Ode to the Yellow River (Yellow River Concerto 2nd Movement) - Orchestral The Yellow River (or Huang He) is the second-longest river in Asia after the Yangtze and the sixth-longest in the world at the estimated length of 5,464 km (3,395 mi).Originating in the Bayan Har Mountains in Qinghai province of western China, it flows through nine provinces and empties into the Bohai Sea near the city of Dongying in Shandong province. The Yellow River basin has an east--west extent of 1,900 kilometres (1,180 mi) and a north--south extent of 1,100 km (680 mi). Its total basin area is 742,443 square kilometres (286,659 sq mi). The Yellow River is notable for the large amount of silt it carries—1.6 billion tons annually at the point where it descends from the Loess Plateau. If it is running to the sea with sufficient volume, 1.4 billion tons are carried to the sea annually. One estimate gives 34 kilograms of silt per cubic meter as opposed to 10 for the Colorado and 1 for the Nile.

What If Everybody Lived In the Same Building? (Part 2)

Try out your 30-day free trial and free audiobook with Audible by clicking here: http://www.audible.com/reallifelore This video is a sequel to one of my previous videos. I try my best to explore what a building that could "comfortably" house the entire human race would look like within this. I didn't have enough time to cover some of the math in the video because I was worried it would get too boring, so for anybody who's interested I've written it all out below... 80% of the US freshwater source is currently consumed by agriculture. Aeroponics reduces the amount of water needed by 98%, and eliminates the need to use chemical fertilizers and pesticides. It seems that the most efficient crops that can be produced are sweet potatoes and regular potatoes. Sweet potatoes grow about 13.5 tons per hectare, or 1,350 tons per square kilometer. This can be translated to 54,000 calories per hectare per day which is equal to 5.4 million calories per day per square kilometer. If everybody is given a diet of 1,500 calories per day, then 1 square kilometer of sweet potatoes is enough to feed 3,600 people per day. Sweet potatoes are generally between 12 and 15 inches in height, so giving them a little more space of about 1 meter and stacking 1,000 layers on top of eachother and we could fit 1,000 square kilometers into 1 cubic kilometer. Using hydorponics, (a method of growing plants without using soil, but instead using nutrient rich water solution, where the plant roots are directly exposed to the solution) and we can increase our raw yields by around 280%. Thus, we could then expect to feed up to 10,080 people per day per square kilometer, but then we could further increase the efficiency with aeroponics (another method of growing plants in which nutrient rich water is vaporized and sprayed directly onto the roots of crops.) Using this method we could further increase efficiency by between 50% to 270% over traditional hydorponic methods. If the far side of this could be realized, we could potentially be feeding 27,216 people per square kilometer per day of space. Now, extended to the cubic kilometer that means that we could actually be feeding 27,216,000 people per day per cubic kilometer building full of sweet potatoes, since we would multiply 27,216 by 1,000 since there would be 1,000 layers. Therefore if we build 275 of these cubic buildings to feed the entire human race a diet of sweet potatoes, or have a farmland about the size of Ecuador for the same purpose, we could in theory feed the entire species. 33.8% of Brazil’s land is considered arable and suitable for farming, which would translate to 2,878,329 square kilometers of potential farming space, more than enough to feed us all several times over “in theory.” Obviously a diet of only sweet potatoes is not entirely healthy, but in an emergency situation or hypothetical situation like this it appears to be the most efficient food for us to consume. If I’m wrong about any of this please feel free to correct to me or leave your own ideas :) Sources: http://www.fao.org/docrep/t0207e/T0207E04.htm http://www.businessinsider.com/10-crops-that-feed-the-world-2011-9?op=1/#cassava-6 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroponics http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/AG.LND.AGRI.ZS http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0304423807003846 https://www.researchgate.net/publication/234520423_Comparison_of_vegetative_growth_and_minituber_yield_in_three_potato_variety_in_aeroponics_and_classic_hydroponics_with_three_different_nutrient_solutions http://www.un.org/esa/population/pubsarchive/chart/14.pdf http://www.businessinsider.com/nasa-data-shows-the-world-is-running-out-of-water-2015-6 https://www1.nyc.gov/site/planning/zoning/districts-tools.page http://www.techtimes.com/articles/92543/20151008/ever-wondered-how-many-solar-panels-are-needed-to-power-up-the-world-heres-the-answer.htm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_countries_by_electricity_consumption https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Itaipu_Dam https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_resources_management_in_Brazil http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2012/06/food_security_what_crops_will_feed_the_world_if_we_run_out_of_farmland_.html Music is by Brandon Maahs, check out his website for more great stuff! www.brandonmaahs.com Image Credits: http://stefan-morrell.cgsociety.org/ Please Subscribe: http://bit.ly/2dB7VTO Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/RealLifeLore/ Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/RealLifeLore1 Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/RealLifeLore French Subtitles Written by: Emel Önal Subreddit moderated by: Oliver Bourdouxhe Special Thanks to Patrons: Joshua Tavares, Wesley Jackson and Matthew Mikulka Videos explaining things.

Eritrea's Multi-Billion Gold/ Potash Reserve Eritrea's Multi-Billion Gold/ Potash Reserve Eritrea South Boulder Mines to produce 1 million tonnes of potash worth US $1.33 billion per annum South Boulder Mines (ASX:STB) has received strong metallurgical in-fill drilling results at its Colluli Potash Project in Eritrea, that potentially could boost the economics of the Project. The results demonstrated that project economics could be enhanced particularly in the early phases of its operation. An earlier engineering Scoping Study for the production of 1 million tonnes per annum of potash generated a Pre-tax NPV of US$1.33 billion. It also proved that an economic 1 million tonnes per annum potash mine can be built at half the cost of a typical potash development. The Colluli Project will be one of a few "Greenfields" potash mines to come into production in the next 10 years. The location of the project provides much sought after infrastructure as it is approximately 70 kilometres from the Red Sea Coast and major shipping routes to Asia. South Boulder is working towards developing the world's first, modern, open pit potash mine, with initial production scheduled for 2016 or sooner.

HOW BIG IS $2.5 BILLION? - Minecraft Science

This video is for entertainment purposes only. Thanks :D According to Microsoft the game Minecraft and it’s developers Mojang are worth a whopping $2.5 Billion. To put it into perspective, Amazon purchased Twitch for $970M, Disney purchased Star Wars for $4.05B, and Facebook bought WhatsApp for $19B. So how big exactly is 2.5 billion? If someone said they’d give you as much money as you could count, meaning if you counted to 10 you’d get $10, how long do you think you could count? It would take 11 days, 13 hours, and 47 min to count to a million. It takes 79 years to count to 2.5 billion. And that’s the case in which each number took a second to say but in reality, the larger the number gets, the longer it takes to say. Taking this into account, it would take about 482 years, 107 days, 19 hours and 41 min! Minecraft for the Xbox 360 is limited to a 7.4 million square meter world that’s 862 by 862 blocks. Minecraft for the Xbox One is 36x larger with 26,749,584 square meter and a world that’s 5,172 by 5,172. But a world with 2.5 billion square meter would be 3,400x larger with a world that’s 50,000 by 50,000 blocks. Though as large as 2.5 billion is, on PC the game can get as large as 90 trillion blocks before things get super weird. In other words, it’s only about 0.0028% the maximum size of a Minecraft for PC which is FUCKING huge! So back to the cash. $2.5B in US pennies would fill 43 Olympic sized swimming pools. If you were to stack them on top of each other it would tower about 380,000 km high weighing in at 625 million kilos. If you were paid in one dollar bills you could cover 26 square kilometers. The creator of Minecraft, Notch, was born on June 1st 1979. From his birth until September 15th 2014 his average pay was $2.24 per second. If Notch was walking down the side of the road and saw a $20 bill, in the time it took him to bend down and pick it up, he would have made an additional $24 bucks. Meaning if every waking moment was spent on the the production of Minecraft, bending down for that 20 would have costed him money. To put in into perspective, if he gave away a million dollars per day, he could continue that for 6.8 years straight! In the Minecraft world there are a ton of super rare and super not rare materials. With each block being 1 meter by 1 meter you could buy 24 million solid blocks of coal, 227 thousand blocks of iron, 52 thousand blocks of TNT, 11 thousand blocks of obsidian, 3 blocks of gold, 22% of a block of emeralds or only 1.4% blocks of diamond. Although you can literally never count to 2 and a half billion, just remember that that the time it takes you to pick up a $20 bill you could be working on your billion dollar idea. With that said, congratulation to Notch and everyone over at Mojang! Let’s just hope Microsoft doesn’t F*** this one up! Have what it takes to get paid for your videos? Email me at [email protected] and I'll take a look. If I like what I see, I'll point you in the right direction!

