I hope it never happens to the magnitude depicted by Emerich.

That was a pretty good movie. But the things depicted in it were totally fictional. Much of the weather effects and climate changes shown were completely impossible. But we may in fact see drastic changes in climate in the future. Europe is especially at risk if something dramatically alters the currents in the North Atlantic; that is what keeps Europe with a temperate climate. Without that, Europe would get much colder. But most of the effect of climate change will take decades or centuries to fully manifest. Even the shortest-scale changes would probably not take less than a year. So the world changing over the course of a single week is not something we ever need to worry about.

No, but I know the Russian Cyrillic alphabet (mostly) so I can read the sound of words and figure out cognates or the few words that I do know. Also, most websites share common design elements and are largely image based, so even if you can't read the text you can still figure things out by the images or context. And if none of that works you can simply click a link and see where it goes happy

Today/yesterday (7 December 2012) is the 40th anniversary of the capturing of the famous Blue Marble photograph - and also the last time humans ever departed Earth for another world.

A nice video has been made which highlights the unique and important perspective viewing Earth from afar has given to us. Most of the commentary is from astronauts.





On an unrelated note, this was the first image of Earth ever captured from space (24 October 1946)
