    The universe started with an explosion. Everything in the middle moved from the center rapidly. The center is empty. All the matter is somewhat equidistant from the empty center. Therefore the balloon analogy. No it will not return. There are no forces on the outside pushing back. The end is a cold dark universe.

    the question is whether the "surface" of the balloon is the fastest moving stuff or the slowest moving stuff........

    Alright dude, you've succeeded in dumbing down the IQ level of this thread far enough. Unfortunately, I was complicit in it because I egged on your low-brow dumbfuckery for my own amusement.

    Time to end it now and let those who want to, have an intelligent conversation about the OP topic.

    Go fuck up another thread.

    And at the very beginning you could see a star being formed. You could see the outlines of a silvery blond hair comb over. His name was Donald Trump.

    Wow, this is some bromance you have. Do you have a poster of him in your bedroom?

    Yuck. That was creepy on so many levels.

    I ordered the DeGrasse book in Kindle format yesterday, fixing to go tear into it in a few minutes. They even gave me a $2.50 credit so it was only $5.50. I don't have the intellect to comprehend this stuff the way that physicists can, but it's still fascinating to learn even at my level.

    I am sure most of us would prefer that this thread stick to gravitational lensing, relativity, dark matter, and cosmology.

    I am sure there are other places that would be comfortable hearing about your homo-erotic fantasies about your Orange tinted Hero.

    Yes, I read all of Sagans books, Iím fascinated, too but no where near their level, happy they dumb it down for me.
    Great deal.

    The light that reached Earth was among the first to ever twinkle on after the Big Bang.


    Astronomers now hope they are able to make yet more similar discoveries, allowing them to watch as the universe began.


    The observations allowed scientists to pick up part of an extremely distant quasar, sending out a beam of light that is almost as old as the universe itself.

    Did they SEE GOD?
    SEP 2016: Obama asked McConnell to co-write a LETTER of CONDEMNATION of Russian interference
    into the upcoming election and to alert US. The CIA DIR
    had briefed BOTH parties Congr'l leaders of the same.

    McConnell told Brennan,
    ďYouíre trying to screw the Republican nominee.Ē

    McCONNELL REFUSED to sign the letter.

    The rest is history!