Solar Storms: 10 Hottest Facts
 
05:59
Our Sun is located 24-26,000 light years from the center of the Milky Way. It circles the galaxy every 225-250,000 years, at a speed of 220 kilometers per second. The sun is a medium size star, a Yellow Dwarf, G type main sequence. It’s about one million times the size of planet Earth. Core temperature:15,000,000 °C. Surface temperature: 5,500 °C. The sun emits a steady stream of charged particles, the solar wind, at 450 km per second. It increases in strength during active periods, every 11 years or so. Active periods are marked by an increase in sunspots. Sunspots are Earth-sized regions where intense magnetic fields prevent hot gas from reaching the surface, driving temperatures down to around 4,000°C. They often correspond to active regions. Where magnetic activity drives the formation of coronal loops, or prominences. Solar flares. And Solar tsunamis, technically “fast-mode magnetohydrodynamical waves.” In February 2009, the Stereo spacecraft detected one that rose to 100,000 km high, and raced outward at 250 kilometers per second. It was associated with an eruption of gas and magnetic fields called a coronal mass ejection. A CME can blast a billion tons of matter out at 10 to 12 million kilometers per hour. A CME sends a pulse of solar plasma to the limits of the solar system, where it can impact planets or spacecraft. We see its arrival in spectacular aurora. They form when solar particles rain down on Earth’s atmosphere, causing oxygen and nitrogen atoms to glow.

fair transport europe
 
07:29
Rail freight in Europe is huge. Nine freight corridors connect the north, south, east and west. A network of more than 320,000 kilometres of track runs across the continent. This corresponds to about 8 times the Earth's circumference. Freight trains carry in excess of 1.5 billion tons per year in Europe and cover over 4 billion train-kilometres. That makes a total of 400 billion ton-kilometres. These masses do not move by themselves. People work day and night so that the goods reach their destinations safely and punctually on a daily basis. But what about their work and employment conditions? Is competition for transport contracts fairly regulated?

Levon's flagship Cordero project "pushing a billion tons" of silver
 
05:43
June 19, 2014 -- Tracy Weslosky, Editor-in-Chief and Publisher of InvestorIntel speaks to Ron Tremblay, the CEO, President and Director for Levon Resources (TSX: LVN | OTCQX: LVNVF) about the poly-metallic flagship silver, gold, lead and zinc Cordero project, which is located 220 km south of Chihuahua, Mexico. Levon has been developing the Levon property for about five years: "we've taken it from zero resource to the point where it is pushing 700 million tons of indicated and inferred resources (silver) right now and we expect that, with the new drilling, we'll take that substantially higher, perhaps pushing a billion tons." Levon happens to be located in one of Mexico's most prolific mining areas, in Hidalgo del Parral in the state of Chihuahua. The property is just ten kilometers from the main highway with access to good infrastructure including water. Tracy is intrigued by the presence of zinc and especially the fact that the indicated zinc resource is 6.1 billion pounds, "and that was before the latest drilling", says Ron, who adds that "our engineers have told us that we could increase our resource by as much as 30%. Zinc of course is needed to make the new efficient and corrosion resistant steel, new types of batteries and fuel cells. China is the largest zinc producer but if it wants to continue its industrial development, it will be forced to consume more than 50 % of major mineral commodities in the world in the next decade. Levon is certainly in a position to benefit from just such demand. However, there are bullish prospects for silver as well. Indeed, Ron is especially keen about the market prospects for silver and all the precious metals, which he feels are "about to turn a corner". As large as the resource estimate for the Cordero project may be, it is actually conservative because it was calculated using the NSR system. Originally the engineers had predicted a 70% rate recovery but now, based on actual evidence from the ground, Ron believes the recovery rate will be higher than that based on the new metallurgy: "on top of that, they took off all the costs when they calculated the net value....so they took off the mining costs and the net smelter return, all the taxes and everything involved in the mining costs so the numbers they use are the same as you would receive at the end of the day after mining it in a very conservative fashion." Ron, therefore, believes that it will be possible to improve on the original estimates quite dramatically. Cordero, meanwhile, contains about 384 million ounces indicated, plus ninety-one million inferred ounces of silver. Over the next 12 months, Ron anticipates that Levon will be able to identify and confirm close to a billion ton resource estimate."

Germany Train line Manufacture - Discover Heavyweight Productions | Technology connections
 
11:34
Germany Train line Manufacture - Discover Heavyweight Productions | Technology connections Germany's richest state agreed on Sept. 25 to build the country's first commercial high-speed magnetic levitation train line, but officials warned the price tag could be heftier than first thought. Authorities said they had finalized 1.85 billion euros (US$2.6 billion) in financing for the next-generation train line, which is to connect the state capital Munich with its airport, 37 kilometers (23 miles) away. Starting in 2014, travelers will see the 40-minute trip cut to just 10 by the driverless Transrapid, or Maglev train, which is able to run at 450 kilometers (280 miles) per hour. The German government will pay 925 million euros, while Bavaria will contribute 490 million, the German state rail company will provide 235 million, the Munich airport will add 100 million and, Siemens and ThyssenKrupp will each provide 50 million with the EU contributing 50 million. But German Finance Minister Peer Steinbrueck warned that the advertised price was based on an outdated, five-year-old calculation. "The project will be much more expensive. There is no way that the cost will stay at 1.85 billion euros," he said. The Maglev, designed and built by engineering groups Siemens and ThyssenKrupp, is meant to represent German prowess in rail technology. But a test train collided in September 2006 at 170 kilometers an hour with a parked maintenance vehicle, killing 23 people. Plans to build a working version of the Transrapid have been on hold since the crash. The only operating line is in China where the Maglev whisks travelers between Shanghai's financial district and the city's Pudong airport along a 30-kilometer track. technology information global technology cnc technology in education gadgets
10 BIGGEST Holes on Earth
 
