There is something very strange happens in space – something that should not be possible. It’s as if large parts of the world are being ravaged by a huge and invisible celestial vacuum. Sasha Kaslinsky, the scientist who discovered the phenomenon, is understandably nervous: “We left very upset and nervous,” he says, “because this is not something we planned to find.”The accidental discovery of what is disturbing is called “dark flow” not only has implications for the fate of a large number of galaxies – it also means that a large number of scientists would have to find a new way of understanding the universe. Dark flow is the latest in a long series of events that have threatened to rewrite the textbooks. Do you announce a new era of understanding, or which simply means that everything we know about the universe is wrong?14 billion years there was nothing; then everything exploded into existence and the universe was born, but a new generation of cosmologists are challenging this theory. Cosmologists have built a replica of the universe through the use of equations, is called the standard model of cosmology and is the reason behind the Big Bang theory, however, this model is not in doubt. The theory of Professor Alan Guth challenges Big Bang, saying that the universe started small, allowing the temperature everywhere, even before large-scale expansion.Stars closer to the edge of a galaxy is moving as fast as the center. This cosmologists think that the gravity necessary galaxies, but the only way to get more serious was to create it. Astrophysicist Dan Bauer is hunting for dark matter half a mile in the dark plains of Minnesota in order to locate and record more effectively. The discovery that the universe is accelerating, suggests that a new force is capable of powering the universe. This force is called dark energy, and cosmologists have no idea what it is.The combination of the question of the standard model, inflation and the darkness has given way to a new theory called the dark flow. The nature of this theory could prove that our universe is not unique. The standard model of cosmology has endured much criticism, therefore, the stronger the theory, however, still could be completely wrong.

Having explored the wonders of the solar system, Professor Brian Cox boldly steps an even bigger stage – the universe. Who are we? Where do we come? For thousands of years mankind has turned to religion and the myth of the answers to these enduring questions. But in this series, Brian has a different set of answers – answers of science.Stardust. At the second stop in his exploration of the wonders of the universe, Professor Brian Cox goes in search of the essence of humanity to respond to the most important questions of all: what are we? Where did we come from? This film is the story of matter – the material they’re made of.The Fall. In the third episode, Professor Brian Cox in the history of the force that shapes the entire universe – gravity. Gravity seems so familiar, and yet it is a strange and striking forces in the universe. From a zero gravity flight, Brian experienced the feeling of weightlessness total, and considers that the amount of density effect has had on the world around us.Messengers. In the last episode of the epic Professor Brian Cox across the universe, he travels from the Burgess Shale fossils in the sands of the world’s oldest desert to show how light is the key to our understanding of the entire universe, including our own deepest origins.

A BBC documentary reveals for the first time, the original manuscript where Newton forecasting doomsday date. Newton, the father of modern mathematics, has devoted much of his life to the quest to decode the Bible which he believes is the word of God. For over 50 years, studied the Bible trying to unravel God’s secret laws of the universe.He was fanatical in his quest to discover the date of the second coming of Christ and the end of the world. Scholars have spent years trying to unravel the writings of Newton on the Book of Revelation to establish when I thought the apocalypse was near.For the first time, Newton: The Dark Heretic reveals the projected date in the lives of many people – 2060.The BBC had infrequent access to Newton’s original manuscripts in Hebrew National Library in Jerusalem. Buried in his papers, Dr. Stephen Snobelen, University of King’s College in Nova Scotia, which is the original document where Newton had written his prediction. In 2060, Newton believed that the dramatic events planned in the apocalyptic book of Revelation would occur: the plagues and massive fires, the terrible battle of Armageddon between good and evil and destruction and eternal damnation of the wicked.Producer Neaum Malcolm says: “Newton prayed daily for the end of the world that he believed that announce the second coming of Christ. This may mark the beginning in 1000, the rule of the saints and Newton believed that then take place as San boss."

The universe has always existed? How did a place that could harbor life? NOVA presents some startling new answers in Origins, a new series of 4 parts. New clues from the frontiers of science are presented by astrophysicist Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson. As the host of Origins, Tyson leads viewers on a journey to the beginning of time and deep space in search of the first movements of life and its traces on other worlds. The documentary is very scientific, taking into account all options / possibilities as possible. Everything is well done. Just when you think you are going to jump from one idea or just a hint that they do a good job addressing the issue. Topics include: How the Earth was formed, how common is a planet like Earth, the search for extra-solar planets, the chemistry of life, the formation of molecules of life, big bang theory, cosmic microwave background and more?. If you like documentaries about the origins of life and space, then this is a chance that you will enjoy. I strongly urge all members of “”Planet Earth”" for a couple of hours of entertainment and information to understand what we know today about the origin of the Earth. Even if you disagree, which gives an idea of what consensis popular in the scientific community today.

