager 1 Spacecraft Has Left Solar System
After streaking through space for nearly 35 years, NASA’s robotic Voyager 1 probe finally left the solar system in August 2012, a study published today (Sept. 12) in the journal Science reports.
“Voyager has boldly gone where no probe has gone before, marking one of the most significant technological achievements in the annals of the history of science, and as it enters interstellar space, it adds a new chapter in human scientific dreams and endeavors,” NASA science chief John Grunsfeld said in a statement.
Here is a great infograph about Voyager’s long and historic journey.
An estimated one third of the population will often sneeze when looking at the sun or a bright source of light; this is due to a genetic quirk known as the photic sneeze reflex; a condition described by neurologists as having to do with crossed wires in the brain.
It actually happens to me all the time.
