The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Leges         Sine    Moribus     Vanae   
Faith,
if it has not works, is dead, being alone.

Where is the Largest Protected Park on Earth? 


The largest protected park on Earth is Greenland‘s Northeast Greenland National Park, which is approximately 357,917 square miles (927,000 square km) or about two times the size of the state of California. It was established in 1974 and contains an estimated 40% of the worldwide population of musk ox. Other animal species that live in Northeast Greenland National Park include walruses, snowy owls, polar bears, and arctic foxes. Due to its Arctic location, the park area barely reaches above freezing temperatures in the summertime, has little sunlight, and is in extreme darkness for around four months of the year.

More about nature reserves:

•Australia’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park is home to the Great Barrier Reef coral reef, which is the largest living structure in the world.

•The largest marine reserve on Earth is the Chagos Marine Protected Area, located in the British Indian Ocean Territory--it’s around twice the size of the United Kingdom and contains the biggest coral atoll, or circular-shaped coral formation, in the world.

•Greenland’s Northeast Greenland National Park is larger in size than all but 30 countries in the world.

HD 162826: Astronomers Discover Second Sun

Astronomers from the United States, Russia and Australia have discovered the first true solar sibling – HD 162826.

D 162826, a star born in the same star cluster as our Sun, is located in the constellation Hercules, about 110 light-years away from Earth. It has a mass about 1.15 times that of the Sun.

The star is not visible to the unaided eye but can be seen with low-power binoculars, not far from Vega.

The astronomers led by Dr Ivan Ramirez from the University of Texas at Austin identified HD 162826 as our Sun’s sibling by following up on 30 possible candidate stars. In addition to chemical analysis, they also analyzed information about orbits of these stars.

Considering both chemistry and orbits narrowed the field of candidates down to one – HD 162826.

“No one knows whether this star hosts any life-bearing planets,” said Dr Ramirez, who reported the discovery in the Astrophysical Journal (arXiv.org version).

Dr Ramirez’s team has ruled out any massive planets orbiting close to the star.

“It’s unlikely that a Jupiter analog orbits the star,” Dr Ramirez said.

However, he and his colleagues do not rule out the presence of smaller terrestrial planets.

“The finding of a single solar sibling is intriguing, but the project has a larger purpose: to create a road map for how to identify solar siblings, in preparation for the flood of data expected soon from surveys such as ESA’s Gaia.”

Gaia will provide accurate distances and proper motions for a billion stars, allowing scientists to search for solar siblings all the way to the center of our Milky Way Galaxy.

“The number of stars that we can study will increase by a factor of 10,000,” Dr Ramirez said.

“Don’t invest a lot of time in analyzing every detail in every star. You can concentrate on certain key chemical elements that are going to be very useful. These elements are ones that vary greatly among stars, which otherwise have very similar chemical compositions. These highly variable chemical elements are largely dependent on where in the Galaxy the star formed.”

“We want to know where we were born. If we can figure out in what part of the Galaxy the Sun formed, we can constrain conditions on the early Solar System. That could help us understand why we are here,” Dr Ramirez said.

Once many more solar siblings have been identified, astronomers will be one step closer to knowing where and how the Sun formed.

Dedicated to Richard L. (Dick) Proenneke  1916-2003


"Distance is relative. A trip on this lake takes me about 3 hours to canoe 8 and half miles if I don't have a wind to fight. With a motor on the canoe I could make it in less than an hour. But a motor's noise stills the sound of the wilderness.

From Davy Jones' Locker to the largest know cave in the world (it's in Viet Nam) to the 9,000 ft high lost world that inspired Arthur Conan Doyle's novel to some amazing and unique life forms like a huge meat eating PLANT  :o  ;D and chemotrophic life forms, video proof that this planet has many wonders yet to be revealed to human eyes.
