  1. Singularities – otherwise called dark gaps – are ground-breaking to such an extent that even light can't get away from their grip. In any case, what happens when a dark opening meets something considerably more grounded, similar to a wormhole? We realize a dark opening would win in a battle against Godzilla, Earth's yellow sun, and even the whole Milky Way. Be that as it may, a wormhole? That is a difficult task. Certainly, wormholes are just theoretical so they're off guard against dark gaps – which we've really watched. Anyway that may be the dark gap's just bit of leeway. Where a
  2. Hello Everyone, This is a concept that had been bouncing around in my head. Is there a feasible way of developing a vehicle to travel across a Planet's Magnetic Field Lines? Is there a way to develop an electromagnetic device that would replicate the effects of a superconductor pinning magnetic fields to hold its position. In the mess of magnetic field lines that shield our planet, there are many shallower lines that may be capable of sending a ship into orbit. The ship could even field line hop to to change its orbiting distance. Thus can we create a vehicle that can entrap and coast thro
  3. One night I was walking home from a friends house looking up at the sky, all of a sudden when I was focusing on one star and It just looked like it randomly had exploded, like as if it expanded and vanished within 1 second, it looked much bigger when it was expanded too, did I witness a star light years away and at that moment just happened to be when time caught up with the star explosion? It still puzzles me and I keep questioning if I really had witnessed a star explosion
  4. I want to share with you my hypothesis about spacetime, time and observers. What do you think about my following hypothesis: Reality, in itself, without observers, is a manifold, a 4D-object. Spacetime is this 4D-object, which is not directly observable/measurable, but only deducable. Spacetime is therefore, in my opinion, a Platonic entity, very real, even more 'real' then our relativistic observations of time and space, but pure abstract to us, and mathematical to us. We can’t observe it directly. So, the mathematicians and theoretical physisists should like this idea that reality n itse
  5. This is my most recent draft. I hope it summarises my core argument first and has clearer writing about the other peripheral subjects later. Warning: it's fairly long, but the first 2 points are so worth it! Stop at Blue Mars if you wish as that's half way, and everything after there becomes a bit more speculative. MARS V the BELTERS While I eventually would love to see *all* of the solar system settled and O'Neil colonies everywhere, I think we should start with Mars first. There are 3 main reasons: the City Size Bonus, Technology Bottlenecks, and the Myth of Self-Replication Mining ship
  6. Space is alone confusing. Calculating physics in a 5 dimensional simulation requires 5 variables per dimension. That's 25 different variables. Now imagine, those variables multiplying per every instance of time since the Big Bang to whatever future our race may hold. Lot to take in at once so we use rounding (calculating approximate results). As of now, we haven't yet discovered the smallest instance of time. Second? Micro-Second? Nano-Second? To first understand the smallest thing, you must understand how we can get to it. Detailed explanation of why rounding is necessary and why we will al
  7. Here something new to talk about: https://futurism.com/elon-musk-with-new-spacex-tech-rocket-costs-will-drop-by-a-factor-of-100/
  8. Hi all, In school, we've been taught that while in space; we can float around and have no weight at all. You can float around, yes. Having no weight at all is an entirely different story. The formula for weight is what? : Mass * Gravity. Now if I'm to prove my point, I need to first prove that space isn't Zero-G (Zero Gravity). Let's for instance take the sun; all planets are in a orbit around it, due to? Yes, Gravity! So if for some reason you jumped out of your rocket, you won't leave the Galaxy. You'll just obtain an orbit around the sun unless you're accelerating at high levels. So
  9. Hi everyone, I normally don't like to do this, but I think this is a special case. I am a huge space enthusiast as well as my Brother Peter. He is currently running a kickstarter campaign for his Ultra Large detailed maps of Mars. It's never quite been done like this, and I hope that helps mainstream the importance of space exploration as we connect people to the solar system right in their living rooms. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/planetaryprinting/mars-ultra-large-maps Each print is centered on Oxia Palus, one of the 30 quadrangles of Mars referenced by the USGS Astrogeology Res
  10. To summon up briefly , any measurement greater than zero/nothing is history/memory . Time does not exist , only the zero instant exists simultaneous for a unified Universe. When you measure the value of a Caesium atom you are not measuring time, you are recording the atoms history. Time dilation does not happen, the now moment never changes from a zero value. Scenario 1 - take two identical video cameras, one camera (a) we will set up recording Caesium clock (a) which is in a inertial stationary reference frame, the second camera /b/ we will set up recording Caesium clock /b/ which
  11. Fate Not There. But there is a probability facts. The destination does not exist. The destination does not exist the way we know it. Fate would not be a force. Fate has no power to control the course of our lives, because the destination does not exist. There trajectory. And this trajectory is not controlled by fate, simply because it does not exist. The path is influenced by the facts of Probability. However, the facts of probability also not be a dominating force acting on our paths, but a set of influences trajectories. The facts of probability can not be called Destinations, as this wou
  12. The basic premise proceeds from the assumption that the probability of a world coming into existence exactly like our own is greater than zero (we know this because our world exists). If space is infinite, then cosmology tells us that our existence will recur an infinite number of times. We also know for a fact that we are made of atoms and particles. Giving infinite time and space, there will eventually be same atoms and particles IN SAME ORDER, therefore our existence is cyclical and not linear. Speaking of logic, the only reasonable answer would be that we indeed are living in an eternal
  13. It's still the Alpha version, but it will be automatically updated as new versions are available. I thought it would be of interest to some. Check out the new features and more:http://universesandbox.com/2/
  14. According to a discussion I read, 'The temperature in space is close to "absolute zero" because any object there will radiate heat until it cools to that point.' But how to measure the temperature of Space?