10:14
From GIANT mines; to a strange, forgotten hidden paradise; these are 10 BIGGEST Holes on Earth ! HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 10.Umpherston Sinkhole 9..Kimberly Hole Located in South Africa; the Kimberly Hole is believed to be the largest hole excavated by hand. No dozers; no giant machinery; just sheer manpower. What was the incentive to dig a hole this big ? To NO ONE’s surprise; it was the discovery of diamonds. Between 1871 and 1914 miners extracted over 5,900 lbs (2,700 kg) of diamonds. Or wait; should we say it in carats? Well it's 13,500,000 Carats. This hole is pretty big, boasting a nice 1500 ft (463m) wide size. It was dug to a depth of 240 meters (790 feet) but then refilled with debris reducing its depth to about 215 meters (705 feet). 8.Kola Superdeep borehole 7.Mirny Diamond Mine This is a former open pit diamond mine located in the Siberian region of eastern Russia. It is 1700ft 525 meters deep and has a diameter of 3,900 ft 1200 meters making it the 4th largest excavated hole in the world. Diamonds were first discovered on June 13, 1955 by soviet geologists during the large Amakinsky expedition in Yakut. They found traces of Kimberlite volcanic rock that is usually associated with diamonds. The development of the mine happened in extremely harsh climate conditions. During winter months, the temperatures were so low that the ground would freeze making it hard to mine. How bad did it get? There were reports that steel and car tires would just SHATTER and the oil needed top operate machinery would freeze overnight. Somehow, even in those conditions, there were people willing to excavate diamonds, and the company actually made a profit. 6.Crveno jezero 5.Bingham Canyon mine This hole is commonly known as Kennecott Copper Mine among the locals and was designated a national historic landmark in 1966. It is an open pit mining located at Salt Lake County in Utah. It is the largest man-made open pit excavation project in the world and it is estimated to have produced more copper than any other mine in history,or about 19 million tons. If it were a stadium, it could seat 9 million people. Even though it is a copper mine, it has yielded a wide range of byproducts like gold, silver, molybdenum and large amounts of platinum and palladium. It has been nicknamed the rich hole on earth because it extracts approximately 450,000 tons of rock daily. And earns US$ 1.8 billion dollars per year. 4.Great Blue Hole Belize 3.Diavik Mine This diamond mine was constructed in 2001 and commenced production in January 2003. It is located in the Northwest Territories in Canada about 300 kilometers from Yellowknife. It is an important part of the regional economy employing 1000 workers and producing 1,400 kilograms of diamonds annually. The mine has three Kimberlite pipes currently being exploited. Unfortunately, the mine is expected to run out of diamonds in 2024, even after developing a fourth pipe expected to begin production in 2018. The mine sits above a mantle- a downward protruding thickened portion of the lithosphere- where relatively low heat-flow and reducing conditions have remained suitable for diamond formation and preservation for an extended period of geologic time. Another mysterious feature of this mine is the high proportion of coated crystals; the gem-quality diamonds that have been overgrown with younger cloudy rims. Recently, a study showed that the rims represent a much more recent growth phase of diamond in the deep mantle keel. At the site, summers are short and cool while winters are long and extremely cold and this area is considered an arctic semi desert. Daylight ranges from about four hours a day in the winter to as many as 20 hours per day during summer. In other words; perfect conditions. 2.Hoyo De Cimarron 1.Heavenly Pit, Xiaozhai Tiankeng The sinkhole was discovered in 1994, it is located in Fengjie County of Chongqing Municipality, Southwest China. It has a diameter of 2000ft(626m) long, and with a depth of 2100ft(662m), this sinkhole is the largest one in the world ! Due to collapses of the walls surrounding this beauty; the rainy season is a sight to behold. Many waterfalls form around it. Heavenly pit formed some 10,000 years ago when a powerful underground river, which still flows underneath the sinkhole, formed the Triassic limestone Difeng cave that collapsed and in turn formed the sinkhole. The bottom of the sinkhole is the only location where the underground river shows. 1285 species of plants can be studied here; also animals like the clouded leopard have been found in the sinkhole. So make sure you bring your clouded leopard pepper spray. 0. The “Ooops” Sinkhole | Florida

3 What global advantages will SkyWay bring to the world
 
04:47
The advantages are big. They relate to different areas and industries. You understand, now, for example, in Russia they wanted to build a high-speed railway Moscow-Kazan, worth a trillion rubles. Subsidies are annual - 300 billion rubles! The ticket will cost at least 5,000 rubles. Tell me, who needs such a road? It is necessary for officials to steal money! Our money is budget. Transport system, it must be different: cheap, safe, ecological, economical, and travel must be cheap and safe for all us users. And we are ordinary users. In order for this to be realized, we need to build millions of kilometers of roads. Today, 35 million kilometers of roads have been built in the world, and a million railways. There are also pipelines and gas pipelines (about a million kilometers). This transport infrastructure must be different in the twenty-first century, completely different. The existing transport infrastructure kills 1.5 million people every year. At least twenty million people a year makes disabled people. That's multiplied by 100 years - it's 150 million dead people and 2 billion disabled and crippled. Imagine, this will make the existing transport infrastructure. Now imagine that we will save these people. 150 million people will not be killed, there will not be 2 billion disabled people, because what we offer is another system, it is at the second level, it is safe: there are no crossings with pedestrians, with animals, there is no intersection with other transport infrastructures. Therefore there are no accidents, there is no exit to the oncoming lane, there is no danger - that a snowdrift on the ground, that ice. There is against a similar system - the vehicle will not fly off the road. This system will be safer than aircraft, than aviation. Today, 700-800 people die in aviation accidents a year. Compare with the death of 1.5 million people on the roads a difference of 2,000 times. We can make a safer system than aviation! It's like social benefits. We will save many lives, and there will not be many disabled people. There are also resource characteristics. Today's transport is very inefficient. It requires a lot of fuel, energy, environmentally dangerous. Now if we build a network of roads, those I'm talking about, these roads will be high-speed. There will be 20-25 million kilometers of roads on the planet, then we will save 30 billion tons of fuel per year. Think about the figure. Today, oil production is five billion tons a year - that's saving! Because our transport is more efficient than the existing system 10 times. If we build transport trestles using existing technologies or ours, then we will save about 100 billion tons of steel! Today, 2 billion tons are melted in a year! We will save a trillion! Think about the number! Trillion cubic meters of reinforced concrete. Existing roads have taken the soil off the land, an area exceeding 4 territories in the UK. This soil is dead, it does not grow plants, but we breathe oxygen. Who produces oxygen? Plants! They were taken and rolled into asphalt. Therefore, we will return the soil, and make the world environmentally friendly and safe. Today, 2 billion tons are melted in a year! We will save a trillion! Think about the number! Trillion cubic meters of reinforced concrete. Existing roads have taken the soil off the land, an area exceeding 4 territories in the UK. This soil is dead, it does not grow plants, but we breathe oxygen. Who produces oxygen? Plants!

10 Amazing Facts About the Universe
 
05:28
Here are the facts: 2. The Hubble telescope allows us to look back billions of years into the past The Hubble Telescope enables us to look towards very distant objects in the universe. Thanks to this remarkable piece of engineering NASA has been able to create some incredible images, one of which is the Hubble Ultra Deep Field. Created using images from the telescope from 2003 and 2004, the incredible picture displays a tiny patch of the sky in immense detail; it contains 10,000 objects, most of them young galaxies, and acts as a portal back in time. In one picture we are transported 13 billion years into the past, just 400 to 800 million years after the Big Bang, which is early in terms of the universe’s history. 4. There’s a giant cloud of alcohol in Sagittarius B Sagittarius B is a vast molecular cloud of gas and dust floating near the centre of the Milky Way, 26,000 light-years from Earth, 463,000,000,000 kilometres in diameter and, amazingly, it contains 10-billion-billion-billion litres of alcohol. The vinyl alcohol in the cloud is far from the most flavoursome tipple in the universe, but it is an important organic molecule which offers some clues how the first building blocks of life-forming substances are produced. 5. There’s a planet-sized diamond in Centaurus named after a Beatles song Astronomers have discovered the largest known diamond in our galaxy, it’s a massive lump of crystallised diamond called BPM 37093, otherwise known as Lucy after The Beatles’ song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Found 50 light-years away in the constellation of Centaurus, Lucy is about 25,000 miles across, so much larger then planet Earth, and weighs in at a massive 10 billion-trillion-trillion carats. 6. It takes 225 million years for our Sun to travel round the galaxy Whilst the Earth and the other planets within our solar system orbit around the Sun, the Sun itself is orbiting around the centre of our galaxy, the Milky Way. It takes the Sun 225 million years to perform a complete circuit of the galaxy. The last time the Sun was in its current position in the galaxy the super-continent Pangaea was just about starting to break apart and early dinosaurs were making an appearance. 7. Our solar system’s biggest mountain is on Mars Olympus Mons on Mars is the tallest mountain on any of the planets of the Solar System. The mountain is a gigantic shield volcano (similar to volcanoes found in the Haiiwain Islands) standing at 26 kilometres tall and sprawling 600 kilometres across. To put this into scale, this makes the mountain almost three times the height of Mount Everest. 8. Uranus spins on its side, with some rather strange results Most of the planets in the Solar System spin on an axis similar to the Sun’s; slight tilts in a planet’s axis causes seasons as different parts become slightly closer or further from the sun during their orbit. Uranus is an exceptional planet in many ways, not least because it spins almost completely on its side in relation to the Sun. This results in very long seasons – each pole gets around 42 Earth years of continuous summer sunlight, followed by a wintry 42-year period of darkness. Uranus’s northern hemisphere enjoyed its last summer solstice in 1944 and will see in the next winter solstice in 2028. 9. A year on Venus is shorter than its day Venus is the slowest rotating planet in our Solar System, so slow it takes longer to fully rotate than it does to complete its orbit. This means Venus has days that last longer than its years. It’s also home to one of the most inhospitable environments imaginable, with constant electronic storms, high CO2 readings, and it’s shrouded by clouds of sulfuric acid. 10. Neutron stars are the fastest spinning objects known in the universe Neutron stars are thought to be the fastest spinning objects in the universe. Pulsars are a particular type of neutron star that emits a beam of radiation which can be observed as a pulse of light as the star spins. The rate of this pulse allows astronomers to measure the rotation. The fastest spinning known pulsar is the catchily-titled PSR J1748-2446ad, which has an equator spinning at 24% the speed of light, which translates to over 70,000 kilometres per second. An artist’s impression of what this must look like is pictured above. 11. A spoonful of a neutron star weighs about a billion ton Neutron stars spin incredibly quickly and are also incredibly dense. It is estimated, if you could collect a tablespoon of matter from the centre of a neutron star, it would weigh about one billion tons. 12. The Voyager 1 spacecraft is the most distant human-made object from Earth The Voyager Program launched two spacecraft, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2, in 1977. The probes explored the planets and moons of the outer Solar System over several decades and are now continuing their mission to travel through the heliosphere at the edge of our Solar System and continue to voyage into interstellar space.

