Best Places to Find Copyright Free Clipart Sharetweet More and more people these days are creating websites, posters, and greeting cards on their computer. So what do websites, posters, and greeting cards have in common? Interactive Scale Of The Universe Trying to imagine the smallest things in our universe is a rather difficult task. Similarly, it is hard to truly conceive of the largest things in the cosmos—supermassive black holes, large quasar groups, and the most massive stars.

Max Tegmark, cosmologiste : "nous sommes sans doute seuls dans l’univers" Image composite du champ ultraprofond d’Hubble photographiée entre 2003 et 2012 dans trois gammes de rayonnements, le proche infrarouge, le visible et l'ultraviolet. Il s’agit du panorama galactique le plus coloré composé par le télescope spatial. Environ 10.000 galaxies sont éparpillées dans ce petit échantillon de la voûte céleste australe, et qui est quasiment dépourvu d’étoiles de notre Voie lactée au premier plan. Kukaan ei ole vegaani! – Tarinoita kestävästä kehityksestä Osa meistä ihmisistä innostuu helposti. Erityisen helposti innostumme asioista, joilla koetamme muuttaa elämäämme positiiviseen suuntaan. Yksi tällainen muutos voi olla ruokavalion laittaminen uuteen uskoon, esimerkiksi jättämällä eläinperäiset tuotteet pois ruokavaliosta. Tällaista ruokavaliota kutsutaan vegaaniseksi ruokavalioksi ja sen noudattajia vegaaneiksi. Yleisemmin veganismilla ymmärretään kaikista eläinperäisistä tuotteista luopumista. Suuri osa ihmisitä aloittaa vegaanisen ruokavalion noudattamisen terveydellisistä syistä, osaa motivoivat kyseisen ruokavalion pienemmät ympäristövaikutukset ja pieni osa kokeilijoista on mukana eläineettisistä syistä.

du femtomètre aux années-lumière Nikon propose sur son site anglais une belle animation pour illustrer les différentes échelles de notre univers : universcale. Cela rappelle le film sur les puissances de 10. L’animation est en anglais, mais la navigation est assez facile : en cliquant sur les textes, ceux-ci disparaissent. Pour « zoomer » ou « dézoomer », il suffit d’utiliser la molette centrale de sa souris. Elle illustre parfaitement le caractère « lacunaire » de la matière : il y a parfois de grandes plages d’échelles sans aucun objet. Par exemple, la taille de notre galaxie est de 1021m et la taille d’une nébuleuse est de l’ordre de 1018 m. 40 maps that explain the world By Max Fisher By Max Fisher August 12, 2013 Maps can be a remarkably powerful tool for understanding the world and how it works, but they show only what you ask them to. So when we saw a post sweeping the Web titled "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," one of which happens to be a WorldViews original, I thought we might be able to contribute our own collection. Some of these are pretty nerdy, but I think they're no less fascinating and easily understandable. A majority are original to this blog, with others from a variety of sources. I've included a link for further reading on close to every one.

News stories in photographs from Around The World Famous landmarks like the Arc Du Triumph, the Pyramids of Giza, and the Sagrada Familia have been photographed countless times by photographers from around the world, and they are recognizable to most, if not all, of us.

It’s also worth noting that a few of these sites, like the Pyramids of Giza and the hotels in Dubai, were designed with an aerial perspective in mind. The designs of certain Dubai hotels can only be appreciated fully from above, and some theorize that the Pyramids of Giza were meant to be aligned with the stars in Orion’s Belt.
