    Is it possible to predict the date of the next equinox and next full moon?
    I'm just wondering. If its possible to predict the date of the next equinox and next full moon based on a Moon calender.

    • ANSWER:
      It is totally possible!
      The next equinox will happen at exactly 11:02 (GMT) on the 20th of March 2013

      and the next full moon will be at 10:27 on the 27th of March.

      Note that these are different from the Eccelsiatical Equinox and full moon used for computing Easter.

    Where can I find an affordable Sailor Moon DVD?
    I am looking for season 3 of sailor moon english dub.. I am desperate that I will buy a bootleg, but it must be excellent quality... Please please someone help me!

    • ANSWER:
      eBay is the best way. There are a lot of bootlegs, but if you do your research you can find affordable Sailor Moon DVD's. I usually get mine from -. Bootlegs 9/10 times have terrible quality, terrible subtitles, and try to jam way too many episodes onto a disc.

      Use to help find official Sailor Moon DVD's. He has guides for the North American and Japanese releases!

      Seasons and box sets are usually a lot higher if you try to buy the entire set due to them being out of print. I've heard rumours that FUNimation might be getting the rights to Sailor Moon (especially for the new 2013 anime) and might re-release old Sailor Moon box sets. Like I said, it's a rumour so take it at that!

    Within the next century, suppose there is a successful manned mission to Mars. What moon or planet is next?
    Within the next century, suppose we successfully complete a manned mission to Mars. What moon or planet will we travel to next?

    • ANSWER:
      Even before we go back to the moon, NASA will send a crew to rendezvous with a Near Earth Asteroid (a specific target has not yet been selected). It is actually easier to travel to an asteroid than it is to travel to the moon. Not only would we get some great samples of an asteroid, it will be the first time to get some experience in deep space (beyond Earth's orbit).

      For unmanned missions, I can hardly wait to see the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope. (Have to wait until 2013 for that.)

    What's your wishlist on the new Saillor Moon anime reboot in summer of 2013?
    What I'm hoping to see is a better story for example, how life was in the moon kingdom, and less filler, closer to the manga.
    Better animation and make it more modern, good music and awesome transformations, hoping they'll make a transformation for Sailor Saturn <3 I want to see more of Queen Serenity and others. I want scenes when Usagi and Mamoru are together. If anything, i want them to make an ova about Sailor V, that would be awesome. Last but not least, it would be great if they dub it in English if they can, if they do i'm just hoping they'll have better voicers for the characters. So what's your wishlish? I'm very curious :)

    • ANSWER:
      I love the transformation sequences for one thing. It made it special to me. I also would like to see more stuff about life on the moon and also more information revealed about ChibiChibi. She was one of my favorite characters despite her coming in at the end. More oddly shaped odango too lol

    Will hover cars be released in 2013, or do we have to wait until 2015?
    I saw a documentary on time travel called "Back to the Future". They actually traveled to 2015 and most cars had flying capabilities. Also, skateboards had been replaced by hoverboards. But time is starting to run short. We're almost to 2015 and none or the technological marvels that were present in the documentary have surfaced yet. Is 2013 going to be the start of a huge technological boom?

    • ANSWER:
      That wouldn't have been a documentary.
      Strictly speaking, a documentary "documents" things that have actually happened.

      Flying cars don't exist.
      And there seems no chance that an "anti-gravity" device could ever be invented.

      If it was invented, then flying cars would become common place. As would traveling to the moon and planets. And even traveling to other stars would become possible for anyone.

      But reality strikes ---
      It is science fiction at present. !

    I'm buying a nintendo 3ds soon because I'm in the navy and I want something to pass the time on the ship. I like games like harvest moon and rune factory and am wondering which of each franchise is the best because I'd like to pick one of each up, I just want to make sure I'm getting the right one.

      3.New Super Mario Bros 2
      4.Kingdom Hearts DDD
      5.Legend of Zelda OFT
      I recommend these because the 3ds version of Harvest moon does not come out till 2013

    How can you tell when its a full moon?
    How can you tell when its a full moon? Because there are a few days when it looks the same, but how can you tell its the EXACT day?

    • ANSWER:
      Look on a calendar there are sometimes a date on which will be a full moon.


      Look on the sky, if the moon's disk is completely illuminated, it's Full moon.

      The Moon does not change phase everyday, The Moon revolves around the Earth for 27.3 days. There are no exact days of when will be a full moon (like if March 27, 2009 is a full moon, will March 27, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013... will be full moon, of course not!).

