Our 3D universe may be a hologram with just two spatial dimensions, according to a new mathematical analysis. Are we all living in Flatland?

Hi I just joined the community. If anybody is available in the comments I have a few physics related questions that've been bugging me and I figured I'd run it through someone who might actually know (draw an educated conclusion based off what we believe to be true) if you can handle my low IQ way of asking them. I'm not sure if this is the place for discussing theoretical physics (at least I think it would fall into the category of physics) or just space pictures so I apologize if not. The guidelines didn't specify that it wasn't.

Colorful display as Star enters old age

When stars like the sun enter "retirement," they shed their outer layers into space to create glowing clouds of gas called planetary nebulae. This ejection of mass is uneven, and planetary nebulae can have very complex shapes. NGC 6818 shows knotty filament-like structures and distinct layers of material, with a bright and enclosed central bubble surrounded by a larger, more diffuse cloud.

This colorful bubble is a planetary nebula called NGC 6818, also known as the Little Gem Nebula. It is located in the constellation of Sagittarius (The Archer), roughly 6,000 light-years away from us. The rich glow of the cloud is just over half a light-year across — humongous compared to its tiny central star — but still a little gem on a cosmic scale.


Scientists believe that the stellar wind from the central star propels the outflowing material, sculpting the elongated shape of NGC 6818.

As this fast wind smashes through the slower-moving cloud it creates particularly bright blowouts at the bubble’s outer layers.

Hubble previously imaged this nebula back in 1997 with its Wide Field Planetary Camera 2, using a mix of filters that highlighted emission from ionized oxygen and hydrogen. This image, while from the same camera, uses different filters to reveal a different view of the nebula.

A Unicorn Seeking Extraterrestrial Life: Analyzing SETI@home's Source Code

Two possibilities exist: Either we are alone in the Universe or we are not. Both are equally terrifying. (c) Arthur Charles Clarke

Debates on whether or not we are alone in the Universe have been exciting our minds for many decades. This question is approached seriously by the SETI program whose mission is to search for extraterrestrial civilizations and ways to contact them. It is the analysis of one of this program's projects, SETI@home, that we are going to talk about in this article http://www.viva64.com/en/b/0327/

La Zona Habitable de Proxima Centauri es un lugar tormentoso y más bien inhóspito, en el que las posibilidades de habitabilidad de Proxima b dependen en gran medida de la capacidad del planeta para retener una potente magnetosfera, el elemento crucial y necesario.

A little after sunset tonight just above the horizon in the west, Venus & Jupiter will be be separated by less than half a degree. This close approach of the two planets will not happen again until 2065.

Tonight (Aug. 27), look toward the western horizon just after sunset to see Venus and Jupiter get up close and personal, plus a parade of planets. No telescope required!

Obviously... It's just, I see these things go quite often, and they always seem more spectacular and unique on paper.
In reality, a couple of stars that were close together last night ate slightly closer together tonight...
Maybe there should be public telescopes at every library...

Yes, there could be a new "Earth-like" planet. But, how does life/complex life actually start: Physics and Mathematics! See here: https://relativitydigest.com/2015/06/18/mathematical-origins-of-life/

V2- nazi Rocket engine..The first ballistic object
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/V-2_rocket

The V-2 (German: Vergeltungswaffe 2, "Retribution Weapon 2"), technical name Aggregat 4 (A4), was the world's first long-range[4] guided ballistic missile. The missile with a liquid-propellant rocket engine was developed during the Second World War in Germany as a "vengeance weapon," designed to attack Allied cities as retaliation for the Allied bombings against German cities. The V-2 rocket also became the first artificial object to cross the boundary of space with the vertical launch of MW 18014 on 20 June 1944

This is the ESOcast that no viewer will want to miss. We discuss the result of the quest to find a planet around the closest star to the Solar System.

The Pale Red Dot campaign aimed to find a planet orbiting our nearest stellar neighbour, Proxima Centauri. Incredibly, the quest succeeded and the team did indeed find a planet. Even more excitingly, the planet, Proxima b, falls within the habitable zone of its host star. The newly discovered Proxima b is by far the closest potential abode for alien life.

In this ESOcast, the results of this groundbreaking research are explained in detail, providing insights into the following points:

* The extensive verification process the team went through to ensure this result was accurate.
* The factors for and against the possibility of life on Proxima b.
* The nature of a “habitable zone” around a star.

The discovery of Proxima b is a major science result, making this ESOcast a must for those of you curious about one of the most intriguing questions in astronomy — “are we alone?”

NASA Apollo Saturn IB AS-202 Rocket Launch: August 25, 1966
This week in 1966, AS-202 lifted off from NASA's Kennedy Space Center. The Saturn IB primary mission objectives included the confirmation of projected launch loads, demonstration of spacecraft component separation and verification of heat shield adequacy at high reentry rates.

The Saturn IB (pronounced "one B", also known as the Uprated Saturn I) was an American launch vehicle commissioned by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) for the Apollo program. It replaced the S-IV second stage of the Saturn I with the much more powerful S-IVB, able to launch a partially fueled Apollo Command/Service Module (CSM) or a fully fueled Lunar Module (LM) into low Earth orbit for early flight tests before the larger Saturn V needed for lunar flight was ready. (Source: Wikipedia)

NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center managed the Saturn program for NASA and worked with companies across America to build the launch vehicles.
