    I remember going to Hayden Planetarium

    when I was around 7. It was the most spiritual experience I could ever have. I saw stars, planets, galaxies, and I became forever hooked. Science became my world!

    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...

    Ancient Water

    Scientists have discovered water that is estimated to be between 1.5 and 2.64 billion years old. It was found in a mine near Timmins, Ontario, Canada. These are among the oldest waters ever discovered. This water was likely on the surface back at that time, but infiltrated into...

    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...

    I went to see Neil DeGraase-Tyson speak several
