The purpose of this paper is to show some of the modern beliefs regarding the beginning of the universe by finding the answer of these questions. What are the commonly excepted theories of the evolution of the ...
  • Natural Aspect Of A Scientific Theory
    630 words
    Samir Kumar September 15, 1996 ANALYSIS OF THE OPINION OF JUDGE WILLIAM R. OVERTON Judge William R. Overton sets out five criteria in examining the validity of "creation science" as a scientific theory in the case McLean vs. Arkansas. Two of these characteristics are testability against the empirical world and the tentativeness of a theory's conclusion. Overton explains why he thinks these criteria are important and why creation science fails to satisfy them. Overton feels that testability again...
  • Evidence To The Big Bang Theory
    1,342 words
    Evidence for the Big Bang Theory: Whether you happen to be walking down a neighborhood street on a starry night, or trekking across Canada in a car, or rising to the bright sunshine that beams through your bedroom window in the morning, many of us easily take it for granted, or perhaps it simply goes unnoticed that we are, human beings living on a planet called Earth; or that the beautiful stars in the sky have existed long before we did; or that our planet is but a tiny speck of sand in the gra...
  • Forces Act As String Theory
    968 words
    String theory is defined by Merriam-Webster as, "A physical theory in which one-dimensional loops travel through space and also merge and lyse as time elapses. This is in contrast to ordinary quantum field theory, which predicts point particles that emit and absorb each other. String theory is a candidate for a Theory of Everything". String theory would solve the long fight between Einstein's theory of relativity and Quantum Physics. String theory proclaims that everything in our universe, from ...
  • Idea Similar To The Big Bang Theory
    1,408 words
    The Big Bang Why is the Universe expanding? What is Cosmic Back Ground Radiation (CBR)? There are many questions asked about our Universe, which we know so little about. Scientists, in their attempt to answer these and other confrontations, have found one idea that seems to explain much of what we don't understand: The Big Bang Theory. An explosion of incomprehensible speed was the beginning of our known Universe and existence. At that time matter as small as the head of a pin inflated to become...
  • Copernican Theory Of Motion Of Earth
    461 words
    Galileo Galilei 'founder of modern experimental science' Galileo Galilei was one of the most remarkable scientists ever. He discovered many new ideas and theories and introduced them to mankind. Galileo helped society as an Italian astronomer and physicist, but how did he come to be such a great and well-known scientist? It took hard work and patience... Galileo was born during the renaissance in Pisa, Italy on February 15, 1564. He was raised by his mom, Giulia Am manati, and his dad, Vincenzo ...
  • Scientific Theory And The Bible
    622 words
    Creation or Evolution Where did we come from Did God create our incredible world in six days, and do we all descend from Adam and Eve Or was the universe created billions of years ago, possibly by a "Big Bang", with all living things evolving from a single organism These questions have been debated for hundreds, if not thousands, of years, and there is still no answer that satisfies everyone. Until the 18th century, most people never doubted the Biblical theory of Creation; that God was responsi...

Supersting theory is one of the latest forms of theoretical physics and a popular topic with today's society. However, because of the highly advanced nature of the mathematics involved with Supersting theory, two postgraduate forms of mathematics ar...
  • Big Bang Theory
    274 words
    Big Bang Theory, currently accepted explanation of the beginning of the universe. The big bang theory proposes that the universe was once extremely compact, dense, and hot. Some original event, a cosmic explosion called the big bang, occurred about 10 billion to 20 billion years ago, and the universe has since been expanding and cooling. The theory is based on the mathematical equations, known as the field equations, of the general theory of relativity set forth in 1915 by Albert Einstein. In 19...

  • Our Universe's Big Bang
    4,230 words
    Since the dawn of intelligent man, humanity has speculated about the origins of the universe. There is evidence, which indicates that the universe started around 15 billion years ago. This is probably the greatest discovery imaginable; however, the universe still seems to be a very controversial subject. Most scientists agree that there was a beginning but there is a lot of speculation of how it (the universe) actually started. The much-celebrated Greek philosopher, Aristotle, denied the fact th...
  • Dualities Between The Various String Theories
    797 words
    String theory is one of the most exciting and profound developments in modern theoretical physics. Unfortunately it is a highly technical subject that can only be well understood using the tools of Quantum Field Theory. It also doesn't hurt to know some mathematics like Group Theory, Differential Geometry, and Algebraic Geometry. Needless to say this is prohibitive for most people who are far too busy doing other things. String theory is to be a theory of quantum gravity, then the average size o...
  • Superstring Theories
    549 words
    In 1979 two scientists met at The Center for Nuclear Research (CERN). Thesemen's names are Michael Green and John Schwarz. John Schwarz had been working on the Theory of Superstrings / Theory of Everything. Michael Green the younger of the two men was studying all research that he could get his hands on, and was fascinated by the Theory. John Schwarz who had been tired of the Theory of Superstrings and the Theory of Everything in 1974 saw a new passion and new data that would be the fuel for Mic...
  • Center Of The Universe
    435 words
    vs. A Florentine philosopher, physicist, and inventor. This is a lot of work to do in one life time. Galileo Galilei did all that and even more. He is most commonly remembered for his condemnation by the Holy Office as a result of his attempting to prove the Copernican theory of the universe. Galileo was born on February 15, 1564, in Pisa, Italy. He died in Florence, Italy, on January 8, 1642. He first got investigated by th Congregation of the Holy Office on February 19, 1616. Galileo acted abr...
  • Theory Of General Relativity To The Universe
    1,384 words
    The first and most popular explanation is the big bang cosmology. The development of new and better tools for astronomical observation and Einstein's discovery of the theory of General Relativity sparked a revolution in this field in the early part of the 20th century. (Cite source) Now, we believe that the universe started as a prim review fireball that exploded about 15 billion years ago. It took time, observational evidence, and careful verification of predictions made by the Big Bang model t...
  • Universe As The Big Bang
    3,966 words
    The Origin Some 12 billion years ago the universe emerged from a hot, dense sea of matter and energy. As the cosmos expanded and cooled, it spawned galaxies, stars, planets and life. Since the beginning of human civilization, people have always questioned the origins of their existence and the creation of the universe. Cosmology, the scientific study of the large scale structure and evolution of the universe, has developed and evolved in response to the human need to know our roots (Silk, Big Ba...
  • Science To Many People
    396 words
    The "unexplainable" is not really impossible to explain; the knowledge needed to explain it has not been acquired. People explain things in terms of science, theory, religion, and just making things up. People have been coming up with theories and stories for things they couldn't explain or understand since the beginning of time. Early in time the things people couldn't explain the reasoning, they would say its god's doing. Religion and magic were more real than science to many people up until t...
  • Theory Of An Expanding Universe
    1,427 words
    The "Big Bang" theory of the origin of the universe is a controversial yet widely accepted theory in the creation of the universe to it's present form. Dating back in history, the groundwork of famous scientists and their theories helped to develop the Big Bang theory to what is stands as today. Special note goes to that of Friedmann, Hubble and Einstein who all played major roles in the establishment of this theory and are all included in this essay. Other points that constitute this essay incl...
  • From The Big Bang To Black Holes
    785 words
    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 Penrose,...
  • String Theory And Inflation Theory Eternal Inflation
    419 words
    Before The Big Bang Every since scientists came up with an idea of how the universe started and was created, through the Big Bang, there has always been discussion and questioning on what the universe was, before it was created. Was there nothing because there was no time and no God, or was there something we haven t discovered yet. Over the past decades, several scientists have theorized on life before the Big Bang, and have come up with these theories: Brane Theory, String Theory, and Inflatio...
