Great find, thank the good lord, we'll all be long gone before it collides and obliterates our entire galaxy tinfoil.gif

Hey, this caught my attention...

Please spare us your incoherent ramblings! They are becoming increasingly detached from reality!

Really? A globular cluster acts like a beta particle??? How can this be when a beta particle is randomly generated by an unstable nucleus while a globular cluster has been sitting around its host galaxy for billions of years? And how many times do I have to tell you that an atomic nucleus holds 99% of the mass of an atom while black holes at the centers of galaxies only hold 1% or less of the mass found within the galaxy?


I don't care who you are, that's some lively conversation going on right there. I wonder if this guy does parties and bat Mitzvahs?

In all seriousness our human minds are not capable of realizing just how amazingly fast the speed of these cosmic objects actually is and just how astoundingly vast the distances actually are and so you and i can see and read the words and numbers but we are unable to comprehend what they really mean for they exist far away beyond our ability to ever truly understand...

Yes,,,the velocities are insane,,,and few people realize,,,

at the equator,,,people are spinning around at 1000 miles per hour,,,

in the US,,,more like 300 to 400 miles per hour...

And the International Space Station goes around the earth,,,

every 90 minutes,,,therefore,,,25000 miles per hour,,,

still basically stopped compared to 300,000 kilometers per second...
