NERDTV: ‘WE ARE STAR STUFF’

Stars are our stellar alchemists. They spend their entire lifespan creating and molding elements. In their final moments, a supernova spreads these elements out into the universe, providing the building blocks for new stars, planets, and even us!

NERDTV: WHAT IF WE HAD TWO SUNS?

We often take that big, bright ball of light in our sky for granted. But we all know how vital the sun is for life on Earth. So, what would happen if we had two of them?

NERDTV: WHAT IF THE SUN DISAPPEARED RIGHT NOW?

SUMMARY The Sun is the closest star to Earth. Only thanks to the Sun life, as we know it today, exists. Plants convert solar energy into chemical energy, they give us oxygen to breathe, and so you can go the beach and have a sunbath. Just imagine our planet, all frozen, traveling through the Universe for billions of years, still conserving what is left of life before the Sun «left» us. Maybe one day it would come close enough to a different star and get into its gravitational pull and star orbiting around it. In this case, the ice would melt, and the planet would heat so those microbes would have a chance to evolve into other types of life. But in such conditions, the chances that humans would appear as a result of this evolution are slightly bigger than zero.

NERDTV: 10 SCIENTIFICALLY IMPOSSIBLE PLACES THAT ACTUALLY EXIST

The Seven Wonders of the Natural World may have been named too quickly. Wonders like The Grand Canyon and Victoria Falls are certainly big, and anyone who sees them will surely be impressed—but sheer size isn’t enough to truly leave a person in awe. There are other places in this world, though, that are far stranger. Places that seem almost alien, as if they could only exist on a planet that evolved separately from our own. These are places that scientists have had to struggle just to understand how they ever could have been formed. Places that will truly make you wonder—not just because they’re beautiful, but because they seem to follow scientific laws that don’t exist anywhere else on earth. Here are 10 Scientifically Impossible Places That Actually Exist
