I literally do this about astronomy. Like, think about it. The stars you look up and see, and the far away galaxies are so far away that the light you are seeing from them is millions of years old. Meaning that you are looking into the past. Think about this also, if a mirror was in space at 100 million light years away and you could see it perfectly, you would be seeing the earth as it was 100 million years ago. I also ponder the fact that compared to the universe (as it is forever expanding) we are microscopic. Smaller than the smallest bacteria on earth relative to the the universe that is. We will never even get to explore these far away places in any of our lifetimes unless a wormhole is created (which seems impossible). What is really cool is that the probe Voyager 1 recently entered intergalactic travel (it left the solar system). On board it has a disc with music, greetings in 55 different languages, directions to find earth, etc. I love space/astronomy.
@2ndAmendment, Astronomy is freaking awesome.
@2ndAmendment, how funny would it be if some really advanced aliens found that disc and came to earth to fvck us up? We basically just wrote our own death warrant
@2ndAmendment, To be fair, that's pretty awesome. I've read about that as well, aren't they trying to develop a way of looking into a past? I'm not too sure, it was a long time ago, so I could be talking absolute bullpoopsticle.
@2ndAmendment, how much do i owe you? Because you just blew my mind...
@2ndAmendment, if there was a mirror 100 million light years away, wouldn't we see 200 million years into the past because the light takes 100 million years to get to the mirror and then another 100 million to come back? I could be wrong, but either way, I love astronomy too my friend.
@2ndAmendment, lot of dam words 4 a comment
@2ndAmendment, you talk about this too much. I'm annoyed. J/K I'm really interested in this stuff as well.
@Sim0nSays , Ha, yeah. So funny! *hides antennae*
@2ndAmendment, your not alone, me to. My sister in law thinks space is boring because everyone likes space but it's just empty. Her reasoning almost gives me as much cancer as her veganism. Yes, she's a hardcore vegan that does zumba, practicality crossfit.
@The Handlebar , gotta go to space. Need space, have to be in space.....
@2ndAmendment, keplar mission just doubled our catalog of known exoplanets.
@2ndAmendment, I ALWAYS piss my friends off with astronomy. It is so fvcking lit tho. With voyager, we just straight up threw it into space with that plaque just hoping it will land on a planet with life. Also, have you heard of SpaceEngine?
@Black Rock Citizen, my head hurts. I want to say no because everything you are seeing has already made it back, but I'm not sure
@2ndAmendment, that'd be interstellar travel, if we were intergalactic, that'd be amazing but sadly no...
@2ndAmendment, a mirror placed 100 million light years away would show the earth 200 million years ago...
@2ndAmendment, I feel like you would appreciate the song 'Stars' by Eriks Esenvalds. It's glorious.
@2ndAmendment, Funny, I do this with quantum physics. I have a friend just like you. We're like yin and yang, macro and micro, relativity and special relativity. It's fun.
@2ndAmendment, *handcuffs you to me* Hi best friend!
@Hamilton Porter, joins handcuff chain* we aaaaare the woooorld!
@r22, thank you for the correction!
@APrettyFartSmeller, Yes that is the word I meant to say. Thank you for the correction!
@The Chair Rapist, I minored in astronomy so I can help you out. What it is is that since stars are light years away and that's the amount of distance light travels in a year when you see something 1 light year away you are technically seeing it 1 year ago. The light we see if the light that left 1 year ago. So for stars that are 20 light years away we are seeing what they looked like 20 years ago. That's how you can technically see things in the past. So some of those stars you see may not even be alive anymore 😞
@2ndAmendment, I think about this so often
@2ndAmendment, if jimmy neutron taught me anything, it's not to send out greetings with directions into space
@2ndAmendment, marry me
@SheWhoMustNotBeNamed, I'm engaged :/ sorry. But we could be friends.
We may have a downvote troll
When you are vegan and you havn't told anyone yet
@Thatonehero, this one time, at crossfit..
Falout 4 survival mode, far harbor hype, and frame rate issues.
This picture makes me feel like I need glasses
Don't say the word Disneyland around me.
Pokemon sun n moon
That person who vapes and does crossfit