Where did everything come from? How did it all begin, the universe and everything? Easy. There was a big bang, 13.7bn years ago, since when the universe has been expanding, right? Well, that used to be correct. But now a bunch of pointy heads are beginning to question this, and Horizon: What Happened Before the Big Bang? attempts to put their thinking across in a way that might make some sense to those of us whose heads are less pointy.

A documentary that explores how humanity came to understand the universe and its origins in the Big Bang.Since the first people who looked at the sky and wondered about the nature of modern physicists like Einstein, Gamow, Alpher and Guth.The universe began with a massive expansion, billions of years ago and continues to grow with each passing second.The idea that the very existence of the universe and of man, began with a “Big Bang” is no longer a topic of debate among most scientists – which is essentially taken as fact.

"Four-part series on the history of mathematics, presented by Oxford professor Marcus du Sautoy.In the first episode, the language of the universe, after showing how mathematics is fundamental to our lives, du Sautoy explores the mathematics of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece. In Egypt, discloses the use of a decimal system based on the ten fingers, whereas in the former Mesopotamia he discovers that the way that the current time system based on the Babylonian Base 60 number. In Greece, is seen in the contributions of some of the giants of mathematics as Plato, Euclid, Archimedes and Pythagoras, who is credited with the beginning of the transformation of mathematics from a tool to count on the topic of discussion today we know .The second episode, the genius of the Orient, du Sautoy looks out of the ancient world. When ancient Greece fell into decline, mathematical progress stagnated as Europe entered the Middle Ages, but in the East mathematics reached new heights. Du Sautoy visits China and explores how maths helped build imperial China and was at the center of such feats of engineering as the Great Wall. In India, he discovers how the symbol of the number zero was invented and Indian mathematicians ‘understanding’ of the new concepts of infinity and negative numbers. In the Middle East, which looks at the invention of the new language of algebra and the spread of knowledge from East to West through mathematicians such as Leonardo Fibonacci, creator of the Fibonacci series.The frontiers of space. In the 17th century, Europe had taken over the Middle East as the world powerhouse of mathematical ideas. There was considerable progress in understanding the geometry of objects fixed in time and space. The race was now on to discover the mathematics to describe objects in motion. In the third part of the series, Marcus du Sautoy explores the work of René Descartes and Pierre de Fermat, whose famous Last Theorem of mathematical puzzles for over 350 years. It also examines the development of Isaac Newton’s calculus, and goes in search of Leonard Euler, the father of topology or “geometry articulated and Carl Friedrich Gauss, who, at age 24, was responsible for inventing a new way of handling equations: modular arithmetic.The fourth episode, to infinity and beyond, concludes the series. After exploring Georg Cantor’s work on infinity and Henri Poincare’s work on chaos theory, discusses how mathematics was in chaos by the discoveries of Kurt Gödel, who demonstrated that the unknown is an integral part of mathematics, and Paul Cohen, who established that there are several different types of mathematics in which conflicting answers to the same question were possible. He concludes his trip taking into account the great unsolved problems of mathematics today, including the Riemann Hypothesis, a conjecture about the distribution of prime numbers. A prize of one million dollars and a place in the history books await anyone who can prove Riemann’s theorem.

Every cosmologist and astronomer agrees: our universe is 13.7 billion years. Using cutting edge technology, scientists are now able to take a snapshot of the universe only a heartbeat after birth.Armed with hypersensitivity satellites, astronomers look back in time to the moment of creation, when all matter in the universe exploded into existence. This is where we discovered an unsolved mystery as old as time itself – if the universe was born, where did it come from? Meet leading scientists who have discovered what they believe that the origin of our universe, and a window in the time before time.Big Bang theory holds that the universe was once packed tightly in a small and incredibly dense space, known as a “singularity”. That is, until about 13.7 billion years, when a huge explosion of energy and the pressure began to give rise to entire worlds, galaxies and interstellar particles that form the universe as we know it today.However, what caused the big bang? The physicists are left scratching their heads to that question. Since the universe began in a level so small, the laws of relativity are not fully implemented. In contrast, quantum theory, which deals with the world outside the law and the very small strange, must also be convened.Successfully answering the question of what existed before the Big Bang would be necessary to close the gap between the worlds so far incompatible with each other, relativism and quantum mechanics. But even though the bridge has not yet been built, theories abound.“Our universe may have either come into existence or collided with another universe,” theoretical physicist Michio Kaku said scienceline.org. “Big Bangs happen all the time.”This is the fourth episode. See the list of all the episodes here: through the hole.

