Like all living things, humans are bioluminescent (meaning we glow) – We glow brightest during the afternoon. - weird, interesting & funny facts
i’ve been staring at this for like 5 minutes. so.. what. i don’t think people glow. but this is telling me that we actually emit visible light.. especially in the afternoon?? am i reading this right or what
"all living things" plants. when do the plants glow
science side of tumblr pls
I’m not from the science side of tumblr, but here’s the answer anyways:
Basically, all living things are bioluminescent because every living thing has chemical reactions occurring in their cells. The energy created from these chemical reactions physically manifests as light, thus… all living things naturally glow.
However, this glow cannot be seen by the human eye. In fact, the only way they’ve ever captured this light is through special cameras. Using these ultra special cameras, they’ve imaged subjects’ bodies over 24 hour periods. It has been found out that humans emit the most of this glow during the afternoon (about 4 PM), it is the weakest in the morning (about 10 AM), and the brightest light is emitted from the cheeks, neck, and forehead.
The light is about a thousand times weaker than what humans can perceive.
Basically, it’s a side effect of metabolic reactions. It’s been suspected that humans are bioluminescent for years, but they weren’t able to confirm it until recently thanks to technology and a man named Masaki Kobayashi from the Tohoku Institute of Technology.
10/10 time to answer
you are now offiicially from the science side of tumblr.

On Regeneration, the Time War and the Ninth Doctor
The War Doctor is 800 during the events of “The Day of the Doctor”. 800 years old as he steps into his TARDIS towards the end of the episode and begins to regenerate into the Ninth Doctor.
The Ninth Doctor, when he first gives his age in “Aliens of London”, is 900. That’s a gap of 100 years. A century of wandering the universe alone, wracked with guilt, and grief, and loss, and pain and all of those other emotions Russell T Davies is fond of.
Ah, but then there’s that moment in “Rose”, the very first episode of the 2005 series, where he catches his reflection in the mirror and comments on his appearance.
He hasn’t seen his own face in a full century. Well, why would he? What could possibly bring this man, who (as far as he knows) killed billions of his own people, committed double-genocide in stark opposition to everything he believes, to everything he would have done were he of sound mind, to look at his own reflection in the mirror?
For one-hundred years, he did not do this. Out of shame. Until a chance encounter with Rose, his second chance encounter, and he catches his reflection in an ordinary mirror. Well, now he can’t avoid it. Now it’s there, right there, plain as day. Can’t hide from it anymore.
And it’s not quite as bad as he thought it would be. Not the way he looks, but… seeing himself. Looking himself in the eye, knowing what he knows, what he’s done. What he believes he’s done.
That moment, I think, is the moment the Doctor starts to heal. Rose is present for that… she may have been in his background (the Doctor’s in ours, as the viewer, but each character is the center of their own story) but she was in the room when he saw himself for the first time, so there’s an emotional connection.
Later, Rose proves herself in a life-or-death situation. Plenty of people have done that and the Doctor hasn’t asked them to join him on the TARDIS. Especially not now, not now he’s travelling alone. But maybe it’s time to heal. Maybe he’s ready to accept what he’s done, to learn to forgive himself, to try to move on.
Maybe he invites Rose aboard the TARDIS because she reminds him of that moment. Maybe seeing her face reminds him that it’s okay for him to see his own.
Or maybe not. But it’s fun to imagine, isn’t it?

Look at your school of witchcraft and wizardry. Now look at mine. Now yours. Now back to mine. Sadly, your school is not mine, but if you all got off your broomsticks and started using a real sorcerer’s deodorant, it could smell like mine. Abracadabra! I’m a horse.
