In space, no one can hear you scream because it’s a vacuum, and sound — as we know it here on Earth — can’t travel through nothing. However, that doesn’t mean there are no other sounds. In fact there’s a whole field dedicated to researching the hidden sounds of the universe. It’s called asteroseismology. Asteroseismologists measure the vibrations of stars.

North Korea is known for a lot of things, like human rights abuses, totalitarianism, and prison camps to name a few. But one thing North Korea certainly isn’t known for is its cooking.

September 2, 2017

North Korea has a reputation for being the most reclusive country on Earth. Because of that, there’s so much about daily life in North Korea that we don’t know, and what little information we do gather comes from refugees and the very few tourists who are permitted to visit the country each year.