The discovery that everything is made of atoms has been called the biggest scientific breakthrough in history. As scientists delved into the atom, which broke the shocking secrets of nature and abandoned traditional beliefs, leading to an entirely new science still holds the modern physics, chemistry and biology, and perhaps even life itself. Nuclear physicist Professor Jim Al-Khalili tells the story of this discovery and the brilliant minds behind the breakthrough.The second part of three parts, Professor Jim Al-Khalili documentary about the basic building block of our universe, the atom. The author shows how, in our quest to understand the tiny atom, unraveled the mystery of how the universe was created – a story with dramatic twists and turns, taking in the world of innovative discoveries like radioactivity, the atomic bomb and Big Bang, as the main brains of the 20th century competed to answer the biggest questions of all.The final part of the documentary series Professor Jim Al-Khalili of the basic building block of our universe, the atom. Explore how the study of the atom forced us to rethink the nature of reality itself, discovers how there could be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist and finds out that “empty” space is not empty at all. Al-Khalili shows how the world we think we know turns out to be a small part of a universe infinitely rarer than might have conceived.

“Adapted from a provocative book by Brian Greene, this film very exciting – which originally aired on PBS NOVA in three parts – the attempts to explain the controversial string theory, a complicated scientific proposal, in short, offers a unique explanation for many the mysteries of his universe. As affable as an intellectual who is likely to find, Greene involves a number of physicists in their analysis of string theory, which in part is mixed theory of relativity of Einstein with the complex laws governing quantum mechanics. Despite mind-numbing technical terms kept to a minimum, those of us not familiar with advanced physics may feel a bit lost at times.However, the issue is certainly fascinating, and some conclusions are nothing short of amazing: a reasoned opinion, the professional discussion of a universe that encompasses 11 different dimensions undoubtedly called Johnny Carson “”I did not know”" to mind.In a way reminiscent of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos series, The Elegant Universe is even more difficult to get a handle on. But the effort is rewarding, especially when you are looking for a way to melt the ice at parties … (Barnes & Noble)Brian Greene’s Homepage

All that is about to read here seems impossible and insane, beyond science fiction. However, all true.Scientists now believe that can really be a parallel universe – in fact, may be an infinite number of parallel universes, and we live in one of them.These other universes contain forms of space, time and strange exotic matter. Some of them may even contain a slightly different way.Surprisingly, scientists believe that these parallel universes exist less than a millimeter away from us. In fact, our gravity is only a weak signal coming out of another universe into ours.

This guy was deeply plugged into the machinery of the universe, to an extent no-one has since been. His entire life revolved around maths. If he were alive today he would be diagnosed with aspergers, but he had fully productive aspergers.He was quite eccentric, and never really owned his own house, he made most of his money by placing bets on mathematical problems with his friends, travelled the world all his life flying from university to university, and gave out awards for people who solved hard mathematical problems he set them.A curious fact about Paul is that he was a daily user of amphetamine in his later years. After his mother's death in 1971, Erdös became quite depressed. His physician prescribed amphetamines. Erdös took Benzedrine or Ritalin almost every day for the last twenty five years of his life. Sometimes he took both. Long-term use of amphetamines often exacerbates depression. When used chronically, too, amphetamines usually induce stereotyped thought and behaviour rather than creativity. But Paul Erdös seems to be an exception.He felt living on speed helped him to create maths. At an age when most mathematicians have long since burnt out, his output was certainly prodigious. Strong dopaminergic drugs also tend to provoke or exacerbate obsessive-compulsive behaviour. Here their effect on Erdös may be more typical. Erdös hated to be touched; and he washed his hands some 50 times a day.Colleagues worried that Erdös might have become addicted. In 1979, he accepted a $500 bet from his friend Ronald Graham. Graham challenged Erdös to abstain from speed for 30 days. Erdös met the challenge, but his output sank dramatically. Erdös felt the progress of mathematics had been held up by a stupid wager. In an article by Paul Hoffman published in November 1987, Atlantic Monthly profiled Erdös and discussed his Benzedrine habit. Erdös liked the article, "except for one thing...You shouldn't have mentioned the stuff about Benzedrine. It's not that you got it wrong. It's just that I don't want kids who are thinking about going into mathematics to think that they have to take drugs to succeed."

A stellar explosion, the supernova is the sensational death of a star. Can shine as bright as 100 billion Suns and radiate as much energy as the Sun emits more than 10 million years.Jets of high-energy light and matter are propelled into space and cause enormous bursts of gamma rays and emit intense X-ray radiation for thousands of years.Astronomers believe this process creates the same building blocks of planets, people and plants. Meet the world’s leading supernova hunters, and take a look at recorded supernovas throughout history.

