Space: The Universe

At this stage in human history, in the opening decades of the twenty-first century, there is much we have learned of the wider cosmos; the great unknown in the far reaches of space. However, that is merely a tiny amount of what would most likely await us if we were to one day figure out how to reduce the extraordinarily long time it would take to reach the outer regions of our own solar system, much less the infinite black sea that is the known and unknown universe beyond.

Might we find life is in abundance in other galaxies and star systems? Or might it one day prove to be the case that the universe, in general, is a lifeless void, containing only an array of planets and moons, each with their own inhospitable, if scientifically intriguing environments?

Regardless of whether we discover other forms of life or not, there are still a great many things to investigate and learn about in the outer regions of space. What would we discover about other little-understood phenomena such as black holes and where they might lead? And what might we discover about the reality of wormholes and portals? And might such information one day help us to understand such things as the “Big Bang”, the widely accepted start of the universe? Perhaps even more mind-bending, might we then start to contemplate what, if anything, came before this momentous event, and what might come after our universe possibly ceases to be.

Indeed, our understanding of the Universe and just what exactly it is would likely lead to a sudden understanding of life itself, and where we fit into the grand cosmic scheme of things…

If we imagine for one moment the infinite nature of the Universe, then it shouldn’t really surprise us that there are likely over 100 billion galaxies out there in the far reaches of space. And each of these galaxies themselves will likely house thousands of solar systems and planets. We are discovering new planets all the time, but some, are more interesting than others, particular those that might support life…

Chances Are, We Really Aren’t Alone! And Science Agrees!

Many people scoff and dismiss the idea of life existing elsewhere in the Universe without a second thought. However, the fact is, that statistically speaking, and backed up by scientific evaluation and formulae, that it would almost be an impossibility for life not to exist somewhere in the deep, infinite reaches of space. Of course, whether that life is “intelligent” or merely microbial in nature is perhaps the key question…

Crazy Facts About Space And The Universe That You Might Not Know

What we know today in the twenty-first century about space and the Universe pales in comparison to what we knew only as recently as the 1970s or 1980s. And, it is most likely if inevitable, that what we know even only a decade into the future will be vastly more than we do today. The fact is, discoveries regarding space and the universe are happening every single day. And the more we learn, the more we realize how much there is left to learn…
