• Why does high temperature not always translate to extreme heat?

    Best answer: Temperature measures how fast particles are moving, whereas heat measures the total amount of energy that they transfer. Particles may be moving fast (high temperature), but if there are very few of them, they won't transfer much energy (low heat). Since space is mostly empty, a spacecraft could be orbiting the... show more
    Best answer: Temperature measures how fast particles are moving, whereas heat measures the total amount of energy that they transfer. Particles may be moving fast (high temperature), but if there are very few of them, they won't transfer much energy (low heat). Since space is mostly empty, a spacecraft could be orbiting the sun at an extremely close distance and with a very small plate for a head shield, protect its internal components. The lack of a transferable medium in interplanetary space ensures that very few particles transfer energy to the spacecraft.

    Best answer: That's really a matter of opinion, we're long past the point where someone can be a great polymath and what counts as a great scientist?

Someone who moves their field forward vastly or someone like Asimov (possibly the last great scientific polymath in an education sense) who taught and inspired millions in many fields? Is an experimentalist or theoretician greater? Etc, etc

  • Has the universe existed for all time?

    Best answer: Technically... yes. That is - time in *our* universe started at the same moment the universe was created... so, as we measure it, time has existed for as long as our universe has. That being said - it's possible there was something *before* our universe began - but... we'd have no way of detecting it. Yet. show more

I was shocked, within about 10 seconds a perfectly bright star had completely vanished!! Could it have been a star that just suddenly died out?? It definitely wasnt a plane as they have to have their lights flashing, and it also wasn t a satalite as it was stationary for at least the few minutes i was looking at it!!

    I've had experiences since I was a kid at every place I've stayed some were ok as in nothing evil, but I've had a couple I've experienced evil energy or whatever it might be. I've never wanted to see things or address them, and I think negative energy has come to me the past few days. Since I was a kid I've seen things, heard things, and felt things. At the house, I currently live in even when I started living here we would hear the lights old house old light switches it takes a good force to move them up or down. But you can hear them but nothing was done, and sometimes lights have been turned off or on. One night, in particular, a couple of months ago I was home alone locked my bedroom door and turned my light off to sleep. I did not get up during the night, and when I woke up, my light was on. The past few days I haven't been able to sleep my anxiety has been high like even at 3:20 p.m. now I feel on edge like something is here. I just tried to cleanse my area and speak out I've heard thumping in the walls, and I heard something move beside me on my table next to me.