"Grey aliens are the most common creatures imagined while talking about the other life existance. Nobody knows whether they exist or not but the speculations and theories prove that this kind of alien creatures are most likely to occur anywhere in the universe. More than a half reported alien incidents include sightings of the famous Grey aliens. Greys are typically depicted as dark grey-skinned diminutive humanoid beings that possess reduced forms of, or completely lack, external human organs such as noses, ears or sex organs. Abduction by these alien type creatures claim to be extremely traumatic, similar to an abduction by humans or even a sexual assault in the level of trauma and distress."

If the academic tone and depth historical fact that Cosmos miniseries science similar to National Geographic magazine, then Hyperspace is like the National Enquirer.Each episode centers around a dramatic question (Will asteroid destroy Earth? Could a black hole sucking our sun?) Discussed with slick computer-generated eye candy, but a little less content, for example, an episode holds that humans need to colonize other planets, because the sun will one day expand and burn the earth to ashes, but never mentions that the expansion of the sun is not going to happen over millions of years.However, the hyperspace are a variety of interesting ideas and may prompt viewers to learn more. The graphics are beautiful, Sam Neill host an intelligence projects interesting, and you have to love a TV show that treats scientists like rock stars. Young fans of science fiction will enjoy immensely.1. Star stuff. Come on a journey a journey like no other, a journey into the depths of the universe. Look toward the night sky, what you see? The planets, stars, a million points of light. His look at their universe. This show will take you there. You will experience firsthand the wonders of the universe. His power and the danger is and take a closer look will bring even space to Earth. Search for extraterrestrial life, witness the birth of new worlds and I discovered what happens in the spatial effects of all of us here in the small planet we call home.2. Staying Alive. Take a ride on the planet Earth is a wonderful place. But do not take for granted, because one day you might just disappear forever. This is the story of the universe in which we live and the dangers we face just by being here. We will fly with the witch comets and asteroids threaten all life on our planet. Here on Earth will be recreated fall long head of our sun around the galaxy and see developed witch disaster could spell the end for us all. Our planet is in peril, our mission is to stay alive.3. Black Holes. Mankind, ignorant of this as we go about our lives without knowing that in the depths of space lurks an invisible monster. Destroyers powerful enough to destroy our Sun and leave our Earth a shattered burned ruin You are about to enter the world of Killer last of the Universe. You will be there when the monster is created in the heart of a dying star. Let’s look is, until the signs in the darkness of deep space. This is the history of energy that could one day destroy us all.4. Are we alone. We all grew up thinking if we are alone in the universe, or if one day we come face to face with an alien. This is the story of the search for extraterrestrials. ET does not exist in reality. Go on a journey to discover. Visit alien planets in search of life. Dive into the oceans of the moons away. On Earth, astronomers explore the universe for extraterrestrial life and find the answer to one of the big questions of life. Is there life on other worlds, or it could be that we are completely alone and completely?5. New Worlds. The sun, bright, powerful and life-giving. But this is the history of the sun and how one day the sun will become our enemy. If we survive, we must leave Earth. We have to find new homes and surprising new places and change from other worlds to recreate the land we left behind. In the distant future, our Sun will become a monster. It will burn throughout the life of our planet and destroy entire worlds and, finally, the sun still destroy itself. That will happen. One day our sun die and when it does we will go with him. Time to think ahead.6. Go boldly. We humans have come a long way to travel to our world in search of new lands, extends to the corner of the world forever. But now it is time to look to new destinations, go once more into the unknown. This is the story of our journey into space. We will fly to the stars on a boat navigating in the starlight. We will explore the edges away from the cosmos by taking a roller coaster ride through the very structure of our cosmos. Let’s find a machine that has mapped out the heavens like never before.

Theory of Relativity says that time travel is perfectly possible – if you go forward. Finding a way to travel back requires breaking the speed of light, which so far seems impossible. But now, strange but true phenomena like quantum non-locality, where the particles to teleport instantly across great distances, can give us a way to realize the dream of traveling back and forth through time in a reality . Enter a time machine and rewrite history, bring loved ones back to life, control our destinies.But if we succeed, what are the consequences of that freedom? Let’s get caught up in a lot of paradoxes and multiple universes that will destroy the fabric of the universe? Einstein said that nothing travels faster than the speed of light, but when physicists see how entangled particles behave, they get stuck in a mirror in which this principle does not seem right.Physicists do not fully understand entanglement, beyond which is a relationship between the particles. If you want to know what mess looks like, pull up a chair to an experiment that has occurred. Researchers at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis and the University of Geneva, shone a laser made of photons, the basic units of light in the glass. When photons hit the irregularities in the laser crystal, single photons are sometimes divided into two. These photons daughter were related to each other and their parents of photons, in the amount of energy they had.You can think about the photon father is like a train, and the glass as many potholes. When the train hit the pothole, broke into two strings of cars related to the directions and speeds. These daughter photons were not only related, but intertwined. The particles are entangled they are related to a property, but the rest randomly.This is the third episode. See the list of all the episodes here: through the hole.

