• Just saw a round like object of light pass by very quickly tonight and in just two seconds it disappeared like nothing wtf could it be?

    Best answer: Sounds like a meteor. They happen all the time and can be seen any night, but you get more at a time of a known meteor shower - and when you wrote this, the Geminids were at their peak. 14 December is generally when you get most.

    Best answer: Sounds like a meteor. They happen all the time and can be seen any night, but you get more at a time of a known meteor shower - and when you wrote this, the Geminids were at their peak. 14 December is generally when you get most.

    It's a dusty solar system out there and on any really dark night, you'll probably see at least one meteor if you wait long enough. It's just a tiny bit of rock, probably smaller than a pebble, it could even be a bit of dust, but because it's going very fast, it gets very hot as it hits our atmosphere and burns up. And that makes a streak of light across the sky.

    Meteor showers are generally when the Earth crosses the path of a comet. Comets leave a trail of dust behind them - bits fall off all the time to create the dust tail - and when the Earth passes through it, bingo, meteor shower. The Geminids are one of the very few exceptions - the comet-like asteroid Phaethon is responsible. And the Geminids move fairly slowly compared with other meteors, which normally flash by so fast they're gone almost before you notice. Whoosh, and by the time you've turned your head to look at what you noticed out of the corner of your eye, it's gone.

    So this is really sounding like a Geminid meteor and what you saw was a bit of the comet/asteroid Phaethon that had fallen off it on its way round the Sun.

  • How to time travel?

    Best answer: The only physically possible way of being able to travel AHEAD of time, since we technically already are traveling through time by merely existing, is to travel faster than the speed of light. If you can find a way to travel faster than the speed of light, you can travel ahead into the future, probably be ahead of... show more
    Best answer: The only physically possible way of being able to travel AHEAD of time, since we technically already are traveling through time by merely existing, is to travel faster than the speed of light. If you can find a way to travel faster than the speed of light, you can travel ahead into the future, probably be ahead of us by hundreds of years. Time can only stay constant under the speed of light. Why do you think time cannot exist in a black hole? It is simply because the black hole’s gravitational pull is so strong that anything that gets torn into it will travel faster than the speed of light. Even light can’t escape a black hole. So... essentially, if you want to travel ahead in time, make a teleportation device that teleports people faster than the speed of light. (However, I don’t know if the human body can handle traveling at those speeds... doesn’t sound very safe)
    I’ll give you a fair warning though... there’s no way to travel back to the past, so before you do it, think twice.

  • Is there any proof that aliens exist?

    Best answer: The Universe is so overwhelmingly vast that I cannot imagine how there could not be more life out there somewhere.

    Best answer: The Universe is so overwhelmingly vast that I cannot imagine how there could not be more life out there somewhere. Now regarding contact, that will depend on how advanced a dominate species is on their planet and how they communicate with each other. Think about animals and how they are born with instincts, they just know what they are and what is dangerous etc. Almost as if they are born with some innate knowledge. Now what if there is a dominant species on a planet that is like us but is born already knowing how to communicate and how to survive and with the knowledge of their parents imbedded in their psyche? How would they communicate with us? We would be so different. They might not even use sound to communicate. But there is one universal language and that is mathematics, Mathematics would be the best way to communicate with aliens because "mathematics is the expression and quantification of basic logical concepts, and then it builds on those logical concepts to form increasingly complex concepts." "Mathematics is the most fundamental type of logic possible (in physics anyway), and therefore it is easy to reason that mathematics is the best way of expressing the universe."
    If there were proof of aliens I don't think for one minute we the public would be told about it. I cringe to think that we bring rocks back from other planets back to Earth. Even a tiny unseen alien bacteria, virus or rogue protein could kill everything on Earth simply by learning how to manipulate DNA. The Earth is protected by a very fiery magnetosphere but we bring these rocks back protected in capsules that aren't penetrated and so these rocks slip into our atmosphere. I hope those who travel in outer space are very careful. We don't want to meet the bad aliens, the small particles that don't communicate with us consciously but via our protein or DNA.

  • Why when I look to see what mainstream science says about electric universe, they bash it, then I find articles about how they’ve found?

    ...things like an electric connection between Saturn and one of its moons via a plasma and another that says dark energy may not exist at all? These are things the Euniverse has already been saying.

  • When is the next galactic eclipse?

    Best answer: There are quite a few galactic eclipses happening right now. Galaxies move slowly so the eclipses last millions of years.

    Inside the ring at the top is another (much smaller) galaxy which is being eclipsed by the larger one. You better hurry because the eclipse will be all over in a few million years.

  • What If Space Doesn't Go On Forever - What If You Just Go Further In The Past?

    When I laid my head on the pillow last night I started thinking about Space. Something I love is the question of why we go further in the past the more through space we go.

    When I laid my head on the pillow last night I started thinking about Space. Something I love is the question of why we go further in the past the more through space we go. I started thinking what if the question isn't how far does the Universe go - rather what if it just takes you more and more in the past like a movie rewinding itself to the creation of the Big Bang. Where is there to go once you reach the fifth of a millisecond before the Big Bang? We don't know what happened then. How did that all start?

  • Is something due to happen on the 23rd of december this year? I've seen two different answers mention this date on those blackhole questions?

    Best answer: 23rd Dec 2018 ??
    As far as I know that is going to be a busy day for stores on account of Christmas shopping.
    Nothing is happening black hole wise. - At least nothing within this solar system.

    Hi guys, my engineers team want to put our tiny private satellite into space. this satellite use android OS and 4G for communication, 12MP Camera, have solar panel and 3.3V li-ion rechargeable battery. it weight just about less than half kilogram. We planning to put it into space using drone until there's no air, then use tiny rocket made by fireworks stuff to passing through atmosphere and set it autonomously using some sensors to put it on low earth orbit. do you think is this reliable ideas? or do you have other cheapest method? thanks in advance.

This could damage electric systems, items like radio, TV, radar, GPS satellites, other communications. Last big one about 25 years ago shut down a bit of Canada. We hope we are... show more

  • Why do some people believe that the Earth is flat?

    That is so completely wrong and unscientific. If Earth was flat than all of the oceans would slither up the mountains.
