  • Our planet is full of true natural wonders. Volcanoes, waterfalls, forests, oases and rocky caves are among the most outstanding. Regarding relief, without a doubt, the mountain ranges steal all the attention and with exponents of a magnitude as great as their beauty and interest (as the Andes Mountain Range, the Himalayas or the Alps) we do not stop to marvel at these magnificent monuments thousands of kilometers long.
Orogeny is the process through which mountains and mountain ranges are formed or rejuvenated through the action of Earth's tectonic plates and their movements.
Intercontinental Cordilleras: arise when two tectonic plates collide. An example of this is the Himalayas, formed from the clash of the Indica and Eurasian tectonic plates 50 million years ago.

  • Did you know that any object with mass has the potential to become a black hole? This idea is most effectively explained with a brief discussion of what is known as a ‘Schwarzschild radius’.
When a non-rotating and electrically neutral body (a star) suffers complete gravitational collapse, it will eventually collapse to a size in which its own gravitational pull is great enough to retain light itself. This critical “size” is what is known as the Schwarzschild radius. Theoretically, ANY mass can become a black hole if it collapses to the Schwarzschild radius. Using a very simple equation, one can determine what this radius would be for any object of mass. A few theoretical examples may facilitate understanding. A mass similar to that of Mt. Everest would have a Schwarzschild radius of approx. 3.0e-13 meters, which is smaller than the size of a single atom. Planet Earth has a critical radius that is approx. the size of a peanut. If collapsed to these sizes, both objects would theoretically have an inevitable in-falling of matter and create an infinite curvature in space-time.

What do you think?👇
It's great to see @JeffBezos so involved in space. We need them.

  • Have you met our resident 🐝 hobbyist beekeeper? He loves it 💗 he’s only 2.5yrs old. 
Meet Kai 👨‍🚀 what does he remind you of? 🙈
