So anybody have any theories as to what is beyond the cosmic horizon, maybe more of the same?
What happens on this puny little planet is pretty insignificant when you truly consider the size of area in which this blue/green ball of rock floats,
absolutely mind boggling.
Additionally, do you still think we're alone here?
It's indeed mind-blowing to think about such vast dimensions
, thanks for posting the video!
Though I don't have any serious qualifications in this field of science
, I still tend to believe we're living in a universe that's just one
tiny part of a bigger multiverse
. Reason: in the past, we always found out that every newly
discovered part of our cosmos was just a small part of something bigger. Be it the Earth itself, the solar system, the milky way, local groups of
galaxies, superclusters etc.
Perhaps we're just unable to measure
the existence of a potential multiverse with our limited technical means. We're not even able to measure
everything in our own universe as of yet, even though spacecraft like COBE
did some considerable work in determining the nature of the cosmic microwave background, which is
linked to the birth of our universe and the processes that took place shortly after the big bang
The PLANCK probe
will probably provide more information on that, and perhaps allow for
more detailed conclusions on what exactly makes our universe expand at about 70 km per
According to Wikipedia:
Planck is expected to yield definitive data on a number of astronomical issues, due for release in the first quarter of 2013
Apart from that, I don't think we're alone in this universe, but I still keep thinking about the
and why we're having a difficult time finding evidence for other species. On the
other hand, it's probably just a matter of time ...
P.S.: S+F for an article that makes me think about the unthinkable
