how the universe works
    #652613 - 12/24/12 08:52 AM (3 years, 11 months ago)

It's a show about stars and black holes and galaxies and what not.

I literally feel lightheaded from trying to even begin to understand the enormity of our own solar system, much less our galaxy. This show keeps blowing my mind and its a wonderful feeling.

Feel free to post awesome space facts and pictures. Theories and rants welcome and encouraged.

Why should that mean it isn't real?

The more I learn about this stuff, the more I feel like its a possibility that our entire universe is just the inside of an atom in another universe.

reminds me of the end of one of those movies, where the universe is inside a marble and the aliens are playing jacks or something..

I watch the discovery channel universe dvd's a lot. They were a good investment.

I watch it sooo much!

Almost all the episodes are on youtube. The Big bang hour and a half episode is my favorite.


Dark matter and Dark energy is a pretty good episode too.



Generic science factoid: Basically every element other than Hydrogen and Helium was in some way created by a star through fusion.

We are star dust, living on a star chunk, eating other star stuff, even those feelz are star stuff.

Awesome to know there are these things we know are doing shit, but don't have any clue where/what it is.

It's just there is definitely more gravity than the observable mass should have. We just need to know what the fuck that "dark matter" is.

May just be one of those things we'll never understand, fully anyways..

Regardless, it's interesting.. Some of the photo's from the telescopes are amazing.

When i heard it say dark matter is probably constantly passing through us without our knowledge, I thought - what if there's an entire world of people made of dark matter right here, just in another dimension kinda. I'm sure that's not how it works, I haven't seen the episode yet, but it would be too fucking cool. 

Also, the marbles movie was the first men in black :smile:

Neutrinos are crazy too. Pass through us all the time.

That's what I was thinking, but I couldn't remember if it was that 1 or independence day. I've only seen them both a handful of times..

Makes you ponder how much we don't know about the universe, and how much we probably never will..

Here's a thought for you. Light travels at the speed of 186000 miles per second. Most stars are thousands of light years away. When you look up at the sky at night the light that left those stars took over 8000 years traveling threw space before it hit your eye. What your seeing when you look up at the stars is how they looked on average 8000 years ago. So the light hitting your eye as you look up left that star 6000 years before Jesus was born. :wink:


Just to get a idea of how fast that light is moving it can go around the world 7 times a second.

Here are some more numbers for you. We are in the Milky Way Galaxy. Travel 186000 miles a second which is the speed of light. To go across the Milky Way it would take 140000 years to cross it traveling at the speed of light. That is just 1 galaxy. Look up and cut your view of space into sections. 13100000 sections to be exact. Now look at each one of those sections with a telescope like the Hubble. In each of those sections there are 10000 galaxies. :omgawesome:


When a star collapses and turns into a white dwarf. Imagine the surface area of the sun jammed into the space the size of the earth. Take 1 sq centimeter of the material that the white dwarf is made of and bring it to earth and it weighs a ton. :awedance:
