I can't figure out what part to update next. I am lazy and lack direction. Someone tell me what to update.

Wormholes are wholly theoretical and I'm not really sure if I am comfortable enough putting them in here. Plus if I am not mistaken the energies needed to create one, assuming such a feat is possible, would probably never happen in nature and, so, wormholes would be less astronomy/physics and be more accurately described as technology.

But, eh. I'll try and tackle Black Holes. See what I can say on them besides "No one really knows. Have fun."

FACT: Star Trek, the new movie, is a documentary.

well, kodos, personally i'm interested in learning more about the big bang theory. not because i believe it necessarily, it's just interesting.
and please, nobody turn this into a religion thread.

i know it's a pretty broad subject, but in the very beginning of the big bang theory, there was supposedly just this super-condensed and heated mass of helium and hydrogen (?) right? i'm just wondering how those two elements are said to have made all the others.
or whatever was in the super-condensed molecule
