In time, as the sun expands, with the aid of a celestial alignment. Mercury could be booted from it's orbit, and sent on a collision course with Earth. Sorry, as if there isn't enough to worry about already.

The Universe appears to be expanding faster than the speed of light but nothing else is capable of reaching lights speed.

Scientists have recently conducted experiments that they think could be another force to be added to the four Fundamental Forces. They hope that this new force may account for the elusive, long sought for dark matter.

The first dog in space was a dog by the name Laika. It was on board Sputnik 2 and this happened on November 3, 1957.
And Laika died since the Soviets provided no means of surviving reentry - heartless communists. It's rumored that Boris --- was actually the first cosmonaut in space, but he was greatly harmed in his return trip to Earth, and that he died in the hospital. The Soviets completely controlled their media (Tass) and this tragedy is still kept completely secret. Yuri A. Gagarin was immediately sent up with no press until he returned safely.

NASA never intentionally killed any animals and took great care not to risk the lives of humans. This is why the Soviets beat them with the first animal in space and with the first human by three weeks.

The BIG Bang-Bit Bang was a supermassive white hole – inflation expansion of energy/ matter & information 13.8 billion years ago - spawned by a supermassive black hole at the heart of a galaxy in our parent universe. This duality combines general relativity’s singularities of infinite density in a ‘Cosmic Egg’ birth of this & all universes within The Conglomerate: multiverse without random bubble universes & parallel worlds. Our Universe exists inside the Planck density of that SBH & shares the same boundary/event horizon. That SBH-SWH phase transition was a quantum tunneling umbilical Einstein-Rosen wormhole with energy/matter & info transformed/transferred, though scrambled & encoded. This Universe is 1-in-2 trillion+ offspring each with similar inherited physical constants. This ‘simple’ cause-and-effect cycle/circle of life – birth-life-death-transformation-rebirth - explains both infinite space and eternity. Reproduction is the simplest plan of continued existence for everything from cells to universes.

"It take the light of the Sun 8 mins and 20 secs to reach Earth. "

So when told not to look directly at the sun, that bright yellow source of light in the sky appears in a place that has actually moved one solar diameter away from where you are 'looking' at. But do not look near or at it !!

Почему время движется вперед? Ученые обычно связывают это с энтропией. Согласно энтропии, мир движется от порядка к хаосу. Хотя законы физики говорят, что все обратимо, этого не происходит. Однако может ли время зависеть от энтропии? Если бы мир вернулся к порядку из хаоса, мы бы удивились, но время бы шло. Ведь это будут процессы будущего. Более того, для законов механики не имеет значения, движется ли время вперед или назад. Отсюда следует, что разбитое стекло можно объединить из кусочков стекла в единое целое.

Это явление не происходит из-за постоянного увеличения энтропии во вселенной. Если вы вернетесь назад, то Большой Взрыв будет иметь нулевую энтропию. Однако в сингулярности законы физики не работают. Температура, время, плотность становятся бесконечными, и это также означает энтропию.

Тем не менее, если энтропия управляет временем, это означает, что она сильнее в сильных гравитационных полях. Кроме того, если в космосе солнечные системы образуются из облаков газа и пыли, этого не происходит в тех местах, где существуют сильные гравитационные поля. Мы также знаем, что если свет распространяется вверх в гравитационном поле Земли, он теряет энергию, что означает, что гравитация увеличивает энтропию.

Энтропия была низкой в молодой вселенной. Во-первых, гравитация влияет на энтропию и увеличивает ее. Во-вторых, гравитация притягивает газ; следовательно, газ становится плотным и коллапсирует в звезду. В-третьих, газ в виде набора масс увеличивает энтропию, чем остается однородным.

Но гравитация замедляет время, а не ускоряет его. Оказывается, чем сильнее энтропия, тем медленнее время. В таком случае энтропия не может быть движущей силой времени.

I remember back when Apollo captured the imaginations of America. Please don't let the spirit of private enterprise overwhelm the sheer wonder of exploration and discovery. We don't belong out there unless we can duly appreciate it.

Don’t forget about Earth,it may be a nice comfortable place to live at the moment but it has been here for a very long time and will be here after our race poisons it to the point we can no longer live here.By looking at all the artifacts scattered around our world tells us that we are not the first intelligent species to inhabit this world,weather they were destroyed by natural disasters or by there own accord,who knows?Or perhaps they became so technologically advanced and just left.The signs of mass destruction are found in all areas of this planet,we need to be an interplanetary species if we are to survive because eventually weather we want to or not we will have to leave our home or become extinct like those who come before us.

There's a interesting point--- that cosmos is said to be originated from a singularity is because we have not found a newer and better theory to fix it out---the origion of universe.

In theory, dark energy takes up roughly 68% of our known universe. Dark matter is at 27% and normal matter takes up less than 5%.

Bruce McCandless II was a U.S. naval officer and aviator, electrical engineer, and NASA astronaut. In 1984, during the first of his two Space Shuttle missions, he made the first untethered free flight by using the Manned Maneuvering Unit.

I had the pleasure to work with him in the early 1980's to learn to make "dead stick landings" for the Shuttle reentry landings. Training him in a Cessna 150 and 172 at the LaPorte Texas airport, we would climb out over Galveston Bay, throttle back the engine and start the glide maneuvers to try and reach the airport. Many trips around the pea patch, it all came together. He was a fine pilot and a great student and he always stuck the landing with the Shuttle.....I think about him often.

Mars may be mush smaller than earth, but it has a similar land mass since it’s unlike earth with is 70% covered in water. But the two planets vary in gravitational force with Mars having 37% the gravity of Earth.

The planet Jupiter is the fifth planet out from the Sun, and is two and a half times more massive than all the other planets in the solar system combined. It is made primarily of gases and is therefore known as a “gas giant”.

the universe was created in 7 days everything we know today the stars and everything but space itself the black stuff was created 10-34 of a second after the big bang and expanded faster then the speed of light.

The hottest place in the universe is a gas cloud surrounding a cluster of galaxies that appears in the Virgo constellation, where temperatures reach 300,000,000 K. Nobody is sure how it got that hot.
