Could we stop an asteroid on a collision course for Earth?
All Time-lapse sequences were taken by the astronaunts onboard the International Space Station (ISS).
All footage has been color graded, denoised, deflickered, slowed down and stabilized.
e prolific Asimov also wrote mysteries and fantasy, as well as much non-fiction. Most of his popular science books explain scientific concepts in a historical way, going as far back as possible to a time when the science in question was at its simplest stage. He often provides nationalities, birth dates, and death dates for the scientists he mentions, as well as etymologies and pronunciation guides for technical terms. Examples include Guide to Science, the three volume set Understanding Physics, Asimov's Chronology of Science and Discovery, as well as works on astronomy, mathematics, the Bible, William Shakespeare's writing and chemistry.
Asimov was a long-time member and Vice President of Mensa International, albeit reluctantly; he described some members of that organization as "brain-proud and aggressive about their IQs." He took more joy in being president of the American Humanist Association. The asteroid 5020 Asimov, a crater on the planet Mars, a Brooklyn, New York elementary school, and one Isaac Asimov literary award are named in his honor. -

An episode of Disneyland which aired on December 4, 1957. It was directed by Ward Kimball and narrated by Paul Frees. This episode discusses the possibility of life on other planets, especially Mars. It begins with an introduction of Walt Disney and his robot friend Garco, who provide a brief overview. It continues with an animated presentation about mankind seeking to understand the world in which he lives, first noticing patterns in the stars, and developing certain beliefs regarding the celestial bodies. Theories from scientists and philosophers are discussed, including Ptolemy's inaccurate, but formerly-accepted theories, as well as those of Copernicus. Life on other planets is considered, soon focusing on Mars. Ideas from science-fiction authors H.G. Wells and Edgar Rice Burroughs are brought to life with more colorful animation. Pulp science fiction comics of the time are parodied in the same straightforward tone as everything else (this segment features Kimball's comic tone and a cameo appearance by Donald Duck).
Jack Schmitt throws his geology hammer in the 1/6 lunar gravity before they get back inside the lunar lander.
Hammer can be seen going nearly strait up above Jack and then falls off to the left and descends behind the LM.
The rover is parked at the VIP site behind the lunar module. Jack emerges as a small figure, 145 meters away, to the right of the lunar module. He pleads with Gene to let him throw his geology hammer. The commander concedes his permission and warns him not to hit the lunar module or the ALSEP. Jack flings it into the air and careful observation of the clip reveals the spinning hammer in flight, barely visible against the mountain in the background, and then against the black sky. Jack is thrilled with the long flight of the hammer and walks back to the lunar module.
Earlier today, mission specialists with NASA's Mars Science Laboratory announced that they have found, for the first time, evidence of an ancient environment on Mars that could have sustained life. Hank tells us the specifics in this very special, super-exciting episode of SciShow News.
American Museum of Natural History researchers detected the chemical composition of 4 previously known planets around star HR 8799 (128 light years away), and found them to be extremely different from all the other known planets in the Universe.

Segment of Cosmic Quandaries Dr. DeGrasse Tyson talked about Alien Life in a simple but informative way. And makes many good points and leaves you with something to think about.
The Good Stuff asks Bill Nye about the beginning of it all.
On Feb. 11, 2010, NASA launched an unprecedented solar observatory into space. The Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) flew up on an Atlas V rocket, carrying instruments that scientists hoped would revolutionize observations of the sun. If all went according to plan, SDO would provide incredibly high-resolution data of the entire solar disk almost as quickly as once a second.
When the science team released its first images in April of 2010, SDO's data exceeded everyone's hopes and expectations, providing stunningly detailed views of the sun. In the three years since then, SDO's images have continued to show breathtaking pictures and movies of eruptive events on the sun. Such imagery is more than just pretty, they are the very data that scientists study. By highlighting different wavelengths of light, scientists can track how material on the sun moves. Such movement, in turn, holds clues as to what causes these giant explosions, which, when Earth-directed, can disrupt technology in space.
With its infrared sensors, the Herschel telescope will let humans see objects in the universe so cold and faint they emit no visible light.

A meteorite shot across the sky and exploded over central Russia on Friday, sending fireballs crashing to Earth, shattering windows and damaging buildings.
I saw this and i thought "Fart noises" - So here you go.. I am working on my EP an i'll be posting another mix shortly :)
