    Five Unanswered Physics Questions

    Found this on one of my old back up disks. It's from a school project a while back, and I thought that maybe someone here would find it interesting. It's a text file I wrote about five questions in physics that have not been and 'possibly' cannot be answered (atleast in any of our lifetimes). Anyhow, here it is, hope someone finds it neat.

    I'd actually do a google search again, but recent Hubble images suggest that per known understanding mass moving out from a object slows with distance. Recent photos suggest the flip side they are speeding up. In a nut shell everyone expected the Universe was slowing down when in fact at the reaches of space they are speeding up, this is an important thing. Everything has an answer it is just at which point in life what is known as answers. After all 100 years ago it was not possible for me to post this reply

    I was referring to the last one that has ocurred. It is actually a cycle so there is an infinite amount of times it could have occured and it is impossible for us to know the number.

    Only one 'Big Bang' can happen at once, I would suggest before you make further inquires on the subject you do some looking for yourself. But as a basic thought on it, the Big Bang occurs once everything in the universe has stopped drifting apart and starts falling back in on itself. Everything ends up compacting itself into an extremely small dense spherical object with an immense amount of gravity/energy excess so much so that once it becomes dense enough it literally blows up, thus creating everything (all matter that is) in the universe that we know. So obviously, two cannot happen at once.

    Yep that s what i was thinking.....makes it a bit more complex.

    What about two at the same time.......

    The hubble telescope does indeed suggest that,but it was actually proven that objects are moving away from each other at an accelerated rate in the late 1980's by astronomers studying microwave background radiation.I don't know of any links that say that,but I'm sure there's plenty out there.I only have the studies in a few books and videos.I highly recommend for anyone interested in cosmology,a set of videos called Stephen Hawking's Universe.Very informative stuff.

    1) The world will learn that Saddam Hussein usually likes wearing panties with a nice lacy frill sewn to the wasteband and a pale green paisley print.

    2) One of the AO members will turn out to be the Unabomber, logging on with a modified PDA the was smuggled into his cell and piggybacked onto the Wardens wireless network. Large downloads of barnyard porn will be what gets him caught.

    3) JP, Brad and Louie will....

    Well ****....that says unanswered PHYSICS questions, not PSYCHIC questions....
