The modern myths: Big Bang Theory

We live in the most amazing universe possible if not the best one. We don't even need to fantasize or devise incredible stories about reality to ignite our fancy. The situation, so far, looks like created by the imaginative pen of a talented science fiction writer. What we know is that a microscopic (I don't know if there is a word coined for such a small thing compared with the sizes of the known Universe) blue bubble - abundant with lifeforms, have somehow appeared after an immeasurable explosion followed by the unbelievable stream of circumstances, which have started from nowhere and have lasted around 13.77 billion years until now. Our planet is supposed to be 4.54 billion years old, so there was a lot of party going on here even before the existence of the only planet with life that we know for the moment. The crude material composing Earth is similar to the other known planets – rocks, metals, gases, and if you had enough chance - water. Using that, Nature made complex organisms like us, and we used the raw elements in such a way that we have access to toasters and computers in our houses. Well, let's imagine that nobody has ever heard of such events, does it sounds like a plausible story? However, the most unbelievable thing is not the plausibility of all the cosmological myths and theories but the fact that anything exists at all. That is the biggest mystery itself. To try to understand this is the most fascinating and exciting challenge in front of humankind. Here lie down the roots of philosophy, science, and knowledge in general. The greatest journey ever taken. It is so infinite and profound that as Albert Einstein once said:


"There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."


So, let free your curiosity and you won't ever be bored of daily life again. It's all miracle. Or maybe you chose the first option? 

Enjoy your Friday!

Largest sample of galaxies surveyed over an enormous piece of the sky

New results from the Dark Energy Survey, or DES, use the largest-ever sample of galaxies over an enormous piece of the sky to produce the most precise measurements of the universe's composition and growth to date. Scientists funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation found that the way matter is distributed throughout the universe is consistent with predictions in the standard cosmological model, the best current model of the universe.

Get relaxed - it's time for Friday Science Jokes

An unknown author once said: 

"Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused". 

We will rephrase him as follows - 

"Blessed are they who can laugh at science jokes, for then, they can laugh at almolst anything".

Bioeconomy

A circular bioeconomy – which turns renewable biological resources and waste streams into new products – is at the heart of the EU's efforts to slash its carbon emissions while also maintaining economic growth. But what does a bioeconomy look like and how do we get there?

Horizon Magazine asked five young experts and activists what the bioeconomy means to them – and what needs to happen for it to become a reality.

Centuries-old, the summer residence of the Habsburgs is still one of the most magnetic views in the Austrian capital. Nowadays all of us can enter the imperial world and walk the footsteps of the legendary inhabitants of the palace.
