Would say a cepheid variable star in a galaxy moving at 150,000 mps away from us appear to blink slower and how would this slow blinking, if so, be related to the redshift at which it was detected?
Thanks you for your reply, I meant within by which a neutrino can pass through mass without likleyhood of collision so a neutrino in an eccentric orbit could pass through the sun on part of its orbit perhaps.
I hear that the moon is steadily moving away from the earth. Is it due to the suns gravity? Will it eventually go out of earth orbit and circle the sun on its own? Would there be any chance of a posssible collision with earth if this happened or would it leave earth orbit at its closest...
Does a black hole bend the space that photons travel in so that they are bent towards it? How would gravity attract a photon if they have no actual regular mass? Also, are neutrinos attracted to black holes and sucked in (theoretically?)
There is a short story by Gardner Dozois called I believe "A Kingdom by the Sea" It talks a great deal about a slaughter houses and used to be posted on the scifi.com website. It was published in 1972 I believe. Its worth a read.
"There is a big difference between ordinary novas (all are binary stars with a white dwarf companion) and supernovas. Antares does have a distant (green!) companion, but it is a red super giant itself, and will likely become a "Type II supernova" eventually. "

I'm not sure there is only pleasure or pain, one or the other. Maybe there is a middle state of mild nothingness. Pain is useful in that it keeps us away from body destroying danger. Pleasure is useful because it is like a reward for people who are sad. But mild nothingness can be a state in...
This is an oft quoted statement that doesn't by any means always work. Just ask someone who has been struck by lightning and lived with years of disabling pain. It might be a nice platitude for a warrior, and it might be true some of the time. Maybe say what doesn't kill me makes me bitter. ;)
Pot has a culure associated with it as well. In my part of the world, people who smoke often smoke socially and peer pressure can be great to smoke it when every person you know says hey come on its the good stuff when you go over to their house. This can mak it hard to stop. I assume this...
Well. I'm not much educated about some of these things, it seems people are always saying stuff like " the terrible cold of 'space'" or something. Not only that, but when one gets far away from the sun, so I assumed for any star or starlike source, it gets colder: like Pluto and Charon.
At the above link, it appears there is a high temperature cloud of gas has been colliding with the solar system. What could keep a cloud of gas at such a high temperature in the interstellar medium?
Also, it seems that perhaps many "natural" i. e. non-patentable cures, simply can't afford the funding for clinical trials as little profit can be made from them to recoup costs and provide growth for investors.
