GRS 1915 is an x-ray binary star system consisting of a star and a black-hole, and it’s got a heartbeat.
Well, a pulsating x-ray light that is, one pulse every 50 seconds.
And you’re like, “bro, what’s CAUSING this pulse?, that’s strange and I’m interested in science so I need to know..”
Turns out the black hole (spinning at 1,150 times per sec) is sucking in the matter from it’s companion star at 50% the speed of light though letting some of that energy escape. “The jet of materials being ejected is occasionally choked off by a hot wind blowing off the accretion disk. The wind deprives the jet of materials needed to sustain it. When the wind dies down, the jet returns (wiki)”, giving us the “pulse.”
For Atlantis, Disney needed a new language for the Atlantean people. To do this, Disney hired Mark Okrand, the man who also created the famous Klingon and Vulcan for the Star Trek series. In the Atlantean language, Mark Okrand’s main source for it’s roots and stems of its words are Proto-Indo-European,but as Okrand also described it as being the “tower of babel” or “root dialect” for all languages in the world, he also used ancient Chinese, Latin, Greek, Biblical Hebrew, along with many other ancient languages or their reconstructions. As such, you can actually learn to write and speak the language!
