SCIENCE IS COOL
Science is cool and it makes me anxious. I’m very troubled by these things. Not many people care about science and that is even more troubling. Here are some basic interesting things about science, please hype it up. We should all think about these things when we can’t sleep.
SCIENCE IS MAGIC
According to the laws of physics we can theoretically time travel, teleport and walk through walls, so one cool thing about science is that it’s actually magic. We’d probably be able to do a lot cooler shit right now if everybody cared about science.
Time Travel: There are a few ways to time travel. The easiest way humans can time travel is by looking at anything. What we’re seeing is actually an image of the past because we see via light, and the light reflected from any object takes time to get to our eyeballs. On everyday scales this is inconsequential (light travels at 186,282 miles per second), but when it comes to large distances — like stars in faraway lands — it matters a lot. The farthest you can time travel right now by looking at stars/celestial bodies with your naked eye is around 100,000 years, but with mega-telescopes you can time travel up to 13 billion years (almost to the beginning of the universe, 13.7 billion years ago). Theoretically if we created telescopes powerful enough to see the details of faraway habitable planets, we would see civilizations that we’re happening thousands, millions or billions of years ago. If there’s aliens watching earth right now, they’re probably seeing dinosaurs. This sucks, we’re all trapped. I’ll get into this later –
