  1. Thanks! That was pretty much the answer I was looking for.
  2. Interesting. So the time dilation effect in our local group of galaxies is not that notable. How about distant galaxies then? Those, which have a relative velocity of near c to us. Wouldn't exploring those be a problem?
  3. Hello! I have been thinking about space exploration and have come across an interesting problem. I haven't seen anyone mention this before, bu here it goes: The biggest problem right now with traveling to other stars/galaxies is the light speed gap. We cannot even come close to light speed at this time. An alternative that is frequently proposed is using wormholes or shortcuts in space-time. Ok, lets assume that we have the technology to create wormholes and we could use them to transport ships to other galaxies in an instant. Here is were I came across jet another problem. If we send a
  4. Because I was talking about absolute zero. You where talking about close to zero. They are two different things. and you where adding parameters from this universe to this question for no apparent reason.
  5. So basically what you are saying is that this is an impossible scenario and cannot be answered?
  6. ok, so where exactly do I divide by zero? The equation is: 1 / ∞ x 100 = 0.(0) x 100 = 0.(0) = 0
  7. ughaibu, could you please define "countable infinity" and "uncountable infinity" and compare the two. I don't seem to understand what you mean by them.
  8. Are you kidding me? The lottery has odds with finite numbers. It's not like there are infinity amount of tickets and only one wins.:esmoking: Just 1 unit is right, the rest infinity are wrongs. That is totally irrelevant. You have all the information you need. How so? Short answer: No :hyper: I gave you the parameters of a universe (with infinity objects, 1 is "right"). There is no need to put any parameters from our own universe to this equation.
  9. Hi ! Let's say that there is an infinity amount of objects and only one of those objects is the "right" one. What would be the chances of the "right" one being picked? Looking at this mathematically I would say it's ZERO. Because the chances are 1 to infinity of the right "right" choice being made. The way I came to this conclusion is this way: Lets say there are 2 objects and only 1 is right. Obviously the probability is 50%. In the case of 10 objects the probability would decrease to 10%. With 10 000 it would be 0.01%, because 1 / 10000 x 100 = 0.01. As we can see the probability is n
  10. hehe.. I love this argument. I could respond to that with this: We can never know if we can ever know exactly happens in any event... and we can never know if that is true either. Wouldn't you agree? :confused:
  11. So basically we don't know exactly what happens in these extreme events jet? Well that's quite understandable, as physics are not 100% accurate jet.
  12. Okay, now moving on. If an object is moving fast enough will its mass turn so large that is collapses into a black hole? The problem that I see here is that for the stationary observer the objects mass will be large enough to turn into a black hole (assuming this happens) but to another (something moving at half the speed of the primary object) it will not.
  13. If I am not mistaking the faster an object is going the higher it's mass will become, but this has to be relative to something right? If two objects are going at 0.8 c in the same direction they don't see the other moving at all, so their perception of the other mass should remain the same, right? However to a stationary observer both of the moving objects masses would increase? If this is true then I have a question concerning of this and back holes, but lets leave it at this for the moment.
  14. E=mc2 is like 8=4x2 8 / 4x2 = 8/8=1 mhmh...:shrug:
  15. Riper, of course it would take place in space. If it was started on Earth it would move out of the atmosphere in a very-very short time. In a vacume I don't think it matters how fast you are going to damage the moving object, because there are no obstacles in your way to damage it. And controllability is not the same thing in space, because balance (like on the road) is not a issue there and there is no wind resistance to deal with.
