MORE IDEAS FROM Space at the Speed of Light

From the big bang to black holes, this fast-paced tour of time and space for the astro-curious unlocks the science of the stars to reveal fascinating theories, surprising discoveries, and ongoing mysteries in modern astronomy and astrophysics.

Before the big bang, time, space, and matter didn't exist. In the 14 billion years since, scientists have pointed their telescopes upward, peering outward in space and backward in time, developing and refining theories to explain the weird and wonderful phenomena they observed.

What is a Black hole ?

Black holes cannot be seen as they don't reflect any light.

The centre of black hole is called singularity - a point of infinite density i.e the space curvature extends to infinity.

According to scientists, billons of black holes exists of which millions are having the abode Milky way galaxy

Whenever an astronomy book comes into my hands, I feel faint. Actually, I feel like a microbe. This is a series that in 50 different ideas, words or themes, the author develops in her research. 

If you take a look at the tags / labels I have chosen to classify this book you will realize what I am saying.
Communication is very digital, having read the book on Kindle. This already gives the subject something unimaginary, unexpected, unpredictable, fantastic just like science fiction.

Fermi's Paradox

The detection of life elsewhere in the universe would be the greatest discovery of all time. Physics professor Enrico Fermi wondered why, given the age and vastness of the universe, and the presence of billions of stars and planets that have existed for billions of years, we have not yet been contacted by any other alien civilizations. This was his paradox.
