15 Mind Bending Scientific Truths To Challenge Your Brain

It doesn’t take much to realize that science is awesome! For example, you probably already know that everything is made up of atoms. Those atoms have a few protons and neutrons in the nucleus and then they are surrounded by electrons that orbit the nucleus like little moons (simplified explanation). At any rate, the most interesting thing about atoms is that they are about 99.99% empty space. That’s right. This screen consists of atoms. cool stuff for guys cool stuff to buy cool stuff for kids cool stuff to make

And those atoms consists of almost nothing. So why is it that you don’t see right through the screen. In fact, how is it that we can see/feel/stand on anything at all? It’s because of forces. Those atoms in the table (in spite of just being mostly empty space) actually repel the atoms (aka empty space) in your hand. So what you are touching isn’t actually a “thing”. When you touch something you are actually experiencing a repulsive force, kind of like gravity. cool stuff for guys cool stuff to buy cool stuff for kids cool stuff to make

And since those empty atoms reflect photons, you cannot see through them. You only see the photons being reflected off of what is essentially empty space. Crazy right?! cool stuff for guys cool stuff to buy cool stuff for kids cool stuff to make

The coldest place anywhere in the known universe is (was) right here on Earth in a laboratory. Scientists managed to nearly freeze atoms using laser cooling. This has lead to temperatures within a billionth of a degree of absolute zero.
