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...
m Hubble Hubble Ultra '.

f First Malanie's
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!

"shows them this post"

CLOSE ENOUGH

13 billion years into the past?

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

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..

actually, we already know Who the center of the universe is. His first name is Chuck. dare i speak His Last Name?

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.

I think your retarted. Light always travels 186 thousand mph relative you everyone. If your in that car and you turn on your lights then relative to you they go the speed of light. That isn ot faster than the speed of light. Even relative to someone not moving next to the car they see the light traveling at the speed of light. Your dumb go die.

'Retarted'
Oh irony, how I love thee.

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
User avatar #11 to #9 - supersparta (05/05/2010) [-]
I always think of my comebacks after the arguments are over.

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)

You are worng good sir. The center of the universe is where the big bang occurred and the universe is always expanding out from that pojnt.
User avatar #293 to #287 - IronDragon (05/06/2010) [-]
Everyone is wrong! Bacon is the center of the universe!

BRILLIANT. i daresay that you sir may have cracked a theory *twiddles mustache*

I can't keep thinking about what comes after the universe. I don't believe it's nothing, but if there is matter outside the universe, then what comes after that area? It's a ******** .

Sometimes I wonder if our universe is just a molecule in some larger universe. But that's retarded. lol
User avatar #42 to #38 - TehDogman (05/05/2010) [-]
our universe is just a tiny cell of chuck norris

Just like you to know you botched the speed of light part. You didn't at all mention Einsteins Theory of Special Relativity, which is the key concept to understanding why nothing can travel faster than light. [within a constant vacuum]

Also light has an instant acceleration, you don't "accelerate at the speed of light" you travel at its velocity or speed, they are two different things.

Space expands, so two objects can travel faster than the speed of light relative to each other if space is also stretching between them.

You also didn't mention time, mass or space dilation, the most interesting parts! Time slows down, mass increases and space shortens when you approach the speed of light [relative to an observer]

Maybe you should post something for us smarter folks out there. Dakunism is just trying to dumb it down enough for those who don't have advanced degrees and those who just don't get physics. Myself, I would love it if someone would go deeper into it. But then, I'm a dude who hates questions without answers.

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.

so if we found a planet a few million lightyears away that looks like it might support life in the future, it may be teaming with life already but we cant see it because we see the past!

I say we nuke them. By the time they have their armada ready to invade us, we already have a Thermonuclear warhead on the way.

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.

this is so cool, im so fascinated by all of this, and all of your other posts aswell, are you studying physics?
#5 - chenzmack (05/05/2010) [-]
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
User avatar #3 - Dominos (05/05/2010) [-]
i love this! thank you :D
#1 - anonymous (05/05/2010) [+] (6 replies)
actually there is a center. just because something is expanding, doesn't mean there isn't a center... it would be impossible to NOT have a center. So, thanks for being stupid.
User avatar #6 to #1 - MyNameIsARickRoll (05/05/2010) [-]
thanks for being an anon- gtfo
