Universe, Space & Beyond

15K buzzes
Ready for a cosmic experience? The purpose of this hive is to share and discuss science news about the Universe, space and beyond. What's "beyond"? Good question. "Beyond" is what theoretically might be found inside and outside the quantifiable Universe mapped out by scientists and world space agencies, like NASA and ESA. Some space science theories include Parallel Universes, Time Travel, Worm Holes, String Theory, the Multiverse, Dark Matter and Dark Energy,Teleporting, ETs/UFOs, etc. And let's not forget about all the mathematics and physics that go along with it. Thank you for joining this hive and encouraging other space enthusiasts, scientists, amateur astronomers and other bees to do the same. Let's share our collective knowledge, theories and views about all things space-related. Time for liftoff, better buckle up! -- David B. Grinberg, founder/manager.

The future is NEAR!

    Hubble Uses Gravitational Lens to Capture Disk Galaxy - By combining the power of a "natural lens" in space with the capability of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers made a surprising discovery—the first example of a compact yet massive, fast-spinning, disk-shaped galaxy that stopped making stars only a few billion years after the big bang.

    Simply amazing pic, George. Moreover, with NASA's planned launch of the James Web Space Telescope to supersede Hubble we can expect even more vibrant and vivid images to come. Now we just have to master harnessing the sun's energy with a 'Dyson's Sphere" to colonize the solar system. The we need to leverage nano technology and new space science to ride a beam of light to other galaxies at near light speed. No problem, there, right?

    Likely true, Francisco, but let me present a positive note: scientists say that an asteroid extinction event occurs roughly once every 200 million years. Thus, compared to the average human life span I think the odds are it won't happen for a while. And, hopefully, by then new tech and space science will unite to proactively prevent such a cataclysm. You know I'm an eternal optimist, right? Heck, we might even colonize Mars before then, at least according to Elon Musk.

    Great share @David B. Grinberg. While it's fulfilling the passion part of my Trekkie identity, I want to support the work we can do to not have to leave Earth as a result of destructive motives. The same great minds that can propel us outward can also improve the quality of life on this planet. I hope the future generations have an option and, as Earthlings, can say, "Mars is a great place to visit, but I don't necessarily want to live there."
