  • Einstein's Theory of Relativity for Dummies

    Everything you need to know and be confused by.

    "He who joyfully marches to music rank and file, has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, since for him the spinal cord would surely suffice." Albert Einstein

    Do they have a more basic version.

                Didn't watch the video but for those that don't know, the gravitational pull of an object bends space and time, and a minute on a satellite in space travelling at 10,000kph+ is faster than a minute on earth because it is further away from the earth therefor the gravitational pull is weaker.

                Black holes have such incredible mass that the gravity of it pulls in everything in reach past the event horizon and not even light can escape, the gravity is so strong that it doesn't just bend space and time but it turns it inside out, tearing the fabric of space and time (because they are one) and creating a black hole, where the debris goes is through the black hole plug aka singularity, crushing a planet down smaller than a basket ball, a golf ball, even an atom and is where time stops and is inevitably the death of everything in the universe.

                  So, in theory, black holes will eventually condense everything and then the big bang will start over.

                    Possibly, in billions if not trillions of years to come.
                    Quantity of black holes will increase with the frequency of exploding stars, speeding up that inevitable process.

                      ^thats what people call the big crunch, its considered a possibility.

                      is not known for sure, its one of the things that the search to understand the nature of dark matter and unification of big and small physics seeks to answer.

                      the universe is expanding and the rate of expansion is accelerating, if one was to extrapolate from the existing state of the art then it would keep expanding ever faster.

                        There possibly is no dark matter.

                        Dark matter never sat well with me to be honest, I suspect the cosmological constant doesn't actually exist.

                            A lot of things to do with the universe are just theories, not proven fact and are forever changing because there are things out there that seem to defy the laws of physics as we know them, such as black holes and possible time travel.
