I <3 science. I kinda wish that Ricciolo had actually done the “drop a rock from a really high tower to prove the Earth is moving” experiment.
I love science too, but it’s terrifying
Someone explained to me how a feather and a brick will fall at the same speed in a vacuum and it made my brain hurt
My chemistry teacher explained how matter, including a human body, is mostly comprised of empty space, and I spent the rest of class poking things to try to wrap my head around it
Another teacher explained what the Large Hadron Collider was doing, and I nearly cried.
I read online how the universe is over 90 billion light-years wide, but only 13 billion years old, but that none of the objects is moving faster-than-light, the empty space between the objects is expanding. I almost pooped myself.
