UFO / Rambling around the Universe

The universe is an amazing place from what we observe. The distances are truely mind numbing to even attempt to grasp in some meaningful way. To give an idea of how mind numbing I offer you this YouTube clip.

◄ clicky

Near everything we observe is going away from us. That is lacking a few such as the Andromeda Galaxy.



Andromeda Galaxy ◄ clicky

Everything can be measured as how fast we are departing from each other through red shift. The typical rule of thumb is the farther away an object, the faster is it moving away. Anything going away from us has it's light red shifted. The furthest objects we have detected through the Einstien Ring has been red shifted into the infrared part of the spectrum. The Einstein ring is a quirk of gravity, predicted but until fairly recent modern times never observed.



Einstein ring ◄ clicky

Anything approaching us has it's light blue shifted. There are not many galaxies that are blue shifted we find. The Andromeda Galaxy is blue shifted because we are due for a collision with it in about 4 billion years. You might want to circle that year on your calender so as not to miss it.

We've gone through several ideas over time as to the nature of the Universe and what that might mean to us. During Medieval Ages the universe was thought to be filled with Aether. A material that filled all space so that light and gravity had something to transport it along.

At some point the idea of the Big Crunch came along. The Big Crunch was that if there was not enough energy to continually push the universe in expansion that one day it would run out of energy and reverse direction. All mass and objects headed back to a center point. Sort of like when you throw a ball in the air and it comes back to earth. Others felt that there might not be enough gravity to oppose expansion and it might continue on forever.

A term was created called The Omega Factor (Ω). The idea here was that if the Ω factor was 1 or greater, the expansion of the universe would never stop. If it was less than 1 then the Big Crunch was the ultimate fate of the universe. At the time dark energy and dark matter were not named but something was realized not accounted for. The Ω factor eventually came out to be slightly larger than 1, meaning there will be no Big Crunch. Instead the fate of the Universe will be continued expansion, at an ever increasingly faster rate. If humans are around there will come a time when no stars are visible in the Universe. That everything will be so far apart, reaching another star system won't be possible, given the science we know today. This will occur before the ultimate end of entropy. Entropy being the loss of all energy to where there is nothing left of moving molecules or enough energy to see light, nor heat. Again relativity will stretch that time a bit longer, due to the slow speed of light traveling. Probably for many millions of years afterwards possibly billions, that last beam of light will continue in space until it finds something that blocks its photons.

The universe will end with a whimper, not a bang.

UFO / Intelligent Life Elsewhere In Our Galaxy

Intelligent Life Elsewhere In Our Galaxy

As we all know there are tons of stars in our galaxy. As many more we can't see due to the dust regions that block visible light so that we can't see what is on the other side. Out of that vast number of stars and systems the uncountable numbers would seem to say intelligent life exists elsewhere too.

I think in all this that many don't realize just how rare our position is here. We are the only place we know that intelligent life exists. Think of all the things that had to be or happen for us to be here. Any of which if it didn't happen would mean we would not exist.

Fermi once put up the question of 'Where are they'? His meaning that if there was one star fairing race, it should by now have populated the galaxy and we should know of them. Yet to date we have no official recognition such is.

Half the stellar systems are binary, having at least two suns. These you can pretty much wipe out for having an intelligence. The weather environment of such a system brings in extremes in weather making life present a near impossibility as we know life to be. Then there are the stars that have no planets, so no life there.

It is unlikely that intelligence exists in the core center of our galaxy. One because most galaxies have a large black hole at the center as does ours and when it takes in matter it emits xrays strongly and that means sterilization. The other that stars are closer together in the center. One goes nova and it will wipe out anything close to it in stellar neighbors. That leaves the middle on out to the fringes for possible places life could exist. 

