Posted on 08/15/2011 4:59:08 AM PDT by econjack
This is a video of two deep space experiments using the Hubble space telescope. First, Hubble was pointed to a "dark" spot in space and left to collect data for 10 days to see if anything was there. The second is to use this data and the Red Shift to create a 3D image. The result is presented here. To me, pretty amazing stuff.
The Hubble site itself has zoomable images. http://hubblesite.org/newscenter/archive/releases/1996/01
Ever since taking college level physics and learning the time travel is impossible and traveling at the speed of light is impossible(infinite mass thing) I lost interest in the cosmos. Even if something ( a space ship) could travel at the speed of light if it ever collided with the smallest speck of dust it would explode. It just ain’t happening. The human species will always remain here, stuck on the third rock from the sun. Forget about it.
It wasn’t till the 1930s that we found that the universe consisted of more than just our galaxy. Its entirely possible that we’ll one day find that our universe is one of many that are part of something more.
"The heavens declare the glory of God"
Gotta watch this mic!
You’re talking about mass moving through time and space.
Gotta think outside the box.
Somehow - SOMEHOW! - time is an illusion. Everything and everyplace that ever existed or will exist is here right now at our fingertips.
Not likely.I know eye has not seen nor ear heard those things that God has in store for those who love Him but I can't help looking at images like those and thinking...one day.
Then please explain how heroes like Shirley Maclaine and other Hollywood stars make it back and forth between Earth and Gorlon? Wouldja?
I agree that it will need to be another way. Faster than light speed even if possible would be useless due to the fact that it would be a one way trip because of relativity.
Hey! This can’t be! The Left says there Ain’t NO GOD! This all happened from a BIG Bang from Nothing! And that every beautiful living creation just evolved from nothing! BullCrap!
When I read and understood Bells theorem, that stuned me.
It’s not just the non-locality of space that’s the result. It also applies to non-locality of time.
You could wake up, go out to get the paper and have a pterodactyl on you front porch.
It’s not likely. But it is possible.
I'm all for "big".... REALLY REALLY B I G !!!
I have degrees in Physics and Mathematics and I’m here to tell you that you didn’t learn enough. Time and space can be bent (any gravity well). Worm holes are nearly a mathematical certainty. You don’t have to travel faster than the speed of light to travel light years in short time spans.
you are assuming we know all there is to know about space travel?
What if Bob Lazaar was right (I am only half joking about that) about a gravity propulsion drive?
You point it where you want to go and create a wormhole that takes you there immediately
“Mind travel”....imagination explosions. It’s all in their brain....while asleep...they never leave the ground at all. But they imagine they do.
Imagine if all our dreams and imaginations of our minds we spread as reality.
I’m having trouble with the whole big bang thing with this. Why for instance, if the bang went off 13 billion years ago, can you not see the edge of the universe at about 7 billion light years out? How did these galaxys get so far out after only 1/2 billion years?
On the other hand, is this now enough matter to support the bang?
I think we are looking at creation, not science.
It still boggles my mind that all of this began as a Singularity...a single, dimensionless point in time and space...and expanded into what we see today. Given that we know the universe is still expanding, what’s it expanding into? I’m not smart enough to understand this.
Amen....INFINITY!! God is INFINITE!
The alchemist has a better chance of reaching his goals.
Pish posh.I'm sure the Author of those laws will have something to say in that regard.
Easiest if you look at it this way.
The big bang didn’t “happen”.
The big bang is still happening.
The big bang, despite its acceptance is still just a theory. My biggest problems with it are the fact that science has removed certain physical properties to explain its earliest seconds.
If you pursued those disciplines, math and physics, and you harbor the notion inter stellar travel by humans is possible than you are seriously deluded FRiend.
That would be horrible. I dreamed last night I was given three forks for dinner but couldn’t decide which one to use for my salad. When I finally made a decision the salad turned to soup and I went hungry.
>>> If you have trouble wrapping your head around the concept of infinity and a universe that is expanding “into something”
Suppose you lived inside a balloon. As the balloon inflated, how could you imagine what outside space it expands into.
seriously, do you think we know all there is to know about interstellar travel?
I suggest you go back to the books and read about something called “the tunnel effect”.
It’s instantaneous. Faster than light. Just like Bell’s quantum entanglement.
We don’t know how to produce or control it.
If I were you, I’d call that college. They might give you a refund.
Thanks for the awesome new desktop backgrounds!
When I look at those images I think of home,I think of the timeless eternity we will spend with the Creator of all that is.I think of the Captain of our salvation leading many sons to glory.To see the creation is to know the Creator.It leaves me in humbled awe at what He has wrought and who He is.
you missed my central question- do you think we know everythign there is to know about internstellar travel.
By all we know right now, yes- you are right. But I dont assume we know everything by a long shot.
FTL travel is impossible, but wormhole travel does not violate FTL.
I posted a link to the Fermi Paradox above, try reading it.
We only need to get to say 1/8 the speed of light to put Alpha Centauri within a generation.
In the next life, travel between worlds will not be at the speed of light. Much too slow. It will be at the speed of THOUGHT.
You know will not make fun of your beliefs. I’ll stick to science. The universe is a boring, lifeless and violent place that should be of little interest to us humans. But I will not belittle someones hobby.
So you're saying we're going to have to rely on the old matter transporter then...or wormholes.
Bookmarking for when I get home to view on something other than a work connection that blocks all the content on the target site.
I think a big part of the problem is that our early physics is based on 3 dimensional geometry.
But the algebra of higher dimensions is well known, and doesn’t always easily get represented in 3D.
So I say “think outside the box”... maybe I should say “think outside the tesseract”....
That's my problem. There must be "something" into which to expand. So what's it expanding into? If it's expanding into a "void", then the void itself is something. In your analogy, what is the balloon floating in? I'm starting to think it's a parallel universe and we are encroaching into that space.
You need to do a bit more reading, for example read up on the Alcubierre Drive.
Silliness. People read to much science fiction
Or...from a Suess-ish viewpoint, we examine atoms - which it is agreed have particles orbiting nucleii. What if our universe constitutes the atoms of an even larger creation. Do I hear a Who?
I am surprised. You should know that time travel is not impossible. It has been proven. Have you not heard of the time dilation effect? This has been proven as fact in numerous experiments. And it effectively proves that travel into the future is also possible.
I would concede that time travel into the past is impossible. But that's it.
For the FOURTH time I ask you- Do you think we know all there is to know about interstellar travel?
The fermi ‘paradox’ is an intellectual exercize- nothing more. For thousands of years we had no ovidence of ‘electrons’ but that did not mean they didnt exist. the same argument applies- there are probably many things we have not yet seen evidence of- but they do exist.
You sound like you read a thing or two and formuilated a rock-solid belief. This is all theory.
Einstein's theory never actually said things couldn't go faster than light. It said things *with mass* couldn't be accelerated TO the speed of light or slowed down to the speed of light (if the object was somehow already traveling faster than light.), for it would take an infinity amount of energy to do either. Objects without mass (photons, gravity waves/gravitons, tachyons) can travel at light speed.
Let us assume the existence of wormholes (or however one wishes to express a negotiable rift in the fabric of space/time). Is it not true that a distant visitation point targeted via visible light might be found to no longer exist upon one’s “arrival”?
