Ice Circle

Ice Circle or the circle of ice is a phenomenon that appears in the water that has a slow flow in a cold climate. The shape resembles a giant dish which consists of ice and rotates slowly on the surface of the water.

Fire Rainbow

Atmospheric phenomenon was known as arc circum-horizon or Fire Rainbow, will appear when the sun is high (more than 58 degrees above the horizon).

Fire Fall

"Fire fall" is basically a waterfall, but unique in that get sun exposure so the shimmering golden twilight. This incident is very rare and only a few days a year, usually in February, the sun will highlight a waterfall, creating an orange light like a flame skyline.

Fire Ball

"Fire Ball" an unexplained atmospheric electrical phenomenon. The term refers to reports of luminous, spherical objects which vary from pea-sized to several meters in diameter (Wikipedia).

NAO Robot

"NAO Robot" is an autonomous, programmable humanoid robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics, a French robotics company headquartered in Paris (Wikipedia).

NAO Robot

"Cavendish Experiment" was the first experiment to measure the force of gravity between masses in the laboratory[1] and the first to yield accurate values for the gravitational constant (Wikipedia).

Star Telescope

"Star telescope " A telescope is an instrument that aids in the observation of remote objects by collecting electromagnetic radiation (such as visible light). The first known practical telescopes were invented in the Netherlands at the beginning of the 17th century, using glass lenses. They found use in terrestrial applications and astronomy (Wikipedia).

Physics Context: M2P2 Spaceship Thrusters with Up to 10 Times of Apollo XI's Velocity

In the Star Wars and Star Trek movie, we have never seen even once a spacecraft is powered by a rocket. But, we always see the single rudder shuttle (small spacecraft) can take off from a planet and up to space then travel to another solar system. We have seen that, they moved without a rocket power. Even though it is only a movie, but now some time ago, the researchers from NASA discovered the new method of space shuttle thrusters that is not use a rocket power. It was named M2P2 (Mini Magnetospheric Plasma Propulsion). But, by the common understanding of the Physics Laws, the light speed shuttle as in the Movie, still can’t be discovered. Even though the thruster can’t reach the light speed as in the Star Wars and Star Trek movie, but for now the some fiction shuttles can be discovered by M2P2 technology.
