A giant asteroid could crash into the Earth in the next century and wipe out the human race. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is taking the threat very seriously that it will soon launch a probe to prevent the future catastrophe from taking place.
The End of The World?
Express reports that the giant asteroid called "Bennu" travels 63,000 miles per hour, weighs over 60 million tons and has the diameter of around 500 meters. "Bennu" is larger than the Empire State building and has been compared to the destructive asteroid in the Hollywood movie "Armageddon." more >>
Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham has responded to criticism from Bill Nye "the Science Guy" over the recently opened Ark Encounter in Kentucky, by claiming that Nye is seeking to "brainwash" children and convince them that they're "just animals."
Nye had argued in an interview with NBC News that not only was the life-sized Noah's Ark theme park "disturbing," but on the Ark's third deck, every single one of the science exhibits was supposedly "absolutely wrong."
"Not just misleading, but wrong," Nye said. more >>
Just recently, new studies about exoplanets have been made, some of them concerning three planets two of which have been proven to be more habitable than the rest.
The two exoplanets, namely TRAPPIST-1b and TRAPPIST-1c, were found circling TRAPPIST-1, an ultracool dwarf star found approximately 40 light-years away in the constellation Aquarius.
While scientists cannot vouch that they have enough information to confirm whether the planets are habitable or not, they have gathered enough data to share with the public and make the knowledge known. more >>
Bill Nye "The Science Guy" has reflected on his recent visit to Kentucky's Ark Encounter, the life-sized Noah's ark theme park built by Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham, by calling it "disturbing," arguing that on the Ark's third deck, every single one of the science exhibits is "absolutely wrong."
Nye, who has debated Ham on the topics of evolution and creationism in the past, visited the Ark Encounter on July 8, and was given a tour of the biblical attraction by the Answers in Genesis and Creation Museum president.
Nye told NBC News in a report on Saturday that he was very alarmed by what he saw. He said the Ark Encounter was an "eye-catching attraction" but then described the experience as "much more troubling or disturbing than I thought it would be." more >>
Over the past few years the United States of America has become embroiled in controversy over the issue of racially-charged police brutality.
A series of well publicized shootings of unarmed African-Americans by law enforcement, done with apparent legal impunity, have prompted protests across the nation.
Entities like the Black Lives Matter movement have argued that race-based police brutality is a pervasive problem throughout American law enforcement. more >>
