    Yeah, but can it make waffles?

    In an infinite universe, probability has it that any imaginable thing occurs somewhere naturally. So, somewhere out there is a planet where, indeed, waffles grow on trees.

    So does this account for all the missing mass? Bugger, I was using all the missing mass to prove parallel dimensions! So are we now heading for a big crunch or are we still going to sail off into cold oblivion?

    Re: Space!

    It's a better view but I still can't seem to tell

    Let's give it some time and keep looking.

    No... this just means that more galaxies have been found. The missing dark matter is within the galaxies, including our own. Without the gravity of dark matter our own Milky Way galaxy couldn't stay together, but its stars would drift off into the void.

    Oddly enough, the forum add that showed in this topic is of a mobile phone that, if you are sleepy because of the hour change last night (and I am), looks like a multidimensional waffle iron. With icons on top of it.

    Re: Space!

    I think we humans should be aware of Finite possiblities rather Infinite, I mean how many are ****ed up and useless, we'll never know and never count or even care to. And if things are finite, they might finally and, and that's a relief. It's pitiful that something could go on for ever and ever and ever and ever....... it would be pretty boring really, pretty useless too, infinity is kind of like the droning voice of an old proffesor too old for anything but dying really.



    I'll be watching Cosmos now....

    Re: Space!

    Applying the principles of thermodynamics, one could assume that life of the universe is finite and will summarily end when all matter reaches the same temperature.

    Of course, the span of time it would take to reach such a temperature is so vast that no one can really grasp it.

    That's just when you perm iT for a while

    Things change in the universe

    Including what we can see.

    Still so very Cool, yet un-commented on

    Sorry, had to!

    That's pretty damn cool.

    Re: Space!

    Isn't (supposed) dark matter suppose to explain why galaxies hold together and (supposed) dark energy explains the behavior of galaxies regarding one another? This seems like a candidate to get rid of dark energy, now we need to figure out what's missing in the galaxies. I've always wondered about subatomic particles floating through the nothing that may be currently relevant or maybe just leftover junk from a previous iteration of a universe that once inhabited our universe's 'space', but long since 'unzipped'. Or perhaps it's a phenomena of a connected, parallel universe interacting with our own universe. Maybe that's where the excess gravity is dumped or where gravitons pop to when they get unbound from their atoms. I've always wondered about a parallel dimension that acts sort of like the 'scaffolding' behind our universe. I think that'd be pretty groovy...

    A planet where waffles grow on trees?! I call dibs!!

    Re: Space!

    I love how science can call out, well it 90% more universe, but its still the kind we only see 10% of.

    Sounds like a religion huh?

    Re: Space!

    It's like that with nearly all science, including seemingly trivial matters, e.g. that the earth is circling around the sun and not the other way around. Did you ever proove it for yourself or did you just read about people who are said to have made certain experiments or observations.

    The difference is that you are used to the established theories and not used to new ones. But surprise us with a conspiracy theory about it :smug:

    Re: Space!

    Very few of us would take the time to map the retrograde motions of the planets of our solar system.

    If really interested , however, once could easily observe the larger moons of Jiupiter with only a small telescope. In doing so, you would be tracing the steps of Gallieo ... one of the greatest scientists of all time.

    I have seen them. How about you?

    Well lets see at the same time we are exploreing farther into Space and Time as well.

    Using the Large Hadron Collider's new dataset results.

    The world's largest atom smasher set a record for high-energy collisions on Tuesday, March 30, 2010 by crashing proton beams into each other at three times more force than ever before. In a milestone in the $10 billion Large Hadron Collider's ambitious bid to reveal details about theoretical particles and microforces, scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, collided the beams and took measurements at a combined energy level of 7 trillion electron volts.

    Re: Space!

    I noticed your point, but others might not, so regard it as being directed at the others. One day you might be grateful for me making you explain your posting :whistling:.

    A few years ago I tried it with binoculars (which should be good enough to see them), but my hands weren't calm enough and I didn't have a tripod for it. But you made me curious again, maybe I will build something with Lego stones or so :D
