I had a look I find it truly amazing, but I have to ask how can they know these facts. A lot of it has to be out of sight of even the biggest telescope and there is no way they could have bounced light or radio waves of some of these stars or systems. So how do we know they are not just figments of some genius's imagination?

Yes I agree maths of some sort, probably a little more complicated than long division and multiplication. But surely they still have to be able to see them? How do you see something that is a million light years away?

Dunno............I will go and have a cup of tea and think about it...........Jim said that is my answer to everything LOL

I am sure there is a method but don't know how they do it.

I know how it is done, they get my wife to go out into the garden and shout in the direction of a star "Phil your tea is ready". Then they time how long the echo takes to bounce back. It wouldn't dare be more than 30 seconds.

Thanks Denise, nothing short of gorgeous, I get a bit of a bob on myself when I see a thing like that. To think that I am a part of it, yes a miniscule microscopic zillionth of a zllionth part but still a part of the unfathomable limitless beauty that has brought us all into being, not sure about Phil and SB. but certainly you and I, What else has this universe got up its sleeve.

I can't speak for SB, but they are still trying to fathom out what brought me in to existence. If they can only reproduce it they will have a template of the ideal man.

Denise,

Do you run a regular anti virus scan, registry cleaner, anti spyware and malware scans. You need to in addition to having your computer protected against all these horrors. Mind you I think I'm paranoid about it.
