LIFE ON OTHER PLANETS
Life on other planets is almost impossible, the Milky Way is only one of millions of galaxies which makes it nearly impossible for there to be life on other planets. And I strongly believe that there is life in our solar system too!

In Britain, residents will be able to find out the level of air pollution in the area before buying a house
British real estate agencies will now provide people ,who wish to purchase housing ,with information on the level of air pollution in a certain area.
The media shared that many Britons bought expensive housing, not knowing that it was located in an area with a high level of pollution. Researchers urge the government to monitor air quality continuously in every residential area.
They also insist on the introduction of stringent restrictions recommended by the World Health Organization, which will help reduce pollution.
According to scientists from the Royal College of Physicians, dirty air kills about 40,000 people a year in the UK.
Glasgow ready to accept Euro in 2021
This was reported by the press service of the Scottish Football Association.
The organizing committee of the European Championship in Glasgow has confirmed its readiness to held Euro matches in 2021, according to the press service of the Scottish Football Association. The tournament, to be held in 12 cities in 11 European countries, was postponed from 2020 to 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Earlier in the British media there was information that Scotland could refuse to host Euro 2020 in 2021.
The final announcement of the Euro hosts will take place on May 27. In Glasgow there will be three tournament games in group D and one game of the 1/8 finals.
Found evidence of the hot bowels of Mars
Scientists claim that a meteorite formed deep beneath the surface of Mars is the first chemical evidence of magma convection (its constant movement) in the mantle layer.
For many years, we thought Mars was dead. A dusty, dry, barren planet where nothing happens. Only the winds blow. However, evidence has recently begun to appear that there is volcanic and geological activity on Mars.
Crystals of olivine (rock-forming mineral) in the Tissint meteorite, which fell to the Earth in 2011, could be formed only at temperature differences of about 574-582 million years ago. And this process can take place on the Red Planet today.
“Previously, there was no evidence of convection on Mars,” explains planetary geologist Nicola Marie of the University of Glasgow. “This is the first study that proves activity in the bowels of Mars from a chemical point of view and using a real Martian sample.”
When Marie and his colleagues began to study olivine crystals in the Tissint meteorite, they discovered something strange: the crystals were distributed unevenly in a piece of rock, forming phosphorus-rich veins. The same veins are found on Earth - a trap of solute. It was unexpected to find them on Mars.
“This happens when the crystal growth rate exceeds the rate at which phosphorus can be evenly distributed throughout the rock, penetrating its crystalline structure,” explained Nicola Marie. Traces of nickel and cobalt have confirmed previous evidence that a piece of rock came from the depths of the Martian crust - from 40 to 80 kilometers below the surface of Mars.
The Martian mantle probably had a temperature of about 1560 degrees Celsius. The Earth’s mantle (1650 degrees Celsius) 2.5-4 million years ago had the same temperature.
This does not mean that Mars is like the early Earth. But this means that Mars could store a lot of heat. “I think Mars can still be volcanically active - the results of the study indicate this,” said Marie. “We may not observe a volcanic eruption on Mars for the next 5 million years, but this does not mean that the planet is inactive. This may mean that the periods between eruptions on Mars and the Earth are different. "
In Britain, the corona virus has caused a deficiency of pets
Britain has faced an acute deficiency of domestic animals due to the virus. Lonely British who found themselves in isolation lined up to get pets.
According to breeders, need for animals has raised to 140 percent in April. At the same time, one can not even hope to get the long-awaited friend so quick - waiting lists usually consist of 100 to 400 people who want them too.
In turn, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Violence against Animals recorded an increase in the amount of visits to their shelters by 600 percent. It clears that especially quarantined Britons are interested in cocker poodles (cockapu), French bulldogs and other dog breeds, which are relatively easy to care for.
Residents of Britain reported about huge black cats who attack sheep
Photographs of a large black cat hiding in the bushes were published by residents of the village of Tedburn St. Mary. In addition, traces of paws were observed, presumably belonging to the same predator, next to the remains of a deer. The forest near the village is now rarely visited by residents due to the regime of self-isolation and this, as local residents suggest, could give courage to large predators.
Dr. Terry Moore, a specialist in large predators of the feline family, said that reports of large cats, presumably cougars and panthers, had been received several times before from Hertfordshire, a four-hour drive from Devon.
Among locals there is an opinion that the huge cats, which they call "Beasts of Bodmin" and "Beasts of Dartmoor", have been living in the swamps of Devon and Cornwall for more than a decade. In July 2019, the owner of the zoo in Dartmoor said that he personally observed three cougars freely walking in the wild, which should have been transferred to the zoo at least three decades ago.
It is believed that panther and cougar could be let out by circus artist Mary Chipperfield after the closure of her zoo in Plymouth in 1978. Since 2000, more than 200 reports of large cats walking through swamps have been recorded in Devon and Cornwall.
There is a new painting in the English infirmary, it is dedicated to doctors
A new painting by the famous street artist Banksy with gratitude to doctors appeared in an English infirmary in Southampton.
A monochrome picture of 1 square meter was hung in the lobby of the infirmary near the emergency room.
It portrays a boy playing with a nurse-superhero at the trash can, in which there are also Batman and Spiderman.
Banksy left a fraze: "Thanks for everything you do. I hope this will brighten up this place, even though it is black and white."
English scientists have taught drones to fly in the dark
Have you ever wondered how mosquitoes fly in the dark? And why don't they stumble upon trees and walls? After all, the organs of vision or echolocation, like bats, these insects of the diptera do not use. Researchers at the University of Leeds in the UK understood the mechanism of “night vision” of mosquitoes, calling it an “aerodynamic image,” Science writes.
Insects in the dark use streams of air created by the flapping of their own wings. The jets of air change pressure and speed when an obstacle appears in front, and the mosquito feels these changes thanks to Johnston's organ - a set of receptors at the base of the “antennas” on the head. The maximum distance that a mosquito can “feel” is about 20 lengths of its wings. It was previously believed that this spatial gap is smaller.
Scientists have created a mechanical analog of the mechanism - a set of probes and sensors that record pressure drops. The development is inexpensive and reliable, it can be used on drones. The tests of the new system fixed to the drone were successful, the aircraft detected obstacles in the dark and circled them.
England will allow meetings in parks and sports games
“Boris Johnson announced a“contingent plan ” for opening a society after quarantine, which from this Wednesday will allow the inhabitants of England to spend more time on the street. They outline to permit residents to go out without time limits — for physical training, relaxing in parks and sports (the latter only with those who live together), ” the massage said.
Also, citizens who do not live together will be permitted to meet, provided that it will be in the parks and in compliance with 2 meters of the distance. Workers who, by the nature of their work, cannot work from home will be able to return to work. But the rest is asked to keep on to work remotely. People are asked, as before, not to leave home unnecessarily and to avoid travel by public transport.
While this is a preliminary plan, the final decision should appear before the end of Monday.
Plans set to ramp up coronavirus testing in Leeds.
UK government is planning to increase the number of testing in Leeds with new drive-thru testing centers at Temple Green Park and Ride. The plans are set to conduct at least 1,000 tests a day at this center. These testing centers have been opened to test more and more workers in the city. Leeds City Council has reported that over 57,000 health workers will be assigned to expand testing at this drive-thru center. Mobile testing units and kits will be sent to the center to ramp up coronavirus testing.
The government has announced that anyone above 65 and key workers showing any symptoms of COVID-19 can take the test at this center. Currently, 1,300 cases have been confirmed of coronavirus along with 358 fatalities between March 27 and April 28.
