'Dark Mater' is literally dust in the [interstellar] wind. And 'Dark Energy' rests on certain conclusions about red shift. If those conclusion are 'away from truth', then Universe might not be expanding. If you missed Woody Allen fretting about it in Annie Hall, then here's a dark, dark Kurzgesagt video:

Reminds me of star trek tng season 4 episode 5. I guess that one is more science than fiction. Where the universe seems to be shrinking.
Also they don't delete their old video because their channel will loose all those views. Usually when some one makes a video that's a bit of an embarrassment they hid it so it's more or less unfindable.

The Earth 🌎 looked vastly different not long ago.

From your video.

https://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/im...harlotte-whale

Ill be fishing 🎣 S̶e̶a̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶C̶h̶a̶m̶p̶l̶a̶i̶n̶ ̶ Lake Champlain in a couple of weeks.

Hope I catch a whale.

Or if Im real lucky, Champ...

And who knows. While Im there, I might even catch a glimpse of the elusive Aerocivic in its new stomping grounds.

From TFA: "Most scientists think the land in New England will take several tens of thousands of years to rebound completely."

Completely? This implies an end state. And no micronova.

I like the research on the Tesla Valve. They find it throttles faster flows and smoothens stuttering.

Integza has done a number of videos on the Tesla valve, and now I'm wondering if I somebody could make a car muffler of one.

Which is inconsistent with gas/plasma emissivity.
black body would be limited strictly to infrared. The sun emits 'light' all over the electromagnetic spectrum.

The Sun is perfectly spherical even though it spins. Everything else bulges if it spins. A glitch in The Matrix?
The Sun is all fluid. Unlike Earth which is solid, fluid, and plastic.
Centrifugal force cannot act on a fluid. It can act on a liquid, but the Sun doesn't have any of that. You'd be trying to stack ball-bearings.

Sun made of

I believe that the Sun is mostly hydrogen, and producing helium, however it contains everything that was in the accretion disc which the rest of the solar system formed from. The parts of the periodic chart that occur outside particle accelerators.
They'd be ions. I know that it's atmosphere contains iron. Nice place. Go only at night.

Melting ice caps are enough to throw the planet's rotation out of sync, and the wobbling effect can alter the liquid convective ( lava lamp ) plumes below the lithosphere ( crust ).
When lava cools, it 'marks' magnetic alignment at the instant of solidification, and geologists can 'read' the direction of the poles, when a host of dynamic factors are all figured into the mix.
Sometimes there are complete reversals, sometimes just hiccups. It will do that for at least 5-billion more years.
