Conspiracy theories about illuminati, mermaids, 9/11... It's all wish-wash and for the superstitious. I can't stand truthers!
Anyway, is this still about the universe or what? And why don't we stick to its amazing facts? It's expanding indefinitely and theories about big crunches or rips have been ruled out. As it expands, all the stars will eventually die out.
Scientists can also see as far back as when the universe was only a few thousand years old. We can see any further due to a plasmic wall of radiation which shows how different the cosmos looked back then. If we could pierce through this "wall" we would be able to see the Big Bang.
Today, the cosmic background radiation (Big Bsng's afterglow) can still be seen. In a few trillion years, however, this evidence will be gone and the universe will have expanded to the point where other galaxies will no longer be seen from the Milky Way standpoint. We are,in a sense, lucky to be living now and to have discovered so much about the universe.
We could also talk about two ellusive factors about the universe: dark matter and dark energy. Anyone care to comment?[ Post made via Android ]
