God fashioning the Universe (An exclusive photo)
The Universe zapped into shape about 13.7 billion years ago. The Universe is all of time and space and its contents: the stars, the galaxies, intergalactic space, the planets, moons, minor planets and all matter and energy.
The Observable Universe is c. 91 billion light-years in diameter (46 billion light years to Earth)
The size of the entire Universe is unknown, but there are many hypotheses about the evolution of the Universe. (see Dr.Kaku)
The Universe Chronos
Observable galaxies etc
Cronus head Titan titans were descendants of Uranus(Sky)roman name Caelus father sky
And Gaia (Earth)Mother Earth mother and wife of Uranus
Uranus’s son was Cronus whose son was Zeus
Uranus’s daughter was Aphrodite from his castrated testicles
Cronus / Chronos = time together = Father Time
Infinity Multiverses Expands & contracts bang after bang ad infinitum
The Big Bang (Chronus)
Local Superclusters➡Virgo Supercluster➡Local Galactic Group➡Milky Way Galaxy (Constellations)➡Interstellar neighbourhood ➡Giant interstellar molecular clouds collapse via Gravity & form The Solar System & its Planets
Within Galaxies there are countless Solar Systems
The Solar System
The Sun is the star at the center of the Solar System. It is a nearly perfect sphere of hot plasma, with internal convective motion that generates a magnetic field via a dynamo process. It is by far the most important source of energy for life on EARTH
Its diameter is about 109 times that of Earth, and its mass is about 330,000 times that of Earth, accounting for about 99.86% of the total mass of the Solar System. About three quarters of the Sun’s mass consists of hydrogen (~73%); the rest is mostly helium (~25%),
with much smaller quantities of heavier elements, including oxygen, carbon, neon, and iron
The Planetary Bodies
A planetary body or planetary object is any secondary body in the Solar System[dubious – discuss] that is geologically differentiated or in hydrostatic equilibrium and thus has a planet-like geology: a planet, dwarf planet, or the larger moons and asteroids.
In 2002, planetary scientists Alan Stern and Harold Levison proposed the following algorithm to determine whether an object in space satisfies the definition for a planetary body. The body must:
Be low enough in mass that at no time (past or present) can it generate energy in its interior due to any self-sustaining nuclear fusion chain reaction.
Be large enough that its shape becomes determined primarily by gravity rather than mechanical strength or other factors (such as surface tension or rotation rate) in less than a Hubble time, so that the body would on this timescale or shorter reach a state of hydrostatic equilibrium in its interior.
This definition excludes brown dwarfs and stars, as well as small bodies such as planetesimals.