    If the full moon has enough pull to start volcanoes and earth quakes then what will happen?
    if all the planets lined up so you could draw a straight line through all of them and moon and sun? Would there be more pull on the earth than when there is a full moon? The mayans suggest an alignment with the centre of the milky way and their calender translates to ours as somewhere in the next five years. 23,000 years and there;s some kind of alignment. Does anyone know anything about this and whether there is a real risk astronomically to earth.

    • ANSWER:
      (sigh, I will be so glad when we get to 2013 and these questions can stop)

      First, the planets in our solar system will never line up in a straight line - their orbits are not all in a single plane, they are all angled to the ecliptic.

      Second, the planets (even if they all lined up one behind the other) are too far away from the Earth to have any influence on the Earth or the moon - gravity decreases as the square of the distance. The moon is the only object (besides the sun) to have any gravitational influence on the Earth.

      Third, the galactic centre everyone is all caught up about in this "alignment" nonsense is 25,000 light years away.
      Converting the distance to AU you have 1.5 billion AUs.
      The gravitational force varies by the square of the distance, so you have an effect equal to 1/(1.5 billion ^2). My calculator doesn't have enough decimal places to show the answer, its that small.

      Fourth, the sun and Earth will not align with that galactic centre - the solar system's orbit around the galaxy isn't at the right angle. The solar system does cross the galactic plane, but that has happened hundreds of times and has no effect on us (how could it, its not a real object).

      No, there is no risk to Earth.
      Do some reading, you'll find out the science behind all this doomsaying going on.

    Have you heard predictions for a collision courses with our moon? What if XF11 missed us but hit the moon?
    Asteroid 1997 XF11 will pass well beyond the Moon's distance from Earth in October 2028
    Worrisome to asteroid watchers is the exceptionally close flyby of Earth by Apophis on April 13, 2029. So close in fact, the space rock will be naked-eye visible as it darts by. And what can't be ruled out at this time is that Apophis may pass through a gravitational "keyhole" - a spot that alters the asteroid's trajectory as it zips by our planet and might put it on the bee-line lane for banging into Earth seven years later.

    Is an asteroid really coming to hit the Earth and cause an ‘extinction level event’, similar to that which wiped out the dinosaurs? Scientists say it just might happen, with an Asteroid called Apophis having a 1 in 45,000 chance of impact.
    I really wish people could look past the numbers and address the questions. The statement has very little relavance in the questions.
    I truley do not have answers for my posted questions. I posted them hoping for a response.

    • ANSWER:
      Granted that's a higher chance than hitting the Mega lottery, but still very unlikely. And we will know for sure after 2013, leaving plenty of time to take a corrective measure such as altering its orbit.
      No one is sweating the possibility of the Moon getting whacked. For one thing, it is smaller and has a weaker gravity field, leading to its being a less likely target. For another, at the moment, no one lives there, so it's not a real problem, any more than people worried when Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 rammed into Jupiter.

    Is Sailor Moon 2013 going to have an English Dub?

    Does anyone know when they might start filming New Moon the sequel for Twilight?
    I love Twilight!!!! and I really want to c how they will do on New Moon.

    • ANSWER:
      According to Kristen Stewart, they are supposed to start filming in March 2009.

      According to IMDb, New Moon is scheduled to come out in 2010. And according to, the release date is January 1, 2010.

      Back to IMDb, if they do Eclipse, it is supposed to come out in 2012. And then Breaking Dawn in 2013. I know that Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson (and I think a few other characters) are signed on for three movies, leaving Breaking Dawn out. But you can not make Eclipse without Breaking Dawn. However, Stephenie Meyer stated that it might be impossible to make Breaking Dawn into a movie and if it would be, it should be made into two movies.

    By what magnitude is what we know today compared to what we'll know in a 100 years?
    1913, a hundred years ago is radically different than 2013. However 1813, 1713, 1613 I heard aren't even as different from 1913 as 2013. Will this trend of exponential change continue for the next hundred years. From historians looking down will 2013 look more like 1913 than 2113?

    • ANSWER:
      read the singularity is near. it talks about the exponential growth of technology due to the law of accelerating returns. basically we are in the knee of this exponetial curve. these curves model moores law, which has held up so far. in twenty years we will be uploading our brains into computers. in 100years we could be turning the moon into a computer.

    Is anyone hoping the new Sailor Moon 2013 series isn't going to suck ?

