There's the "Big Bang" theory, there's the "String" theory, black holes exist....or do they, there's black matter that nobody can find and unexplained energy, there's a partical that really has to exist but, so far, they havent been able to find it so now, I heard, if they cant find it then it doesnt exist and, as I said, there are a couple of moons happily spinning around Jupitor that have upset all the ideas on how planets and moons are formed, there's multi-verses, quantum physics, space is expanding and the expansion is getting faster...or is it? Theories come and go, one day they might find the definite answers until then just look at the beauty of the stars and wonder.
