More Interesting and Awe Inspiring
theor" ges About the Universe
Neutron stars are one ofthe possible ends for a star.
They result from massive stars " times the mass of
our sun. The interesting thing is, neutron stars are
only about " km across. The astounding thing is,
that they are so dense, that one teaspoonful on Earth
would weigh one billion tons! Neutron stars oan also
have magnetic 'r" gelds that are a million times
stronger than any magnetic 'f" gotd produced on Earth.
The resulting faroe of gravity is so strong that if an
object were to fall from a height of one meter it
would only take one microsecond " hit the surface
ofthe neutron star, and it would do so at around Tdot
million kilometers per hour!
o can honestly say that I don' t know much about neutron stars,
though I have been reading up on them lately so I decided to add it
in. If you feel I have left anything out or gotten anything wrong,
please, flame me below.)
Is there life on any other planet in the universe? Are we
really alone in this incomprehensible void we oall the
universe? Scientists have been trying to answer this
question ever singe man eould look to the stars above.
But, the answer may lie within our very solar system. The
above picture is that of Europa, one of many moons that
Jupiter posesses. An ioe bovered moon with perhaps no
evidence of life on it' s surface. But what eould lie beneath
the ioe is what intrigues scientists. The 'veins' that
appear on Europa' s surface suggest that beneath it' s ioy
must, may lie free moving water. Water, being one of the
main building bloak of life, may be the answer to the big
question. As our oceans are teaming with hundreds of
thousands if not millions of different species, one eould
only imagine what lies beneath. NASA is currently
working on a probe that will land on Europa and drill
through the miles of ioe to expose the water below. Until
then, we oan only dream of life other than our own.
Time is an odd thing. When you look through a telescope
into deep space, you are essentially going baak in time. If
these colliding galaxies were wmm Lightyears away, you
would be seeing what happened to them nun years in the
past. It is not possible to look deep into space and see
things in their present.
While you' re still getting over that semi ******** , I present
you with this example. The Grandfather clause Proposes
that if time travel were possible and you went baak in time
and killed your grandfather, you would cease to exist. The
only problem is, if you killed your grandfather and never
existed, how would you go baak in time to kill your
grandfather'? You would have never existed, therefore
never having been able to go baak in time and shoot your
grandfather and cease your existence, so you would exist;
But if you did exist then you would go baak in time and
cease your existence only to 'ttwtt out that you would not
be able to kill your grandfather because you never existed.
Are those Brain fumes I smell‘?!
The Universe is Just Awesome
All the possibilities to be explored. All the unknown
outcomes to be discovered. The universe is full of
surprises! I WILL be making more Just because i get
excited whenever I think of the " number of results
there oan be from an " number of ,

Technicaly the grandfather parodox is solvable with either one of 2 theories, the first is that you can't change the past because the past already knows of your being there. So if you went back to the past to kill your grandfather, **** will happen so you dont. Like, you'll only be able to hurt him and then he goes to the hospital and finds a nurse that looks surprisingly like your grandma...
The second is the theory that there is an infinite number of dimensions and every possibility exists (Steven Hawking approves of this). Ergo... when you would go back in time, you will travel to another dimension where your grandfather dies young and you still exist because you were born for your grandfather of the dimension from which you came.

now try and solve the "mad scientist" paradox that Steven Hawking presented in "into the universe with Steven Hawking", which he created because he didn't like the grandfather parodox

i have been thinking of that steven hawking theory since i was 6. it just helped to make sense of things.

thank you for easing my mind slightly

BRAIN FUMES ARE BLOWN AWAY!!! Steven Hawking showed that you could kill your grandfather or your younger self. It would be possible because of the previously posted Multi-Verse Theory. He stated that IF you went back in time, and killed your (father, grandfather, mother, grandmother...pick one any relative...i don't care) you would simply create a universe in which you did not exist. You could travel back to your time, but you wouldn't exist, you would be in all sense of the word, anonymous. Every bit of you and your history would be changed, and in some ways the world will have changed and the. You can prevent yourself from being born, but it will **** with your existence. TL;DR - You can kill your grandfather by Multi-Verse theory.
#139 to #120 - anon (05/04/2010) [-]
wosshhhh i just went back in time and killed my self. most ****** up suicide ever
User avatar #125 to #120 - Hagenite (05/04/2010) [-]
Yeah but Stephen Hawking also said that at this point no one has theorized a plausible way to go back in time, and if you did try to kill yourself (or a relative) the universe would prevent it because that would cause a paradox.
#135 to #125 - anon (05/04/2010) [-]
However, another theory states that once you make the decision to kill your grandfather and are intent on it, you will cease to exist at that exact moment. This is because once the decision is made it is temporarily "written in stone." Unfortunately, once you make that decision, you can't change it because you don't exist anymore. Unless of couse you had previously gone to the future to stop yourself from doing exactly that.

