  1. Gravity affects atoms the same way it affects all other matter. Every atom creates its own gravitational field which attracts all other matter in the universe. Steve Gagnon, Science Education Specialist Im still reading and pondering your reply but here's Point 1: So is it true that the particles that make up this planet, you and me attract the particles which make up objects on the other side of our universe?

  2. Richard Dawkins is especially scathing of astrology, along with most scientists. But I wonder what scientists here think of this idea from the Hitch-Hikers Guide To The Galaxy about the Total Perspective Vortex; "The idea is that, if every atom of the universe is affected by every other atom of the universe, it is in theory possible to extrapolate the whole of creation—every Galaxy, every sun, every planet, their orbits, their composition, and their economic and social history from, say, one small piece of fairy cake." So if every atom of matter attracts every other particle of matter in the universe, it follows that there's a relationship between the attributes and behaviour of celestial bodies (the fairy cake) and the matter here on Earth. And as the planets' existence and our lives have been "going to happen" since the Big Bang, viz all events in the universe have a single common ancestor, is it possible that astrologers have identified readable patterns of behaviour in the heavens which relate via the Big Bang with events on Earth? Eg put very simply, after a lecture hall has emptied, a scientist could I assume measure temperature and other attributes and estimate the number of students who had been present. Thus there's a relationship between the temperature of the lecture theatre, and the behaviour of students. Can astrology be the observation of similar patterns? Thanks GIAN x
  3. Thanks. I don't really understand it all but I agree with you x
  4. There's absolutely nothing wrong with manual skills, it's what this country was built on including science. Ive done site labouring and you can't get bricklayers and plasterers. Alot of my schoolmates could sit in front of a screen pressing buttons all day, but were scared shitless of honest grime.
  5. Sounds terrifying lol 🥶🤪🥴 But thanks for the info and link 🙂GIAN
  6. BTW I don't think Im naturally talented at maths, (highest; grade C at GCSE.) Do you think I'd need to be 1st class BA (hons.) material at mathematics to have a hope of being a professional astrophysicist working eg for nasa? Cheerz GIAN 🙂
  7. Thanks Mr Beece, that's interesting. I'll have to go and look up quantum/ planck theory, and also Planck volume. but well done for getting me motivated. BTW I'm not naturally talented at maths, (highest; grade C at GCSE.) Do you think I'd need to be 1st class BA (hons.) material at mathematics to have a hope of being a professional astrophysicist working eg for nasa? Cheerz GIAN 🙂
  8. At what point in the future before the heat death of the universe (which I believe will be in 10¹⁰⁰ years' time) will it become impossible for any sort of biological life anywhere in the universe to continue? Will it be when all the stars have burnt out or what? Cheerz GIAN 🙂
  9. Well because I was given the impression that the singularity does not and cannot have any dimensions; the singularity is 0x0x0mm. Yes it's not instantaneous, but I thought that because of the gravity involved, it wouldn't take that long to reach 0x0x0mm. But given these forces, I guess it never quite gets there. I read somewhere that eventually black holes will evaporate away, although I've no idea how
  10. I found loads of Red Squirrels on the Isle of Wight in the summer, but due to the invasion of Grey Squirrels very few are left on the mainland of Great Britain. Is it theoretocally possible to develop a pharmaceutical contraceptive substance specific to one particular species like the Grey Squirrel, but which would not affect Reds or any other species? We need our Reds back! Cheerz GIAN😊
  11. To everyone who's replied THANKS ❤🙂🙂
  12. Thanks 🙂 Does her composition give psyche a magnetic field? Thanks 🙂
  13. Do we know many metals are in the outer solar system? eg the gas giants, Pluto, their moons and the Kuiper belt? Or can someone point to some easily intelligible layman's literature. I'm thinking that if human beings were living there, they'd need to mine metals to make their own stuff. Cheerz GIAN 🙂
  14. Theoretical physicists always proclaim portentously that the singularity at the centre of a black hole "is where our laws of nature break down" which sounds to me like another way of saying "we don't know the answer." But as no physical process is ever absolutely instantaneous (I think,) surely the collapsing matter gets smaller and smaller while slowed down by ever increasing density so it never quite gets to the singularity and the process continues to infinity. Eg if you keep dividing 1 by 2 you'll never get to zero. Cheerz GIAN🙂 (I've no science qualifications beyond gcse maths n physics grade C, so pls be gentle with me.)
