Reality Check: Is Our Universe Real? Perhaps our human senses are deceiving us — maybe existence is an illusion, and reality isn't real.

Reality Check: Is Our Universe Real?

The idea that everything we know is merely a construction of our minds is investigated in the next episode of the Science Channel program "Through the Wormhole," hosted by Morgan Freeman. The episode premieres Wednesday (July 17) at 10 p.m. Cosmologist claims Universe may not be expanding. The conventional model of cosmology is that most galaxies recede from one another as space itself inflates like the surface of a balloon — which would explain why other galaxies appear redshifted from our own galaxy's point of view.

Cosmologist claims Universe may not be expanding

But one cosmologist has a different interpretation of that redshift. It started with a bang, and has been expanding ever since. For nearly a century, this has been the standard view of the Universe.

Konstantin Tsiolkovsky Intro

Konstantin E. Tsiolkovsky State Museum of the History of Cosmonautics Russian physicist and school teacher, regarded as the founder of modern rocket theory. Born in the small town of Izhevskoye almost exactly 100 years before his country placed the world's first artificial satellite in orbit, Tsiolkovsky developed the mathematics of rocketry and pioneered a number of ideas crucial to space travel including that of multistage launch vehicles. He later recalled: John Templeton Foundation : Does the Universe Have a Purpose? The Elegant Universe: Series ...

Sistem GJ676A je mnogo veći od našeg, ali mu veoma nalikuje, kažu astronomi… Astronomi su uočili našeg, kako kažu „grotesknog“ blizanca: planetarni sistem organizovan vrlo slično kao Sunčev sistem, otkriva se u novoj studiji.

Otkriven „groteskni“ brat blizanac Sunčevog sistema - National Geographic Srbija

Nazvan GJ676A, sistem je koji ma dve kamenite planete koje orbitiraju u blizini zvezde i dva gasovita giganta koja su udaljena. To znači da je sistem uređen vrlo slično kao naš – osim što je u GJ676A sve mnogo veće. Na primer, najmanja kamenita planeta u ovom sistemu ima masu najmanje četiri puta veću od Zemlje, dok je najveći član sistema pet puta veći od Jupitera. I drugi sistemi koji se sastoje od više planeta su otkriveni do sada, poput onog nazvanog HD10180, koji se smatra najbogatijim egzoplanetarnim otkrićem jer ima sedam do devet planeta koje orbitiraju oko zvezde.

An interactive version of XKCD 1071: Exoplanets using data from Planetary Habilitability Laboratory (via @ProfAbelMendez) and adapted code from the d3.js Bubble Chart example (by @mbostock).


Planets are drawn to scale using radius data. The dataset also includes attributes such as atmosphere type, which is included in the information area on the left. The dataset is large (about 1.1mb), so it may take a few seconds to load. All blue and light brown planets are smaller than Jupiter. Brown represents the planets larger than Jupiter, while red represents the largest of them all.
