A year ago Nasa recognized a question, that could be a comet or a space rock, on a way towards Earth. The space organization has said the strange question will securely pass Earth at a separation of about 32 million miles (51 million kilometers) on February 25th.
Nasa confirmed that the mysterious 2016 WF9 is approaching Earth and we should be able to see it orbit the planet next month.
The asteroid, named 2016 WF9, was found a year ago. Throughout 4.9 Earth-years, it has voyage internal, going added to the principle space rock repertoire and the circle of Mars until it will swing simply inside Earth’s own circle.
The question, which is an obscured line between a space rock and a comet, was found by Nasa’s NEOWISE mission. Self-declared Russian cosmologist Dr Dyomin Damir Zakharovich said it is heading straight towards our planet.
‘The question they call WF9 left the Nibiru framework in October when Nibiru started turning counter clockwise around the sun,’ he said. ‘From that point forward, Nasa has known it will hit Earth. Yet, they are just telling individuals now.’
In the event that the space rock hit Earth, he says, it could decimate urban areas or cause a tidal wave. ‘We are all in hazard.’
Nasa does not think the question will hit Earth, rather it is stating it will pass about 32 million miles (51 million kilometers) far from the planet.
Emperor Qin Shi Huangdi of China (259 BC – 210 BC) wanted to live forever, so he built a huge burial mound to protect his body in the afterlife.Born in 259 B.C., first son to the king of Qin, one of six independent kingdoms inside modern China. These kingdoms had been warring for more than 200 years, but through a combination of military strength, strategy and natural disasters, Qin Shi Huang conquered them all, proclaiming himself not just a king, but also an emperor — the first of China.
The Terracotta Army was created by China’s first emperor, Qin Shi Huang, who began the construction of the army in 246 BC after he (then aged 13) ascended the throne.
Thousands of years later, the soldiers are still standing and showcase an extraordinary level of craftsmanship and artistry from 2,200 years ago.
1) In 1974, a group of farmers digging wells near Xi’an, China stumbled upon one of the most shocking archaeological discoveries of all time. For almost four decades, archaeologists have been excavating the site. So far, they’ve uncovered at least 8,000 CLAY SOLDIER guard the tomb, as well as 130 CHARIOTS and 670 HORSES.
2) The burial mound is believed to contain booby traps to protect his body, which is also surrounded by rivers of liquid mercury which the ancient Chinese believed could bestow immortality.
3) Every Soldier’s face was designed separately so no two warriors look the same. The life-size terracotta solider they dug out of the ground turned out to be just one of an army of thousands, each utterly unique, with individual clothing, hair and facial features. The statues are 175–190 cm tall. Every one differs in gestures and facial expressions, some even with color showing. It reveals much about the Qin Empire’s technology, military, arts, culture, and military.
4) Qin Shi Huangdi, searched obsessively for the secret of eternal life. And perhaps he found it; although he died aged only 50, the extraordinary legacy of his burial chambers lives on.
Ancient writings say the emperor created an entire underground kingdom and palace, complete with a ceiling mimicking the night sky, set with pearls as stars. Pits full of terracotta concubines have never been discovered, though experts predict they exist somewhere in the complex.
Mosquito bites are the itchy bumps that appear after mosquitoes use their mouthparts to puncture your skin and feed on your blood.
The itchy welt that forms on the skin when a person has been ‘bitten’ by a mosquito is, in fact, an allergic reaction to the insect’s saliva, which it injects into the skin in order to prevent its victim’s blood clotting.

A mosquito cannot actually bite because its jaws do not open, but the middle of its proboscis has six needlelike parts, called – stylets. These are protected by the insect’s flexible lower lip, or labium, most of the time.

When a mosquito ‘bites’ the lip slides out of the way like a sleeve as the stylets puncture the skin. The channels made by the stylets allow saliva to flow into the wounds, thus allowing the insect to sip blood more easily. Only female mosquitoes bite and only those of a few of the 3,000 or more species attack animals and people

Scratching the bump only makes this worse because it causes more irritation and inflammation of the sight, resulting in your immune system thinking it needs more antibodies to get rid of the foreign protein. So the more you scratch, the more it will swell; the itchier it will get; and the longer it will last.
Some of the worst diseases that people and animals suffer are spread by mosquitoes. Some species are carriers of such serious infections as Dengue fever, yellow fever, malaria and filariasis.

