8 Maps Showing How The US Fits Into The Rest Of The World How the US Population Fits in Europe by reddit user jackblack2323 The US is the third most populous country on earth, with over 320 million people according the current U.S. Census Population Clock. Yet, only around 4.4% of the world’s people live in the country and considering it’s only the 180th most densely populated country on earth, it’s rather sparsely populated. Moreover, if the US ever wanted to catch-up with China (most populated) or India (soon to be most populated), it would have to increase its population fourfold (1.2 billion+). Even then, this would still only make it the 89th most densely populated country on earth (assuming of course no population changes in any other country).

The Order of Time by Carlo Rovelli review – a worthy heir to Stephen Hawking In Hitler’s Germany, a handful of physicists bristled at the mere mention of quantum theory. The troubling uncertainties of Einsteinian relativity and other physical exotica were viewed as “Jewish science” inimical to German nationhood and the Newtonian mechanics of Deutsche Physik. “German physics” (sometimes called “Aryan physics”) failed to make inroads in 1930s Germany because its champions were so plainly deluded.

Our Sun Is Lighter Than Ever, And The Problem Is Getting Worse Here on Earth, the ingredients for life to survive, thrive, evolve, and sustain itself on our world have all coexisted without fail for billions of years. In addition to all the atoms and molecules our planet possesses, our world also has the right conditions for liquid water on its surface, owing to our atmosphere and being at just the right distance from our Sun. Yet if the Sun were either significantly cooler or hotter, that habitability would come to an abrupt end. All the ingredients we could conceive of wouldn’t change the simple fact: without the right energy input from our Sun, life would be an impossibility. Our Sun contains 99.8% of the Solar System’s mass, but gets lighter every day.
