  • An invisible galaxy

    This stuff messes with me because it points out just how little we know about the universe around us:

    'Dark' galaxy discovered

    And it also reminds me of insignificant we are the overall scheme of things.

    dark Matter, dark energy...

    Lucas may have been onto something back in 19977......dark forces do exist.

      Wow... just when you think we have enough on our plates with the few million galaxies Hubble can see... now we find out there's likely an even larger amount that it's not capable of seeing, but that are closer than some that it can.

      That's...

      Mind-boggling.

        No joke. What else aren't we seeing out there? There's bound to be even more out there that we can't even fathom at this point.

        I remember reading about a neighboring solar system that had planets making entirely weird "orbits" that defied what we figured was physically possible based on the mechanics of our own solar system. And that's just one of the few other solar systems where we can actually get readings of planets (not through visual evidence, other means). So, if we can't even establish a standard set of physical laws that apply outside our own solar system, what the hell do we even really know?

        Okay, I think I'm rambling. I'm in serious need of sleep.

          Absolutely nothing.

            Ahhh... That is true wisdom, grasshoppa!

            And on that note, I'll bid you all a good night!

              Okay, the line (paraphrased below) originally came from Men in Black... actually I'm certain they stole it too...


              "1200 years ago, we knew the world was flat. 400 years ago, we knew the Sun revolved around the Earth. 200 years ago, we knew blacks were inferior in every way. 100 Years ago, we knew women weren't capable of reading, writing or voting. Yesterday, we knew we were alone in this galaxy.

              Imagine what we'll know tomorrow."

                Hmm...

                I dunno if it's mind-boggling to me. I know there is an infinite amount of things out there we have no idea about...so.
