Worst Natural Disasters You Didn’t Know About
Our planet has a way of throwing some crazy and unpredictable things at us, and this is where you’ll find some of the worst of the worst in history. From blizzards in the desert to tsunamis with unimaginable power, we’ll show you the deadliest and most destructive natural acts ever to affect the human race. Welcome to Worst Natural Disasters You Didn’t Know About. Learn about the BIGGEST of everything Monday, Wednesday, and Friday just subscribe! 5. Mount Tambora Eruption Well, this is brutal. Roughly 1.5 million people live on the island of Sumbawa, which belongs to Indonesia. In 1815, between 70 and 100,000 people lost their lives in seconds when a volcano named Mount Tambora erupted. Tambora is 8,930 feet high, and it’s only about half as big now as it once was. The 1815 eruption was so strong that the volcano blew the top third of itself off. A 12-cubic mile ash, dust, and gas cloud, and almost immediately claimed nearly the entire islands population. Tsunamis spewed forth in every direction, and 36 cubic miles of rock, aerosols, and ash were injected into our atmosphere. That cloud blocked the sun and brought the average temperature of the entire world down 5.4 degrees Fahrenheit, and everyone felt it. Crops failed, and famine began and to top it all off, the eruption changed the weather, causing snow and deadly frost to occur in the summertime in some countries. You can imagine that that added to the volcano’s deadliness. 4. Bohla Cyclone In 1970, the deadliest cyclone to ever take place happened in what is now Bangladesh. Both Pakistan and India weren’t communicating things with each other at the time due to high tensions. They didn’t even tell each other about significant events such as cyclones, although they share a very cyclone-prone coastline. Bangladesh was called East Pakistan at the time, and their government ignored warnings, recommendations, and a disaster plan that could have saved many lives. Instead, the Bohla Cyclone raged through th

What causes a volcanic eruption? | Natural Disasters
In this video we look at how the continuous movement of Earth's tectonic plates results in volcanic activity. In a volcanic eruption, super-heated magma from within the earth’s upper mantle works its way to the surface. This most often occurs at tectonic plate boundaries, but some volcanoes can also form over 'hotspots', or weak areas in the earth's crust.

Scary EARTHQUAKE Footage Compilation From Around The World
5 Most Devastating Earthquakes- 5. Sicily, Italy. On January 11, 1693, a powerful earthquake with a magnitude of 7.4 and maximum intensity of XI or ‘extreme’ had struck the parts of Sicily, Calabria, and Matta in southern Italy. Considered the most powerful in Italian history, it destroyed at least 70 towns and cities causing the death of 60,000 people. It was also followed by a tsunami that hit the Ionian Sea and the Straits of Messina, wiping out two-thirds of the entire population of Catania. 4 Rudbar, Iran This disastrous event happened on June 21, 1990 and caused widespread damage within 100 kilometers of the epicenter’s radius near the city of Rashi, and about 200 kilometer northwest of Tehran. It destroyed 700 villages across the cities of Rudbar, Manjiil, and Lushan and cost $200,000,000 in damages, including 40,000 fatalities, 60,000 injured and 500,000 people homeless. 3 Izmit, Turkey This was a 7.9-magnitude earthquake that struck northern Turkey on August 17, 1990, which lasted for only 3.7 seconds. The city of Izmit was very badly damaged and had a death toll of 17,127 and 43, 959 injured though other sources suggested that the actual figure for fatalities may be closer to 45,000 with a similar number of injured. Another report from September 1999 showed that the earthquake had destroyed 120,000 poorly-engineered houses, heavily damaged 50,000 houses; caused 2,000 buildings to collapse while 4,000 other buildings left severely damaged, and made more than 300,000 people homeless. 2 Nankaido, Japan This 8.6 magnitude earthquake that occurred on September 20, 1498, off the coast of Nankia, Japan triggered a large tsunami, which cost the lives of between 26,000 and 31,000 people. It caused severe shaking that reached the Boso Peninsula and also caused a tsunami in the Suruga Bay, which destroyed the building that housed the statue of the Great Buddha at Kotuku-in. 1 Nepal Earthquake (between Kathmandu and the city of Pokhara) A 7.8 magn

