When you think of Cards Against Humanity, you probably think of naughty nights with your friends, having some adult beverages, and talking about inappropriate stuff. Well, you can still play the scandalous party game – but there’s now an option for your kids to participate as well. Yes, there’s officially a family-friendly version of Cards Against Humanity!
There are a few different version of the kid-friendly Cards Against Humanity game, and they’re all relatable for children.
The options include a School Sucks pack, Smarty Pants, Class Clown Bundle, Glow in the Dark Box, and even a Written by Kids pack!
So far, people haven’t been too eager to bring children into their game nights, but that will probably change over time. It’s always tough for a company to re-brand and for people to adapt to different ways of playing a beloved game. That said, you can be part of the trend if you want to become the fun aunt/uncle. Just make sure you don’t accidentally mix up the kids’ version with the adult pack!
Scientists are used to searching for asteroids by scanning the night sky for fast-moving specks of light. However, there’s now a new method that proved to be successful at hunting for asteroids at twilight. It’s turning up space rocks people wouldn’t normally see.
The 2 Largest Asteroid Finders
There are a lot of asteroid finders but the largest ones at the moment are the Catalina Sky Survey, which operates multiple telescopes out of Arizona, and the Pan-STARRS observatory out of Hawaii. These used to be the premier hunters of near-Earth asteroids but they primarily search the sky at night which limits the parts of the sky they can observe in the area right around our planet and the outer Solar System.
Why Hunting for Asteroids at Twilight Is Better
As the sky is hazy at twilight but just bright enough to add difficulty to the search. Scott Sheppard and a team of other scientists working with the Blanco four-meter telescope in Chile have found the first known asteroid that orbits closer to the Sun than Venus and the largest potentially hazardous asteroid to Earth that’s been found in the last several years.
Usually, near-Earth asteroids appear as very fuzzy and faint point lights zooming through the sky as they don’t emit light on their own and only reflect the light coming from the Sun. This is why it’s easier to see these little dots at night. However, this limits the observation by 50%.
Using Special Equipment
While astronomers made a huge breakthrough with the Blanco four-meter telescope, people are also using the 48-inch Zwicky Transient Facility telescope, located in California, to find asteroids at twilight. The main goal behind asteroid hunting is to understand the population of space rocks and give us a global view of where they come from and how they move around the Solar System.
