#Science: #DISCOVERY’S ‘HOW STUFF IS MADE’ #vetenskap #youtube

30 Oct

I found Discovery’s TV show “How stuff is made” to be very interesting. It grants us knowledge about how different stuff is made. This video is part of a playlist I did find on Youtube and the video that appears is all about soft drinks. I’ve chosen to embed the whole playlist with 168 videos, all of them are about five minutes long. Watch, learn and enjoy!

#Science And #Space: NASA Has Not Predicted A Solar Blackout

27 Oct

There are rumors that circulates around the net claiming a sun blackout will take place in December. The blackout is said to be 3 days long.

NASA has not confirmed this so it’s just a hoax that’s spreading.

#Science: Dark Matter Might Have Been Detected #cosmos #universe #matter #space

24 Oct

“Dark matter seems to be almost a thing of science fiction rather than science. It cannot be seen, but it’s thought to make up around 85 percent of all matter in the entire universe. It’s a web that, stretching throughout space, is believed to give the actual cosmos its very structure… and yet, so far, its detection has eluded science.”

#Science And #Universe: A Small Comet Passet #Mars

19 Oct

A small comet the size of a mounntain passed Mars on Sunday.
This gave space enthusiasts a once-in-a-million-encounter.

The comet, known as Siding Spring (C/2013 A1), made its closest encounter with Mars on Sunday at 2:27 pm (1827 GMT), racing past the Red Planet at a dazzling 126,000 miles (203,000 kilometers) per hour.

At its closet, Siding Spring was 87,000 miles (139,500 kilometers) from Mars — less than half the distance between Earth and our moon.

“Signal confirming closest approach has just been received,” the European Space Agency said on Twitter.

#Science: NASA Sond Fotar Vatten På Mercurium #NASA #MESSENGER

16 Oct

Bilder tagna av MESSENGER sonden, vars namn är en förkortning på MErcury Surface, Space Enviroment, GEochemistry and Ranging föreslår att isen inne i Mercuriums polara kratrar är där sedan inte så aldelles länge sedan.

För över 20 år sedan, har vatten på planeten observerats vilket vart förvånande med tanke på att temperaturen på ytan är 427 grader Celsius.

Under andra halva året 2012 har MESSENGER konfirmerat dessa observationer från omloppsbana från omkring Mercurium, genom att upptäcka permanenta skuggade kratrar nära planetens norr pol.

Se denna video omvatten på Mercurium och hur det hittades (OBS! Engelska förekommer).
