Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

Thanks for the video. I worked in various space programs for about 20 year of my career. It is a humbling experience to realize just how small we are.

These images are one of things that make me glad to be alive! The immensity of the universe is such a profound idea that it is hard to conceive. The ability of humans to
wonder what is out there is amazing.
 Very groovy

It does point out how small we and our knowledge truly are. In a heretofore confidently proclaimed "Empty area of space" we find 3,000 galaxies. And still in that clip it's stated quite confidently that there are "More then 100 billion galaxies", I guess the "More then" part CTA  Cheesy

Does that help explain where all the "Missing mass" is that physicists try to explain with funny names for theoretical matter. If every "Empty" area of space contains 3,000 - 10,000 Galaxies that's a lot of mass.

And that more than 100 billion is based on what we can see with Hubble?  What about what we can't see?  My understanding, if you could call it that Undecided, is that the universe goes on ad infinitum............I just confused myself Tongue

Last time I checked the amount of the observable universe we have seen is 1.8%

Then there is the stuff we will never see because of expansion.

That can be said about feet and belts in some cases.

Ironically, going microscopically, it's been found there is more empty space than solid material in atoms - unless we need a reverse-Hubble to see what's there. The empty space in atoms was a comment in a recent Science Channel show, anyway.

It blows my mind that religious folk think we are the only ones in the entire universe.  How arrogant can they get?

The thing that really blows my mind is the fact that without Mind or an Observer, the whole thing is utterly meaningless/unreal. WE give it meaning. no observer,no reality. Roll Eyes
