Space, the final frontier. A seemingly endless space, tayaschee an infinite variety of previously unknown things and dangers that can not imagine, not to mention the fact to understand even a brilliant person's mind. Looking at the stars in the night sky, it's hard not to wonder about what lies out there, beyond our earthly existence?
Good or bad, but there are people who start "too loud to think" what could be "out there" and colourful, but fictional detail trying to give their hypotheses life. And sometimes these unfounded ideas, like a real virus, spread among companies and, more scary, trying to push real science and replace true knowledge crazy theories, which in turn can represent a very big danger.
Not all these crazy theories are born equally. Most of them are really delusional. But sometimes, due to its complexity (more confusion) and saturation on the details of such theories may sound very plausible. These crazy theories, life is given only a few believers in the truth of these people, and then spread them to the masses, we will now discuss.
Venus was a comet
Imagine that our Solar system is a pool table, and the planet — billiard balls. They constantly collide and break each other, creating on their way to new space objects. Around about the same wrote scientist and psychiatrist Immanuel Velikovsky in his 1950 bestseller "worlds collide".
On the pages of his book the author reports that approximately 3500 years ago, the great cosmic body crashed into Jupiter. As a result of this collision, from the planet broke off a piece that became a wandering comet through the Solar system and at some point even been the cause of many biblical catastrophes, while in the end not formed in the planet Venus.
Physicists and astronomers almost unanimously rejected the theory Velikovsky. Largely because it violates all conceivable laws of physics. For example, this idea was in direct contradiction with the law of motion of Newton, which describes concepts such as velocity and acceleration. Another contradiction of this theory was the fact that the composition of the atmosphere of Venus is completely different from the composition of the atmosphere of Jupiter. In the end, to this day there is no geological evidence that could, at least indirectly, to speak in favor of this theory.
And yet the book Velikovsky has gained great popularity. Most likely people were attracted to the form and content in which the author gives the reader various biblical stories and ancient mythology.
Aspirations. I script
I'm sure many of you have heard about the Big Bang theory, in which one of the tiny particles of the universe began, which continues to be expanded, stretched and simultaneously cooled, moving further beyond its original point of formation. But what if the Big Bang is the result of a massive collision?
Take two Universes, kick them to each other and you will see the beginning of the so-called espiritismo scenario of the origin of life, the idea of which was conceived in 2001 by several physicists. In this theory the universe has a cylindrical shape, and the events occurring in it are periodically repeated. The essence of the theory is that two or more multidimensional Universes faced, gave rise to our Universe, but without inflation and the continuing expansion after the Big Bang.
Like many other models of the Universe, aspirations. I script relies heavily on presumptions about the mechanisms that allow this Universe to exist. Despite the fact that many modern scholars believe this theory is very interesting, in their opinion it is too difficult and at the same time to a greater extent relies only on a set of common assumptions.
Nature often show us their mirror symmetry. If somewhere there is a black hole, why not assume that there are white holes?
Black holes are the most mysterious objects in the Universe possessing such a powerful gravitational pull that nothing, not even the slightest particle of light, unable to escape their fate of being trapped inside this object, after crossing the point of no return — the so-called event horizon.
If we assume the existence of white holes, then in theory the horizon of their events will work in completely the opposite direction and instead of being drawn into itself all living and non-living, it is rather all to push myself.
Any matter trapped near the white hole will cause its destruction. Since black holes do exist and are formed as a result of destruction of stars, where matter exists, then the possibility of the existence of white holes and probably impossible.
In other words, black holes do not have to have its antipode. They really can only be points in space, not having the "other" side.
The universe is a hologram
With all the current popularity of virtual reality technology it is not surprising that there are people who believe that our universe itself is one giant illusion. It is quite possible that our bodies really are not truly three-dimensional objects, but instead we all live inside a two-dimensional hologram. A group of scientists from Fermilab (national accelerator laboratory them. Enrico Fermi) in the city of Illinois (USA) decided to conduct an experiment to find the answer to this question.
