"Other traveling exhibits have been on tour almost every year since then, with the number of items increasing over time. The most recent tour titled the treasures of the golden pharaoh had a 150 items, and it ended in 2021 due to the pandemic. The majority of the collection can be found at the brand new grand Egyptian museum in Giza. This museum is the replacement for the Egyptian museum in Cairo, and its scheduled to open sometime in late 2022. But what did we actually learn about Tutankhamun himself from his tomb and his mummy? Well, actually quite a bit. For starters, he had a problem with his leg. He had a bone disease that resulted in a club left foot. He probably had difficult walking and this is confirmed by the artwork which was discovered, showing him engaging in various activities in a sitting position. No other pharaoh has ever been depicted this way. DNA analysis was done on the mummy and it was revealed that his mother and father were brother and sister, which might have had something to do with his health condition. It was also revealed that he had an overbite, a slightly cleft palate, and mild scoliosis. His cause of death is unknown, but it appears he had a broken leg that was infected, and that might have been part of what did him in. The discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb was arguably the greatest archeological discovery of the 20th century. Next to the discovery of the Rosetta stone, it was probably the greatest advance in our knowledge of ancient Egypt. The discovery turned what was rather a minor unknown Egyptian pharaoh into the best known pharaoh in the world. Everything everywhere daily is an airwave media podcast.

"In the end. He was neither rewarded or punished. Incident was a major embarrassment for the soviet establishment which had created the satellite system. The satellites detected a missile launch by looking for the heat signature which comes from the rocket. That's why to this day. Americans and russians notify each other before rocket is launched. What they believe happened on september twenty six. Nineteen eighty-three is that the soviet satellites detected the light of the sun reflecting off the clouds at just the right angle that was why the satellites detected a launch but the ground base radar. Didn't americans estimate that if the soviets were to have launched there might have been between eighty to a hundred and eighty million deaths just on the american side. The americans of course would have responded in kind killing an additional fifty to one hundred ten million more people the story of stanislav petrov and what happened on september twenty six. Nineteen eighty-three wasn't released to the public for over ten years it wasn't until the soviet union claps that knowledge of that day became public as it turns out. This wasn't the first or last time that a nuclear close call like this has happened in nineteen sixty two during the cuban missile crisis. A soviet submarine was being hit with depth charges and thought that war had already started. They were going to fire a nuclear torpedo at an american ship but that action required three senior officers on board to be an agreement. One officer vasili arkhipov descended and the nuclear torpedo was never launched on january twenty. Fifth nineteen ninety-five the soviets picked up another launch. Which was taken all the way up to russian president. Boris yeltsin he declined to launch and it turns out it was an american slash norwegian research rocket which was just not announced. As for stanislav petrov. He was quietly reassigned after the incident later left the military and had a nervous breakdown after the collapse of the soviet union. He was eventually growing his own food to survive. When the story of the events of nineteen eighty-three finally became public. Petroff was finally given the recognition. He deserved he was given several modest cash prizes by peace groups from around the world which helped his financial situation immensely stanislav petrov passed away in two thousand seventeen at the age of seventy seven when he died he had the distinction having perhaps saved more lives in an immediate and direct fashion than any other person in human history.

