What If You Lit a Match on Jupiter?



Atlas VPN 3-year offer with a 86% discount;

Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System. It’s 300 times more massive than Earth. But it’s less dense than our home. Uh-oh. Looks like somebody left the gas running on Jupiter. Don’t do anything stupid, like lighting a humongous match. What would a match need to be made of to ignite the gas giant? How big would it have to be? And how much damage would this explosion do to our Solar System? Would phosphorous be enough to cause an explosion on Jupiter?

What If You Traveled to the Hell Planet?



We visit a lot of planets here on WHAT IF, but K2-141b is the most extreme one yet. Are you ready to jump on board this one-way space shuttle? If you’d rather stay safely Earthbound, I want you to take a look up at the night sky and find the constellation of Aquarius. Right there. Now imagine traveling 202 light-years in that direction, and that’s where you’d find the hell planet. What’s that stuff falling from the sky? Why is this planet so different from Earth? How did it get that name?

What If You Got Infected by an Alien Parasite?



What do you get when you take an alien parasite and smush it together with a human being? Would you get to become a supercharged, head-eating anti hero like Venom? Or would you die a slow and painful death? Today, you’re getting infected with your very own alien parasite. How would it mess with your brain? Would you lose control of your body? And, what’s it like to share a body with Venom?

क्या हो अगर गॉडज़िला वास्तव में हो | What If Godzilla Was Real?

क्या हो अगर गॉडज़िला वास्तव में हो | What If Godzilla Was Real?

ये बड़ा है, डरावना है, और इसे तबाही लाने में मज़ा आता है। मिलिए शैतानों के राजा-गॉडज़िला से। क्या आपको लगता है आपका साल अच्छा नहीं जा रहा? कैसा रहेगा अगर हम अपने मुंह से रेडिएशन निकालने वाले सोए हुए बड़े दानव को जगा दें? क्या होगा अगर गॉडज़िला जाग उठे? क्या गॉडज़िला जैसा कोई जीव वाकई हो सकता है? और, हम इसका सामना कैसे करेंगे?

क्या हो अगर एक मिनी-डॉक्यूमेंट्री वेब श्रृंखला है जो आपको काल्पनिक दुनिया और संभावनाओं के माध्यम से एक महाकाव्य यात्रा पर ले जाती है। हमें एक काल्पनिक साहसिक कार्य में शामिल करें – वैज्ञानिक सिद्धांत में आधारित – समय, स्थान और संयोग के माध्यम से, जैसा कि हम पूछते हैं कि क्या हमारे अस्तित्व के कुछ सबसे मौलिक पहलू अलग थे।

What If We Settled on an Exoplanet?

Are you looking for a change of scenery? Are you tired of boring old Earth?
How would you like a new home away from home? Really far away from home. Like outside our Solar System far. What exoplanet would suit us best? Are there any pros? And more importantly, what are the cons?

क्या हो अगर हम पानी के अंदर सांस ले सकें | What if we could breathe underwater?

क्या हो अगर हम पानी के अंदर सांस ले सकें | What if we could breathe underwater?

क्या हो अगर इंसानों के पास गिल्स हों और वो मछलियों की तरह सांस ले सकें? ज़रा सोचिए, आप डॉल्फिन और समुद्री कछुओं के साथ पानी में जब तक चाहें तब तक तैर पाएं। क्या पानी के अंदर सांस ले पाने का मतलब ये होगा कि हम धरती के सारे पानी तक पहुंच बना सकते हैं? क्या हम मैदानों का ये जीवन छोड़ कर पानी के अंदर घर बना लेंगे? शायद हम हमारे सागरों में मौजूद प्रदूषण को देखें और उसे साफ कर पाएं?

क्या हो अगर एक मिनी-डॉक्यूमेंट्री वेब श्रृंखला है जो आपको काल्पनिक दुनिया और संभावनाओं के माध्यम से एक महाकाव्य यात्रा पर ले जाती है। हमें एक काल्पनिक साहसिक कार्य में शामिल करें – वैज्ञानिक सिद्धांत में आधारित – समय, स्थान और संयोग के माध्यम से, जैसा कि हम पूछते हैं कि क्या हमारे अस्तित्व के कुछ सबसे मौलिक पहलू अलग थे।

What Lies Beyond Our Solar System?

