7. Travel into space
On November 5, 2018, NASA’s Voyager-2 went interstellar. It was launched in the summer of 1977 and now, it’s approximately 18 billion kilometers away from Earth. Its mission was to study the outer borders of the Solar System. The Voyager-1 had entered into deep space in previous years. Scientists think that they will be able to maintain their connection with the spaceships until the year 2027.
Now for the sad news: in August 2006, one planet left the Solar System. Scientists decided that the small mass known as Pluto could not be considered a planet.
8. From self-dissatisfaction to body positivity
Psychologists say that the widespread presence of media has caused women to try to be physically perfect. They’ve literally been drowning in an endless stream of articles on how to lose weight, scary stories about obesity, and photos of slim models in trendy clothes.
As a result, the never-ending race to be slim has gotten kind of old and now we have a new movement upon us: body positivity. Women are no longer ashamed of their bodies and plus-size models have started to appear on the covers of fashion magazines.
9. Social media instead of real communication
In 2004, American student Mark Zuckerberg created Facebook with his roommates and the rest was history. Now on social media, you can tell people all about yourself, find new friends, read the news, earn money, post commercials, collect money and do a wide range of different things.
Today, there are millions of users on social media from around the world. Scientists are even concerned that many of us have forgotten the importance of live communication. We spend a lot more time on our smartphones and computers than we ever have before.
