How It Works: Inside Look at a B-25 Mitchell Aircraft Gyroscope

Today, Eric is back in the workshop but this time not with another build. Instead, he will be opening up and inspecting the internal mechanisms of a B-25 Mitchell Aircraft Gyroscope to see how it works.

धरती से दूर क्यों हो रहे हैं चंदा मामा? Is Moon going away from earth?

धरती से दूर क्यों हो रहे हैं चंदा मामा? Is Moon going away from earth?

British astronomer Edmund Halley said something strange three hundred years ago. When he said that the moon is slowly moving away from the Earth, most people understood that his mind has turned again. But Edmund Haley said this in Hosho-Havas after analyzing the old events of lunar eclipse and solar eclipse and finally in the 1970s, the scientists of the world accepted this fact.

Astronauts from the US and Soviet Russia came to the moon’s surface leaving some mirrors or mirrors. For many years, we have been sending laser rays from the earth towards these mirrors, which reflect from there and return to the earth. This has led astronomers to conclude that the moon went a little farther in 2019 than it was in 2018. How much? We will explain this at the end of this video. But the thing to note is that the speed of this journey of the moon increases slightly more every year.

The novel coronavirus pandemic has officially destabilized our economy, our workplaces, and our homes. That’s the bad news. The worse news? It won’t be the last.

In today’s video I speak with bestselling author David Quammen about zoonotic viruses – viruses that jump from animals to humans. Why they’re so dangerous, why we’ve been seeing more of them in recent years, and why COVID-19 will not be the last one we’ll be dealing with.

You can find David’s book, Spillover: Animal Infections And The Next Human Pandemic here:

Although coal is such an amazing energy source that we’ve kept using it despite the harm it causes, today we may be better poised to stop using it than at any previous time in history.

How to Tell Matter From Antimatter | CP Violation & The Ozma Problem

This video was made with the support of the Heising Simons Foundation.

This video is about the Ozma problem of distinguishing the chirality (ie left-handedness or right-handedness) of matter using weak interaction processes like beta decay (for example in uranium), or neutral kaon/k-meson decay. This is wrapped up in the phenomenon of CP violation, by which charge and parity are both violated by certain weak interaction processes – this enables antimatter to be unambiguously distinguished from matter, and left handed chirality from right handed.