What Lies Beyond Our Solar System?

From the planets, to the stars, to the systems, to the great unknown of the universe, join us as we explore what lies beyond our solar system!

8. The Scope Of Our Own Solar System
Before we look beyond it, let’s take stock of our own solar system and what it all is like. There are 8 definitive planets (and more than that if you count Dwarf Planets like Pluto), we have one star, The Sun, that we orbit around, and within the confines of our system are asteroid belts, various rocks of various sizes, tons of solar rays and radiation, and a whole lot more.
Just in our solar system there is a LOT of stuff to explore. Which is sometimes hard to find because the length of our solar system is about 287.46 billion kilometers long. And even in the year 2020 we’re STILL finding out things about our solar system that are shocking and surprising. But of course, the main goal of humanity as a whole is to do what many have thought is unthinkable. To go BEYOND our solar system and to not just see it, but explore it, and live upon it. To truly become a species that is intergalactic instead of just living in one very small part of the universe.
7. What Lies Immediately Beyond Our Solar System
So let’s posit for a moment that you are able to go and get out of the reach of our solar system. Behind the Kuiper Belt, beyond the Heliosphere, what are you going to find when you reach that edge beyond? What will you see? What will you experience?
The honest and very simple answer…is nothing. Because you’ll be in what is known as Intergalactic Space. Or, the space between galaxies and systems. But to be clear, just because you don’t see anything, doesn’t mean that nothing is there.
“If you took a cubic meter, there would be less than one atom in it,” Michael Shull, an astronomer at the University of Colorado Boulder, told Live Science. “But when you add it all up, it’s somewhere between 50 and 80% of all the ordinary matter out there.”
Scientists are honestly deeply interested in this matter, or “Intergalactic Medium” because of how they feel it forms and even replenishes certain systems via the gas that it provides. The reason for this is that the medium is mostly hot, ionized hydrogen (hydrogen that has lost its electron) with bits of heavier elements such as carbon, oxygen and silicon thrown in. While these elements typically don’t glow bright enough to be seen directly, scientists know they’re there because of the signature they leave on light that passes by.
“IGM is the gas that feeds star formation in galaxies,” Shull said. “If we didn’t still have gas falling in, being pulled in by gravity, star formation would slowly grind to a halt as the gas [in the galaxy] gets used up.”
But because of its small numbers, when you’re floating through space, you’re almost literally floating through empty space. Which is why many note that all the planets and stars and celestial objects only fill up about 5% of the known universe. Everything else is minor matter, Dark Energy and Dark Matter.
6. Systems Beyond Our Own
Ok, so let’s say that you are able to reach another system. What would it be like? Well, that would depend on what you land upon.
Because there are at least 100 billion stars in the Milky Way, a spiral galaxy about 100,000 light-years across. The stars are arranged in a pinwheel pattern with four major arms, and we live in one of them, about two-thirds of the way outward from the center. Most of the stars in our galaxy are thought to host their own families of planets. Thousands of these extrasolar planets (or exoplanets) have been discovered so far, with thousands more candidates detected and awaiting confirmation. Many of these newly discovered planetary systems are quite different from our own.
In fact, part of the fun of astronomy in the eyes of many is going and seeing if you can indeed find a new planet, or star that hadn’t been noticed before, and seeing what details you notice about it. In fact, various agencies from NASA to the ESA and more have made their own satellites and probes and such that they’ve launched into space or our atmosphere to try and get better looks at planets and stars and see what we can find.
Some of the highlights for sure are many planets that are “Earth-Like” in structure or form or shape. Numerous kinds of stars from dwarf stars to binary stars, to Pulsars, Supernovas and more. They’ve found black holes at the center of most galaxies, and that’s still only scratching the surface of things.

What If Every Satellite Fell to Earth?

What If Every Satellite Fell to Earth?

Thousands of satellites and pieces of debris currently orbit our Earth. They provide us with television, internet, and communications. But what if all these satellites suddenly went offline? And then came crashing down to Earth? What would a crashing satellite do to the Earth? How many satellites would come falling down?
