Danish architectural studio Cebra announced the project of building the world’s largest indoor ski resort.  Denmark has no elevated mountains because of its location in the northern region, so they decided to design this resort. The architects proposed a six-pointed “snowflake” of three bridges, crossed at equal angles in Randers.

Nuclear Testing Sites Around the World and Their Dangers

North Korea has announced their 3rd nuclear test which is aimed at the United States. Yea this seems like pretty serious news, but our leaders don’t seem too concerned. I’m pretty sure that if North Korea ever tried to send a nuke our way, we would immediately shoot it out of the sky and send 20 of them back in their direction. I’m not an expert on this stuff, but I don’t see North Korea attempting to blow us up any time soon. They know how terrible that decision would turn out for them.

But to hear that our enemy is testing their nuclear weapons could be very scary to some people and that is very understandable. Countries have been testing nuclear weapons since the 1940s, and no one has yet to attempt a nuclear strike anywhere remotely close to us. People should be more concerned about the environmental/health problems caused by the testing rather than actually getting bombed.

Why I Still Think Mitt Romney is Going to Lose This Election

Way back in July, I came to the conclusion that Mitt Romney was going to lose this election.

When I came to that conclusion he still had not picked a vice presidential candidate and he was still pretty far behind in the polls. At the end of August I published a re-post that included Paul Ryan’s selection which only reinforced my main point. Read more of this post

The Large Hadron Collider 2

CERN isn’t done just yet.

After discovering the smallest particle that could ever exist, the team at CERN is now considering scaling up, with an even larger brand new particle collider. The Geneva based team discovered what they believe is the Higgs Boson, also known as the “God Particle” this summer but they aren’t completely satisfied with their findings. The proposal features a new underground accelerator with a circumference of 50 miles, three times the size of the current one under Geneva. Read more of this post

Strange Place: Geothermal Spa Powered by Lava Flow can Cure Skin Disease

 Strange Place: Geothermal Spa Powered by Lava Flow can Cure Skin Disease

Blue Lagoon Spa

Geothermal Energy has become an increasingly important element in today’s world. This type of energy is generated and stored in the Earth.

Its odd source of energy has given it a place in our strange place collection.

One of the largest attractions in Iceland is powered by Geothermal energy.

Blue Lagoon is a  spa located in a lava field in Grindavik on the Reykjanes Peninsula (which rests between two continents as the Euro-Asian and American tectonic plates meet at Blue Lagoon) and it is powered by 100% geothermal energy.

Guests bath and relax in Blue Lagoons geothermal sea water which is known for its positive effects on skin. In some cases, the Blue Lagoon Spa was said to have cured people of various types of skin disease. So this strange place is also a miracle working place.

It has also proven to relieve stress from everyday life. About 400,000 people come to this spa annually because of its positive effects on the body,mind and spirit.

So how exactly does this spa use geothermal energy to power it?

It’s pretty complicated, but learning howthis energy works is essential to our planets future.

First off, steamy waters are part of lava formation, and this large swimming pool is heated with the run-off water from a nearby geothermal power plant.

This super heated water is vented from the ground near a lava flow and is used to run turbines that generate electricity.

After passing through the turbines, the steam and very hot water passes through a heat exchanger to provide heat for a municipal hot water heating system.

This is when the water is fed into the lagoon for users to bath and relax in. The water reaches 104 degrees farenheit, but it is obviously safe for people to swim in. The water is also VERY rich in minerals.

The Blue Lagoon Spa also operates a research and development facility to help find cures for other skin ailments using this mineral rich water.

400,000 people a year swimming in this pool may have you thinking that it might be dirty, but this is not the case at all.

Blue Lagoon helps heal the body and mind

Iceland has a strict code of hygiene, making guests shower without clothing in the communal shower area before and after they use the spa.

A couple of other places in Europe and asia are now using geothermal energy to power places like Blue Lagoon, and it is slowly saving the world.

If you are into spa’s and are also into exploring some of the most amazing places on Earth, many people suggest visiting Blue Lagoon.
