    Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell

    10 个月 前

    We created our first app ‘Universe in a Nutshell’, together with Tim Urban of Wait but Why! You can get it here: Appstore: kgs.link/universe-app-ios Google Playstore: kgs.link/universe-app-android Oh boy. Making an app is hard. It seemed so easy when we started. We underestimated the necessary work load and all the potential problems tenfold - this is not a figure of speech, this took ten times longer than we thought it would. And we are sort of used to working on big projects. So the first update to the app should hopefully be here in the next 24 hours (we are waiting for approval of the update in the app stores) - it will fix a bunch of small things that slipped through. We’ll constantly improve this thing because while it was honestly a horrible nightmare to make, it also was fun and we want to get better at it and make more things in the future. In case you don’t know Wait but Why btw, it is the best and most fun blog on the internet (waitbutwhy.com/2020/09/universe.html) and if you don’t know it you should change that like right now. Tim and I collaborated for the first time in 2013 and we have been good friends ever since. And this thing was something we started talking about years ago. So what is this thing we made and why? You can seamlessly travel from the smallest things in existence, past the coronavirus, human cells and dinosaurs all the way to the largest stars and galaxies and marvel at the whole observable universe. You can learn more about each object or simply enjoy the sheer scale of it all. It’s a fun plaything. The app is inspired by the “scale of the universe” website by the Huang Twins that Tim and I spent a lot of time with when it came out years ago - and felt that it was finally time to create a Wait but Why and Kurzgesagt version. There are no in-app purchases and no ads. All future updates are included! Since this is our first app we would love to hear your feedback so we can improve it over time. Leave us a five star review if you want to support it. Kurzgesagt and all the projects we do are mostly funded by viewers like you. So if you like the app we’ll make more digital things in future! Ok! Thank you for reading - Philipp

    Unfortunately, UY Scuti’s GAIA measurements are a result of the excessive amount of astrometric noise in GAIA’s observations, which make it unreliable for detecting far away stars including UY Scuti. GAIA’s parallax creates margins of error for stellar properties beyond realistic values and the astrometric noise is beyond acceptable levels. UY Scuti’s older estimates of 1,708 solar radii are still more reliable as of now. Hopefully the successor to GAIA gives us much better observations with much less noise in the coming decades.

    Surah Mulk indexed with number 67, number of verses 30 1 Exalted is He, in Whose hand is all dominion, and He has power over all things. 2 He it is Who created death and life, that He might try which of you is best in conduct. He is the Mighty, the Forgiving. 3 He it is Who created the seven heavens in pairs. In the creation of the Merciful you can not see any contrast, so direct your gaze to see if you see any cracks? 4 Then, from time to time, direct your gaze, and your gaze will return to you humbled and helpless. 5 We have adorned the nearest heaven with candles, and We have made them shooters against the devils, for whom We have prepared a painful doom. 6 Hell is the punishment for those who disbelieve in their Lord; what a bad place he is! 7 When they are thrown into it, they will hear his roar and it will boil. 8 "Out of anger, he is almost torn to pieces. Every time a crowd is thrown at him, the guard asks him:" Did not a prophet (warner) come to you? 9 They say: "Yes, a messenger came to us, but we rejected him, and we said, 'Allah did not reveal anything, and you are nothing but a great loss.' 10 And they say, If we had heard and understood, we would not have been among the dwellers of the Fire. 11 Wherefore they confess their sins; the dwellers of the Fire shall be far from mercy. 12 Those who fear their Lord without seeing it, for them is forgiveness and a great reward. 13 But hide yourselves, or speak your word openly; surely He knows what you conceal in your hearts. 14 Do not He Who created create, when it is known that He penetrates the depths of secrets, knows the details? 15 He it is Who has made the earth suitable for you, so walk through its parts and enjoy His bounties, for with Him is the future. 16 Have you been assured by Him Who is in the heavens that the earth may not shake you when it shakes? 17 Were you assured of Him Who is in heaven, that He should not send upon you a tempest of stones? Well, you will understand what My punishment is! 18 Even those before them denied, but what was My punishment? 19 Did they not look at the birds above him with open arms, and when they fold their wings, no one holds them in the air except the Almighty? He is the One who sees and knows every thing. 20 Who is your army that can help you but the Merciful? It is true that the disbelievers are found in a great deception. 21 Who is he that feedeth you, if He should withhold His provision from you? Nay, but they persist in arrogance and aversion. 22 Is he more guided who walks face down on the earth, or he who walks upright on the straight path? 23 Say: He it is Who created you, and endowed you with hearing, sight and mind, and you give thanks a little. 24 Say: "It is He Who created you and multiplied you in the earth, and to Him you will be gathered." 25 And they say: When will this promise be fulfilled, if ye are truthful? 26 Say: "Only Allah knows, and I am only a warner to you." 27 "When they see it (Hell) approaching, the faces of those who disbelieve will be disfigured, and it will be said to them, 'This is what you used to seek.' 28 Say: Tell me, if Allah takes my soul and those with me, or has mercy on us, who will protect the disbelievers from a painful doom? 29 Say: He is the Beneficent, We have put our trust in Him and in Him we put our trust, and you will know who the lost one is. 30 Say: Tell me, if your water is lost in the depths, who will bring you above ground water?

    That's some nice speculation, shame the heliocentric model is still a theory, and I heard that from ol dildo Dawkins begrudgingly conceding that point in a debate By the way heliocentric did used to mean centre of the universe but it applies to centre of our solar system As well So this guys presentation about the nature of the lights in the sky is speculation built on speculation, apparently it's not even proven we have a solar system and the planet's orbit the sun at the centre, how is that not proven you ask? I thought we had satellites and telescopes and computers doing calculations, I thought that too, but here we are, supposedly they can send a drone to mars but they can't for sure tell if the solar system is even a solar system

    lol "They break the rules" is such a stupid fucking thing to say by anyone smart or dumb about the universe and the celestial bodies that exist. There aren't rules. We barely even know anything. We only discovered 14% of the OCEANS species. We have yet to know anything or how anything exists. Nothing should be able to survive in the deepest depths of the Ocean, but they do. We keep using Humans as the standard for what can or cant survive. And using our basic understanding of Stars or planets to then dictate what their "rules" are.
