Re: Re: Why do you give back?
I think this comes to all people at some time. However, the opportunity cannot always be realised. Even a little give back practised as many times as someone can has a positive snowball effect. Re inforcing the ideal in large or small actions is a positive human attribute that I believe ALL mankind can and should practice at some time in their lives. I do it for my community as a volunteer fire fighter and I believe I should do it more at other levels.
Last year i started reversing my key life anniversary dates. Instead of recieving on those days I now give to those I think need help. I should have done this a long time ago. Thanks to Richard and the many others who have demonstrated that it also something they see as a responsibilty also.
SpaceX plans to launch about 12,000 internet-providing satellites into orbit over the next six years.
- SpaceX plans to launch 1,600 satellites over the next few years, and to complete its full network over the next six.
- Blanketing the globe with wireless internet-providing satellites could have big implications for financial institutions and people in rural areas.
- Some are concerned about the proliferation of space debris in Earth's orbit.
Protected animals are feared to be headed for the black market.
Here's the science of black holes, from supermassive monsters to ones the size of ping-pong balls.
- There's more than one way to make a black hole, says NASA's Michelle Thaller. They're not always formed from dead stars. For example, there are teeny tiny black holes all around us, the result of high-energy cosmic rays slamming into our atmosphere with enough force to cram matter together so densely that no light can escape.
- CERN is trying to create artificial black holes right now, but don't worry, it's not dangerous. Scientists there are attempting to smash two particles together with such intensity that it creates a black hole that would live for just a millionth of a second.
- Thaller uses a brilliant analogy involving a rubber sheet, a marble, and an elephant to explain why different black holes have varying densities. Watch and learn!
- Bonus fact: If the Earth became a black hole, it would be crushed to the size of a ping-pong ball.
