A documentary bound to anger some people, but it needs to be out there. If only to be mulled over and refuted..


It's not fringe per se or unfair (gives plenty of air time to big names like Kaku, Krauss, and Max Tegmark), but it questions the Cosmological Principle (but again, not in some fringe, flat earth sort of way).

Likely a copyright pull.
Yeah, very likely. I actually rented it myself, but want everyone to see it any way they can now (everyone interested in cosmology).

You mean video game? :) Never played the series. Recommend?
Oh, it's a classic, but only if you like that style of game :) It's a world builder, with minor diplomacy options. As described : "Originally created by legendary game designer Sid Meier, Civilization is a turn-based strategy game in which you attempt to build an empire to stand the test of time. Become Ruler of the World by establishing and leading a civilization from the Stone Age to the Information Age.". The reason I thought of it when you posted all the Alpha Centauri vids was because that was one of the ways you could "win" the game: by being the first to launch a spaceship to Alpha Centauri :)

why i always thinking that there more "rooms" beyond our sight?
there's more to find beyond and this is just a dot from a bigger picture

Because laws of maths and phys totally allow infinite (in size and/or in number) Universes. If that's the case then our local observable 'Universe' is just one of them.
Infinities and hyper dimensions scare the hell out of people because those theories can't be falsified atm but I'm sure sooner or later mankind will find out.

On ancient Mars, water carved channels and transported sediments to form fans and deltas within lake basins. Examination of spectral data shows that some of these sediments have minerals that indicate chemical alteration by water. Here in Jezero Crater delta, sediments contain clays and carbonates.

This Hubble Space Telescope mosaic is of a portion of the immense Coma cluster of > 1000 galaxies, located 300 million ly from Earth. Hubble's incredible sharpness was used to conduct a comprehensive census of the cluster's most diminutive members: a whopping 22426 globular star clusters.
