Science wisdom. It's so satisfying.

Now crack your brain on these things.

SUPERNOVAS

Aka suns that turn into black holes


A star that's up to 200-ish times as HUGE as our sun exploded into a supernova. Its name is SN 2006gy (catchy!), and it's 240 million light years away.

THE SHAPE OF THE UNIVERSE

Aka is it a sphere, does it look like a saddle, or is it flat and infinite? It's bigger than what we see, which is ALREADY a lot.

All of our images of the observable universe look like we're in the middle, but we aren't. Matter of possible-fact, there probably ISN'T a middle.

Via Space.com:

According to NASA, scientists know that the universe is flat with only about a 0.4 percent margin of error (as of 2013). A flat universe is an infinite universe; thus the size of the universe is infinite.
THE MULTIVERSE

Aka maybe our universe isn't even the only one!

Infinite universes, bubble universes, parallel universes, daughter universes, mathematical universes. They could ALL be possible. If infinity wasn't enough for you, think about the multiverse. I can't even begin to wrap my mind around this stuff, so I'm just going to contemplate the vastness.

Now take 30 more seconds.

Oh, to be loved with this much enthusiasm! The sheer adoration on his face. What a lucky little sister.

2. Teens raise thousands for their senior trip, then donate it to their community instead.

When it came time for Islesboro Central School's Class of 2021 to pick the destination for their senior class trip, the students began eyeing a trip to Greece or maybe even South Korea. But in the end, they decided to donate $5,000 they'd raised for the trip to help out their community members struggling in the wake of the pandemic instead.
