There is a decline in the Bee population. This has been linked to pesticides and habitat loss.
Time capsules are a popular way of preserving the present for examination at a later date by future generations. Current artefacts are placed in a sealed container, quite often cylindrical, and buried where it cannot be disturbed easily.
Acid rain has long been identified as having a negative impact on the environment, causing serious damage to forests and vegetation. It is caused by emissions of sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxide reacting with rainwater passing through the atmosphere, creating and acid. Acids normally have a low pH value.
Chimpanzees and other life forms are often used in labs for scientific studies. Sadly, some of these studies harm the creatures being studied, some don't. All are intended to further scientific knowledge, some are also intended to support commercial interests.
The primary means of putting a payload into space is the rocket. Rockets have been around for hundreds of years, but it wasn't until the Second World War that their potential for delivering a payload, in this case a bomb, was seriously developed.
The Earth has an ionosphere caused by ultra violet rays breaking apart atoms of air, ionising it. The Moon does not have an atmosphere and so should not have an ionosphere, but it does. It was discovered that ultra violet rays were acting on grains of dust ionising them, and the Moon is a very dusty place.
The SETI Institute is an organisation that is involved in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence. It is involved in a number of activities that are intended to discover other intelligent life in the Universe.
Bees are an essential part of the well being of Earth's Eco-system. Their decline is worrying scientists all over the world.
All you need for your own time capsule is an air and water tight container, and somewhere to put it that won't be disturbed for a very long time.
Huge swathes of forest in the Northern latitudes have been damaged by acid rain
Planet of the Apes is a film franchise that explores the possibility of other primates becoming the dominant species on Earth.
Early rockets weere highly prone to failure on launch, blowing up  shortly after take off.
The Moon does actually have a very thin atmosphere caused by gases escaping from rocks.
It is not well understood what the consequences of an encounter with alien species would be.
