    shouldn't exist according to current physics theorys
    Well then surely those theorys are wrong? Quick take their noble prizes away!

    The "Deep Field" has been amazing me for some time. It bends my mind to think that the light from those galaxies has been travelling for 13 BILLION years. I think I need to lie down in a dark room...

    The power of science is that you look at what you can see and measure etc and come up with theories. You keep these theories until something else comes along which doesn't fit and at that point you try to work out how to revise those theories.

    Newton's laws looked good when he proposed them; we now know that they don't work for really small, really big and really fast objects so we have new theories to explain motion.

    Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown,
    And things seem hard or tough,
    And people are stupid, obnoxious or daft,
    And you feel that you've had quite eno-o-o-o-o-ough,

    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
    And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.
    Thats orbiting at ninety miles a second, so it's reckoned,
    A sun that is the source of all our power.
    The sun, and you and me, and all the stars that we can see,
    Are moving at a million miles a day,
    In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
    Of a galaxy we call the Milky Way.

    Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars;
    It's a hundred thousand light-years side to side;
    It bulges in the middle sixteen thousand light-years thick,
    But out by us it's just three thousand light-years wide.
    We're thirty thousand light-years from Galactic Central Point,
    We go 'round every two hundred million years;
    And our galaxy itself is only one of millions of billions
    In this amazing and expanding universe.


    The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
    In all of the directions it can whiz;
    As fast as it can go, the speed of light, you know,
    Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
    So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
    How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
    And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
    'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

    Monty Python..

    @littlemiss, glad to see you quoting python. I thought, when I first started reading, you where about to break into song...

    Some things in life are bad
    They can really make you mad
    Other things just make you swear and curse
    When you're chewing on life's gristle
    Don't grumble, give a whistle
    And this'll help things turn out for the best
    And...

    Always look on the bright side of life (whistle)
    Always look on the light side of life (whistle)
    (Eric Idle)

    The earth is 3 billions years old, we spend less than a 100 years here.
    3 x 1000 x 100000 years is a long time, yet here we are.
