260, by Graham Hancock]"Sri Yukteswar’s introduction to The Holy Science includes his explanation of the Yuga Cycle – revolutionary because of his premise that the earth is now in the age of Dwapara Yuga, not the Kali Yuga that most Indian pundits believe to be the current age. His theory is based on the idea that the sun “takes some star for its dual and revolves round it in about 24,000 years of our earth – a celestial phenomenon which causes the backward movement of the equinoctial points around the zodiac.” The common explanation for this celestial phenomenon is precession, the ‘wobbling’ rotating movement of the earth axis.

[....]" [Based on: Article (Scientists unearth evidence that Ice Age giants originated in Tibet) cn 2011-09-04 - Editor: Wang Guanqun] NASA's Curiosity rover has  uncovered signs of an ancient freshwater lake on Mars, which scientists say could have been a perfect spot for tiny primitive organisms to flourish if they ever existed on the red planet. P.] The watering hole near the Martian equator existed about 3.5 billion years ago around the time when life evolved on Earth. [NP] The skeleton, described in the British scientific journal Nature and National Geographic magazine, represents the first juvenile remains of these ancient humanlike creatures, making the fossil the oldest child by far ever found. From the waste down, the skeleton looks like a human's. Her brain was small, her nose flat like a chimpanzee's and her face long and projecting.
quartz in granites, partial bleaching occurs up to 5mm depth under several hours of daylight exposures and almost complete beaching is achieved in the first 1 mm within about 1 min daylight exposure.
The ‘quartz technique’ for limestone monuments containing traces of quartz enables their dating with Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) techniques.
Thus rock artefacts and monuments follow similar bleaching rationale as those for sediments.
In limestone and marble, daylight can reach depths of 0.5–1 mm and up to 16 mm respectively, while for other igneous rocks e.g.