10 Ways to Survive an Earthquake, According to Experts
Find out how you can save yourself and protect your family in case of an earthquake. These survival hacks are important for all of us, even if you don't live in an area with a lot of seismic activity. No one is 100% safe from this disaster because you never know where you might be traveling or living in the future. So pay close attention to these safety recommendations that could save your life one day. Fortifying your house is a good place to start. Make sure you have enough supplies, including food, medications, fire extinguishers, batteries, and flashlights. Have an expert test your house’s foundation so it won’t slip during an earthquake. Depending on where the earthquake finds you, you should follow different survival rules. The most important thing in all cases is not to panic and to memorize the Drop, Cover, and Hold on technique. Drop right where you are onto your hands and knees. This is a safe position that allows you to slowly move towards shelter. Use one arm to cover your head and neck. A massive desk or table makes a good shelter. If there’s nothing in the room to hide under, at least stay away from the windows. Remain in this position and bend over as much as you can to protect your vital organs. Hold on like this until the shaking stops. If you were able to find some shelter, hold onto it using one hand and be prepared to move with it as it might shift.

Southern California braces for more aftershocks after 7.1 magnitude earthquake
Southern California is awaiting more aftershocks after two powerful earthquakes rocked the area this week. The 7.1 magnitude quake, which hit just after 8 p.m. local time, was felt from Los Angeles all the way to Nevada and caused injuries, sparked fires and closed roadways. The quake was centered in the Mojave Desert near the town of Ridgecrest, which is still recovering from a 6.4 magnitude quake on the Fourth of July. Carter Evans reports.

Why is California always on fire?
Humans are making the problem worse. Can we get out of nature’s way, for our own good? Wildfires are intensifying in California — but “wild”fires might be a misnomer at this point, because humans are responsible for why they’ve gotten so out of control. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that 84 percent of fires are started by humans. The Carr fire in northern California, for example, was sparked by the rim of car with a flat tire. If you look at where California’s population is growing and getting denser, you’ll see that more and more people are building in areas that are at risk, increasing the potential for costly destruction — 2017 was the most expensive year on record, topping $10 billion in damages. Since we drastically exacerbated this problem, can we swing it back the other way? The impact of man-made climate change is unlikely to reverse. And people continue to build in dangerous areas, with no sign of stopping. By 2050, there could be over 640,000 new homes built in the path of wildfires.

Why wildfires are necessary - Jim Schulz
Our early ancestors relied on lightning to cause forest fires, from which they could collect coals and burning sticks to help them cook food and clear land. Yet, it wasn’t just humans who benefited from these natural phenomena. Even as they destroyed trees, fires also helped the forests themselves. Jim Schulz outlines the benefits of wildfire.

Massive Sinkhole Documentary - World's Most Terrifying Sinkhole - Documentary HD
Massive Sinkhole Documentary - World's Most Terrifying Sinkhole - Documentary HD Sinkholes may vary in size from 1 to 600 m (3.3 to 2,000 ft) both in diameter and depth, and vary in form from soil-lined bowls to bedrock-edged chasms. Sinkholes may be formed gradually or suddenly, and are found worldwide. On 2 July 2015, scientists reported that active pits, related to sinkhole collapses and possibly associated with outbursts, have been found on the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko by the Rosetta space probe. Sinkholes may capture surface drainage from standing or running water, but may also form in high and dry places in specific locations. The formation of sinkholes involves natural processes of erosion  or gradual removal of slightly soluble bedrock (such as limestone) by percolating water, the collapse of a cave roof, or a lowering of the water table. Sinkholes often form through the process of suffosion. Thus, for example, groundwater may dissolve the carbonate cement holding the sandstone particles together and then carry away the lax particles, gradually forming a void. Occasionally a sinkhole may exhibit a visible opening into a cave below. In the case of exceptionally large sinkholes, such as the Miny?© sinkhole in Papua New Guinea or Cedar Sink at Mammoth Cave National Park in Kentucky, an underground stream or river may be visible across its bottom flowing from one side to the other. Sinkholes are common where the rock below the land surface is limestone or other carbonate rock, salt beds, or in other rocks, such as gypsum,  that can be dissolved naturally by circulating ground water. Sinkholes also occur in sandstone and quartzite terrains. As the rock dissolves, spaces and caverns develop underground. These sinkholes can be dramatic, because the surface land usually stays intact until there is not enough support. Then, a sudden collapse of the land surface can occur. Sinkholes may capture surface drainage from standing or runni

