    • 1566 Words
    • 7 Pages

    Energy is a mysterious and everlasting component which exists within the universe; it is the existential source of power which human beings have harnessed through technology in order to progress and evolve. It is fair to note that energy is quintessential to every action and reaction occurring in the universe at all times. Furthermore, the law of conservation of energy states that energy cannot be created nor destroyed but can be transferred between different forms and states and even between objects. The transfer and application of energy to technology is a power human beings have been wielding and harnessing for years. Moreover, there is still so much to learn in terms of energy acting within the universe. Every day human beings continue…

    The great Neil deGrasse Tyson once said something along the lines of humans have only discovered about 4% of the universe. Not only does my fear of what I don't know going on below my feet in the ocean scare the crap out of me, but that big star filled sky does as well. It doesn't just scare me, but it probably scares and excites scientists studying it all over the world. Since we only know a fraction of the inter-workings of the universe, there are many questions and things going on that we…

    • 9 Pages

    and effects of such expansion in the universe are addressed to create a deeper understanding of how we can learn from our past to better our future. One of the most profound questions that baffled scientists for generations was, does our universe end, and if so where. Here, the theme of expansion first emerges in the story of Big Bang cosmology. As soon as scientists realised that the universe was not static, they immediately understood that it was in fact expanding, and that once in the past,…

    Marie von Ebner Eschenbach once said, “In youth we learn; in age we understand.” I agree with this quote. During youth we learn and experience a lot of our “firsts.” Our first word, first steps, first bully, first fight, first kiss, first relationship, first love and first time. Thus, when we get older we evolve and understand more of what life is and what is expected of you. Though I am merely fifteen years old and haven’t graduated high school yet, I’ve matured and have learned from my…

    The following paper is on each of four subjects: black holes, dark matter, dark energy, and the multiverse theory. The first subject is black holes, which are regions of space having a gravitational field so intense that no matter or radiation can escape. Their existence is greatly debated over, and it still has not been determined whether they exist. The second subject is dark matter. Dark matter is a placeholder that cannot be seen. It accounts for 27% of the matter in the universe, but like…

    Dark matter and dark energy are perhaps the biggest mysteries in the universe. Dark matter makes up 26% of the universe, dark energy makes up 69% of the universe, and ‘normal’ matter- everything visually observed in the universe- makes up only 5% of the universe. Dark matter and energy are thought to be explanations for various phenomena that have been observed in deep space. Dark matter is matter that cannot be detected by its absorption or emission of electromagnetic radiation. Scientists…

    One concept that has interested is dark matter and dark energy. Dark matter is the thing that makes it possible for galaxies to exist. When astrophysicists and cosmologist calculated why the universe is structure the way it is, it became clear that there’s just not enough normal matter. The gravity of the visible matter is not strong enough to from galaxies and complex structures. The starts would more likely be scattered all over the place and not form galaxies. Therefore, cosmologist concluded…