    How long would it take to get to the moon?
    how long would it take to get to the moon in a 2013 Shelby GT500? If there was a straight road with gasoline stations along the way. Please explain your answer.
    Please factor in fueling time

    • ANSWER:
      The moon is roughly 240,000 miles away. A Shelby can easily hit 180 mph on a straightaway - so something in excess of 1300 hours or 55 days of travel time.

      Unfortunately, a Shelby only gets about 15 miles to the gallon (less at that speed), so you're gonna need to refuel every 500 miles (that means about 500 times). Assuming it takes 15 minutes each, that will add 125 hours to the trip or another 5 days.

      (I am ignoring the lack of oxygen along the space highway - you will also need to carry all the oxygen that it takes to burn that fuel.)

      So, if you don't eat and don't sleep -- about two months. And the same for the return trip.

    does anyone know what the new sailor moon is going to be about?
    I heard a little while ago that there was a new sailor moon coming out in 2013, I was just curious if they were re-making it, or if it was a completely new story?

    • ANSWER:
      They are remaking the whole entire series.
      So yes new anime and possibly new voice actors.
      They are NOT re-dubbing it or anything along those lines.
      They aren't even gonna touch the original one.

      They haven't really mentioned anything besides
      them remaking the whole entire series yet
      and that this one is going to follow the manga more closely unlike the original one.
      (I read it in a website but i forgot the link)
      but it did say this one was gonna follow the manga

      ~Please note that we are talking about the original Japanese~
      They are gonna air the new SM summer 2013 in Japan
      They said it will be released all over the world..
      so maybe it will air on t.v on other countries as well.

    IF NASA would fly to the moon again in 2013 what kind of improvements would our modern technology?
    have on the 2013 trip compared to the the Apollo Missions of 40 years ago

    • ANSWER:
      Better cameras. NASA could simply drop off a robot rover which could stay behind after the astronauts leave to transmit pictures of the launch and then continue explorations. As we already know tons about the Moon and how equipment fares under those conditions, we could use the landing as an opportunity to set up many simple remote experiments from teams other than NASA.

    If UAE claim india is under developed then why have India sent men to the moon and UAE have not?
    Sending men to the moon requires advanced technological and economical developments.
    @Jack - Up yours faggot!!

    • ANSWER:
      When? where did you hear that I am curious?

      I believe you mean the Chinese but projections are that mission will take place after 2017. The 2013 planed India mission will be remotly controlled. It means India can't send a man to the moon yet. That mission is only designed to carry a small remote controlled rover that is all. Even this rover will be made by Russian technology not Indian know how.

      as to UAE I never heard them say that India is such, all these reports are issued by IMF , UN and other int'l orgs with many Indians working and editing those reports .

    What is causing the giant halo around the moon tonight?
    It's January 21, 2013 at this moment and there is a giant halo around the moon and I also kno Jupiter is orbiting the moon as well there is a white speck by the moon and that is Jupiter but I'm still curious about what the halo is about

    • ANSWER:
      It's caused by moonlight reflecting off of ice crystals in the Earth's atmosphere.

      Jupiter does not orbit the Moon. Jupiter is a planet. Like all planets in our solar system, it orbits the Sun. Jupiter may appear to be near the Moon in the sky, but it is actually millions of miles away.

    The plane just a spot in the cloudless sky
    it soared ever higher, someone's trip to the moon.
    If I could go anyplace I wanted, I would try
    first to say goodbye but I am sure I'd miss you soon.

    • ANSWER:
      The Plane

      The plane was just a spot in the cloudless sky,
      it soared ever higher, someone's trip to the moon.
      If I could go anyplace I wanted, I would try
      first to say goodbye but I am sure I'd miss you soon.

      Cloudless was then, but for three years it rains,
      how was I convinced that your eyes in mine stare?
      a strange sun on abstemious seasons feigns;
      were we beholden, on this unsubstantial fare?

      Your eyes, an image denoted, three years before,
      in ravishing simplicity, mettlesome and mine,
      What can I confer if the clouds' quitness stores,
      in the holiness of souls our lost mess red wine?

      Pale icons parade on elegiac times that passed,
      recall me in Springs when the solitude reigns;
      pensive moments in winds' sovereign gusts,
      can you hear the singable drops of pelting rains?

      The plane was just a spot in the cloudless sky,
      it soared ever higher, someone's trip to the moon.
      If I could go anyplace I wanted, I would try
      first to say goodbye but I am sure I'd miss you soon.