China's Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (#HZMB)
 
00:46
Chinese President Xi Jinping on Tuesday announced the opening of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (#HZMB) in Zhuhai City, Guangdong Province. The 55-km-long bridge will open to traffic at 9 am on Wednesday after nearly nine years of construction. Five Things You Need To Know About Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge 1. What is Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge? The 55-kilometer bridge, declared as one of the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World” and also called the “Mount Everest of Bridges” was one of the world’s most challenging megaprojects. 2. What’s the significance of the bridge? The 100-billion-yuan mega bridge will reduce travel time between Zhuhai City on the Chinese mainland and the two special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macao from three hours to 45 minutes, enhancing the weak transportation links between the two SARs and mainland cities in the western area of the Pearl River Delta. The bridge will greatly enhance regional integration and drive economic growth and technological innovation. 3. What makes the bridge so special? The world’s longest sea-based project comprises of four parts: a 22.9-kilometer steel bridge, two artificial islands, a submerged sea tunnel extending for 6.7 kilometers at a depth of 40 meters, and bridge sections that connect the main bridge to the cities. With a designed lifespan of 120 years, the bridge is a milestone in the history of construction, as it is the biggest and most complex to construct cross-bridge tunnel transportation project ever. 4. Why the underwater tunnel? The Pearl River Estuary is a world-level shipping channel, where around 5,000 vessels navigate at its busiest time of the day. Smooth traffic on both land and water needs to be guaranteed. Also, the bridge is located near the Hong Kong International Airport. With about 2,000 flights taking off and landing at the airport each day, the bridge cannot be too high. For all these reasons, it was decided that an underwater tunnel would be the best option. But this also required added support, so artificial islands had to be built 5. What were the technological challenges of the project? Lauded as an engineering wonder, the bridge has been granted over a thousand patents. The 6.7-kilometer tunnel is the longest, deepest submerged sea tunnel in the world. To do it, Chinese engineers had to blaze a trail in installing deep-immersed tunnel tubes. “There’s no model for us to refer to as all the cases is shallow-buried tubes,” said Su Quanke, chief engineer at the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Authority in a previous interview. Engineers even spun a steel pylon with a height of 160 meters and a weight of over 3,000 tons at 90 degrees above the sea, an unprecedented practice in the history of the world bridge construction.
Indian Railway!! Amazing facts of Indian Railway

U.S. launches 100,000-ton aircraft carrier
 
02:13
美 슈퍼 핵 항모 취역..."10만 톤짜리 메시지" The United States has commissioned one of its most advanced aircraft carriers to join its Navy. In a ceremony over the weekend, President Trump said the USS Gerald R. Ford will cause America's enemies to "shake with fear." Ro Aram has the details. Weighing in at one hundred-thousand tons, the 13 billion-dollar warship, named after America's 38th president, can apparently sail for 20 years without needing to refuel. The carrier also has a smaller island that sits further back on the ship to make it easier and quicker to refuel, re-arm and relaunch planes. It also has a nuclear power plant designed to allow cruising speeds of more than 30 knots... or 55 kilometers an hour. Construction started in 2009 and was to be completed by September 2015 at a cost of ten and a half billion dollars. The Navy said the delays and budget overruns was because of the ship's advanced technology, including electromagnetic launch systems for jets and drones that will replace steam catapults. President Trump had earlier urged against this as he blamed electromagnetic systems for being too expensive. But he seemed pleased with the finished product as he hailed the Gerald Ford as the pride of the U.S. Navy and American power. AP 4107468 / 1 "American steel and American hands have constructed a 100,000-ton message to the world: 'America might is second to none…. "Wherever this vessel cuts through the horizon, our allies will rest easy and our enemies will shake with fear because everyone will know that America is coming, and America is coming strong." The Gerald Ford is docked at Naval Station Norfolk and will eventually house about four-and-a-half thousand sailors, about six hundred fewer than the previous generation of aircraft carriers. However, it still needs to go through a series of tests before becoming operational in the next few years. Ro Aram, Arirang News.

मुंबई की सच्चाई कभी नहीं देखी होगी | Reality of Mumbai| Fact of Mumbai
 
04:23
1. India’s first ever train ran between Mumbai and Thane On 16 April 1853, India’s first train commenced its operation. Mumbai Locals are the busiest railways in the world and carry about 2.2 billion passengers every year. Mumbai also has the most obsolete electric rail chain in India, which was installed in 1925. 2. Mumbai was the first one to start a bus service in India It was on 15 July 1926, that the first ever bus service in India was started. The first route was ridden between Afghan Church and Crawford Market. 3. World’s most expensive house is in Mumbai Antilia, Mukesh Ambani’s 27-story skyscraper is cited as the world’s most expensive house, valued at almost $1 billion. The business tycoon moved into the 400,000 square feet mansion in 2012 with his wife and three children. 4. The Bandra-Worli Sea Link is made up of cement and steel wire equal to the girth of the earth Officially known as Rajiv Gandhi Sea Link, it has a length of around 5.6 kms. It was made with 90,000 tonnes of cement and steel wire equal to the earth’s girth. 5. We all know that it was called Bombay earlier, but you know why? When the city was in the hands of the Portuguese, they saw it was a natural water bay. Hence, they called it ‘Bom Bhaia’, which is the Portuguese term for ‘good bay’. Later, Bombay was given to the British as dowry when a Portuguese princess married an English prince. They renamed the city Bombay. And that’s how the city got its name! 6. Mumbai was once an archipelago of 7 islands Although now connected, the islands that formed ‘Bombay’ are Isle of Bombay, Colaba, Old Woman's Island (Little Colaba), Mahim, Mazagaon, Parel and Worli. It took over 5 centuries to unite them together to form an emotion called ‘Bombay’. These were famous fishing centres and some of these communities are still active. 7. Mumbai was renamed after a local temple deity Mumbadevi, the patron goddess of the fishing community inspired the name ‘Mumbai’. ‘Mumba’ is the name of the goddess and ‘ai’ is mother. The Mumbadevi temple is situated in Bhuleshwar. 8. Mumbai has a coastline of about 150 kilometres Not many people know about its vast coastline. Right from Marine Drive to Aksa Beach, Mumbai has huge coastline. Marine Drive is beautifully embellished with the ‘queen’s necklace’. 9. Mumbai is one of the most helpful cities of India According to a lot of travellers, Mumbai has shown helpful attitude many times over. It has endured a lot of pain through terror attacks and natural calamities, but even in those hard times, it has not failed to lend a helping hand. 10. The Mumbai-Pune railway line was built by a woman It was in 1863 that the Mumbai-Pune railway line was built by Alice Tredwell, wife of Solomon Tredwell. 11. Mumbai is the birthplace of the author of The Jungle Book Rudyard Kipling, the Nobel Laureate who wrote The Jungle Book was born on 30 December 1865 in Mumbai. Kipling's birth home still stands on the campus of the J J School of Art in Bombay which was used as the Dean's residence for many years. 12. India’s 1st car owner lived in Mumbai The first person to own a car in India was the great Sir Jamshetji Tata, the founder of the Tata empire. It was in 1901 that any India brought a car. 13. There is only 1.1 square metres of open space for people living in Mumbai This is not news! Mumbai is so densely populated that finding an empty space is next to impossible. Mumbai is one of the busiest, cramped and highly populated cities of the world. It is highly vulnerable to traffic. 14. Flamingos migrate here every year A large amount of migrating population of flamingos is found in the swamps of Sewri and Bhandup. Between the months of October to March, a lot of birding enthusiasts and photographers march to these marshlands with their props. 15. Mumbai's Juhu Aerodrome was the first airport in India founded in 1928 and Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport is the 3rd best international airport in the world. No doubt Mumbai is a fast growing city. Its also a leading city when it comes to the aviation industry. Check out the top weekend getaways here at Musafir.com. The best way experience Mumbai's high-spirited attitude bundled with an overriding fervour is by buying yourself an air ticket and exploring her charm for yourself. We even have some exciting flight offers. #Mumbai #RealityofMumbai

