Scenario number 3 Connecting Continents

ConnectingAfter 250 million years, Australia to connect with Asia, Japan will disappear, America and Russia will be represented by a single entity. The formation of new mountain ranges, active volcanoes.
It was called Pangea – from the Greek word meaning “whole earth” – and was a huge continent, which is almost 250 million years ago, water washed the Peace of the ocean. Its decay into fragments accompanied by terrible calamities that claimed many life forms. However, in the distant future Pangea begins to form again, even if its appearance is not the same as it was then. In ancient times the Earth’s surface shape as a result of continental drift – a phenomenon related to the structure of the globe, which, as everyone knows, consists of three layers: core, mantle and crust. The upper part of the mantle and crust form a hard layer – the lithosphere, which floats on the surface of a deep layer of the mantle, which consists of semi-hot rocks. According to scientists a slow ascent and immersion of giant fragments of the Earth’s mantle and creates just the force that drags the lithosphere plates, like luggage on the belt at the airport.

Scenario number 2 comet rain

rainEvery 30 million years from the boundaries of our solar system just poured rain on us from the heavenly bodies and kills all living things. Beyond the orbit of the most “extreme” of the planet, Pluto, stretches the Edgeworth-Kuiper Belt, a ring-shaped region, populated by small cold bodies, which only recently began to speak. The diameter of the large object from this belt – 1200 km (less than a satellite of Pluto Charon, with a diameter of 1270 km). Many of these bodies had previously been in the Oort cloud, a vast area around the sun, inhabited by billions of comets. It surrounds our planetary system, extending over a great distance, and fills nearly half the space that separates us from Alpha Centauri, the largest of the closest stars to us. Despite the fact that the temperature of bodies that inhabit the cloud is very low, quiet expect, at best, about a few million years, and then catastrophe strikes. Read the rest of this entry »

Scenario number 1 Gamma-ray

rayThe explosion of one of the stars of the galaxy, destroy the Earth. It was in 1967. The U.S. military could not believe my eyes. Researchers at the gamma-rays using just placed in orbit a satellite designed to monitor compliance with international agreements on nuclear weapons, permanently recorded signals arriving daily, as initially thought, with the USSR. These signals occur when the atomic bomb. But it turned out that the gamma-rays do not come from Soviet nuclear tests (according to the contract they were not really), and from a cosmic source of unknown origin. Observing the military secret of the strange outbursts were not informed the public until 1973. When these data were finally opened to astrophysicists, they plunged the scientists by surprise.

Soon the plants will stop growing?

growingThe world can slow down the end of this century due to air pollution. High concentrations of ozone, which arose due to air pollution will damage plants and will not allow them to absorb carbon dioxide, which gives them life. These changes would have occurred even in spite of the increased carbon dioxide levels caused by global warming. Researchers believe that as a result of high concentrations of carbon dioxide the plants would grow very well. One of the positive aspects of global warming and increased carbon dioxide levels would also be that the plants will grow faster as carbon dioxide is known to be “food” for plants, participating in photosynthesis. Plants, in turn, greatly affect the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere , being a kind of means its absorption and regulation. Read the rest of this entry »

Found new life forms at a depth of 3.5 km!

lifeThe world new species of crustaceans and an incredible amount of new life forms, ranging from squid skin with “polka-dot”, reminiscent of the ball for a game of beach volleyball, to the sinister viper fish with teeth like ice icicles. These findings made the team of scientists, consisting of 31 persons, while five-week expedition to the underwater ridge in the middle of the Atlantic. The expedition was aimed at the discovery of previously unknown life forms. The observations were made with managed at a distance of vehicles, equipped with digital camera / video cameras and other devices. Deep-sea instruments surveyed areas at depths ranging from 800 to 3500 meters and passed on the surface of the amazing paintings Read the rest of this entry »

What was the ancestor of DNA?

DNAThe common ancestor of nucleic acids TNK – acid, which is simpler in structure than DNA and RNA, and thus has the ability to acquire complex structure and can store and reproduce information. Life on earth rests on the two nucleic acids – DNA and RNA. Almost all organisms use DNA to store genetic information, and its molecule is perfectly suited for storing and sharing data from generation to generation. A variety of RNA used for the implementation of this genetic information to translate it into protein molecules. But if things were always this way? Scientists have been trying to understand how the formation of this complex system of memorization, repetition, and the realization of genetic information. The complexity of the DNA molecule makes one doubt that it existed “since time began.” To copy DNA, requires a fairly subtle enzymatic machine. Read the rest of this entry »

Ahnenerbe

One of the most mysterious of scientific societies that ever existed in recent history. The rise and its development, the Ahnenerbe was a Nazi Germany, where he actively supported Adolf Hitler.

Kumamoto Castle

The eponymous Japanese province, is one of the most magnificent monuments in the land of the rising sun. Translated from the Japanese, “Kumamoto” is translated as “crow nest.” The history of the castle takes from 1468, when the site of the palace was founded by a small military fort to strengthen the coastline from possible attack. However, from 1601 to 1607, the fort was enlarged and remodeled in the social apartments. It should be noted that in many respects, the appearance of the castle of Kumamoto, like the Korean style of construction, because at that time, the building was built according to drawings, taken out from this country. Since 1874, when Japan was once again returned to power from the shogunate to the monarchy, Kumamoto castle ceased to be the center of gravity of the imperial family. Read the rest of this entry »
