Covid-19, where did it begin?

I been asked a few times where I think everything started with Covid-19. The main favourite for this is Bats, probably Horseshoe or Pipistrelle. Viruses very similar to SARS, MERS and Covid-19 have been found in bats, and only a few in other types of creatures, at least not closely related ones. With MERS, very […]

Venus, What was it like in the past?

All that we know about the past of Venus is that it is slightly smaller than earth, being about 95% of the mass, 72% of the distance from the sun, with an atmosphere that is about 100 times that of earth, mostly composed of carbon dioxide, and highly volcanic. Apart from this virtually all evidence […]

Life; but not as we know it

If you pre-decide something and close down discussion, everything is possible, impossible, likely or unlikely. But, in life you are defined by the choice of choices you will allow, or are allowed. It’s hard to work out the effects of a particle or force on another particle if you don’t know sub-particles exist, but it’s […]

Eurovision Song Contest

In the first 18 years of the Eurovision Song Contest we never came last, and came first in 3 contests. In the last 18 years of Eurovision Song Contest we never came first, and came last in 5 contests. The number of UK viewers of the contest was 21.56 million in 1973. This year it […]

Pole Position and the Sun too

The deepest hole ever made through the crust was the Kola Superdeep Borehole that was about 7.6 miles. The earths crust at the point it was made was about 3 times this distance, so what lies beneath isn’t proven but guesswork from seismic estimations, so the idea of believe two massive blobs on molten iron […]

NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter

On 19th April 2021 the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter made history in being the first powered flight to take off from the Red Planet. There were later flights on 22nd, 25th, 30th April, and 7th May. Since then there hasn’t been a flight. To give NASA credit where credit’s due, I didn’t think that a helicopter […]

Chernobyl Radiation Levels Rising. What about Fukushima?

It’s interesting that neutron levels are rising again in the Chernobyl reactor areas, but it’s not something that is unexpected. To produce a fission reaction you need to have large quantities of radioactive material in as small an area as possible, and nature has this habit of through the action of weather and gravity, concentrating […]

Coronavirus Risks 8 (SARS-CoV-2)

I’ve been following the virus for 74 weeks now now. Originally I thought that it would be very limited, but that changed about 72 weeks ago, when the numbers began to rise and we found out more about it. The infected seem to consist of a lot that are in recovery, official active cases currently […]

Covid Status 26/04/2021

I became first interested in what became Covid-19 69 weeks ago, noticing a new respiratory illness being reported at the very end of 2019. By mid-January I realised that things were going wrong and nobody was taking it seriously, so it was very likely to arrive in our direction. In February-March it did. We are […]