Train with funny speed
 
01:56
Train with funny speed. Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is a state-owned railway company, responsible for rail transport in India. It is owned and operated by the Government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It is fourth largest railway network in the world comprising 119,630 kilometres (74,330 mi) of total track[4] and 92,081 km (57,216 mi) of running track over a route of 66,687 km (41,437 mi) with 7,216 stations at the end of 2015-16.[2] In 2015-16, IR carried 8.107 billion passengers annually or more than 22 million passengers a day and 1.101 billion tons of freight annually.[2] Railways were first introduced to India in 1830s for frieght purposes. First passenger train ran from Bombay to Thane in 1853. In 1951 the systems were nationalised as one unit, the Indian Railways, becoming one of the largest networks in the world. IR operates both long distance and suburban rail systems predominantly on a network of broad gauge. Small stretches of its network use metre and narrow gauges. It also owns locomotive and coach production facilities at several places in India, with assigned codes identifying their gauge, kind of power and type of operation. Indian Railways is the world's eighth biggest employer and had 1.331 million employees at the end of 2015-16.[3] In 2015–2016 Indian Railways had revenues of ₹1.683 trillion (US$26 billion) which consists of ₹1.069 trillion (US$17 billion) freight earnings and ₹442.83 billion (US$6.9 billion) passengers earnings.[2] It had operating ratio of 90.5% in 2015-16.[2] As on the end of 2015-16, IR's rolling stock comprises over 251,256 Freight Wagons, 70,241 Passenger Coaches and 11,122 Locomotives (39 steam, 5,869 diesel and 5214 electric locomotives).[2] Indian Railways run on average 13,313 passenger trains daily in 2015-16. Mail or Express trains, most common type, run at average speed of 50.9 km/hr.[5] The trains have a 5 digit numbering system. As of at the end of 2015-16, of the total 68,525 km (42,579 mi) route length, 28,327 km (17,602 mi) (45%) was electrified and 28,371 km (17,629 mi) (37%) was Double or Multiple line route.[6]

What If A Large Asteroid Was Headed To Earth?
 
11:15
What If A Large Asteroid Was Headed To Earth? ► Subscribe: https://goo.gl/r5jd1F There have been many movies and stories about the end of the world, and while some of these stories about how the Earth will meet some apocalyptic fate are pure fantasy, nothing can be more real or terrifying as the threat of a killer asteroid; one that is big enough, and moving fast enough that its impact on the Earth would be the end of everything as we know it. Everyone has heard about the Asteroid that wiped out the Dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Imagine sunrise on the last day of the Mesozoic era, 66 million years ago. Shafts of sunlight rake through the swamps and forests along the coast of what is now Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. As the dinosaurs and other living creatures’ squawk, buzz, and stir to life, an asteroid the size of a mountain is hurtling toward Earth at about 40,000 miles, or 64,000 kilometers an hour. For a few fleeting moments, a fireball appears streaking through the sky, it is far bigger and brighter than the sun. An instant later, the asteroid slams into Earth with an explosive yield of over 100 trillion tons of Trinitrotoluene. Upon crashing into the planet, the impact penetrates Earth’s crust to a depth of several miles and gouging a crater more than 115 miles or 185 kilometers across while vaporizing thousands of cubic miles of rock. It creates a huge dust plume that completely covers the globe, blocking out all sunlight. Temperatures in the vicinity are so high that it literally cooks anything living alive within seconds. The event then sets off a chain of global catastrophes. Now just imagine for a moment an object much bigger, could be a million to a trillion times more powerful. But it would need to be a much bigger rock. An asteroid is big enough that it is sometimes called a minor planet or planetoid. There are millions of asteroids orbiting the sun and some of these asteroids can be hundreds of kilometers wide: The asteroid Ceres, sometimes referred to as a dwarf planet, is 940 kilometers or 584 miles wide. However, scientists estimate that an asteroid would have to be just 96 kilometers or about 60 miles wide to completely eradicate all life on our planet. We have found 90% of the 1 kilometer or larger asteroids. But it is estimated that there are tens to hundreds of thousands more out there that we cannot see, many hidden by the sun. One day we might wake up to the news that a ‘global killer’ asteroid is headed our way. It is not a matter of if it will happen, but only a matter of when. In real life, asteroids and comets that could hit Earth are called NEO’s or "near-Earth objects", and these objects do pose a threat to life on the planet. Some of you may have seen the movie Armageddon that is about an asteroid the size of Texas that is headed towards the Earth. The idea to save mankind is to drill a deep hole and drop a nuclear weapon into the drilled hole, therefore fracturing and splitting the giant rock in two. But in order to blow up an asteroid the size of the one in the film, the bomb would have to explode with the same amount of energy as produced by the sun. This idea just wouldn’t be possible and even if you could create such a powerful weapon, it would be more dangerous than the asteroid itself. To many people, "gravitational tractor" may sound like some made-up technology, but the premise is fairly simple. Every object in the universe exerts a gravitational pull, including asteroids and man-made spacecraft. Gravity may be one of the weakest forces in the universe, but is also the most "ready-to-use" since all you need is a little mass. Therefore, it makes sense to unleash it against asteroids. Theoretically, all we'd have to do is navigate a hefty robot close to the asteroid and tow it away with the gentle pull gravity. And while all these ideas sound like they might work, it may turn out that there might be nothing we can do about an asteroid impact. The next time the asteroid will pass close to Earth will be on October 26th, 2028. It is predicted it will be about two and a half times the Moon’s distance from Earth at its closest point. It is estimated to be about a mile wide and is traveling at a speed of 48,000 kilometers or 30,000 miles per hour. But you can rest easy, NASA says that it will not affect the planet in any way.

Plastic waste: More than 8 billion tonnes of plastic was produced, only 9% recycled - TomoNews
 
08:30
SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA — A new study has revealed the amount of all the plastic that has ever been made in the entire world for the first time, and that number is shocking. The study was led by industrial ecologist Roland Geyer from the University of California, Santa Barbara and was published in the journal Science Advances. It is said to be the first comprehensive report of the total amount plastic produced and how and where it ends up. It is estimated that 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic was produced between 1950 to 2015. Only 30% of the plastic is still in use and the rest has become waste. Seventy-nine percent of the waste is in landfills, 12% was incinerated and only about 9% has been recycled. "We are rapidly heading towards 'Planet Plastic', and if we don't want to live on that kind of world then we may have to rethink how we use some materials, in particular plastic," Dr. Geyer told the BBC. The only way to permanently dispose of plastic waste is to destroy it with heat, yet this method would also generate emissions that could cause health problems. According to Planet Aid, Germany, South Korea, Slovenia and Austria are leading other countries in recycling efforts. The United States only recycles about 35% of its waste. The study estimates the global recycling rate would reach 44% in 2050, a number still far from enough to offset the waste we have produced. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Cosmic Journeys - Earth in 1000 Years
 
