Galaxies are vast assemblages of stars, gas, and dust.
And viewers experience these majestic cities of stars on a movie screen as tall as a five-story building. The film opens with looming images of two mature galaxies that are relatively nearby Earth, and then pans through the vibrant and diverse panorama of thousands of galaxies in the GOODS mosaic. The ensuing 3-D journey through these galaxies provides more than just a new perspective in space, it also takes the audience back in time.
Big Bang Triumphant (Cosmology: Ideas)
Because light takes time to cross space, the galaxies farther away from Earth are seen further back in cosmic history. The virtual voyage reveals galaxies as they appeared billions of years ago, when they were still in the process of forming.
Distribution to several dozen other large-format theaters will occur over the coming months and years. The observations with the Advanced Camera for Surveys, one of the largest Hubble projects ever, provided deep images of a small patch of sky covering about one-third of the projected area of the full moon. Description In a brilliant flash about fourteen billion years ago, time and matter were born in a single instant of creation.
An immensely hot and dense universe began its rapid expansion everywhere, creating space where there was no space and time where there was no time. In the intense fire just after the beginning, the lightest elements were forged, later to form primordial clouds that eventually evolved into galaxies, stars, and planets.
This evolution is the story told in this fascinating book. Interwoven with the storyline are short pieces on the pioneering men and women who revealed those wonders to us. Product details Format Paperback pages Dimensions Review quote "This is a book with a soul -- a strange compliment for a non-fiction presentation on the physics of our universe. The author is familiar with the subject from his own work. Yet he knows how to present the breathtaking discoveries to the educated layman in a grand overview from the quarks to the Universe.
Even physicists who work in other fields may benefit from the book. The stories about how some of the facts were unraveled, read like a detective story. But unlike many other books on the same subject, the author, who has been a lifelong researcher, succeeds to convey the feeling of personal attachment, which develops between the researcher and the object of his research.stuntmomfilm.com/uploads/outagamie/5239-scv-smog.php
