Center Of The Universe Force Of Gravity
1,271 wordsThe human conceptualization of the solar system dates back to the beginning of time. The early Egyptians worshipped the sun as a source of life and then the area called space was becoming a curiosity to humans. Throughout history, our knowledge of the solar system has increased and there is still much to learn. Through the research and studies of Brahmagupta, Ptolemy, Kepler, Brahe, Copernicus, Galileo, Newton, and Einstein. With this knowledge, laws and equations for physical science have been ...

Speed Of Light Time Of Day
1,333 wordsOur view of the sky at night is possible because of the emission and reflection of light. 'Light' is the better-known term for the electromagnetic spectrum, which includes waves in the visible, ultra-violet, infra-red, microwave, radio, X-ray and gamma-ray regions. The scale of the spectrum is so large that no region is distinct, several overlap each other. Each of these regions in the electromagnetic spectrum represent transverse waves, travelling as electrical and magnetic fields which interac...

Back In Time Speed Of Light
829 wordsOften when I look at the stars when I'm in bed at night I shudder to think of my insignificance in the immensity of the Universe. The distances in the Universe are inconceivably huge, so we measure them in light-minutes or light years. A light minute is the distance light travels in one minute, and that's a long way, because light travels through space at 300, 000 km a second. So in a minute it would travel 18, 000, 000 km. The distance of the Sun from the earth is about eight light-minutes whic...

It is based on fact (in what has been proven through the scientific method) and in what has been hypothesized, building on knowledge and the influence of other evolutionists. However, it still remains a belief: a belief that using the scientific method is the correct way to explain our origins. Increasingly, even scientists are questioning whether the scientific method is capable of answering many of the most profound qu...
