Science is Cool....

This is a repository for all cool scientific discussion and fascination. Scientific facts, theories, and overall cool scientific stuff that you'd like to share with others. Stuff that makes you smile and wonder at the amazing shit going on around us, that most people don't notice.

Post pictures, vidoes, stories, or links. Ask questions. Share science.

This is in support of the Penny 4 NASA project. If you enjoy anything you learned from this thread, consider making a donation and signing the petition.

http://www.penny4nasa.org/

Why should I care?:

I BELIEVE THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR AND HULK HOGAN, WITH THEIR POWERS COMBINED, COULD PICK UP MOUNT EVEREST AND HURL IT INTO THE AIR WHERE IT WOULD STAY STAY FOR GENERATIONS OF LITTLE HULKAMANIACS TO ENJOY, BROTHER!

Nope.

Strong force is what is responsible for holding the nuclei of atoms together. It's very important on a micro scale. Essentially, it's the glue of the universe holding everything together. It's the strongest of the 4 forces by far. But it only has a very small radius of interaction. Like only on the subatomic level.

Weak force is responsible for radioactive decay. That's what allows stars like the sun to produce energy. It's the force that changes a neutron in an atom to a proton and electron, which causes an energy release. That energy fuels the entire universe.

Ironically, gravity is actually the weakest of all 4 forces. But it has an added advantage in that it interacts across very vast distances. As opposed to the other forces which interact on a much smaller scale. So gravity is very important because all the bodies in the universe are affected by it. It's the force that's most evident.

Anyway, I hope that explains it a little better...

Hmmm so essentially we're boned unless our orbit changes?

What the hell are you talking about bud? Boned why?

If our orbit changes more than it normally does, then we're really boned. We don't want that happening at all. Even a slight change in Earth's gravity would be really bad for all us creatures living here. Our bodies are finely tuned to the exact amount of gravity we're used to here on Earth. If that changes, our bodies won't be able to cope. Our internal organs are accustomed to our gravity, and without it our body starts to break down. Without the exact amount of gravity we're used to, we'd be unable to do all sorts of things. Like farting, burping, shitting, pissing, digestion, etc. All the fluids in your body would start migrating to your upper body, causing dehydration and eventual death. Your muscles need gravity to work against, and without it all your muscles would atrophy. The fluid in your ear wouldn't provide equilibrium to your body without gravity, so you'd be in a constant state of dizziness and loss of balance.

Pretty much the worst thing ever.

Scientist Mohamed Babu from Mysore, India captured beautiful photos of these translucent ants eating a specially colored liquid sugar. Some of the ants would even move between the food resulting in new color combinations in their stomachs.
