A little light reading on the train. I’m hoping to learn how to bend space and time so that this commute is faster. #brownline #cta #weekendreads #briangreene #fabricofthecosmos #spacetime #commuting
Without the processes of giant stars going supernova, no other element could ever form and exist in our Universe except for hydrogen.  Naturally there would be no life and no worlds for life to exist on.  #astrophysics #quantumphysics #quantummechanics #stringtheory #cosmology #astronomy #science #nerd #geek #bigbang #bigbangtheory #nikolatesla #stephenhawking #alberteinstein #carlsagan #isaacnewton #neildegrassetyson #elonmusk #michiokaku #briangreene #cosmos #theoryofrelativity #specialrelativity #blackholes #multiverse #godparticle #higgsfield #higgs
Water is an incredibly abundant element in our galaxy - probably in every galaxy.  There are untold numbers of comets and worlds rich in water.  Right in our very own Solar System alone we have our own planet and we have Jupiter's moon, Europa, completely covered in water ice two miles thick.  Venus probably had liquid oceans before the runaway greenhouse effect turned that planet into Hell, and there's evidence that Mars once had water on its surface, too, prior to solar winds stripping away the atmosphere when the molten core solidified, eliminating the magnetosphere, and causing the water to evaporate into space with some locking up at the polar caps and settling deep into the ground as permafrost.  Earth has liquid water on the surface because of our proximity to our Sun.  Astronomers call this region the Goldilocks Zone - not too hot, not too cold, but just right.  I'm pretty sure that based on the sheer number of stars and planets in our galaxy, there are probably hundreds if not thousands of planets and moons in the Goldilocks Zones of their host stars.  #astrophysics #quantumphysics #quantummechanics #stringtheory #cosmology #astronomy #science #nerd #geek #bigbang #bigbangtheory #nikolatesla #stephenhawking #alberteinstein #carlsagan #isaacnewton #neildegrassetyson #elonmusk #michiokaku #briangreene #cosmos #theoryofrelativity #specialrelativity #blackholes #multiverse #godparticle #higgsfield #higgs

This is a fact.  They would see T-Rex and every other creature that stalked this Earth during the Cretaceous Period.  They would not see humans. Our prehistoric ancestors wouldn't evolve for another 57 million years.  Why? Because from their vantage point, light from our planet would take 65 millions years to reach theirs, so by the time that happens, they would observe how our planet was during that period in our geological past.  Its this way for us when stare out into the Cosmos.  The farther away from Earth an object is, the farther back in time we see.  Those very distant galaxies have stars that perished eons ago, but their light is just arriving to us now.  #astrophysics #quantumphysics #quantummechanics #stringtheory #cosmology #astronomy #science #nerd #geek #bigbang #bigbangtheory #nikolatesla #stephenhawking #alberteinstein #carlsagan #isaacnewton #neildegrassetyson #elonmusk #michiokaku #briangreene #cosmos #theoryofrelativity #specialrelativity #blackholes #multiverse #godparticle #higgsfield #higgs

Watched the PBS (@pbs) documentary “The Fabric of the Cosmos” (2011) created by physics professor Brian Greene (Columbia University, @columbia). In four episodes on space, time, quantum physics and the multiverse, he attacks all the big issues physicists have struggled with since the Einstein revolution. The Higgs particle has now been found but other than that, the questions are still the same. Excellent stuff but rather dense. Not saying that to turn you off, but you have to watch this several times to understand it all. Quantum physics is so weird I can’t get my head around it... (Greene has made another program, “The Elegant Universe”(2003), where he pushes string theory as unified theory - see a previous post.) #briangreene #science #physics #alberteinstein #relativity #universe #space #cosmos #cosmology #bigbang #bigbangtheory #gravity #columbiauniversity #pbs #documentary #dvd #dvdcover #dvdcollector #dvdcollection @pbs @columbia
