Welcome to Life Noggin!
Down here in the circuit boards,
things can get pretty toasty.
Especially when my Animator
keeps watching videos of people eating 3,000dollar hot dogs!
You know that uses a lot of processing power!
It does get pretty hot in there,
but that ’ s just in the digital world.
How hot can it actually get out there in yourworld?
According to NASA, the average temperature around the globe back in 2013 was about 14.6 degrees Celsius.
Continuing the general trend of climate change and rising global temperatures since 1880.
In that time frame,
the 10 warmest years on the planet have actually happened in the last
20 or so years, so things definitely seem to be heating up.
But that’s just the average temperature.
We ’ ve seen a bunch of hot days
on the Earth, but on June 26th, 2018,
the town of Quriyat,Oman
saw one of the hottest nights ever recordedin history.
The day was pretty intense,
reaching temperatures of nearly 50 degrees Celsius
but the night offered no respite from the heat,
falling to a low of only about 42.6 degrees Celsius.
Things can get toasty on Earth,
but there are much hotter planets in your solar system.
Mercury,the closest planet to the Sun.
can heat up to temperatures of over 425 degrees Celsius during the day.
That’s hot enough to melt zinc and lead!
Interestingly enough, the nights there are just the opposite,
cooling down to temperatures below -170 degrees Celsius.
Water starts to freeze at 0 degrees Celsius,
so that ’ s pretty darn cold!
Those temperature differences may seem a little extreme,
but hot days and cold nights are
actually pretty common inside many of the deserts on Earth,
on a much smaller scale of course.
Now,Mercury may have some pretty hot days,
but it isn ’ t even the hottest planet in your solar system.
Venus,the second planet from the sun
has a thick atmosphere that helps keep it at an
average temperature of around 462 degreesCelsius.
Its high surface temperatures are so hot
that they quickly overheat the electronics of any spacecrafts that are sent there.
But if you want to see some /really/ hot temperatures,
you can find them inside the Sun that you see in the sky every day.
On Earth, the Sun might just give you a nasty sunburn,
but at the core of the Sun, temperatures
can reach higher than /15 million/ degreesCelsius.
不要担心 我涂了很多防晒霜 只是因我的身体而看不见罢了
And don’t worry, I do have a lot of sunscreen on right now, you just can’t see it because of my body.
Hot days on earth can cause wildfires,
heat stroke in humans, and many other dangerous things!
Make sure you stay hydrated and please don’t launch yourself into the sun!
I don’t know how you would, but just don’tdo it.
So how hot does it get where you live?
Let me know in the comment section below!
We mentioned how hot Venus was in this video,
but did you know that we could potentially live there?
About 50 kilometers above Venus’ surface there is an airspace
with similar gravity, pressure,
and solar radiation protection to what wehave here on Earth.
The temperature ranges from about 30 degrees to 50 degrees Celsius,
creating a fairly livable atmosphere.
一如既往 我的名字叫Blocko 这是Life Noggin
As always, my name is Blocko, this has been Life Noggin,
don’t forget to keep on thinking!