HAWAII UPDATE — Kilauea volcano eruption (December 25, 2019)
Kilauea volcano eruption (Hawaii News Update 2019). Back in May 2018, Hawaii’s K?lauea volcano kickstarted a months-long eruption that would turn out to be the most destructive in its history. Its Halema’uma’u summit crater progressively collapsed and consumed its surroundings, while magma draining from below fed rivers and fountains of lava streaming out of its eastern flanks. Ultimately, the volcano expelled some 320,000 Olympic-sized swimming pools’ worth of lava. Like similar eruptions around the world, those featuring a cauldron-like summit and plenty of lava, it was assumed the magma reservoir feeding K?lauea’s mighty convulsion had run empty. But a new study published in Science this month has provided a baffling plot twist. Based on the changing dimensions of the volcano throughout the eruption, as little as 11 percent and no more than 33 percent of that magma reservoir was drained by the end of the eruption.

What You Should Know About Getting a Career In Astronomy/Astrophysics
This video will cover how to get into space research (such as astrophysics or astronomy) and some research that is going on. For those looking into space related majors, your best options are astronomy and astrophysics. However, as an undergrad you will usually just start as a physics major then pick a more specific discipline in grad school. You also will need to get a PhD if you want to do work in astrophysics or astronomy. There really aren't jobs in these fields for those with just bachelor's degrees. Although the field is very competitive, if you have a true interest for the subject, most people will tell you to pursue it. Even if you don't land a job that you want, astrophysicists and astronomers can find work in other fields such as finance, engineering, software development, teaching, and more. ***************************************************

This beautiful space cocktail is constantly moving around our sun. But it could all be torn apart if just one stray black hole decided to drop by… Yes, there’s been a lot of talk about black holes lately since Kathrine Bouman figured out how to take a picture of one. The closest black hole to our solar system is 10 to 13 times the mass of our sun, and it’s located 3,000 light years away. But what would happen if a black hole came into our solar system?

Dear World, Back to space! This should be a reminder of how far we have come, and how much there is still to explore. Our species has its eyes in the solar system, while we still stay at home for now. While we perform incredible tasks in exploring, the results sometimes vanish in the huge mess of information we devour daily. No wonder people are wondering what is reality and what is fake. Because it takes time to find out and understand. People who do not care will believe what they want anyway. Of course there is tons of interesting data, but there is a huge interest in pictures, because they transport a feeling of being there. It really shows that we want to go.

The Solar System Is Not Like You Think It Is
The Earth is round, Mercury is the hottest planet, and the Sun is yellow. It would seem that these are all simple, undeniable facts known even to those with no real knowledge of astronomy. However, it’s time to think again. TIMESTAMPS Does the Moon have a dark side? 0:23 Is the temperature of Mercury higher than on other planets? 1:01 Is the Sun just a big ball of fire? 2:01 Is the Sun really yellow? 2:50 Would a human being explode in space without a space suit? 3:41 Is the Earth further from the Sun in winter than in summer? 4:48 Is the Earth perfectly spherical? 6:03 SUMMARY - The Sun shines and warms both the visible and invisible parts of the Moon. The truth is that the period the Moon takes to revolve on its axis coincides with the amount of time it takes to orbit the Earth. That’s why we only see one side of it. - Mercury is closest to the Sun; therefore, its surface temperature must be higher than all the other planets. However, the hottest planet in the Solar System is actually Venus, despite the fact it’s 31,070,000 miles (50 million km) further away from the Sun than its neighbor. - What we think of as fire is, in fact, energy in the form of heat and light, produced by the thermonuclear reactions occurring in the star’s core. A thermonuclear reaction involves changing some elements into others, and it’s accompanied by the ejection of heat and light energy. - Why do human eyes see the Sun as yellow? It’s all down to Earth’s atmosphere. As is well known, light which has a long wavelength, in the yellow and red part of the spectrum, passes through the atmosphere best of all. Light in shorter wavelengths, in the green to violet part of the spectrum, gets dissipated to a greater degree by the atmosphere. - Our skin is flexible enough to keep all of our internal organs in place. The walls of the blood vessels would also prevent the blood from boiling thanks to their elasticity. Moreover, in the absence of external pressure in the space en

