LIGHT-NING SPEED: HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE WE BREAK THE SPEED OF LIGHT

Light Trails on Highway at Night

“We will get there, but how long will it take?”


QUANTIFYING IT

The speed of light measures how fast light travels over a certain amount of miles, kilometers, even feet per second, hour, etc. For example, the time it takes for the light to come from the surface of the Sun reaching Earth is 8.3 minutes over a distance of 150,000,000 kilometers or over 93 million miles. So to travel that extreme distance in only 8 minutes is a quantum leap for humans to reach. Well, actually, it’s beyond a quantum leap. The Earth is roughly 25,000 miles around, and light travels at about 186,000 miles per second or just over 670,000,000 miles per hour. Meaning that if you were traveling the speed of light, you could travel around the Earth 7 times in one second.

IN REACH OR NOT IN REACH

We have some pretty interesting technology, and we have worked the math to travel at some astounding speeds. But reaching the light speed record is being able to harness energy that we cannot even begin to harness yet. But is that all the way factual? Because making leaps in science is not necessarily the idea that we don’t have the technology. We have not yet had an individual, or groups of people come together to make it happen. There are 7 billion people on Earth, we cannot say for certain who is capable or not. The below video was Published on Dec 12, 2011 by Video: Melanie Gonick/MIT on speed of light.

IMPORTANCE OF REACHING LIGHT SPEED

Now, you might want to know, what is the importance of reaching the speed of light. Well, there are Earth like planets hundreds of millions of miles from us, even billions. But being able to travel at the speed of light will put us in traveling distance. Meaning, we travel to the moon in 3 days and Mars can take just under a year. But at the speed of light, we would reach the moon in about one second, and a few minutes to Mars. Just think about those 300 days it takes to get to Mars, the traveling distance we could make in space. Put it this way, light travels 16,105,941,302 miles in one day. Now multiply that by 365 days in a year. We would far exceed our solar system into other universes that we once theorized about in the past. Now granted, humans would most like not make that mission because of the effects on the human body traveling that speed. But sending a probe is no bodily effects or dangers. So for now, that would be the goal; a probe in space.

WHERE ARE YOU TAKING US: WHERE IS THE SUN GOING AS WE ARE ORBITING IT

Painting of Red Planet

“Ever wonder where we’re going?”


ORBITING IN SPACE

As the Sun travels through space, the eight planets are pulled toward it. You have the twos solar systems: the inner solar system and the outer solar system. The inner consists of Mercury, Venus, and Earth; and the outer solar system comprises of Jupiter, Saturn,Neptune, and Uranus. Now as these planets are being pulled toward the Sun, the Sun is traveling the space at 45,000 mils per hour. Scientist has speculated that the Sun is moving through space toward Lamda Herculis, which is a constellation about 370 light years away. But with absolute certainty, where are we going as we shoot through the cosmos.

LITTLE DO WE KNOW

As we shoot through the solar system being pulled by gravitational forces toward the sun, we know nothing walking about our daily lives on Earth. Scientist can speculate all they want, but we don’t know for certain what will happen in space. For all we know, the Sun could be taking us toward something catastrophic that could lead to our demise. Now granted, scientist have technology where we can see a lot before it happens. But my issue is that there is nothing you can do to stop it. Just knowing is not good enough, if there is nothing you can do. On Earth we fight over politics and other social issues, but there is something lurking above us, that could be our demise. The video below I found on YouTube: MN MKTstyle Published on Nov 7, 2014.

TIME TO VENTURE OUT

We have been hearing for some time now, that maybe it’s time for humans to venture out and start looking for other planets to inhabit. Now, that is easier said than done, considering the closest planet that is Earth like can’t be reached by today’s technology. Physicist Stephen Hawking speculated that humans have really only the next 100 years before we really start running out of resources here on Earth. And that means we start to fall apart after that point. But that is only a theory because who knows what will happen over the next 100 years. Think back 100 years from where we are now. You look back at the year 1918, then now. View the photos below at what has changed over 100 years, and let’s see if 100 years from now will we leave Earth for Earth-like life.

INFINITE NOTHINGNESS: COULD THERE HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN A TIME WITHOUT ANYTHING

Image result for UNIVERSE

“Before our universe was nothing which is something.”


Before the beginning of our universe, there was supposed to be infinite nothing. But if you look into the definition of nothing, the definition of nothing is the absence of something. Yet as people, the only problem with our definition of nothing is anything that is not of tangible use. There are more elements of something that we can not see and feel, that exist than not. So, even with having nothing there is still something within that nothing. Like for example, carbon monoxide is odorless, colorless, and tasteless; which is extremely deadly because we are use to detecting problems as humans we can sense. So going back to the universe that our planet exist within. What really was before the existence of something? Was there something, but too small for us to detect? Or was the difference between absolutely nothing and something taking place so fast and so powerful that absolute nothing was a minuscule amount of time?

The first way to look at this is by means of example. Our universe is pitch black; so take out a blank sheet of black paper. This blank sheet of paper is the universe in which we dwell. And within this universe is everything that is in it including all of us. Now, let’s say before this universe, there was infinite nothing. So let’s break down the conversation a little more. The paper: meaning before our universe there was nothing. And that is both a true and false statement. Because without life in the universe there is nothing. But the statement of before our universe is nothing is false too because that sheet of paper that is our universe is something. So this is how a statement can be true and false, depending on the context of the statement. If you’re talking actual tangible life, then yes, there was infinite nothing; but infinite nothing including life would still mean the sheet of paper is something.

