Good evening everyone,
While we await ISS's return in early August over the Virgin Islands - which I'll post as the dates near - I thought you might be interested in a few possibly challenging questions about phenomena in our universe: Ready?
1. Defined as "Master of the Universe" what phenomenon not only can bend light, but is responsible for holding everything in the universe together, including all of the galaxies? (Note: it is not gravity and is not the black hole(s))
2. In what state of matter is Glass?
3.Which planet in our solar system has metallic snow?
4. Fifty trillion of these non-reactive particles emitted by the sun pass through your body every second. What are they?
5.What is the deadliest creature to man that resides in Earth's oceans.
swans: As an aside- are we going to be able to see the new comet here this fall?? Hale-Bopp was so cool, I'm hoping for another...
Hi East Ender,
Predictions seem to think this comet will be spectacular to view because it is to fly about 1.2 million miles from the sun, which will cause an amazing vaporization of its tail. We can watch it from October through January. We also have our yearly meteorite showers coming up too!
Who could ask for more, huh?
1. I don't know but it better not be Jupiter. I hate Jupiter!
Welcome back, Swanny 🙂
Hi there Aussie.
Are you STILL whining and complaining about Jupiter? By the way, it has now been determined that "she" doesn't have 63 moons; "She" has 67 moons! I simply KNEW how thrilled you would be in hearing that great news about your Jupiter and her wee solar system!:D
OK everyone, another round?
1. Which of Saturn's moons is responsible for replenishing the outermost ring of the planet?
2. Gravity is a force: True or False.
3. A Neutron Star's gravity is a mindstaggering 100 thousand million times greater than that of Earth's gravity - Why?
4. The "Big Bang" - NOTHING existed in the universe before the Big Bang... not even a trillionth of a second beforehand...NOTHING!: If this is true, then WHAT went BANG?
No doubt you will solve these in a heartbeat...enjoy!
