6 Times Science Proved It Can't A Huge Pearl Has Been Destroying 2 days ago   09:23

I’ve never understood that some people think that science is as boring as watching paint dry. Even if scientists literally watched paint dry, it would probably be part of some fascinating experiment, aimed at the betterment of all humanity, or at least the betterment of some paint.

There are a lot of scientific endeavors that take an immense amount of time, but produce the most amazing results! And here are some of the oddest among them. Elusive pitch drops, alarm bell that just won't stop, an experiment that is supposed to go on for 500 years - these are truly shocking!

-Since ancient time, astronomers have discovered that sunspots have a direct impact on the Earth’s climate. For example, there was a period called Medieval Maximum, from 1100 to 1250, when a lot of sunspots were observed, and which coincides with a period of warmer climate called the Medieval Warm Period.
-There is an alarm placed right in the foyer of Clarendon Laboratory at the University of Oxford that has been ringing since 1840.
-There is a clock at the University of Otago, in New Zealand, that hasn’t been wound since it was made in 1864 by Arthur Beverly and has almost never stopped to this day.
-A funnel was filled in 1927 with a highly dense pitch known to us as tar or asphalt. When the pitch settled down in 1930, its bottom was opened by Professor Thomas Parnell. It took, on average, 8 years for the first 7 drops to fall.
-Charles Cockell from the University of Edinburgh decided to find out how long can dried bacteria survive. In 2014 his ambitious experiment began, and it is supposed to end in 2514.
-In 2016, 12 populations of bacteria named E. coli reached the point of 66,000 generations. All these generations of E. coli are needed to track little evolutionary changes in them and to watch the evolution itself in miniature.

I have a plan in the future to build an organization that is specialized in collecting rare animals and making them reproduce to preserve their species. I would like to make a type of butterfly reproduce like 1,000 larvae so that children would see the beauty of nature through these butterflies.

A Huge Pearl Has Been Destroying 6 Times Science Proved It Can't 2 days ago   10:02

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, but not any jewelry is a good gift. You'll be surprised to know some pieces of it, like a cursed pearl, can destroy marriages! And that certainly makes that jewelry a girl's worst enemy. One pearl in particular managed to make plenty of enemies over centuries of ruining its owners' love lives.

For about 300 years, the infamous La Peregrina pearl was the largest to have ever been found, originally weighing in just shy of 56 carats or about 11 grams. King Philip presented his new bride with the mesmerizing pearl as a wedding present. Mary and Philip never got divorced, but it is known that the king left her not long after tying the knot. And that was only the beginning of the pearl's adventures.

-It was a slave in Panama who found the pearl in the early 1500s. Since Panama was a Spanish colony at the time, La Peregrina was then immediately handed over to Prince Philip II of Spain who presented it to his wife Mary. Queen had a taste for getting rid of people she didn’t like very much. Philip later left her, and it could’ve been the title thing, Mary’s not-so-enticing looks, or, given the victims yet to come, it may have been the cursed pearl at work.
-The Spanish king tried to give La Peregrina to Mary’s half-sister and successor, Elizabeth I…as a way to propose marriage. After her refusal, Philip kept his big shiny pearl, and it stayed with the Spanish Crown for the next 250 years.
-After Napoleon Bonaparte had declared himself Emperor of France, he made his older brother Joseph the King of Spain, and his wife Julie Clary would be Queen. She was the next lucky lady to receive the pearl as a gift from her husband. They pretty much lived totally separate lives.
-From Napoleon, it was sold to an English Duke by the name of James Hamilton in 1848. He’d bought the pearl for his wife Louisa.
-Richard Burton presented La Peregrina to his wife Elizabeth Taylor. There’s no proof that La Peregrina was to blame for these two actors’ failed marriage, but on the other hand, there’s also no proof that it wasn’t.
-The pearl was sold at Christie’s auction house on December 14, 2011 to a private buyer for a whopping $11.8 million.