I guess we'll never really know how it all works. All these theories are exactly that, theories. We'll never be able to test this because we may accidentally destroy the universe in the process. That sucks.
User avatar #131 to #125 - KSMO (05/04/2010) [-]
Did you see the latest documentary on him explaining time travel, black holes, and paradoxes? In it he said that the Multi-Verse Theory is a plausible explanation for paradoxes. If I went back in time right now from the future, and killed myself before I could make the first comment, I would still exist, but when I go back to the future (in a DeLorean of course) I would exist, but not exist. It's still a ******** , but less of one.
User avatar #134 to #131 - Hagenite (05/04/2010) [-]
No I didn't, but that only applies if the multiverse theory applies otherwise there is no foreseable way to time travel -backwards at least- at this point.
User avatar #153 to #134 - KSMO (05/04/2010) [-]

One of the recent episodes was on time travel adn collecting enough energy to travel fast enought to go back in time.

I love the multiverse theory. For every decision you make, another you in another universe made a different choice. Therfore there is a possibility for an infinite number of universes. Dinosaurs may still be alive in a universe, and in another universe aliens might have made themselves known to earth or even destroyed the earth.
User avatar #144 to #128 - KSMO (05/04/2010) [-]
Ah, yet another topic to discuss. Aliens. I watched a special on this today that basically stated that ancient civilizations and cultures on Earth had contact and influences from alien races. It also stated a possibility of an alien race sending life to Earth (can't remember the had to do with sperm and para though..) possibly because of a threat to their own planet. And that we are them, and aliens that are visiting us now are those seeing what we turned into.

So if we look deep into space and see something 2000 lightyears away, that means we are looking 2000 years in the past.
Well then, If i am in Florida, on the phone with someone in China, does that mean i am speaking with someone 12 hours in the future?
#505 to #500 - anon (05/05/2010) [-]
If you are LOOKING at someone in China you are seeing someone a couple of milliseconds in the future... the time it takes light to bounce of them and hit your eyes.
#508 to #505 - anon (05/05/2010) [-]
Past, not future, sorry.
#512 to #508 - anon (05/05/2010) [-]
And, I suppose, yes, if you are talking to someone in china, the same can be said. Signals used to carry phone calls travel at nearly the speed of light, so when you hear something they have said, they actually said it a few milliseconds in the past.
#507 to #500 - anon (05/05/2010) [-]
Technically yes. Have you heard of the International Date Line? I hope that doesn't come off as sounding rude. Just asking.
#528 to #500 - anon (05/05/2010) [-]
when you consider time AND distance, technically yes.

******** note...time is a perception.
User avatar #531 to #500 - dakunism (05/05/2010) [-]
no, just bc the timezone is different, doesn't mean youre talkin to them in the past or future, but in the present. you look into the past when you look out into space, bc it takes light 2000 lightyears to travel to Earth, meaning it took 2000 years for light to come from the colliding galaxies and arrive at Earth.
User avatar #607 to #531 - Btayebnejad (05/08/2010) [-]

I am actually annoyed at scientists that say the only chance that there is life on other planets is that there is water, just because our molecules have evolved to survive of water, it doesnt mean that every lifeform in the universe has to. For all we know there could be life forms that survive of gas or are even gas formed, there could be life on the sun that needs heat to survive, it is all possible but our scientists insist it has to be water for there to be life. hell, there could even be lifeforms in space that survive of dark matter.
#381 to #372 - anon (05/05/2010) [-]
I understand what you mean but they cant just make stuff up.. Everything on earth lives from water and so far they have found nothing that dont so by what we know it wouldn't be possible for something to live off gas... sure there's theroys that people make up with barely any evidence but there's still some sort of fact behind it

1 teaspoon of a neutron star

Wait what if we had teaspoons of neutron stars inside teaspoons of neutron stars? They could totally fit infinitely because of their own compression! Infinite mass? WTF FTW?
