Hubble Deep Field: The Most Imp. Image Ever Taken (Redux)

This is the latest incarnation of the HDF video. The narration has been edited to include research from a paper in Physical Review Letters (2004) which puts the size of the universe at 46.5 billion light years, not 78 billion as I originally stated. In the video narration, I round that value up to 47 billion light years.

"A body continues to maintain its state of rest or of uniform motion unless acted upon by an external unbalanced force.. aint it so ...praise the Laws, let me hear ya say praise the laws..can I get a we know ..we know... yes we do join me now and fill your lungs with a mix of gases from our atmosphere for our hymn today ..Morons are hoping, Morons are hoping, God is the answer to all the questions and mysteries too astronmers study and then know the answers you can all join us and know them too Theer really is no god , at least not a person you are not special hes not watching you join us if you want to know the answers join us and be an astronomer too Mine is the starlight, mine is the knowing Born of the one light, Universe made Praise with elation, astronomers who have studied universe and become sage Yes morons are hoping , and hope is desperate and will not feed you nor save you from ignorance nor form in your brain the knowing of anything . But morons ar ehappy ,,happy happy happyy ...and ignorance for many peole is bliss and even if it isnt , some mumbo jumbo vodoo nutta will come along and tell them ..You could be happy , you and you r petty , cosmically insignificant life, could be filled with happines and you personally could experiance a deep fullfullment in a spiritual way that only I and my voodoo bretheren can tell you all about .. just mumble the mumbo after me and you selfish personal happiness needs will be taken care of by god , who even tho he created universe and is currently manifesting his will over infinite time and all things , is personnalluy interested din your salvation, and your happness yes he is ,cos its all about you ..you wonderfully special person you let me hear you say vodooo..voodoo...its voodoo , taking you away from the road , stealling you from the path of study and making you a navel gazing twat, more concerned with ya own smugg self satifaction than doing or knowing anything usefull ..

He pioneered exobiology and promoted the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence (SETI). He is world-famous for writing popular science books and for co-writing and presenting the award-winning 1980 television series "Cosmos: A Personal Voyage", which has been seen by more than 600 million people in over 60 countries, making it the most widely watched PBS program in history. A book to accompany the program was also published. He also wrote the novel "Contact", the basis for the 1997 Robert Zemecki's film of the same name starring Jodie Foster. During his lifetime, Sagan published more than 600 scientific papers and popular articles and was author, co-author, or editor of more than 20 books. In his works, he frequently advocated skeptical inquiry, secular humanism, and the scientific method. • http://www.carlsagan.com Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) was a German mathematician, astronomer and astrologer, and key figure in the 17th century scientific revolution. He is best known for his eponymous laws of planetary motion, codified by later astronomers based on his works "Astronomia nova", "Harmonices Mundi", and "Epitome of Copernican Astrononomy". They also provided one of the foundations for Isaac Newton's theory of universal gravitation. During his career, Kepler was a mathematics teacher at a seminary school in Graz, Austria, an assistant to astronomer Tycho Brahe, the court mathematician to Emperor Rudolf II, a mathematics teacher in Linz, Austria, and an adviser to General Wallenstein. He also did fundamental work in the field of optics, invented an improved version of the refracting telescope (the Keplerian Telescope), and helped to legitimize the telescopic discoveries of his contemporary Galileo Galilei. Kepler lived in an era when there was no clear distinction between astronomy and astrology, but there was a strong division between astronomy (a branch of mathematics within the liberal arts) and physics (a branch of natural philosophy). • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannes_Kepler .

