    this fuckin rocks, I love you, I liked the Planck Length, something so small in length that it makes no sense exist, then I realised that this is what holds together the space in front of us which actually consists of matter, then I went off on one starting to think about the fabric of space time and cant stop thinking about that shit now......damm you I will never sleep tonigt now, can someone explain quarks to me why do protons have 2 up but only 1 down quark?

    Theres no way we are alone in the universe, I still dont get the edge of the observable universe, if we cant see beyond it how to we know it ends there?

    we don't - it's just the limit of how far we can observe or calculate anything

    Very cool link. It helps to put things in perspective.

    Good question. I think from what I've read before, its something to do with the rate at which the universe has expanded from the very beginning of the so called 'big bang'. Apparently, it continues to expand. Some very clever egg heads have calculated this rate of expansion and have therefore been able to give an estimate of the size of the universe beyond what is visible to us. Our visible radius is 14 billion light years because that is the age of the universe. When you look up at the night sky, you basically look back in time. Some of the light rays that hit your eyes from some of the stars took hundreds, thousands of years and beyond to reach you. The nearest star is 4.3 light years away from us so when you observe that particular star you are looking at how it appeared 4.3 years ago. Light travels at about 300,000km per second from what i can remember.

    Don't know if that answered your question or if I'm teaching you to suck eggs?
