Did you ever wonder, who makes up all these theory’s of outer space and the wonders of the universe. The answer is people just like you and I. They are people with a lot of imagination running on a little knowledge they have acquired from somewhere. Example, people once had a theory that the earth was flat.but once it was proven to be round the theory became false and the round became fact and no longer a theory. also it was once thought the sun rotated around the earth that was a theory but finally disproved and the fact the earth rotates around the sun became a fact . another theory that nothing can travel faster than light speed now they have whole galaxies traveling faster than light.
So what is a theory, It’s a idea of the way you think, that things should work. If you think the Moon is flat, then that’s your theory not necessarily mine. I have a few theory’s which I would like to explain in greater detail. If you were in the middle of the known universe, you would be able to see stars in every direction, remember that statement. There would be no up , no down, no east, west, north or south, just universe in all directions.
From the middle of our known universe lets take a really fast trip to the most distant object known to man at the edge of our known universe. Once there try to find the edge, is there a wall of some sort to keep you from going any further. could it be nothing but dark matter, or maybe you would be staring at where you started from like circling the earth coming back to the beginning. My theory once you reached the so-called edge of the universe is “you would be able to see stars in every direction”. this is my theory of the universe.
A theory can be made by anyone, and if you are an astronomer or scientist or plain joe, what you believe the truth is your theory . A theory is not a fact a theory is like a speculation and a fact is the truth.But a theory is neither true or false until proven otherwise, it’s a best guess on the knowledge one possesses and a lot of imagination. Theory’s of the universe can be a good thing they lead too better knowledge and better theory’s to learn from.
