Before Time and Space

before space there was no space - so the big bang occurred no where but everywhere how can there be a time before the bang when there was no such thing as time before the bang? before time there was not any time- - so, no time before time!

Line spectrum of hydrogen atom

The Ruther Fords Alpha particle-gold foil experiment has proved that most of the mass of an atom is concentrated only in a very small region and thus he called this region as the nucleus of atom. Ruther Ford proposed that (BUT WITHOUT ANY EXPERIMANTAL EVIDENCES) electrons revolved around their nuclei in circular orbits with which are just sufficient to balance the attractive force by nuclei. Unfortunately no scientists have questioned this high-speed motion of electrons around the nucleus and this was the beginning of the development of many misleading theories in the history of physical science. Matter wave, uncertainty principle, electron cloud around the nucleus, wave particle duality for particles etc. Charged particles like electron have a standing- electric field and magnetic field in right angle regardless of any kind of its motions.Uncharged particles like neutron have a standing- magnetic field.Since the standing- electric and magnetic fields, an electron cannot travel in a straight line when it accelerated.When a neutron is accelerated, its standing- magnetic field makes it to oscillate. In essence, a particles standing field lines is the reason for the wave nature when it moves at a high speed.The Davisson and Germer experiment showed that particles behave as wave when they are accelerated. But without knowing the structure of particles they blindly supported the Louis DeBroglies matter wave theory.This matter wave theory has led to the development of the quantum mechanical model of atom.The model says that, the nucleus of an atom is surrounded by a series of stationary waves. These waves have crests at certain points, each complete standing wave representing an orbit. The absolute square of the amplitude of the wave at any point at a given time is a measure of the probability that an electron will be found there. Thus, an electron can no longer be said to be at any precise point at any given time. This series of stationary waves by the electrons are used today for explaining all phenomenon that generated by atoms. Jumping of electrons: The space matter density decreases with the increasing of the distance from the nucleus. When an electron oscillates in an atom, for the every oscillation toward the direction of the nucleus, the high density space matter in the inner region of the atom expels the electron to an outer low density space matter region. Line spectrum of hydrogen atom: When the electron shell of a hydrogen atom is excited it will oscillate in its natural frequency, and so the electron present in the shell. This oscillation of the electron causes the emission of the shortest wavelength Lyman series photon (because that frequency is the natural frequency of the electron shell of hydrogen atom) and jumps from the shell to an outer transitory shell. If there is no any further excitation for the atom, the electron will instantaneously falls back to its original shell. Also, this fall into the shell can cause, the shell get excited in a nominal fashion and the emission of a low intensity photon in the natural frequency of the shell. But, if the transitory shell (to which the electron has initially jumped) is simultaneously excited by some ways (for example, collision of an energetic electron from an external source-in a discharge tube or collision between atom),the electron will again get excited and emit a photon in a longer wavelength, in the natural frequency of that transitory shell. Also, this excitation of the electron causes a further jumping to a more outer transitory shell, and these processes can be continued until the electron is expelled out from the atom and to turn the atom into plasma of hydrogen at a very high temperature.For very jumping of the electron to a more and more outer transitory shells, and the excitation of that transitory shell can cause the emission of more and more long wavelength photons, and this is the reason for the emission of more long wavelength photons like Balmer series, Paschen series, Brackett series, Pfund series etc. http://www.physics-edu.org

3of5_Cosmic Odyssey-Hubble Heritage

This is part 3 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.

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 .

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

Stephen Hawking - We must colonize space in order to survive

Note: I edited this video, here is the full 10mins. Stephen Hawking: Asking big questions about the universe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xjBIsp8mS-c http://www.ted.com In keeping with the theme of TED2008, professor Stephen Hawking asks some Big Questions about our universe -- How did the universe begin? How did life begin? Are we alone? -- and discusses how we might go about answering them. PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO: http://www.youtube.com/user/TEDtalksDirector "Since, in the long run, every planetary civilization will be endangered by impacts from space, every surviving civilization is obliged to become spacefaring--not because of exploratory or romantic zeal, but for the most practical reason imaginable: staying alive... If our long-term survival is at stake, we have a basic responsibility to our species to venture to other worlds." Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994 "We need the stars... We need purpose! We need the image the Destiny [to take root among the stars] gives us of ourselves as a purposeful, growing species. We need to become the adult species that the Destiny can help us become! If we're to be anything other than smooth dinosaurs who evolve, specialize and die, we need the stars.... When we have no difficult, long-term purpose to strive toward, we fight each other. We destroy ourselves. We have these chaotic, apocalyptic periods of murderous craziness." Octavia Butler, Parable of the Talents, 1998 "I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread into space. There are too many accidents that can befall life on a single planet. But I'm an optimist. We will reach out to the stars." Stephen Hawking, interview with Daily Telegraph, 2001 "The dinosaurs became extinct because they didn't have a space program. And if we become extinct because we don't have a space program, it'll serve us right!" Larry Niven, quoted by Arthur Clarke in interview at space.com, 2001 "In time, [a Martian] colony would grow to the point of being self- sustaining. When this stage was reached, humanity would have a precious insurance policy against catastrophe at home. During the next millennium there is a significant chance that civilization on Earth will be destroyed by an asteroid, a killer plague or a global war. A Martian colony could keep the flame of civilization and culture alive until Earth could be reverse- colonized from Mars." Paul Davies, The New York Times, 2004 "We must turn our guns away from each other and outwards, to defend the Earth, creating a global and in space network of sensors and telescopes to find asteroids that could destroy our planet and create the systems to stop them. It makes no sense to dream great dreams while waiting to be hit by a train." Buzz Aldrin and Rick Tumlinson, Ad Astra Online, 2006

Stephen Hawking Takes a Zero-Gravity Flight

http://www.FreeScienceLectures.com ZERO-G(TM) and its sponsors, Space Florida and The Sharper Image, flew world-renowned physicist and cosmologist Professor Stephen Hawking into weightlessness today, performing eight parabolas, out of the Shuttle Landing Facility at the Kennedy Space Center in Central Florida. It was the first time Professor Hawking, the world's leading expert on gravity, had a zero-gravity experience. After the flight Stephen Hawking had to say the following: "The zero-g (0g) part was wonderful and the high-g part was no problem. I could had gone on and on. Space here I come!" --- It's Never too Late to Study: http://www.FreeScienceLectures.com --- Notice: This video is copyright by its respectful owners.
