Have you ever thought of how maps are made into a flat surface? Can you cut a ball and show me the surface of the ball as a plane? No, you can’t. Then, you may have to make some amendments to do so.
The surface of the sphere cannot be represented as a plane without any distortion. Carl Friedrich Gauss has mathematically proven this. So, long time ago mathematicians have implemented algorithms to achieve this. For that, they used a process called Projection.
Popular rectangular maps are created with cylinder core projections. That is by putting the globe into a cylinder and projecting each point of the globe to the cylinder surface.
You can project the globe also to other objects, and that will affect the way the map looks.
All these projection methods come with trade-offs such as distance, direction, and land area. Those different maps can be used for different kind of purposes.
NASA utilized satellite measurements of carbon dioxide to make a startling new 3D video that shows how the greenhouse gas travels through Earth’s atmosphere.
The information was originated from NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) satellite, which was sent in 2014 in order to measure atmospheric CO2 at the regional level. The conclusions gathered over one year (from September 2014 to September 2015) were then fused with a high-resolution weather model to provide an unprecedented 3D view.
There are millions of movies out there under different genres. But there are some movies which we make our brain hurt after watching them, and most of such movies only can be understood just before a few minutes from the end. In some cases, you might need to re-watch it to understand what really happened. There is no defined genre for these type of movies, however these can be tagged as “Psychological Thriller” in most cases.
Here are the Top 20* brain twisting movies that you might need to watch.
(* These movies are selected from the preference of the author, and you are mostly welcome to suggest movies to the list.)
Note : The movies are ordered in the alphabetical order, and I haven’t added much description to some movies because I don’t want to spoil. And also I have added a rating (out of 5) under each movie, so you can decide which movie to watch first.
The brain is an amazing organ functioning inside the living organisms. It is an organ of soft nervous tissue contained in the skull of vertebrates, functioning as the control center of emotions and intellectual and nervous activity . The brain acts on the rest of the body both by generating patterns of muscle activity and by driving the flow of chemicals called hormones. Moreover, neurotransmitters aka chemical messengers help to transmit neuro-signals from one neuron to another. The combination of these two agents moderates our feelings of well-being, and lifestyle factors affect them. Hence, it will be beneficial for us, as living beings, to know how these can affect our day-to-day activities. Most importantly, it will be more helpful to know the ways we can manipulate the presence of them to improve our productivity.
