Earth Speaks

Earth Speaks in an Inaudible Voice



You can’t hear it, but our planet’s ultradeep hum could save your life. No matter how closely you listen, you will not hear the Earth hum—but humming it is. Far, far below the range of human hearing, waves of energy are coursing through the crust, causing the ground beneath your feet to rise and fall about three-millionths of an inch every few minutes. First detected by networks monitoring seismic activity in 1998, the tiny ripples were initially chalked up to the many small earthquakes that occur each day around the world. But studies over the past decade have proved that the hum is far too constant for that explanation.

"One day you will ask me which is more important? my life or yours? 
I will say mine and you will walk away not knowing that you are my life."

The Manila Galleons

The Manila Galleons

The
Manila galleon ship wrecks are some of the richest in the world today. It should also be noted that along with any registered treasure carried by these ships, almost as much was being smuggled on a regular basis. Only a few have been found so far. 

Though the Spanish had reached the
Philippines from Mexico prior to 1564, they could never find a return route back eastward. It was a small fleet of four ships, under Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, who finally found a route in 1565. Don Luis de Velasco sent this expedition under the direction of Phillip II. and accompanying this fleet was Andres de Urdaneta, who had previously sailed with Loaysa to those seas in 1525. This fleet left Mexico on November 21, 1564 to begin the 9,000 nautical mile trek to the Philippines

Joke of the Day

If you think life is bad... How would you like to be an egg? You only get laid once. You only get eaten once. It takes 4 minutes to get hard. Only 2 minutes to get soft. You share your box with 11 other guys. But worst of all. The only chick that ever sat on your face was your mother. So cheer up... Your life ain't that bad!

Image of the Day

This bubble is the result of wind and radiation spewed from a few hot and massive stars and immense explosions from stellar supernovae. It sits about 30,000 light-years from Earth towards the constellation Vulpecula, and spans 1,100 by 520 light-year patch of sky.