The essence of the experiment was the use of powerful laser beams combined in L-shaped device, dubbed golomer. If installed in the device, the sensors determine the variation in brightness of the laser beams, to happen it is likely to be the result of noise of space-time in the beam path or interference. Ultimately, this could mean that the universe in which we live has limitations that can only store a certain amount of information.
The idea that the universe is a hologram based on the assumption that space and time in the Universe are not continuous. Instead, they are discrete and "pixelation", so it is impossible to increase the "scale image" of the Universe is infinite, penetrating deeper and deeper into the essence of things. For certain values of the scale, the universe takes the form of an image with very low quality and therefore uninformative. In the end, theory suggests that the universe actually exists only in two dimensions and the third dimension is an illusion or hologram created by the interference of space and time.
However, the theory does not seem absolutely insane. The main difficulty of the proof or refutation of this theory is that nothing in this world can not move faster than the speed of light. In consequence, it is not possible to determine what is the world around us — a reality or a hologram.
The observation of dark energy makes it unstable
You have probably heard the saying "when you wait, time goes very slowly." So according to some theorists, if a long look at the Universe, or part of it, then this process will destroy it. And some people believe that the observation of dark energy destabilizie our reality.
Scientists currently think that matter — such as stones, glass, water and so on — are in the Universe, only about 4 percent of the space. More than 26 percent of the allotted dark matter. But to touch this matter is impossible. And in binoculars you will not see too. All because dark matter is a type of mass that we cannot see. All we know about her is the fact that it exists. This is evidenced by its gravitational effects which it produces on other objects in space.
The remaining 70 percent of space is dark energy. Scientists still are not sure what it is, but it is this invisible force, in their opinion, is the accelerating factor in the expansion of the Universe.
In the article, which received very wide publicity, Professor Lawrence Krauss theorizes that the observation of dark energy "can shorten the life of the Universe." This occurs as a consequence of the quantum Zeno effect — quantum paradox according to which the observation object can directly affect this object. In other words, if we observe dark energy, thus can bring down her internal quantum clock, which in turn may cause the return of matter to an earlier form of its existence As a result — we will canoe into oblivion.
In fact, the article Krauss (especially the ending) was very embellished media and other sources of media. The scientist immediately released an edited version of his article, which is however not abandoned total previously proposed ideas. So the quantum Zeno effect is quite real. If you happen to see dark energy, for the sake of living, for the sake of the entire Universe don't look at it too closely. Suddenly a really "live".
The information paradox of black holes
Nothing, not even the smallest particle of light, is not able to avoid the fate of being absorbed inside the black hole, if next. Unfortunately, scientists still don't know what happens to the object that got inside a black hole. Can be on the other side of this mysterious celestial body object hits the evil version of Disneyland? Maybe the object simply ceases to exist, completely collapsing, as if it was never there?
Earlier theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking suggested that black holes really can completely destroy the entire essence of the object, leaving only a tiny quantum trace (electric charge or spin). But in this theory there is one discrepancy. The fact that according to all known laws of the Universe information may not be completely lost. It must be stored somewhere, otherwise washed into existence just is not there. Quantum mechanics along with many of the accepted principles of physics will sink into oblivion, leaving scientists with only the most basic knowledge about the properties of reality.
In the late 1990s, Hawking rejected the idea that black holes completely destroy information. Instead, he suggested that the information may indeed still exist, but in a different form.
In other words, if you will have a chance to get into a black hole, I advise you to relax and to take into account the fact that information about you will be completely lost. It is possible that you will be somewhere rebuilt, but in a different form.
The moon does not rotate
There is one issue that occasionally plagued the minds of beginner astronomers. When you look at the moon, it always looks the same. Did the Moon not rotate?
In fact, the Moon rotates. Only the process takes almost one earth month. It is not necessary to forget that besides rotation around its own axis, the Moon also turns around the Earth, therefore, the natural satellite of our planet is always turned to us only through one side. This effect is called synchronous rotation.
