A day on a beach One day I went on my everyday walk along a small beach. It was a beautiful evening. A pleasant breeze was blowing from the sea and some fluffy clouds were slowly floating in the sky, towards the sinking sun.A day on a beach by Naeran
I couldn't resist the wish of cooling my feet in the water which was echoing all around me. I happily came closer to the edge and almost immediately felt the touch of incoming waves. I was happy. Not everyday I could stay there like I did that time. However, I knew that I couldn't spend my entire life sighing and standing in the water. Quite sad with that thought I went out of the sea and took the last look at the burning red orb which was trying to hide under the line of endless water.
Suddenly I felt something strange, like snakes rubbing on my legs. My body shivered almost immediately. In fact it was a really cold wind. I turned back to see what the source of this change was but I didn't expect what I saw...
I felt like in an other world. Anot
Collection: The Leonidstechgnotic
The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati

Joan of Arc

Her story has been told in many novels, movies and comic books. She was the girl who God gave a mission to drive the occupying English out of northern France. So fervid was her demand for action that she was made an advisor to the French high command and led them to victory after victory in the cause of F

Life on Mars
As the next planet over that visiting wouldn’t be all that difficult (Venus being way too hot), especially after our trips to our own moon, Mars has always held a special attraction for our science fiction writers and illustrators. In fact, the comic book and the paperback novel are media in which fiction and art have formed a bond like no other in which the exterior presentation (the cover art) for the artform itself (the sci-fi novel’s text) is often of equal importance, creating a combined force, in serving the narrative. Mars may ultimately become a forward military outpost defending against invading aliens, or prime real estate for hu