    What is the transit Neptune trine Moon all about?
    Neptune in Pisces trine my Moon in Scorpio until like 2013. It just started.

    What does this mean?


    • ANSWER:
      With this transit, you can expect some type of new experience of a psychic nature usually. The mind is more sensitive and is a good aspect to awaken the higher mind and consciousness. If you keep an open and unbiased mind, you may come in touch with impressions that will help you to understand another part of your being, but you will have to live purely to do so. To the ordinary person it will probably bring about nothing more out of the common than some particularly enjoyable excursion or picnic, in which the watery element will play an important part. Look to the house Neptune transits it as it will indicate the area of influence.

      Russia is lacking funds and has been working with China and India, providing the technologies and funding its own programs. It also has a space station on the program.

    How often does the CPA exam change?
    I'm thinking about purchasing the Wiley 2011 CPA review set which is supposed to be updated for the exam after DEC 31, 2010.

    I plan on taking the test 2012 or 2013, will I be ok with the 2011 edition?

    • ANSWER:
      Probably not. The content of the exam is expected to change in 2012.

      Let me give you an analogy. Let's say that you are researching the US Space Program, but your encyclopedia was published in 1968 and you have no internet connection. While you will have information on the Mercury, Gemini, and early Apollo flights, you won't have information on Americans landing on the moon in 1969, which should be included in your paper. You just don't have everything you need to write that paper with an old encyclopedia--which puts you at a disadvantage in passing that class.

      You have two choices: get updates (and a ton of extra books) OR buy an encyclopedia which does not expire.

      As far as the CPA Exam is concerned, you do have an option: select a CPA Review Course which never expires until after you pass all four parts of the exam: CPAexcel!

      With CPAexcel, you have unlimited electronic updates to your study text books, video lectures, 5400 proficiency questions, etc. as they become available throughout the year.

      Printed textbooks? Wiley updates its printed books just once each year. CPAexcel updates its printed textbooks twice a year--you get the information you need to pass more quickly!

      If you want to start studying now and yet have the most up-to-date study tools before you sit for the exam, select CPAexcel! CPAexcel will be your partner until you pass--whether your CPA journey is short or long.

    Should NASA consider canceling its manned exploration program for good?
    I don't if anyone has seen the NASA budget that will be reviewed for congress for 2013, but many scientific programs have had severe budget cuts, the worst one being the robotic planetary exploration program, which received a budget cut of a staggering 38%. The budget for manned missions remained largely intact. If robots are getting better at doing science and eventually reaching the point where there will be no point in sending humans from a scientific perspective, shouldn't NASA consider canceling its manned exploration program for good and freeing up that money it spends on that to fund other and important scientific missions such as the robotic planetary exploration program, James Webb Space Telescope, etc?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, and let's start with that smelly tin can that orbits the Earth called the Internationl Space Station that has cost more than 100 billion dollars with little scientific return to show for it. After it is finally retired as well as the manned program becoming obsolete, NASA can finally get back to what it does best: doing fundamental scientific research. If the private sector wants to send people to space and can turn a profit doing so, then let's leave that to them.

      NASA is a scientific agency which should be dedicated to pure and esoteric scientific research, not the misguided notion of sending people to other planets and moons. Let the private sector take care of that.

    What is a good site for 2013 meteor shower info?
    I'm trying to find a good, reliable site that has the dates and amount per hour. I'm looking at sites and one says there will be 10-20 meteors per hour for this meteor shower. Another says there will be 30 per hour for the same meteor shower. Another says 50. I don't know which is right. Does anyone know a good site for info on it that's accurate?

    • ANSWER:
      There are many internet sites that provide info on meteor showers (see links below). They will vary in their predictions, especially regarding how many meteors are visible per hour, because the number varies from year to year & depends somewhat on local light pollution (including the phase of the Moon). More light pollution means fewer visible meteors because they are washed out.

    Why do people still love sailor moon after all these years?
    I respect the classics but I don't really like all the girly stuff. Some guys at my school still watch it but they aren't anime otakus unlike me. In my country, they still play it during weekdays so I understand small kids. Why do they still cosplay it?

    • ANSWER:
      Because Sailor Moon is a great anime that helped to create an entire generation of anime fans that can trace the beginning of their interest to this show. Sailor Moon is so popular that in the U.S.A it has been re-translated and is now being re-released. In honour of the 20th anniversary of Sailor Moon the anime is also being recreated. Information about new 2013 Sailor Moon Series can be found at & Information about the republished manga can be found at:

    2012, 2013, or 2027, which is going to be the year the meteor comes closest to earth?
    Also, do you think it will actually hit Earth & why isn't the government talking about it or planning to do something about it? What could they actually do? Just a little concerned...

