Life is fun

Polar bear (Ursus maritimus)

Svalbard

This cub does not have any siblings to play with, and its mother is only occasionally and reluctantly returning the playful approaches. As with all kids it’s looking for things to do and fun things to discover, and here it’s likely wondering what its mother is going to do next.

From our point of view this is a super cute and cuddly cub and it’s hard not to utter “aaaw” when you see it in such a child-like posture, but soon it will become a formidable predator if it survives to adulthood.

With the sea ice shrinking fast, so is the access to food, so it is in luck to have a mother that has found a way to sea ice in the summer, as that is where the food is. But soon the sea ice will be a shadow of its past, and much further to the north than this at 81.31 degrees north, so the future is truly uncertain.

Is our species about to take an evolutionary leap? "I think that the definition of being human is about to change a lot in the next century," says Michelle Thaller, astronomer and Assistant Director for Science Communication at NASA. Over the next few decades, Thaller speculates that humanity's augmented evolution will begin as we start to merge with A.I.s.

Found by the roadside

It's always a bonus finding some beautiful flowers while walking Billy and Archie, but not terribly easy to hold the camera still while they're pulling on their leashes :)

'Potentially Hazardous' Monster Asteroid Will Fly Past Earth February 4

On February 4, 2018, 'potentially hazardous asteroid' 2002 AJ129 will be flying past us, at a distance of about 2.6 million miles away. At over 10 times the distance between the Earth and the Moon at its closest point, this will be a completely safe encounter, but an important one for scientists studying these relics of the early solar system.

Discovered just over 16 years ago, on January 15, 2002, this asteroid - formally named (276033) 2002 AJ129 - was labelled as 'potentially hazardous', due to its size and how close it gets during its flybys of Earth. Any asteroid that is larger than 459 feet wide, and comes closer to Earth than 4.6 million miles (0.05 astronomical units) during any of its close approaches, is added to this category.

2002 AJ129 is somewhere between 0.3 km and 0.75 miles wide, and between the years 1900 and 2200, it makes 4 close approaches that are within the 0.05 AU limit, so it easily qualifies.

This flyby, on Feb 4, will be the closest approach by the asteroid since Feb 6, 1904, when it was just over 1.8 million miles away, and it will be the closest until Feb 5, 2087, when it will be just over 2.3 million miles away.

Such a close pass by such a large asteroid gives radio astronomers an excellent opportunity to study the object, in detail, as it whizzes past. Already, the radio telescopes at the Arecibo and Goldstone observatories are scheduled to be pointed at 2002 AJ129 during its time of closest approach.

"Our calculations indicate that asteroid 2002 AJ129 has no chance - zero - of colliding with Earth on Feb. 4," said Paul Chodas, manager of NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object Studies at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in a NASA press release.

The seemingly unremarkable crystals that could help predict volcanic eruptions - They may look inconspicuous and unremarkable, and most people wouldn't notice them, but small crystals in volcanic rocks, such as lava, may hold the key to better understanding advance warnings of volcanic eruptions.

One solution of depression is to take a medication prescribed by a doctor, however, many of these are addictive and have side effects, such as insomnia, nausea or emotional numbness. So, you may want to try a natural treatment first to see if your symptoms subside.
