We were not looking Orwellian Big Brother, but personally the Lord God, say astronomers. However, others suggest that we look at the devil himself. Both characters are located at 650 million light-years away in the same "point" of the universe – a spiral nebula NGC 7293. And not so far, only a two million light years from Earth has settled the Great Nothing – the space in which nothing at all.

Thousand eight hundred and twenty-fourth year. Pushkin finished the third chapter of “Eugene Onegin”. Melancholic Yakushkin still sharpening his knife tsareubiystvenny, before the uprising a year. A German astronomer Karl Harding, already famous for his discovery of the asteroid Juno, with delight and amazement looking through a telescope at a bright spot in the constellation Aquarius, immediately he called God’s Eye. After 183 years the space telescope “Hubble” makes beautiful pictures of the remains of this once exploded star.
Astronomers have no doubt – this beautiful facility with a dark “pupil” or blue “iris” is about nothing less than subjugate us as incredibly distant from the depths of space with light spiral nebula NGC 7293, which was formed after the explosion of a star. From the center of the explosion – “pupil” – dusty debris scatter and streaming gas flows, forming a really similar to the human eye image. And remembering the people’s desire to humanize even the Lord, and give him anthropomorphic features, it can be assumed that cosmic cataclysm is not a human, and God’s eye. After watching something on our NGC 7293 from the top!
However, it is like to say – or how to look. In the universe there is no concept of up and down, and the Helix Nebula – another name for the object NGC 7293, can be considered and located below, or on the side – whatever you like. And if the bottom is not whether this devilish eyes sardonically see us out of the hell? Could well be, and all-powerful “Hubble” confirms that filming is not only visible but also in the infrared (heat) rays. From the pictures on our looks fiery flames of hell pupil, surrounded by the iris of the infernal ice. One can not help thinking about the dual nature of the Creator, sent down to humanity not only the bliss of paradise on Hawaii’s beaches, but the Chernobyl disaster.
Telescope “Hubble”, named after the famous astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble, who discovered extragalactic nebulae and the law of the universe expands, the U.S. has managed NASA and European Space Agency a billion dollars. Made their flight in the vacuum of space around the Earth telescope able to observe and study objects that are impossible to detect from Earth due to interference by the atmosphere. “Hubble” in the 17 years of its existence has opened so many new things in the universe, only to describe his observations took about five thousand scientific articles. One of the most important discoveries – the establishment of the age of the universe, which was 13.7 billion years.
The question “what was before?” has not only an answer, but, according to scientists, and has no meaning, like the argument about the primacy of the egg or the chicken. Seems to be true, only the first – the answer yet, but the point should be.
Religious dogma of the creation of the universe and human kind of Supreme Being and can not satisfy even a clever first-grader who always ask – and who created the creature? And here is the lack of response and the science and religion can seriously believe that the assimilation of the object NGC 7293 “God” or “devil” eye no more fantastic than the unnatural laws of quantum mechanics or the resurrection of Lazarus. If you – and you too – do not know the main answers, then why should you – and you too – sure, in particular? Who gave you the right to assign an incredibly spectacular ridiculous combination of letters and Arabic numerals?
When a person overcomes another dogma of modern science – the impossibility of exceeding the speed of light (recently, such an experiment, alas, wrong), and to God / Devil’s eyes do not we get a billion years, and the following Thursday. That’s when we’ll see who we there waiting.
Who did the hole in the universe?
From the Devil’s eyes streamed hellish light in the infrared (photo: AP) Nature abhors a vacuum – as everybody knows. If there’s “nothing” – hence, there air or some other gas (poet Alexander Soprovsky altered expression of certain pro gaseous substances on their own – “a woman tends to occupy all the available volume and pressure on the wall”).
However, all also know that there is a vacuum, where exactly nothing. It is believed that the vacuum flask thermos inhabits in bulbs and in space – but this is incorrect. In a flask thermos really very little air pressure, but still some what there. Light bulbs have long been filled with inert gas krypton, which contributes to their longer work. And in the cosmos is full of asteroids, electromagnetic rays, cosmic rays and the mysterious “dark matter” and “dark energy”.
However, the full area of ??the vacuum in space there – and even discovered. And a lot of them and they are small. But recently, astronomers from the University of Minnesota (USA) opened a completely empty “flask,” which previously could not even imagine. Not far from us (on a cosmic scale), two million light-years, found a perfect vacuum region of incredible size.
In 1946 the American physicist George Gamoff who defected from the Soviet Union under the name of George Antonovich Gamow proposed the theory of the origin of the universe from the Big Bang, but also predicted the existence of the so-called background radiation that arose in the very first stage of the universe and still exists today.
In 1978, the Nobel Prize for his experimental confirmation of the theory and the discovery of the radiation received American Arno Penzias, who fled Nazi Germany, and Robert Wilson, who had escaped from nowhere and was born in the United States. It is this radiation is now exploring the satellite WMAP (”anisotropic microwave tester Wilkinson”) and have just discovered a huge absolutely empty space in the constellation Eridanus.
The “hole” there is nothing – not even the relic microwave radiation, which “pretends” Let extremely small, but nevertheless the temperature. And here a complete zero! And “here” has a size of one billion light years, or in more familiar to us units – ten thousand billion kilometers. Researchers surprised – nothing like not previously observed and destroys all the modern understanding of the structure of the universe.
I have no doubt that some of the religious leaders already in anticipation of future revenues, preparing to declare this “hole” of the habitat of God, which is not observable and fully meets the idea of ??a perfect vacuum. But I would suggest they first take the exam with questions about the device bulbs. At least for a triple. And then to run the legs in the CMB.
