how much does the earth weigh

Kids and their questions. The other day, my beautiful and amazing toddler asked me, at dinner, a question I couldn’t answer. She was having her mac and cheese in silence and, then, out of the blue, she went: “Mommy, how much does the earth weigh?”. At that point of the day, having played for hours, picked her up at school and other daily motherly tasks I was too tired to even begin so I went on and told her I didn’t know. She was okay with me not knowing and, she probably forgot within the next five minutes. However, after I put her to sleep, I began wondering on that question. Now I needed to know how much the earth weights.

So, I did some research and I found that weighing the Earth is not an easy task. You can’t put the Earth on a scale and find out, you know? So, to know its actual weight, you need to measure the attraction forces. Isaac Newton was the first person to consider this question and he developed a formula which involved the attraction forces and the distances between objects. 

When I approached my five-year-old to tell her what I had found out she looked at me and replied: “Oh, okay”.

Airline Pilot Salary Due to Shortage

Being able to pilot a plane was once one of the most common dream among young boys. Being able to fly towards the sky must be fascinating and there a lot of boys who accomplished their dreams. However, the industry is not at its best momens as there is shortage of pilots in the US and for that reason, different companies offer an airline pilot salary of $21,000.

Now it is time to regret  not to have followed your dreams as a kid.Smaller companies have already started to cancel their flights and reductions of flights is not excluded from future plans. Companies are starting to lose millions per year and the only way to reverse it is by hiring more pilots.

Since the 2009 crash of a Continental Express flight, rules to become a commercial pilot have changed. Before, 250 flight hours and a pilot certificate were enough, but now, you need to 1500 hours and an Airline Transport Pilot Certificate, and that amount of flight hours is obviously not achieving in a few months. The strict qualifications to be met plus the history of poor pay and instability of regional pilots are the causes of the current pilot shortage, and smaller airlines are the first ones to be hit.
