Hubble Space Telescope Amount Of Energy
1,880 wordsAn image of the core of the Whirlpool galaxy M 51 taken by the Wide Field Planetary Camera onboard the Hubble Space Telescope. It shows an immense ring of dust and gas which is thought to surround and hide a giant black hole, 1 million times the mass of the Sun, in the center of the galaxy. The ring forms an accretion disc of gas, about 100 light years across, falling toward the black hole. The two brighter areas perpendicular to the widest dark lane are two jets of particles accelerated by the ...

Special Theory Of Relativity Quantum Mechanics
1,104 wordsPart I: The Edge of Knowledge Chapter 1: Tied Up with Strings This is the introductory section, where the author, Brian Greene, examines the fundamentals of what is currently proven to be true by experimentation in the realm of modern physics. Green goes on to talk more about "The Basic Idea" of string theory. He describes how physicists are aspiring to reach the Theory of Everything, or T. O. E. Some suspect when string theory is completely understood that it might turn out to become the T. O. ...

Creation Of The Universe Space And Time
1,165 wordsDr. Stephen Hawking has been considered to be more brilliant then Einstein. Dr. Hawking was born on January 8 1942 in Oxford, England on the 300 th anniversary of Galileo's death. Is this a coincidence? After his studies at St. Albans School, he attended University College, Oxford. He wanted to study Mathematics, but because it was unavailable at Oxford, he concentrated on Physics and earned a degree in Natural Science three years later. Stephen went on to Cambridge to do research in Cosmology. ...

Big Bang Theory Miles Per Second
2,170 wordsBig Bang Cosmology Introduction to Big Bang Theory Einstein came up with The Big Bang Theory with the intention of creating a model of the universe in which both his General Theory of relativity worked and the rest of the universe still worked. He based his theory on a fairly uniform distribution of mass throughout the universe. His Big Bang Theory was able to fix the peculiar way that Mercury Orbited the Sun and it was able to fix the way the Sun bent light. These were the first problems that i...

History Of Time Space And Time
1,650 words... Royal Society, Britains most prestigious scientific body, founded in 1660. Having just turned thirty-two years old, he was one of the youngest scientists to receive this honor (Hewitt). If black holes were slowly turning their mass into radiation, might a black hole eventually evaporate into space? Hawking published a paper entitled Black Hole Explosions? . The paper looked at this possibility. Hawking believed that the ordinary kind of black hole, made from a massive star, pulled in matter ...

Professor Of Mathematics Lucasian Professor
630 wordsSteven William Hawking was born on January 8, 1942, in Oxford, England. He was always interested in science and how things worked. From about the age of 20, he was awarded a first class honors degree in Natural Sciences. After receiving his degree, Steven went to Cambridge, to do research on Cosmology. After receiving his Ph. D. , he left the Institute of Astronomy and since then he has held the post of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics. In the late 1960 s, Steven proved that if general relativi...

Miles Per Second Speed Of Light
1,594 wordsWhen astronomers gaze out to the heavens these days, they see planets, stars and other celestial bodies. They understand how they move in relation to one another and the space they are in. This is due to the works of Albert Einstein nearly a century ago. Before then they were limited to understanding the universe based on the predictions, observations and calculations of mainly Isaac Newton. They were the backbone of classical physics, defining the world using the simplest of calculations. Newto...

Dr. Hawking is a theoretical physicist. In his own words, A theoretical physicist? [tries] to construct mathematical models which represent the universe. Sadly, though, his triumphs are often overshadowed by his illness. Dr. Hawking suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and generally his successes are vi...

Big Bang Theory 20 Th Century
3,306 wordsAlbert Einsteins theory Relativity Relativity Albert Einsteins theory of relativity has caused major revolutions in physics and astronomy during the 20 th century. It introduced to science the concept of relativity the notion that there is no absolute motion in the universe, only relative motion thus superseding the 200 -year-old theory of mechanics of Isaac Newton. Einstein showed that we reside not in the flat, Euclidean space and uniform, absolute time of everyday experience, but in another e...
