Sirius is the brightest star in Earth's night sky. It is also known as the Dog Star, since is part of the constellation Canis Major, from which derives the name of the star. Curious fact: if Sirius was located right next to our Sun, it would shine more than 20 times the Sun does.
The moment you grab your earphones to hear some music and Kyoka Jiro's character springs to your mind as if out of nowhere is also the moment you get even more conscious of how much of a diehard BnHA fan you are.
It's a real treat to learn how many progresses astronomers are making. Black Holes may be orbited by molecules we were unknowing of. This could help unravel the mysteries of dark matter and space-time's nature.
In 1 year the Webb Telescope will be launched. It will cover longer wavelenghts than Hubble and look way back in time when the first galaxies formed to search for dark matter and learn more about dark energy.
Warp drives and spatial distortions are such enthralling concepts. I have been a major Star Trek fan for years, and even in a relativistic Universe like ours, it was never entirely debunked by the scientific community how a spacecraft could reach FTL speeds as long as it could move space-time instead of actually moving through it. That would require astronomical amounts of energy, yet time dilation would not apply.
A wish of mine concerning the Final War is for Franky to actually take on Lucci. That day Lucci fodderized him in Enies Lobby is still etched in my memory. I hope he will show him how imposing a mix between engineering skills and ironclad will can prove, and blast him out of the equation.
Pac-Man World (PS1) and Spyro 1 (PS1) were the first video games I ever played. It has been 20+ years and I'm still such an inveterate fan of both franchises. I will never forget those idyllic moments, that much is certain.
A common misconception regarding AI is the emphasis of job losses caused by its restless rise. It's estimated that many new jobs will emerge and not as many will fade.
Another one concerns the eventual dangerous outcomes of AI for society. As long as the algorithms will be built properly there won't be much to be worried about. AI will positively impact people, improving productivity, job safety and healthcare.
It's so mind blowing to think that the estimated amount of atoms in the observable universe is 10^78 to 10^82, and just in a single human body the estimation happens to be 7×10^27. This gives off the idea of how big we are in comparison to a fundamental constituent of matter which is the atom. Sadly, we also realize how the gap lying between a single atom and us is smaller than the one between us and the universe.
