    Time dilation is awesome.

    It's complicated kinda, but it's really cool! So light is traveling the fastest anything can go (we say "speed of light" but gravitons are expected to travel the same speed), so what happens if you're approaching the speed of this, the speed limit of the universe? There's...

    It's Alive!

    What you've just seen is the reaction of mercury thiocyanate when exposed to a heat source. This is an exothermic reaction - it gives off heat and light.The reaction also produces various gases that result in the snake-like ash. In fact, this substance was used in pyrotechnics...