31:13
This edition of COSMIC JOURNEYS explores the still unfolding story of Earth's past and the light it sheds on the science of climate change today. While that story can tell us about the mechanisms that can shape our climate. it's still the unique conditions of our time that will determine sea levels, ice coverage, and temperatures. Ice, in its varied forms, covers as much as 16% of Earth's surface, including 33% of land areas at the height of the northern winter. Glaciers, sea ice, permafrost, ice sheets and snow play an important role in Earth's climate. They reflect energy back to space, shape ocean currents, and spawn weather patterns. But there are signs that Earth's great stores of ice are beginning to melt. To find out where Earth might be headed, scientists are drilling down into the ice, and scouring ancient sea beds, for evidence of past climate change. What are they learning about the fate of our planet... a thousand years into the future and even beyond? 30,000 years ago, Earth began a relentless descent into winter. Glaciers pushed into what were temperate zones. Ice spread beyond polar seas. New layers of ice accumulated on the vast frozen plateau of Greenland. At three kilometers thick, Greenland's ice sheet is a monumental formation built over successive ice ages and millions of years. It's so heavy that it has pushed much of the island down below sea level. And yet, today, scientists have begun to wonder how resilient this ice sheet really is. Average global temperatures have risen about one degree Celsius since the industrial revolution. They could go up another degree by the end of this century. If Greenland's ice sheet were to melt, sea levels would rise by over seven meters. That would destroy or threaten the homes and livelihoods of up to a quarter of the world's population. With so much at stake, scientists are monitoring Earth's frozen zones... with satellites, radar flights, and expeditions to drill deep into ice sheets. And they are reconstructing past climates, looking for clues to where Earth might now be headed... not just centuries, but thousands of years in the future. Periods of melting and freezing, it turns out, are central events in our planet's history. That's been born out by evidence ranging from geological traces of past sea levels... the distribution of fossils... chemical traces that correspond to ocean temperatures, and more. Going back over two billion years, earth has experienced five major glacial or ice ages. The first, called the Huronian, has been linked to the rise of photosynthesis in primitive organisms. They began to take in carbon dioxide, an important greenhouse gas. That decreased the amount of solar energy trapped by the atmosphere, sending Earth into a deep freeze. The second major ice age began 580 million years ago. It was so severe, it's often referred to as "snowball earth." The Andean-Saharan and the Karoo ice ages began 460 and 360 million years ago. Finally, there's the Quaternary... from 2.6 million years ago to the present. Periods of cooling and warming have been spurred by a range of interlocking factors: the movement of continents, patterns of ocean circulation, volcanic events, the evolution of plants and animals. The world as we know it was beginning to take shape in the period from 90 to 50 million years ago. The continents were moving toward their present positions. The Americas separated from Europe and Africa. India headed toward a merger with Asia. The world was getting warmer. Temperatures spiked roughly 55 million years ago, going up about 5 degrees Celsius in just a few thousand years. CO2 levels rose to about 1000 parts per million compared to 280 in pre-industrial times, and 390 today. But the stage was set for a major cool down. The configuration of landmasses had cut the Arctic off from the wider oceans. That allowed a layer of fresh water to settle over it, and a sea plant called Azolla to spread widely. In a year, it can soak up as much as 6 tons of CO2 per acre. Plowing into Asia, the Indian subcontinent caused the mighty Himalayan Mountains to rise up. In a process called weathering, rainfall interacting with exposed rock began to draw more CO2 from the atmosphere... washing it into the sea. Temperatures steadily dropped. By around 33 million years ago, South America had separated from Antarctica. Currents swirling around the continent isolated it from warm waters to the north. An ice sheet formed. In time, with temperatures and CO2 levels continuing to fall, the door was open for a more subtle climate driver. It was first described by the 19th century Serbian scientist, Milutin Milankovic. He saw that periodic variations in Earth's rotational motion altered the amount of solar radiation striking the poles. In combination, every 100,000 years or so, these variations have sent earth into a period of cool temperatures and spreading ice.

May 11, 2011 : Diving Comet Approaches Sun - CME & Disintegration
 
01:54
May 11, 2011, Comet / fragment dives toward our sun. North-Western wing CME follows. It appears that there is either a shadow of the comet or what spaceweather.com considers as a "companion" to the diving comet. (Look to the right of the comet in LASCO C2) May 10-11, 2011: Comet / sun-grazer approaches. (Flaring before and after.) May 15, 2011: Comet / sun-grazer approaches. May 21, 2011: Comet / sun-grazer approaches. (18th-20th flaring) In ordinance of current science and limitations of not being able to follow the comet's nuclear cloud after disintegration, aside from the tail outburst at closest approach to our sun, the comet is said to have totally disintegrated long before it reaches the sun's surface. The solar disk looks "dusty" in comparison to 2007 through to approximately Sept.-Nov. 2010. Sunspots, particle showers and solar wind speeds are noticeably increasing this year. February 15th and March 9th, 2011 are dates thought to have displayed solar events which have not been witnessed since December 2006. Although solar events directed at Earth were fairly low in April 2011, compared to February and March averages, eruptions in April extended out millions of kilometers.. crossing Earth's orbital plane. Many ponder the possibilities of sun-grazers creating such explosive solar events. The problem is that there is vast speculation and subtle if any data to bridge this gap. I am curious if this is relative to the position of the satellites and or their spectroscopy of this particulate matter at the termination/outburst points. I am also curious if there is correlation between planets experiencing perihelion and aphelion and solar events. And the Milky Way Galaxy, the constellations and Jovian planets with many rings, moons and comets, how do they influence coronal holes, sunspots, sunspot bands, filaments and flares? Or not? :) Scientists are unsure whether or not sun-grazers that appear to disintegrate one million kilometers from the solar surface can cause such nuclear reactions / CMEs. (see below) --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Reference and Credits for the article below to http://www.spaceweather.com on May 13, 2011. " A comet goes in; a CME comes out. Coincidence? Probably, yes, the sequence was coincidental. The comet disintegrated as much as a million kilometers above the stellar surface. There's no known way that the wispy, vaporous remains of a relatively lightweight comet could cause a billion-ton cloud of hot plasma to fly away from the sun at 420 km/s (the observed speed of the CME). Moreover, NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory photographed the eruption that did propel the CME into space. There's no comet in the field of view of this movie.. http://www.spaceweather.com/images2011/12may11/eruption.mpg?PHPSESSID=qaisamtgp14al2sn9fch233br4 " Audio credit and thanks to Dano!

The Bridge. Russia’s grand project to link Crimea
 
47:12
RTD followed the Crimean Bridge construction project with former boxing world champion and now Russian State Duma Deputy Nikolay Valuev, who tries his hand at being a bridge builder. The film also uncovers the region’s hidden gems with Kerch native, singer Alyona Sviridova, who meets Crimeans for whom the bridge link is vital. With the bridge deck 35 metres above the water, the giant structure stretches 19 kilometres (12 miles). The bridge is expected to carry up to 40,000 vehicles and 94 trains a day, once it becomes fully operational in 2019. Although plans to span the strait with a bridge date back to the 19th century, the link became a practical necessity for the peninsula, which only has a land border with Ukraine, after Crimeans overwhelming voted to rejoin Russia in 2014. Nikolay Valuev begins his journey at the construction camp on the Taman Peninsula, where he joins men and women working on the site. To get the first-hand experience, Nikolay tries various jobs, from welding large metal tubes for future piles, to pouring concrete and operating an elevator which lifts builders onto the arches. The installation of the 6,000-ton arches marked a milestone in the construction of what is said to be the longest bridge in Europe and one of the largest in Russia. The link will significantly cut the time people have to spend on the road, queueing at the busy ferry crossing, often troubled by bad weather. “It took us three days of waiting in line to get on the ferry out of Crimea and a week to get on the ferry back,” says Yulia, who drives a truck from the resort city of Evpatoria to Moscow. Once complete, the bridge will also make it easier for holidaymakers to reach Crimea, a popular tourist destination for Russians. However, it’s not only the Black Sea resorts that are worth visiting. From getting muddy in Lake Chokrak, dubbed the Crimean Dead Sea, to fishing for anchovies, and grocery shopping at Kerch market, Alyona shows some of the off the beaten track Crimean attractions. Alyona meets a Crimean Tatar, named Reshat, who is searching for a bride. As he wants his future wife to be from Crimea, Reshat takes long, arduous journeys via ferry to the peninsula in pursuit of love. “Never mind the wines, it’s the bridge that connects us,” Irina tells her sister. With the Crimean Bridge now open to car traffic, learn more about the building of the much-awaited connection and get an inside look at Crimea’s must-see places.

Christian Music Video: Trip Hop Christian Music about the Wonders of the Universe
 
03:56
Christian Music Video: Trip Hop Christian Music about the Wonders of the Universe. Download the MP3 here: www.spearheadsofgod.com/index.php/music It is hard to comprehend the enormity of our Universe. Our Sun is only one of billions of stars in the Milky Way, and beyond our own galaxy, there are billions of others. Scientists continue to chop and change theories and ideas, yet they still only understand a very small percentage of the magnificence we call the universe. Here are 8 amazing facts about the Universe... 1. When you look into the night sky, you are looking back in time The stars we see in the night sky are very far away from us, so far the star light we see has taken a long time to travel across space to reach our eyes. This means whenever we look out into the night and gaze at stars we are actually experiencing how they looked in the past. For example, the bright star Vega is relatively close to us at 25 light-years away, so the light we see left the star 25 years ago; while Betelgeuse (pictured) in the constellation of Orion is 640 light-years away, so the light left the star around 1370, during the time of the Hundred Years’ War between England and France. Other stars we see are further away still, so we are seeing them much deeper in their past. 2. There’s a giant cloud of alcohol in Sagittarius B Sagittarius B is a vast molecular cloud of gas and dust floating near the centre of the Milky Way, 26,000 light-years from Earth, 463,000,000,000 kilometres in diameter and, amazingly, it contains 10-billion-billion-billion litres of alcohol. The vinyl alcohol in the cloud is far from the most flavoursome tipple in the universe, but it is an important organic molecule which offers some clues how the first building blocks of life-forming substances are produced. 3. It takes 225 million years for our Sun to travel round the galaxy Whilst the Earth and the other planets within our solar system orbit around the Sun, the Sun itself is orbiting around the centre of our galaxy, the Milky Way. It takes the Sun 225 million years to perform a complete circuit of the galaxy. The last time the Sun was in its current position in the galaxy the super-continent Pangaea was just about starting to break apart and early dinosaurs were making an appearance. 4. Our solar system’s biggest mountain is on Mars Olympus Mons on Mars is the tallest mountain on any of the planets of the Solar System. The mountain is a gigantic shield volcano (similar to volcanoes found in the Haiiwain Islands) standing at 26 kilometres tall and sprawling 600 kilometres across. To put this into scale, this makes the mountain almost three times the height of Mount Everest. 5. A year on Venus is shorter than its day Venus is the slowest rotating planet in our Solar System, so slow it takes longer to fully rotate than it does to complete its orbit. This means Venus has days that last longer than its years. It’s also home to one of the most inhospitable environments imaginable, with constant electronic storms, high CO2 readings, and it’s shrouded by clouds of sulfuric acid. 6. Neutron stars are the fastest spinning objects known in the universe Neutron stars are thought to be the fastest spinning objects in the universe. Pulsars are a particular type of neutron star that emits a beam of radiation which can be observed as a pulse of light as the star spins. The rate of this pulse allows astronomers to measure the rotation. The fastest spinning known pulsar is the catchily-titled PSR J1748-2446ad, which has an equator spinning at 24% the speed of light, which translates to over 70,000 kilometres per second. An artist’s impression of what this must look like is pictured above. 7. A spoonful of a neutron star weighs about a billion ton Neutron stars spin incredibly quickly and are also incredibly dense. It is estimated, if you could collect a tablespoon of matter from the centre of a neutron star, it would weigh about one billion tons. 8. It is estimated there are 400 billion stars in our galaxy Our Sun is essential to us, the centre of our Solar System, and our source of light and energy, but it is just one of many, many stars that make up our home galaxy, the Milky Way. Current estimates suggest there are around 400 billion stars sharing our galaxy. The artist’s concept above shows what a a dust disk around a baby star could well look like.Links: http://science.nationalgeographic.com/science/space/universe/ www.spearheadsofgod.com

Freezing 200,000 Tons of Lethal Arsenic Dust
 
04:34
Giant Mine sits near Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Once it was a productive gold mine, but after the gold ran out, the mining company went bankrupt and left the government to clean up the mess: enough arsenic trioxide dust to kill everyone on Earth. The solution: freezing it, at least for now. Thanks to all the team at the Giant Mine Remediation Project!

China Air Transport and Airport Industry Report 2015-2018
 
00:37
Complete report is available @ http://www.chinamarketresearchreports.com/115015.html . China Air Transport and Airport Industry Report, 2015-2018 focuses on the following: • Development environment for air transport industry in China, covering economic environment, policy environment, and social environment; • Operation status of air transport industry and low-cost aviation market in China; • Operation status of airport transportation in China, including passenger throughput, cargo & mail throughput, and airplane takeoffs and landings; • Overall economic results of air transport industry in China, encompassing revenues and total profits of companies in the industry; • 16 major airlines in China, including financial situation, transport capacity, carrying capacity, load factor, development strategy, and performance forecast; • 15 major transport airports in China, including financial situation, three production index, and performance forecast; • Forecast on main data of China’s air transport industry for 2015-2018. Since 2014, despite negative influence from slower economic growth at home and abroad and high-speed railway on Chinese aviation market demand, China’s civil aviation passenger throughput still kept relatively rapid growth driven by tourist’s leisure demand, and cargo & mail throughput rallied slightly driven by a pickup in exports. In the first eleven months of 2014, China’s total civil aviation turnover, passenger turnover, and cargo & mail turnover reached 68.385 billion ton-kilometers, 580.181 billion passenger-kilometers, and 16.874 billion ton-kilometers, a year-on-year increase of 11.1%, 11.60%, and 8.8%, respectively. To improve performance, the airlines in China have sought to make progress in two aspects since 2013: accelerate the opening up of international and regional routes; speed to expand into low-cost aviation industry. Purchase a copy of this report @ http://www.chinamarketresearchreports.com/contacts/purchase.php?name=115010 . The airlines suffered heavy exchange losses due to yuan depreciation against dollar. In the first three quarters of 2014, four big airlines all saw sharp decline in net income, with China Eastern Airlines falling the hardest, at 48.94%. Compared with significant drop in profits of the four big airlines since 2010, Spring Airlines, a representative of budget airlines, has enjoyed continuous increase in revenue and net income ever since 2011, with the latter recording a growth of 4.17% in the first three quarters of 2014. Actively opening up new routes: In 2014, Air China added 12 routes (4 domestic ones and 8 international ones), totaling 33 international routes from 2012. In the same year, China Southern Airlines opened 9 new international routes, bringing the total newly-added international routes to 26 since 2012. Speeding layout in low-cost aviation industry: In Mar. 2013, China West Air announced to transform into a low-cost carrier; in Jun. 2013, Hong Kong Express Airways announced its intention to transform into a low-cost carrier; on Jul. 2014, China Eastern Airlines announced its subsidiary China United Airlines to convert into a low-cost airline; on Jan. 21, 2015, Spring Airlines got its shares listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange, becoming the first listed low-cost airline in China.

Sydney Metro: start of city tunnelling
 
03:09
Tunnelling started on 17 October 2018 to deliver twin new metro railway tunnels below the centre of Sydney and deep under Sydney Harbour. Tunnel boring machine (TBM) Nancy is one of the five mega borers which will build 31 kilometres of tunnels between Marrickville and Chatswood. The TBM has been named Nancy in honour of transport pioneer Nancy Bird Walton OBE. Sydney Metro acting chief executive Tom Gellibrand and Terry Sleiman, the project director for tunnellers John Holland CPB Ghella, outline the massive tunnelling task. Nancy and another TBM will tunnel 8.1 kilometres from Marrickville to the new Sydney Metro station sites at Waterloo, Central, Pitt Street, Martin Place and on to Barangaroo, where they will be removed from deep underground. The TBMs are about 150 metres long – that’s longer than two Airbus A380s – and specially designed for Sydney’s geology to cut through hard sandstone. The five TBMs will excavate 5.9 million tonnes of rock – enough to fill about 940 Olympic swimming pools. This is the first time in Australian history that five TBMs have worked on a transport infrastructure project. The borers are underground tunnelling factories, mechanical worms designed to dig and line the tunnels as they go so that Sydney Metro can be delivered as quickly as possible. Nancy is specially designed to cut through sandstone and shale and will tunnel an average of 120 metres a week. Two TBMs will also dig 6.2 kilometres from Chatswood to the edge of Sydney Harbour. A fifth machine has been specially designed to deliver the twin tunnels under Sydney Harbour. It is traditional to give a female name to all machines which work underground, because workers look to Saint Barbara for protection. Nancy Bird Walton OBE was an Australian pioneer aviator, the first female pilot in the Commonwealth to carry passengers and the founder of the Australian Women Pilots' Association. Yesterday (16 October 2018) would have been Nancy Bird-Walton’s 103rd birthday. This project opens in 2024 and will extend Sydney Metro from the city’s north west, where services start in 2019. In 2024 Sydney will have 31 metro stations and a new 66 kilometre standalone metro railway.

Check out the strangest geological occurrences ever discovered! This top 10 list of weird and unexplained mysterious phenomena has some of the weirdest geological formations discovered to this day! Subscribe For New Videos! http://goo.gl/UIzLeB Watch our "STRANGEST Artifacts Ever Discovered!" video here: https://youtu.be/gG0XGt3jFZA Watch our "SECRETS Casinos DON'T Want You To Find Out!" video here: https://youtu.be/hAoABuvzOZM Watch our "RAREST And Most EXPENSIVE Cars In The World!" video here: https://youtu.be/MtCnWSqqilg 11. Striped Icebergs As water gets colder, there are numerous interesting occurrences that happen. There are "ice fingers" that can literally grow from the top of a frozen body of water and touch the bottom. There are also things that can be trapped in the ice perfectly preserved. But nothing is as strange...as colored icebergs. Or more specifically, striped icebergs. 10. The Crystal Cave While it's true that many geological wonders and oddities are found above ground, many are found underground. And for two brothers, they made the discovery of a lifetime when they found a cave entirely full of crystals. And I'm not talking tiny little crystals, I mean massive ones. Some of these crystals are estimated to weigh around 55 tons!! 9. The Chocolate Hills Sorry to disappoint you but I’m sad to say these are NOT actually hills made of chocolate. They wouldn’t be around anymore if they were!!! Anyway, in the Philippines, in the Bohol Province, you will find over 1200 mounds of limestone that are known as the "Chocolate Hills". Why? Because in the Summer season the grass on the mounds dry up and they turn a particularly dark brown color, which makes it resemble chocolate kisses. 8. Moeraki Boulders Sometimes the oddest of occurrences have the simplest scientific explanation, but it still boggles the mind! The Moeraki Boulders in New Zealand are large, round boulders with what looks like intricate details carved onto them. Some of them even look like a plate of armor of sorts. 7. Kilauea Volcano Ok, full warning here, volcanoes are DANGEROUS!!! Public Service Announcement over. Seriously though, volcanoes are another great example of a geological wonders and they are very dramatic and strange occurrences. Even though we know why they happen, sometimes they erupt for no reason at all, and that can really catch us all by surprise. However, one strange occurrence that we can count on is Kilauea Volcano on Hawaii. 6. Rainbow Mountains While these may look like regular mountains from afar, as you get closer, you can see that the colors get more and more beautiful. These mountains are a geological wonder of the world and are known for their coloring which looks like someone took a paintbrush and painted a rainbow directly on to the mountains! 5. Eye of The Sahara The desert can be a beautiful and strange place to find rock formations and other geological wonders. The Eye of the Sahara had been hiding in plain sight for years!! It was only recently known to us in the modern era because it was detected from space. When you see it from the sky and look down at the Eye of the Sahara, you'd see it makes a bullseye. How's that for strange? 4. Mount Roraima Mount Roraima is one of the oldest mountain formations on earth, estimated to be around 2 billion years old!! The floating island plateau is a completely real natural wonder, surrounded by three South American countries including Brazil, Guyana and Venezuela. 3. Stone Forest This stone forest of Shilin in China covers 300 square kilometers and looks like the landscape from another planet. These stone pillars or karst formations, are bunched together in such a way that it actually forms what looks like a stone forest. There are now trees around these stones to help sell the effect. These formations are over 270 million years old. 2. The Disappearing River This one is as cool as it is strange. In 2016, nature decided to divert a river in Canada, and it left a lot of people in scientific community scratching their heads as to what was going on. An expedition team was going to the Slims River Basin in Yukon Territory in Canada. When they got there, they found the river, the whole river, was gone. 1. Magnetic Lake There is something weird going on in the water at Lake Lonar! Located in Maharashtra, India, this lake actually causes magnetic disturbances. To the extent that it interferes with electrical equipment and makes compasses can go crazy when they are near it. (Kind of like the rumors from the Bermuda Triangle!)

Difference between Indian and Japan railways
 
02:04
Indian railways: Indian Railways (reporting mark IR) is a state-owned national transportation system, and it is responsible for rail transport in India. It is owned and operated by the Government of India through the Ministry of Railways. It is the fourth largest railway network in the worldcomprising 119,630 kilometres (74,330 mi) of total track[4] and 92,081 km (57,216 mi) of running track over a route of 66,687 km (41,437 mi) with 7,216 stations at the end of 2015-16.[2] In 2015-16, IR carried 8.107 billion passengers annually or more than 22 million passengers a day and 1.101 billion tons of freight annually.[2] As of the end of 2015-16, of the total 68,525 km (42,579 mi) route length, 28,327 km (17,602 mi) or 45% were electrified and 28,371 km (17,629 mi) or 37% were double or multiple line routes.[5] The railway network is predominantly a broad gaugenetwork. Small stretches of the network use metre and narrow gauges. All the electrified lines use 25 kV AC electric traction.[2] Japan railways: The Japan Railways Group, more commonly known as JR Group (JRグループ Jeiāru Gurūpu), consists of six for-profit companies that took over most of the assets and operations of the government-owned Japanese National Railways on April 1, 1987. Most of the liability of the JNR was assumed by the JNR Settlement Corporation.The JR Group lies at the heart of Japan's railway network, operating a large proportion of intercity rail service (including the Shinkansen high-speed rail lines) and commuter rail service. Despite JR East, JR Central and JR West now having full private ownership, Japanese people often talk about "private railways" as if none of JR Group (nor third sector former JR lines) is part of them, since they are successors of "national railways" i.e. JNR. Maps almost always denoted JR and private railways differently, as does JR itself.[1]

Pale Blue Dot is a photograph of planet Earth taken on February 14, 1990, by the Voyager 1 space probe from a record distance of about 6 billion kilometers (3.7 billion miles, 40 AU), as part of the Family Portrait series of images of the Solar System. In the photograph, Earth's apparent size is less than a pixel; the planet appears as a tiny dot against the vastness of space, among bands of sunlight scattered by the camera's optics. From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it's different. Consider again that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there – on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

My daily trek to Temple University. Twitter - www.twitter.com/pizzaboynizza Facebook - www.facebook.com/justinnizza iTunes - https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/justin-nizza/id901925263 Rail transport services in Japan are provided by more than 100 private companies, including Six Japan Railways Group (JR) regional companies (state owned until 1987) which provide passenger services to most parts of Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku, and Kyushu; The nationwide JR freight company; and 16 major regional companies which provide railway services as part of their corporate operations. There are also dozens of smaller local private railways. Many of the private rail companies rank among the top corporations in the country. Railways were built by private corporations developing integrated communities along the railway lines, allowing them to achieve profitability by diversifying into real estate, retail, and numerous other businesses.[1] Regional governments, and companies funded jointly by regional governments and private companies, also provide rail service. There are 27,268 km of rail crisscrossing the country. JR (a group of companies formed after privatization of JNR) controlled 20,135 km of these lines as of March 31, 1996, with the remaining 7,133 km in the hands of private enterprise local railway companies. Japan's railways carried 7.289 billion passengers (260 billion passenger-kilometres) in the year 2013-14.[2] In comparison, Germany has over 40,000 km of railways, but carries only 2.2 billion passengers per year.[3] Because of the massive use of its railway system, Japan is home to 46 of the world's 50 busiest stations.[4] Fukuoka, Kobe, Kyoto, Nagoya, Osaka, Sapporo, Sendai, Tokyo and Yokohama have subway systems. However, unlike Europe, the vast majority of passenger traffic is on suburban commuter trains that criss-cross metropolitan areas. In addition, many cities have streetcar and monorail networks. Japan pioneered the high-speed shinkansen or "bullet train", which now links Japan's largest cities at speeds of up to 320 km/h (200 mph). However, other trains running on the conventional line or "zairaisen" remain relatively slow, operating at fastest 160 km/h and mostly under 130 km/h. Japan's railways carried 31 million tons (21 billion tonne-kilometres) of goods in 2013-14.[2] The share of railways in the national logistics is as small as 6.2% (2010), by far the lowest in the G8.[5]
