Obversa has a well thought out article that goes in deep to explain his idea.

My theory is that Dumbledore didn’t “learn” to understand Parseltongue…but that he can understand it, because he, like Tom Riddle / Lord Voldemort, is a distant descendant of Salazar Slytherin. He inherited (part of) the Parseltongue gene.

NASA astronaut Jack Fischer is poised for a journey of exploration and research on the International Space Station. Extensive coverage of upcoming prelaunch activities, launch and arrival will air on NASA Television and streamed on the agency’s website.

Coverage begins Thursday, April 13, with video of prelaunch activities in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, which will air on NASA TV through Wednesday, April 19.

Fischer and his Expedition 51-52 crewmate Fyodor Yurchikhin, of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, are scheduled to launch at 3:13 a.m. EDT Thursday, April 20 (1:13 p.m. Baikonur time), from the Baikonur Cosmodrome aboard a Soyuz MS-04 spacecraft. NASA TV coverage of the launch will begin at 2:15 a.m.

The pair will travel on a fast-track, six-hour course to the space station and dock to the Poisk module at 9:23 a.m. NASA TV coverage of the docking will begin at 8:30 a.m. Once at the station, they will be welcomed by Expedition 51 Commander Peggy Whitson of NASA and Flight Engineers Oleg Novitskiy of Roscosmos and Thomas Pesquet of ESA (European Space Agency). Hatches between the Soyuz and space station will open at 11:05 a.m. NASA TV coverage of hatch opening and welcome ceremonies will begin at 10:45 a.m.

Expedition 51 will continue work on hundreds of experiments in biology, biotechnology, physical science and Earth science aboard the International Space Station, humanity’s only microgravity laboratory.

Fischer, a first-time space flier, and Yurchikhin, a veteran of four spaceflights, will spend more than four months aboard the orbiting laboratory before returning to Earth in early September.

Get breaking news, images and features from the station on Instagram and Twitter.

An Abandoned Dog Found in a Garbage Bag

[ad_1]

Malissa Sergent Lewis was driving through her hometown of Harlan, KY, when she noticed a black garbage bag moving along the side of the road. Curious, Lewis went to inspect the bag only to find an abandoned puppy inside of it. Though the puppy had a collar, it didn’t have a tag.

In an interview with The Dodo, Lewis explained the unexpected and horrifying discovery. “I could hardly wrap my mind around that,” she said. “Something was alive in that bag, and I just knew I had to get whatever it was out.” As one might imagine, the dog was relieved to be found. “As soon as I opened it up, and he saw light, he just started wagging his tail. He knew he was OK,” she said.

A teen girl’s beautiful cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” is going viral for, well, many reasons. For starters, she has an insanely beautiful voice. Also, she sang her rendition into an old well, which happened to make her vocals sound that much better due to a cool echo.

On March 28, Tiffany shared the aforementioned video of herself singing. In her caption, she wrote, “Found a well in Italy with a nice echo.” In just a few days, the video has amassed over 300,000 “likes” and 100,000 retweets. Watch the soothing video ahead.

Beautiful, right? It definitely makes sense why people online are tearing up.

Facebook user Lisa Woelke shared a brain-teaser that has been driving the Internet nuts. The post — which has been shared by more than 170,000 users — depicts a math equation with fruit items in lieu of numbers. For example, it can be deduced from the first line that one apple is equivalent to the number 10. Harmless enough, right? Wrong.

The most common answer for the remaining final line was 16 — and you shouldn’t be discouraged if that’s the answer you arrived at . . . it just isn’t the correct one. The final answer is actually 14. You might be asking yourself, “What the what?” as you ponder the degeneration of your math skills, but it’s OK. We can work through this together.

So yes, one apple equals 10, one banana bunch equals four, and the coconuts equal two. However, the final line alters the coconuts and bananas so that they are each missing one, respectively. In the case of the last line, there is only one coconut — equaling one — and three bananas in the bunch, which equal three. So one apple (10) plus one coconut (one) and three bananas (three) equal 14. Voilà!

When BuzzFeed’s deputy global news director, Ryan Broderick, put out a call for the internet to Google search their first names plus “the hedgehog,” he exposed one of the coolest internet tricks you probably never knew existed. When Twitter users followed his cryptic instructions, they discovered that when you Google your name along with “the hedgehog,” most likely you’ll get a customized cartoon version of the popular ’90s animated classic, Sonic the Hedgehog.

The results appear to be random images drawn by artists, and each hedgehog looks uniquely different based upon your first name, which makes the outcome even more fascinating and fun to try. Read on to see all of the epic Google search results people found and prepare to be overcome with major nostalgia.

Every time we get a different view of space, we’re simply left in awe of its mesmerizing natural beauty. One photo of the moon in particular is no exception to that, as it has just started sweeping the internet and taking our breath away in the process.

The image features a view of an almost translucent crescent moon through the top of the Earth’s atmosphere, and it’s absolutely stunning. We’ve never seen the moon look like this before! This snapshot was captured by an astronaut in the Johnson Space Center’s Image & Analysis Laboratory back in 2006, and it recently found its way to Reddit, where space-lovers noted its beauty and quickly made it go viral.

Some users even observed how the photo looks noticeably similar to a specific shot of the Death Star in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Seriously, the resemblance is uncanny . . . was this the movie director’s sly way of giving NASA a hat tip? The internet seems to think so!
