15 Photos That Prove There Are So Many Things In The World That We Do Not Know About
We have very mundane lives with our jobs, studies and work. We don’t get to explore our world as much as we’d like and we often have to rely on movies and TV shows to teach us about the world outside our four walls.
This is where the Internet comes in. Thanks to this exceptional mode of communication we can learn, read, see and experience things from the comfort and safety of our own homes. Do you know what a flame in zero gravity looks like? Or how the x-ray image of a pregnant dog looks like? Well, today you’ll see all that and much more.

As kids, we all have done this where we place our hands or fingers over a flashlight to see the veins under our skin.

5A flame in zero gravity
We have all seen a flame on earth. It is long and consists of colors like blue, yellow and orange. But have you ever seen a flame in zero gravity? This is what a flame in zero gravity looks like. It isn’t long but round in shape and is just blue in color.