Nominated for an Oscar, this 36-minute IMAX production offers a state of the art computer-generated journey through the universe, and tries to identify the role of human beings who live within its vastness.Among the topics covered a variety of the greatest scientific theories known to exist – some of which have never before been visualized on film – as well as a guided tour through the cosmos and the solar system, and a look at the nature of black holes and exploding supernovas.This offer IMAX us not one but two trips – one in space (which goes around the world of quarks) and one at the time (going from the first cells of humans).These two monumental undertaking, but unfortunately this only half-hour film can offer us a good idea. It features beautiful images, but travel itself losing much in translation to the TV screen. It is only recommended for those seeking relaxation.

They are the most powerful objects in the universe. Nothing, not even light, can escape the gravitational pull of a black hole. Astronomers now believe there are billions of them in the cosmos, engulfing the planets to the stars around the feeding frenzy of violence. A new theoretical research in the twisted reality of a black hole suggests that the three-dimensional space can be an illusion. That reality really takes place in a two-dimensional hologram on the edge of the universe.Black hole is almost as difficult to imagine how it will be detected, but some scientists have been up for the task of centuries. Cambridge scholar John Michell wrote an article in 1783 in which the hypothesis of the existence of “dark stars” – stars as big and with so much gravity that light could not escape its surface. Most astronomers of the time thought it was an absurd idea.Then in 1915, Einstein published his theory of general relativity, which provides a framework for a reinterpretation of the hypothesis Michell. A graduate Indian student by the name of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar their backs on the theories of Einstein to suggest that the stars of a certain size – much bigger than our sun – experience a catastrophic collapse at the end of his life, transforming the bodies in the cosmic vacuum’s powerful gravity could suck all light and matter in its black mouth.This is the second episode.

In June 2000, astronomers made an extraordinary discovery. That promises to solve one of the biggest problems in cosmology – how and why galaxies are created. Incredibly, the answer has to do the strangest objects, destructive and terrible in the universe – a supermassive black hole. Scientists are beginning to believe that these forces of pure destruction actually favoring the birth of galaxies and are therefore at the heart of the creation of stars, planets and life.Exactly how our galaxy was created has mystified astronomers and physicists for years. Although there have been many theories, there is little evidence to explain how the gas in the early Universe condensed to form the galaxy we see today. Now scientists realize they’ve been missing a vital ingredient – a supermassive black hole. The immense gravity of a giant black hole could cause the gas to collapse in the first place. For beating the gas around a giant black hole would result in the light of stars, planets and life itself. Despite being the most destructive thing in the universe, scientists now think our supermassive black hole could be crucial in the creation of the galaxy as we know it.The supermassive black hole in our galaxy may be the reason for our existence, but recent work suggests that it may also be our end. Currently the Earth is so far from the black hole that can affect us, but physicist John Dubinski thinks all that could change. In January 2000, graphically simulated the final fate of the galaxy. In 3 billion years we will collide with another galaxy, Andromeda. The resulting apocalypse will force the Earth and our Solar System out of orbit. Dubinski has calculated a worrying 50:50 chance that we will be sent at full speed towards the black hole at the center of this maelstrom. This would be fatal for the Earth.

Most of us are intrigued by the questions to do with the origin and evolution of the universe. Where do we come? Where do we go?These are fundamental questions. But nobody knows the answers. In recent years there have been many claims that we are finally getting a real answer.Is that the universe and all matter and energy that are created are created in a huge explosion about 15 billion years. This was the Big Bang. Most scientists agree with this, but some of us, an expert in the field, who understand that still do not really know. This is the story of a few.The astronomical theory comes to the meetings between members of an elite influence. This film gives the opportunity to hear and see, first hand, the arguments that contradict the currently accepted paradigm.Listen and reflect on how researchers dispute the findings that do not reach the media and general public. See evidence of a completely different universe. Discover along with many prominent workers in the area, what this universe is like and how it works.It is surprising that this film was given the animosity towards the alternative ideas in the field. Apparently, Meyers has become the Michael Moore documentary science!This feature presentation is a unique blend of human interest and science documentary. As the first comprehensive documentary to deal with major new approaches in non-big bang cosmologies, it reveals several deep theoretical and observational controversies. This is a fact, well hidden from university students and the general public, said with clarity and conviction, and that can lead to low fall of the theory of Big Bang presiding.The story is told by 16 world-renowned astronomers as the legendary cosmologist Sir Fred Hoyle, Geoffrey Burbidge and cosmologists controversial Halton Arp, philosopher and designer John Dobson telescope, astronomers Jack Sulentic, Jean-Claude Pecker, and Margaret Burbidge.Illustrated with 3D animation and a soundtrack symphonic exuberant, this film is a scientific and historical “must” for anyone interested in astronomy and cosmology.

