Can somebody explain Conformal cyclic cosmology to me? My mind is full of fuck.
How can an infinitely expanded universe equal an infinitely compacted one? How does time even exist if an infinite amount of time equals a single instant and how does space even exist if an infinitely inflated universe equals a universe compacted to a single point? How does energy exist if infinite entropy is equal to zero entropy.
I was cool with the idea of a cyclical universe, but I was assuming that a big bang was just a really unlikely vacuum fluctuation that could happen during... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>7636226 Basically imagine everything you said there and assign them to dots/discs and you have an idea of what happened before space collapsed into, with about 6 more steps in between that and, time and the big bang
>>7635800 At t=0, everything is compressed in a singularity, so there is only one single point in space, and it is impossible to reach any others. There is no way to observe any "past" events, but you can still have an effect on future points in space-time - as long as those points can draw their origin to the single point in time and space you're at right now.
At t=infinity, everything is accelerating away from everything else at the speed of light. This means that there is no way to observe or interact... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Am I the only person here who has nothing to do with STEM in real life? I just like to discuss science and tinker. I dont actually like the professional STEM environment, you have to be so qualified and work so hard for such little pay and recognition and your peers are all insufferable autists.
I have seen UFOs with my own two eyes, as have many, many other people. I think it is an extraordinary claim that there is a small branch of humanity which has not just advanced technology but actual science which is decades if not centuries ahead of the reast of humanity, and has done so for the better part of the last century.
Eventually you learn how to handle it adaptively almost automatically. For example if it was 103.00 - 12.12, you could start with the decimal values first, or just recognize what they would do and just do 102 - 12, the decimal.
Super Strypi is launching soon, carrying ORS 4 and some cubesats.
The ORS 4 mission is a first flight demonstration of the experimental, low-cost Super Strypi small launch system. The Operationally Responsive Space office is managing development of Super Strypi in partnership with the University of Hawaii, Sandia National Laboratories, the Pacific Missile Range Facility and Aerojet Rocketdyne Corp. The goal is to deliver payloads in the range of 300 kilograms to low Earth orbit. A Super Strypi launch vehicle will deliver the HiakaSat spacecraft and multiple... Comment too long.

OP's pic related is pretty amazing I personally recommend "How to Build a Habitable Planet" by Langmuir and Broecker, but it's more about planetary geology than astronomy. The first few chapters have some good astronomy shit though. Covers nucleosynthesis, stellar life cycle, accretion, etc.
>No intellectual posing please friend, i believe you have not completely grasped where it is that you are posting pretending to be intelligent is what makes /sci/ so wonderful the idiots that don't actually know anything pretending to be smart, and the smart people being idiots all balances out in a raging shit-flinging contest between the two parties
>>7635246 In neither the theoretical mathematical formulation of AGI (AIXI) nor the current state of the art AI systems does "rewriting code" come into play in the least. It seems entirely like something someone who knew less than nothing about how computers or AI actually work imagined as just sounding cool, which would be no one's business but their own except for that I've seen it repeated so frequently.
Programs that rewrite themselves are also nothing novel in CS and yet none of it has resulted... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
