    Big Bang: The widely accepted theory that says the universe started expanding roughly 14 billion years ago from an extremely dense and hot state. Black hole: An object with such a strong gravitational field that nothing inside it can escape, including light. Boson: Force-carrying fundamental particles, such as the photon (electromagnetic force) or the W and Z bosons (weak force). In physics, aether theories (also known as ether theories) propose the existence of a medium, a space-filling substance or field, thought to be necessary as a transmission medium for the propagation of electromagnetic or gravitational forces. Since the development of special relativity, theories using a substantial aether fell out of use in modern physics, and are now joined by more abstract.

    There are many different theories as to how and why the universe came to be as it is today. Some of these are religion based, and some are scientific based. The religious ones are often based on nothing more than the stories, which have been passed down through countless generations from either a holy book or passed through word-of-mouth from.   The theory, known as massive gravity, modifies Einstein’s general relativity, positing that the hypothetical particles (gravitons) that mediate the gravitational force themselves have a mass.

    Democritus (/ d ɪ ˈ m ɒ k r ɪ t ə s /; Greek: Δημόκριτος, Dēmókritos, meaning "chosen of the people"; c. – c. BC) was an Ancient Greek pre-Socratic philosopher primarily remembered today for his formulation of an atomic theory of the universe.. Democritus was born in Abdera, Thrace, around BC, although there are disagreements about the exact year. the universe, the larger the instrument, the bet-ter. This is true up to a point, but there are lim-its—limits not imposed by technology but by nature itself. Surrounding Earth is a life-sustaining atmos-phere that stands between our eyes and the radi-ation that falls upon Earth from outer space. This radiation is comprised of a very broad spec-.

This collection of texts taken from writings by Plato, Copernicus, Galilei, Ptolomy, Einstein, Hubble and other theorists discus what the universe is made of, how it works and (ultimately) what our place is in the Grand Scheme of Things, offering good insight into how our knowledge of the universe has developed over the last 40 centuries from Babylonian times to the 20th Century/5(3).

It begins with a tiny fraction of a second after the Big Bang and goes through the way it looks today billion. This book, by Michael J. Crowe of the University of Notre Dame (USA) is an introduction to the fundamentals of stellar astronomy, a history of astronomy, and an account of how the science of astronomy challenged traditional philosophical and theological beliefs with readings from the writings of scientists who contributed most significantly to the development of astronomy.

“I have authored this book to introduce modern theories about the universe and some fundamental principles of physics to readers in Urdu language with an aim to promote scientific thinking and disseminate thought provoking ideas in society,” he told the launching ceremony in the auditorium of the Pakistan Academy of Sciences here.

As you can see, the closer we get to modern times the more unintuitive scientific theories become. No more clear and simple ideas of planets orbiting stars; modern theories are simply strange, and superstring theory is as strange as they come. Superstring theory is the latest guess, if we can use Richard Feynman’s terminology.

The Professor of Astro-Physics at Oxford University selects five seminal books on the workings of the universe. Explains that to appreciate the true beauty of science is to understand its simplicity and universality.

By far the most popular theory in science today is the big bang theory, the idea that the universe came into existence at a certain point in time roughly 15 to 20 billion years ago. In the last 25 years this theory has moved to the forefront of cosmology.

You'll meet some of the key figures whose theories have laid the foundation for the big bang. The “Big Freeze” is a scientific theory of the end of the universe. Though it doesn’t entail gigantic tubs of ice cream drowning everyone, it does spell disaster for everyone.

The universe has a fixed amount of energy in it, and as this energy runs out—so the theory goes—the universe slows other words, there is a slow loss of heat, because heat is produced by the movement of. The theory also highlights how the history of the universe could be very counterintuitive compared to many phenomenon on earth that demonstrate symmetry restoration.

The most popular theory of our universe's origin centers on a cosmic cataclysm unmatched in all of history—the big bang.

Origins of the Universe 4 Minute Read.Abstract: From a modern perspective cosmology is a historical science in so far that it deals with the development of the universe since its origin some 14 billion years ago.

The origin itself may not be subject to scientific analysis and explanation. Nonetheless, there are theories .Day-Age Theory. Easily one of the most popular of current theories to reconcile scientific evidence with God's Word, the Day-Age Theory takes aim on the Hebrew word for "day": yôm.

Stating that the word, while often meaning a hour period, can also refer to an indeterminate duration, these theorists proclaim that a valid (and moreover.
