This is a computer generated algorithm. Than it informs those that made the slot machines about the correct answers that humans can not figure out.

Like for example an answer 7 for formula (2+2) + (2+2) = 7 computer algorithms reject even though the answer never known or is close enough does not match formula (2+2) = 4 known formula. So algorithms are able to generate a more accurate answers than humans and quicker given the correct answers by comparing formulas generated free knowledge for the suckers in England that have all the money to manipulate population without crediting them for their knowledge given freely.

Neutron stars dont actually exist, astronomers has a misunderstanding of the universe and that causes them to create these wild theories from what they observe, they observed very fast pulses of light, even reaching in the milliseconds, and with it huge bursts of energy, so they come up with a neutron star, something which clearly seems impossible to exist, and that because it is, come on now, a star rotating at a revolution within milliseconds, its just insanity. We have many examples in space where we are taught that the laws of physics as we think we know it do not apply in these areas, which is clearly just an excuse to why it doesnt fit into your theory of the universe, if thats a credible answer then how could we ever find out our understanding is wrong if each time a problem arises with the theory we just simply say that the laws of physics dont apply there? We couldnt, and thats why we have so many conceptions of space that make no sense, black holes, neutron stars, dark matter.... our understanding of space is wrong, we need to start over from scratch and understand that plasma, the 4th and not taught in school state of matter makes up a very large percentage of the universe.

how where all those detailed informations collected? if i understand that right it would be impossible to get anything close enough to analyze it without being crushed. if its gravitation is that extreme, it probably wouldn’t even be possible to see it since light particles might rather be consumed than being reflected..
so where does all that knowledge come from?

How can Neon be formed before Oxygen ? Kurzgesagt , can you please help explain this fusion reaction and why does Iron cannot fuse further !! Otherwise , as usual the video is Rockin' 💞💥
Nibsipipsi - преди 21 ден
Because when you jam two carbon atoms together, it has enough protons to form neon. Afterwards, neon doesn't fuse to create oxygen, it splits.

It's not that iron can't fuse into heavier atoms, it's that the fusion consumes energy as opposed to releasing it. So the chain reaction can't continue.

What an imagination, a lone neutron will decay into a proton and some other stuff in 14 minutes. A neutron star would be like trying to make a snowball out of BBs. There is no binding force. Neutron stars do not exist.
Nibsipipsi - преди 21 ден
You're assuming normal circumstances. In a neutron star, gravity is so strong that it forces electrons and protons together. The force of gravity literally causes inverse beta decay.

They're definitely not made of what we think they are, with unique mechanics, with our piss-poor understanding of cosmic physics. We're probably totally wrong about the cores of many planets, and most of the sun's workings.

Iron can fuse just fine into other elements, however, until iron, the fusion process produces energy, with iron and heavier elements it takes more energy to fuse than the process produces.
In a nuclear reactor fission and fusion take place, that is why plutonium and other elements heavier than uranium are produced.
Pieter Visser
Pieter Visser - преди 4 дни
No, it’s a law of nature, it also works this way in stars. They produce energy by fusing lighter elements than Iron, once they have fused all lighter elements the energy production stops and the stars collapse into themselves
Fuzzy 1234

Because energy produced from fission fuels the fusion process?
Redrooster - преди месец
Does fusion use up the strong force and most of the protons? That doesn't sound right to me, there must be something else going on?
Nibsipipsi - преди 18 дни
@Redrooster You sound like those anti-vaxxers with their "wake up sheeple, think for yourself" while providing absolutely no real counter-arguments. Note that *you* interpreted the video as saying that a force was used up, which it didn't imply at all. Seeing as you were so eager to get your EM credentials out on the table, pray tell, what research were you involved with exactly?
Redrooster - преди 18 дни
@Nibsipipsi That is because your head has been filled with bullshit. I didn't say ''use up force'' you are bullshitting me! I was refuting it dickhead. As I said, think for yourself, if a textbook said the moon was made out of cheese because of this and that chemical reaction you would believe it. People like you are a worry. lol
Nibsipipsi - преди 18 дни
@Redrooster Nobody involved in EM research would say things like "use up force" or "phases of the electromagnetic spectrum". I call BS.
Redrooster - преди 18 дни
@Nibsipipsi Stop reading those textbooks and think for yourself? There is a certain point not too far from the basics where its all conjecture and its anyone's guess? I'm 67 y/o and have been involved with private EM research for most of my life and I can tell you we are so far behind from where we should be because of certain rich people who own Universities, who have the say on who gets tenure and what research is done? We are just coming out of the cave when it comes to progress in these fields (no pun intended) Thanks to the internet.
Nibsipipsi - преди 19 дни
@Redrooster I'm sorry, but that doesn't make much sense. The electromagnetic spectrum is just a phenomenon that arises from the way particles behave when interacting with photons, the boson that acts as the force carrier of the electromagnetic force. Interactions with other bosons result in other forces: The strong force is caused by gluons and the weak force is caused by W and Z bosons. All these particles are fundamental: gluons, photons and the W and Z bosons are just there. They don't consist of anything smaller, at least, not that we know of. Other fundamental particles include the quarks, electrons and neutrinos. These are the particles that make up matter, and collectively are called fermions. In total, we know of 17 bosons and fermions that together make up all matter and various forces. How gravity fits into all of this is not known, and is probably the biggest unsolved question in physics.

Seems like doing a slingshot maneuver on a neutron star might be a way to achieve light speed. 4 million miles per hour from a 1 meter drop.
Nibsipipsi - преди 21 ден
That's not how slingshots work. They accelerate a spacecraft to the orbital velocity of a body, not the terminal velocity for the craft in regards to the body.