The joint security area has several buildings at the md l. runs through including the original conference room where the armistice was signed about one hundred thousand tourists per year. Visit the j. From the south each visitor has to sign a waiver. Indicating quote the visit to the joint security area at penman. John will entail entry into a hostile area and possibility of injury or death as a direct result of enemy action unquote. I've spoken of the terms of the armistice several times. But i don't want to give the impression that it's something that both sides have scrupulously observed. It's been violated hundreds of times by both sides. One of the terms of the agreement. Is that no new. Weapons may be brought into the korean peninsula and that obviously has been repeatedly broken. There's also been at least four attempts by north korea to tunnel under the dmz. When initially caught the north korean said they were mining for coal even though the tunnels went through solid granite. They went so far as to paint the walls of some of the tunnels black so it looked like coal. The southern part of the dmz also has another line called the civilian control line c. It's located anywhere from five to twenty kilometers from the southern edge of the dmz and it's designed to control civilian movement within the dmz. There has been one unintended consequence of the creation of the dmz with only occasional policing patrols. The entire area has become a defacto wildlife sanctuary at approximately a thousand square kilometers. It has become one of the best preserved habitats in the world. There are several endangered species in the dmz including the red crowned crane. The white nap crane the korean fox and the asiatic black bear the idea of turning the dmz into a national park first arose in nineteen sixty six and the subject has come up many times since then. Billionaire ted turner has offered to fund. Whatever was necessary to turn the area into a peace park and there has been a movement to turn it into a unesco world heritage site as well despite seven years of sporadic conflict along the dmz. There have been some recent steps taken to deescalate. Tensions in two thousand eighteen talks were held. Were both sides agreed to dismantle ten guard posts along the dmz along with associated equipment and weapons. There's also been a no-fly zone established along the dmz for drones. Fixed wing aircraft helicopters and even balloons likewise. There's also been an effort to clean up land mines in the area. The demilitarized zone has been in place for so long that regardless of what happens in the future on the korean peninsula at least some vestige of it will probably remain either as a historical attraction or a national park the timber recreation of nineteen fifty-three might just have become a permanent feature on the korean peninsula associated producers.

The museum became less important as a center for learning and alexandria became center for christian theology with the collapse of the western roman empire. Alexandria remain the second most important city in the byzantine empire after constantinople. It became the center of the coptic church. Which is a distinction. It still has today. Byzantine rule wasn't to last very long however by six forty one. The city was conquered by the arabs. This began a long decline for the city. Cairo became a much more important city as a center for islamic learning and the new egyptian capital city. A new islamic port city called rosetta located just forty miles.

Two million people in two thousand and two a new library of alexandria was opened known as the bibliotheque alexandria it is an architectural centerpiece of the modern city and is located right next to the coast even though alexandria was one of the most important cities in the ancient world. There aren't a lot of ancient ruins to see. It doesn't have anything. Like the acropolis in athens or the coliseum. In rome there are some things that are visible but most of the conic structures were destroyed or have been buried under centuries of urban development nonetheless. Alexandria is a great place to visit. And it's often overlooked in favor of cities with ancient egyptian temples and tombs.

"If you live at a higher altitude let's say denver or kito ecuador you'll have more radiation exposure than someone who lives at sea level likewise flying in airplanes will increase your radiation exposure due to cosmic rays. Your level of exposure will primarily. Depend on how much you fly. And at what altitude you fly for the most part cosmic rays pose. No real health read all life. Forms throughout the history of life have been exposed to cosmic rays and we evolved for our dna repair low level radiation damage. One thing that can't be damaged by cosmic. Rays is computers. If a particle hits the right part of a processor or memory chip it can flip a bit. Causing an error in two thousand and three there was an election in belgium that was conducted electronically the results were more than the number of votes cast in an audit checking. The paper ballots also cast found that the air perfectly corresponded to a single bit in a single computer which could only have been caused by stray cosmic ray particle this is why computers on spacecraft have to have so much redundancy the space shuttle's head to have triple redundancy for exactly this reason the issue of cosmic rays is also a huge consideration for long term spaceflight the only time humans have ever been outside of earth's magnetic field was during the apollo missions and that was only briefly the issue of cosmic rays is a considerable one that needs to be considered for any mission to mars. One proposal would be to surrounded ship with water. Which would stop most of the cosmic rays. The problem is that water is heavy and either we would need to get it from the moon or we need to get it from earth. There's one thing one big thing. I haven't yet mentioned. Where do cosmic rays come from. Sure they come from space but where in space. Exactly the truth is no one really knows. You can't just detect. The direction of particle is coming from. Because they're so easily influenced by magnetic or gravitational fields not just the gravity and magnetism of earth but also that of the sun or even possibly the galactic centre the particles which are flying around space may come from other stars the center of our galaxy or even other galaxies wants a particle is jettisoned. You can basically travel forever until it runs into something. The smallest change in it's trajectory will render its origin impossible to determine. They're actually many theories about where they come from. But it's very difficult to actually prove anything. Cosmic rays are all around us all the time and always have been. There really isn't anything you can do about them. And so long as you remain on earth it also really. Isn't anything to worry about.
