Here’s What Happens When Space Debris Hits The Moon
The world has watched the Russian invasion of Ukraine unfold during a pandemic that still holds the world firmly in its grip after more than two years.
Fortunately, the natural wonders never stop. Let’s keep exploring the inspiring world of discovery and always have hope.
I’ll see you on the other side of the moon.
A rocket part was on a collision course with its surface Friday morning, moving at around 5,500 miles per hour (8,851 kilometers per hour). We may not have confirmation for some time. But what could have been a moon lemon turned into a unique research opportunity.
NASA’s lunar reconnaissance orbiter – which did not witness the event – will keep an eye out for a crater that may have formed from the possible collision. The moon has many craters – this may well be the first created by errant rocket remnants.
But the two dinos share the spotlight this week.
For many, pets have been the gentle, reliable pals that have helped us through the past two years of the pandemic.
They have lifted our moods, reduced our stress, and served as perfect binge-watching companions.
Pet owners say their fuzzy best friends have reduced loneliness and provided much-needed emotional support. Given that we are still living in uncertain times, the most insightful research is yet to come.
We asked for your best hiccup remedies, and boy, did you deliver.
Then we took these creative techniques to experts and tested them to see if the science backed them up.
The result? Even some of the wackiest solutions — like thinking about cows, taking a spoonful of sugar, or acting out your own Michelangelo-style “Creation of Adam” moment — actually work for a variety of reasons.
The climate has changed
Extreme weather conditions and rising seal levels are altering once-familiar landscapes and could even erase enduring historic sites, including about 190 lining Africa’s coasts.
The Pillars of Carthage, the ruins of the Roman amphitheater at Sabratha and a 125,000-year-old coral reef are just some of the significant treasures at risk of flooding and erosion over the next 30 years.
Let’s end on these good notes:
