For the second time in history, a human-made object has reached the space between the stars. Our Voyager 2 probe now has exited the heliosphere – the protective bubble of particles and magnetic fields created by the Sun.

Comparing data from different instruments aboard the trailblazing spacecraft, mission scientists determined the probe crossed the outer edge of the heliosphere on Nov. 5. This boundary, called the heliopause, is where the tenuous, hot solar wind meets the cold, dense interstellar medium. Its twin, Voyager 1, crossed this boundary in 2012, but Voyager 2 carries a working instrument that will provide first-of-its-kind observations of the nature of this gateway into interstellar space.

Voyager 2 now is slightly more than 11 billion miles (18 billion kilometers) from Earth. Mission operators still can communicate with Voyager 2 as it enters this new phase of its journey, but information – moving at the speed of light – takes about 16.5 hours to travel from the spacecraft to Earth. By comparison, light traveling from the Sun takes about eight minutes to reach Earth.

Our atmosphere is active and ever-changing – except when it isn’t. Some areas, including many cities, are prone to what’s known as a temperature inversion, where a layer of cooler air gets trapped underneath a warmer one. Because this means that a dense layer is caught under a less dense one, the situation is stable and – absent other changes in circumstances – will stick around. There are several ways this can happen, including overnight when areas near the ground cool faster than the atmosphere higher up. 

When temperature inversions persist, they can trap pollutants and create health hazards. One of the worst of these recorded occurred in December 1952 in London. An anticyclone created a temperature inversion over the city that trapped smoke from coal burned to warm homes and reduced visibility – sometimes even indoors – to only a meter or two. Thousands of people died from the respiratory effects of the five-day smog, and it prompted major efforts to improve emissions and air quality. Temperature inversions cannot be avoided, but the Great Smog of London taught us the necessity of reducing their danger.  (Image credit: Getty Images)

I Don’t Know

Young Tumblr, student Tumblr: at some point you’re going to be interested enough in something that you’re going to ask someone who knows a lot more than you a question about it and they’re going to say “I don’t know”, or they’re going to give you an answer that doesn’t sound quite right to you, and it will set your mind churning.  

This is a critical moment.  In this moment you are between acceptance and curiosity.  If you accept the “I don’t know” and turn it into “we, as humans, don’t have this piece of knowledge yet” and you are comfortable with that, then you haven’t found “your thing” yet.  That’s ok.  If, however, it still is jingling around in the back of your mind and you keep trying to fit the puzzle pieces together, I need you to know that you can absolutely go and look for the answer yourself.  I’m not gonna lie, sometimes it’s frustrating and it’s time-consuming, but it’s satisfying.  You are allowed to read the primary research, you are allowed to find new ideas by putting the pieces together yourself.  

You need to know that your perspective is unique, and just because a path is well-traveled doesn’t mean you won’t notice something someone else missed.

Why Haven’t Scientists Found ‘Earth 2.0’ Yet?

“Over the past 30 years, astronomers have gone from zero known extra-solar planets to thousands. Periodic changes in a star’s motion or regular brightness dips give them away. Thanks to these techniques, we’ve revealed the masses and radii of worlds nearby and thousands of light years away. Over 200 are Earth-sized, with many residing in the so-called habitable zone around their stars. Yet with everything we’ve found, there are no potentially habitable Earth-like worlds around Sun-like stars.”

One of the greatest success stories over the past 30 years is the giant leap forward we’ve taken in understanding what worlds lie beyond our Solar System. We’ve gone, in that time, from exactly zero known planets beyond our Solar System to thousands. We’ve found worlds far larger than Jupiter, some of which revolve at distances interior to even Mercury’s orbit. We’ve found planets around blue supergiants and red dwarfs. And we’ve discovered small worlds, some of which are even smaller than Earth. Some of them even occur in the so-called habitable zone of their stars.

Yet, despite all of this, we have yet to discover a single Earth-sized world at an Earth-like distance orbiting a Sun-like star. Here’s why we haven’t gotten there yet.

Biological sciences is the study of life and living organisms, their life cycles, adaptations and environment. At Scranton students get one-on-one interaction with our faculty, in-depth experience in the process of science, learn laboratory techniques, as well as share in the excitement of scientific discovery.

How 2 New York Women Erased $1.5 Million In Medical Debt For Hundreds Of Strangers
Judith Jones and Carolyn Kenyon discuss their fundraising efforts that resulted in $1.5 million medical bill debt forgiveness for New York strangers.

Some New Yorkers received an early Christmas present this year - a little, yellow envelope that came through the mail, inside, a letter telling the person that their medical debt has been forgiven. This act of kindness comes courtesy of Carolyn Kenyon and Judith Jones, who both live in Ithaca, N.Y. The two friends met through the Finger Lakes chapter of the Campaign for New York Health.

They’re both big supporters of a single-payer health system. And they were looking for a project to work on together to highlight the problems with the health care system. They decided on medical debt.

-* This is a throwback to when I was in Technorama, also Switzerland.

Technorama is a science museum that has really cool things to see!

Idek what these bubbles were, but they give out a very vibrate-purple vaporwave aesthetic so I decided to take a pic!

Have you ever been to Technorama? if not, you should rly go! 

If you have, what do you think about it? -*
