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 ,

In The Grandfather Clause...your life would basicaly split into two paradoxes.
One where you are still alive and never killed your grandfather.
Another where your grandfather is dead, and you cease to exist.

Stephen Hawking...and Stephen King taught me that one.
User avatar #611 to #608 - mtrerise (08/17/2010) [-]
not two paradoxes, you cannot create a new paradox because of that, I think you mean two universes
User avatar #612 to #611 - LoudPipesRinging (08/17/2010) [-]
I did mean a new universe....but i can't delete my comment and didn't want to correct myself. (:
User avatar #613 to #612 - mtrerise (08/17/2010) [-]
yeah I understand, some ********* thumb down for correction
User avatar #603 - theFbomb (05/06/2010) [-]
I see what you did thar.
You can't go back in time and kill your grandfather if you don't exist in that time.

neutron stars are awesome... especially when they collapse.

neutron stars are collapsed stars that are held up simply because they cannot occupy the same space at the same time. That is until the gravitational force overcomes this limitation by a true ******** , all the neutrons collapse into a single point occupying the same space and become a black hole.

At least that's what i read. but it was quite a few years ago. perhpas they have better theories now.

When you talk about life on that moon are you refering to micro-organisms or inteligent life? This I my theory, at some point in my life I remember hearing that there is a .000001% chance of inteligent life for every like million light years (pardon me if Im way off, Im only 14 so I have no real source of this info). The universe is ever expanding, each second it grows larger and larger. This means if you were to mulitiply that .000001% by the number of million light years (which is infinite) then there is over 100% chance that there is some form of inteligent life :D I wish I had some source but it was just something I heard from Discovery Channel or something like that :P

Holy ******** at the end
but every time i read it, it begins to make more sense
what class in school would i have to take to learn this **** , that would be awesome
#591 - anonymous (05/05/2010) [-]
my favorite time travel clause. Fry from futurama becoming his own grandfather.
#590 - zombeestonight (05/05/2010) [-]
God, that clause at the end was ******** .

Like looking into two opposing mirrors.
User avatar #589 - Awakive (05/05/2010) [-]
Weird thing is I actually understood that ******** at the end
User avatar #588 - Enygma (05/05/2010) [-]
Moar of these!!! I love universe facts, there cool!!
User avatar #581 - Mickysyr (05/05/2010) [-]
If you think about it though, we are always seeing the past, since we can only see what light particles hit and then reflect into our eye. So looking at my computer right now, I am seeing it as it was the tiniest fraction of a second ago, not in the actual present. The effect just multiplies over great distances. It works the same way with sound, but since sound travels almost a million times slower than light it is much more obvious.
#598 to #581 - midniterequiem (05/06/2010) [-]
its also even worse because you have to factor in the amount of time it takes to transduce and be comprehended by our brains.

if there was ice on the planet, wouldn't that count as water too?
User avatar #587 to #578 - jonnybtx (05/05/2010) [-]
no see most "ice" in space is really frozen carbon and if you drank that you would die a slow and painful death
#577 - anonymous (05/05/2010) [-]
well the thing is that if u went back in time and shot ur own grandpa a new timeline would be created from the one that u would know and ur existance would dissapear.its a paradox yes but it has a start and when it happens and changes the future so it dosent happen twice.
#580 to #577 - cypher (05/05/2010) [-]
How would you know, you've never done it.
User avatar #575 - Nightinear **User deleted account** (05/05/2010) [-]
Like you said with the parallel universes, then if i go back in time and shoot my grandpa it wont effect in my time because it's like an other universe. So you wont get born in that timeline but your grandfather may still be alive in your present

i gave the 1000th thumb up!!!!!!!!!

I didn't read it, but I appreciate it.

User avatar #571 - iananarchy (05/05/2010) [-]
Since when is having to read lots of words fun. I like the pictures.
User avatar #570 - kenkman (05/05/2010) [-]
anyone get that

Stephen Hawking theorizes that time travel to the past is impossible because if we could stretch a worm hole big enough to fit a man through the radiation would go through it like feedback on a mic and speaker and inevitably destroy it.... but time travel to the future he says is possible. :D that's something else all together.
User avatar #609 to #569 - LoudPipesRinging (06/03/2010) [-]
Time travel to the future, you'd have to be on a train that would travel at almost the speed of light.
But, since the laws of physics keep anything from traveling faster than the speed of light, everyone on the train would be slowed down a helluva lot.
So, if the train goes around the circumfrence of the Earth for 50 years, everyone on the train would have only gone through one week.

..We may or may not have watched the same show about this.
