Universe, Space & Beyond

8K 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!

    NASA Juno mission to Jupiter will continue its current 55-day orbit for the remainder of the mission. During each orbit, Juno soars low over Jupiter’s cloud tops – as close as about 2,600 miles, peering beneath the obscuring cloud cover and studying Jupiter’s auroras to learn more about the planet's origins, structure, atmosphere and magnetosphere.

    Space is bursting with activity and this field of bright celestial bodies offers a glimpse at entire galaxies. Some of these galaxies contain millions or even billions of stars, but are so distant that all of their starry residents are contained within just a small pinprick of light that appears to be the same size as a single star!

    #23 I just got shivers when I read "you and your father actually never separated," because my sister in law and I were just talking about this the other day and she used the same phrase you did! Good shivers, not the creepy type lol. I agree Flavio and this gives me more to question/ponder!

    18/02/2017 #23 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    I read somewhere that what we perceive as time (past, present and future) are layers that is happening at the same moment. Our mind splits them , because belief (on time) and because our memory "erases/turn off" when we go to sleep and come back on when we wake up, so we think "one day passed", if that is so (everything is happening a big now) and indeed there is not past, present or future, you and your father actually never separated or will separate. Think of time on a vertical column term not a horizontally flat line. @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher

    18/02/2017 #22 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    #21 I'm glad to know someone else views the world/universe on a much broader level too. I just felt a sense of calm after reading, "but you are really never separated or constrain by time/location." Maybe that's why some of us do sense when a loved one that left our physical plane is near. Ha, I laughed when I read your comment about being a fortune teller. A lot of police forces use psychics and have had luck in finding the person at times. Many use them and never advertise that they do.

    nice experience Lisa, yes, vividly dreams are great isn't it? I had a few myself (totally conscious "dreams" for lack of a better definition) The parallel realities are a sure thing. Your dad is one and you are temporary in another but never really separated or constrain by time / location (how can it be if everything is energy) , now people reading this , will think I do "fortune telling" or tarot for a living :) @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher #20

    18/02/2017 #20 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    #18 I've often pondered the idea of the third eye too @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝. Have you ever had a dream and woke feeling as though it wasn't a dream but you were in another reality? Ok, people are going to think I'm weird when they read this but I've had a few that I know were not dreams. My dad and I met on a sidewalk in front of my townhome when I was 19. He died 9 years before this. We were standing about 6 ft apart from each other and it was a beautiful sunny day. The colors were vibrant, like nothing I had seen on earth. He spoke without his mouth opening and vice versa. I understood him and he understood me. As I tried to reach him to hug him, he told me it wasn't my time yet and I 'woke up.' I've only remembered 2 dreams vividly and they were with people who've left. I do believe in a 3D universe and that energy we aren't in touch with is a sense that is possibly developed higher once we leave our physical bodies. Although, I've always been really intuitive. What you said makes total sense to me.
    Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    18/02/2017 #19 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    regarding the color question (I forgot to talk about it) I think the primary colors are much more than we can see today (because our eyes functions are limited) , so again, because we see or do not see a particular color , it does not mean that is the correct or not the correct, it is just limitation. #17
    Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    18/02/2017 #18 Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝
    @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher good questions there, I do believe like you that senses would be more highly developed if we were without them, I also think that a sense is not physically limited to one specific organ , for example, I do think without eyes (as example) we can still see (that is why there is something called "a third eye") , so if we believe , that eyes (for example) are the only organ responsible for vision , then they will be. It is all about our believes (thought limitations) and that lock us down to discover other paths, Let's take a look in a theory that says that we are basically pure energy beings living in a 3D world (that is also energy (atoms and etc..), it does not really matter eyes (because it is all energy) , so when we think like that the definition of each organ does not make sense anymore as all is just energy, my five cents. #17
    Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    18/02/2017 #17 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher
    I'm glad this popped back up on the radar @Flavio 🇯🇵 Souza 🐝, I like how you think, I mean question! My theory, never become a blind follower and always question what's around you, your own motives, others motives (no one is pure) there are good people, not so nice people and evil people. I often question whether there are parallel universes in which we are living a different life, it doesn't mean that's so but my mind goes there. I forgot to touch on the subject of language that you brought up, I think that along with other senses would be more highly developed if we were without them. For example, people who were blind from birth (think Stevie Wonder), were able to tap into their higher senses and share their gift with the world. Here's a silly question I've often pondered: Because someone told me "this is blue," am I seeing the same color they are just because we can all (unless blind or color blind) point out colors when asked? So many questions without answers. Never stop second guessing oneself, it can lead to revelations and sometimes more questions ;-)
