Strange Space Weather Alert: Interplanetary Shock Wave Hit the Earth, May 26, 2019

Updated 5/29/2019. The earth was hit by an interplanetary shockwave from space on May 26, 2019 and this unexpectedly caused our solar wind density to abruptly quadruple and the interplanetary magnetic field to double in strength. The shockwave caused an unexpected effect, similar to a solar Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), a burst of energy from … Continue reading

Hear the ET Message of a Singing Comet

Comet 67P/C-G is “singing” through space, emitting magnetic field oscillations at 40-50 millihertz, far below human hearing as it rotates. We can hear it now because the recorded magnetic fluctuations were translated into an audio signal and shifted by a factor of approximately 10,000 up into the frequencies the human ear can hear. Hear it … Continue reading

Video: The Sound of the Big Bang + Close Lightning Strikes

For a song I’m writing, I wanted a sound of the Big Bang, but when I looked into it, the sound, as worked out by one scientist, wasn’t big enough. It was not some huge explosive sound, but more of a robotic humming. This humming lasted for hundreds of thousands of years and got continuously … Continue reading

Why Did Israel’s Lander Crash on the Moon Yesterday?

We don’t know the exact details yet, but they told us which part failed first, leading to the crash. Crashing a spacecraft on the Moon was not part of the plan for Israel, but the historic Beresheet lander did reach and orbit that familiar heavenly body. It did so taking the longest route of any … Continue reading

Today: First Real Black Hole Images Shown

Behold, the first ever real images of a black hole, just released today, Wednesday April 10, 2019. To me this beats the other strange news I read today, including the final solving of the great mystery of why Garfield phones whose eyes open when you pick up the receiver have been washing up on French … Continue reading

A Hamburger Sent into Space Tastes Like…?

The strangest thing I heard about today is people eating hamburgers they sent into space. This first went up the 27th of October, 2012 at 12:22 PM by five Harvard students. “Operation Skyfall: First Hamburger In Space,” landed 130 miles from the launch site. There is some debate as to where “space” actually starts. The … Continue reading

Israel 7th Nation to Orbit the Moon

Okay, that title from NBC News is a bit misleading. Rest assured, true strange readers, that the nation of Israel itself is not orbiting the moon. In fact, at this point in human history, no nation has orbited the moon, ever. Nations have, however, sent spacecraft to do so and Israel’s successful Beresheet craft has … Continue reading

The Largest Known Structure in the Universe

The scale of the universe is mind-boggling. Within that boggle is a strange fact: the largest “structure” we have observed in the universe is so large that it should not exist according to current science. The largest structure (so far as of March 29, 2019) is the “Her-Cr Great Wall”. Why should this sheet-like group … Continue reading

This is the strangest Ping Pong I’ve seen today. Check out this cool little video of Scott Joseph Kelly playing water ping pong in space. From @ftlscience on Instagram. – TrueStrange.com
