  1. Really cool how they have finally captured an image of a black hole https://www.google.ca/amp/s/dailygalaxy.com/2020/03/the-black-hole-larger-than-our-solar-system-unveils-history-of-the-entire-universe-weekend-feature/amp/
  2. It was an article that popped up on facebook
  3. This was the edited version of the original particle I read https://www.google.ca/amp/s/www.express.co.uk/news/science/1249990/Asteroid-warning-NASA-tracks-4KM-killer-asteroid-hit-Earth-end-civilisation-asteroid-news/amp
  4. So this is real then? sorry fat fingered was I was typing. what I meant was so this is real then in your mind airbrush?
  5. I am trying to find the articles, I saw them a few weeks ago while I was suspended. i guess I am looking more for information on this specific asteroid, and how trajectory is calculated and how much can we trust those numbers
  6. Hi all some questions for the asteroid on April 30. According to NASA it will be 16 times further than the earth to the moon. 1- How can they know this for sure? 2- How do we know they are being honest with the distances? 3- are they the Only ones able to make these calculations? 4- Several news sites had articles that it would hit and this was secret info from NASA? 5- another site claimed that the Coronavirus was brought up to keep people isolated because of this asteroid to avoid mass panic, so how do we know what’s real vs fiction on this? These things make it hard to determine what is right dosent it? thank you
  7. Can you see it with a good digital camera, which area would you look in
  8. I do know that at one point Betelgeuse was dimmer than Bellatrix and now it seems to be brighter than it. i guess no supernova just yet
  9. I assume the brightness phase is also about 420 days?
  10. I am sure I can figure it out now that I know where to look thank you
  11. I think I saw that somewhere
  12. Is there any way on a router to set a specific device to have primary bandwidth on wifi?
  13. That would be awesome to see that, last election I actually thought Hillary would take it. Does anyone feel that the whole impeachment puts a damper on trumps possibility to take a second term?
  14. I totally understand that but when push comes to shove will she have enough to be trump for presidentcy
  15. Yes but with the women in the mix, I am all for a women president but is the USA ready for that. Trump still seems to have a good stronghold
  16. Sorry I may not have asked my question properly when it normally goes through it’s 420 day dimming phase then goes back to its brightening phase does it actually ever go back to its original brightness? ah I think I saw what you meant sorry. It usually goes back to original now question it seems to have dimmed a lot more than it normal would in it previous cycle but I did read this was over 25 years. But I believe I also read that this is not the dimmest in the past 100 years is that true
  17. That’s pretty cool, so dead galaxies and live galaxies can be situated is the same area of space how is that possible?
  18. So my post was closed before I can respond to your comment Good question, do you mean if Betelgeuse's next peak in brightness will be as bright as previously recorded peaks? I do not yet have an opinion: I made a plot from Betelgeuse brightness data from 1997. From that we see that the maximum brightness in each cycle does not deviate very much. So given the lifespan of stars and the rather consistent behaviour in the data I've available I have no reason to predict that anything special is happening in the next cycle. But note that the last minimum deviates a little and that we at this time we are near the minimum brightness, It has just recently been suggested that the brightness is increasing again. Hence I will not try to predict the next maximum brightness from recent data yet. Data and plot thanks to https://www.aavso.org/ From what I see in the graph and the twitter link you provided , it kind of looks like it is brightening again. question I have is since it goes through these phases of dimming and brightening during the brightening phases does it go back to its initial state prior to dimming or is the brighteness lower than previous?
  19. So basically voids seem to hold galaxies that also still create stars then?
  20. Yes but it says they found different constants in different parts of the universe When my colleagues and I looked at the spectra of gas clouds in the early universe and compare with the same elements measured in laboratories on Earth, we saw very slight but significant differences,” said Webb. “We only know of four forces in nature: electromagnetism, gravity, and the strong and weak forces acting within atomic nuclei themselves. And at least one of them, in other regions of the universe, now appears to be different from that on Earth. By combining the data from the two telescopes that look in opposite directions, the researchers found that, 10 billion years ago, alpha seems to have been larger by about one part in 100,000 in the southern direction and smaller by one part in 100,000 in the northern direction. The data for this “dipole” model of alpha has a statistical significance of about 4.1 sigma, meaning that that there is only a one in 15,000 chance that it is a random event.
  21. Just cam across this article that the fine structure constant is different and is changing all over the universe https://www.google.ca/amp/s/dailygalaxy.com/2020/02/a-quirk-in-the-cosmos-alpha-factor-has-profound-implications-for-physics-and-life-weekend-feature/amp/ they talk about different alphas depending where you look
  22. I meant are they still forming stars not that it really matters anymore
  23. So are the 60 galaxies alive or dead galaxies?

    Yes right finding out we only have a few months to go is a lot of fun.
