  1. There isn't, it's click bait. They mean gravitational waves. Which aren't new are they. In fact, I used it in the OP title for the same reason.
  2. https://amp.businessinsider.com/gravitational-waves-new-class-of-collision-neutron-stars-2020-1?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral This article has some really amazing pictures/photos too. This supercomputer simulation shows one of the most violent events in the universe: a pair of neutron stars colliding, merging and forming a black hole. A neutron star is the compressed core left behind when a star born with between eight and 30 times the sun's mass explodes as a supernova. Neutron stars pack about 1.5 times the mass of the sun — equivalent to about half a million Earths — into a ball just 12 miles across. NASA Goddard

  4. Iranian plane crash https://www.newsweek.com/iranians-shot-down-ukraine-flight-mistake-sources-1481313?amp=1&utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral ...........…............................................................... Trump now wants US and Iran to work together https://www.newsweek.com/donald-trump-remarks-iran-missile-strike-1481084
  5. Also, as pointed out in the OP, it's not the Mosquitoe that kills, it's the parasite it carries. What about humans? Everything else seems to get along just fine until we show up and f**k it up. Having said that, the majority of people are kind and respectful, so maybe just a healthy purge instead. 🤑🥊 (joking of course)
  6. In this geological map of the volcanic field's summit region, the dashed, yellow ellipse marks the buried crater perimeter for the best-fitting gravity model. The dashed, white circle marks the buried perimeter that best fits geological observations.

  7. I agree completely, although there is some good quality channels on YouTube, if you don't understand the details and are just a layman it can be hard to tell if it's real or just a hypothesis. But if you think their bad, you should see some of the stuff on Quora
  8. Iran plane crash. Experts doubt 'Technical failure'. https://www.aol.co.uk/news/2020/01/08/iran-plane-was-most-likely-shot-down-say-experts/ What a wonderful start to the new year. A new war.
  9. Ok I'm no scientist and someone more qualified than me will surely give a better answer, but, in layman terms, the galaxies aren't actually moving faster than light. It's not the galaxies moving but the space between them, giving the appearance that the galaxies are moving faster than light. https://phys.org/news/2015-10-galaxies-faster.html
  10. The brain has it's limitations just like everything else. But there impressive nonetheless. https://www.livescience.com/53751-brain-could-store-internet.html
  11. Not sure if this will help you or not. Some of these are online and some are international, and they're expensive too. https://www.switchup.org/rankings/best-coding-bootcamp https://www.cio.com/article/3222718/the-10-best-coding-bootcamps.htm https://www.thebalancecareers.com/coding-bootcamps-in-nyc-2071394 Edit- just read your OP title, 1-2 weeks. These will be useless then. Sorry.
  12. A - Yes, it's called 'thinning', but it's controversial. Quick search found this from 2009. Quote- "Fire-science experts say that overgrown forests must be thinned. Environmentalists say that thinning is really an excuse to engage in destructive logging. And then everybody heads to court". https://www.csmonitor.com/Environment/Bright-Green/2009/0902/wildfires-the-causes-and-solutions B- I imagine this would require so much removal of forest when added up you'd run into the same problems as A.
  13. Sky news- Is the US attack a 'wag the dog scenario? Trump saying Obama will start a war with Iran at 1:25.
  14. Not likely soon, but... New research has put forward another idea for what such a radical stellar engine might look like. Via this beautiful video via Kurgesagt you can learn all about the so-called Caplan Thruster, which would use the Sun's own energy to propel it across the galaxy and beyond. It's named after the scientist who came up with the design, astrophysicist Matthew Caplan from Illinois State University. ....The Caplan Thruster would sit close to the Sun, using electromagnetic fields to gather hydrogen and helium from the solar wind to use as fuel. That would power two jets of energy – one using helium, pushed through a fusion reactor to create a jet of radioactive oxygen that would move the Caplan Thruster forward, and one using hydrogen, to maintain distance from the Sun and to push it forward. The Caplan Thruster would essentially act as a kind of tugboat. https://www.sciencealert.com/what-is-a-stellar-engine-and-could-it-help-us-escape-a-supernova/amp?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S0094576519312457
  15. The XENON1T detector has allowed scientists to observe an ultra-rare event: the radioactive decay of xenon-124. https://www.cnet.com/google-amp/news/dark-matter-scientists-observe-the-rarest-event-ever-recorded/?utm_source=quora&utm_medium=referral
  16. Happy Christmas everyone 🎅🏻
  17. Charles Darwin's work was based on observation and research over many years.
  18. Brilliant. Especially love the serpent, never heard of this before now. 👍🏻
  19. Let me get this right, You think nuclear and alien technology couldn't destroy a Pyramid? Why would aliens travel all this way and only bring one bomb And the reason people put themselves so deep into the soil is usually because they've died. So no need to worry about aliens or a nuclear attack.

  21. U.K. police officers aren't above the law. Can't find a recent survey, I think they do them every five years. From 2015:- Officers convicted of offences PC Keith Wallis was jailed for 12 months for lying about witnessing an altercation in Downing Street involving the former Tory chief whip, Andrew Mitchell. Osman Iqbal was given 7 years of jail time for prostitution, supplying a class-A drug, and money laundering in 2014. Chris Higgs admitted to 16 crimes, including blackmail, fraud, perverting the court of justice, and witness interference, in March 2015. Constable Trevor Jones jailed for 14 months after bombarding vulnerable women with sleazy text and voice messages in June 2015.

  22. Not a TV series (25 years old) but still very, very good. The Day After, on YouTube.
