10). Big Bang Booming - Back To The Future  By : Michael Strauss
Theoretical cosmologists spend much of their time perfecting what is now known as the 'Big Bang' theory.

14). Can we pull the moon to Earth?  By : hello
Theoretically, if we send enough electrons to the moon, we can pull the moon to Earth. This is, maybe a realistic solution for our over populated, energy hunger near future. If we start to beam electrons to the moon, it's only a matter of time before the moon starts to accelerate to Earth. The attraction force between the positive Eart...

18). characteristics of sound  By : Ryan Fyfe
Sound in brief but remarkeable terms is a vibration, that our ears percieve by the sense of hearing. Most commonly vibrations travel to our ears via the air. The ear then converts these sound waves into nerve impulses that are sent to our brains, where the impulses become sound. To say all that in a more technical language: Sound "is an alternation...
