    Milky Way galaxy with beauty. Many solar systems revolve around the galaxy. The Milky Way is the galaxy we live in. Even though many people only know the Milky Way as the galaxy we live in, there is actually a lot more to it than you may think. 1. Our galaxy is so big, we haven't even gotten out of it. Do you realize how big the Milky Way really is? In school we learned the sun is gigantic, but it's tiny compared to the galaxy. This sun is 432,288 miles across and the galaxy is supposedly

  • Galaxies Lab Report

    636 Words  | 3 Pages

    Intro Galaxies have a variety of shapes that ranges from ellipsoids to spiral galaxies. Spiral galaxies are made up of many individual stars. Moreover, the components of the spiral galaxies move relative to each other. For instance, a rotation curve of a rigid body measures the speed and the radius. However, a rotation curve of a rigid body must have a body where the angular speed is the same. As a result, this lab will help me understand how individual stars move in a galaxy spiral. This lab will

    Harold Evans, a former editor of The Sunday Times, noted that: “Attempting to get at truth means rejecting stereotypes and cliches.” Douglas Adams, the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, might disagree with this sentiment: stereotyped characters are integral to The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and they help underscore the novel’s social commentary. Specifically, the novel’s protagonist is a conventional, blue-collar British man named Arthur Dent. He exhibits the common characteristics

  • The Fermi Paradox

    1176 Words  | 5 Pages

    The Fermi Paradox The Fermi Paradox, inaccurately attributed to physicist Enrico Fermi, suggests that if intelligent extraterrestrial life exists, there would be evidence of their visits to Earth, or presence in the galaxy and/or universe, but since there is no clear evidence, intelligent extraterrestrial life either does not exist, or some other explanation is required to explain the lack of evidence. The name of this concept improperly originates from the physicist, Enrico Fermi, who asked, “Where

    One anthropological concept that has influenced one of the character’s behavior in a specific scene in Guardians of the Galaxy is power. Power does take many forms, but in this scene the Orb and infinity stone hold all the power. A specific scene where Power has influenced one of the character’s behavior is one of the very last scenes in the movie, where Ronan holds all the power and is planning on destroying the universe. Since Ronan has possession of the infinity stone, the universe’s fate rests

    The Milky Way There are galaxies like between 300 billion and 500 billion in the space. One of them is the Milky Way. The first time Democritus explored the Milky Way in 450 - 370 B.C. Democritus thought that the Milky Way is composed the hundreds of stars. Then Aristo researched the Milky Way. Aristo's ideas about the Milky Way were token shape with combustion of stars. Then Ibn-i Heysem, Ibn Bacce, Ibn Kayyim El Cevziyye explored the Milky Way. The first time Galileo Galile explored with a telescope

  • Big Bang Theory Origin

    1231 Words  | 5 Pages

    Although the big bang theory is widely accepted there are still major criticisms to the theory which may include surface brightness as a constant , they contradict the redshift evidence stating that surface brightness of galaxies up to redshifts of 6 are constant , which basically means that they support a non-expanding universe and in sharp contradiction with the big bang theory and evidence state that more distant objects appear to the bigger hence also contradicts the

    is a theory that has become widely accepted because of its proficiency in simply explaining the three major cosmological observations. Those three observations are: the expansion of the universe as measured by the redshift of light released from galaxies, the presence of the cosmic background radiation and, the comparative amounts of hydrogen, helium, and deuterium in the universe. The vast majority of astronomers believe that the Universe started with the Big Bang around 14 billion years ago. Before

    came from one singularity, cosmic inflation, into quarks which then form into protons, neutrons, and electrons, that will soon form into atoms which will then form into any element, and then to stars and galaxies. What is interesting is how any size going from humungous to somewhat small of the galaxy and stars can be formed by how much protogalactic clouds are there in that region. On the other side of me, I have a feeling that all this is pointless because it is just a theory not just a fact like

  • Edwin Hubble Telescope

    The telescope is named after Edwin Hubble, who discovered that there are more galaxies in the universe other than the Milky Way. He also discovered that galaxies are moving away from us and that the farther away they are, the faster they are moving. Edwin Powell Hubble was born in Missouri in 1889. He moved to Chicago 9 years later. He graduated from high school in 1906 with a scholarship to the University of Chicago and graduated from the University with a degree in Mathematics and Astronomy in

  • Essay On Hollow Earth Theory

    1524 Words  | 7 Pages

    The hollow earth theory or ‘hohlwelttheorie’ as it is called in German, is the idea that the Earth is not a solid mass but rather an entirely hollow sphere that within contains a substantial interior space. The idea goes back to ancient mythology, folklore, and legends of a subterranean land inside the Earth, from which places of origin and afterlife were thought to be located, such as the Christian hell described by Dante, the Greek underworld, the Hindu ‘Patala’, the Celtic ‘Cruachan’ just to name

  • Interstellar Star

    1544 Words  | 7 Pages

    The interstellar cloud is the birthing place of the low mass and high-mass stars, however there are quite a few differences between the two types of stars. As mentioned earlier, low-mass stars come from the interstellar cloud, and they are created when the cloud begins to collapse, which can happen for a number of reasons, with some being a possible collision with a nearby cloud or an explosion of a nearby star. Once the cloud begins to collapse and shrink under its own influence its temperature

    turn a wormhole into a time machine because it would take a strenuous effort and it is tough enough to pull it off. With the help of Einstein’s theory of general relativity they predicted that wormholes exist but none has ever been discovered. Just like the other theories, the Wormhole Theory also has problems , first problem of this theory is the size, prehistoric wormholes, according to scientists are said to be in microscopic size. However, as the universe expands, some of the wormholes might

    slightly thinner than others. The less dense areas were gapped and more spacious, while the dense parts of the sea of gas were being clumped together by gravity. These clumped areas would soon for stars and galaxies. All distant galaxies are slightly red in color, and the redness of the galaxies can reveal how the universe was born. 13.5 billion-years ago the universe was mostly made of hydrogen gas. Hydrogen is the most simplest of gases, but is a tremendous source of power. When hydrogen is heated

    Read Teed (1839-1908) who apart of what he already believed, also though that the interior world was populated and illuminated by its own sun, and he declared that we all are living in the sphere, and that celestial bodies such as suns, planets, and galaxies occupied Earth’s interior. This was explained by the Egyptian mathematician Mostafa A. Abdelkader in 1980’ when he wrote papers explaining the Concave Hollow Earth model proposed by Teed, which basically explains that we live on the inside surface

    the sun and the planets revolving around it. This sun is a star in the neighborhood galaxy and, when we look further, we see other galaxies, each comprised of billions of stars, many of which have their own array of planets. We also see black holes. These black holes that so capture our imagination can be seen as openings of wormholes that lead to the Creator. The Creator stands at the origin point of all the galaxies, all the universes. It is interesting indeed that the edge of a black hole is called