From a zero gravity flight, Brian experienced the feeling of weightlessness total, and considers that the amount of density effect has had on the world around us. Messengers. In the last episode of the epic Professor Brian Cox across the universe, he travels from the Burgess Shale fossils in the sands of the world’s oldest desert to show how light is the key to our understanding of the entire universe, including our own deepest origins.

It is perhaps the biggest, most controversial mystery in the cosmos. Is our universe just came into being by chance, or was created by a God who nourishes and sustains all life?The latest science is showing that the four forces that govern our universe are phenomenally well-tuned. So finely that had led many to conclude that someone, or something, had to calibrate, a belief supported by more evidence that everything in our universe may stem from an extraordinarily elegant and beautiful design known as the Lie group E8 .While skeptics argue that these results are inconclusive and no evidence of a divine creator, and leading some physicists are proposing that this God is a foreign player that has created our world as the last game of SIM for your own amusement. It is as convincing as a disconcerting response.This is the first episode. See the list of all the episodes here: Through hole.

When you’re having fun, time flies. Waiting in a traffic jam, not really. His birthday was last month, and your mortgage payment is due within a few days.The fact that we perceive time is certainly no illusion. But is it really there, or is something we’ve invented?At the beginning of human history, we decided to start measuring the days and weeks, and finally, hours, minutes and seconds. The weather was helpful in organizing society, planting crops and preparing for dates. Things worked fine until scientists began Exit all.In the 17th century, English scientist Isaac Newton was pretty sure that the time was a universal constant. But in 1908, Hermann Minkowski, the expansion in one of Einstein’s ideas about the relationship between space and time, suggests a space-time continuum. This theory held that space and time are closely mixed, with all events occurring along the same timeline. Einstein presented his theory of general relativity, not long after this, and suggested that time is an illusion.Almost at the same time (if you believe that in time, that is), the field of quantum mechanics arose from an effort to explain the relationship between matter and energy. This presents a small problem for scientists trying to create a unified theory to explain the universe and its components. Quantum mechanics requires the existence of time to work. General relativity is not so. List of all episodes here: through the hole.

From the ancient Greeks first speculated that everything we observe in reality was the result of the interaction of tiny particles called atoms that great thinkers have tried to find a mathematical formula that governs and explains the workings of the universe.So far, however, even such brilliant minds as Albert Einstein and physicists Stephen Hawking have been unable to reach that large of all single equation, also known as the theory of everything, or the final theory. However, keep trying, because without the final piece of the puzzle that is reality, the sum total of what we know is a little short to make sense.Perhaps the most famous form of the equation of all that was the physicist Albert Einstein, who spent the last 35 years of his life trying to find a general explanation. Einstein’s theory of general relativity, published in 1916, explained gravity, one of the great forces of the universe, as the curvature of spacetime by matter. But general relativity does not explain electromagnetism, the other major force that is more powerful than gravity.Einstein was not willing to accept that these two forces had no relationship, and sought a single explanation – a unified field theory – showing how electromagnetism, gravity and spacetime interact. I see in Nature a magnificent structure that must fill a thinking person with a sense of humility, once explained. But despite a series of articles published on his ideas about unified field theory, who died in 1955 without resolving the problem to the satisfaction of other theorists.

In a crystalline night, on vacation, perhaps, how often contemplates the night sky and promise to learn from the stars and constellations? Somehow, we never round to it. Letters in newspapers seems too complicated. Astronomical manuals are equally daunting.Observation of the stars is the answer – the night sky simple and beautiful map, a star atlas animation works from anywhere in the world. Season by season, signs and explains. Little by little – like learning a language – the cosmos is comprehensible.Observation of bright stars is a reference work that will last and last. Animated vignettes turn points of light – stars, nebulae, galaxies – into supernovae, pulsars intermittent acute quasars and rotating swarms of 150 billion stars with supermassive black hole at its center.The sky looks from three bands of latitude – from the northern hemisphere mid-latitudes (Japan, Europe, North America), from the tropics and mid-latitude Southern Hemisphere (Australia and South America South). There is no “talking heads”, no interviews, not based on the screen.

