  1. If a giant needle-shaped mass of tungsten carbide (9540km in length, 3567km in width, moving at 99% of light speed) collided with earth, pointy end first, at the north pole, precisely what would happen to the earth, both geologically, meteorologically, and ecologically? Additionally, how would the results differ if the object collided at, say, the south pole, or the peak of the mid-Atlantic ridge?
  2. Picture this. Earth is forming. gasses and heat are busy making our oceans and a crust is forming where gravity is at its least resistance, forming one giant land mass. Call this land Gondwana, Pangaea or whatever you like. The point is it was all connected at one point and creatures could roam as they pleased. A meteor ruins it for everyone, spinning the planets crust in all logical directions. this rips the earth apart quickly, creating the pacific ocean floor and tectonic plates in the process. Such an impact and force causes the land to behave in a liquid like manor. The ocean floors
  3. Please do not steal my idea I am about to share with you. I am only 13 years old. We could build a supercomputer ( or a computer that can handle the amount of processing power needed for this ) that could calculate orbits, planets, how the gravity affects other objects, etc. Basically we input all known events I.E. big bang theory, dinosaurs, extinction, protoplanet hits protoearth and creates moon, Jesus is born, planetary geology, heat, radiation, GRB, life as we know it, and the list goes on and on. We can then make a massive and highly intelligent A.I. that is able to calculate things that
  4. Hey everybody, newbie here. I am going on 38 and have a degree in IT back in 2009, I just lost my only job in the IT field and cant find anything else. I am having my mid-life crisis and I am totally lost and don't know what to do. I am going to get my CDL and drive a big rig. I leave this weekend for a CDL training which. I always liked geology and enjoy watching TV shows/documentary about it. I am a nerd, geek and movie enthusiast. I am thinking about going back to college for geology but just scared too because of money and not having a full time job for 4 years. I have some money saved
  5. I am currently looking to participate in a competition much like Science Bowl, but for college students. The reason for the emphasis is because I have searched the web and found several college LEVEL comps for high schoolers. I have participated in Science Bowl and even won regionals back in 2013, but have found nothing for college students that was similar. I am looking for something with a few of the following: Team sport Preferably buzzers as opposed to an exam A good prize (none of this "bragging rights" stuff) I.e. Money, a trophy, a vacation etc Must have content relating to more than
  6. No, it's not an alien spacecraft, just as usual, an attempt to translate for "popular science" via simplification that let's folks misinterpret what's already a pretty cool discovery: This of course builds on the discovery a few years ago that the Moon still has a molten core. We may go to the moon, but that's not very far. The greatest distance we have to cover still lies within us, :phones: Buffy
