How Firestorms Form



To start using Tab for a Cause, go to:
Under the right conditions, wildfires can form clouds and generate firestorms, which last far longer than normal thunderstorms.

**************
To learn more about this topic, start your googling with these keywords:
Pyrocumulonimbus cloud – a type of cumulonimbus cloud that forms that forms above wildfires and even volcanic eruptions, which can create thunderstorms
Virga – rain that evaporates before it hits the ground
Updraft – upward moving air in a thunderstorm
Downdraft – downward moving air in a thunderstorm

What If You Traveled One Billion Years Into the Future?



If you traveled 10,000 years into the future, what would planet Earth look like? Would most of its surface be covered in volcanoes? Or would it be frozen in ice? What if you traveled even further, to one million years in the future? Would all of the oceans have evaporated? Or would it have become one giant water world? Now, what about one billion years? Would there be any humans left? Or would they have settled in other parts of the galaxy?

WHAT ARE VESTIGIAL STRUCTURES? | SCIENCE MINUTE



Some parts of our bodies are leftover from our earlier ancestors! You know how we hold onto old stuff that used to serve a purpose, but we don’t really use anymore? Like old phone chargers or a halloween costume that doesn’t fit? The vestigial structures in our bodies are kinda like that! Watch the full video to learn about the science of vestigial structures.