Documentary examines the current thinking about very large numbers and infinity when it comes to mathematics and the observable universe. For the third year, most of us have learned to count. Once we know how, it seems as if there was nothing to stop us counting forever. But while the idea may seem infinite perfectly innocent, continue to count and get into a paradoxical world where nothing is what it seems. Mathematicians have discovered that there are an infinite number of infinities, each of them infinitely greater than the last. And if the universe is forever, the consequences are even more bizarre. In an infinite universe, there are an infinite number of copies of copies of Earth and infinitely many of you. Over time, larger than the universe stranger than fiction. This is the story of the infinite.

In deepest space lurks a force of almost unimaginable power. Explosions of extraordinary violence, are blasting through the Universe every day. If you hit our solar system that would destroy our Sun and all planets.For years nobody could figure out what was causing the bang. Now scientists believe they have identified the culprit. It is the most extreme object ever found in the universe, but they have dubbed a “hypernova.”The Cold War cosmology. The mystery began in 1967. A U.S. military satellite was launched to detect Soviet nuclear tests that the Pentagon secretly believe that taking place on the dark side of the moon. In contrast, the satellite picked up evidence of explosions far bigger than any bomb. Something that emit bursts of gamma rays – the deadliest form of energy known – on a massive scale. What’s worse, these blasts just kept coming.Breaking the law. For decades scientists were baffled. Especially worrying is the evidence that these bursts could be coming from the farthest reaches of the universe, billions of light years away. If so, then for we see on Earth that had to be on a scale that was beyond our comprehension. According to some, these explosions were so big you could even violate the most sacred law of all science: Einstein’s famous equation on the mass and energy, E = mc ². Unless the law supports our understanding of how our universe nothing works.Live fast, die young. It was not until 1997, when a satellite pinpointed the exact location of these explosions, that scientists began to solve the puzzle. It appears that these huge explosions are caused by the death throes of stars twenty times the size of our Sun, that burn and explode, creating hypernova. So, what developed was a chain of events that ultimately point to some of the most exotic wonders of the Universe: stellar nurseries (where new stars are born) and black holes.Observations show that – instead of disappearing as an explosion might be expected to – radiation continues to leave the area of a hypernova. This issue is a constant feature of the process of star birth. Astronomers conclude that the hypernova grows rapidly along with other normal stars in a nursery, but burns when his contemporaries are still in their infancy.Pointing to the past. Find a hypernova, therefore, also have traced a part of space where stellar synthesis is underway. So some scientists now believe that large hypernova explosions may be the key to open one of the great unsolved mysteries in the universe: how the first stars were made at the dawn of time.

Series in which the mathematician Marcus du Sautoy explores the stories of some of the best known scientific diagrams.Vitruvian Man – looks at the world famous Leonardo da Vinci’s diagram of the perfect human body, which has many layers of anatomy of architecture, and defines our species like no other before or after drawing.The Vitruvian Man, produced in the 1480s when he lived and worked in Milan, has become one of the world’s most famous images.Leonardo’s drawings form a vast work, covering every conceivable topic in spectacular detail: from the feet, hands, skulls and muscles and tendons, heart and lungs to buildings, bridges and flying machines.Copernicus – The Polish priest and astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus developed his extraordinary theory of a universe centered on the sun 500 years, was flying in the face of science and religion. Humanity had believed for thousands of years the Earth was the center of the cosmos, and not according to the risk was ridicule and accusations of heresy.Newton’s Prism – A mid-1660s, Isaac Newton bought a pair of prisms in a show near Cambridge, which would be the basis of a series of experiments have unlocked a secret that had occupied scientists for centuries – the nature of light itself.To explain what he had done, Newton created a diagram. The experiment is called an image is crucial and fundamental in the history of science, a time chart when the ancient world was overturned by modern science. Newton showed that white light is not pure, but made up of a number of different colors, the colors of the rainbow.Florence Nightingale – Can a plot to save lives? Florence Nightingale is best known as the Lady of the Lamp, who cared for thousands of soldiers in atrocious conditions during the Crimean War of 1854-6. What is less known is that he was an exceptional statesman, and the first to use a statistical graph as a call to action.After the war, Nightingale wrote a report on the passion of the soldiers had died in such large numbers and revealed the astonishing fact that 18,000 deaths, 16,000 were caused by infectious diseases in the hospital rather than battle wounds .

