The Universe Is Just Awesome IV

The Universe is Just Awesomely
Even More Interesting and Awe Inspiring
Fastal" theor" ges About Our Universe
The speed of light is clocked in at about 300, 000 km a
second. Einstein' s theory states that nothing can
accelerate at the speed of light because it would gain
mass and require " energy. Imagine you are
driving your car at the speed of light, and then fantum on
your headlights. What would happen? Einstein may have
stated that nothing can accelerate to the speed of light,
But Einstein never said anything about objects that may
already be travelling at the speed of light. There mar be
objects that travel faster than the speed of light since the
very second they were created. Tachyons are one of
those objects. They are bounded to the limits of the
spiderlike portion of the graph, making
it impossible for it to slow down to subliminal speeds.
Can these particles be used to help us as humans acheive
light travel?
may I' m Just going to throw this in here because it' s been
Bugging me lately. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS THE
CENTER OF THE UNIVERSE'S The universe is always
expanding, so theoretically, you could say that the
computer chair that you' re sitting in right now is the center
of the universe. Ifl were standing at the very end of the
universe as it zipped passed me expanding, I could claim
that I was at the center of the universe. Sony, someone
had to say it...

Age of the Universe (billions of gears)
The Hubble Telescope is one of scientists‘ favorite tools.
The only way we can Better understand our universe is to
observe it in it' s earliest form. Like I' stated before, by
looking deeper and deeper into space, you travel further
and further back in time. Hubbie' s ultra deep can see
almost " billion years in the past. Almost around the time
the farst stars and galaxies were created. By observing
how stars and galaxies were formed, we can gain a better
understanding of how the universe really 'works'. Until
upgrades are made on the Hubble, or until they put a more
powerful telescope up there, we won' t be able to see the
fundation of galaxies and stars.
The Universe is Just Awesome
Sorry this post is so short guys, but I have to study
for a 'r" map. Pm thinking about making a series
devoted to the planets, let me know what you think
below!

Parents: the universe doesn't revolve around you!

13 billion years into the past?

wait, so the universe is basically a timeline of itself? what a ******** .

Light travels 186000 miles per second. it takes time for light to reach your eyes One lightyear is the distance that light can travel in a year. Stars are millions if lightyears away, therefore it takes millions of years for the light to reach us. the stars you see now may have already blown up, its just that the light of the explosion didn't reach us yet. if we were to make a telescope go very far out, we could witness the creation of earth.
User avatar #166 to #46 - ItsTheTodd (05/05/2010) [-]
The Todd says,
Theoretically if we were to put a giant mirror far enough into space, then we could then use telescopes to look at the reflection in the mirror seeing previous times (days, weeks or months depending on how far). Then use as needed, such as, if someone murdered 100 people and evidence was needed, they could look into the time mirror to locate where he was and record him slaughtering the people. The only problems with this are getting the mirror into space and making it not drift away. But soon we will be using nanotubes like plastic and something like this would seem primitive.

One thing that really confuses me, is to what the universe is expanding into. If you think about it, space is really just nothingness filled with planets, so if the space is expanding into another space wouldn't it just be the same size? I'm sure you have a better idea than me Dakunism.

omg omg omg i love the fact that if we get an incredibly powerful telescope we may actually be able to witness the big bang happening..

doesnt make sense cuz facepalm and facefist and facedesk all imply on hitting yourself with that object. Whats the point of having a gun if u just gonna hit urself with it? A rock will suffice for that

id like to know about uranus

The Big Bang theory stipulates that the center of the universe is the point which was the epicenter of the bang. Space then expanded (and continues to expand) from that point, in every direction (the universe is spherical).

Alternate theories are alot more fun though:
-Multiverse (lots of different multiverse theories)
-Expand/Collapse (big bang -> expansion -> critical density -> contraction -> big bang) cyclical
-Inverse Universe (basically, there are two universes, in which the physics of each are the exact opposites of the other)

oh thank god. i thought i was the only one thinking that part was wrong.

