    Is the universe finite or infinite?

    I noted that you are a theorist on the previous page.:smile: I'd like you to answer my question found on the previous page (#73). "We should stand firm and insist that genuine science is based on observational testing of plausible hypotheses. There is nothing wrong with physically motivated...

    We're no longer biggest star system!

    Thanks Dave:smile: I recall reading back in 2010 about HD10180. "The HD 10180 system represents an interesting example of the various outcomes of planet formation. No massive gas giant was formed, but instead a large number of still relatively massive objects survived, and migrated to the...

    Could the Moon be the cooled remains of a planets core?

    Hi Jack.:smile: You have a great imagination.:biggrin: Never heard of the 'cracked egg type planet'. I do think the Earth and the Moon share a common thing: 1. From the American Association for the Advancement of Science - Science is a peer-reviewed journal:

    Newtonian mechanics & Oort Cloud Shell

    NASA gives us some history about the Oort Cloud that I thought would be helpful for our viewers. I love NASA as some of our experts here already know!:smile: And, it gives me an opportunity to share NASA with our viewers with hope they will explore it's wonderful website and enjoy it as much as...

    Where is the Sun's mother?

    The title of this topic is "Where is the Sun's mother?" Scientifically speaking, the Sun has no mother and there is no 'corpse of the star which gave birth to us'.:smile: Thank you.

    If we could see 13.7 Billion lyears away?

    I think it would be helpful to have a better understanding of the terminology used for "Big Bang" since the OP RCulling asked, "So would we not see the big bang?" Briefly, here are the observations that have been made.:biggrin:
