Back in 1925, 2 students in Missouri were challenged to dissect a cadaver’s nervous system, it took the students more than 1500 hours to do this, they had to start from the brain and went down, this helped them leave the entire nervous system in one piece. The two medical students - M.A. Schalck and L.P. Ramsdell worked their bum’s off with their "blood, sweat and tears", the nervous system is currently displayed at the Museum of Osteopathic Medicine at the ATSU (A.T. Still University)

Aurora’s are really beautiful, and what the good thing is that they also happen on different planets in our solar system. An aurora is the finale to a process that starts with the sun. The sun sends out a stream of solar winds into the solar system which are constantly happening, when the solar winds reach every planet, they get to interact with its magnetic field that surrounds it, then it compresses the field into a shape that is similar to a teardrop.
The change in the magnetic field causes the charged particles to accelerate towards the upper atmosphere, colliding with oxygen and nitrogen which gives off energy that is in the form of light. In which we see during an aurora.

A rock standing 50 meters high which is known as the Dún Briste, is what many call a scene that is 1000 years old. Many believe that it got separated from Ireland in 1393 when monster seas severed it from Mayo County during a storm that hit the place overnight.
The rock is 50 meters high and is 15 meters in width. The broken fort also has the remains of those buildings that were once placed on it.
And in 1980, 3 scientists landed on it by using a helicopter and spent a couple of hours to examine the remains of the buildings, they said that plants are still present on there.
The first ever walk through aviary was built in 1904 by the Smithsonian Institute for the St. Louis World’s Fair, it was the largest of its kind during that time and was bought by the Saint Louis Zoo, it is still present there.

Also known as the “Dreamliner”, the Boeing 787 and its younger siblings can seat up to 242 to 335 passengers per flight. The Dreamliner is actually 20% more fuel-efficient than its predecessor which is the Boeing 767.
Recently the Boeing 737 Max 8 raised many safety concerns, but the Dreamliner is a huge success for the airline company. The picture above was taken in 2013 when the FAA grounded all 787’s in the United States.

Here are some facts about space suits according to easyscienceforkids.com
· A spacesuit maintains a constant volume. You can survive in space for 15 seconds without wearing a spacesuit.
· Spacesuits are puncture proof.
· Astronauts will have to face so many challenges in space, like no air, no gravity etc. Spacesuits maintain earth like conditions and help them to survive.
·On the earth, a space suit weighs around 280 pounds without the astronaut in it. Although in space, it is weightless.
·The process of putting on a spacesuit is called ‘donning’ and the process of removing it is called ‘doffing’.
·Astronauts have a camera mounted on their helmet so that scientists on earth can see what an astronaut can see in space.
·An astronaut takes more than an hour to wear the space suit even with the help of a helper.
