Inventory of the Universe


 1 #InventorySpace

NASA’s dark-energy probe faces cost crisis http://buff.ly/2rOBGGH One of the fundamental enigmas of #space along with dark matter. #Darkenergy occupies about 68% of the visible universe and dark matter another 27% for a total of 95% of undetected, hypothesized energy … for the time being. It is this energy that powers our expanding universe. The remaining 5% is what we call ‘matter’ that may be experienced in everyday life. The simplest way of expressing it is that this matter includes atoms of any sort. Experimental science is based on that 5% of measurable matter. #theExplanation #Inventoryspace

Planets in other star systems fit a puzzling pattern http://buff.ly/2uFnlhv The mysteries of #outer #space and the #Universe. Can we really build #theories on the #spacecraft #Kepler’s limited observations? “That’s the question that keeps me and many other people up at night!” says #Weiss a scientist at the University of Montreal. It’s massive out there and puny #humankind has barely touched the surface. Are we in awe? #theExplanation #InventorySpace

Amazing Pictures From 20 Years Of Nonstop Robots On Mars http://buff.ly/2eXnHdo There are places named Garden City and Gale Crater … they may sound exotic and certainly are beautiful images but with #sand #dunes and #craters being the main #landscape features would you really want to live on #Mars? #theExplanation #InventorySpace

Stars Caught Wrinkling Spacetime? Get the Facts. https://buff.ly/2wJSQZq The technical stuff is well beyond me and, probably, you. However the enormity of #stars, #neutrons and gravitational waves should help us realize our position in the #Universe. #Humankind is at the same time ‘nothing’ and ‘everything’. We are insignificant on a universal scale but so significant that we can #contemplate both the Universe and ourselves. Why is this so? #theExplanation #InventorySpace

Storm of Strange Radio Bursts Emerges From Deep Space https://buff.ly/2wOTzrm What’s interesting about such stories is the magnitude of what we’re dealing with. #Hurricane #Irma is a match stick by comparison. One #scientist said about the Bursts: That’s a stupendous amount of #energy being emitted. Does #humanity realize how little it is, how miniscule it is in relation to #outerspace? Isn’t it time to think about it more profoundly? #theExplanation #InventorySpace

Spider Catches Prey by Shooting Webs http://buff.ly/2s66q7G Other ways to use silk to catch your meal. Making a web and waiting for a catch is passive. The ground spider has a better way. It attacks and entangles its prey in silk. Why would it develop such a method? #theExplanation #InventoryFauna

Go, Baby! These Animal Babies Grow Up Without Any Help from Parents https://buff.ly/2wxaw5W #Babies, #adults, #parents, #parenting. Are such terms appropriate when it comes to #animals. #Human parenting is an 18 year… or so adventure and it is so much more than taking care of initial physical needs and some #survival training. Ever wondered why every single human need so much parenting while some animals don’t need any at all? #theExplanation #InventoryFauna

Dogs Have Feelings—Here’s How We Know https://buff.ly/2wyrrW8 Yes, they do. Are animal #psychologists trying to raise #animals to #human #sentience–experience #sensations?

In fact there are many systems in a foetus that are don’t exist after birth. The story of life-giving development and birth should tell us something. #theExplanation #InventoryLife


8 #InventoryHumanBody

Hormones, brain and behaviour, a not-so-simple story http://buff.ly/2rYh7Fh Variety of interactions, not just their number are important: hormones -> body, body -> sensation in mother’s brain, brain -> behaviour, mother’s behaviour -> pup’s sensation, sensation -> cell growth. One of the basics of #theExplanation is the concept of #interconnectivity. Everything in the #universe is connected and forms coherent completeness. The question is not only how it got that way, but WHY is it that way? #theExplanation #InventoryBody

Who Gives a Dog a Command and How It Is Given Matters https://buff.ly/2ugnCV2 It’s about the effects of you personal #voice. #Human voices differ from one another in a lot of ways. Each voice has a specific pitch, a different set of #harmonics, different timings when producing words or parts of #words, and these may be modified by #accents, emphasis and even emotional tone. #theExplanation #InventoryBody

Audit of the Universe

Orbiting ‘space nation’ data centre could avoid all Earthly laws https://buff.ly/2vJHHmA #Laws control #international waters but not so ‘space’. It’s a ‘free-for-all’ and some of taking advantage of this vacuum. Who does #space belong to? #theExplanation #AuditSpaceStrange

3 #AuditWater

Turning point: Reef inspector http://buff.ly/2st9pXf Coral Reef endangerment due to bleaching is becoming an ecological disaster. The elephant in the room is climate change causing the water to heat up. Also, with increased seaside tourism, tons of sunscreen lotion with nonbiodegradable elements wash into the sea and affect the algae food supply causing the coral to starve and turn white … hence the name: coral bleaching. #theExplanation #AuditWater

The fight to save thousands of lives with sea-floor sensors http://buff.ly/2v6vrgT #Technology to detect and transmit #underwater land movement has made incredible progress. However, consider a massive ocean-floor fault just 50km from a densely populated shoreline. We don’t know when, we’re waiting but this is much bigger than #sensors. #theExplanation #AuditWater

Air guns used in offshore oil exploration can kill tiny marine life http://buff.ly/2vtw3N5 #zooplankton killed off, commercial #fish species endangered. Maybe we need #oil but we also need fish.

5 #AuditFlora

Biodiversity moves beyond counting species http://buff.ly/2rRTFMD Another breakthrough, #biodiversity is even more than ‘richness of traits’. It is interconnectivity at the highest level. You can generally read a word by recognizing its consonants but adding some, most or all of the vowels makes it complete. Similarly with biodiversity. Have biologists reached the stage where they can identify all the ‘traits’ in a given species? Certainly there are ‘lesser influences’ but #ecology is the interconnectivity of the whole, all the various elements in an ecosystem. #theExplanation #AuditFlora

Brain images display the beauty and complexity of #consciousness http://buff.ly/2sXbjwv Extremely intricate, these images ‘only’ display little parts of the brain. It’s impossible to imagine the complexity of all these ‘pieces’ working together instantaneously and continually to oversee the life of each one of us.
