  1. I've been interested in the sciences for a few years (cosmology and astronomy specifically), however I have only started self tuition for a month or two. I know a little... But I am only 13 and need help on where to start! I am joining an astronomy club in september, and I am reading a few books. Also watching documentaries in my free time. How should I go about learning? And are there any useful websites/books etc. of which you know are good to start out in cosmology and other related sciences? Thank you

    I watched a lecture by Neil deGrasse Tyson which influenced my idea... I see where you are coming from, makes sense.
  3. After viewing a topic discussing the big bang, I started to wonder on how the event got this name... During the start of expansion, it couldn't of banged at all seeing as it was sorrounded in 'nothing' (i'm relating this point to the sound of a bang, nothing else). It wasn't at all big... The start of the universe must of been infinitely small. Ofcourse, this name is obvious today - the universe is the biggest 'thing' known, and using radio, can be heard as the bang is still going on. So yes, the name fits today, however, not at the start of what was the big bang.

    I heard in a documentary that they would because of the speed of their possible existence? But it was probably not what they meant, what you've said sounds more realistic. By the way, i'm not too sure on how to quote, so this reply may look odd.

    Nothing can exceed the speed of light (as we all know). However, recently I have been drawn towards the theory of tachyons. Supposedly, they should exist beyond the speed of light and never be able to slow to reach it. Moreover, the particles would travel backwards through time. I don't understand, at all, if we were to detect them... How so? Tachyons would only exist for an instance, therefore there mustn't be a way to follow and detect any one of these particles. I am not particularly smart and am young so I just can't justify that even if they are there... Would we ever prove them?
  6. Hi, i'm June and I just found this website I am 13 and have a large interest in cosmology - so i'm starting to study by myself at home. I know, i'm very young... However, shouldn't that be a good thing as I can start my studies now? I adore astronomy and cosmology documentaries and am working through a couple of books so I don't come across seeming to be stupid (as such). I enjoy playing cards and memorising a randomly shuffled pack as a challlenge and I go to gymnastics
