Japanese researchers on the Antarctic caught a humanoid-looking creature on camera. The creature is 30 meters height, all white with humanoid looking face.  A huge part of the Atlantic researchers share that they have witnessed humanoids with flippers and fins similar looking to a mermaid. In 2007 google blowed the network, releasing a picture of the whale-like creature that appeared in the south regions of Antarctica.

Since then, many versions try to explain the existence of the being. None had succeeded completely. The first 2 pictures are actual footage, the last one is an artists drawing of what it may look like. This beast is called the NINGEN. 

you know what I think?

oh my god best response to my post

HOW THE MOKIN CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO SEE WITH AMAZING CLARITY UNDERWATER

The Mokin are a group in Thailand that are nomadic and have a sea-based culture. 

In the sea there is less light, so usually one’s iris will dilate. But the Mokin have an adaption where instead of dilating, they constrict as much as possible. 

This allows them to see with much better clarity. Recent studies suggest that any child can quickly learn this trick. It exemplifies how well our brain adapts to our environment.

Earth’s water is older than the sun

spaceexp:

Washington DC (SPX) Sep 26, 2014
Water was crucial to the rise of life on Earth and is also important to evaluating the possibility of life on other planets. Identifying the original source of Earth’s water is key to understanding how life-fostering environments come into being and how likely they are to be found elsewhere. New work from a team including Carnegie’s Conel Alexander found that much of our Solar System’s wat

yeah but can the science side of tumblr explain THIS

  This strange humanoid creature evolved from an evolutionary line of ancestors whose heads provided a danger, eventually cutting them from the evolutionary line, leaving only these eyeballhead creatures. And for other evolutionary reasons, they required enormous quantities of processed meat like giant hot dogs, so they evolved giant arms to handle the giant weiners.

In which direction is the cube spinning? Now blink, or look away and look back. Is it still spinning in the same direction?

A Necker Cube is an ambiguous line drawing. Our brain can create different interpretations of it.

Twists of NGC 3718 by Mark Hanson

A careful look at this colorful cosmic snapshot reveals a surprising number of galaxies both near and far toward the constellation Ursa Major.

The most striking is NGC 3718, the warped spiral galaxy near picture center. NGC 3718’s spiral arms look twisted and extended, mottled with young blue star clusters. Drawn out dust lanes obscure its yellowish central regions. A mere 150 thousand light-years to the right is another large spiral galaxy, NGC 3729.

The two are likely interacting gravitationally, accounting for the peculiar appearance of NGC 3718. While this galaxy pair lies about 52 million light-years away, the remarkable Hickson Group 56 can also be seen clustered above NGC 3718, near the top of the frame. Hickson Group 56 consists of five interacting galaxies and lies over 400 million light-years away.

There are over 5000 galaxies in this image down to 24th magnitude.

How The Sun Sees You is a video I thought was definitly worth sharing. 

It highlights the harmful effects of UV radiation and what you can do to stop it. 

I couldn’t fit the entire video in gifs, so be sure to give it the original video a look!

WATCH IT HERE

Wow
