Fabric of Space-Time [astrophysics] Part – 2

What is the best gift of modern physics?

Modern Physics has given the most valuable asset to the world of science. Principles that are used to describe our nature are limited. many laws are being stated and few of them succeed in proving them theoretically and sometimes experimentally, few are proved wrong.

One such curious concept read over decades, it’s also a mind-boggling concept. It is space – time. let’s see what I can say about it.

Do you know about space?

Space which is 3-Dimensional or multidimensional quantity along with planes in their curves [space-time fabric], entities will be much complex. Few people have believed that double slit experiment of physics leads to the wave nature of light, So usual science and its thoughts transformed then.

Space is the boundless three-dimensional extent in which objects and events have relative position and direction. Physical space is often conceived in three linear dimensions, although modern physicists usually consider it, with time, to be part of a boundless four-dimensional continuum known as spacetime.

space is everything in the universe beyond the top of the Earth’s atmosphere – the Moon, where the GPS satellites orbit, Mars, other stars, the Milky Way, black holes, and distant quasars. this statement defines space, which is rather part of the universe, not to consider as a physical quantity.

What about time? Good time, bad time

Time is a very fascinating thing in this universe, is that time what that clock shows? or time is beyond our imagination? research says, In the beginning of time there was a singularity, where our time started. but the concept of time breaks the laws of physics. many contradictory statements are noticed to say whether the time is absolute or time is relative. but anyway modern physics and its triumph in theoretical research declared time as a non-absolute quantity.

Time and space is a continuum, we don’t have proper evidence to say time is universal, In other words, since there is no universal time. we have no time, which we can synchronize clocks. In this real world, what we also call a macroscopic world, here it’s very difficult to notice.

but man made things like space vehicles and satellites which travel in space are synchronized. For GPS to work we must make sure those are adjusted to similar bending of space time to coordinates of systems present in the earth.