It is common theory that the universe began with the Big Bang 13.7 billion years.However, as you can only see as far as light has traveled in that time, it can actually make the edge of the universe. Could it be that the universe is infinite? Is there any way to find out what the shape of the universe really is? Can we find the edge, to discover what might lie beyond it, and maybe even discover a universe next to ours?With the exception of mathematicians and physicists, most people do not like infinity. We like to know the extent of things. We can wrap your head around the measurements. Your car can be 10 feet long, home is 2,000 square meters, the U.S. national debt is … Well, some things are more limited than others.But what about our universe? It’s great. How big and how it is consumed much of the debate in the world of cosmology. Calling our universe is important because most accepted theory today in the cosmos, string theory says ours is not just a bubble of space-time between an infinite army of other parallel universes and bubbly. They call this a multiverse intelligently, and is more complex than most people will want to know. List of all episodes here: through the hole.

Growing Up in the Universe was a series of lectures given by Richard Dawkins in the framework of the Conference of the Royal Institution Christmas, in which he talked about the evolution of life in the universe. The lectures were first broadcast in 1991, in the form of five one-hour episodes.To begin the one hand, Dawkins explains the amazing capabilities of the human body and contrasts with the limited capabilities of computers and other machines made by man. He uses a small totem pole (used in ancestor worship) to illustrate the importance of studying our ancestors to understand how we evolved.Dawkins’ second lecture series examines the design problem. It presents the public a series of simple objects such as rocks and crystals, and notes that these objects have been formed by simple laws of physics and therefore is not designed.Dawkins begins the third conference that come with a walking stick in hand. He describes in detail how much a being imitates its surroundings, is almost like a key fits a lock. Below is another insect, ie, a leaf insect, which basically looks exactly like a dead leaf.Dawkins begins the fourth conference to tell the story of a girl asking “I thought flowers ‘for’.” His answer is anthropocentric, that the flowers are there for our benefit. Dawkins says many people throughout history have thought that the natural world exists for our benefit, with examples from Genesis and other literature.

Only a man with a brain the size of Stephen Hawking seriously the challenge of answering the question: How did the universe begin? in less than 30 minutes, while intended for the general population.Conference Hawking is a master class in the conciseness and clarity of thought. It rotates through the history of thought on the subject, beginning with a view of biblical principles that the world was created by God around 6,000 years ago. And it was not the only theory dreamed cockamanie the following millennia. Until the 20th century, the dominant thinking considers the universe as eternal, static extension that has no beginning or end, and where, as Hawking is, “nothing exciting ever happened.”Hawking himself, of course, has been instrumental in overturning many of the proposals on the false origin and development of the universe, refute (in his doctoral thesis, for the love of God), the “rebound” theory, which proposes that the universe expanded and contracted in time infinitely.And his work with Gary Gibbons in the 1970′s and early 1980 ran a viable mechanism that explains why the universe is “lumpy” of galaxies, instead of uniformly distributed matter through. “It was a problem I thought I would answer,” says Hawking. An authority to talk about what they know to the general public?

Astronomers are closing in on the evidence that has sought for years that one of the most destructive objects in the universe – a supermassive black hole – is lurking in the center of our galaxy. Could explode and consume our galactic neighborhood?NOVA brings us to an amazing investigation into one of the most bizarre corners of cosmological science: black hole research.From horizon to the singularity of events, secrets hard to a supermassive black hole is revealed through stunning computer generated images, including a simulation extraordinary it might seem to fall into the belly of the beast that devours everything.The space itself is falling inside the black hole. It’s more like a river falling over a waterfall. It’s like, except it is space itself that is falling off the cliff. There is a place where space begins to move faster than light, so light is trying to get out. It’s like a kayaker, trying to make their way upstream in a river that is too fast. They were dragged to the center of the black hole.

With the help of massive machines called particle accelerators, scientists studied the subatomic realm and made discoveries about the forces that operate at that level. But the search for a full explanation continues.In particular, physicists have tried to find a way to reconcile Einstein’s model of space-time, which seems to work best when applied to large objects like stars and galaxies, and the theory of quantum mechanics, which provides an explanation of electromagnetic and nuclear forces to make sense of reality to the smallest level.In recent years, some have proposed a new solution called string theory, in which tiny particles are loops that vibrate like violin strings in a multidimensional space.In the mathematical calculations that make string theory, gravity is a byproduct of the process. While string theory offers a possible solution to the ultimate question of the ages, there is a problem: Scientists have not yet found a way to test the theory experimentally to demonstrate that it is just a smart idea.

"You've probably heard about the existence of water on Mars. But what does this actually mean? Is there a slight chance of unknown life on mars that lived million or even a billion years ago? This kind of possibility has fuelled man's quest to visit the Red Planet. Man's attempts to reach Mars have pushed technological boundaries past their limit and raised the prospect of establishing human colonies beyond our own planet.Horizon has explored how scientists believe the only way to truly understand Mars is to send people there. If and when we do, it will be the most challenging trip humanity has ever undertaken."