The truth is, we don't always see a static image of the moon. In certain periods of its orbit, the Moon tilted in our direction so that we can see more of its surface. Most with the Earth you can see only 59 percent of this celestial body. The remaining 41 percent we will never see if we will be on the Ground. In turn, those who will be behind the moon never see the Earth.
Pulsars are beacons of aliens
For decades scientists have been observing various signals from space someday to find proof that a particular signal was sent in our direction extraterrestrial life. Who knows, maybe in the far Universe really there are other forms of life, as we are desperately hoping to make contact with the space brothers, sending rays consist of electromagnetic radiation.
There on the Ground people who with full confidence believe that pulsars are actually giant beacons aliens. These cosmic objects are sources of electromagnetic radiation, which they release every few seconds (or fractions of seconds) during its rotation. Released this energy beams pass through the entire Universe.
Regular and repeated radiation of pulsars, some people are beginning to accept as a means of communication. However, it sometimes happens that the pulsation frequency (radiation) changes. This occurs as a result of small changes in the rotation period of the pulsar. So far none of the received signals from these space objects was not so complex or structured, which would indicate that this momentum is a kind of special form of communication or to communication.
Perhaps one day another space civilization and the truth will send us a postcard for the New year or Christmas. And if this really happens, I would like to believe that humanity will be sufficiently prepared in terms of technology to correctly interpret the sent "greetings".
Planet X will destroy our world
Somewhere in the darkness of space, a planet with no orbit and not tied to any star system. The planet is moving towards Earth. The clash is inevitable. Nothing on Earth can survive this catastrophe. Our world will completely disappear. Thank you for being with us all these years, our dear readers. See you in another world.
About the way we would write on our website about planet X, if there was a high probability of its collision with the Earth. Fortunately, no planet X no.
The story of planet X first appeared in 1995. Came up with her Leader Nancy, a resident of Wisconsin (USA), during an online discussion lovers of UFOlogy. On the forum a woman told a story about what she allegedly was abducted by aliens who put her head a tiny transmitter in order to convey the woman and to the world information about the threat of collision with planet X.
According to her planet X will pass close to Earth so close that they violate the natural processes occurring on our planet and, of course, will destroy all life on it. According to all rumors, the story quickly spread around the Internet and eventually made it to the governments of many countries.
Seeing the growing panic, scientists from the space Agency NASA made a statement that if planet X really existed, the most powerful telescopes of the Earth would be able to detect it and humanity would be at least several decades to prepare for this large-scale disaster. To produce more themed t-shirts doomsday and related products.
The doctrine of eternal ice
Very logical at first glance crazy theory can really be of interest to you and make you think. Other cause you only think about what their authors too had too much alcohol. And most likely, when he invented the so-called doctrine of eternal ice (it. Welteislehre, also known as the doctrine of "vel"), the latter scenario seems more probable than the first.
Austrian engineer Hans Hoerbiger in 1913 wrote a post that in 1918, thanks to Philip Foutu turned into a book, where the authors put forward a very crazy theory of the creation of our Solar system. According to this theory, everything in the Universe owes its appearance to the ice. The book is full of mythological stories interspersed with pseudo-science.
The story looks like this: long ago, a very ancient cosmic body that contains a huge amount of frozen water was faced with a giant verhalltem (flaming sphere). As a result of this disaster ice object exploded, releasing an incredible amount of water vapor, which is subsequently crystallized and turned into many chunks of ice scattered throughout the Universe. As you might guess, Hoerbiger believed that the planets of our Solar system were originally formed from these chunks of ice. The author believed that the original Solar system consisted of up to 30 planets. Next story is even more interesting. According to Hoerbiger, the hail falling on the Earth is the result of hitting the Earth's atmosphere meteors.
Hoerbiger died in 1931, but it is unlikely that he would not be happy with the fact that his theory was wearing historiosophical character for the Third Reich. And interesting fact is that Soviet Russia was interpreted as the concentration of the forces of eternal ice as opposed svastičnaâ solar Third Reich. published
