    Black holes are one of the many things in the universe that scientists still have a muddy understanding about. However, with the incredible advances of technology, we are able to understand more than what we have in the past. Today, the only way to observe these incredible objects are by looking for radiation from the gas surrounding it. What are they? Black holes are no more than a ^3 dead star. ^2 A star that is considered ^3 alive^2 would be our sun. The sun still produces energy by convertin...

    For many years time travel was the stuff of science fiction. This was all just part of the world's imagination until recently. Scientists now believe that the current laws of physics allow us to travel though time. They believe that we can now travel back to see our founding fathers sign the declaration of independence. We could travel to 2999 to witness the birth of the next new millennium. Such travel would require a machine capable of withstanding great pressures and incredible amounts of spe...

    Albert Einstein was born on March 14, 1879 in Ulm, Germany. Further to this, his parents initially believed him to be somewhat backward as he was late in starting to talk. Einstein was noted for saying that he waited until he could speak incomplete sentences before he would say a word. He entered school at the age of six and to his parents surprise, he did very well. Albert did not mix well with other students, often preferring to play his own private games or reading books; he never liked schoo...

    Time? Time travel is no longer regarded as strictly science fiction. For years the concept of time travel has been the topic of science fiction novels and movies, and has been pondered by great scientists throughout history. Einstein's theories of general and special relativity can be used to actually prove that time travel is possible. Government research experiments have yielded experimental data that conclusively illustrate that fast moving aircraft have traveled into the future. This phenome...

    Stephen J. Hawking by Rachel Finck Stephen Hawking was born in January of 1942 in Oxford, England. He grew up near London and was educated at Oxford, from which he received his BA in 1962, and Cambridge, where he received his doctorate in theoretical physics. Stephen Hawking is a brilliant and highly productive researcher, and, since 1979, he has held the Luc asian professorship in mathematics at Cambridge, the very chair once held by Isaac Newton. Although still relatively young, Hawking is alr...

    The oldest profession in the world is not what would be commonly accepted in society. Before a woman had a chance to sell her body, people looked up at the stars and wondered what they were. They made figures out of the shapes they made. As we advanced through scientific research many other doors opened that allowed us to see what it was the earth is existing in. Our constant need to explain what is happening comes from our want to control. Knowledge is power, and nothing is more unexplained th...

    THE PHYSICS OF INTERSTELLAR TRAVEL Introduction Many people wonder when we will be able to travel to distant solar systems as easily as envisioned in science fiction. This essay will explain the challenges of interstellar travel, the prospects and limitations of existing propulsion ideas, and the prospects emerging from science that may one day provide the breakthroughs needed to enable practical interstellar voyages. Analogies to familiar science fiction are used to simplify notions such as the...

    The Collapse of the Universe and the Reversal of Time Cosmologists today do not agree on whether the universe will expand forever, or will eventually re collapse. And among those who subscribe to the latter view, there is disagreement over the nature of the collapse. Some believe it will be a mirror image of the big bang, so that any intelligent creatures living during the second half of the universe's life will sense time moving in the reverse direction, and view us as living in their future. T...

    Genius Overlooked Jess Brock Algebra III Summer School Mr. Palumbo July 24, 1999 Stephen Hawking is, all in all, one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century. Dr. Hawking is a theoretical physicist. In his own words, "A theoretical physicist[tries] to construct mathematical models which represent the universe." Sadly, though, his triumphs are often overshadowed by his illness. Dr. Hawking suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and generally his successes are viewed "even though" o...

One of the few scientists who revolutionized the entire Physics field and the way we think, he is responsible for ideas as grand and complex as the relationships that exist between time and gravity, to why the sky is blue, an issue now considered to be fundamental. Albert Einstein was born March 14, 18...

    The Question (Submitted December 02, 1996) I'm a 10 year old boy who has a very hard question to ask. My teacher Mr. Sperling just had us learn about the Solar System. We just made a Internet site. Now my question. What is at the edge of the Universe? The Answer That's an interesting question. The short answer is that there isn't any "edge" to the Universe, as in the edge of your school grounds where there is more property beyond. Science fiction and other dimensions aside, the best way of look...

    According to Stephen W. Hawking, Black holes are rips in the fabric of space of the universe. They can be neither be visible to our eyes nor are they detectable by even the most powerful telescope -- the Hubble Telescope -- so far created by man. According to Hawking also, the Black hole are nothing but dead stars. The collapse of the star leads to singularity. The black hole may be described as the final stage in the death of a star before the point of singularity is reached. For Roger Pen...

    Of Albert Einstein Albert Einstein Of all the physicists that have existed in the twentieth century, one of them stands out above all the rest for very good reasons. This physicist's name is Albert Einstein. This man's hard work revolutionized the manner in which scientists of today think about the natural universe. As we, the population of the world, march into the new millenium, Einstein will be the man to whom we look for guidance in further understanding this wide, confusing universe that co...

    By: Nothing Black Holes By: Hazzard Every day we look out upon the night sky, wondering and dreaming of what lies beyond our planet. The universe that we live in is so diverse and unique, and it interests us to learn about all the variance that lies beyond our grasp. Within this marvel of wonders, our universe holds a mystery that is very difficult to understand because of the complications that arise when trying to examine and explore the principles of space. That mystery happens to be that of ...

    "In Black Holes BLACK HOLES "In the beginning, there was light.' That is true in the case of black holes too. Black holes are the result of burned out stars that have collapsed on themselves. When a star begins to run out of fuel, the internal pressure of the fusion reactions, which was before, counteracted by gravity, begins to win over gravity. The star soon can no longer support its own weight and its outer layers escape its gravitational pull. This powerful explosion is called a super nova. ...
