Things you must know about SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY and the FUTURE PART 1

Do you know that sunlight has weight, that there are earthquakes(or moonquakes? in the moon, and that white sand is made up of bones of dead animals? Do you know that in the future, medicine will be manufactured not by drug factories but by special cows and that people may soon eat miniature pigs and cattle? Indeed, the world is changing and we are changing in them. And we better get a dose of new things, and new information that are revolutionizing our world and the way we see it. Otherwise, we'll end up lost in our own time and space a victim of future shock. According to the science journal OMNI here are some things you must know about science, technology and the future. Beginnings: 1. SCIENCE: is the orderly arrangement of knowledge about the universe and its workings, derived from careful observation, recording, analysis, and repeated testing of conclusions. 2. TECHNOLOGY: is science put to practical use. 3. THE AGE OF THE UNIVERSE: Most scientist today put the age of the universe at 10 to 20 billion years. However, some scientist split the difference and say the universe is 15 billion years old, based on evidence and research as well as supposition. 4. ASTROLOGY: is not and never has been a science. 5. EARTH. The earth, scientist generally agree, is about 4.6 billion years old or 10 billion or so years younger than the universe. Questions kids ask 6. THE MOON IN MOTION. The moon has earthquakes or more accurately, moonquakes. Most of these very weak quakes are caused by tidal forces resulting from increases in the earth's gravity as the moon moves closer to the earth during part of its orbit. Others most likely occur when moist or partly molten rock below the moon's surface moves. 7. THUNDER: is caused by lightning and the two are inseparable. A lightning bolt heats the air around it to 50,000 F, and this hot air does what every hot things does it expands. This incredibly fast expansion produces a sound similar to a sonic boom.

Sunlight does NOT have wieght, because it is a wave and there for has no legible weight Also earthquakes are caused by moving plates in the earths surface, but since the moon isnt split up into plates the are NO "moonquakes" Thats as far as i read, but theres probably more :(

according to the photon theory - light has weight. scientists have theorised that photons are particle-wave - i.e. have both properties of waves and particles. try to prove that they are only waves - believe me - this has already been done a long time ago. the moon is probably also split into plates - i dunno - someone has to find something about the contours of the moon.
