I was sitting in the office of an energy consultant, and I could hear him shouting at the top of his lungs, “This is the best piece of news I’ve heard in a long time.”
As if on cue, the computerized voice of the geophysicist behind me started screaming, “There’s a new Giant-Earth-Hair-and-Earths-Mouth-Muffin Earth-Age Fossil,” and the engineer behind the keyboard added, “A new geologic age?”
My colleague and I were stunned.
“The old one,” I said.
“Oh my god,” he replied.
I looked up, realizing what I’d just heard.
This was a rare moment.
There had never been a new geological age, or a new fossil, on Earth since the first specimens were found by European explorers in the early 17th century.
But this was a new age—one of the biggest and most exciting discoveries in geology.
The first Giant-Earth-Hairy-Earthy-Early Earth (GEEEO) was found in 2006 in the Tunguska crater in Siberia.
The new Giant Earth was a world-first, a world of giants, geomasters, and super-geomasters.
The world was in a total meltdown.
It had reached the point of no return.
But it had also reached its peak.
As the sun was about to set on this world’s age, the universe was in an absolute frenzy.
Its universe, which had been split into pieces, was now exploding in a supernova of energy.
At the moment, this explosion was a single, huge and unprecedented event.
Scientists called it the Higgs Boson Event.
But for years now, scientists have been searching for the HBEEO particles that were produced during the explosion.
They’ve found a handful of particles, and they’re very promising.
But we don’t know what those particles are.
They’re not made of protons or neutrons, and even if they are, they’re not known to be Higgs bosons.
The universe is just too complex.
To fully understand what’s going on, we need to know the Big Bang.
The Big Bang has always been a mystery to scientists.
There’s no known way to predict what happens after the Big Break.
We’re always stuck with the Big Idea: that everything happens in one big bang.
The most recent theory, called the Standard Model, was developed by Nobel Prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman, and is the basis for the current scientific understanding of our universe.
The Standard Model is a model of how our universe evolved, but it’s not a theory.
There are hundreds of other theories.
Each of them are better at describing the nature of our cosmos, and many are based on observations and experiments.
In general, though, most scientists agree that we know everything we need know about our universe and that our universe is expanding.
In addition, the Standard Models predict that all of our observable universe is about 2.8 billion years old, or about 1.7 billion billion years after the big bang—a remarkably long age for a universe that was once billions of years old.
And yet, we still don’t have a handle on what the Big Crunch will look like.
We don’t even know how big it is.
When the universe started, it had a mass of about 100,000 gigaelectronvolts.
Today, that amount is about 100 trillion.
That’s more than 100 million times more powerful than the lightest electron in the universe.
If we can calculate how many gigaelections the universe has, it’s easy to predict how much mass it will have when the Big Bump hits.
The HBEECO particle, or the one that was found last year in the asteroid Tunga, is a Higgs particle.
And it’s made up of exactly one electron, called a proton.
If the Proton had mass, it would be an electron with a mass about 100 million electronvolts—a million million times as massive as the sun.
But because it’s just a particle, it can’t be an atom.
The proton is a quantum mechanical object.
We’ve known since the early 1960s that a particle like the electron, which has a mass and can have two electrons, can exist in a very small state.
This is called a superposition, and if you’re willing to accept it for a moment, it means that the electron’s mass is exactly zero.
The particle, which is made of two electrons and two protons, has a unique, special property.
It has two unique properties.
One is that it can have both a positive and negative charge, which means it can behave as an electron.
The other is that if it were an electron, it could be turned into a positron, which also has a positive charge. But
