We go about our daily lives understanding almost nothing of the world. We give little thought to the machinery that generates the sunlight, that makes life possible; To the gravity that glues us to an earth that would otherwise send us spinning off into space, Or to the atoms of which we are made and on whose stability we fundamentally depend. Few of us spend much time wondering why nature is the way it is, Where the cosmos came from, Or whether it was always here. If time will one day flow backward, Or whether there are ultimate limits to what humans can know. And why there is a universe. . . . . #thatsdeepbro #philsopher #thoughts #lost #perspective #mustread #carlsagan #wisewords #wiseman #quote #excerpt #foodforthought #deep #life #meaning #mindful #introspection #contemplating #insight #into #mymind #marvelous

From Wikipedia: In physics, string theory is a theoretical framework in which the point-like particles of particle physics are replaced by one-dimensional objects called strings. It describes how these strings propagate through space and interact with each other. On distance scales larger than the string scale, a string looks just like an ordinary particle, with its mass, charge, and other properties determined by the vibrational state of the string. In string theory, one of the many vibrational states of the string corresponds to the graviton, a quantum mechanical particle that carries gravitational force. Thus string theory is a theory of quantum gravity. String theory is a broad and varied subject that attempts to address a number of deep questions of fundamental physics. String theory has been applied to a variety of problems in black hole physics, early universe cosmology, nuclear physics, and condensed matter physics, and it has stimulated a number of major developments in pure mathematics. Because string theory potentially provides a unified description of gravity and particle physics, it is a candidate for a theory of everything, a self-contained mathematical model that describes all fundamental forces and forms of matter. Despite much work on these problems, it is not known to what extent string theory describes the real world or how much freedom the theory allows in the choice of its details. #astrophysics #quantumphysics #quantummechanics #stringtheory #cosmology #astronomy #science #nerd #geek #bigbang #bigbangtheory #nikolatesla #stephenhawking #alberteinstein #carlsagan #isaacnewton #neildegrassetyson #elonmusk #michiokaku #briangreene #cosmos #theoryofrelativity #specialrelativity #blackholes #multiverse #godparticle #higgsfield #higgs
Dark matter is a hypothetical form of matter that is thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the universe, and about a quarter of its total energy density. The majority of dark matter is thought to be non-baryonic in nature, possibly being composed of some as-yet undiscovered subatomic particles. The primary evidence for dark matter is that calculations show that many galaxies would fly apart instead of rotating, or would not have formed or move as they do, if they did not contain a large amount of unseen matter. #astrophysics #quantumphysics #quantummechanics #stringtheory #cosmology #astronomy #science #nerd #geek #bigbang #bigbangtheory #nikolatesla #stephenhawking #alberteinstein #carlsagan #isaacnewton #neildegrassetyson #elonmusk #michiokaku #briangreene #cosmos #theoryofrelativity #specialrelativity #blackholes #multiverse #godparticle #higgsfield #higgs
Just read the 2nd picture even if its a lot of words, it will inspire some crazy ideas to those who can see its grandeur . So what is, the highest #frequency a person could vibrate at? Isnt it interesting how the wall is vibrating, but we see it as still? #perception is interesting . #QuestionEverything you space nuggets - @4am_curiosity 💀✡

Neptune has a very thin collection of rings. They are likely made up of ice particles mixed with dust grains and possibly coated with a carbon-based substance. Only one spacecraft has flown by Neptune. In 1989, the Voyager 2 spacecraft swept past the planet. It returned the first close-up images of the Neptune system. The NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope has also studied this planet, as have a number of ground-based telescopes.

Do you know we can only see about 2000 stars on a very dark night, yet it is estimated that there are over 1 trillion stars in the Milky Way alone. I have always been intrigued with stars and the night sky. How beautiful to realize we are all a part of this big wonderous universe. Our energy released back one day into infinity. We are stardust, we are golden... 💙Lorelei 💪👊 #lorelei #lorelei_fitforlife #fitforlife #healthy #healthylifestyle #fit #fitchick #fitness #everydaywarrior #sunrise #run #runner #running #lakesuperior #duluthmn #visitduluth #redsky #stars #stargazing #stardust #wearestardust #star #quotesaofintastagram #beauty #nature_perfection #quotesaboutlife #carlsagan #dawn
Yo te observo y ese Es el sentimiento mas indescriptible que siente Mi corazón. En este vasto universo estas tu""como una palida estrella a lo lejos, como una pequeña flor En primavera, entre miles de millones de galaxias e ideas estoy yo, perdido con la mirada fija en una tenue luz.. La historia es como una estrella fugaz, como un beso Nadie recordara nuestro nombre despues que la vida, cierre mis ojos y me pierda la oportunida de volverte a ver.. Yo te observo y mi silencio guarda el mas grande sentimiento que no deja de Crecer, cada dia cada noche. Estoy apunto de morir de amor Es un extasis saber que no te amo en vano.. Morir de amor significa que ya no soy yo "" quien te ama, es el universo mismo asi de grande, es el amor atrapado en un cuerpo, yo solo soy el reflejo de todo el amor que te mereces....🌹..... #eluniverso #theuniverse #poem #poesia #carlsagan #allanwatts #love #amor

(The Milky Way Galaxy is one of billions, perhaps hundreds of billions of galaxies notable neither in mass nor in brightness nor in how its stars are configured and arrayed. Some modern deep sky photographs show more galaxies beyond the Milky Way than stars within the Milky Way. Every one of them is an island universe containing perhaps a hundred billion suns. Such an image is a profound sermon on humility.) Celebrating @cosmic__perspective 1st anniversary. I was inspired by the account and I thought to recreate this video. The title says it all about our perspective on the universe. Thank you for supporting. I hope you keep posting. Thank you for humility. #CarlSagan #CosmicPerspective #PaleBlueDot #Science #Cosmos #Stars #Space #Universe #MilkyWay #Astronomy #Astrophysics #Cosmology ◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾◾ Yüz milyarlarca gökada (galaksi),her bir gökada da yüz milyarlarca yıldız ve her yıldızın yörüngesinde dolanan onlarca gezegen.

