Michio Kaku dubbed Alcubierre's notion a "passport to the universe." It takes advantage of a quirk in the cosmological code that allows for the expansion and contraction of space-time, and could allow for hyper-fast travel between interstellar destinations. Essentially, the empty space behind a starship would be made to expand rapidly, pushing the craft in a forward direction — passengers would perceive it as movement despite the complete lack of acceleration.

Scientists speculate that such a drive could result in "speeds" that could take a spacecraft to Alpha Centauri in a mere two weeks — even though the system is 4.3 light-years away.

Something Very Strange Is Happening To Jupiter's Great Red Spot

Jupiter is the largest and oldest planet in our solar system.
Its history spans 4.5 billion years. This gas giant is made of the same elements as a star, but it didn't grow massive enough to ignite.

Jupiter's appearance is the result of its swirling interior of gases and liquids - producing a tapestry of colorful cloud bands as well as the iconic Great Red Spot.

The Great Red Spot is a gigantic storm. It's an anticyclone, and with no land mass on the planet to slow it down, the Great Red Spot has rages for over a century.

But scientists studying the spot have noticed that it has been changing over time. The color is deepening, and it's actually shrinking and getting rounder.

Those studying it expected to therefore see the wind speeds inside the Great Red Spot increasing as the storm shrinks - like an ice skater who spins faster as she pulls in her arms. But this isn't the case. Data reveals the storm isn't spinning faster, it's actually getting taller. You can think of it like working with pottery. As the wide lump of clay spins, forces within are driving it taller.

So from our perspective, looking down on the clouds, we see the spot smaller and rounder.

The Great Red Spot used to be big enough to fit three Earths.
Now, it's just a little over one.

These discoveries were made by analyzing data from numerous space missions, including Voyager, Hubble, and most recently, Juno. And through more investigations, scientists hope to unlock more secrets of the mysterious Great Red Spot.

A subset of studies also measured brain activity in students with growth and fixed mindsets, and showed that students with a fixed mindset showed stronger reaction to negative feedback, which slowed their ability to process new questions after missing a question.

Could Your Next Holiday Home Be 3D Printed?

"From a distance, the concrete house in Milan resembles many other modern European designs — the exterior is bright white, and green plants sprout from the rooftop. Upon closer inspection, though, you’ll notice the perfectly straight lines etched in the building material throughout: The entire house was 3D printed. And while this particular model is a prototype, it’s one example of a revolution playing out worldwide, from the Netherlands to Nantes, France; El Salvador to Estonia; and Moscow to — if NASA has its way — even Mars.

While Washington debates a ban on 3D-printed guns, others are using the technology to help rebuild lives. Faced with a crippling housing crisis globally, an emerging set of companies and nonprofits is developing 3D-printing technology that can produce ready-to-use construction materials to build houses faster and often at lower costs than by conventional methods..."

#HowToBuyPerfectClothing For Yourself?

We are bringing some of the important aspects to consider before buying a perfect dress for yourself for the right occasion. We buy numerous clothes and end up stuffing our closet with unnecessary ones that do not fit our body type or don’t look good on us. We say to some clothes, ‘I will wear you when I will be slim and slender’ and it just remains in the closet for years.

So, these are the points to consider before going on a shopping trip to the nearest mall. - https://floradress.com/buy-perfect-clothing/
