People are so similar yet so different. See how you can be a better person than you were yesterday and develop a perspective that helps you be who you want to be. Check out this post:
You might have seen movies showing houses flying with balloons. But have you seen houses sinking into the ground. Sinkholes are scary natural depressions that can swallow cars, humans and even houses. It could happen near a running water source or even at high or dry places. Sinkholes can occur due to formation of voids inside the ground. These voids could be formed due to the following reasons:
- Ground water could dissolve carbonates from the soil.
- Chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks.
- Collapse of abandoned mines.
These sinkholes could be of diameter ranging from 1 m to 600 m. The recent sinkhole was witnessed in Florida where portion of a central Florida resort villa and the Summer Bay Resort partially collapsed into a sinkhole on 12th August, 2013. The hole was 60 ft wide and occurred overnight causing severe damage to three buildings which had already been evacuated. Similar cases were witnessed in Hoboken, Washington, Los Angeles, Montreal, Beijing etc. Have a look of these scary sinkholes!
Imagine a land where you sleep at one place and wake up to find yourself at a different place without even noticing that you moved! What’ll you call this place? Enchanted? What if such a place exists on our earth? To your surprise it exists. Though this is not as fast as you might imagine and it takes long time for moving but still is surprising to see the tracks that are made by such movements.
Racetrack Playa at the Death Valley in California, is one such place where you’ll find long tracks of moving stones but you’ll never find a stone really moving. The stones called sailing stones weighing from a few hundreds of grams to a few hundreds of kilograms inscribe visible tracks while sailing on the Playa surface. Nobody has actually seen these stones in motion but these tracks have been formed without any human or animal intervention. Have a look at these.
The tracks are of different lengths, and directions. Some are short while others are as long as 1500 feet. Some are straight while some show great bends and changes in direction. It is quite mysterious to think that nobody has seen these stones in motion but the long tracks show their movements. How do we explain this?
Is it really enchanted or is there a scientific explanation for this? There are many theories. Some say it could be because of the gravity. But this theory was discarded as many stones have shown tracks to have climbed uphill. Some have suggested of presence of an underground lake beneath the Playa, causing all these movements. While some geologists suggest that it is a rare combination of rain and water that is causing these stones to move.
Till now none of the theories have been found to fully explain the phenomenon. So you’re free to give your own hypothesis for the same. Please comment your hypothesis…
We have always imagined of a flying car but can we really have flying cars in future? If yes, then when? Future is closer than you think! What if I say we have a flying car we have always imagined? First we must understand what’s the difficulty in making a flying car.
The main problem with a flying car is that it should be able to take off vertically with balance, and it should be compact with light, small but efficient and powerful engine. It should be able to fly with speeds like planes and walk like normal cars on road. Paul Moller an engineer put 75 million Dollars to make his dream of flying cars real. He modified smaller engines called Wankel, to power four propellers that navigates the car in all directions and helped the car take off vertically. He developed highly complex software to maintain balance when taking off vertically.
Moller M400 Skycar is what he names his creation – A car that can fly! He expects that in next 20 years we’ll be having formal air vehicles that could be used by police, ambulance and common people. So we can hope to see cars flying in air in the coming years!

Have you witnessed the true beauty of nature. Well its time to have a look and get mesmerized at the beauty of Auroras.
The aurora borealis (the Northern Lights) and the aurora australis (the Southern Lights) have always fascinated mankind, and people even travel thousands of miles just to see the brilliant light shows in the earth’s atmosphere. The auroras, both surrounding the north magnetic pole and south magnetic pole occur when highly charged electrons from the solar wind interact with elements in the earth’s atmosphere. Solar winds stream away from the sun at speeds of about 1 million miles per hour. When they reach the earth, some 40 hours after leaving the sun, they follow the lines of magnetic force generated by the earth’s core and flow through the magnetosphere, a teardrop-shaped area of highly charged electrical and magnetic fields.
Even denied of existence, Area 51 remains the most popular and mysterious air base of US. There are rumors about Alien spacecrafts being reverse engineered and implemented in US air-crafts. People have seen unidentified flying objects near the place, and most people’s description of the UFOs are very similar. What is area 51? Where is it? Why is it so heavily guarded?
There are also rumors that real aliens crash landed here and their bodies are still here!
“That’s one small step for (a) man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong when he first landed on moon. But did he really land on moon? Have humans really touched the surface of moon? If you think yes, you must think again!
Can Apollo missions be hoax? If yes, what about the photos of Neil Armstrong’s step on moon? Where is the truth? And why should a false moon landing be done at the first place?
I’ll give facts and you decide for yourself!!

Electric cars can be a good option. But are they powerful enough to satisfy our daily needs & what about the looks? How far can the vehicle go in one charge? Find out yourself as Tesla motors have done a great job making these awesome cars! Just have a look!
