When astronaut Jim Lovell saw Earth outside his window during Apollo 8, the moment forever changed him. “People often say, ‘I hope to go to heaven when I die,’” Lovell previously told Business Insider. “In reality, if you think about it, you go to heaven when you’re born.” Lovell was referring to the humbling truth about our fragile […]

In 1859, the earth was hit by an invisible wave.

The earth is surrounded by a multi-part ring of high-energy particles and rays, the so-called Van Allen Belt. It arises because the Earth’s magnetic field captures particles of the solar wind and directs them into orbits around the Earth. Portions of this shell act like a plasma shield that prevents high-  energy particles from penetrating into deeper layers. Some time ago researchers discovered enigmatic patterns in […]

NASA’S Hubble Space Telescope took this incredible picture of a galaxy that looks like a “gaping portal to another dimension”. ESA said: “In this image taken by Hubble Space Telescope, the galaxy NGC 4380 looks like a special effect straight out of a science fiction or fantasy film, swirling like a gaping portal to another […]
