Rotation of the whole universe around the common center of mass.

Recommended Posts

 


Rotation of the whole universe around the common center of mass.
It is possible to detect when observing galactic accumulations. Such clusters, which are more shaped in the shape of a plutonium, move in orbit around the center of mass. Those that are irregular; fall in the center or additionally have one more motion vector parallel to the axis of rotation.
For falling, you can determine the diameter of this "megascope".

It is assumed the Universe does not rotate in the currently accepted model. No indication of rotation has been found in a detailed analysis of the CMB.

Careful, mixed with alcohol it will make you see aliens...

Can't say I've ever heard/read that the universe rotates. I can't see how it would be possible anyway because the universe is expanding outward in every direction. I think you mean Galaxy, and the rotation of them (objects within the galaxy do rotate around it).

Our solar system rotates around within our galaxy. I think it takes about 100, 000 yrs to do a single rotation.

There are solution of the GR equations which involve a rotating expanding Universe but they are not supprted by observation.

Some of these things are hard to get your mind round. For example our current best model has the Universe as spatially infinite (and always has been) but undergoing metrical expansion

I guess it's not impossible for the universe to be rotating and expanding at the same time. I'm thinking of a snow ball. You roll it ("it's rotating) and at the same time it's gathering up more snow which makes it get bigger (it's expanding). As you say though, without any observational proof or the likes. 

Wouldn't everything in the universe be rotating at the same rate/speed. Therefor everything would look as if nothing is happening. You would need something outside of the universe to focus on to detect any rotation. 

Finding something outside of the universe to focus on doesn't even make sense when I say it. Much less even being possible.

Rotation requires an axis to rotate about. We could detect evidence for his in the CMB but none is found and the Universe looks isotropic with a very low probability it is not isotropic.

I guess a ball rolls rather than rotates.

As far as I'm aware there's no evidence that the universe as a whole is rotating.

I guess that if we could answer the question; where did the Big Bang happen? Then the centre/axis part of the OP’s question would have an answer.

I think that the answer is “everywhere”. So the answer to the OP’s question is “No”

??????

Any experts in the house?

Yes but then the center of the ball is a special point. Remember our view of the Universe is intrinsic i.e. from the inside by definition it has no outside (it is everything) and so we can't have an extrinsic view.

That is correct in my understanding and is the standard view.

An interesting question which has been pondered by cosmologist for many years. This Physics Stack Exchange question for example, although quite old covers most of the ground

https://physics.stackexchange.com/questions/1048/what-if-the-universe-is-rotating-as-a-whole

In summary

It is possible to envisage an infinite, homogeneous, expanding, rotating universe. It would not be isotropic though and any observer could detect an axis of rotation, though the axis would be different for each observer. No anisotropy has been detected to date however (eg in the CMB) so the rotation must be small if present at all.

This 2016 paper https://arxiv.org/abs/1605.07178 concludes "Including all degrees of freedom simultaneously for the first time, anisotropic expansion of the Universe is strongly disfavoured, with odds of 121,000:1 against."

Challenging for the universe to rotate around its centre point as it almost certainly hasn't got one.

It takes the Sun 250 million years to orbit the galaxy once... it's 100,000 light years in diameter...

few beers?? Take me a few vodkas, but I know what you mean... the trick is to keep that spinny feeling and not to go over board... aka, maintain the happy phase....

Thanks for the correction. I knew there was 100,000 in there somewhere.

      The galaxy group Hickson 44 in Leo. This is based on 29 x 240 s, plus bias and flats.

      Hickson 44 in Leo:

      There are some other galaxies near by, some of which are names in this overlay from Astrometry.net:

      Overlay from Astrometry, naming the other objects:

      The main ones are NGC 3190, NGC 3185, NGC 3187 and NGC 3193. NGC 3190 has a well defined dust lane. NGC 3187 is a barred spiral galaxy with two arms. NGC 3193 is an elliptical galaxy.
      The light captured by my camera last night left these galaxies just after the extinction event killed the dinosaurs on Earth.
      From APOD: Galaxies, like stars, frequently form groups. A group of galaxies is a system containing more than two galaxies but less than the tens or hundreds typically found in a cluster of galaxies. A most notable example is the Local Group of Galaxies, which houses over 30 galaxies including our Milky Way, Andromeda, and the Magellanic Clouds. Pictured above is nearby compact group Hickson 44. This group is located about 60 million light-years away toward the constellation of Leo. Also known as the NGC 3190 Group, Hickson 44 contains several bright spiral galaxies and one bright elliptical galaxy on the upper right. The bright source on the upper left is a foreground star. Many galaxies in Hickson 44 and other compact groups are either slowly merging or gravitationally pulling each other apart.
       
       
      Abell 1367
      This image is based on 19 x 300 s , plus flats and bias. It shows a LOT of galaxies, in a grouping called Abell 1367. In this image you are looking at part of one of the biggest structures in the Universe, the Great Wall.

      Wikipedia:
      The Leo Cluster (Abell 1367) is a galaxy cluster about 330 million light-years distant (z = 0.022) in the constellation Leo, with at least 70 major galaxies. The galaxy known as NGC 3842 is the brightest member of this cluster. Along with the Coma Cluster, it is one of the two major clusters comprising the Coma Supercluster, which in turn is part of the CfA2 Great Wall, which is hundreds of millions light years long and is one of the largest known structures in the universe.
      The overlay from Astrometry gives some of the galaxies visible in the image.

      The August galaxy of the month (the 100th one actually) from the Webb Society is NGC 7042 in Pegasus.
      https://www.webbdeepsky.com/galaxies/2019/
      So I thought, better get that new 20 inch dob out and try it. The sky was a bit milky and there was a lot of high cloud around but that was not going to stop me!
      Well I found NGC 7042 fairly easily. You can tell its a spiral as it has that characteristic low surface brightness glow across its entire face. It sits next to a triangle of stars. I then worked hard to see if I could see NGC 7043. I could not see it last time I tried when I had a 14 inch scope. Well this time I got it just! Very faint even with averted vision but definitely there. I managed to see stars to mag 14.9 despite the poor skies.
      Here is my observation:

      I also had a look at a few more galaxies on my target list, IC 1473 in Pegasus (within a triangle of stars) and IC1550 in Andromeda. That brings my total galaxies observed up to 1800.
      Here is IC1550 from Aladin. Perhaps not galaxy of the month but it was special to me as no 1800 and it looks lovely next to that field star. I read that it is about 275 million light years away behind the Perseus-Pisces supercluster wall of galaxies.

      Another great night of observing with the new 20 inch scope. 
      Do give any of the above targets a go as they are well placed to the east at the moment (which is best for me over the Cotswolds!) and let me know how you get on.
      Thank you to Owen for the inspiration.

      Hi guys, I'm new here. 
      So i have heard from this source: 
      http://www.thescinewsreporter.com/2019/06/in-august-andromeda-galaxy-will-move.html?m=1
      that the galaxy andromeda will be visible to the naked eye and look bigger than the moon. They said that it will happen in August, but didn't specify a day. 
      Does anyone know anything about this? Or about how i kann see it? 
      Thanks in advance and sorry if my grammar is bad

      Is the Universe rotating?
      Since we cannot see it's center or objects beyond it how can we say it is not itself rotating as most everything in it that we know of is?
      So really four questions, is it? and how we might know? And what other means are there to make measure it is not or is if indeed we can determin it is not or is and how those conclusions might be made?
      I know this question has been asked before so in this post I ask more than just the basic question...
