Climate change, or global warming is a real threat to the planet we live on. The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) have been monitoring the rise of greenhouse gases, that includes CO2, Methane and Nitrous Oxide, and they claim that since 1990 the amount of gases in our atmosphere have been steadily rising above average every … Continue reading Religion and Climate Change Denial
I've recently covered the the first human in space and then the the first humans to visit the Moon, but there's so much more history to humanities' journey into space, and without a doubt, humanities future will be a journey into depths of space we've only ever dreamed about. I'm convinced that beyond our lifetimes, … Continue reading The Martians
The Soviet Cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, may have beaten the United States of America into space, but this didn't deter NASA, as they clearly had their sights set on landing a module on the Moon. Eight years after Yuri's history making voyage into space, the United States of America landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on … Continue reading The Eagle has landed
On the 12th April, 1961, just 58 years ago, the Soviet Union CCCP (Союз Советских Социалистических Республик) launched Vostok 1 (Восто́к 1) into space from Baikonur Cosmodrome (Космодро́м Байкону́р), in southern Kazakhstan (Республика Казахстан) with just one passenger, the Cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin (Ю́рий Алексе́евич Гага́рин).

Most life forms consist of twenty different types of amino acids, and add to that twenty tRNA molecules, who link to the correct amino acid with help from enzymes. Scientists view this process as a molecular computer, whereas it translates the correct amino … Continue reading The Tree of Life
