FC: space BY: DAVID CAMPBELL
1: space is underestimated in nearly every aspect. not only is the sheer distance of space incomprehensible to the human mind, but also we do not have compatibility with spatial reasoning in those extremities
3: BLACK HOLES we may not have any evidence on the existence of such entities, but due to quantum mechanics. something like this is possible. it is believed by many that the singularity point of such a thing would not only be a variable, but would also be the point in which the laws of physics break down. it is an empty hole with both infinite gravity and infinite weight. we cannot see them because even light cannot possibly escape from its dark reach. in theory, time is broken at the center, so theoretically you could fly around it in a curve and create time travel.
5: Alien life Does alien life exist, well out of more than 1 trillion galaxies, which contains. in total the amount of stars in the universe would be more than 1 followed by 40,000 zeros. so you ask me, is there life in the universe other than us. lets just say we are not very special at all.
7: MAGNETAR: Magnetars, which create the most powerful magnetic fields in the universe, are a rare type of neutron star. Neutron stars are a type of "stellar remnant," meaning they are left over from the supernovae of stars much larger than the sun. All neutron stars are incredibly dense and are made up mostly of neutrons.
8: Composition: Magnetars are extremely dense and are mostly comprised of free neutrons, or neutrons that are not bound to protons in atomic nuclei as is the case in normal conditions. This material is also called neutron-degenerate matter. One teaspoon of it weighs about 1,000 billion kilograms, or approximately the combined weight of every human being alive.
9: Structure and Size: Little is known about the exact physical structure of a magnetar because they are extremely rare and scientists have not been able to study much about them. It is known that most magnetars have a diameter of about 12 miles and can weigh twice as much as the Sun. They rotate very quickly. One full rotation takes between 1 and 10 seconds.
10: Magnetic Field: Magnetic fields are commonly measured in units called teslas. The magnetic field of a magnetar can be as strong as 10 gigatesla, or 10^10 teslas. For comparison, this is hundreds of millions of times stronger than the strongest man-made magnetic field. Even at a distance of 1,000 kilometers, the magnetic field of a magnetar would be lethal.
11: Origins and Life Cycle Magnetars are formed by the supernovae of stars much larger than the sun -- as much as 30 or 40 times more massive. After the outward explosion of a supernovae, much of the matter of the star collapses back in on itself to form an incredibly dense body called a neutron star. All neutron stars have strong magnetic fields; magnetars are those which have fields in the gigatesla range. They only remain active for around 10,000 years, after which their magnetic field weakens
13: Supernovas: supernovae are one of the most catastrophic phenomena's in the universe, second only to Dark matter. a star is like a natural, nuclear reactor, as the star's age progresses, nuclear fusion (atoms being fused together) fuses hydrogen atoms near its surface, making new, denser, elements. star go from; hydrogen, to helium, to carbon, to oxygen, to neon, to magnesium, then finally to silicon. sadly after its fuel has been reduced down to silicon, the star literally sings its own death, it starts fusing the silicon into iron. all iron in the universe has killed stars before. after the star fuses the silicon into iron, iron is the bottom line, unlike all the other elements, iron cant be fused into anything else, it is simply too dense. after the star runs out of fuel it explodes, this explosion is called a supernova.
