Could humans discover the whole universe?
The universe may be expanding at the speed of light or faster, but scientists claim that the universe could stop this.
This would be due to the amount of space pollution.
However, if space pollution stopped, the universe could still die out anyway due to heat.
But would humans live to discover it all? And could we discover it in time?
That is a question I have wondered for a while.
We could discover the whole universe because:
- We have been beginning to find solutions for things (like electric rockets) to help stop space pollution. However, at the rate it has been happening, we may not find a solution in time and then we can get to the very tip of the universe.
- Technology is advancing, and we could invent a rocket powerful enough that it could travel against the speed of light and reach the end. (This is very unlikely, however, it is possible.)
- There may be another problem in space that we do not know of which could stop the growth of the universe.
We cannot discover the whole universe because:
- It is growing at the speed of light or faster; technology is very unlikely to be able to beat this pace of 186282 miles per second.
- Humans have not travelled far from Earth yet; as the universe could be destroyed by the time we develop the correct things to reach there, it would cease to exist.
- The universe could have it's own ways of keeping it expanding, meaning that it could be impossible to reach the end of the universe.
I believe that humans will not be able to discover the whole of the universe as the chances of things being able to reach that far at all are very slim. Necessary vitamins and minerals which are needed in human bodies could not be found meaning the they could die before arrival.
What do you think?