Solar System Video
Solar System Video showing the 8 planets of the Solar System orbiting the Sun. As we move out from Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars, towards the gas giant planets of the outer Solar System, each of the planets take longer to orbit the sun. The planets in order of size are; Mercury Mars Venus Earth Neptune Uranus Saturn Jupiter When listed in terms of distance from the Sun, the order is as follows; Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune. All of the planets orbit the Sun in an anti-clockwise direction. Most also rotate on their axis in an anti-clockwise direction. The exceptions to this rule are; Uranus - Which rotates on it's end like a bowling ball Venus - Which rotates clockwise, but very slowly. Venus rotates so slowly that a day on planet Venus is longer than a year! The planet with the fastest rotation in Jupiter, which rotates every 10 hours. So fast that it causes the planet to flatten out a little. In this Solar System video, the distance between the planets is not to scale. In the real Solar System the distances are vast. The size of the planets in this Solar System video is also just an indication of their relative size. In reality Jupiter is many more times the size of the Earth. The planets would also not create shadows on each other as they do in this video. Other bodies that exist in the Solar System but are not included in this Solar System video include, The Dwarf Planets (of which Pluto is one), The asteroid belt (which sits between the orbit of Mars and Jupiter), and the Ort Cloud (which sits beyond the orbit of Neptune)

What's Inside A Black Hole?
What's Inside A Black Hole? Subscribe: holes are mysterious and bizarre objects in the universe that really have no explanation. In fact, we hardly know anything about what lies inside of a black hole. We know and understand what we see on the outside of a black hole, but we have no way of going inside one to take a look at what is really happening. Even if we sent a probe inside a black hole, it would not survive the journey, and there would be no way that the probe could transmit a signal outside once it had been sucked inside. This is because a black hole is the product of mass being squeezed together so densely, and so tightly, that it creates a gravitational pull that is so strong, that not even light can escape its grasp. Supermassive black holes with masses millions to billions of times that of the sun are thought to lurk at the hearts of all galaxies in the universe. You may notice that when you see a photo of a spiral galaxy, such as the Milky Way, in the center of the galaxy is a giant mass of light, which many people would think looks like a massive sun. But this is not light coming from the black hole itself. Remember, that light cannot escape the heavy gravitational pull. Instead, the light we see comes from the magnetic fields near a spinning black hole that propel electrons outward in a jet along the rotation axis. The electrons produce bright radio waves. Quasars are believed to produce their energy from massive black holes in the center of the galaxies in which the quasars are located. Because quasars are so bright, they drown out the light from all the other stars in the same galaxy. You’re probably asking, ‘well, what’s a quasar?’ A Quasar is the short name for ‘quasi-stellar object’ and is a very highly energetic object surrounding an actively feeding Supermassive Black Hole. In more basic terms, the Supermassive Black Hole in the middle of a galaxy feeds intermittently. As it feeds, gas swirls around i

The First Ever Black Hole Image Finally Released
It was the image that broke the Internet in April 2019. The subject? One that had managed to evade the paparazzi for as long as people have theorized about its existence. It was the first photo ever taken of a black hole! It's a monumental event, not only for scientists but for the public too! Up until recently, black holes had only technically been a theory. Well, astronomers were pretty sure they exist. For decades they’ve been watching the pull and push of black holes that influenced neighboring planets and stars. They’ve even been listening to the powerful gravitational waves that appear after supermassive black holes collide. But up till now, astrophysicists have always lacked that final proof of their existence.

Why this black hole photo is such a big deal
This is an updated version of a video we published in 2016 about the Event Horizon Telescope, an international collaboration to image a black hole for the first time in human history. On April 10, 2019, the team announced their results: They had successfully imaged the supermassive black hole in the center of the galaxy m87, which is nearly 54 million light-years away from us. They were able to achieve unprecedented resolution using very long baseline interferometry, which combines the observations of multiple radio telescopes across the globe. The team wanted to find out whether Einstein's Theory of General Relativity holds up in the extreme environment of black holes, and the results do, in fact, seem to be consistent with the predictions. In the future, we may see more and shaper images of black holes as the team targets smaller wavelengths of light and recruits more telescopes. Eventually, they may include an orbiting space telescope.

