Homepage - Large Hadron Collider. Solar System Planet Earth. A European researcher has interpreted carvings in a 32,500-year-old ivory tablet as a pattern of the same stars that we see in the sky today in the constellation Orion.

Solar System Planet Earth

The tablet is a sliver of ivory from the tusk of a mammoth — a large woolly animal like an elephant. Mammoths are extinct today. Carved into the ivory is what appears to be a carving of a human figure with outstretched arms and legs. The pose suggests the stars of Orion, according to Michael Rappenglueck, formerly of the University of Munich, known for his interpretation of ancient star charts painted on walls of prehistoric caves.

The ivory tablet has notches carved on its sides and back, which are not understood but might be an ancient pregnancy calendar to estimate when a woman would give birth. The tiny piece of ivory was in a cave in the Ach Valley in the Alb-Danube region of Germany when it was discovered in 1979. Stone Age people.

By translating Sumerian texts he was able to come up with the history of aliens visiting our planet about 450,00 years ago. They came from a planet called Marduk or Nibiru which is on a huge eliptical orbit around our Sun. It takes about 3,600 years for one orbit. Some of them apparently jump over to our planet as theirs approaches then leave as it leaves this part of the solar system. Editor. Space Pictures - Home.

LHC Machine Outreach

The tunnel is buried around 50 to 175 m. underground. It straddles the Swiss and French borders on the outskirts of Geneva. The first beams were circulated successfully on 10th September 2008. Unfortunately on 19th September a serious fault developed damaging a number of superconducting magnets. The repair required a long technical intervention. First collisions took place on 30th March 2010 with the rest of the year mainly devoted to commissioning. 2011 was the first production year with over 5 inverse femtobarns delivered to both ATLAS and CMS. 2012 started well with over 6 inverse femtobarns delivered by the time of the summer conferences - these data paved the way for the announcement of a/the Higgs on 4th July 2012.

The LHC is designed to collide two counter rotating beams of protons or heavy ions. The beams move around the LHC ring inside a continuous vacuum guided by magnets. Science - News for Your Neurons.

Use Science and Tech to Build the Ultimate Automated Garden By Thomas Hayden and Sal Vaglica Monday, April 21 9 Comments Let people who love sore backs and dirty fingernails painstakingly tend their gardenias. Today’s backyard should be a maximized, automated, hyperefficient system of caloric production. With a little science—and some engineering prowess—you can keep your plot tidy, pest-free, and healthy while barely lifting a finger.
