What If Earth Orbited UY Scuti?



UY Scuti: It’s the largest star that we’ve ever discovered. And if it were to replace our Sun, it would change a lot more than just the amount of sunscreen you’d have to put on. Like, how long would it take for our planet to orbit this massive star? What would that do to our seasons? And would we even survive a single orbit?

What If Mosasaurus Were Still Alive?

Could a monster be lurking in our oceans? And no, we’re not talking about the Loch Ness Monster or the Megalodon, we’re talking about a creature you probably have never heard of. The Mosasaur. But what is a Mosasaur? Could it have survived the great extinction? And if it did, how would it change our oceans?

What If the Megalodon Shark Fought the Mosasaurus?

What If the Megalodon Shark Fought the Mosasaurus?

Millions of years ago, the megalodon shark was one of the scariest creatures to ever lurk in our seas. And even before that, the mosasaurs reigned supreme, terrorizing every ocean creature in sight. Both these creatures were the apex predators in their separate eras. But what would happen if they had lived during the same time and fought? How would this battle play out? Which creature would have had the most advantages? And who would win?

What If Earth Was As Big As the Sun?

What If Earth Was As Big As the Sun?

Trees are falling, eco-systems are collapsing, and our infrastructure is crumbling. Crops are failing, and water is scarce. Earth is becoming a dead planet. On the plus side, there’s never been a better time to buy property! But who can think about real estate when they can’t leave their own home, let alone get out of bed, let alone breathe?
