We loved fairytales and all those picture books filled with bright colors and playful figures that left us with pleasurable memories.
The latest space exploration pictures coming back from NASA’s Mars Rover Opportunity are nothing less than spectacular. Watching the NASA team jump for joy after a near-fatal glitch threatened to shut the probe down forever was the reason for their collective jubilance. Seeing that so much hard work and money were put into NASA’s search for answers.
What is the quantum theory? Quantum theory is concerned with the emission and absorption of energy by matter and with the motion of material particles; the quantum theory and the theory of relativity together form the theoretical basis of modern physics.
The problem of galaxy formation lies in the idea that most cosmologists believe the big-bang universe began as a smooth distribution of matter, and now appears to have become clumpy with galaxies, super-galaxies, voids, clusters, walls, and sheets of galaxies etc.
The purpose of this paper is to present to the reader a foundation upon which to understand some of the basics of the Big Bang Theory. More specifically, it will be an attempt to describe in brief many of the major problems with the theory as well as define the terms used.
The Big Bang is the popularized version of evolutionary cosmology. It states that matter, energy, and space were all compressed many billions of times smaller than a proton and then exploded for some undetermined reason to create an expanding universe which continues to spread today.
One of the most memorable images of our planet earth is a picture taken 240,000 miles away from Apollo 11, close to the surface of the moon.
