According to recent reports, a Chinese fast-attack submarine just stalked the USS Ronald Reagan. The incident happened last October 24 off the coast of Japan and a US official has been quoted describing it as “more than a brief encounter” because it lasted for “at least half a day.” No information has been given about how close the submarine was to the American aircraft carrier.

Probabilities point out that the submarine was a Project 636, an Improved Kilo class which has been one of the ten bought by China from Russia back in 1994. This type of submarine is powered by diesel electric and is designed to be very stealthy. Noise is greatly reduced by the use of sound-isolated engine and anechoic-coated outer hull. The Chinese Improved Kilo subs are often based in Xiangshan.

USS Ronald Reagan crew members were completely clueless they were being followed by a Chinese submarine.

Although the submarine did not make any threatening moves, Project 636 is known for carrying powerful weaponry including guided torpedoes and Russian Novator Klub-S missile.

So what exactly was China’s reasons for following the Reagan? Well, it was most likely to prove a point. They wanted to show they can move close enough to their targets if they wanted without even being detected. Also, this is probably one of the ways China is expressing their anger againts the United States for sending warships over their man-made islands at the West Philippine Sea.

A similar encounter occurred back in 2006 when Chinese Song-class submarine surfaced within 5 miles of USS Kitty Hawk, another aircraft carrier. The submarine went totally undetected the entire time.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) just announced that they've found the answer to one of the biggest questions about Mars — thanks to the data gathered by the Mars, Atmosphere, and Volatile Evolution (MAVEN) spacecraft. You see, MAVEN has been orbiting the Red Planet since 2014 and its recorded observations ultimately revealed some planet-shaking truths.

Based on past findings of various unmanned Martian missions, scientists have found clues that Mars was a habitable planet much like Earth about 4.3 billion years ago. It had oceans that were believed to be deeper than the Arctic Ocean.

The Red Planet is now a vast desert...but it wasn't always that way.

This Massive Crack Called the ‘Gash’ Suddenly Appeared in the Bighorn Mountains

It’s a huge crack, but experts say it’s normal.

Despite the absence of any seismic activity in northern Wyoming, a massive crack suddenly appeared in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains. The “gash” as the locals call it, is a chasm that measures 2,250 feet long and 150 feet wide.

The Bighorn Mountain range is near the dormant super volcano, Yellowstone caldera. The volcano’s magma chamber has shown signs of reactivity, but the rising magma would have caused seismic activity as it moves its way up to the volcano’s crust. However, no seismic activity was detected at the time the crack appeared.
