Walkabout the Galaxy
Astrophysics and Astronomy | Physics
Sometimes it seems like you can't count on anything, and now the Earth's north pole is on the move at a dramatically accelerated rate, more than 30 miles per year. Of course, that's not the rotation pole, but the magnetic pole, and it's not the north magnetic pole, it's the magnetic north pole. Confused? That's what the astroquarks are here for. Tune in for this, more interesting news about the complicated environments around the cool red stars that are home to so many exoplanets, space news, and trivia.
The Heat Death of the Universe
Worried about all those bills piling up? Stressed about meeting that deadline at work. Disappointed with how that presentation went? Dishwasher on the fritz? The Heat Death of the Universe is here to provide you with some much needed context for your problems. Forget about the price of gas, because when the universe reaches its state of maximum entropy and thermodynamic equilibrium, there won't be any work to be done or energy to be had or anything except a giant cold sea of disorder. So when the troubles of life have got you down, count your lucky stars that there are still stars in the sky, places that are colder than other places, and things like molecules! The Heat Death of the Universe: for the little things in life.
