  • HOMEWORK'S DUE THURSDAY.
  • THAT'LL BE ALL FOR TODAY CLASS.
  • WELL . . . HOW ABOUT I COME OVER LATER TONIGHT AND HELP YOU WRITE IT? ALL THE OTHER QUESTIONS ARE EASY TO ANSWER - LIKE THE SIMILARITIES IN THE COMPOSITION OF NEBULAE, STARS, AND PLANETARY MATERIAL? - THAT'S EASY TO EXPLAIN. A NEBULA IS A INTERSTELLAR CLOUD OF DUST, HYDROGEN, HELIUM, AND OTHER "IONIED" GASES THAT FORNED SHORTLY AFTER THE BIG BANG. GRAVITY THEN FORCES THOSES ELEMENTS TOGETHER, IN A CLOUD SO DENSE THAT THE TEMPERATURE QUICKLY INCREASES, AND THE FIRST STAR IS BORN. AND THROUGHOUT THAT STARS LIFETIME, NUCLEAR FUSION CREATES NEW ELEMENTS. HOWEVER, EVENTUALLY THAT STAR DIES THROUGH A EXPLOSION KNOWN AS A "SUPERNOVA" AND ALL THE ELEMENTS THAT IT'S EVER PRODUCED IS SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE - PROVIDING IT WITH THE "BUILDING BLOCKS" NECESSARY TO CREATE NEW STARS PLANETS, ETC. IT IS A CONTINUOUS PROCESS THAT'S BEEN RE-OCCARRING, OVER AND OVER, SINCE THE BIG BANG.

  • PLUS, THE EM SPECTRUM ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF LIGHT WAVES THAT EXISTS, SUCH AS RADIO WAVES, MICROWAVES, INFRARED WAVES, VISIBLE LIGHT RAYS, ULTRAVIOLET RAYS, X-RAYS, AND GAMMA RAYS - BUT AREN'T NECESSARILY VISIBLE TO THE HUMAN EYE. EXPECT FOR VISIBLE LIGHT RAYS, OF COURSE! ANYWAYS, THE REDSHIFT OR BLUESHIFT OF AN OBJECT IS VIEWED THROUGH VISIBLE LIGHT WAVELENGTHS - WHICH IS PART OF THE EM SPECTRUM.
  • SURE YOU CAN! THE BIG BANG IS THE THEORY THAT THE UNIVERSE ORIGINATED FROM A SINGLE PIONT AND RAPIDLY EXPANDED OUTWARDS. THE LIGHT SPECTRA SUPPORTS THAT THROUGH THE REDSHIFT OF STARS AND GALAXIES, WHICH IS EVIDENCE THAT THE UNIVERSE IS, IN FACT, EXPANDING FROM A CENTRAL POINT.
  • EXPLAIN HOW THE LIGHT SPECTRA, MOTION OF GALAXIES, SIMILARITIES OF SPACE MATERIAL, SIZE OF THE UNIVERSE, AND CBR AND DARK ENERGY SUPPORT THE BIG BANG? I DON'T THINK I CAN DO IT!
  • HEY CHERYL. NORAH.
  • YEAH, BUT WHAT ABOUT . . . . OH HEY KAREN!
  • HEY KAREN!
  • WELL, I DON'T KNOW ABOUT YOU, BUT MY MONEY'S ON DARK ENERGY! 68%! HA! OL' GRAVITY DOESN'T STAND A CHANCE!
  • THE MOTION OF GALAXIES? WELL, THE BIG BANG THEORY IS SUPPORTED BY THAT THROUGH OBSERVATIONS OF FURTHER, MORE DISTANT GALAXIES MOVING AWAY FROM THE MILKY WAY. AND THAT, OF COURSE, IS OBSERVED THROUGH THE GALAXIES "SHIFT COLOR" AND THE EM SPECTRUM .
  • UGH. IT'S ALL SO CONFUSING. THERE'S NO WAY I'LL HAVE THAT PAPER DONE BY THURSDAY!
  • OH! AND DON'T FORGET ABOUT CBR AND DARK ENERGY! IT SUPPORTS THE BIG BANG THEORY BECAUSE CBR IS RADIATION THAT'S BEEN EVENLY DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE UNIVERSE SINCE THE INTIAL MOMENT OF THE BIG BANG. AND IN ORDER FOR IT TO HAVE BEEN EVENLY DISTRIBUTED, THAN IT HAD TO HAVE ORIGINATED FROM A SINGLE LOCATION.
  • OK. THAT IS A LOT OF INFO TO TAKE IN, BUT I THINK I'M STARTING TO UNDERSTAND IT. THE EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE ALSO SUPPORTS THE BIG BANG THEORY TOO. AND DON'T SCIENTIST STUDY THE EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE THROUGH TYPE IA SUPERNOVAE?
  • TRUE! AND DARK ENERGY ALSO SUPPORTS THE BIG BANG THEORY BECAUSE IT IS THE FORCE PROPELLING THE EXPANSION OF THE UNIVERSE. DARK ENERGY IS BASICALLY "ANTI-GRAVITY" IN THE FACT THAT IT PUSHES, WHEREAS GRAVITY PULLS. IT'S A DEADLY COSMIC GAME OF TUG-OF-WAR; BETWEEN DARK ENERGY AND GRAVITY - AND THE WINNER OF THE GAME DETERMINES THE FATE OF THE UNIVERSE. ITS SAID THAT ROUGHLY 68% OF THE UNIVERSE IS DARK ENERGY.
  • YES. BY MEASURING THE REDSHIFT FROM THE LIGHT OF THE EXPLOSION WITH THE EM SPECTRUM, SCIENTISTS ARE ABLE TO DETERMINE HOW MUCH THE UNIVERSE HAS EXPANDED SINCE THE BIG BANG AND "PIECE TOGETHER THE HISTORY OF THE FAST-EXPANDING UNIVERSE.
  • THE BIG CRUNCH? WHAT KIND OF NAME IS THAT? SOUNDS LIKE A SLOGAN FOR A HONEY BUNCHES OF OATS COMMERCIAL!
  • I AGREE. THE FAVOR IS IN THAT OF DARK ENERGY'S. AND AS OF NOW, THERE ARE THREE PREDICTED ENDINGS TO THE UNIVERSE. THE BIG FREEZE, THE BIG RIP, AND THE BIG CRUNCH. AND IN ONLY ONE SCENARIO DOES GRAVITY WIN - AND THAT IS IN THE BIG CRUNCH. IT IS ALSO THE ONLY SCENARIO WHICH OFFERS THE UNIVERSE A POSSIBLE FUTURE. SO I HOPE THE UNIVERSE ENDS WITH A BIG "CRUNCH!"
