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 ...

Miles Per Second Speed Of Light
1,615 wordsOur universe is a vast abyss, always expanding without bound. Many objects in space are exciting and intriguing. Mysterious surround many findings and cosmologists, astrophysicists, and astronomers work to obtain a better understanding of these strange phenomena. One great mystery is that of the black hole, which since the early 1960? s has been the object of many scientists? work, but has been dated to be the topic of discussion since 1783, when a astronomer named John Michell first recorded hi...

Force Of Gravity Gravitational Pull
1,033 wordsThere are many theories predicting how the universe will end. These theories are based on one four basic principles. The first principle being that the universe continues in an endless cycle. The next is that the universe will stay at its current size. The third is the universe will continue to expand endlessly. The final principle, states that the universe will collapse on itself. The first theory is based on the fact that the universe is oscillating. The universe currently is expanding outward...

Black Hole Event Horizon
767 wordsString theory is one of the most exciting and profound developments in modern theoretical physics. Unfortunately it is a highly technical subject that can only be well understood using the tools of Quantum Field Theory. It also doesn't hurt to know some mathematics like Group Theory, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry. Needless to say this is prohibitive for most people who are far too busy doing other things. String theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size o...

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. ...

20 Th Century Neutron Stars
1,393 wordsThe 20 th century saw a great many new discoveries regarding celestial phenomena in the universe. One of these entities, which has only recently been encountered, is the Black Hole. These are formed when a star which has consumed all its fuel collapses in on itself, eventually turning into a black hole with infinite density and zero volume and an immensely powerful magnetic field. We are unable to see black holes even with the most powerful telescope, because their gravitational pull is so stron...

1,558 wordsBlack Holes Every day we look into the night sky, wondering and dreaming what lies beyond our galaxy. Within our galaxy alone, there are millions upon millions of stars. This may be why it interest us to learn about all that we cannot see. Humans have known the existence of stars since they have had eyes, and see them as white glowing specks in the sky. The mystery lies beyond the white glowing specks we see but, in the things we cannot see in the night sky such as black holes. Before I begin to...

Back In Time Second Law Of Thermodynamics
1,746 wordsThroughout the ages, outstanding physicists, to the movies, to some of the greatest science fiction novels of all time, have pondered the idea of time-travel. The thought of actually being able to travel to another time or universe has long since enthralled, enveloped, and overwhelmed some of the greatest minds in the history of physics. No one person can actually prove any of their theories, but a few actually make sense. Meaning that they do not violate the laws of physics. One of the main the...

However, science is much more than how human beings have brought their individual strengths and weaknesses to the continuing effort to learn more about the world. Stephen Hawking is one of the most renowned and most accepted scientists in the world nowadays. His life and works have been presented in various newspapers and magazine articles, TV documentaries, and even film...

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 ...

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...

Big Bang Theory Hydrogen Ions
3,468 wordsLuminosity is the amount of light that is radiated from a star. White light is the composition of all colors. In elements, the energy discharge can be displayed as light. Just by looking at the colors that are discharged, one may precisely identify the element. In understanding the universe, the Doppler effect is one of the most important tools. The Doppler effect is a shift in frequency due to a moving source. Skipping a rock on water would be an example of this effect. The circles would be off...

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...

3,151 wordsI. Introduction 1. Theory of Black Holes Black holes are one of the least understood phenomenons in the galaxy yet the secrets contained within the black hole could revolutionize the field of physics. Black holes are formed when an enormously massive star, most likely a neutron star, collapses in on itself. This happens because when the star dies all the energy generated from the sun s fusion reaction that was formerly pushing outward suddenly stops. When the outward force stops, the sun has so ...

Theory Of Relativity Black Hole
1,924 wordsWith all the excitement surrounding the new Star Wars movie, it is a big day for lovers of science fiction. But how much does the average person really understand about beaming up; phaser's and photons; wormholes and warp drive? How powerful are these fantasies compared to the real thing? If theories of their existence are true, black holes are the most powerful force in the known physical universe; however, do they even exist? Most scientists believe so, but by their very nature, black holes ar...

3,742 wordsBlack holes are objects so dense that not even light can escape their gravity, and since nothing can travel faster than light, nothing can escape from inside a black hole. Loosely speaking, a black hole is a region of space that has so much mass concentrated in it that there is no way for a nearby object to escape its gravitational pull. Since our best theory of gravity at the moment is Einsteins general theory of relativity, we have to delve into some results of this theory to understand black ...
