More Interesting and Awe Inspiring
theor" ges About the Universe
Neutron stars are one ofthe possible ends for a star.
They result from massive stars " times the mass of
our sun. The interesting thing is, neutron stars are
only about " km across. The astounding thing is,
that they are so dense, that one teaspoonful on Earth
would weigh one billion tons! Neutron stars oan also
have magnetic 'r" gelds that are a million times
stronger than any magnetic 'f" gotd produced on Earth.
The resulting faroe of gravity is so strong that if an
object were to fall from a height of one meter it
would only take one microsecond " hit the surface
ofthe neutron star, and it would do so at around Tdot
million kilometers per hour!
o can honestly say that I don' t know much about neutron stars,
though I have been reading up on them lately so I decided to add it
in. If you feel I have left anything out or gotten anything wrong,
please, flame me below.)
Is there life on any other planet in the universe? Are we
really alone in this incomprehensible void we oall the
universe? Scientists have been trying to answer this
question ever singe man eould look to the stars above.
But, the answer may lie within our very solar system. The
above picture is that of Europa, one of many moons that
Jupiter posesses. An ioe bovered moon with perhaps no
evidence of life on it' s surface. But what eould lie beneath
the ioe is what intrigues scientists. The 'veins' that
appear on Europa' s surface suggest that beneath it' s ioy
must, may lie free moving water. Water, being one of the
main building bloak of life, may be the answer to the big
question. As our oceans are teaming with hundreds of
thousands if not millions of different species, one eould
only imagine what lies beneath. NASA is currently
working on a probe that will land on Europa and drill
through the miles of ioe to expose the water below. Until
then, we oan only dream of life other than our own.
Time is an odd thing. When you look through a telescope
into deep space, you are essentially going baak in time. If
these colliding galaxies were wmm Lightyears away, you
would be seeing what happened to them nun years in the
past. It is not possible to look deep into space and see
things in their present.
While you' re still getting over that semi ******** , I present
you with this example. The Grandfather clause Proposes
that if time travel were possible and you went baak in time
and killed your grandfather, you would cease to exist. The
only problem is, if you killed your grandfather and never
existed, how would you go baak in time to kill your
grandfather'? You would have never existed, therefore
never having been able to go baak in time and shoot your
grandfather and cease your existence, so you would exist;
But if you did exist then you would go baak in time and
cease your existence only to 'ttwtt out that you would not
be able to kill your grandfather because you never existed.
Are those Brain fumes I smell‘?!
The Universe is Just Awesome
All the possibilities to be explored. All the unknown
outcomes to be discovered. The universe is full of
surprises! I WILL be making more Just because i get
excited whenever I think of the " number of results
there oan be from an " number of ,

Technicaly the grandfather parodox is solvable with either one of 2 theories, the first is that you can't change the past because the past already knows of your being there. So if you went back to the past to kill your grandfather, **** will happen so you dont. Like, you'll only be able to hurt him and then he goes to the hospital and finds a nurse that looks surprisingly like your grandma...
The second is the theory that there is an infinite number of dimensions and every possibility exists (Steven Hawking approves of this). Ergo... when you would go back in time, you will travel to another dimension where your grandfather dies young and you still exist because you were born for your grandfather of the dimension from which you came.

BRAIN FUMES ARE BLOWN AWAY!!! Steven Hawking showed that you could kill your grandfather or your younger self. It would be possible because of the previously posted Multi-Verse Theory. He stated that IF you went back in time, and killed your (father, grandfather, mother, grandmother...pick one any relative...i don't care) you would simply create a universe in which you did not exist. You could travel back to your time, but you wouldn't exist, you would be in all sense of the word, anonymous. Every bit of you and your history would be changed, and in some ways the world will have changed and the. You can prevent yourself from being born, but it will **** with your existence. TL;DR - You can kill your grandfather by Multi-Verse theory.

You can kill your own grandfather as long as you have sex with your grandmother. Thus becoming your own grandfather. Haven't you people ever seen Futurama before?

Wow, this is the stupidest one yet. Do you have ANY idea how unlikely it is that there is life on Europa? It's not even worth mentioning. And the thing about time travel was completely idiotic. We can't see stars in their present because it takes time for light to get to us. Of course, the definition of "the present" depends on how you view time, but I'm not going to get into the theory of relativity right now. And the "grandfather clause"? Time travel is impossible, so why even mention it?

I don't know WHAT this crap is, but it's definitely not FACTS about the UNIVERSE. Do you know what a FACT is?

You suck. This is a great post. Plus, that planet has the same chance of life as we did.

I solved the grandfather clause.
You wouldnt be able to kill him, because energy can never be created or destroyed, so going back in time would be like going into a different dimension, and that would mean you would make a duplicate of yourself, but because you cant create new energy, it wouldn't be possible. So, all you could hope to do is to just go back in time, but be unable to alter anything, and just sit there and watch.

And, I see going back in time as going into a different dimension that is just like ours, just not as old, so if you wanted to go back in time from 2010 to 2005, you would go into a different dimension where the current date is 2005, so altering something would have no consequences, since it's a different dimension.

these are sweet, I love them, but I saw a discovery program called "Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking" I was up really late watching it one school night because it was so awesome. I'm not sure if you study this stuff or you just watched that, but I wish that I would be able to live in a time when all this stuff was answered

ive always been fascinated by astronomy but seeing that show inspired me to make these
#233 - anonymous (05/04/2010) [+] (2 replies)
we cant travel back in time. the radiation naturally in the air would loop, like sound in a mike system. if it continues, you get that squeelie noise. if the radiation continues to loop, it would kill you and destroy the worm hole type thing i assume your using. but time travel to the future might be possible due to relativity.
not all anons are trolls. though most of us are...