We all known that ‘Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.’ Though whatever happens around us has a scientific reason. But does everything that happens have an Answer? India has been a place of mystery, myth and magic since old times. But here is a collection of some weird things happening in India which really don’t have any answer. It’s upon you that what you want to believe it as a mystery, a myth or magic.!
1) The Mind-Boggling Bird Suicide Phenomenon of Jatinga Valley – Assam
Jatinga is a small village located in Assam, a state in northeastern India. The village is lush green and scenic, surrounded by serene mountains. But that’s not what it’s famous for. In fact, Jatinga is well-known for an entirely different reason – its Bird Mystery.
The Bird Mystery is a unique phenomenon that occurs at Jatinga between September and November each year. During these late monsoon months, several migratory and local birds commit mass suicide at the village. Just after sunset, between 7 and 10 pm, hundreds of birds descend from the sky, plummeting to their deaths by crashing into buildings and trees. Since birds aren’t known to be suicidal, the phenomenon has baffled villagers, visitors and scientists alike. For many years, locals believed that evil spirits living in the skies were responsible for bringing downÂ the birds.
2) Red Rain in Kottayam – Kerala
The first well-documented reports of red rain came from the southern state of India, Kerala in the year 2001 though some reference of such incident have been recovered from the year 1818. After 2001, there had been reports of red rain in Kerala in 2011 and 2012. The unusual phenomenon also occurred in Sri Lanka in 2012 as well.
There are many theories about this rain. The famous ones are:
- First it was thought that the colour came from the burst of a meteor that mingled in with rain clouds.
- A waterspout traveling over the sea might have brought the red rain, red representing the blood of fishes or bird.
- Chemicals released by the factories which make acid rain.
- Government of India believed that the winds carrying pollen grains or airborne spores from the local algae might be responsible, that was their final verdict.
- A research at Gandhi University in India gained international press coverage when the scientists there said that they have believe that the red rain contains cells which are extraterrestrial as they have the potential to grow at the temperature of 300Â°C yet they have no DNA nor RNA.
According to historical record, red rain has been reported in the United Kingdom but Britishers mostly believe in dust particles or water spout for the unusual event. What causes the Kerala’s blood rain is still unknown as everyone in India has their own version.
3) Twin Town – Kerala
There is an extraordinary factor about this village in Malappuram, Kerala. It has the strikingly large number of twin births that it witnesses. It is now called as Kodinhi, or the Village of Twins, and has become one of the mysterious places in India!
Once you set foot into this village, you’ll start seeing doubles of almost everyone! Kodinhi is currently home to overÂ 200 pair of twins and two sets of triplets. And that’s not all! Kodinhi’s women who are married outside the village also end up having twins or triplets.
Doctors believe that the reason for this strange phenomenon lies in the chemicals of the water in the area.
4) Ladakh Magnetic Hill
Can your car get a life of its own due to some unknown natural phenomena? It seems to be the case at the Magnetic Hill located 30 kilometers outside Leh on the way to Alchi and Kargil.
A sign at this spot invites you to stop your car over a white square marked on the road, switch it off and leave it in neutral. Follow the instructions and your car actually starts moving on its own at speeds of 10-20 km per hour. Ok, so this was downhill and it was just following the rules of gravity. Turn your car in the opposite direction and repeat the steps. It will start moving uphill.
I had heard of this phenomenon but had to see it to believe it. And it turned out to be exactly as described here. And that too in a heavy car like the Scorpio overloaded with baggage and passengers.
It may not be as notorious as the Bermuda Triangle, but pilots play it safe by not flying any aircraft over Magnetic Hill according to an Army official.
The Brihatheeshwarar temple is one of the most famous, architectural marveled and historically significant Shiva temple known to all the Hindus located in Tanjore. It is one of the largest Hindu temples in South India and is highly treasured that its considered as one of UNESCO’s world heritage site. The structure of the temple is enclosed with wonderful design and was constructed between the year 1003 and 1010.
A study in architecture or history is certainly incomplete without a mention of the Tanjore Brihadeeshwara Temple. This imposing structure was built by Raja Raja Cholan and his sister Kundavai, both ardent devotees of Lord Shiva. It was constructed by the King at the height of the Chola reign to signify his power and strength.
In this post, we will look into some unique, interesting and unknown facts about this temple, which makes this special religious structure, even more significant.
1) The famous Brihatheeshwarar Temple was initially referred to as the Rajarajeshwar Temple. It was the Marathas who gave the temple its current name. They also called it the ‘Great Ishwara Temple’
2) The Tanjore big temple contains more than 100 underground passages to various places. The underground passages also contain some secret passage that leads to various places like the Palace of RajaRaja Chola and also to other important places. The underground passages lead to the other temples and also to various places in and around Tanjore. Most of the underground passages were sealed and if the people choose the wrong passage then there are possibilities that the path may also lead to the dangers. It is widely known that this can also be a trap for the kingdom safety of RajaRaja Chola.
3) The Nandi statue located at the entrance of the temple is said to be carved out of a single rock.
4) The king Raja Raja Cholan built the temple after his visit to Sri Lanka. The king was inspired after witnessing the Vedic structures built by the Hindu kings.
5) Inscriptions in the temple point towards Kunjara Mallan Raja Raja Perunthachan as the chief architect of the temple. His successors survive to this day and practice the art of Vastu or Vastu Shastra.
6) The big Tanjore temple is said to have more than hundred underground passages that connects to various other places. Nowadays, most of the passages are sealed. In the earlier days, the passages were used by sages, Kings and Queens to roam about different temples and places, especially during auspicious festivals like Deepavali, Maha Shivarathri and Makar Sankranti.
7) The temple is said to have a huge cap stone on top of it, and the weight of the stone is said to be 80 tonnes. The Garbhagriha where the Shiva lingam is located is said to generate large amount of electro magnetic energy. The 80 tonne stone acts a repulsive force and channels the energy to the inner areas of the temple to sustain its piousness and divinity. The positive energy radiant within in the temple structure is said to have a calming, soothing effect both mentally and physically on the devotees.
8) For the construction of the temple, more than 130,000 tonnes of granite was used. Surprisingly, these heavy stones were brought down from a place that was located 50 miles away from the Brihadeeshwar temple.
9) “The other unknown fact about Brihadeeshwara temple is that the massive Linga was inspired by Rajaraja’s quest to have a even bigger MAHALINGA, after seeing the Thiruvidaimaruthoor Mahalingam – Raja Baradwaj”
