Yes I'm pretty certain it's honey too. I seem to recall reading that when they opened the Pharaoh's tombs under the Egyptian pyramids, they found jars of honey that were still edible after 3000 years !
The truth is that nobody as yet knows. Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our solar system (some 1100 times bigger than Earth by volume) and is designated a 'gas giant'. This means that its atmosphere is hundreds (if not thousands) of kilometres deep, and probes which have been launched into it, such as … Read more
No reason why not but if you DO, and tell your kids that you are,doing so, they are always going to suspect your motives and assume you're trying to spy on them. Everyone has a need for privacy and perhaps a secret 'other' life - even (or maybe, especiially !) children. I know we want … Read more
Approximately 243 (Earth) days to complete 1 rotation ie, a Venusian 'day'. Curiously, it takes 19 fewer days to complete an orbit of the Sun, so a Venusian 'day' is longer than a Venusian 'year' !!
Let's see - Garlic, Basil, Chives, Coriander, Oregano, Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Worcestershire Sauce (Not necessarily all together - Lol !)
Let's go out and get hammered tonight ! We at-TACK at dawn . Fancy a drive-in ? My name's Brad - what's yours ?
Got to be pineapple for me - so versatile !
ALL the moon's apparent light is sunlight reflected from the moon.s surface. It follows therefore, that if the light from the sun is blocked either partially or fully by another body (in this case the Earth) that correspondingly, part, all or indeed none of the moon's surface will be illuminated according to how the Sun, … Read more
A Rectangular Soccer Field Is Twice As Long As It Is Wide. If The Perimeter Of The Soccer Field Is 300 Yards, What Are It's Dimensions?
The total perimeter of 300 yards is comprised of 2 x Length and 2 x Width. Thus 1 x Length + 1 x Width = 300 / 2 = 150 yards. If Length = 2 x Width, then the ratio of length to width is 2 : 1 2 + 1 = 3 Divide 150 … Read more
Can't be really accurate but oldest known star in our galaxy is thought to be over 13 billion years old which was not that long after the 'big bang'.
Numbers such as 1, 2 and 3 etc are known as CARDINAL numbers. When relating to a position in a sequence (say 1st, 2nd or 3rd in a race) thes are ORDINAL numbers.
5.33 recurring cubic yards
To convert metres to centimetres, move the decimal point 2 places to the right.
Please excuse the pedantry, but Mercury was the Messenger of the Gods in ROMAN mythology. His Greek counterpart was HERMES. With the exception of Uranus, all the planets were named after gods in the Roman pantheon.
Satellite is really just another name for moon, so our moon, and all other moons in orbit around planets, are called natural satellites. Artificial satellites are those man-made objects which we launch into space for a variety of purposes (communications, weather forecasting, navigation, surveillance etc) and like the moon, go into orbit around the Earth, … Read more
About 0.41 Earth days. No, I haven't gotten it wrong. Despite its enormous size, Jupiter has the fastest rotation period (on its own axis) of all the planets - just 9 hours 55 minutes approximately.
The first man-made object into space was the Soviet Union satellite SPUTNIK 1 launched on 4 October 1957.
If there are no delays, about 2 - 2.5 hours.
For most practical purposes, we can regard the Moon as being in orbit around the Earth, but in actuality, the two bodies revolve around their common centre of gravity. As the Earth's gravitational pull is 6 times greater, naturally this point lies well inside the Earth, but nonetheless it does mean tht the moon imparts … Read more
