"They did not like the extra-scientific
implications of the theory," wrote Michael J. Beche, so they worked hard to find alternatives. The
universe had a moment of creation in consequence has a creator.Relativity, a theory developed
at the beginning of the twentieth century, originally intended to explain certain anomalies in the
concept of relative movement, but which in its evolution has become one of the most important
basic theories in the physical sciences (see Physics). This theory, developed fundamentally by
Albert Einstein, was the basis for physicists to demonstrate the essential unity of matter and
energy, space and time, and the equivalence between the forces of gravitation and the effects of
the acceleration of a system.? Black hole, hypothetical celestial body with a gravitational field so
strong that not even the electromagnetic radiation can escape its proximity. The body is
surrounded by a spherical boundary, called the event horizon, through which light can enter, but
it cannot come out, so it appears to be completely black. A field of these characteristics may
correspond to a high density body with a relatively small mass, such as that of the Sun or…
these scenarios are the facts of the world. You are you, you have not become something that you are not, and the world is as it is. The only place that these fantastical ideas can exist are in the world of fiction, because we live in one universe with one past and an unknowable future. But, what if that was not necessarily true? What if there were multiple versions of our universe, each with their own version of you. That may be closer to the truth than we realize. Through quantum mechanics and…
Discussion – Tayla Dorrington
There are 2 major theories about the universe and how it began. These are the steady state and The Big Bang theory. Both theories have an explanation on how our Universe is, how it began and how it works. Both theories have stuff in common but also have many differences that could completely change the way we look at the Universe. The Big Bang Theory has much more evidence supporting it, while the Steady State Theory has been proven wrong.
- Have you ever thought about visiting the universe? Or have over viewed it? It is amazing how scientists are able to make discoveries about the universe. Incredibly, scientists have invented special instruments that can tell wether an object is moving away from Earth or towards it, and they also made many other such instruments. Yet, there are many questions an average person would ask such as, How was the universe formed, how old is the universe, and will the universe expand forever?
Best phrased by surgeon, author, and inventor Leonard Shlain in his book, Art & Physics, “Revolutionary art and visionary physics are both investigations into the nature of reality.” However dissimilar Vincent van Gough’s Starry Night may seem from Isaac Newton’s second law of motion, according to Shlain, this is what fundamentally unifies the two subjects. Physics is the study of the natural world, while art is the representation of it. Art has been part of our culture longer than any of the…
The article, “Our Universe could be reborn as a bouncing baby cosmos” by Lisa Grossman suggests that there may be a new theory to how the universe began, that seems to be more accurate than the current theory. This new theory created by Neil Turok and Steffen Gielen is the new Big Bounce model; not to be confused with the older big bounce-big crunch model. This model, unlike all other past contenders, has been able to begin the first steps in an accurate description to how the universe…

Grit- Book Review
The uncertainty of the world is what makes it the breeding ground for scientific exploration and discovery. There a multitudes of questions, left unanswered, whether it be the creation of the universe, or the complex in workings known as the human brain. One of these great anomalies is the question, how do people become successful? There are numerous ways in which one might answer such a question, from personal belief to scientific…

Laughter in Anthropocene: solution or ignorance?
For almost twelve thousand years, our planet lived in an analogously stable epoch named Holocene by the scientists (McNeill and Engelke 1). Holocene (entirely new) period is impressively…
The Big Bang is the most widely accepted theory about how our universe first began. This theory was first proposed by Belgian priest Georges Lemaître in the 1920’s. It suggests the universe was once condensed into a space equivalent to less than a grain of sand and expanded to billions of kilometers wide in about a second producing incredible amounts of heat. Everything you see is from that rapid expansion. That’s difficult to imagine, however, 3 major pieces of evidence support this; Hubble’s…
In the year 2000, the American Museum of Natural History posted an essay as an online resource, Profile: Georges Lemaître, Father of the Big Bang. An excerpt from Cosmic Horizons: Astronomy at the Cutting Edge. It was edited by Steven Soter and Neil deGrasse Tyson.
The profile begins with a simple explanation of the expanding universe and how Georges Lemaître published his mathematical findings that today we know as the Big Bang theory.
Soter and deGrasse Tyson provide…
