I didn't know there was a debate around the origins of the Nile River.

Comment by Doone on November 12, 2019 at 6:45pm

The Nile River is much older than previously estimated

https://www.livescience.com/nile-river-older-than-thought.html

For thousands of years, the Nile River has fertilized valleys along its winding path through northeastern Africa, anchoring ancient civilizations and still serving as an important route of transport and irrigation today. 

But the age of its venerable waters, which stretch over 4,225 miles (6,800 kilometers), has been debated, with one group of experts claiming the river was born around 6 million years ago when a drainage system changed course, while another claims the river is five times older than that.


A new study finds evidence that supports the latter theory: The Nile River may have emerged around 30 million years ago, driven by the motion of Earth’s mantle — the thick layer of rock between the Earth's core and crust, a group of researchers reported on Nov. 11 in the journal Nature Geoscience.

Why golf balls have dimples. It turns out, somewhat counter intuitively, those dimples significantly decrease the drag on the golf ball as it flies through the air, compared to a smooth ball http://ow.ly/iBbo30nMBi4

That is a lot of desert

The Sahara desert's area is 9,200,000 square kilometres (3,600,000 sq mi) and is comparable to the area of the United States https://buff.ly/2WXqqWb

The problem with Dark Energy

https://blogs-images.forbes.com/startswithabang/files/2019/10/40002..." class="CToWUd a6T"/>Instead of adding in a cosmological constant, modern dark energy is treated as just another component of energy in the expanding Universe. This generalized form of the equations clearly shows that a static Universe is out, and helps visualize the difference between adding a cosmological constant and including a generalized form of dark energy. (© 2014 THE UNIVERSITY OF TOKYO; KAVLI IPMU)

From Starts with a Bang

We know that there are between 200 billion and 400 billion stars in the Milky Way galaxy. About 20% of those stars are Sun-like, for about 40-to-80 billion Sun-like stars in our galaxy. There are very likely billions of Earth-sized worlds orbiting those stars with the potential for the right conditions to have liquid water on their surfaces and being otherwise Earth-like, but whether that's 1 or 2 billion or 50 or 100 billion is still unknown. Future planet-finding and exploring missions will need better answers than we presently have today, and that's all the more reason to keep looking with every tool in our arsenal.

We're damn puny.
