“There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity.” -Rod Serling It’s been an action-packed week here on Starts With A Bang, and we’ve tackled a whole slew of topics you’re unlikely to see anyplace else! The past week has…

“Whenever you have infinities in a theory, that’s where the theory fails as a description of nature. And if space was born in the Big Bang, yet is infinite now, we are forced to believe that it’s instantaneously, infinitely big. It seems absurd.” -Janna Levin Of course, we don’t believe space was born in the Big…

“I’m a shooting star. A meteor shower. But I’m not going to die out. I guess I’m more like a comet then. I’m just going to keep on coming back.” -C. JoyBell C. Every year, meteor showers sizzle and fizzle, yet no matter what happens in the skies, there’s always one meteor shower that’s reliable…

“You can’t cheat an honest man. Never give a sucker an even break or smarten up a chump.” -W.C. Fields Well, it was bound to happen. A bad science story — a story of illegitimate science with all the right buzzwords — has gone viral. By now, you, too, have probable heard about the “impossible”…

Every once in a while, a scientist comes along who leaves an impression on the field so strong that all of the subsequent work on uses their results as a starting point, as a foundation. Einstein did that with relativity; Dirac did that with relativistic quantum mechanics; even Newton did that with mechanics. But what about…

“It takes considerable knowledge just to realize the extent of your own ignorance.” -Thomas Sowell Every object of the 110 in the Messier Catalogue tells its own unique story, but not every object is a true astronomical object on its own! Along with two groupings of stars — a double star (M40) and a quadruple…

“Everybody wants peace. That’s a truism. There is no point in accomplishing through war what you can accomplish through peace.” -Norman Finkelstein Say what you will about this world, and there’s an artist out there who can say it more effectively without needing to use a single word. For those who can do that, I…

“Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together.” -James Cash Penney We don’t normally have a week like this, where we not only take on the biggest topics in all of existence, but also have a ground-shaking announcement to make that alters the very fabric of Starts With A Bang!…

“In my better sense of mind, I know that I’m far from alone and far from the worst, and the earth keeps spinning. Everything keeps moving, with or without me.” -Phil Anselmo The Universe is a chaotic place, where nothing truly exists in isolation. Even if, at the moment of the Big Bang, nothing in…

“Men at some time are masters of their fates: The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, But in ourselves…” -William Shakespeare It isn’t every day that I pause to make an announcement, but it also isn’t every day that I have news quite like this! Thanks to the new Starts With A Bang digs over…
