How We Could Survive On Mars – Feat. Andy Weir

Andy Weir is the author of The Martian and Artemis, and he has spent a lot of time thinking about traveling to and living on Mars. So after my previous video that discussed the dangers of going to Mars, Andy joins me to discuss the ideas that could make living there possible.

White Holes

Black holes are a singularity from which nothing can escape, even light. A white hole is the opposite. A singularity that nothing can reach. In other words – a black hole reversed in time.

They’re theoretical and have never been seen, but according to the physics, they could exist.

5 Cryptids That Could Actually Exist

Our culture and mythology is littered with unknown creatures and monsters, known as cryptids. While most are misidentified animals or tall tales, there are some that could actually exist. Here are 5 of them.

The Orang Pendek is a human-like primate thought to exist in Indonesia with a strangely human face – thought to possibly be a new species of orangutan.

The Nunda is a large cat species thought to live in Tanzania. It was blamed for a series of deaths in the 1920s.

The Dobhar-chú is a predatory otter-like sea creature from Ireland primarily around Sraheens Lough in County Mayo.

The Chupacabra is famous at this point for raiding livestock in the Southwest US and Mexico. Chupacabra means “Goat Sucker” in Spanish.

The Acurinis are thought to be an uncontacted tribe in the Amazon. What makes them different is they apparently have a very out of place European look to them. Their possible existence spawned many legends of a lost tribe.
