A VERY Old Star!

Bond and his collaborators estimated HD 140283's age to be 14.46 billion years — a significant reduction on the 16 billion previously claimed. That was, however, still more than the age of the universe itself, but the scientists posed a residual uncertainty of 800 million years, which Bond said made the star's age compatible with the age of the universe, even though it wasn't entirely perfect.

The mystery of the age of HD 140283 is leading to something bigger and more scientifically complex, altering the understanding of how the universe works. "The most likely explanations for the paradox are some overlooked observational effect and/or something big missing from our understanding of the dynamics of the cosmic expansion," Matthews said. Precisely what that "something" is, is sure to keep astronomers challenged for some time.

Back when I lived in West Virginia many a clear night I'd go outside and look up at all those countless stars.
To think most are suns with their own group of planets orbiting them, there has to be other intelligent life out there.
There are too many unexplained mysteries on earth for there not to have had been some form of super intelligent help in the creation whether the pyramids or Roman structures.
Even the castles and churches that were built in ancient times, where did that knowledge come from?
I'm rambling, sorry.

If we look through our telescopes, we also look back in time. We see how the universe got from a hot dense state to the present cold empty state. But there is a wall to what we can see: the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation from around 380,000 years after the Big Bang. It’s sometimes called the “afterglow of the big bang”. Before that, the universe was filled with opaque plasma, so light can’t come from further back. It’s possible that we may detect gravity waves from earlier, but we’ve just started with that kind of observations. However, we’re not clueless: we have great and well-proven physics theories, we can do laboratory experiments, and we can see ripples and dots on the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation that must have come from somewhere. So we can infer what was going on before that, even if we can’t see it directly. But eventually, at the Planck epoch ( 10−43 seconds after the bang), there’s another wall. As we go back in time, it gets hotter and denser, and eventually, the fundamental forces starts to unite. First electromagnetism and the weak nuclear force, then the strong nuclear force joins them, and finally, it gets so hot and dense that the fundamental force of gravity has to join the other three.

Gravity is described through the theory on general relativity, while the other are described by quantum mechanics. We know how they work pretty well, but … they don’t play nice together. The point is that we don’t have a theory that allows us to combine gravity and the other three fundamental forces. It is possible that a theory on quantum gravity may be what we need. It is possible that such a theory could be found in string theory. But string theory is incomplete, and also may not be the physics theory we need, or even be right. Since we can’t see what happened before 380,000 years after the bang, and since we can’t infer what happens before the Planck epoch, the moment of the Big Bang remains beyond our grasp. That doesn’t mean that we can’t speculate, though. We just can’t test those speculations (such as this one) to see which – if any – is the correct one.

Planck Epoch - In the time before the first 10-44 seconds of the Universe, or the Planck Epoch, the laws of physics as we know them break down; the predictions of General Relativity become meaningless as distance scales approach the Planck length at which random quantum mechanical fluctuations dominate.

Putting it another way: The Planck Temperature
is the temperature of the Universe at 1 Planck
Time after the Big Bang, and is considered the
de facto maximum possible temperature. It has
been calculated to be approximately 1.4 × 10>32°C
It is also the size of the Universe at this
epoch in time, one Planck Unit of length. The
Planck length is 1.6 x 10<35 metres. (That's
0.000000000000000000000000000000000016 meters.)
To give you an idea, let's compare it with the
size of an atom, which is already about 100,000
times smaller than anything you can see with
your unaided eye (an atom size is about
0.0000000001 meters).

Everything about the Universe in this epoch is
divisible by 1 Planck Unit....length, height,
width, time, and temperature. Not a coincidence
I should think

What happened before the big bang? What was the
Universe like at 1x10<50 seconds? What was it like
when time was equal to 0 seconds? Understanding
how the universe began has been a goal for scientists,
philosophers, and theologians for millennia. In this
video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln describes the scientific
view on this topic. He covers what we know, what we think,
and what we may forever never know.

What lies beyond the frontier of this high-energy soup,
however, remains a mystery. We have no direct evidence
for what occurred in those earliest stages, although
many of the predictions of cosmic inflation have been
indirectly confirmed. The edge of the Universe, as it
appears to us, is unique to our perspective; we can
see back 13.8 billion years in time in all directions,
a situation that depends on the spacetime location of
the observer who’s looking at it.

Wade says, "For someone on the West Virginia property
and held a finger to the wind, the expansion began here.
Likewise, for a property owner in Tennessee who did the
same thing, the expansion begin here as well."

Wade then says, "Not so fast. I know what you are
thinking. Because you see...if someone did the same
thing with a finger in the nation-state of Vatican
City, the expansion began there as well. The other
side of the same token...the same result willl be
found in Tel Aviv...or as I believe...the Khazars
have moved their "Capitol" to Jerusalem in
Occupied Palestine.

"Be careful. We are all part of the same Universe."

After revisiting this link for the second or
third time, Dan Hooper unfortunately invokes
the 'holier-than-thou' Jew Albert Einstein.
I did not notice it at first, and find disturbing
Hooper's compulsion to do this. Einstein may
have been a physicist by trade - but like his
fellow tribesmen - he was first and foremost, a

Einstein plagiarized much - if not most - of his
work and after reviewing this very good link, I feel
compelled to add this item: ... lagiarized

It is almost impossible to find a good physics and
cosmological link without the subjects paying lip
service to this Jewish fraud. Don't forget, this
is the "humanitarian" Jew who urged the goy FDR to
build and use nuclear weapons on Hitler's Germany.

Also of note....many of the participants of the
Manhattan Project were Jews. Let us not lose sight
of that unfortunate fact.

...and the multi-verse:

....and also...

The observable part of our universe is 93 billion
light years across, and that’s just a small fraction
of the stuff created in our Big Bang. But in the
eternal inflation picture, ours is just one among
uncountable bubble universes. Bubbles that are
continuously appearing and growing within a vastly
larger spacetime that itself expands at an exponentially
accelerating rate. A greater inflationary spacetime
whose expansion never ends. We looked at the bizarre
idea of eternal inflation in recent episodes – but
we stopped short of exploring the full implications
of this proposition. Those implications are, frankly,
completely nuts. Some may also be true.

We discovered we lived on a planet orbiting a star
within the solar system and the solar system was
found to be part of the Milky Way galaxy. Later
we learned that our universe was filled with billions
of other such galaxies - but could it be that we're
committing the same error as our ancestors by thinking
the universe contains everything there is? Could it be
that we live in a multiverse?