    • ANSWER:
      I'm assumig you are talking about 99942 Apophis. Apophis is a near-Earth asteroid that caused a brief period of concern in December 2004 because initial observations indicated a small probability (up to 2.7%) that it would strike the Earth in 2029. Additional observations provided improved predictions that eliminated the possibility of an impact on Earth or the Moon in 2029. However, a possibility remains that during the 2029 close encounter with Earth, Apophis would pass through a gravitational keyhole, a precise region in space no more than about 600 meters across, that would set up a future impact on April 13, 2036. This possibility kept the asteroid at Level 1 on the Torino impact hazard scale until August 2006. It broke the record for the highest level on the Torino Scale, being, for only a short time, a level 4, before it was lowered.

      Additional observations of the trajectory of Apophis revealed the keyhole would likely be missed and on August 5, 2006 Apophis was lowered to a Level 0 on the Torino Scale. As of April 16, 2008, the impact probability for April 13, 2036, is calculated as 1 in 45,000. An additional impact date in 2037 was also identified; the impact probability for that encounter was calculated as 1 in 12.3 million.

    • ANSWER:
      You're Rishba/Taurus lagna/ascendant and Tula/Libra rashi/Moon sign.
      From your lagna, Shani/Saturn is the lord of 9th and 10th houses. Since he owns a kendra(1,4,7&10) and a trikona(1,5&9), he's most beneficial planet to the lagna. Similarly from rashi, he owns 4th and 5th houses, therefore the most beneficial planet to the rashi.
      He's exalted in Libra with Moon(3rd lord from lagna and 10th lord from rashi), 6th from lagna and in the rashi. Also he's beneficially deposited in navamsa. So he will certainly confer good results.
      His maha dasha starts from 26.4.2013 and will be operating for 19 years.
      This maha dasha will confer rise in career and social life.
      But till 2017, you've Sade Sati, which isn't beneficial. So till 2017, the results will be quite adverse.
      Pray to Lord Shani on Saturdays.
      Visit Thirunallar on a Visaka nakshatra and do remedy pooja.
      Wear Blue Sapphire stone in gold.
      Feed crows daily.

    Newly single mother looking for a daily journal or something of the sort?
    I'm a 19 year old mother of a one year old little girl. Until recently, I had believed that the father of my baby hung the moon. He and I had been together for five years, lived together for the past year and he was the ideal father for our daughter. We had our problems and he decided that he was done. My daughter and I moved out, he moved friends in and now I'm left picking up the pieces of the life that was taken away from me.
    Although right now he is acting like a complete moron and is living out some fantasy of "the youth he missed out on", I love him and think of him daily. I have moved on with my life as best I can, filed with the courts, stopped any unnecessary communication.

    I'm looking for a journal/book/devotional that I could go to daily for a little "me" time at the end of the day. Right now, I go to bed reeling about what my life has become and the questions that have been left unanswered. I think a journal where I could write out my feelings or a book that helps with this sort of change in a mother's life would be incredibly helpful, but I have no idea how to find such a book.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions :)

    When will we land a man on Mars?
    Do you think we will put a man on mars in the near future? And if so, how long?

    I have heard that we are planning more trips to the moon, has anyone else heard that?

    • ANSWER:
      G'day rsw,

      Thank you for your question,

      It will be decades. Current plans are to land a man on Mars between 2030 and 2035. I will be in my seventies if I live to see it which I hope to do.

      Future plans for unmanned Mars Exploration include the sending of the Phoenix Lander in 2007, followed by the Mars Science Laboratory in 2009, the Phobos-Grunt sample-return mission, to return samples of Phobos, a Martian moon. Other missions have been proposed, although not yet confirmed.

      Manned Mars exploration by the United States has been explicitly identified as a long-term goal in the Vision for Space Exploration announced in 2004 by US President George W. Bush.

      The European Space Agency hopes to land the first humans on Mars between 2030 and 2035. This will be preceded by successively larger probes, starting with the launch of the ExoMars probe in 2011 or more likely 2013, followed by the 'Mars Sample Return Mission'. Likewise, astronauts will be sent to the moon between 2020 and 2025 in preparation for this mission.

      I have attached sources for your reference.