Now here is what’s interesting; since our universe is the sheet of paper, what was before the sheet of paper. Well, how is paper made; a paper maker. Someone must use something to make sheets of paper. So what was done to create our sheet of paper (universe). Because when we talk about our sheet, there had to have been a sporadic event that took place to create this sheet which includes our solar system, moons, galaxies, and stars. So to make sheets of paper, who have the materials (natural synthetic substances of cellulose), the machinery to press it together, and then drying them into flexible sheets. So as you see, there is a process in making paper. What were the natural synthetics, the machinery, and the drying stage? Now granted this is a very basic example, but it’s still a process of creating something. Which basically means, our universe is really something even before something.

And in the end, that’s the intrigue with our universe. That even before the time of something, there had to have been something. Because our human definition of nothing is the absence of something. But something had to be done to make our universe which constitutes the absence of something, from which something is created. So there never was a time that our universe was nothing because something had to have been done to make it into even nothing. WHAT A MIND BENDER!!!!

EXCEPTING YOUR END: HOW WE COPE WITH DEATH

Related image

“Are you really ready for the end?”


For the longest, people have tried to find methods of coping with the idea that we as people will eventually meet our demise. No one, no matter how long you live, is ready for the time when they will die. We all love existing and hate even thinking about a world where we don’t exist. So for thousands of years we have sought to try to understand something. Anything that will point us in a direction leading to our end. Religion has its viewpoint and science has its viewpoint. But even with both views, all of us walk away with the same feeling. We either fear dying and/for we don’t want to die.

Well why, why do we fear the end of our lives. None of the past frightens us, yet we are totally afraid of all the future. Me my self, I was not afraid of the year 1920 so why am I afraid of the year 2120. I won’t be around which creeps me out. But what will happen once we leave this Earth. Is there a collection of energy that goes somewhere, or do we past and that is it? Do we ascend to heaven as the bible speaks about, or do we disintegrate to nothingness? The idea of this being the end for so many people is scary. But how do we cope with the idea of an ending. Let’s look at a few ways people cope with themselves passing away.

The bible is written about us ending and going to heaven. Once we die in this world, we pass along into another. The Christian text calls it the land of milk and honey. In the Lord’s house there are many mansions. This sounds great if you’re a person of the Christian faith. Furthermore, if you belong to any other group, they have their own beliefs regarding the end of life. Yet there are the skeptics. These are the people who come into the loop and present to the world their alternative facts. To them they have a more scientific means of explaining the end of ones’ life.

The science community aims at looking at humans as a carbon based life form that will come to an end as well. Unlike the religious community, science theorizes that nothing supernatural happens as the body dies. Carbon is released from our bodies like any other dead organism back into the atmosphere just as with plants and animals. This is of benefit to us and any other plant and animal life on Earth. So, to them, this is it, so make the best of it. Because when the lights go out, they’re out for good. Anything other than that is seen as nonsense and should be viewed as such.

In the end, what will it take to get people to cope? Will there ever come a time when people can cope with their end? Or will we forever be locked in our emotions about what happens after we die on this Earth? There is one thing that people everywhere can agree upon. Is that this body we call ours will not be here forever. And I don’t mean just me in the moment. I mean the Earth as we know it has an expiration date. Eventually the universe will reach maximum growth before it ends itself. And that’s life, everything has a beginning and an end. How all of ours will turn out is unknown. So for now, we live. Go to sleep and wake up, until the day comes where those eyes won’t open again.

GONE AND FORGOTTEN: WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF ALL PEOPLE VANISHED FROM EARTH?

“What if we weren’t around?”


I sometimes think about what life would be like if people disappeared from Earth. My intrigue sparked when I first saw the television show on the Discovery Channel Life After People. It was a one hour show that would explain what happens if people were to vanish from Earth. The show talked about the animals would reclaim the land, and how long it would take for the building we built to collapse. Almost immediately, grass and trees would grow into the buildings and engulf vehicles. What’s the most interesting is how long would it take to cover up any reminisces of our existence? Will that time ever come where people won’t be here on Earth? What would an Earth without us look like?

As time progress, in a few billions years the sun is suspected to swallow up Earth. My question is, will there be people on Earth when this happens? If so, can you imagine the hell they’ll go through when this happens. But, if you know anything remotely about the science involved, people will be dead long before this happens. Well why, why would people be dead long before this happens? It’s from the fact that we only have a limited room for growth and only so many resources that contribute to our quality of life. And because the Earth is a living breathing organism in itself. So it can’t last forever, yet it’s traveling through the cosmos to God knows you where. But speaking of God, that sounds like an interesting theory. Could religion possibly be right, or maybe not?

Or, what if people die out here, but the evolution starts over once again. Maybe, because after the sun engulfs the Earth, other planets will eventually follow suit. Then the universe will reach a point where the universe can no longer expand, then we will have yet another big bang. The universe will sustain back to its original state and expand once again. Then there will be yet another ability for evolution to take hold. Could that possibly mean as human die off, we will reemerge. Or is it possible that the universe has expanded beyond capacity before and we are leftover from some previous universe?

In the end, a world without people is hard to comprehend to us, but not in the universe. We are very small in the grand scheme of things. Humans on Earth are like a grain of sand on a beach, and Earth in the universe is a grain of sand on an even bigger beach. So our existence or nonexistence is small, but my intrigue is open nonetheless.
