NASA’s Kepler Telescope Discovers First Earth-Size Planet in ‘Habitable Zone’
Kepler-186f is 1.1 times the size of Earth.
Due to its size and location, it’s likely to be rocky. It’s (probably) not some gaseous ball.
It’s 500 lightyears away from Earth.
Scientists hypothesize it is at least several billion years old.
Its years are 130 days long and it gets one-third the energy from its star that Earth gets from the sun. So it’s chilly. On the chilliest end of the habitable zone.
At noon on Kepler-186f, its sun would be about as bright as ours is an hour before sunset.
It has four brother planets, though none of them are habitable. They fly around their sun once every four, seven, 13 and 22 days, so they are way too close and too hot for life.

"If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.

If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.

Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.

The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so."

Kim Katrin Crosby, Keynote Speaker for LGBTQ History Month at Dartmouth, on September 30, 2013 (via theskunkcatcher)

A new formula helps CSIs determine whether a victim took a blow standing up.
1// Height of the blood at the beginning of its parabolic arc, that is, when it left the body.
2// Tangent of the angle at which the first blood drop hit the ground.
3// Tangent of the angle at which the second drop hit the ground.
4// Horizontal distance the first drop traveled.
5// Horizontal distance the second drop traveled.
