Treasure Island

chandra thiagarajan


Space— appears to have been created by Big Bang 13.7million years ago.
Space—has been expanding ever since.
Space—is never ending.
Space—is the fabric of cosmos.
Space—has no air—it is empty and is an absolute vacuum.
Space— as sound waves cannot travel through vacuum one cannot hear here.
Space—it's outer space begins about 100kms.above the Earth where the shell of air
around our Earth disappears.
Space—appears a black blanket dotted with stars as there is no air to scatter sunlight
and produce a blue sky.

Space—is usually regarded as completely empty. But it isn't true. The vast gaps between
the stars and planets are filled with huge amounts of thinly spread gas and dust.
Space—is also filled with many forms of radiation that are dangerous to astronauts.
Much of this ultra-red and ultra-violet radiation comes from the Sun.
Space—has high energy X-Rays, Gamma Rays, and Cosmic Rays—Particles travelling
close to the speed of light—arrive from distant Star systems.
Space—contains solar wind which are clouds of inter-stellar dust and tiny particles.
Space—contains many isolated particles and Hydrogen atoms which sometimes forms
Clouds over a billion kms. wide called Nebulae.
Space—through it echo Radio, Heat, and X-Rays as do beams of light.
Space—in it is radiation bursting forth in solar flames.

Space—contains our planet Earth, Sun, Moon, and other planets with their moons.
Earth is 93million miles from the Sun and 240,000miles from the Moon.
Space—contains electro-magnetic radiation, magnetic fields, and Neutrinos.
Space—contains Dark matter and Dark energy.
Space—inter-stellar is the physical space within a galaxy not occupied by star or their
planetary systems.
Space—inter-galactic space is the physical space between galaxies.
Space—these huge spaces between galaxy clusters are called voids.

Space—is the limitless three dimensional extent in which objects and events occur
and have relative position and direction.
Space—physical Space is conceived in 3 linear dimensions, though modern scientists consider
it, with Time to be part of a boundless 4 dimensional continuum known as Space Time.
Space—and Time can be mathematically combined into one object called Space Time - was
Einstein's discovery due to relativity of motion.

Space—holds our cell phone satellites
Space—in it 3 orbiters fly today. They are Discovery, Atlantis, and Endeavour.
Space—it separates you from me, one galaxy from the next and atoms from one another.
Space -is every where in the Universe.
Space- is one of the five Elements

    Ah! there is a little space finally given for such sensible extension to your thoughts Madam Chithra. You have joined my wand wagon for a while.... You are retired but not at all tired I say.... (Report) Reply

    Besides being a house wife with hands full and a grand mother, your endless pursuit after scientific knowledge and your willingness to share it with others is so praise worthy. A commendable job! ! (Report) Reply
