Almost 15 years ago The Black Eyed Peas released this masterpiece. The song was a huge hit and it was rewarded with nominations at the 45th Grammy Awards in 2004 for Record of the Year and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.

Life after the war. Scavenging for oven wood in Munich, 1946. Allied bombing destroyed roughly 50% or more of Germany's fourth largest city, and left 300,000 without homes.

The coldest temperature ever recorded.

The lowest natural temperature ever recorded at ground level on Earth is about −89.2 °C (−128.6 °F; 184.0 K) at the Soviet Vostok' Station in Antarctica (July 21, 1983) via ground measurements.

A 2009 study estimated that under exceptional climate-conditions quite similar to those recorded at Vostok in 1983, temperatures higher on the plateau around Dome Argus could drop lower than −95 °C (−139 °F; 178 K). On August 10, 2010, satellite surveillance measured a surface temperature of −93.2 °C (−135.8 °F; 180.0 K) at 81.8°S 59.3°E, along a ridge between Dome Argus and Dome Fuji, at 3,900 m elevation. The result was reported at the 46th annual meeting of the American Geophysical Union in San Francisco, (December 2013); it is a provisional figure, and may be subject to revision.

Water is crucial for life, but how do you make water?

A molecular cloud is an interstellar cloud of dust, gas, and a variety of molecules. Molecular clouds hold most of the water in the universe, and serve as nurseries for newborn stars and their planets. Within these clouds, on the surfaces of tiny dust grains, hydrogen atoms link with oxygen to form water. Carbon joins with hydrogen to make methane. Nitrogen bonds with hydrogen to create ammonia. All of these molecules stick to the surface of dust specks, accumulating icy layers over millions of years. The result is a vast collection of “snowflakes” that are swept up by infant planets, delivering materials needed for life as we know it.

Pictured here is blue light from a newborn star lighting up the reflection nebula IC 2631. This nebula is part of the Chamaeleon star-forming region, which Webb Space Telescope will study to learn more about the formation of water and other cosmic ices.

African with blue eyes, a genetic mutation?

Biologically mixed Africans or African Americans have rougly a 25% chance of having blue eyes. That is, if for instance, they are 3/4 black with both a grandfather with blue eyes (from his/her father's side) and a grandmother with blue eyes (from his/her mother's side). _______________________________________________
Previous published studies estimate that on average, African Americans had about 82 percent African ancestry and about 18 percent European ancestry. But in self-identified African Americans in 23andMe’s database, Kasia found the average amount of African ancestry was closer to 73 percent.

The cause of blue eyes is a mutation in which a genetic switch limits the production of melanin in the iris.

The decision to bomb Dresden on February 13-14 1945, will continue to be one of the more controversial actions of the Second World War. The city was a cultural center of Germany with many historic world famous buildings; it was neither significant to German wartime production or a major industrial center. The city hadn’t suffered any major attack before then, so by February 1945 it was filled with refugees. They were fleeing bombing raids and most importantly the advancing red army to the east. At the time Dresden’s population was some 350,000, however with so many refugees it would have swelled much higher.
Over 1,300 British and American bombers dropped 2,400 tons of high explosives and 1,500 tons of incendiary Bombs on Dresden. A firestorm swept through the city killing tens of thousands, leaving it a smoldering ruin that could have been seen from the air over 500 miles away. The actual number of civilians killed is still argued over today. The purported figures are particularly wide, ranging from approximately 20,000 to well over 100,000 fatalities. The exact number of civilians present is difficult to prove.

Rhodotus palmatus is recognized as one of the most beautiful mushrooms ever. It is a circumboreal species, meaning it is found in the Northern hemisphere, specifically in Canada, Alaska, Russia and thereabouts. The caps of the Rhodotus palmatus are typically scored over with ridges and veins, which is technically called being sulcate (having parallel grooves) or reticulate (a netlike vein system). The mushroom is adnate, meaning that the gills on the underside of the cap are largely attached to the stem. The netted Rhodotus, like the one pictured, can "bleed" a pinkish, reddish liquid. The reason for this is as of yet unknown.

This is the Earth’s atmosphere and its moon as seen from the ISS (International Space Station). Just look at the Earth’s atmosphere in all of its glory. A layer of gas surrounds our planet and is retained by the Earth’s gravity. Although the moon appears to be right outside of our atmosphere, it is actually 238,900 miles away from us. Most humans will never even get the chance to see this view for themselves, but at least we get to enjoy this astral photography.