Creation Astronomy Propaganda Debunked 04

Once again, thanks for your patience guys and girls! New videos should be out more frequently from now on. In this video, we look at some outright lies and general creationist assbaggery about Venus, straight from the mouth of the good preacher, Spike Psarris. Dr. James Kasting's website, with plenty of great research to read, can be found here: http://www.geosc.psu.edu/~kasting/PersonalPage/Kasting.htm Specifically, the paper of direct interest can be downloaded here: http://www.geosc.psu.edu/~kasting/PersonalPage/Pdf/Icarus_88.pdf If you don't mind following a little atmospheric science, it's a highly recommended read. *About Venus' collision: Of course, we cannot directly observe events in the Solar System which happened millions of millenia ago. Current theory is a product of indirect evidence (such as the retrograde motion or high axial tilt - depending on how you look at it) combined with models for planet formation. It's harder to reconcile Venus with biblical creation though, because your conclusion will be in the region of the creator deliberately attempting to confuse its creation, and stifle their academic progress; hardly a loving act. Studying the atmospheric composition of Venus further will shed some light on its ancient history. I would suggest the greatest puzzles with Venus are its highly circular orbit (also a property of fellow freak planet, Uranus) and the fact that it has no moons (which are thought to be products of catastrophic collisions). The planet may well have formed as the result of two large objects actually 'sticking' together. I myself, and the scientific community have no intention of hiding these questions from the public. But I ask that you remember that a gap in our knowledge about something, particularly with no direct evidence, in no way validates jumping to wild conclusions. Future generations will be laughing at people like Spike even harder than we are now. If you're interested in seeing some great videos about inconsistencies with the bible, please check out the series entitled 'An Honest Search for the Truth' by holysinecure: http://www.youtube.com/holysinecure They were kind enough to give me a shout out recently and I'd like to return the favour (but recorded this video before I saw theirs - d'oh!)

Thunderbolts of the Gods

In science one of the best markers for the accuracy of a model or theory is how well it predicts outcomes. This applies not only to future events but can also be applied to existing data. Below is a collection of predictions based on Electric Universe principles, which have been confirmed by observations and data. The link above provides a list of pending predictions.

Stephen Hawking: Master of the Universe (Part 1 of 10)

In his post as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, he counts Sir Isaac Newton (1642--1727) amongst his predecessors. And he was born 300 years to the day after the avant-garde astronomer, Galileo Galilei (1564--1642). Following a devastating diagnosis of motor neurone disease in 1963, Hawking was given two years to live. Yet 44 years later, he still hopes to solve the big problem of physics, that of unifying quantum mechanics and Einstein's theory of relativity. Doing so will produce a set of laws that will explain everything in the universe, including how it all began - a breakthrough aptly dubbed the 'Theory of Everything'. Hawking felt that he was on the brink of this breakthrough a long time ago. When he published his surprising best-seller 'A Brief History of Time' in 1988, he expressed a certainty that the Theory of Everything was imminent. However, twenty years later, it still eludes Hawking and the scientific community. Frustratingly, Hawking's condition is worsening. His only way of communicating now is through one cheek muscle. Will he find the theory before it is too late? This two-episode documentary from the UK's Channel 4 is both a portrait of Hawking and an attempt to explain his work to non-scientific types. It conveys the basics of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity in an easy-to-understand manner and does very well to acquaint viewers with Hawking's extraordinary life and character. A thoroughly enjoyable, inspiring and enlightening series!

Birth of the Tycho Brahe's 1572 supernova remnant

Animation showing the evolution of the supernova remnant over time until today's view. Artist's illustration of how a supernova remnant is born. The animation starts with the progenitor of Tycho Brahe's supernova of the year 1572. Following a titanic thermonuclear blast, which has blown apart a white dwarf star, material is ejected into interstellar space at an incredibly high velocity of up to 30,000 kilometres per second or one tenth of the speed of light! Over the last 4 centuries the debris have expanded to a diameter of more than 20 light years. Million degree hot gas as well as heated dust particles are seen in an composite image of the remnant today, which has been obtained with the Chandra and Spitzer Space Telescopes and the Calar Alto observatory. This real image concludes the animation. Credit and copyright: Max-Planck-Institut für Astronomie (Ors Hunor Detre, Oliver Krause) http://www.mpia.de/IRSPACE/Tycho_release

It's MTSU's naked eye observatory. Some people have called it "Stones River Henge." It's a giant sundial, a calendar, an astronomical observatory, and more. Astronomer Eric Klumpe, who conceived of this beautiful and unique learning laboratory, paid homage to the ancient Greek astronomers by calling it the Uranidrome. URANI from the Greek word for sky and DROMOS meaning a large specially prepare place.

This is part 1 of a 5 part episode. To watch the full show go to my channel (Zuke696) then go to my Playlist, find the show then click Play All - Hubble's Heritage - In 1929, astronomer Edwin Hubble made one of the greatest discoveries in the history of science -- the expansion of the universe. To honor this king of cosmology, an orbiting observatory named the Hubble Space Telescope was launched in 1990 after years of research and delay. Hubble's Heritage takes a closer look at this instrument, from its beginning as a flawed engineering nightmare to its evolution, through corrective optics, into humanity's eyes on the universe. Viewers see some of the astonishing images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope through the years and learn of their significance to astronomers. Designers of the next generation of space telescopes explain the challenges that must be met before Hubble's successors can reveal more mysteries of the universe.