This Black Hole is Coming Towards Earth!
Andromeda is a spiral galaxy, located 2.5 Million light-years away from us. At the centre of this galaxy there is a massive Black Hole. This Black Hole is so big that it's 100 million times massive than our sun. According to scientists, this Black Hole is coming towards us with the speed of 110 km per second. In 4.5 billion years from now andromeda will collide with our galaxy and when that happens, this Black Hole may hit the Earth.

How to Understand the Image of a Black Hole
We have just seen the first image of a black hole, the supermassive black hole in the galaxy M87 with a mass 6.5 billion times that of our sun. But what is that image really showing us? Using my every day intuition I wondered: will we see the "shadow" of the black hole even if we're looking edge on at the accretion disk? The answer is yes because the black hole warps space-time, so even if we wouldn't normally be able to see the back of the accretion disk, we can in this case because its light is bent up and over the black hole. Similarly we can see light from the bottom of the back of the accretion disk because it's bent under the bottom of the black hole. Plus there are additional images from light that does a half turn around the black hole leading to the inner rings. What about the black hole "shadow" itself? Well initially I thought it can't be an image of the event horizon because it's so much bigger (2.6 times bigger). But if you trace back the rays, you find that for every point in the shadow, there is a corresponding ray that traces back to the event horizon. So in fact from our one observing location, we see all sides of the event horizon simultaneously! In fact infinitely many of these images, accounting for the virtually infinite number of times a photon can orbit the black hole before falling in. The edge of the shadow is due to the photon sphere - the radius at which light goes around in closed orbits. If a light ray coming in at an oblique angle just skims the photon sphere and then travels on to our telescopes, that is the closest 'impact parameter' possible, and it occurs at sqrt(27)/2*r_s

NASA Captured First Ever Image of a Black Hole!
Black Holes are known to swallow everything coming in their path but that's not the end. With time they they emit enormous amounts of energy. In 2015 Hubble Telescope captured something that shocked the entire world. It was a burst of plasma jet 260 million light years away in space coming from an unknown source. Calculations showed that the jet was travelling at 98% the speed of light. Scientists finally concluded that they have captured a plasma burst coming from a super-massive Black Hole. Which is located inside a galaxy 260 million light-years away.

For the very first time NASA captured a black hole while it was ripping apart a star. In 2005, Astronomers saw a energy jet coming from 150 Million light-years away. It was moving at one-fourth the speed of light. They studied it for more than a decade and concluded that it is coming from a super-massive Black Hole which is 20 million times bigger than our sun. As black Hole was eating the star, this energy burst was being erupted.

Black Holes: Crash Course Astronomy #33
We’ve covered a lot of incredible stuff, but this week we’re talking about the weirdest objects in space: BLACK HOLES. Stellar mass black holes form when a very massive star dies, and its core collapses. The core has to be more than about 2.8 times the Sun’s mass to form a black hole. Black holes come in different sizes, but for all of them, the escape velocity is greater than the speed of light, so nothing can escape, not matter or light. They don’t wander the Universe gobbling everything down around them; their gravity is only really intense very close to them. Tides near a stellar mass black hole will spaghettify you, and time slows down when you get near a black hole — not that this helps much if you’re falling in.

A Journey to the End of the Universe
Could humans ever travel to other galaxies within their lifetime? The immense scale of the Universe seems to prohibit such voyages, after all the nearest galaxy is so far away that it takes light itself - the fastest thing in the Universe - 2.5 million years to complete the trip. Remarkably, there is a trick that might allow humans to accomplish this feat - join us today as we step onboard the constantly accelerating spaceship!

Scientists Just Found the Loneliest Galaxy in the Entire Universe
What’s the most lonely place you can imagine right now? An abandoned building? A deserted island? But let’s ramp up the scale beyond the skies and look at the loneliest places in the Universe – the Void Galaxies. It appears that astronomers may have just found the most solitary of them all. The Void Galaxy. That name suggests only the strangest placement of such galaxies. They’re alone and surrounded by enormous volumes of absolutely nothing. Just a dark void, with no stars, no planets, no matter at all. You may argue that everything in the Universe is surrounded by dark space. But have you ever heard about the Bo?tes void which is nearly 330 million light-years in diameter? IMESTAMPS: The Void Galaxy 0:28 The Great Nothing...
