In the video posted below, Derek Muller gives a puzzle to some innocent bystandarts. “I’m going to give you a three number sequence, and I have a rule in mind that these numbers obey.

Trees are some of the oldest organisms on the planet. While our lives pass by in the blink of an eye, many trees stand as silent witnesses—watching century after century roll on.
(Image Credit: David A. Aguilar/CfA) Black-holes are difficult to understand because their primary characteristic — that they destroy the matter they consume — contradicts a law of physics that says the opposite is true.
The Whirlpool galaxy (also known as Messier 51) is one of the most instantly recognizable galaxies known to man, and for good reason too.
