RE: Cosmology
Seriously I'm the only person who thought this was cool? Where is the emoticon for pouting?

Don't sell yourself short Judge, you're an incredible slouch.

RE: Cosmology
I can't watch the video. I receive an error message stating that I am outside of the BBC.co.uk domain.

Do they talk about the heat death of the universe? I'm sure they mention that eventually the night sky will be devoid of visible stars due to further spreading of galaxies, all of the star-birthing nebulae will have been used up, and there will be no new stars created. The whole thing just dissipates in a whimper.

Or do they have a different proposal?

Oh bummer, I can still open it but, apparently, and I am no scientist, but they have figured out a way to watch the universe form from the very beginning until now by taking pictures of radiation? It's really incredible, and I don't understand it, but amazingly cool to watch the video of the galaxies slowly forming and then moving away from each other.....

I'll see if I can find another link.

RE: Cosmology
Explanation from the BBK Website:

Renee Hlozek says there are vital clues about the fate of the Universe waiting to be discovered – clues 13 billion years in the making.

This light has been travelling towards the Earth, formed shortly after the Big Bang.

Working with the Atacama Cosmology Telescope (ACT) collaboration in South America, Hlozek measures the Cosmic Microwave Background (CMB) radiation to see what this light can tell us about the Universe we live in now – and how long it may last.