Mira ese pequeño punto azul... Eso es aquí. Eso es nuestro hogar. Eso somos nosotros. Ahí ha vivido todo aquel de quien hayas oído hablar alguna vez, todos los seres humanos que han existido. La suma de todas nuestras alegrías y sufrimientos, miles de religiones seguras de sí mismas, ideologías y doctrinas económicas, cada cazador y recolector, cada héroe y cada cobarde, cada creador y destructor de civilizaciones, cada rey y cada campesino, cada joven pareja enamorada, cada niño esperanzado, cada madre y cada padre, cada inventor y explorador, cada maestro moral, cada político corrupto, cada “superestrella”, cada “líder supremo”, cada santo y cada pecador en la historia de nuestra especie vivió ahí – en una mota de polvo suspendida en un rayo de sol. La Tierra es un escenario muy pequeño en la vasta arena cósmica. Piensa en los ríos de sangre vertida por todos esos generales y emperadores, para que, en gloria y triunfo, pudieran convertirse en amos momentáneos de una fracción de un punto. Piensa en las interminables crueldades cometidas por los habitantes de una esquina del punto sobre los apenas distinguibles habitantes de alguna otra esquina del punto. Cuán frecuentes sus malentendidos, cuán ávidos están de matarse los unos a los otros, cómo de fervientes son sus odios. Nuestras posturas, nuestra importancia imaginaria, la ilusión de que ocupamos una posición privilegiada en el Universo... Todo eso es desafiado por este punto de luz pálida. Nuestro planeta es una solitaria mancha en la gran y envolvente penumbra cósmica. En nuestra oscuridad —en toda esta vastedad—, no hay ni un indicio de que vaya a llegar ayuda desde algún otro lugar para salvarnos de nosotros mismos. La Tierra es el único mundo conocido hasta ahora que alberga vida. No hay ningún otro lugar, al menos en el futuro próximo, al cual nuestra especie pudiera migrar. Visitar, sí. Colonizar, aún no. Nos guste o no, por el momento la Tierra es donde tenemos que quedarnos... 💜 Carl Sagan #CarlSagan #cosmos #nuestroplanetatierra

One of the most illuminating books I’ve read in a while. I’ve always found the limitless body of outer space terrifying, but Carl Sagan brings its infinite reach down to a human level. He writes about the cosmos in a more common tongue and connects the stars and the galaxies to our own blood and bone. Space is still a mystery to me, but it’s less alien than I previously believed. #books #reading #cosmos #carlsagan #theuniverse

“We live on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.” —Carl Sagan It’s true—our planet is pretty small within the infinite context of the universe. And, as someone very important to me once said, that can make you feel pretty insignificant. Ah, but my friend doesn’t see it that way. He thinks our planet’s size makes everything seem pretty “manageable.” Our planet is everything we have. Every problem we have is right here on this tiny “mote of dust.” And, as my friend said, “if that’s all we’re responsible for, then I think we f-in’ got this.” 📸 10-20-2018 . . . . . #sun #sunbeam #explore #carlsagan #science #fall #sunny #autumn #october #quotes #earth #neverstopexploring #nature #naturephotography #photography #photographer #photographylover #photographylovers #hike #hiking #getoutside

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” #carlsagan #butterandfilth

Dear Carl, You are my hero. 😉😄🙏🏻🙌🏻💙🌎. #carlsagan #carlsaganquotes
WOW. Just wow. In Shadows of Our Forgotten Ancestors, Carl Sagan and his wife and editor Ann Druyan take us back to the beginning of life on this planet. Starting with one of the most expansive yet easy to understand explanations of the genesis and importance of DNA & RNA, the book moves throughout the millenia to finally examine so many of the traits and characteristics that we homo sapiens share with our primate relatives. . . Sagan was a great mind, lost far too early. Though this book was published more than 25 years ago, he clearly admonishes humanity for the destruction we have savaged on the planet and other species, and warns of our own impending doom should we not pay more attention. If it's any consolation, he was confident the planet will be just fine once we exterminate ourselves. . . A definite recommend for anyone into science or evolution, as I would for any of Sagan's books. And I'm greatly looking forward to the next season of #Cosmos , with #NDT continuing the legacy of Sagan's most viewed work. #carlsagan #anndruyan #evolutionarybiology #evolution #science #currentlyreading #bookstagram #bookreview #bibliophile #books #instabook #bookaddict #nonfiction
Two of NASA’s space telescopes, including the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR), miraculously observed a black hole’s corona “launched” away from the supermassive black hole. Then a massive pulse of X-ray energy spewed out. So, what exactly happened? That’s what scientists are trying to figure out now. “This is the first time we have been able to link the launching of the corona to a flare,” Dan Wilkins, of Saint Mary’s University, said. “This will help us understand how supermassive black holes power some of the brightest objects in the universe.” NuSTAR’s principal investigator, Fiona Harrison, noted that the nature of the energetic source is “mysterious,” but added that the ability to actually record the event should provide some clues about the black hole's size and structure, along with (hopefully) some fresh intel on how black holes function. Luckily for us, this black hole is still 324 million light-years away.