I'm pretty sure that one of his past things said that there was a huge black hole at the center of our universe

so...you're saying....that this guy contradicts himself?! TO THE BATMOBILE ROBIN!!!

speed of light in vacuum... 3.0x10^8
charge of an electron... 1.6 x10^-19
weins constant... 2.898 x10^-3
plancks constant... 6.62 x10^-34
stefans constant... 5.67 x10^-8
its actually quite sad i know all these off the top of my head... i hate A-level physics... :(

#245 - anon (05/06/2010) [-]
the speed of light is relative, in a car travelling at the speed of light the light from the headlights will be travelling at the speed of light relative to you, thats the entire point of relativity.

einstein never stated that my jizz could never travel the speed of light



cuz if he did... he would be mistaken
User avatar #135 - AwesomesaursRex (05/05/2010) [-]
MIND **** : The speed of light is relevant. Scientists asked each other...
"If one was traveling at the speed of light, and held up a mirror, would he see his reflection?"
ANSWER: YES. Regardless of the fact that you're going the speed of light, the speed of light remains constant. That means in the distance from your face to the mirror would be the speed of light!

Which makes sense when you think of it. Because if the above were not true, we would be blind when we reached the speed of light.

now THAT is just awesome

I like these pictures because I'm basicly learning while I'm on Funny Junk, and I'd rather do this then go to school. Make more pwease ;3
User avatar #53 - luidias (05/05/2010) [-]
@ fact 1: light is not a projectile. its velocity is not relative to an already travelling object. if that were true, you could walk forward holding a flashlight and the speed of light would be faster than it should be by the speed that you are walking.

tl;dr it doesn't work like that.

the stuff about tachyons is a potentially correct theory, tho.
User avatar #9 - Downey (05/05/2010) [-]
If you do believe in the big bang, in which case you dont believe that God created the universe, then heres a comeback you can throw at a Catholic. If they say "oh so what, the big bang just happened out of no where, just for no reason?" just say, "well thats no argument. i could say the same thing about God, how he just appeared one day."
this happened to me one time and i thought of the comeback later and was like FFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUU
#12 to #9 - Hightower (05/05/2010) [-]
There's one other explanation. The universe is never ending , and never beginning. Black holes devour anything and everything that comes within their gravitational pull. As they do they expand, as they expand the gravity increases and they pull in more and more of the surrounding matter. In the "beginning" there wasn't "void", but the remainder of the last universe in two black holes. They collided, reaching critical mass, and BOOM. A big ******* bang. And no one said "Let there be..."
#29 to #12 - iRape (05/05/2010) [-]
well actually there are white holes as well, that spew out the stuff sucked in from the black hole. And the fact is is that whether u believe in god or not we can never truly know the facts because is 14 ******* billion years ago!
#65 to #29 - Hightower (05/05/2010) [-]
White holes only theoretically exist in the same place as a black hole, IN THE PAST. Which means they used to be there, but not anymore. And they only exist for black holes that were NOT created due to a graitational collapse. But that would mean we would ahve to talk about TIME as well as SPACE, and I'm just not up for it tonight.

Yeah i've been loving this whole series so i say definitely keep it coming or branch off into specific sub categories like planets or whatever but i like the paradox stuff or like the Tachyons thats the stuff i like to learn about
#201 - anon (05/06/2010) [-]
This comment is probably just going out to deaf ears, but... Darkunism, you really don't understand the theory of relativity enough to be talking about it.

"Einstein never said anything about objects that may already be traveling at the speed of light."

Einstein actually covered all his bases; I believe the point you tried to make here is that, if a car is going near the speed of light, then the photons from its headlights would be going at TWICE the speed of light. However, the whole basis for the theory of relativity (and the Lorentz transformation) is that, relative to both the driver of the car and a person on the sidewalk, the light from the headlights is ALWAYS going at the speed of light. I'm out of words, but you get the idea.
#219 to #201 - anon (05/06/2010) [-]
The Doppler effect would go into motion, causing the head-lights to emit something with a higher frequency then visible light, like ultra-violet, x-rays, or gamma rays.
