    I Transparency of a gas compared to a plasma

    This is one of the interests I took in the question. In the strange event that a distance and empty field outside of a galaxy would be full of raw proton and electrons, but not be near a star or high energy system, the star light from the neighboring galaxy would be low energy photons, correct...

    I Transparency of a gas compared to a plasma

    I imagine an empty region of space, in between stars, or even galaxies. This void is filled only with a uniform distribution of hydrogen particles. I won't specify how dense this field is, but I would like to know which is more transparent to photons, a gas of hydrogen atoms, hydrogen...

    Stargazing Will the James Webb telescope see past the big bang?

    Do we believe it will see the very earliest objects? I wonder if it will see an epoch of darkness in the background. Perhaps a more powerful telescope is needed. Admittedly, I've become very excited to see this technology in it's orbit out in space. Thank you.

    Stargazing Will the James Webb telescope see past the big bang?

    Right. I figured that was the case. I am curious though... Will the James Webb Telescope be able to see up to this point clearly? Or do we need a yet, even more powerful, telescope. Thanks!

    Stargazing Will the James Webb telescope see past the big bang?

    Will the James Webb telescope be able to see beyond the Big Bang in principal? I realize, in reality this is not possible, but I'm curious if it will see as far back as possible, or if the telescope has limits, and eventually we will need a better telescope to truly look deep. Thanks!

    Stargazing How deep can Hubble Telescope see?

    Ah, I see. Thanks for the great explanation... This is very exciting, it seems the Webb telescope should render some really amazing stuff! Thanks again. -J

    Stargazing How deep can Hubble Telescope see?

    Hi, and thanks for the quick reply and link...!! Do you know if the Hubble ST could resolve older galaxies IF the universe were old enough to support them? If the Universe was 16 billion years old, could Hubble resolve 15 billion year old galaxies? I guess I'm trying to asses how powerful HST...

    Stargazing How deep can Hubble Telescope see?

    How deep can Hubble Telescope see?? -I understand that the Hubble telescope can only resolve galaxies at about 13 billion years old, using gravitational lensing. I am curious, is this because the telescope does not have the power to see farther? Or is this because there are no farther...

    What happens when an anitmatter blackhole collides with a matter blackhole?

    Interesting. So basically, it's the energy(or mass) that matters and that's all. Any Anti-matter anihilations would be hidden (if not out-right irrelevant). Thanks all.

    What happens when an anitmatter blackhole collides with a matter blackhole?

    What happens if two blackholes of identical mass collide, but one is anti-matter and the other is regular matter? Would all of the matter anihilate in a gigantic explosion of photons which could be detected by a far away observer? Or, would all of the radiation energy, which would still have...
