What Colour is a Mirror?

Ever wondered how something so simple and abundant can actually be possible? How do mirrors work and what are they made of? Mirrors To master exactly how a mirror is capable...

How to See Without Glasses

Vision is arguably our most important sense. Without it, our other senses allow us to paint a picture in our brains and imagine what it is happening around us. As the saying goes, seeing is believing. Unfortunately, many people around the world have impaired vision, meaning they need glasses to see. How do these glasses correct one’s vision and in case...

Why Do We Kiss?

How many people do you think you’ve kissed during your lifetime? From family, to friends, to lovers; you have kissed them all for different reasons. A kiss is the unmistakable symbol for love, something as instinctive as the handshake, but means so much more. But what are the origins of this universal gesture and how has it become so ingrained into...

Why are the Oceans Blue?

The Oceans are known to be beautifully blue. While this question may seem staggeringly obvious to answer, there’s more to it than you think. Why is it when you wash your hands, the water appears transparent and not blue; considering the water of the Oceans is blue? Why, in some cases, does the Ocean appear a different colour, i.e. almost green? All...

Why Can’t We Charge Our Phones INSTANTLY?

Mobile batteries are known to suck. They barely last a full day and take at least an hour to fully charge up. Having seen how far technology has come; surely by now there should be batteries that last a lot longer than just a few hours – batteries that can charge up in an instant. Why hasn’t this technology been done? In fact, can it be done? The...

How do Snowflakes form such Beautiful Patterns?

How do they form, where do they form and how do they manage to look so incredible? Snowflake Formation The birth of a snowflake begins high up in Earth’s atmosphere....

How Masturbation affects your Confidence

Masturbation is very, very common. It is estimated that above 90% of Men, over the age of 30, have tried it at least once.

Our Solar System, Our Home

We live on a planet, called Earth, which lives in a Solar System of many other planets, that lives in a galaxy containing millions and millions of other Solar Systems, that also lives between millions and millions of other galaxies, in a Universe we know so little about. Alone, our Solar System has secrets we have not yet unlocked. In this article,...

Solids, Liquids and Gases… Is that it? – Part 2

In part 1, we spoke about Plasma being the fourth state of matter. It occurs when a gas absorbs so much energy (by heating for example), such that electrons cannot stay in orbit around their nucleus in the atoms within this heated gas. Let’s work the other way. Can we cool a solid so much that it behaves in a way so different such that it becomes another...

Solids, Liquids and Gases… Is that it? – Part 1

If you remember back to the days where you just started learning Science, you’ll most likely have been taught that matter can be one of 3 possible states; a solid, a liquid or a gas. Is that completely true? Could we heat a gas up so much that if we looked at it, we fundamentally cannot call it a gas anymore? Similarly, could we cool a solid down so...
