  1. I have a theory that, whilst it may not satisfy your question, and may give you a few more questions as well as theoretical answers. I am also in highschool and I'm terrible at physics so don't take anything I say to heart and always with a pinch of salt. My first theory is about the expansion of the universe. I personally think that the universe is like a plastic bag, it has a certain amount of weight it can hold before it gives out and splits, however, since the universe is much larger than a plastic bag and infinitely stronger, it can hold a lot more weight. But, it's not just about the weight, it is about the size as well, and I think that the universe is ever expanding because of its need to hold all of the matter inside it and be able to take in new matter. And since it is always getting "heavier" in a theoretical sense, it is always expanding faster. This is why when the stars die and implode on themselves, the universe will expand faster, and will always have space for more emptiness. This leads on to the next part of my theory, the black/dark matter. My theory is that dark matter is taken into our universe at the edge of it's reaches by the expansion, and it never decays because it hasn't been destroyed yet, which I will explain later on. I believe that once the universe expands to a certain point, put simply it will collapse into a mass merger of atoms and particles, with black/dark matter being right at the center, forced to merge and split apart into different atoms, creating new elements and new chemical reactions resulting in a new big bang born out of what we perceive to be nothingness, which in actual fact, could be classed as everything. Meaning that our universe may have been recycled many times before. This also means that there is no end to life, only a, in a scale of universal time, brief pause, before new life is created. Thank you for taking the time to read this. Yours sincerely, Thespaceotaku
  2. I was thinking about this a few moments ago in reference to the hologram theory, and I just wonder if anyone thought this idea is actually feasible: presume the universe is a continuous hologram/program, set up and coded to form in a grid format. That grid would be what we call the "Fabric" of space. A black hole is a tear in that space (a temporary error in the scripting for that area of space.), caused by the over abundance of information (gravity) applied to the fabric. The script (being a continuously active script) later has to rewrite itself to fix the error (hawking radiation), causing the black hole to evaporate. If there happens to be more information applied to the area of the error (such as a star or gas), the error increases due to the excessive amount of information being applied to the script as it is attempting to rewrite itself to fix said error, thus increasing the size and mass of the black hole. The idea that there was too much information applied to the script and an error formed would imply that the universe is not perfect but is programmed to and capable of fixing itself (Or the creator is fixing it). It could also imply that the universe is actually infinite as well as there being similar versions of the universe (parallels). I was wondering if you think this idea could be possible... obviously I think too much... I'm just a regular guy that loves this stuff and reads articles.
  3. An image created by the NASA visualisation studio of what a lunar eclipse would look like from the surface of the moon! Pretty cool right? If you want to get a better understanding of what is happening and why, you can checkout this article HERE which goes into the theory behind it all and also shows you what a solar eclipse would look like from the surface of the moon.
