“You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded, because the elements – the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution and for life – weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars, and the only way for them to get into your body is if those stars were kind enough to explode. The stars died so that you could be here today.” Continue reading Are we made of Stardust?
Over the last few days, I have done a lot of research on the internet. I found an interesting topic to write about in my next blog, and, yeah, I decided to write about “Rapid Language Learning.”
This might be a topic that you face in your everyday life. You are sitting in school, it might be a Spanish lesson or a French lesson, and you don`t understand a single word the teacher is saying. For some people, it`s easier to learn languages, and for others it`s more difficult. In the post, you will find a few tips for improving you foreign language, in just a few months.

That’s how I found out about the phenomena called synesthesia.
Synesthesia is when one sense is automatically connected to another in your brain. For example when you hear the word ‘book’, you taste chicken, or when you see the number 3, you think of it as green. Only 1 in 2000 people have synesthesia and they are mostly women and left-handed. There are about 60 different types of synesthesia, but only a few cases could be well studied by scientists and doctors. Continue reading Can you see time?
Life beyond Earth. Does it exist?
I’m pretty sure you have wondered about it before, whether we are alone in this universe or not. Or, if there are beings that live among us in this endless dark space our world floats in.
Some scientists, for example, the astronomer Frank Drake, say ,,that we are surrounded by at least thousands of civilizations that inhabit this galaxy as well’’, while others believe that we are alone in this galaxy perhaps even in the entire universe. I believe that since the universe is infinite there could be an infinite number of inhabitable planets as well. Continue reading Life beyond Earth. Does it exist?
