interesting. that requires a lot of thought.

Re: RELATIVITY QUESTIONS! (and other common queries)

if a supernova can reach another solar system would the radiation from the other solar system's star do anything to affect the supernova? assuming they were the size and roughly the same age. No, the supernova would most likely sterilize the solar system. wow how quickly would the radiation travel ...

Re: Why would I need to blow up the moon?

im wondering if the guy has done his project yet? and the guy who talked about getting the energy that will come from blowing up the moon the kinetic energy the net energy was in my opinion the best reason

Re: RELATIVITY QUESTIONS! (and other common queries)

Saying you can draw an infinite number of lines from a given point is not the same as saying all lines converge at one singular point. ok why? does the fact that i can make a 3d model of that all lines converge at a single point on a three dimensional plane not just prove that they can? please tell...

i believe that all of our theories about the distance between other solar systems and ours or between galaxies, etc. could be either completely right or completely wrong.
