Arrokoth, o objecto mais longínquo

O Arrokoth (como agora se chama) é vermelho, frio e formou-se há 4000 milhões de anos. Afinal, o que é que sabemos sobre o objecto mais longínquo que já visitámos? Três artigos científicos publicados esta semana na revista Science trazem-nos mais novidades. Sabemos agora que não se formou violentamente, que tem 4000 milhões de anos e é totalmente vermelho e frio. A partir de Novembro, o nome do objecto mais longínquo que visitámos até agora – o 2014 MU69 – passou a ser Arrokoth, que significa “céu” na língua indígena norte-americana do povo powhatan. Até então, era conhecido pela alcunha de Ultima Thule, expressão em latim que significa um “lugar além do mundo conhecido”. A mudança aconteceu porque Ultima Thule […]

Bilderbuch

Because Bilderbuch has the perfect amount of craziness and talent they deserve to be my number one of Austria. A lot of Austrian artists tend to be a little bit “crazy” or seem to be “different” to the norm, e.g. “Falco”, “Young Hurn”, “Seiler und Speer”, “Conchita Wurst” and many, many more… In fact, there are probably more “weird” than normal, successful artists in our country. “Bilderbuch” originally was established in 2005, when the four members were approximately 14 and 15 years old –  but more or less became fully internationally known in 2017 with their major hit “Bungalow”. It also was at that time, that one of their other songs, “Maschin”, became really famous as well, although having had […]

Behemoth

Behemoth is a Polish extreme metal band from Gdańsk, formed in 1991. They are considered to have played an important role in establishing the Polish extreme metal underground. Until the late 1990s, the band played a traditional black metal style with heathen lyrical content but soon changed to that of occult and Thelemic themes written by their lead vocalist Nergal and Krzysztof Azarewicz. With the 1999 release of Satanica, the band demonstrated their presence in the death metal scene, while retaining their own signature style characterized by the drum work of Inferno, multi-layered vocals and Middle-Eastern influences. Despite Behemoth having been labeled as death metal or thrash metal-influenced, Nergal has mentioned that he does not like the band to be […]

Meet Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Vaduz is the capital city of Liechtenstein, a small country between Austria and Switzerland and also my home. Liechtenstein is a very small country so its cities are also very small.
