I re-blog science (Space Science to be exact) and the occasional fandom blogs from my friends and autistic blogs since I am autistic. I also write Science Fiction stories as well, though none of them have been published.

humanoidhistory:

Happy birthday to Konstantin Tsiolkovsky, the father of spaceflight, born on September 17, 1857 in Izhevskoye, Russia. To celebrate, let’s do some fun facts:

  • He was the son of a Polish deportee to Siberia.
  • At age ten he nearly became deaf from scarlet fever.
  • Like many pioneers of space travel, he was inspired by the science fiction of Jules Verne. (See Hermann Oberth for another Verne fan.)
  • Tsiolkovsky wrote his own sci-fi stories.
  • He built the first Russian wind tunnel in 1897.
  • In 1903 he published the rocket equation in a Russian aviation magazine. Called the Tsiolkovsky formula or Tsiolkovsky rocket equation, it described the relationships among rocket speed, the speed of the gas at exit, and the mass of the rocket and its propellant.
  • In 1929 he published his theory of multistage rockets, based on his knowledge of propulsion dynamics.
  • He was a big proponent of humanity moving out into the vastness of outer space: “Earth is the cradle of humanity, but one cannot remain in the cradle forever.”
  • Inspired in 1895 by the newly constructed Eiffel Tower in Paris, Tsiolkovsky was the first person to conceive of a space elevator.
  • During his lifetime he published approximately 90 works on space travel and related subjects, including designs for rockets with steering thrusters, multistage boosters, space stations, airlocks for exiting a spaceship, and closed-cycle biological systems to provide food and oxygen for space colonies.
  • There’s a crater named in his honor on the far side of the Moon.
  • He is often called the “father of spaceflight.” He’s also been called “the father of theoretical and applied cosmonautics.” (One has more dramatic punch than the other.)
  • Interestingly, Tsiolkovsky never built a rocket.

Here are some wonderful facts about Sea World’s orcas!
The average lifespan of wild orcas ranges from 30-50 years, although some females can easily make it past 80 (a wild orca named J2 or ‘Granny’ is 103 this year!). The lifespan of a Sea World orca is around 25 years, the median age being 9. But at least they put on a good show!
Don’t worry, collapsed dorsal fins are a common condition, although in the wild only sick or injured orcas have collapsed dorsal fins. All of Sea World’s males and some females have it, it makes them look unique! 
The size of Sea World’s tanks compared to an orca is about the same as a human to a bathtub. Lot’s of room to stretch and move!
Wild orcas swim 100+ miles a day, they would have to swim around their tank 1,400+ times a day to achieve that. But that seems like a lot of work, and you may see the animals hanging out near the surface of the water or on the bottoms of their tanks for hours. That’s a lot more relaxing than swimming all those miles!
Sea World gives their orcas a Valium-like drug to stop the whales from acting aggressively towards each other and to numb their minds from their vastly uninteresting concrete tanks. Buying a ticket to Sea World is an excellent way to help them pay for these drugs that they pump their animals full with!
Many captive orcas show abnormal behaviors like head bobbing, chewing on concrete, and self mutilation by banging their heads into the side of the tank. Obviously just temper-tantrums! Silly things.
In the wild, there has been only one orca attack. Bad orca! While in captivity, there have been over 100 attacks and 4 deaths. These animals just need more training, it couldn’t possibly be related to their confinement! 
Food is used as reinforcement for tricks. Do a trick, get your dinner. Don’t want to do a trick? I guess you don’t eat tonight you stubborn thing! 
See? Sea World isn’t as bad as people make it out to be! Oh, one more fact: for every $1,000,000 Sea World makes, about $600 goes into conservation efforts (about $0.5 a ticket). I’m so glad they care about conservation of the ocean! Amazing work!

If you haven’t realized it yet, this post is 100% sarcastic. It should be obvious, but not everyone understands sarcasm…
