NASA - what is dark energyIn the early 1990s, one thing was fairly certain about the expansion of the Universe. It might have enough energy density to stop its expansion and recollapse, it might have so little energy density that it would never stop expanding, but gravity was certain to slow the expansion as time went on.
Black Holes and QuasarsBlack holes sound like they're straight out of a science fiction story: objects so dense that nothing in the universe can escape from their gravitational pull. But over the past few decades astronomers have been steadily building up evidence that black holes are not only real, but, in fact, quite prevalent in the universe.
Research Says Screen Time Can Be Good For Your KidsScreen time is not all bad for your kids. They can learn a ton from video games. And when parents and children are watching or playing together, kids are internalizing important social skills. Being intentional about the messages you send to your kids about media is a missing link in most parenting strategies.

Deforestation FactsDeforestation or felling trees has become a favorite activity of man to extract assorted needs- be it medicines or precious paper to waste.
Tropical RainforestRainforests used to cover 14% of the Earth, and now we only have 6% left. Did you know? Every second, a section the size of a football field is cut down. Scientists estimate that in about 40 years, the 6% will be gone as well. In rainforests, the most valuable asset to people is the amount of wood. In time, the impacts of deforestation will become obvious.

Scientists measure Slow Death of the UniverseAn international team of astronomers studying 200,000 galaxies has measured the energy generated within a large portion of space more precisely than ever before, discovering that it’s only half what it was 2 billion years ago and fading – the Universe is slowly dying.
Don’t Panic, But The Universe Is Slowly DyingWe know that our universe has already lived through great number of exciting phases. But new research released overnight shows the universe has long passed its peak and is slowly but surely dying.
