Transcript of The Big Bang

From the big bang came stars. Stars usually form in the dust clouds containing 99% gas 1% dust, by mass. These dust clouds are called nebula's. Stars form from left over hydrogen and helium from the big bang. Gravity pulls all of the gas together, and clumps it up into one small space until the gravity gets too strong. Eventually the immense gravity will cause the figure to collapse in on itself, and catch fire.
The weird part about planets is that they form out of the same materials that stars do. With the exception of colapsing in on itself and catching fire.
In the center of a galaxy is a super massive black hole. Hundreds of thousands of stars circle around the black hole, each with its own planets, slowly, very slowly moving into the center over time. All galaxy's are made of billions and billions of nabulae. that's why they seem so colorful.
You think YOU'RE BIG ?
How we came to be
The Big Bang was the creator of the universe, the creator of time, life, stars, planets and everything you know and see today. It was an unimaginably hot and dense point where everything took place. Everything that exists instantaneously spread out over the universe.
This Outstanding explosion took place in almost a hundredth of a billionth of a trillionth of a trillionth of a second. This process is known as inflation due to the rapid increase in expansion.
Stars and Nebulae
The Beginning
Planets may have crazy qualities and some are just barren and are boring. Some planets have life, and by some, I mean Billions. Life is all around the universe whether you believe it or not.
You think that's big? This is only what we've discovered. Imagine what else is out there...
From our understanding, The Big Bang defies all of the laws that we know and define as physics. The Big Bang came from a point in space called a singularity, no one really knows where it comes from, but think that it may hide deep in the center of a black hole.
Since the time of the Egyptians, people have been looking up to the sky's and creating figures out of the stars. Most of the time, they make constellations based on their religion.
Orion is a very popular constellation that I try to find when I look at the sky. Orion is often nicknamed the hunter, and is often mistaken for carrying a dead lion because of this.
To be honest, Science doesnt even prove that the big bang actually exists, other than the fact that far out stars and planets are moving away from us and getting faster each second, it's just a theory.
Life, to be honest, doesn't have a lot of meaning... Life pretty much just exists to exist...
Really, what impact are we making in the universe, and it is almost a given that there is life other than us out there that is so much advanced in civilization and evolution. we've only started our plan towards mars in all of the years that we've been on earth, and its going to be hard.
Just like planets, we formed out of the same gas that stars do. Based on evolution, the first ever complex living thing that was on this planet, was a blue green moss that could photosynthesize. And of course there were microscopic organisms everywhere. We are made of star dust, and so is every other living creature on this planet. I think that is pretty cool.

A big thanks to Jonas canter for the video.
Have you ever noticed the similarity between the pyramids of Giza and Orion's belt? I don't think that this is any coincidence. Each pyramid is almost exactly alined with each of the stars. Obviously there are minor differences, because nothing stays in the same place for 4,500 years
There are many different colors of a nebula. The only reason nebula's have color, is because of the atoms contained in the nebula. We don't know what color a nebula is, but i think it would either be clear or grey. A red nebula usually means that it has an abundance of hydrogen. A blue one only reflects the light of nearby stars, and usually are blue due to the light scattering. Dark nebula are usually purple to black, and block out other nebulae. It looks like there is a big smudge in them.
There is an obvious resemblance between the two pictures. How did they almost exactly measure the stars and plan the pyramids accordingly. This just fascinates me. And it turns out that not only were the pyramids of Giza similar to Orion's belt, but so were the Teotihuacan pyramids.
And a special thanks to...
A singularity is a 1 dimensional area that contains an infinite mass, in an infinitely small space. In this space, gravity becomes infinite and space time curves. All of the laws of physics cease to exist.
Black Hole
A black hole is a rip in space and time, that nothing can escape, not even light. Usually it is caused by a collapse of a solar body, most likely a Newtonian star. In other cases, it could be the implosion of a red hyper giant. The gravity is so strong, that it rips a hole in the very fabric of reality and obliterates everything. Some speculate that it opens a wormhole on the opposite side of the universe, but it is impossible to squeeze through. Lets say you throw something into a black hole and watch it. As it is being sucked into the black hole, it will seem to slow down, and then stop when it reaches the very edge of the black hole, and slowly will fade away into nothingness.
Everyone has heard of it, but there is no true way of explaining it. It is one of the natural reoccurring forces in the universe, that keeps everything together, and functioning. As you get farther away from the earths surface gravity isn't as strong as it is on the ground. If you drop a ball from mount Everest, it will fall slower than normal, not noticeable, just slower. And no matter how much it weighs, it will fall at the same rate.
If you drop 1 ton of feathers and 10 tons of bricks at the same time, which will hit the ground first?
The Universe is so freakishly large that we have to use light years to measure it. A light year is the distance light can travel in a year. Light can travel 186,282 M.P.S. (Miles Per Second). It would take light approximately 16 minutes to circle our sun once.

The worlds largest star ever seen in the universe is over 1,976,640,000 km, 1,227,000,000 miles in length. It takes light over 8 hours to circle it one time. For a comparison, the earth is only 25,000 miles around.