By what we've seen of exoplanets, most of them have Jupiter sized planets near the star. This means that it pulls on the system to gather the left over masses of matter, such as asteroids and comets which will surely cross the orbits of other planets coming in. Picture Earth's early planet in the making with major bombardments of comets, which provided a dry earth with water. After that stage, the dinosaurs found out what that means. Life under those conditions is shakey at best. As with our system the Jovian planets need to be out in the outer reaches of the system to clean it up, without endangering a life bearing planet. From what we've seen so far, this is very rare as the place to be for a Jovian planet. Look at our moon to see why this is important. It has a record for all to see of being hit time and again by impact.

Our earth received a hit from an early protoplanet which hit in just the right way to produce a super moon but not in a way that shattered the planet apart. This moon has been responsible for the tides that are found on the earth and served as a giant stir stick to keep things mixed up and provide a way for minerals and materials to mix. Lack of that meant any life would have to go to the area where the mineral was, which always takes more energy. More energy needed means less chance of survival.

When our earth was formed, there was no oxygen. It was mainly hydrogen and carbon dioxide. Oxygen has been one of the powering elements to drive changes through corrosion as well as providing energy to our life forms. That took around a billion years to happen before vegetation could occur in the form of microscopic one celled bodies. It was those bodies that provided the oxygen to allow vegetation to grow when finally there was enough oxygen present. This is a rare thing, rather than a common one.

Our earth has large parts of radioactivity within the core. Enough to provide warmth to the planet. But radioactivity also drives mutations, giving that mix where survival of the fittest has a place to occur. Uncountable numbers of mutations have occurred in the last 4 billion years to produce what we know of as life. With out that radioactivity, none of what we now know of as life is possible.

Also we have a molten iron core at the center of the earth, without which, life would be shortly sterilized on this planet. The molten core along with the spin of the planet generate a magnetic field that keeps the sun's radiation from killing all life on the surface. It is the Van Allen belts that provide that protection and one of the reasons why the ISS is in so low of an orbit.

Then there is the location of the planet within the system. Outside the Goldilocks zone, water doesn't exist as a liquid. Our bodies are 98% water in liquid form. So life as we know it requires the planet's location to be where it is for the earth.

Our sun is fairly stable. It doesn't do a lot of flaring or pumping the system with strong radiation at high levels. This knocks out nearly all the other star categories with the exception of dwarf stars. The other thing about stars is that they have to have a long life for life to have the time to develop. Supermassive stars don't stay stable long enough.

There are a ton of other facts that make us unique and the total combination of all these factors make it less than likely of any other system actually developing life as we know it.

Food / Cornish hens on bed of wild rice in the microwave
« on: February 19, 2016, 08:23:42 AM »
Cornish hens on bed of wild rice in the microwave

1 box of wild rice (regular rice can be substituted, if so use 1/2 pack of dry onion soup mix for seasoning pack.)
2 1/4 cups of water
2 stalks of celery, sliced thin
1 7 oz. can of mushroom stems and pieces
2 Cornish hens
1 tablespoon of butter for rice
1/2 cup of butter for basting sauce
1 tablespoon of paprika
1 tablespoon of poultry seasoning
salt and pepper to taste.

In 2 quart microsafe dish, add water, wild rice, seasoning pack from wild rice, celery, and butter. (1/2 pack of dry onion soup mix maybe substituted for seasoning pack with regular rice.) Microwave on high for 3 minutes. Stir and continue for another 2 minutes. Stir. Set time for 10 minutes at 1/2 power. Continue to cook rice.

In the meantime, wash and half cornish hens.

Remove rice from microwave, which will be partially done. Stir rice. In a microwave safe cup, melt 1/2 cup of butter. Add paprika, poultry seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir.

Lay Cornish hens in on top of rice. Orient so that wing tips and leg tips are to the center of dish. Baste hens with butter sauce. Stir rice also at each removal. Return to microwave. Cook at full power for 10 minutes and remove every 3-4 minutes to baste hens again. On second removal, add mushrooms. Continue till hens are done. They should be done about the same time as the liquid is gone from the rice.

All times in the microwave are subjective to the microwave you have and what wattage it is. Times may have to be played with for your particular microwave. This is a great recipe for when you just don't want to heat the kitchen in the summer.
