The closest star to Earth is Proxima Centauri. It is about 4.25 light-years away, or about 25 trillion miles (40 trillion km). The fastest ever spacecraft, the now-in-space Parker Solar Probe will reach a top speed of 450,000 mph. It would take just 20 seconds to go from Los Angeles to New York City at that speed, but it would take the solar probe about 6,633 years to reach Earth’s nearest neighboring solar system.

The World Economy Is Suddenly Running Low on Everything

(Bloomberg) — A year ago, as the pandemic ravaged country after country and economies shuddered, consumers were the ones panic-buying. Today, on the rebound, it’s companies furiously stocking up. Mattress producers to car manufacturers to aluminum foil makers are buying more material than they need to survive the breakneck speed at which demand for goods is recovering and assuage that primal fear of running out. The corporate buying and hoarding is pushing supply chains to the brink of seizing up. Shortages, transportation bottlenecks and price spikes are nearing the highest

With vaccines rolling out across across the world, travelers want to reclaim something most gave up during the lockdown era: the summer vacation.

Travel searches are surging, and bookings aren’t far behind. But it isn’t happening uniformly across continents.

Europe on the move

More than half (56%) of Europeans intend to travel this summer with the vast majority choosing to stay within the continent, according to the European Travel Commission, a non-profit organization which represents over 30 countries in Europe.

New PBS Show ‘Conscious Living’ Brings Sustainable Approach To Travel

Arhaq

As every comedian knows, the secret to comedy is timing. But the secret to timing in television travel shows is a little more elusive, and in the case of the PBS show Conscious Living, the timing of its fourth season seems odd, given the remaining restrictions of the pandemic that have made travel more challenging than ever.

Conscious Living bills itself as a green and mindfulness-based travel show debuting on PBS in June. Think Anthony Boudain’s Parts Unknown with an emphasis on keeping it green. The show is a family affair, featuring husband-and-wife team Bianca Alexander (a production lawyer

Americans Can Now Travel To Italy, With A Catch

Arhaq

While the European Union has plans to welcome vaccinated Americans in the near future, we don’t yet have a firm timeline for when that will happen. We have seen individual countries already open to Americans, including Croatia and Greece. You can now add another country to that list, with a major catch.

Italy opens to Americans, but only on select flights

As of today (May 16, 2021), Americans are allowed to visit Italy for any reason, including tourism. This applies to everyone, and not just those who have been vaccinated. There’s one major catch — to be eligible, you must

The best time-travel show of all time is streaming for free right now

Arhaq

Back to the Future and Doctor Who are both great time travel stories for the same reason: anachronisms. Taking fictional characters and dropping them somewhere in time they don’t belong can be equal parts hilarious and tragic depending on how it’s played, but this basic fish-out-of-water concept is as important to science fiction as robots or ray guns.

One of the biggest hurdles time travel stories face is figuring how an unstuck-in-time character can blend into historical settings. In 1989, the unmatched sci-fi classic Quantum Leap solved this problem with a simple twist: What if you time traveled by jumping

Bengals 2021 schedule is one of NFL’s best in travel miles

Arhaq

The Cincinnati Bengals appear to have one of the tougher schedules in the NFL based on certain metrics.

But perhaps more important? The amount of traveling the team will actually have to do.

As ESPN’s Brian Burke pointed out after the NFL released the 2021 schedule, the Bengals will travel the fourth-fewest net miles of any team.

That’s a really nice luxury to have right as fans presumably start getting let back into stadiums.

And the devil’s in the details too. Cincinnati does play three games in a row on the road starting in Week 6, but they’re brief trips
