Earendel, “Morning Star” who twinkled bright within six million years of Cosmic Birth – the eldest star we can see in the night for now, with current optics, near the Earth – though Hubble can resolve you as a star we have a mirrored honeycomb in place that corrects for the light stretched to IR.

AGE OF THE UNIVERSE Indulging in lots of dark energy, she begins to grow detached and aloof. Though parts of her are still quite attractive, she’s expanded substantially since youth, no longer can touch her extremities and has lost some of her former sparkle. She remembers when she was much hotter – […]Read more "Age Of The Universe"
🎤 🔉 NEW WORLDS VOYAGE They say one day the stars will be so far away from one another as to be forevermore invisible, one to another. Imagine, if one could get financed, the intergalactic Columbus of that age – Possessed of such bravery to set sail beyond “Sol,” without stars to beckon or guide, […]Read more "New Worlds Voyage"
TIME’S ARCHERY Time’s passage changes with velocity and near a strong gravitational field. Mass and speed show full reciprocity — their equivalence now clearly revealed. If we accept that the Big Bang occurred, and matter was once infinitely dense, this measure alone would prove it absurd for time to pass. It just would not […]Read more "TIME’S ARCHERY"
DARK GRAVITY The speed of light’s the limit, so we hold, as frequencies get stretched past infrared, and all the universe is growing cold a process that apparently has sped almost impossibly since it began because expansion should reduce its vim, and gravity should be custodian and sweep together, not its antonym. Thermodynamics on the […]Read more "DARK GRAVITY"
UNABLE TO PULL IT TOGETHER No particle known is unaffected by gravity’s inexorable force, but, perhaps it was not yet perfected at the Big Bang, which was everything’s source. The entire mass of the Universe lacked the density to form a black hole but instead expanded, which seems perverse, as though gravity failed to […]Read more "UNABLE TO PULL IT TOGETHER"
SECLUSION PRINCIPLE We live within a universe so vast we never will perceive its full extent. Because there are horizons that are past the span light can speed in the firmament, parts of the cosmos will be forever beyond possible communication. As fast as light, we’ll still reach them never, for they have greater acceleration. […]Read more "SECLUSION PRINCIPLE"
INTERWOVEN DESIGNS We live due to a natural balance of elemental forces and charges so intricate that we have not yet deciphered their pattern. Only on this wet and rocky sphere with a magnetic core only at this distance from a moderate, long burning star, protected by our cratering moon, and sheltered by outer giants, […]Read more "Interwoven Designs"
FLEEING FROM THE PAST Big- Bang, it’s dubbed, but the start of our universe is more like an un-popped bubble expanding forever faster and ever faster fleeing from the only edge time’s arrow insists upon and the only edge allowed.Read more "FLEEING FROM THE PAST"
COSMIC RECALCULATION — to Dr. Wendy L. Freedman In the cosmos, a crisis brews today, regarding the standard model that’s held. “Things expand too fast,” astronomers say, “The Hubble constant is being excelled. “We’ve graphed predictions and made a table, but Expansion’s chosen another path. Unfortunately, we are unable to force Creation to […]Read more "COSMIC RECALCULATION"
