Humbling Comparison SO WHY WORRY


Recommended Posts

Now, THIS is really fascinating, and humbling comparison as well – most of us never give it any thought whatsoever, but it's rather dazzling to see it presented this way.

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky.

 

It is more than 1000 light years away.

The universe is so vast it is not comprehensible by the human mind. It would be like an ant trying to understand the wonder of the internet. It can't be done.

 

 

 

The universe humbles us as it should.

The Big Bang Theory is the dominant scientific theory about the origin of the universe. According to the big bang, the universe was created sometime between 10 billion and 20 billion years ago from a cosmic explosion that hurled matter and in all directions.

 

In 1927, the Belgian priest Georges Lemaître was the first to propose that the universe began with the explosion of a primeval atom. His proposal came after observing the red shift in distant nebulas by astronomers to a model of the universe based on relativity. Years later, Edwin Hubble found experimental evidence to help justify Lemaître's theory. He found that distant galaxies in every direction are going away from us with speeds proportional to their distance.

 

The big bang was initially suggested because it explains why distant galaxies are traveling away from us at great speeds. The theory also predicts the existence of cosmic background radiation (the glow left over from the explosion itself). The Big Bang Theory received its strongest confirmation when this radiation was discovered in 1964 by Arno Penzias and Robert Wilson, who later won the Nobel Prize for this discovery.

 

Although the Big Bang Theory is widely accepted, it probably will never be proved; consequentially, leaving a number of tough, unanswered questions

and the main question being what or who ignited the first bang,its like saying the lambert & butler ime about to smoke will be lit from a flame that is a distant relative from the first ever flame one way or another

Hence why this is posted in the non-z discussion forum!!

 

Oh all right then

 

Here goes if I make an arse of meself so be it.

 

Gases floating around at random would hit each other and join to make atoms and particles and then grow into larger bits and bobs and then into planets and suns, (am I right so far?) So there must be edges to bounce off or you would loose bits as they drift into nothingness.
