Week 7

Magnificent and Majestic Nature

One of my favorite things about nature is space. I love just looking up at the stars and galaxies and observing their beauty. It makes me realize how small we actually are. It also shows me that possibilities are endless, and that I should reach for the stars. I find it amazing how when we look up at the stars we are not actually seeing the present day stars. We are seeing them in the past because they are so far away. The way this works is that stars have light so their light travels at light speed. Depending on the stars length away from earth, it takes time for the light to reach us. The farther into space we look, the farther back in time we are seeing. If time travel is ever possible in the future, I think this will be the key.

Another thing I find interesting about nature is the oceans. There are so many places in them that have not been explored yet. In the oceans there are so many types of wild life such as fish and plant species. I think that there are some that are in our oceans that have not been discovered yet. This is a very interesting topic because it can lead to a new organism that can change our whole understanding of science. This can be if we find an animal that can sustain life with out needing water. This will be the first animal to ever do this proving many scientific theories wrong. There may also be huge underwater caves that somehow don’t have water in them. If so, there may be a way to colonize the caves. There are many possibilities.

In these oceans, a very interesting animal is the dolphin. I like the dolphin because they are very smart animals. Research shows that dolphins have unlocked more percent of their brains than humans have. This is the only animal on earth that has accomplished this. Dolphins communicate with sound. They all have distinct whistles which is how they can tell who is who from far away. The fact that dolphins are very friendly is also very cool. People can pet them and swim with them without them causing violence. They are smart enough to be trained to be kind to and comfortable with humans.
