What If The Earth Stopped Spinning

We may not feel it, but the Earth is constantly spinning at over 300 meters per second. But what would happen if the Earth suddenly stopped spinning? Michael of Vsauce explains that the moment the Earth, stopped everything that is not Earth would fly east at over 1,000 miles per hour! And that’s just the start. It all goes downhill from there.

How Big Is The Moon Really

The moon seems small when looked up at in the night sky. But it’s really not small at all! So how big is our moon really? As educational group Kurzgesagt explains, our moon is actually the biggest in the solar system in relation to its planet and is much larger than Pluto. It may surprise you to learn that China, the US, Brazil, and Europe could all fit on the moon with a little room to spare. 

  

Thanks Philipp!

Six Decades Of A Warming Earth Animation

A debate has erupted over this new video by NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

The quick clip visualizes the warming of the Earth over the past 60 years. Supporters of Global Warming and Climate Change tout the video as solid proof of a dangerous trend. 

Skeptics argue that six decades is too small of a time frame to fully understand climate patterns. 

Still, NASA’s findings are glaring: 

“With the exception of 1998, the 10 warmest years in the 133-year record all have occurred since 2000, with 2010 and 2005 ranking as the hottest years on record.”

Juno Spacecraft Passes By Earth And Moon

The space age may be in its infancy, but it’s still here. 

NASA‘s Juno spacecraft is traveling to Jupiter, and is set to reach the gassy planet by July of 2016. The craft is outfitted with a slew of special equipment to track, test, and observe space. 

One sensor is a special camera “optimized to track faint stars” which recently had a very unique view of the Earth and our moon.

From 600,000 miles away, Juno captured one frame at a time and sent the footage back to Earth to be processed into this very special video. 

Already, the clip has amassed over half a million views!
